Home Match: 10th October 2009.

Referee: Luke Jeffreys.

WPFC Squad: Daniel Collier, Jonny Grint, Toby Hawkes, Sam Jeffreys, Matthew Jones (GK 2nd Half), Shaylin Patel, Daniel Restall (GK 1st Half).

Match Result: Westwood Park 5 – St James Lions 0

Scorers: Daniel Collier 2, Matthew Jones 2, Sam Jeffreys 1

Our second match of the season saw us up against the St James Lions. Another fine all round performance from the team. Strong running from Daniel C, Toby and Sam, great passing and distribution from Daniel R, Jonny and Matthew and a fine defensive performance from Shaylin who in his first appearance of the season was a revelation.

The score does not tell the full story. Both teams were evenly matched in the first part of the first half. The Lions may well have been ahead except for some fine saves in goal from Daniel R, but once Westwood had settled into their passing game the goals came.

The second half was a much more even affair with Westwood managing a solitary goal. Again this is deceptive, the Lions goalkeeper making a number of fine saves, in particular a phenomenal point blank effort against Daniel R which was tipped over the bar. Matthew was called into action in the Westwood goal and but for Shaylin’s defending in particular, the Lions may feel a little aggrieved not to have got on the score sheet.

The Lions, In spite of being a player down for the entire match, played extremely well, and like our previous opponents, their heads never dropped, and they achieved some parity by winning the post match friendly comprehensively.

Reviewer’s man of the match: Shaylin Patel for an extremely impressive defensive display, strong tackling and great distribution out of defence.
