Gethyn is the king of the Hill

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Sheri­dan Robins

GETHYN HILL’S first half in­jury-time fin­ish was enough for We­ston to beat win­less White­hawk.

The Seag­ulls en­joyed much of the pos­ses­sion in the early stages against the bot­tom side but strug­gled to test goal­keeper Seny Dieng, with Dayle Grubb and Tris­tan Plum­mer both go­ing close in the first 20 min­utes.

Dan­ger­ous striker Hill gave We­ston a well-de­served lead in first half stop­page time when he latched onto a loose ball and poked it home.

De­spite some con­fu­sion from the lines­man over whether the ball had crossed the line, the goal was even­tu­ally given.

The Hawks came out af­ter the break with in­ten­sity but it wasn’t long un­til the Gulls’ dom­i­nance re­sumed.

There was a mo­ment where White­hawk looked like they might go close, but for­mer Mill­wall and Bris­tol City for­ward Marvin El­liott could only fire over the bar.

Hill was at the heart of ev­ery­thing good We­ston were do­ing and on 65 min­utes he was tripped in the box to hand them a penalty.

But there was more con­tro­versy when Grubb stepped up to take the spot kick, slip­ping as he found the back of the net.

The ref­eree ruled the We­ston captain had touched the ball twice and awarded a goal kick. STAR MAN: Gethyn Hill (We­ston) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
