WESTFIELDS HOLD CURZON ASHTON IN FA CUP CLASSIC
Westfields played their historic First Round Emirates FA Cup tie at home to Vanarama North side Curzon Ashton and held them to a 1-1 draw in an exciting end-to-end Cup tie played in front of 1,187 spectators at allpay.park on Saturday.
The game was preceded by Football Focus with Dan Walker and the game generated immense interest from the national television, national press, radio and the Hereford Times.
The game started in dramatic fashion when Westfields went ahead in the 8th minute when Aidan Thomas was fetched down in the penalty area and Craig Jones dispatched the penalty to put Westfields 1-0 ahead.
Westfields then came under pressure and Keiron Blackburn twice made brave saves at the foot of the post to keep out an equaliser and then Craig Jones hit a fierce free kick over the bar after Sirdic Grant has been fetched down on the edge of the penalty area.
Westfields went into the interval leading.
After the break as expected Curzon Ashton put Westfields under extreme pressure but the Westfields defence defended superbly with Blackburn in constant action.
As the game wore on it looked as though a surprise was on the cards until 8 minutes from time Curzon Ashton scrambled a winner when Adam Morgan scored from close range after the Westfields defence had been unable to clear a right wing corner.
Even deep into injury time Westfields kept plugging away and Chris Ham fired a shot high over the bar as both sides lived to fight another day with a replay on Monday 14th November at Curzon Ashton.
Please note that this is not an all ticket tie and spectators can pay on the gate as per normal.
