Westella & Willerby secured all three points with a brace from Alex Wood as they beat Beverley Town Football Club 2-0 at Norwood.
Wood struck in each half from a corner to ensure it was the visitors that earned maximum points in this encounter.
The victory sees the Westella move top of the Humber Premier League while town slip to fifth in the table.
Town manager Rich Jagger was disappointed with the result while he did feel Westella were good value for the win.
Speaking after the match Jagger said;
“It was a disappointing performance from us, we were nowhere near our best. We struggled to keep the ball and failed to create many chances at all.”
“The two goals we conceded were also very disappointing considering they both came from corners. I have no qualms about the result, Westella deserved the win.”
While the result or performance was up to scratch there was one positive from the Jagger. New signing Adam Bowse made what he felt made an impact from the bench.
Commenting on the performance of his new addition Jagger said;
“I thought Bowse coming off the bench gave us something different. He did well and he will be pushing to make his full debut next week.”
Chalk Lane Will Be Aiming To Beat Town And Knock Westella Off The Top
Jagger will be looking for a reaction next weekend. Beverley Town will again be at home in the Humber Premier League as they host Chalk Lane.
Chalk Lane will also be looking for a result after they suffer their fifth defeat of the season losing 2-0 at home to Hessle Rangers.
Lane will arrive at Norwood knowing they certainly a need a win if they are to keep the pressure on the new league leaders. Two points adrift and having played one more game, Chalk Lane will view their match with Beverley as a must-win.
