Irlam 1-3 West

Tuesday 22nd September 2020, pre-season friendly

Irlam 1 (90)
West 3 (Kidd 31, Ajayi 42, Elliott 65)

West resumed their preparations ahead of the NWCFL season with an impressive win at Irlam.

Chris Rowley shuffled his pack following Saturday's FA Vase win against Bury AFC, and his side took a deserved two-goal lead into the break. Theo Kidd converted at the back post after good work by Ben Elliott, before Rodney Ajayi rifled home from 20 yards.

Elliott followed up his weekend goalscoring exploits just after the hour mark when he was sent clear on goal and finished neatly past the onrushing Irlam keeper.

The NWCFL Premier Division outfit denied West a clean sheet when a superb free kick gave Joel Torrance little chance in the closing moments, but this was an evening full of reasons for encouragement ahead of the First Division South opener against Stockport Town a week on Saturday.

West: Jones, McKenzie, Dibble, McLean, Westall, Ajayi, Hall, Elliott, Dale, Kidd, Swift. Subs: Torrance, Trialist, Delaney, Sheridan, Hancock.
