WELLINGTON’S football manager Clive Jones has appealed to supporters to ‘turn up in their numbers’ for his side’s last Saturday game of the season in Division One of the Toolstation League this weekend - home v second from bottom Calne Town (3.00).
“We’ve had a great season but we just can’t get over the line,” said Jones yesterday. “We’ve had good gates this season and that helps the players. I’m hoping as many people as possible will come.
“I would like to finish off our Saturday League programme at the Playing Field with a big win.
“After this we’ve got one more home game - a big one against Chard Town on Easter Monday.
“We’re so close and yet so far away. The lads are giving it all they can but it’s not happening at the moment.”
Wellington are lying second in the table but leaders Hengrove were due to play at Cheddar last night and will have stretched their lead at the top to six points if they won. .
Meanwhile, Wellington will be in action tonight (April 5) when they play away to 17th placed Warminster Town in a rearranged league game.
Wellington should be at near full-strength although there is a doubt over experienced centre back Tim Legg who does not get back from a trip to Spain until sometime today.
“We’re not quite sure what time he will be back,” added Jones who rates the centre-back pairing of Tom Ellis and Legg as good “as anything in the league.”
Wellington Reserves were due to play at home to bottom side Bickleigh in Division One of the Devon and Exeter League over the weekend but the game was postponed because the Devon side could not raise a side. It is the Reserves’ last match of the season and it has been rearranged for Saturday, April 15 - on the main pitch at the Playing Field.
Hemyock are away to Silverton in Division Six this Saturday while Wellington Thirds have only one more game in Division Seven - away v Bickleigh Reserves on Saturday, April 22.
