Pre-season match Preview ~ Stourbridge Vs Bees


By Sarah Tunney
August 7 2004

After months of waiting, the 2004/2005 season is nearly here!!! This Saturday the Bees have their first of five pre-season friendly games against Stourbridge. Kick off 3pm at Stourton Park

This Saturday will be your first chance to see the Bees new signings in action as we travel across the Midlands to Stourbridge.

There should be a few familiar faces on Saturday as there may be a few ex bees’ players in the Stourbridge pack. Ex Bees coaches Paul Williams and Dave Spenser moved to Stourbridge when Phil Maynard tuck up the role at the Bees.

Nathan Bressington, Gordie Houston, Paul Meadows, Simon Pettit, Adam Sturdy and Sam Viggers are all in the first team who may be facing their old club.

Bees’ hooker Rob Merritt may also be facing his former club for the game. Before coming to the Bees, Merritt had the most consecutive appearances (48) for Stourbridge and was the only ever present player for the 2001/02 season. He also made the most appearances by a forward for the club with 175.
