After a slow start, Westie soon blossomed into a fine centre half either as part of a back three, or in a 4-4-2 formation where he formed formidable partnerships with Graeme Lee and then Micky Nelson. A quick player with good positional awareness and a solid tackle he bailed the team out of awkward positions on numerous occasions. For a player who made so few mistakes, he was unlucky that a couple of his errors were punished in high-profile games. His mistake in a playoff semi-final against Cheltenham cost his team a vital win and his dismissal in the playoff final in 2005 was a pivotal moment as Pools lost in extra time. It was a sad end to what turned out to be his last appearance in a Pools shirt. But Westwood experienced many more highs than lows in a Pools career that stretched to well over 250 games, and he will be remembered as one of the finest centre-halfs ever to grace Victoria Park.
