Farnborough return to action for their second fixture of the Bank Holiday weekend with a trip to Bolitho Park to take on newly-promoted Truro City.
It’s back-to-back fixtures against promoted sides for Boro, who blitzed past Weston-super-Mare last time out. Goals from Alfie Pavey, Connor Cullen and an own goal gave the hosts a comfortable 3-0 win to start off the long weekend with a bang.
The win lifted Farnborough up into ninth place in The Vanarama National League South after stretching their unbeaten run to four games.
Truro City have had an inconsistent start to life back in The Vanarama National League South. However, they also began their August Bank Holiday with a win, as Adam Porter’s 74th minute goal gave the White Tigers a 1-0 win away at Eastbourne Borough, lifting them from 20th up to 14th in the table.
Looking ahead to the game, Manager Spencer Day had this to say about the trip to Devon: “They’ve had a brilliant win at Eastbourne, they’ve got a really good group of hard-working players and some real quality as well.”
“A lot of teams go down there and get beat with the distance – because it is very hard – but we’ve prepared the whole weekend.
“It’s really tough on the players, really hard shift today [against Weston-super-Mare] and then you’ve got to drive four to five hours to get there. Fingers crossed it will be a good game and everyone gets down there safely.”
The last time these two sides met at Bolitho Park was back in 2021. A last-minute own goal from Zac Hartley gave Boro a point on the road after going two goals down. In the reverse fixture, Boro came away with a 2-0 win thanks to a quick-fire brace from Paul Hodges.
A fantastic start to the Bank Holiday weekend last time out. Let’s keep this momentum going. Come on Farnborough!
