Whites travel to Harrow for first game in over a week

Ten days will have passed by the time this weekend’s fixture at Harrow Borough since Salisbury beat Plymouth Parkway last time out.

A combination of match postponements and no league fixture have given Brian Dutton’s team an unexpected early season break.

Salisbury are currently on a great run of league form, winning their last three games, putting them second in the table, just two points behind leaders Gosport Borough.

Harrow, on the other hand, come into the game one place above the relegation zone, having not won a league game since the end of September. Their last league outing was a heavy 4-1 defeat at home to Bracknell Town.

During their downtime, Salisbury have had a bit of a reshuffle in their squad with Devon Arnold leaving in search of more game time, and Salisbury made a new signing.

Joining the squad is 22-year-old Wayne Robinson, who joins from Sholing. He will be known to the supporters who travelled to see Salisbury’s last league defeat at the end of September when Robinson scored the opener for Sholing.

Brian Dutton told the club website, “I’m delighted to bring Wayne to Salisbury; he has really impressed me this season and is the perfect fit for the type of winger I want. He will bring fierce competition to the attacking areas of our team this season.”

Dutton added of Arnold’s departure, “Devon is a player who needs to be starting matches and clearly became frustrated with the lack of game time he’s had this season.

He’s been very unlucky, picking up a bad injury in pre-season followed by another injury soon after.

Due to the scintillating form of both Josh Hedges and Noah Coppin, I couldn’t guarantee the game time he wants and needs.

We wish Devon luck with his next chapter.”

The game kicks off at the Rogers Family Stadium, Harrow at 3pm this Saturday (4th November) at 3pm.
