WESTFIELDS TOIL IN THE HEAT

Westfields gave a first-class performance away at Southern League South & West Cinderford Town on Saturday and drew one each.

The game was played in high temperatures on a hot sunny afternoon but both sides served up good football.

Westfields carved open the Cinderford defence early on and both Aidan Thomas and Jamie Molyneux had great opportunities to put Westfields ahead before Cinderford Town scored against the run of play when a through ball caught Keiron Blackburn and his defence unawares and when the ball wasn’t cleared up-field Cinderford took the opportunity to go 1-0 ahead. 

Westfields still had good opportunities to have got back into the game and Molyneux fired wide when well placed as the home side went in at the break 1-0 ahead.

Cinderford, who are led by former Westfields FA Cup legend Richard Greaves, were then under early pressure and Westfields drew level with a stunning goal just into the start of the second half when Aidan Thomas fired in a low shot from the edge of the penalty area to put the sides level.

Westfields then should have taken the lead when Molyneux hit the post from close range and then Aidan Thomas miss-kicked in front of goal as Westfields began to open up the home defence.

Westfields’ manager Andy Bevan then brought on a number of changes including substitute goalkeeper Ian Havard who dealt with everything confidently in the Westfields goal.

Both sides had opportunities to have snatched a win in the last few moments when Greaves headed over the Westfields crossbar from close range and Jamie Molyneux hit a free kick over the Cinderford crossbar from just outside the penalty area.

Westfields now play three home pre-season friendlies, starting tomorrow night Tuesday 24th July when they entertain Hellenic Premier Division side Tuffley Rovers from Gloucester and then on Saturday they meet Welsh League side Builth Wells and the following Tuesday entertain another Hellenic League Premier Division side Bishops Cleeve.
