N C East Premier Div                          Tue. 7 Dec 2004

 

GLASSHOUGHTON WELFARE                           1         HARROGATE RAILWAY ATHLETIC     5                                

 

DESPITE TAKING AN EARLY LEAD THROUGH DEBUTANT SCOTT JACKSON, WELFARE SERIOUSLY UNDER STRENGTH THROUGH INJURY AND WORK COMMITMENTS WERE SWEPT AWAY BY WELL ORGANISED VISITORS LYING CURRENTLY SECOND PLACE IN THE DIVISION.

Rail started much the slicker outfit but although Karl Codd spilled a Scott Ryan effort and a Chris Howarth pile driver came back off the underside of the crossbar it was welfare who opened the scoring on 14 minutes, Alex Hogg Hanson knocking in a fine free kick for Guiseley and ex Ossett Town player Scott Jackson to rise above everyone and head home at the far post.  Welfare quickly had a further half chance which fell badly for Remo Nessa but although Jackson was distributing well for the home men, the visitors began to take command, having a goal effort denied for offside before levelling when Lyle Hillier met a low cross from Andy Shuttleworth to slide home at the foot of the upright, and with the last action of the first period Rail went ahead when Codd failed to collect a far post header and Hillier knocked in his second.

From the restart the slick passing game of the visitors never allowed Welfare back in to the game and although Welfare tried to combat by ringing the changes with all substitutes being brought in to action, Jamie Thomson back after a long injury replacing Darren Leech, Danny King for Shaun Constable and Jason Bradley for Lee Parker, it really was a matter of time before Rail went further ahead the goal coming on 73 minutes, Ryan Haigh hitting home a grubber shot from the edge of the box.  As Welfare capitulated Rail added further goals, Scott Ryan being the first to react after Codd had parried the initial effort and substitute Graham Marchant adding to his former club’s woe by rounding things off with a cross shot from close range in the closing minutes.

 

Team: Karl Codd, Gareth Liversedge, John Haigh, Richard Dobson, Alex Hanson, Darren Leech,
