BRIDGWATER Town have freshened up their attacking options with a double signing this week.

The Robins, whose match at Tavistock last night (Wednesday) was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, have snapped up Oscar Latas from Melksham Town and Noah Coppin on dual registration terms with Taunton Town.

Coppin is part of the Bridgwater & Taunton College football academy and played for the Robins’ Under-18s in this season’s run to the FA Youth Cup first round, while he has scored 26 goals in the South West Counties Youth League as well as regularly featuring in Taunton Town's matchday squad this season.

Latas, meanwhile, has also represented Street and Bridport in addition to his most recent stint at Southern League outfit Melksham.

“Karl [Baggaley] and I felt we needed to freshen things up a bit and give ourselves a few more options,” Pearse said.

“There is a game coming up where we are set to be without Jack Taylor and Steve Murray, and I’ll still be suspended, so Noah is likely to get a chance to impress.

“Oscar offers us something different and can play either up front or as an attacking midfielder."

Pearse went on to outline his belief that his side have “turned a corner” as they prepare for a busy festive spell in their push for promotion.

As well as the trip to Tavistock, the Robins also saw their game at Odd Down postponed last Saturday, a blow for a confident side looking to build on impressive away wins at Keynsham Town (league) and Wells City (Les Phillips Cup) the previous week.

“It is frustrating as I feel we have turned a corner,” Pearse said.

“All the lads are desperate to play and they all turned up to train on Saturday instead.

“We had a good social meet up afterwards, all the squad were there - we are in a good place.

“I think we have the bit between our teeth now and I hope that continues.”

On Saturday, Town are back on home soil for their first Saturday match at Fairfax Park since October 26, with Brislington the visitors.

“We have had one game in nine at home so it will be great to be back there,” Pearse said.

“We owe Brislington one massively for the first game of the season [a 1-0 defeat] so I think we’ll be right up for it.”

Saturday's game is preceded by a fans' forum with co-managers Pearse and Karl Baggaley, which begins at 12.45pm.
