Whitehawk make the trip to Somerset on Saturday looking to improve on recent results.

The Hawks go into the game on the back of a disappointing defeat to Hampton & Richmond last weekend, and will look to put right some wrongs from the 3-1 reverse.

Steve King’s side welcome Simon Mensah and Ibrahim Fofana to the squad, with both looking to make their competitive debuts for the Hawks after impressing in friendly matches in recent weeks.

Mensah has been granted international clearance after playing in Sweden for Eskilstuna, whilst Fofana joins from Bostik Premier side Merstham.

There may well also be another addition to the starting line-up by kick-off, with the club unable to confirm the signing at the time of writing.

Leaving the Hawks is Eddie Wakley, who has joined Gosport Borough.

Wakley had made a handful of appearances for the TerraPura Ground outfit under Jimmy Dack, but has been allowed to leave after Steve King’s arrival.

We wish Eddie all the best for the future.

Weston-Super-Mare come into the game looking to return to winning ways after going three games without a win.

The Woodspring Stadium side were held to a 2-2 draw at Concord Rangers last time out, with the Seagulls coming from 2-0 down at half-time to earn a point.

They sit 16th in the National League South table, with three wins and six draws from their fifteen league games to date.

Danger Man:


Dayle is one of the finest products of the club’s academy. He captained the youth team and made the transition into the senior team seamlessly. He made history by becoming the clubs first ever full-time member of the playing staff, and last season worked alongside the Seagulls In The Community Trust.

He has caught the eye of the England C selectors and earned acclaim from both his colleagues and his manager at the 2014/15 season’s awards ceremony, taking home the Players’ Player and Manager’s Player of the Year gongs.

Then-Weston boss Ryan Northmore said, “Dayle is an outstanding talent. I want to work with the best players possible at this level and Dayle is certainly one of those.”

Next Up:

After making the trip to Somerset, the Hawks’ attention turns to the Senior Cup, where Eastbourne Town are the visitors to the TerraPura Ground on Tuesday night.

The Road to the AMEX begins with a potentially tricky tie against one of the Southern Combination Premier League’s high-fliers.

Kick off is at 19:45 on Tuesday 31 October.
