Natalie Kaye - 23rd February 2007

3pm on Saturday 24th February 2007
Nationwide Conference

Woking travel to the south coast on Saturday to play Weymouth in the league. The Terras currently sit 11th in the table.

On July 3rd 2005 the club turned professional on a full time basis, thus becoming football's only full time side outside of the National Conference. Gary Hill took the club to the Conference South title; 8 points ahead of nearest rivals St Albans. They lost just once at home all season, but were beaten 7 times on the road. They reached the 1st round of the FA Cup before being knocked out by Nottingham Forest after a replay. Chukki Eribenne and ?our? Raph Nade both top scored with 13 each, closely followed by Matt Bound with 12.

Weymouth have suffered something of a slump recently after an excellent start to Conference life at the start of the campaign. They are currently 11th in the league, having not won a game this year. Their last victory was impressive though; 2-1 at home to Exeter. Home form has been excellent, with just 3 losses at the Wessex Stadium. Form on the road is patchy, with 4 wins and 8 losses. On Saturday they lost 1-0 up at York City. Steve Bowey?s goal in injury time at the end of the match made it an even longer journey home for the Weymouth faithful.

Former boss Gary Hill bought back Raph on loan from Carlisle for the season, along with Simon Weatherstone, who signed during pre-season from Conference rivals Stevenage. Nick Crittenden is another new face this season. He was Garry Hill's first summer signing joining the Terras from rivals Aldershot Town, and has added stacks of experience to the midfield. Player-manager Jason Tindall has recently boosted his ranks by signing a trio of youngsters. Conal Platt from Bournemouth and Adam Cottrell from Millwall have both signed one month loan deals, and Danny Phillips, formerly with Charlton, has signed on non-contract basis.
