WESTFIELDS got their first league win of the season with a thrilling 3-2 home win over visiting Longlevens AFC on Saturday at Allpay Park.

Phil Glover’s side had to come from behind to win the game in the second half but gave a hardworking display, particularly with several key players missing.

Fields got off to a dream start when new striker, Ollie Barnes, shot them ahead in the fifth minute from an acute angle.

However, the visitors hit back and Brad Martin scored twice from close range to give the visitors a 2-1 interval lead.

After the break Westfields equalised within five minutes when dangerman Barnes shot home through a ruck of players from 12 yards.

Fields then struck the winner as Harry Pitman got free on the right and beat his defender before cut inside and shot, the ball was fumbled by the visiting keeper, but looked across the line before Barnes applied the finishing touch into the back of the net. The goal was credited to Pitman by the assistant referee.

With minutes ticking away and the referee playing seven minutes added time, Westfields held firm to register a fine 3-2 home win and set themselves up nicely for Tuesday night’s trip to league leaders, Worcester Raiders.

On Saturday, Westfields play in the FA Cup Preliminary Round when they expect a large crowd at Allpay Park for the visitor of Worcester City in the FA Cup, kick-off 3pm.
