Scott Laird says it was good for Weston to get their “first win on the board” after Ben Whitehead’s winner over Hayes & Yeading United on Saturday.

Joel Randall scored his first goal for the Seagulls, after signing on loan from Exeter City, before Eliot Benyon scored an equaliser moments after half time.

Whitehead restored Weston’s lead with a wonderful individual finish and Laird says he was thrilled to pick up the victory.

“It was great,” he said. “To go away against a good Hayes & Yeading side at home. They played some good football, they’ve got some very good players.

“We had to be right at it, we rode our luck, we scored two very good goals and defended very resolutely.

“It’s always good to get our first win on the board, especially away from home.”
