WEEKEND PREVIEW

Friday 29th April.............two games this weekend with only the first team and the Under 16s in action. The first team have some unfinished business with WEYMOUTH RES to attend to at Alvington. About 6 weeks ago we attempted to play this fixture in the middle of a hurricane but only reached half time before the referee called a halt and abandoned the match. Sports had played the first half into the teeth of the storm with gale force winds, torrential rain and hail in their faces. Unsurprisingly, we went in 2-0 down and thought we had done pretty well under the circumstances but you couldn't really argue with the official's decision as puddles were beginning to form on the pitch and players were beginning to slide uncontrollably into tackles. So we shape up again tomorrow and with Weymouth flying high in the league we have a tough task on our plate. Similar to last saturday when Balti Sports came to Alvington in second place but we put a disappointing midweek display at Mere behind us and won the match 2-0. Again this week we suffered a disappointing defeat at Bridport on Thursday night so we need to put that behind us if we are to get anything from this game. I expect there will be changes as one or two injuries have been picked up and I know that Sam Gibbs and Jordan Fletcher are both away this weekend. Perhaps this is the opportunity to introduce some young hopefuls from the reserves or youth team ?

On sunday the Under 16s have the League Cup semi-final to contest against WIMBORNE & HOLT and this match will be played at Alvington with a 2 pm kick-off as our normal home pitch on the Terrace in Sherborne is unavailable. Westlands start as favourites for this one as we inflicted a heavy defeat on our opponents in the league a few weeks ago. Mind you, they turned up with only 10 men that day so it could be a tighter game this time round. Their results show they are a good side as we are locked together at the top of the league so it could be a very competitive match. Teamwise, being a bank holiday weekend we will probably have one or two missing but hopefully no more than that as we don't have a big squad. I will be backing Westlands to win this one and go through to the final .

 

THE LATE LATE SHOW

Friday 25th April..............the first team went down 3-2 to Bridport Res last night in the DPL at St Mary's Field. Westlands lost a goal in first half injury time (47th minute) to let Bridport back into the game at 2-1, and then fiinally conceded the winner in the 93rd minute to complete a miserable night. JOSH PAYNE and LOUIS IRWIN had given Sports an early lead but in the end we conceded soft goals to lose the game, Full match report to follow.

 

NEW TEAM PHOTOS

Monday 25th April ..............a couple of youth team photographs from around the turn of the century have been given to us recently and can be viewed by accessing the 'Photos' tab above and scrolling down to the Youth section. These pictures were kindly passed on by Bob Peaty and we are always delighted to receive old team photos which we will scan and return to the owner. Or alternatively send the soft copy directly to me at alan@lamont99.plus.com

 

SPORTS TOO HOT FOR BALTI

Saturday 23rd April..............Westlands came out on top with a 2-0 win over Balti Sports in a hard fought match at Alvington this afternoon. Second half goals from ANT HERRIN and LOUIS IRWIN won the points for Westlands. Full match report

At Weymouth the reserves played Dorchester Sports and were thumped 5-0. Too many players not available again this week , you can't keep chopping and changing every week and hope to win games. The lads that did play were up against it but battled hard and held out for 20 minutes before conceding. After that it was a bit of a struggle .
