Report: West 1-0 Altrincham

Saturday 24th July 2021, friendly

West 1 Altrincham 0
Kennedy Digie own goal (9)

West completed their pre-season preparations with a slender win over Altrincham.

The only goal of the game was gift-wrapped inside ten minutes, with Robins defender Kennedy Digie’s backpass catching out keeper Matt Gould and crossing the line.

Altrincham dominated possession after the break but Andrew Jones was called into only casual employment, while Callum Jones forced the Robins’ substitute trialist keeper into a smart stop following good work from Billy Matthews.

Chris Rowley’s side return to competitive action next weekend, as the NWCFL First Division South campaign commences with a trip to Alsager Town.

West: A. Jones, Cook, Hancock (Westall), C. Jones (Tinker), Dibble, Heathcote, Grewal (Matthews), Gavin (Ryan), Elliott (Swift), Davis, Gabidon (Lewis).
