Derby day delight for Ladies

Sunday 05 November 2017 - by Stuart Smedley (Updated on 05 November 2017 at 16:24)

Four goals from the prolific Beth Westlake sealed Royal Wootton Bassett Town Ladies' seventh successive victory in the South West Women's Football League Eastern Division as they defeated local rivals FC Chippenham 4-1.

The latest win for Becky Gammon's side preserves their five point lead at the top of the division in which they are quickly establishing themselves as the team to beat.

And the potent attacking force they have been since the start of the season is a large reason behind that. In seven games, they have racked up 31 goals - more than four a game, while conceding just eleven times.

Westlake now has sixteen for the season, with twelve coming in the league.

She got started against Chippenham by receiving a Laura Gammon pass, taking a defender on in the box and producing a good finish.

For her second, she headed home a Laura Jefferies free kick before completing her hat trick with a shot from distance that trickled over the line.

Westlake then produced a cool long range lob to round off the scoring.

With her brother Mason Thompson opening the scoring for the first team against Longlevens yesterday, her family have contributed significantly to important victories for the club's senior men's and women's teams this weekend.

Given the form her and her teammates are in, there seems little capable of stopping Bassett.
