WORCESTER City recorded a league and cup double against Westfields despite valiant effort from Scott Russell’s side.

A crowd of 487 gathered on Saturday as City maintained their Hellenic League unbeaten run with a 4-1 victory.

Westfields had beaten their rivals 2-1 at Worcester in August and the home side were boosted when Dan Stoneman fired his side ahead from an Archie Muirhead cross with just three minutes on the clock .

Fields had Worcester in trouble and the City keeper made a fine save to keep out a rising shot from Ollie Barnes and then Archie Muirhead hit a shot just over the bar from 12 yards.

The hosts went close again after 30 minutes when overlapping fullback George Clarke burst through the Worcester defence but his shot flew inches wide of the far post.

Worcester then got their life-line when referee James Lewis awarded the visitors a disputed penalty and Kyle Delmonte levelled the scores from the spot just before half-time .

After the break Worcester took control and Elliott Hartley completed a fine solo goal in only the 47th minute and then Lorca Sheehan’s header put the visitors 3-1 ahead.

Worcester’s persistence paid off when late in the game Liam Locket beat the Westfields offside trap to complete the score line with a fourth goal.

The sides met again at Allpay Park on Tuesday night in the Marsh Challenge Cup quarter-final.

City started where they left off on Saturday taking a third minute lead when Kyonn Evans swept home inside the box.

Evans turned provider minutes later as Worcester threatened again, but this time Jordan Lymn fired wide from eight yards out.

Moments later Daniel Stoneman ran in on goal only to be denied by a block from goalkeeper Joe Stockton.

Fields searched for an equaliser in the second half and Raphael Oppong denied by the goalkeeper and then Stoneman fired over.
