N C East Premier Div                          Tue 16 Nov 2004

 

GLASSHOUGHTON WELFARE     4                                                   ARMTHORPE WELFARE  2                                                                     

 

WITH BOTH TEAMS FIELDING WEAKENED SIDES A CERTAIN LEVEL OF SKILL WAS LACKING BUT WAS MADE UP FOR WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF ENTHUSIASM AS BOTH CAMPS VIED FOR MUCH NEEDED LEAGUE POINTS.

The hosts were unfortunate not to take an early lead as good approach work put Remo Nessa on goal but a timely challenge by Armthorpes Paul Teather denied the final opportunity.  Glasshoughton were calling the early tune but after ten minutes went behind as keeper Karl Codd allowed a innocuous looking grubber shot from Nathan Hall to slip under him.  Fortunately within 40 seconds the hosts were level, going forward from the restart for Nessa to find Andy Seed who hit a crisp shot across keeper Gary Strepham in to the far corner.  On a bumpy surface both defences looked jittery as Seed blasted a clear opportunity well over and Armthorpes Lee Danysz missed an equally easy chance at the other end.  As the interval approached it was looking like stalemate until defender Danny Jarvis lost possession on his own penalty spot and Nessa quickly fed Lee Parker to coolly round Strepham and put Glasshoughton ahead.

Within minutes of the interval restart with Armthorpe appealing for an infringement Lee Parker continued where he had left off in the first half by clinically putting Glasshoughton further ahead and seemingly finishing off the visitors.  It was not quite the finish yet though has a fiercely struck free kick by Danysz beat Codd to put the visitors back in to contention and there were anxious times for Glasshoughton until Martin Woolford finally struck gold following a series of mazy runs, to extinguish the visitors brave fight back and give Glasshoughton much deserved and needed points. 

Team: Karl Codd, Mark Newton, Julian Wilkes, John Haigh, Alan Hanson, Darren Leech (Shaun Constable)

Andy Seed, Jason Bradley, Lee Parker, Remo Nessa (Dominique Blair), Jermaine Manners (Martin Woolford).
