A battling performance from Weston last night (Monday) was not enough to halt the Seagulls’ losing run as they went down 1-0 to in-form Wealdstone in the National League South.


A second-half Elliot Benyon goal was enough to secure the home side the points but Weston can take encouragement from the performance as they frustrated the Stones for large periods of the games.

Wealdstone now sit fifth in the league, while Weston have slipped to 14th.

In the first half there was very little between the two sides, with few clear cut chances created.

But it was the Stones who had the best chance of the half, with Benyon coming close before the break. But Sekani Simpson cleared the effort off the line to keep the score level at the break.

The second half saw Weston play with more intensity and Eliot Richards played an inch-perfect ball to Tom Meechan early on.

His shot was destined for the back of the net but Jonathan North produced a fantastic save to deny the on-loan Newport striker.
