Westella taste defeat in local derby

Westella & Willerby made the short trip over to Brigg Town on Saturday for the local derby fixture and came away not only feeling sorry for themselves but also on the back of a 2-0 defeat. A bright opening period for Westella saw them crest some early opportunities, most noteable coming from Chris Short down the right hand side driving inwards putting Alex Wood through on goal drawing a comfortable save from Dan Waring in the Brigg goal.

With the score locked 0-0 and Westella riding their luck and some wayward shooting for Emley it was soon to take a turn for the worse for manager Leon Sewell in the second half.
