TOOLSTATION LEAGUE FIRST DIVISION: Millard boosts five-star hosts

This Is Wiltshire: Westbury United’s Simon Millard (10) celebrates the second of his four goals against Keynsham Town on Tuesday Westbury United’s Simon Millard (10) celebrates the second of his four goals against Keynsham Town on Tuesday

ADAM Collington reckons says that his Westbury United side offered up a glimpse of their true potential as they put Keynsham Town to the sword on Tuesday night.

The Meadow Lane side notched up their first win of the new Toolstation League First Division season in style as Simon Millard scored four goals to blow away his side’s Somerset opponents.

Manager Collington was left purring by Westbury’s display and thought that United produced a team performance to savour.

“We were very good and to be honest, we could have easily scored three or four more,” said the Westbury chief.

“We’ve been threatening a display like that for a long time and the fact is that it wasn’t about two or three players but about the whole squad.

“I changed Simon Millard’s position a tiny bit and he did really well to get on the end of everything and I have to make a special mention to Cameron Miller, our keeper from the reserves.

“Alex Shaftoe is still out and I got injured on Saturday. I tried to get a keeper in (Adam Sheppard) to help me out as a one-off but he couldn’t make it because his child was unwell. I called Cameron at 5pm and he came in and was fantastic.

“It’s going to be difficult for those players that weren’t in the squad to get back into the team now.”

With Millard starring with four or Westbury’s five goals, Keynsham’s Seb Spiller also put one into his own net.

On Saturday, Collington’s side were on the receiving end of a last-gasp equaliser against Wellington.

Mark Young scored twice, with his first coming from the penalty spot as the home side led 2-1 but deep in injury time, Wellington piled on the pressure and levelled matters through Luke Boyle.

Goalscorer Young was then sent off for his part in a fracas after the final whistle.
