WESTFIELDS WIN AT BISHOPS CLEEVE
Westfields recorded their second pre-season victory of the season when they won away at Southern League South & West side Bishops Cleeve in an entertaining pre-season friendly.
Westfields started brightly and snatched an early lead through Aidan Thomas who got on the end of a through ball from Phil Glover, rounded his marker and coolly slotted past the advancing keeper.
Westfields had one or two good chances in the early stages to increase the lead when Ben Hayes fired wide and Thomas also had a chance to add to his tally when he too fired at the home keeper.
Just before the break Bishops Cleeve equalised when James Febery misplaced a pass across his own defence line which was intercepted by the home striker who took the chance to level the scores just before the interval.
After the break Westfields were caught on the counter-attack when Bishops Cleeve got free on the half-way line and although John Hopkins did well to parry the first shot, the home striker followed up to head home the rebound to put Bishops Cleeve 2-1 in front.
However, Westfields came back strongly and good wing play by Aidan Thomas and Ben Hayes created further chances before Westfields drew level when Phil Glover headed home at the far post.
Westfields then introduced Carlos Moreira and he injected further pace into the attack and Westfields snatched the lead when Ben Hayes went on a mazy run and fired home a cracking drive from the underside of the crossbar. This goal put Westfields in front and it looked as though they were going to build on their lead when Matt Sysum got on the end of a corner kick but his powerful header was well taken by the home keeper.
Hayes almost added a fourth goal but his shot went over the bar as Westfields finished strongly against their higher-graded opposition.
On Thursday Westfields travel to Malvern Town, kick-off 7.45pm, and on Saturday Westfields open up their home pre-season friendlies when they entertain Welsh League side Caersws, kick-off 4pm, and then the following Tuesday entertain Southern League South & West side Slimbridge at 7.45pm at allpay.park.
