West Riding County Cup- First Rnd Replay              Tue 9 Nov 2004

 

GLASSHOUGHTON WELFARE  1 - 2 GOOLE AFC                          

 

WITH A DEPLETED SIDE WELFARE GAVE A GOOD ACCOUNT OF THEMSELVES BUT SLIPPED OUT OF THE COUNTY CUP AT THE SECOND TIME OF ASKING, THE DISMISSAL OF MARK NEWTON MAKING AN ALREADY DIFFICULT TASK ONE MORE HURDLE TOO FAR, THE ONLY POSITIVE PART OF THE NIGHT BEING THE RETURN OF CARL FOX FOR THE LAST TEN MINUTES AFTER BEING SIDELINED ALL SEASON WITH INJURY

Welfare could have gone ahead in the opening minutes when Martin Woolford got the ball across the goal mouth but there were no takers and it was the visitors who went closest when Craig Gorman struck the foot of the upright, but with a lively start Glasshoughton were not to be denied and Woolford hit a fine low shot in off the post to beat keeper Danny Fells on 18 mins.  Goole were level on 40 minutes when inexperienced defending allowed Steve Rollinson to chase forward and drive past Karl Codd.

A tangle between Welfare’s Mark Newton and Goole’s Mark Willoughby saw both players getting a yellow card and moments later when Newton clumsily caught Adam Walker to receive a second yellow and automatic red and dismissal, Welfare were left with a mountain to climb from the start of the second period.

The dismissal proved to be the turning point of the game as the visitors had space to come forward in droves and although Welfare performed heroics with an inexperienced back line, John Haigh being outstanding, Goole snatched the all decisive goal when Rollinson was allowed space to run again and beat Codd with a low drive.  Welfare were stretched to the limit and the game ended with Goole well on top despite having a third goal disallowed for offside.    

 

Team: Karl Codd, Justin Wilkes, Alex Hanson, John Haigh, Suart Holmes (Darren Leech), Shaun Constable, (Jermaine Manners), Dominique Blair, Danny King (Carl Fox), Lee Parker, Mark Newton, Martin Woolford
