After a bright start to the season Wrington Redhill were off the pace Westfield and had overworked goalkeeper Matt Hill to thank for a string of fine saves. After 7 minutes he was called into action to save a dipping drive from Ryan Allen and 5 minutes later he blocked a fierce effort from Beau Baber from inside the box. Westfield continued to look dangerous and the visitors were grateful to skipper Leigh White who cleared off the line with Hill beaten. At the other end the ball rolled to Andy Lilley following a corner but his shot was charged down and Jake Horton shot just wide when through on goal. Just before the interval Wrington Redhill were under pressure again but Westfield’s Bradley Beauchamp blazed over with the goal gaping.
The 2nd half started in much the same way with Westfield pressing and Hill busy as before saving we’ll fromAllen. The breakthrough came after 50 minutes when the home side were awarded a dubious free kick just outside of the box and Jacob Mitchell fired his kick into the top corner giving Hill no chance. Wrington Redhill then almost stirred into life with Bradley, Rowcliffe and Holland working tirelessly to rescue something from the game but it was not to be. A Westfield corner fell to the feet of Oliver Jones who smashed a shot through a crowd of players to make it 2 – 0. The visitors then sprang into life and on 75 minutes we’re back in the game when Rowcliffe’s looping header found the net. Frantic end to end play for the remaking 15 minutes saw Hill called into action again saving from Allen and the visitors almost snatched a point at the end when a shot from substitute Charlie Burgess was well saved by Wright the Westfield keeper
