Weston-super-Mare Association Football Club is a semi-professional football club based in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, England. Nicknamed "The Seagulls", the club is affiliated to the Somerset County Football Association and currently competes in the National League South, the sixth tier of English football.Team Members
The club was founded in 1887 but disbanded twice (for the two World Wars); the current club was established in 1948. Their claim to fame is that they have never been relegated in their history, although since their promotion to the sixth tier in 2004 they have been reprieved from relegation three times (in 2007, 2008 and 2010). The team's best performance in the FA Cup came in 2003–04 when they reached the second round of the competition.
Weston-super-Mare has a modest fan base and a fierce rivalry with fellow Somerset club Clevedon Town. However, the two clubs have not played in the same league since Weston-super-Mare gained promotion to the Southern League Premier Division in 2003.
= Contract years remainingStadium or Home
Weston-super-Mare A.F.C. play their home games at Optima Stadium on Winterstoke Road, where the club moved to in August 2004. They previously played at Woodspring Park a short distance away. The move marked the third time in the past 40 years that Weston-super-Mare have changed venues. The capacity of Optima Stadium is 3,500 in which 2,000 is covered and 350 are seated.
Woodspring Park had been built almost entirely by supporters and boasted a clubhouse costing £100,000. The Park had been the home of Weston-super-Mare since 1983 and had floodlights installed in 1986. Weston-super-Mare sold this ground to a residential home builder when it became apparent the club was going to move the short distance to the Optima Stadium. The last home fixture was played in April 2004.
The ground for what is now Optima Stadium was formerly a sporting complex owned by Westland Aircraft known as Westland Sports Ground. It was home to cricket and football in addition to social buildings. Difficult financial times forced Westland to reconsider their place in town and put the ground up for sale. The club purchased it for £270,000 in 2001. The Stadium opened 14 August 2004, with its first match against Conference South opponents Hornchurch drawing 500 people to the game.
The record attendance for this ground 2,949 in a match in the FA Cup against Doncaster Rovers on 18 November 2014. Fanart
