WESTFIELDS UP TO THIRD
Westfields recorded an excellent 5-1 away win last night at a bitterly cold Boldmere St Michaels when playing on their new 3G pitch. Westfields enjoyed returning to form with 3 valuable points.
Westfields were gifted a 1st minute lead when Anthony Fitzsimons when under pressure from Dan Polan shot through his own goal to give Westfields an early lead and despite early dominance and some clever wing play by both Sam Gwynne and Aidan Thomas Westfields didn’t increase their lead until the 45th minute when right on half time Richard Greaves was on the spot to deflect a Craig Jones shot over the Boldmere goal line.
Earlier, Sam Gwynne had rattled the Boldmere crossbar with a tremendous shot from outside the penalty area but after the break Westfields came alive when substitutes Ben Miller, Nick Harrhy and Chris Ham were all introduced to the attack and Westfields began to open up the Boldmere defence with some clever play on the beautiful new 3G surface.
Good work by Dylan Bonella opened up the Boldmere defence for Ben Miller to go through and score with a low shot in the 85th minute and then Craig Jones lobbed the Boldmere keeper for Westfields’ 4th and then right at the death Nick Harrhy scored a fine goal when he met a Ben Miller cross to turn the ball home into the roof of the net.
Westfields were also thwarted by some tremendous goal-keeping by the Boldmere keeper Nick Feeney who had a tremendous evening, saving brilliantly from Craig Jones on 2 occasions.
The Westfields win hoisted them up into 3rd place as they now begin to catch up from their epic FA Cup run with league matches.
On Saturday they return to Cup duty when they travel to 4th place Coleshill Town, another team playing on a 3G pitch, when they meet in the 3rd Round of the Buildbase FA Vase, kick-off 3pm at Coleshill Town.
