A young Romans side will travel to Taunton Town tomorrow night for a Somerset Premier Cup 2nd Round fixture. Kick off – 7:45pm at The Cygnet Health Care Stadium!
With the tie finally happening on Wednesday evening (original date 13 November), we will be forced to field a young squad given that we have several injuries, five ineligible because of the date of the original tie, and loan players unavailable. Jordan Simpson will captain the side with Harvey Wiles-Richards in goal.
