HEROICS from the Thornbury Town goalkeeper earned his side a point holding Westfields to a 1-1 draw.

Fields who were looking to build on a midweek win over Longlevens AFC went behind after just four minutes when the home striker raced through to beat Ian Havard with a low shot.

Westfields responded and had a barrage of shots on the Thornbury goal before the interval without equalising.

Strikers Richard Greaves and Cawley Cox were both thwarted by the young Thornbury keeper Mackenzie Welsh who performed heroics in the home goal before Dan Stoneman missed a golden opportunity when he fired over the bar with the goal at his mercy.

The visitors were lucky not to be two goals down before the break when the home striker raced through but with only Ian Havard to beat in the Westfields goal, but pulled his shot wide of the far post.

After the break Westfields continued to dominate but chances went begging.

However, on the hour the visitors equalised from the penalty spot after Harrison Summers was dragged down and Greaves slotted home the penalty.

Westfields then threw everything at the home goal but Welsh in the Thornbury goal performed heroics, saving brilliantly from a Sam Rawlings piledriver.

Greaves then saw his header rattle the crossbar before Stoneman had a golden opportunity but pulled his shot wide of the far post.

On Saturday, Westfields travel to Coventry United in the FA Vase second round in the hope of gaining revenge from their 1-0 defeat in the FA Cup this season.

Then next Tuesday night (November 23) Westfields make the short journey across the road to Edgar Street to play Hereford FC in the HFA County Senior Challenge Cup, kick-off 7.45pm at Edgar Street.
