BOTH Bridgwater Town Reserves and Middlezoy Rovers have said they can't wait for tonight's derby Somerset Senior Cup clash.

Somerset County League new boys Middlezoy have turned a few heads already this season, after picking up six wins from ten outings in Division Two West to leave them in third place.

Meanwhile, Bridgwater are mid-table in the Premier Division with three wins to their name from 12 matches.

Middlezoy manager Johnny Warren said he is very proud of the direction the club is moving in.

He added: “We are all looking forward to this derby clash, which I am sure will be the first of many.

“The players have been fantastic all season and this will give us the belief that we are a match for anyone at this level. It will be a tough game but we are confident of getting a result."

Town captain Kenzie Farnham, who used to play for Middlezoy, said: “We should have a strong team out and we have a lot of respect for them even though we know there's a lot of bragging rights on the match.

“I think they'll be a lot of people coming down and it should be a great game.”

Kick-off at Fairfax Park is 7.45pm. Keep an eye on the website should the game be cancelled due to the recent poor weather.
