The Under 16s narrowly lost 2-1 to Longhill in a scrappy game away in the rain. Some poor refereeing decisions and an over the top physical Longhill side prevented Westella from getting the draw that they perhaps deserved. It was a game that the boys felt they could have taken a point from, but will move on to the next game and make sure they bounce back from the disappointment! The Westella goal came from Josh Richards’ back side. Unlucky lads!

Westella Willerby u9s once again proved they are a force to be reckoned with in the HDYFL as they demonstrated exquisite pass and move football at home to North Ferriby United Whites on Sunday October 9th. Game 1 started in true Westella style as they played with passion and purpose in closing the opposition down and building masterfully from the back. After hitting the woodwork early on the deadlock was broken as a training ground move was well executed by Westella’s striker after superb build up play. Ferriby responded well and scored within minutes after their striker never gave up and deserved his goal for persistence. The pendulum swung again 3 minutes later as a great cross was laid off perfectly and Westella’s striker finished a chance with his magical feet once more. Westella then hit the woodwork…
Westella & Willerby u9s manager & coach are running out of superlatives to describe the boys form as they crafted another dazzling display at Driffield Tigers on Sunday 2nd October. After a quality performance against AFC Kingston the previous week Westella were in a dominant mood once more as they played “total” football way above their years. From the outset Westella took a firm grip of game 1 as a delightful corner was met by a Westella forward who finished well on 4 minutes. A minute later and a great pass was well read and Westella scored again. Superb slick distribution on 12 minutes from Westella’s goalkeeper fed his defender who played a slide rule pass down the right and a precision pass was met at the far post by a Westella forward who finished the move off emphatically. Driffield rallied for a time but the half belonged…

MATCH REPORT That’s 3 out of 3 for The ‘Ella after a hard fought 2-0 victory over Hessle Rangers in the East Riding Senior Cup. After a goalless first half Westella took the lead around the hour mark through a Lewis Andrew penalty.. after his touch got away from him in the box he was clattered into by the full back sending him over with the referee not hesitating in giving the correct decision of the penalty. Lewis then stepped up and rifled his penalty in off the underside of the bar… not long after with the Hessle side tiring the second goal came from a Kashilembo throughball that found the feet of the on rushing Danny Holiday and after setting himself angled his drive into the bottom corner. With 15 minutes to go the back four came under some pressure from the Hessle onslaught looking to get back into…
