PRE-SEASON LOCAL DERBY ENDS IN DRAW

Westfields’ final pre-season friendly against local rivals Malvern Town took place last night and ended in an entertaining 2-2 draw. 

Westfields led comfortably at the break 2-0 but in the second half Malvern Town came back strongly to equalise in an end-to-end hard fought and most competitive pre-season friendly.

Malvern team manager Dean Whittal-Williams, a former Westfields favourite, included a number of former Westfields players including Ben Miller, James Febery and Jay Saunston in their line-up and this added extra spice to the game which was well contested in a first-half in which Westfields took a lead mid-way through the half after a fine flowing movement which ended with Ben Hayes laying on a square ball to Craig Jones who rifled home a low shot into the bottom right-hand corner of the net.

Westfields then increased their lead shortly before half time when Richard Greaves pounced on an opportunity to put Westfields 2 up at the break.

After the interval Westfields made several changes to their line-up and saw Malvern take advantage and hit back with a goal from Harry Clark and then late in the game they drew level when former Westfields striker Ben Miller equalised to send the sides in at 2-2. 

Westfields then had a great opportunity right at the end when Dan Stoneman made a dazzling run down the right, cut in and crossed to the far post where Kane Kahaki had slid in only to see his fine effort go over the bar.

This competitive game ended 2-2 to set up both teams nicely for their UHL Sport Hellenic League programme which kicks off this Saturday.
