County Champions

There were two leagues of four teams and Westfield were in a league with teams from Lincoln, Grantham and Sleaford.


In their first game Westfield got off to a really positive start playing free flowing football from the kick off and running out comfortable 2 - 0 winners against local side William Alvey. Westfield drew their next two games against Caistor and Gonerby Hill Foot but that was enough for them to win their league and go through to the semi-finals.
In the semi-final Westfield played Parish Church Primary School from Gainsborough. From the kick off Westfield were on the front foot scoring from a throw in which took a deflection before ending up in the back of the net. The Westfield team played some exceptional football on the way to an impressive 7 - 0 win which booked them their place in the final against Saint Hugh's School, Lincoln.


The final was a very evenly matched affair with two good footballing sides. The game ebbed and flowed and both sides had their chances. Eventually, after the teams couldn't be separated in open play, the match went to penalties. Once again this proved to be a very close affair but the Westfield team held their nerve best to win the penalty shoot-out 3 - 2 and become 2016 County Champions. They will now go on to represent Lincolnshire in the Midlands Finals in Nottingham in March.
