SWINDON St George skipper Connor Tomley says Somerset Vikings present the perfect challenge for his side this weekend.

Victory over Vikings at home will see Swindon take ownership of top spot in the South West League West of England Pool A table, as they look to avenge their only defeat of the season.

After a weekend off, Tomley, who has returned from a groin injury to feature at Supermarine, says the whole squad are desperate to right a wrong when they get on the pitch this Saturday.

“The break has been good and bad,” he said.

“It’s good because we have had a rest, but it’s bad because it means you’re a bit stop-start through the season, and then you have to go back at it again. It is a little bit hit and miss.

“Obviously you want to keep playing and keep going because then you can build on what you are doing.

“They’re the only team who have beaten us, so we are looking to get out of the gates quickly, like they did when we played them last time.

“There is a lot of a buzz around now, there is a lot of confidence about the club.

“There is a good feeling around training. Everyone seems to be in a good place and we are ready for the weekend.”

After leaving their last game a fortnight ago with a long injury list, Tomley says the week off will only have been a good thing for the squad's fitness.

Ahead of his own return to action, the skipper says it is good to have a sense of depth to the group again.

“I trained on Wednesday night and it felt good," said Tomley.

"I’m looking forward to getting back into it, but that first hit will take its toll.

“The week off did give the people who were injured a bit of time to get back to being fit.

“There are four or five of us coming back this weekend, which is great. It is good for the twos as well because they aren’t struggling to find players after we have nicked them.

“It’s all starting to click and it is looking exciting again.”
