Back to our old stomping grounds of ThorpeHouseSchool and familiar opponents the St James Rhino’s. A bright sunny day greeted the players and those supporters not distracted by events at the Ryder Cup!

The match saw Harry and James L making their club debuts. Westwood immediately got off to a good start which saw Harry and James T causing mayhem in the St James’ defence. Samuel in goal was rarely troubled in the first half which saw a number of good moves put together by Matthew and Daniel in midfield and good defence from James L and Mahdi. Eventually Westwood’s pressure paid off and debutant Harry scored two cracking goals to put Westwood in the ascendancy. A shot from Matthew, touched on by James T resulted in the team going a further goal up before half time.

Half time saw the squad given a strong pep talk from George, while three goals to the good, Westwood appeared to be playing more as Individuals rather than as a team. This clearly did the trick and some good passing moves were put together with all the players combining well. This resulted in a well worked goal from Daniel and more opportunities created but not converted. A spirited St James’ side did not let their heads drop and were rewarded with a break away goal that caught Westwood’s defence too high up the pitch and a little flat footed and Harry well beaten in goal.

A good result for the boys, especially in the second half, and three points on the board. The team was noticeably sharper to the ball and tackle compared to the previous week, played some attractive football in the second half and are beginning to gel nicely as a unit. It was also evident today that the more established players were actively encouraging the newer members of the squad – a nice touch and testament to the Coaches key objective to enjoy and play good football. On wards and upwards.
