Weston to host City Under-23s

Bristol City’s Under-23s will be playing at Weston-super-Mare’s Optima Stadium next season.

The club have agreed a one-year deal for Weston-super-Mare AFC to host the majority of their home Premier League Development fixtures, which will usually be played on Monday afternoons.

City Chief Executive Officer Mark Ashton said: “We have an excellent relationship with Weston through our loan arrangement and now we are extending this to their high-quality facilities.

“The Under-23s will eventually be based and play their games at the new Failand training base, but to have an alternative venue in the short-term when games are not at Ashton Gate is important for Luke Williams and his squad.”

Tom Harrison, George Nurse and Aaron Parsons are currently on loan at Weston-super-Mare.

Weston-super-Mare AFC Richard Sloane said: “It is great to see that our pitch and facilities are of such a high quality to attract competitions like this to the Optima Stadium. This arrangement further cements the excellent relationship between the two clubs which includes the loan signings which have been so beneficial over the past few seasons.”
