Perfect 10 for Westies

Westfield extended their unbeaten run to 10 league matches with a 2-0 win at home to Storrington on Saturday.

The result moved Westfield up to fourth in Division Two of the Sussex County Football League and they only trail third-placed Bexhill United on goal difference with a game in hand.

Both goals came in the opening 16 minutes. Martin Brain flicked home the opener following an Ashley Platts corner for his first of the season and David Pugh knocked in the second for his 20th of the campaign.

A full report and reaction will appear in Friday’s Hastings and Rye & Battle Observers.

All other matches involving local senior sides on Saturday were postponed due to waterlogged pitches, including Hastings United’s trip to Wealdstone in the Premier Division of the Ryman League.
