GOOLE AFC  2 

GLASSHOUGHTON WELFARE 1                                    

                      

WELFARE PICKED THEMSELVES UP FOR THIS VISIT TO THE LEAGUE LEADERS AND PRODUCED A SECOND HALF FIGHT BACK WHICH ALMOST BROUGHT A SHARE OF THE SPOILS

Although Goole had slightly the better of the early exchanges Welfare were always in contention and it was a blow when the home men took a 18th minute lead, a far cross being knocked back in for Gary Shaw to head past Karl Codd.  Welfare began to show their paces and Danny King hit a swerving shot narrowly past the upright, but it was Goole who got the all important next goal, Adam Walker being left free on the right  to actually miss hit a grubber shot past Codd

In the second period Welfare despite having to survive a twice taken penalty situation, Codd saving on both occasions from Steve Davey, after  being judged to have moved off the line at the first kick, called most of the shots and reduced the arrears when Julian Wilkes flicked home a back header from a pinpoint Woolford free kick. The visitors then had opportunity to level on a number of occasions, Lee Palmer glancing a header wide when well placed, and Danny King and Jason Bradley being shot shy after having worked in to good positions, and in the dying moments Lee Parker hit a perfect volley from close range which produced a tremendous reflex save from keeper Danny Fells, to give Goole the points to take on to the reverse fixture at Leeds Road next week, and give them the slight edge for the West Riding County Cup tie between the clubs the following Tuesday at the Victoria Pleasure Grounds.

Team: Karl Codd, Julian Wilkes, Stephen Ball, Richard Dobson, Paul Mattison(Darren Leech), Mark Newton, Andy Seed, Jason Bradley, Lee Parker, Danny King, Martin not used Gareth Liversedge
