WESTBURY United shocked Southern League Division One South leaders Sholing with a 3-2 comeback victory at Meadow Lane on Saturday.

Previously unbeaten Sholing were two goals to the good at half-time after Owen Roundell-Prince and Lee Wort netted inside the opening 36 minutes.

Having almost gone three goals behind in the second half, Westbury found hope via a spectacular effort from Matty Morris in the 56th minute. The home debutant spotted Sholing’s goalkeeper off his line and sent the ball sailing over him from the half-way line.

Sholing had a third goal disallowed shortly after, and that presented Westbury with the opportunity to continue their comeback - Harvey Flippance bundled in from a corner to equalise.

The Wiltshire side then won it with 17 minutes of normal time to play when Charlie Walton turned inside the box and rifled the ball into the net. A stellar defensive effort prevented Sholing from equalising in the 11 minutes added on.
