The Porthampton Bugle

If it's not in The Bugle – It's not happening!

Porthampton 1 Westchester Wanderers 0


Porthampton made it 17 wins this season with their 1-0 win in a hard fought game against Westchester this week.

The Westchester side were taking no prisoners at Harbourside Road, playing extremely aggressive football that saw the game end with three yellow cards for Irving, Sefton and Hopkins.

Pascoe showed that he could handle the pressure in his third game as Gibson’s stand in, having gotten over the nerves from his first two games for Porthampton. The highlight being a cat-like save across the face of the goal to shut out Sefton’s thunderous shot at the top right corner.

The first half ended in a goalless stalemate and we had to wait until the 81st minute for Purcy to execute a masterful run up the right wing, followed by a low cross to Jackson who finished it with a volley over the top of the outstretched Wanderers keeper.

Talking after the match Purcy spoke about the teams efforts “We put it all out on the pitch today, it was a hard slog and they gave us a tough time but it the end we pulled together and got the three points. Now it’s about looking forward and trying to recreate that for the rest of the season.”

Porthampton will be looking to repeat their success in next match against South Meon at Abbey Field, their previous meeting the game ended in a 1-1 draw.
