WESTFIELDS have started building for next season with the re-signing of young forward Harrison Summers.

Summers spent last season with Hereford FC after spending the previous campaign with Phil Glover’s side and has now returned to allpay.park.

“It’s really positive news for both our club and Harrison that we have got this done nice and early,” said Glover about the signing.

“Harry was outstanding for us before moving to Hereford. Last year would of been frustrating for him as I know how much he loves playing football.

“The challenge for Harry now is to settle back into the group which I have no doubt he will do. He will knuckle down and battle to get his shirt back.

“He will show us and the rest of the county just how good a player he really is. We have shown over the last couple of seasons that the pathway at our club is unrivalled locally, if you are good enough you are old enough!”

Westfields held their presentation evening on Saturday at allpay.park when chief executive Andy Morris congratulated the management team and the players on regaining the HFA County Senior Challenge Cup.

Assistant Manager Paul Willetts said their Hellenic League form had been disappointing at times and resulting in a seventh position finish.

Willetts also stated that the development team playing in a very good and competitive Herefordshire Premier Division had been a great addition to the club and several of the young players had enjoyed minutes in the first team.

Morris also commented that next season the FA had introduced a play-off for teams finishing second to fifth in the Hellenic Premier Division to give another promotion place to the Southern League along with the champions.

"This will keep the season alive for teams and is a great incentive for us next season," added Morris.

The Westfields awards went to: Harry Pitman (Westfields Young Player of the Year); Dan Stoneman (leading goalscorer); Sean Powell (Players' Player of the Year); Steve Davies (Westfields’ Managers Player of the Year); Kirsty Hutton (Club Person of the Year). Hutton is the club’s junior section secretary to 12 Teams. 

Westfields Development Team had done well finishing 12th in the Herefordshire Premier Division in their first season.

Manager Luke Johnson said: “We have achieved what we set out to do by assembling a good young side capable of supporting the first team with quality players when required and the future looks good providing this group of players stay with Westfields which in my opinion is the best club in Herefordshire".

A special award was made to Scott Jackson who completed 20 years at Westfields and was described by committee member Sean Edwards as a ‘legend at Westfields and one of the best signings he had ever made during his time as manager’.

The Development Team awards were made to: Cameron Marsh (Managers Player of the Year and Players' Player of the Year); Sam Griffiths (leading goalscorer).
