Josh scores his 150th goal for the Brakes

Leamington went 1-0 ahead against Westfields at the New Windmill Ground tonight after thirty seconds. Having kicked off, Jon Adams forged through and a mix up between the keeper and last defender of the Hereford side allowed him to score. The small knot of visiting supporters let out despairing cries of 'Wakey, wakey!' Josh Blake then followed up minutes later to make it 2-0, the removal man scoring his 150th goal for the club.

The heads of the vistors were down, but a defensive error let them burst through. Jason Pearcey was at one time keeper for Brentford and Grimsby, but he is now the Brakes No.2 and was caught stranded as Westfields narrowed the gap 2-1. This was still the score at half time and Leamington put in an insipid performance after the break, unsure whether they should be trying to hold on to their lead or score a third. Field were a phsyical side and Brakes were given little protection by the referee or the Burger Side lino and his dog. The inevitable happened and Westfields equalised.

It looked like a repeat of their last league match at Alvechurch where they turned a 3-0 lead into a draw. However, cometh the hour, cometh the man, and as the minutes ticked away, Stuart Herlihy made it 3-2 to secure the points for Brakes.
