Shortwood United 1 - Cox 64
WESTFIELDS GET PIPPED AT SHORTWOOD
Westfields visited Southern League South & West team Shortwood United for the first time ever in a pre-season friendly on Saturday but were pipped 1-0 despite dominating the game for long periods.
Westfields enjoyed good possession and in fact had 2 golden opportunities to open the scoring in the first-half when both Richard Greaves and Aidan Thomas saw point-blank efforts brilliantly saved by the home keeper.
Westfields’ defence worked hard when Shortwood did attack and Kane Kahaki twice cleared dangerous crosses away.
Just on half-time Ben Miller had a superb shot go inches wide of the post as Westfields threatened to take the lead.
After the break Westfields introduced substitutes Carlos Moreira, Sam Gwynne and Lewis Platt to try and create further openings but Westfields fell behind mid-way through the half when a long clearance from the home keeper eluded the Westfields defence and the home striker went through to coolly slot the ball low past John Hopkins in the Westfields goal.
Westfields came back and Richard Greaves had a great chance when a firm cross came in from the left from Lewis Platt but Greaves saw his shot cleared off the line and then the home keeper twice cut out menacing crosses as Westfields put skipper Phil Glover up front to try and add more punch to the Westfields attack.
In the end Westfields could not penetrate the Shortwood defence and suffered their second away defeat in pre-season friendlies.
On Tuesday Westfields visit Bishops Cleeve and on Thursday Westfields visit Malvern Town before they return to play a home fixture against Welsh League side Caersws at allpay.park on Saturday 29th July, kick-off 4pm. The following Tuesday, 1st August, Westfields play hosts to Southern League South & West side Slimbridge, kick-off 7.45pm, at allpay.park.
