Preview - Bath City - 10 Nov - KO15:00
Ray Corner & Peter Carter
We welcome Bath City to The Vale this Saturday (10 Nov) for our latest Vanarama National League South game, kick off 15:00
Our visitors are presently sitting in 5th place on 25 points from their 15 games played having won 8, drawn 1 and lost 6 scoring 23 and conceding 13 goals. On their last league outing they suffered a 0-1 home defeat to Hemel Hempstead Town last Saturday in front of a crowd of 916
The Stones management team and squad will be looking to maintain the high levels of commitment and application out on the pitch in what is turning out to be a very competitive league campaign.
We can expect another close and hard fought encounter with the 'Romans', so get behind the lads from the off, make plenty of noise and offer support throughout the 90+ minutes of play.
This Saturday we will remember those members of the club that fell in both World Wars with the unveiling of a new ‘Memorial’, a Stained and Fused Glass Panel measuring 900mm x 600mm featuring soldiers in a field of poppies along with names of the fallen.
Presentation of the new 'Memorial' will be conducted ahead of kick-off to Chairman Peter Marsden and Club President Paul Rumens by two Wealdstone fans who are both serving members of the armed forces, Andy Gibbs representing the Royal Navy and Sam Morris representing The Army
There will then follow a number of ceremonies to mark the occasion, these will include a wreath laying, a minute’s silence and also a sounding of the Last Post by bugler Jordan Low.
ALL fans are asked to be in the stadium by 14:45 on Saturday.
