WESTFIELDS retained the Dennis Hartland Memorial Trophy with a 3-1 victory over city rivals Hereford Pegasus in their annual friendly match.

Dan Stoneman and Josh Hunt's first half goals put Westfields on their way.

However, Sam Pearson pulled a goal back only for a Westfields trialist to seal the win.

"It was a good workout, the game has come really early in the pre-season programme but we wanted to fulfil the Dennis Hartland Memorial," said Westfields manager Phil Glover.

"It's always nice to win it being close to our hearts. It was a good workout for 17 or 18 players although we had a few away working."

Inside the opening two minutes Jordan Williamson cut inside for Peggy before seeing his low effort fly just wide before having a shot blocked moments later.

A quick break by Dan Stoneman out wide on seven minutes released Harrison Summers who saw his shot saved.

Stoneman did fire Fields ahead on 13 minutes cutting in from the right before nestling his shot into the opposite corner of the net.

New signing Kyle Cassell was next to test the hosts driving forward and then steering his effort just wide.

Westfields doubled their lead on 23 minutes with Josh Hunt rifling his effort in off the side-netting.

In reply after the break Sam Pearson was played through on goal for Pegasus and had the goalkeeper beaten only for a last-ditch clearance off the goal-line to deny him.

Pegasus had pulled a goal back on 56 minutes with a cross to the far post finding Marshall Hopkins who slotted the ball home.

Minutes later Westfields thought they had regained their two-goal advantage with Cassell breaking clear before crossing to Summers at the far post who was flagged off-side.

With 15 minutes remaining Fields had the chance to seal the win with their forward going onto the last man before seeing his effort deflected wide.

The win was secured with a third Westfields goal with seven minutes on the clock after Pegasus goalkeeper Matt Gwynne was forced into a double save before a trialist headed the ball home.

Westfields could have had a fourth goal moments later when a cross found a trialist forward who miss-kicked his effort wide.

"It was good in patches but overall we were pretty disappointed," said Hereford Pegasus joint manager Mark Hibbard.

"We started two weeks ago training but the boys didn't look sharp enough which was a major problem for us.

"We can only do so much for them in the training sessions we put on but it's down to them what they do off the pitch."
