WESTFIELDS HIT SIX IN AWAY VICTORY AT WOOTTON BASSETT
Westfields welcomed back Craig Jones and Matt Reeve to their line-up away at Royal Wootton Bassett last night and the changes made by manager Phil Glover made all the difference as the inspirational midfield pair produced tremendous performances to enable Westfields to take all their chances and come home with the 3 valuable points.
Westfields played slick quick football on a beautifully prepared Wootton Bassett pitch that suited Westfields’ attacking style and it only took Aidan Thomas a short while to put Westfields ahead when he got on the end of a Craig Jones pass to open the scoring.
Midway through the half Richard Greaves was bundled over in the penalty area but he got up and took the penalty to put Westfields 2-0 ahead from the spot.
Wootton Bassett briefly came back into the game and just before the break Harvey Rivers was forced to make an excellent save with his legs to prevent the home side pulling a goal back just before the interval.
After the break Thomas was again on the spot to put Westfields 3-0 ahead before Royal Wootton Bassett pulled a goal back through Alfie Presley to put the score at 3-1.
However, within 60 seconds Westfields were back in front at 4-1 when Richard Greaves got on the end of an Aidan Thomas cross and then Craig Jones scored a 5th with a blistering shot from just inside the penalty area before substitute Keanu Cooper scored a spectacular 6th goal after being put through with a brilliant ball from Richard Greaves.
Westfields really took their chances and hoisted themselves up into 4th position where on Saturday they meet 5th in the table Ardley at home at allpay.park, kick-off 3pm.
Next Tuesday Westfields face local rivals Lydney Town in the Hellenic League Floodlit Cup, kick-off 7.45pm, but they face a blank date on Saturday 14th September as they are knocked out of the FA Cup and it’s FA Cup day.
Westfields will unveil their new C J Insurance sponsored home kit on Saturday in their match v Ardley when manager Phil Glover is expected to have a full squad to pick from apart from the injured Ollie Butler who is suffering a back injury.
