JUST six months after taking over as manager of Westfields, Phil Glover has seen his side go unbeaten in 14 league games and go into the third round of the FA Vase.

After captaining Fields on the pitch Glover moved into the management team last season before being given the managers roll in the summer.

After years competing for promotion at non-league step five in the Midlands League his side currently sit top of the Hellenic Premier, after being moved across this season.

"I'm really happy out of 282 teams there are us and another side unbeaten in the league," said Glover.

"I think for the last couple of years I personally recognised what we were in need of and that was a spine straight through the middle, a goalkeeper, a centre half and centre midfielder and a target man.

"I think we've added that to the squad with Harvey (Rivers), Ryan Green, Billy Murphy and Richard Greaves.

"The lads have all played higher, but with it when we recruited in the summer we were making sure they weren't coming for other reasons.

"It was because they wanted to play and knew that we were a decent footballing side and the squad we were going to put together was going to go places hopefully.

"That's the reason why they're with us. It's putting the onus on playing 56 games, which might not sound a lot to the average person but when you're working and got to play mid-week away and doing it again Saturday.

"It's a lot for a non-league player to do and combine a work role. What we wanted to do was to have a squad that when we needed to freshen up the guys going in are just as good as the guys coming out.

"We've said to the whole group everybody is pushing for a place and that's the only way we'll get to the end of the season and be challenging for stuff.

"We have also tweaked a few things off the pitch with Roger Lloyd coming in and a physio, which was a change in the backroom staff.

"It was just a bit of tweaking behind the scenes really."

Fields made three additions this weeks with the addition of Armed Forces goalkeeper Joe Gorman following the departure of Harvey Rivers.

Also Hartpury College pairing Emmanuel Bam and Baidoo King have added power to their forward line.

Gorman made his debut in Westfields' 3-0 win over Virginia Water on Saturday when Aiden Thomas scored a brace and Cameron Peters the other.

Glover added: "Myself, Paul Willetts, my assistant, and Scott Jackson are keeping each other on our toes because when you're going well it's quite easy to rest on your laurels a bit and not look to strengthen or improve.

"I think that mix of us three make sure that we do in training and players.

"With Harvey (Rivers) going we had to replace a goalkeeper so we had two and will have three pushing for a place.

"The same going forwards, me and Scott Jackson have been to watch the lads at Hartpury on four or five occasions now and know those coming in caught the eye really not just in one game.

"They will be good for us as they're always training so their fitness levels will be up."
