WESTFIELDS slumped to their second consecutive league defeat when they were beaten heavily 5-0 away at Corsham on Saturday.

Boss Phil Glover’s side failed to contend with a hard-working home side who had long-throw specialist Nathan Davis who was very instrumental in the goals.

Westfields also suffered a sending-off to central defender Ben Vine when the score was at 2-0 in Corsham’s favour and after being reduced to 10 men the floodgates opened.

Westfields got off to a poor start when Corsham scored in the first minute through Niekell Plummer who scored with an acrobatic overhead kick to put the home side ahead with only 60 seconds on the clock. 

The visitors hit back immediately and Dan Stoneman was not far away with a crisp shot. However, it was the home side who increased the lead in the 18th minute when Westfields failed to deal with a long throw from Davis and the ball was headed home at the far post by Callum Demkiv to give the home side a dream 2-0 start.

Fields failed to impress against the big Corsham defence and after the interval suffered further disappointment when Vine was sent off, having fouled when he was the last man in the defence as Corsham burst through.

Down to 10 men it was always going to be a hard task and the home side went 3-0 up when Plummer scored his second goal of the game to put Corsham into a commanding lead.

The visitors then sent on their substitutes and within only a few minutes substitute Matt Groves increased the lead to 4-0.

Westfields remained fighting and came back with an opportunity and Joe Davies saw his header comfortably saved.

It was Corsham who were really calling the tune and they took their score to five in the dying minutes when substitute Groves scored his second goal of the game when he broke away to smash the ball past Matt Apperley in the Westfields goal.

This was one of Westfields’ heaviest defeats in the Hellenic League and they will be looking to bounce back on Saturday when they travel to Chipping Sodbury, kick-off 3pm.
