Spur On Westfields - 29 November

Westfields are urging fans to spur on their side as they host in the Lutterworth Town in the Buildbase FA Vase this Saturday. Head of sport content Ben Goddard writes in the Hereford Times.

After already beating Leicester Nirvana and Newton Abbot Spurs in the Vase they sit five wins away from a Wembley final. However, their first hurdle is a Lutterworth side who beat them in the FA Cup 3-2 at Allpay Park back in August.phil glover westfields hallenicleague

“We know all about them and they beat us at home so we know we’ll have to be on our toes to get a result," said Westfields manager Phil Glover (pictured). "It’s a tough fixture and I’m glad we’re at home for it."

Speaking about the sides last meeting, Glover added: “I think on the side-line we got a bit involved with all the shenanigans rather than the football. Having said that we had a lot of chances and it was during a spell where we were creating chances and not scoring. We drew two games in the league after that and those were the points we dropped. So we were creating chances but it wasn’t quite going for us. But ever since then we haven’t looked back. We’ve been finishing those chances big style."

Glovers side have scored 53 goals in 14 league matches this season. He is urging local football fans to come and watch his side this weekend. He added: “We are trying to get the crowds up which is a disappointment for us and the players because when we have had a bigger crowd the lads have noticed it. When we’ve gone away and taken some down to Newton Abbott it really does help the lads. Going further on in the season when we have more important games then hopefully we can get those figures up. It’s not only about getting number through the gate but also spurring the lads on and having that following that puts other teams off as they’re not used to a bigger crowd."

“It would be good to see local people down there really as we have got a base of local players. Out of a squad of 23 some 14 or 15 are local players and local management. We get stopped and people say it’s exciting football. That’s what we want we give up our time as management and the players give up a lot of time and we don’t want to go there and play boring football. We want to play expansive football and attractive football. Once fans start to come they will see we do things properly and it’s not just a pub team. We play some good football, have some quality players and they will return."
