Ash on fire to earn first Seag­ulls vic­tory


The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Ciaran Mor­ri­son

WE­STON claimed their first win of the sea­son with a nar­row win over rel­e­ga­tion ri­vals Hunger­ford Town.

Jar­rad Welch had an early shot for We­ston, who made the live­lier start and were soon push­ing Hunger­ford back.

How­ever Hunger­ford slowly gained a foothold and Danilo Orsi-Dadomo forced a low save from Luke Purnell be­fore Dar­ren Fox­ley failed to pounce on the re­bound.

Bradley Ash thought he was through on goal for We­ston but de­fender Mar­vel Ex­piteta came across to deny him a shot on goal. Af­ter the in­ter­val Welch had a header saved on the stretch by Ja­cob Weaver and Hunger­ford sub­sti­tute Conor Lynch wrig­gled free but could only shoot at Purnell.

The Cru­saders then con­ceded a penalty when Weaver fouled Ash in the penalty area and the striker con­verted to give the Seag­ulls the lead.

The hosts failed to pro­duce an­other clear-cut chance and the We­ston de­fence stood firm. Ash then had a chance for his sec­ond from the spot as Weaver again trans­gressed but the goal­keeper guessed right and saved.
