Highgate United continue unbeaten start with victory over Westfields

Solihull Editorial 16th Aug, 2018   0

HIGHGATE United continued their unbeaten start to the new Midland League Premier Division campaign with a 2-0 victory over Westfields.

The result was also Gate’s third successive clean sheet in the league and fourth in all competitions.

Westfields arrived at the Coppice Ground with a 100 per cent winning start after two games and they proved to be a tough nut to crack.

It was Lei Brown who opened the scoring for Gate after 55 minutes with a powerful header off Jame Wilcock’s cross from the right-hand side.

Gate then doubled their advantage ten minutes later when Kurtis Revan bagged his first goal for the club with a quality finish to beat Westfields keeper Ian Havard.

Goalkeeper Brad Catlow ensured Gate walked away with a clean sheet when he pulled off a fine save to deny Mark Magee from the spot in the final minute.
