FA CUP THRILLER

Westfields went through in the Extra Preliminary Round of the FA Cup when they eased past near neighbours and Midland League rivals Stourport Swifts 4-3 in a nail-biting pulsating FA Cup tie at Walshes Meadow on Saturday.

Westfields fell behind in the 6th minute when Joe Parkinson shot home from close range after a right wing cross.

Westfields settled down and scored twice in the 34th and 37th minutes when Aidan Thomas got in menacing left wing crosses and first Jamie Molyneux then James Baldwin fired home to give Westfields a 2-1 interval lead.

After the break Parkinson put Stourport level to set up a cracking FA Cup tie then it was substitute Sirdic Grant who came on to turn the game in Westfields’ favour with 2 amazing bursts of speed.

The winger received the ball in the 87th minute on the half way line and burst forward to go past the Stourport defence and plant a low shot past the Stourport keeper to put Westfields 3-2 ahead.

However, the all-action game continued and Stourport equalised in the 89th minute when Matt Fulloway headed home to make it 3-3 and a replay seemed certain.

Westfields then snatched a dramatic winner deep into injury time when Sirdic Grant chased a through ball and sped past the Stourport defence only to be brought down by the Stourport keeper and from the penalty Craig Jones shot home the winner from the “spot” to give Westfields a pulsating 4-3 away win and a home tie v Tividale on Saturday 20th August, 3pm kick-off at allpay.park in the next round.

Westfields: Blackburn, Rawlings, Plane, Glover, Kahaki, Gwynne, Jones, Thomas, Greaves, Molyneux, Baldwin.
