WESTON’S first league game of the season saw them draw against a strong Firebrands team.

Weston took the lead after 10 minutes with a fantastic strike from the in-form Cam Slater. A quick second goal from a short corner saw Kyle Sully fire Weston into a 2-0 lead midway through the first half, but Firebrands fought back to make the score 2-2 by half-time.

The second half started strongly with a great compilation of passes between Slater, Dave Beer and Chris Etchells, ending with Roy Beer scoring his first league goal for the club after two years out. A second goal for Beer fired Weston into a 4-2 lead.

Firebrands pulled two quick goals back to tie at 4-4 midway through the second half. Weston’s pre-season fitness was starting to show and they took control of the game once more as Beer secured his hat-trick.
