HARD WORK FOR WESTLANDS

Wednesday 27th July..............Sports put up a battling display at Gillingham last night despite eventually losing the match 3-1. Westlands took the lead in the 15th minute when LOUIS IRWIN converted a low driven Leo Hayward cross. However the home team were soon dominating possession and equalised after 30 minutes through ex-westlands player Haydn Hodges. The second half continued much the same with Gillingham dominating possession and Sports looking dangerous on the break. Another ex-Westlands favourite Ben Cochrane put the home side ahead on the hour after some dodgy defending by Westlands and in the dying minutes with Sports down to 10 men having used all their subs they made it 3-1. Westlands were without a recognised goalkeeper on the night and credit to Josh Payne and Stu Smith who both had turns in goal and put on a good show. New manager Harry Gibbs was again delighted by the effort and hard work put in by his team. Although he was disappointed with 2 of the goals we conceded in general we had defended well as a team and kept a good shape which was pleasing. Only our second game and some tired legs at the end but we now look forward to a trip to play Middlezoy on saturday.

 

SPORTS DRAW FIRST FRIENDLY

Wednesday 20th July.............Westlands first team travelled to Moor Lane to play Wincanton Town last night and came away with a creditable 2-2 draw. On a hot night both teams worked hard and gave a decent crowd a good entertaining game. The home side had the majority of possession as you would expect but Sports were always dangerous on the break and took the lead after 40 minutes when CALLUM THOMPSON outpaced the Wincanton defence and slipped the ball past the advancing keeper. Half-time, 1-0 Westlands.

It took the home side only 2 minutes of the second half to equalise after a bit of a mix-up in the Sports defence and the home team went ahead in the 75th minute when a long throw put their winger away and he cut in to score. Westlands pressed for an equaliser and were rewarded with 5 minutes left when a ball over the top caused a home defender to head past his own keeper for an OG ! So it finished 2-2 and credit to both teams for such a competitive match on a hot night. From a Westlands viewpoint it was a much needed run-out and manager Harry Gibbs was pleased with the gutsy performance of his team . Obviously at this time of year there are players missing but one or two of last nights team took the opportunity to catch the manager's eye and perhaps move up the pecking order as the team begins to take shape for the league compaign.
