HOME CUP DRAW FOR RESERVES

Saturday 16th October................Sports reserve team have pulled a home draw in the 2nd round of the Somerset Junior Cup. We will play near neighbours WEST & MIDDLE CHINNOCK who play in the Perry Street League Premier Division and have a few ex-westland players in their ranks so promises to be a good cup tie. The match will take place on saturday 13th November at Alvington Lane. 


SPORTS EDGE DERBY

Sunday 10th October............one goal was enough to separate the teams in an exciting match with local rivals Sherborne Town Reserves at Alvington Lane yesterday.  With Mark Cuff, Jonny Manley, Dan Ewens and Jake Smeeton all missing it was all change for Westlands again. There were welcome returns for Tim Trevett, Duncan McCabe and Lewis Howchin and new signing Sam Stroud took over in goal. The visitors had an early scare when a Jamie Green thunderbolt smashed off the crossbar and a couple of runs from Josh Payne had them on the retreat. Gradually however Sherborne settled into the game with plenty of possession but they never really tested Sports new keeper while at the other end Westlands looked dangerous with their quick breaks. Duncan McCabe went close with a free kick then just before the break, in the 44th minute, Sports made the breakthrough. Duncan McCabe fired over a corner and STEVE ORMROD bulletted a header into the net. An opportune moment for Sports to score as Sam Plumley was cooling his heels in the sin bin at the time ! Half time 1-0 Westlands.

Sports upped their game as the second half started and could have increased their lead when Steve Ormrod headed wide from a good position. The tackles were flying in now and a flurry of yellow cards was then followed by a red for Sherborne’s ex-Westland player Haydn Hodges leaving them a man down for the remaining 20 minutes. Sherborne, spurred on by the setback, threw everyone forward and were very nearly rewarded for their efforts when Westlands keeper Sam Stroud pulled off a superb save from point blank range. Westlands responded with some nice possession football to see out time and secure a hard fought victory. Steve Ormrod gets the MoM award for that match-winning goal.

Line-up: Stroud: Plumley, Trevett, Chorley, Howchin: Green, Barratt, McCabe: Payne, Ormrod, Cauldwell.

Subs: Crisp, Martin, Kamal.


CUP EXIT THRILLER 

Monday 4th October..............Westlands exited the Somerset Senior cup on saturday with a disappointing 4-3 defeat by Chilcompton at Alvington Lane. In horrendous conditions both teams served up a thrilling end to end game which resulted in a narrow win for the visitors. Surprisingly Sports made 5 changes to the team who won so convincingly in the DPL Cup last week. Chilcompton are the cup holders so this was always going to be a tough match but Westlands got off to the worst possible start conceding the opening goal in the 4th minute, a shot from outside the box from Chili's Harry Barter. In the 8th minute however Sports struck back, JOSH PAYNE burying a Fin Cauldwell cross. In the 16th minute Barter was again given room on the edge of the Westlands box and he duly smacked in goal number 2 for the visitors. Jonny Manley then went off injured for Westlands and was replaced by Luca Martin with Steve Ormrod dropping back into defence. A minute later though it was 2-2 when FREDDY CHORLEY headed in a Jake Smeeton corner.

2-2 Half time. In the 55th minute Westlands took the lead for the first time when JOSH PAYNE slotted in a nice goal. Unfortunately Sports could only hold onto their lead for 5 minutes as Chili's Monty Burgess cut in from the left and drilled an unstoppable shot into the far opposite corner. 3-3 with half an hour left meant the game could go either way. In the 80th minute, with Westlands tiring, it was Chilcompton who bagged the winner. That man Barter again struck from close range this time to complete his hat-trick and secure his team's place in the next round.MoM is Josh Payne, his 2 goals being the bright spark in a disappointing day for Westlands.

Line-up: Cuff: Plumley, Manley, Chorley, Ewens: Green, Barratt, Smeeton: Payne, Ormrod, Cauldwell.

Subs: Crisp, Martin, Howchin.
