Mr Versatile, that’s Jack Westbrook, and manager Mike Ford knows he has a player that would – and probably could – fill every position on the pitch.

Westbrook has developed into a dependable central defender who can also play at full-back but the 21-year-old was moved into midfield during Saturday’s game at Frome Town. And, given the testing conditions, Westbrook’s strength was just what Banbury United required to come away with three Evo-Stik Southern League points.

Jack Westbrook has been outstanding at the back but I chucked him into midfield at Frome and he was a warrior in there for us

Puritans boss Mike Ford

Ford said: “Jack Westbrook has become a very reliable player for this club. He’s played more than 100 games and he’s been outstanding at the back but I chucked him into midfield at Frome and he was a warrior in there for us.”
