Friday 19th December..........all three leagues have now issued their fixtures for the month of January and these can be viewed via the 'Fixtures' tab.
Thursday 18th December..........with the Dorset League having a christmas break, we only have one fixture this weekend. That's in the Dorset Premier League and sees our first team take on SWANAGE TOWN & HERSTON at Alvington Lane. You can see from the league table opposite Swanage lie three places below us in the league table but they have played three less games so that could be a false position. They had a decent away win at Cranborne last saturday so they should come to Yeovil in confident mood and we will have to be switched on if we want to win this one. Westlands have been disappointing recently but looked more like the Sports of old when winning at Blandford last week so a good contest is on the cards. Sports owe their supporters a decent performance and if we can put the effort in like last week I have every confidence we can win this one. Don't forget it's a 2.00 pm kick-off.
YOUTH TEAM WIN
Sunday 14th December..........our Under 18 team made it a winning weekend for Westlands when they defeated Bournemouth Poppies 5-2 at Alvington this afternoon in the Dorset County Youth League. Despite going a goal down Westlands took control and a hat-trick for JAMES BUDDEN plus two from ADAM PULLEN made the game safe.

GOOD DAY FOR WESTLANDS
Saturday 13th December..........its a good day when both sides win and with the first team winning 5-4 at Blandford and the reserves winning 5-1 at home to Bere Regis it was smiles all round at the club this evening. At Blandford we were 5-2 up but lost a couple of late goals to make it a tight finish. Sports were always the better side and a hat-trick for LEO HAYWARD plus one each for JOSH PAYNE and LOUIS IRWIN clinched the points. Full match report
At Alvington the reserves won 5-1 against Bere Regis to keep the pressure on the league leaders. Scorers for Westlands were JAMIE BELL (2), MIKE ROUSELL, STEVE ROUSELL and JOE JARVIS.
Wednesday 10th December...........three new pictures, donated by Pete Smith, have been added to the photo archive today. The three are a team picture from 1975, one from 1979, and a unique picture of the Westlands/Herblay twinning match which took place at Westbourne Close in 1987. As usual, we can't recall some of the names so please let us know if you can fill in any of the blanks. The photos can be accessed via the 'Photos' tab. We know these old photos are sometimes treasured memories but if anyone has some from their Westlands playing days we would be delighted to be given the opportunity to scan them for the archive. Or alternatively, if you have a scanner you could just scan them and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
