WESTFIELDS THROUGH IN THE FA CUP
Westfields started their FA Cup journey with a fine 3-1 home win over visiting Bewdley Town at allpay.park on Saturday in front of 219 spectators.
The game produced an exciting Cup tie against 2 footballing sides but Westfields edged it with some clinical finishing.
Both goalkeepers were in early action but it was Matt Sysum, Westfields’ new signing from Southern League South & West side North Leigh, who put Westfields ahead in the 32nd minute when he rifled home from 8 yards to give Westfields a 1-0 interval lead.
After the break, Westfields got off to a flying start when Alex Hainault rifled home a shot from the edge of the box after he’d been set up neatly by Richard Greaves.
Bewdley came back into the game and Keiron Blackburn produced a flying save at the foot of the post to deny Bewdley a goal before Westfields brought on substitutes Sam Gwynne, Carlos Moreira and Lewis Platt to inject further pace.
It was Moreira who fired home the 3rd goal when, after his first shot was blocked following a right-wing corner, the ball rebounded to the youngster who rifled it home into the roof of the net to give Westfields a commanding 3-0 lead.
Bewdley did not give up and kept up the pace right to the final minute when they scored a deserved consolation goal when Lewis Pountney scored with a cracking shot from close range.
Westfields will now visit fellow Midland Football League team AFC Wulfrunians, who recently beat Hereford FC in a pre-season friendly, on Saturday 19th August in the Preliminary Round of the FA Cup.
This Saturday Westfields are at home in their opening MFL league campaign when they welcome league newcomers South Normanton at allpay.park, kick-off 3pm.
The following Tuesday, 15th August, Westfields travel to another newcomer in the League, Haughmond, at Shrewsbury, kick-off 7.45pm, away.
