WESTFIELDS HOLD SLIMBRIDGE AT ALLPAY.PARK

Westfields welcomed Southern League (South & West) side Slimbridge to allpay.park last night in their last pre-season friendly and the game produced an exciting end-to-end and very competitive pre-season friendly. 

Both sides were evenly matched from start to finish but it was Westfields who took an interval lead through Alex Hainault who blasted home through a ruck of players from 12 yards to put Westfields ahead at the break.  Before that Keiron Blackburn had twice saved well in the home goal to prevent the visitors going ahead in a lively opening 45 minutes.

After the break Slimbridge drew level and then began to take the upper hand and scored a superb goal with neat interplay which went through the home defence and ended with a low shot past the advancing Blackburn to put Slimbridge 2-1 ahead.

Blackburn then saved at point-blank range to save Westfields after Slimbridge had got round the back of the home defence to create another chance.

However, Westfields persevered and introduced substitutes Adjei Kingsford, Craig Jones and Sam Gwynne and these 3 injected further pace into the Westfields side who deservedly drew level when Alex Hainault, who was awarded the Man of the Match for the game by Sodexho the match-day sponsor, rifled home the equaliser from the edge of the box to put the 2 sides level. 

In an end-to-end finale both sides went close to gaining a winner but settled for a well deserved draw. 

Westfields now go forward on Saturday with a home FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round tie when they meet Bewdley Town at allpay.park, kick-off 3pm.
