Danny previews the upcoming week, as well as looking at events that happened on this day for the week commencing 12th December.

THE WEEK AHEAD

Saturday – TUFC v Chippenham @ Plainmoor (15.00 KO)

It’s a break from league action this weekend as Chippenham visit in the FA Trophy. The ‘Bluebirds’ have beaten United 3 of the last 4 times, including a friendly, and a double back in the NLS days. Chippenham have struggled for form this season, currently sitting 21st in the NLS, having beaten Hastings in the last round.

Saturday – TUFC U18’s v Bridgwater U18’s @ South Devon College Sports Centre (10.30 KO)

The weather reeked havoc last weekend, resulting in a postponement away at Bath. But the young Gulls’ have an opportunity to make it 5 wins from 6 league games as they host top of the table Bridgwater.

PLAYED FOR BOTH

Ex-United midfielder Jake Andrews had a couple of successful loan spells at Chippenham before his permanent move to Plainmoor in 2019. Yan Klukowski spent his early days in Wiltshire before a move, via several different clubs, to Torquay in 2017. Chris Zebroski spent his later years at Hardenhush Park after 141 appearances for the Gulls’.
