Bradninch Town v Westexe Park Rangers PREVIEW


Bradninch Town – DDLWW

Westexe Park Rangers – WLWWW

Despite a slow start to the campaign, Murray’s men have really put their foot on the gas in the last couple of weeks and go into the Devon Intermediate Cup Third Round with unsurprising levels of confidence.

Westexe Park Rangers are the outfit that Town will have to put to the sword in order to reach the final sixteen of the competition. Something that Murray sees as very possible;

“We may be underdogs in terms of the standard we both play at and the fact they are a division above of us. But with home advantage, I really believe that we have a great chance. I’m confident.”

As Murray said, WPR compete in a division above Town – currently sitting pretty, off the back of two successive league wins, in fifth.

A Ninch win which has since been something of a catalyst for a good run of form. Murray expressed his delight with the players passion and character, and it is exactly that which he’ll be hoping can be carried into this weekends game.

An emphatic victory for Westexe with goals coming from George Harvey x3, Dominic Perrot x3, Terence Singleton x2 and Tom Bedingham. The latter being a very familiar face after he turned out for the Ninch a few times in pre-season not so long ago.


Unfortunately, Murray’s men are once again restricted by a fairly long list of ongoing injuries;

“We still have an extensive injury list as well as a few players unavailable this weekend due to personal engagements. I can confirm that we will be without Shrews, Liam, JR, Cam and just recently Coops has also had to pull out due to illness.” 

He went on to say,

“We are still waiting on a couple of players regarding their availability as well. However, this weekend does see the return of club favorite Harry Foster. He’s made the journey all the way from Manchester Uni and this alone has lifted the lads spirit even more. It’ll be great to have him back. He’s an extraordinarily talented footballer.”

Welcome back, Harry!

We have already surpassed last seasons run in the Devon Intermediate Cup and victory tomorrow would undoubtedly be one of the biggest wins since Murray took charge of the club.

Kick-Off is at the earlier time of 2pm, and as always admission to the ground is free.

Come and support the boys as we look to book our place in the last sixteen.
