Stanmore Jafferys created a litany of chances and were unlucky to lose against Westwood Park in a spirited affair.

SJ started energetically, pinning the opponents into their own half and taking the lead through Mahdi Hassan Lalji.

A fortunate equaliser for the opposition was followed by an excellently worked goal as Westwood went into half-time 2-1 up.

SJ came out firing once again, creating several golden chances through team play and peppering the opposition goal – to no avail.

As SJ threw on five attackers in a late push for an equaliser, Westwood whipped in a free kick to put the game beyond doubt.

The manager reiterated that his team had won on Expected Goals, and were very unlucky on the day.

Parent Ash Dhalla said: “Goals were an interesting challenge to setup – 8 parents were involved – setting the tone for the day.

“Today’s game was really great to watch despite the end result each and every player gave it their all, and you could see the determination come across.

“Some great skills during the game lots of great teamwork, some really great defending and great ball control. This team will go far.”
