WESTFIELDS HIT TIVIDALE IN CUP
Westfields recorded an impressive 5-1 home win in the FA Cup Preliminary Round on Saturday when a whirlwind opening first half saw Westfields snatch a 5-1 interval lead and win the cup tie following an impressive opening 45 minutes.
As per the previous week when Westfields hit 4 in a first-half performance over St Andrews at Leicester, Westfields wasted no time in settling down and took a 2nd minute lead when Aidan Thomas got free on the left flank and his cross to the far post was converted by James Baldwin.
Westfields soon increased the lead when again Thomas got free on the left following a fine pass by James Febery and this time Richard Greaves took his opportunity well to put Westfields 2-0 ahead.
Tividale were struggling to contain the lively Westfields attack and when Westfields were awarded a free kick 20 yards out Dylan Bonella stepped up to plant a free kick into the bottom corner for his first goal for Westfields and give his new team a 3-0 lead.
Westfields then scored another fine goal when Febery again sent Aidan Thomas away on the left and the “Man of the Match” put over a pin-point cross and Jamie Molyneux swept the ball home with a superb strike from 15 yards.
This was an incredible first-half display as Tividale could not handle Westfields’ quick raiding attack and on 26 minutes Westfields went 5-0 ahead when Jamie Baldwin raced clear on the right wing and cut in to beautifully chip the visiting keeper with an excellent finish.
Tividale then got a goal when Jamie Febery brought down Lewis McPike and McPike pulled a goal back when his penalty was saved by Keiron Blackburn in the Westfields goal but he followed up to slam home the rebound in a pulsating first half.
After the break Tividale came back and enjoyed a better involvement in the game but could not get past a well organised defence in which skipper Phil Glover marshalled the back four very well.
Westfields will now meet Southern League Premier Division team St Ives Town at allpay.park on Saturday 3rd September, kick-off 3pm.
