Weston recorded their fourth straight victory with a 6-2 win over Westbury.



WESTON entertained Westbury looking to record their fourth straight victory. Weston started shakily, struggling to string a number of passes together and a host of unsuccessful dribbles.

Despite this poor start, Weston were still in control of the game and the defensive trio of Dave Beer, Kyle Sully and Dave Holland dictated the pace of the game.

Full-backs Paul Ninnis and Mercedes Benz of Weston man of the match Stuart Westcott were giving their opposite numbers problems and linking up with Matt Kearsey and Jake Turner to capitalise on the poor Westbury defending.

Kearsey found himself around the back of the Westbury defence to pull back for Roy Beer, whose lofted shot struck the crossbar. Chris Etchells was working tirelessly up front and was rewarded with a short corner, which was put away by Sam Neate with a low flick into the corner.

George Davis and Chris Bryant came on to offer fresh legs in the middle of the pitch and the latter’s effort was rewarded with another short corner, which was this time dispatched by Kyle Sully.

Weston keeper Matt Godwin, who had made a number of fantastic saves during the first-half, was unlucky to concede a freak goal which has unfortunately been the story of Weston’s defensive season.

During the second half, Weston shifted through the gears and were at ease during the game. More goals should have been scored had it not been for the casual nature of Weston’s approach. A long ball from Sully found Neate, who beat the defender to pass across the goalkeeper for Roy Beer to touch home.

Etchells continued his good season by scoring a fine individual goal to make it 4-1. Westbury pulled a goal back from a penalty stroke, before Kearsey then scored his second goal in as many weeks.

Weston wrapped up the scoring as Sully deflected a short corner flick from Neate to make it six and a convincing win for Weston.
