N C East Premier Div                          Sat. 11 Dec 2004

 

SHIREBROOK TOWN                       1            GLASSHOUGHTON WELFARE                           1                                        

 

ALTHOUGH THE SIDES WERE VERY MUCH ON A PAR ON WELFARE’S FIRST EVER VISIT TO LANGWITH ROAD, ONCE AGAIN THE LACK OF CLINICAL FINISHING CAUSED THE VISITORS TO SURRENDER FURTHER POINTS.

Welfare were first to show with Lee Parker going close with a shot on the turn and after withstanding Town’s early reply the visitors should have opened their account, some good one touch play releasing Andy Seed only to drive wide, and Remo Nessa failing to beat the keeper from a narrow angle.  Welfare kept on the offensive as stand in home custodian Craig Shaw first turned an effort from Scott Jackson round the upright before scraping a goal bound cross from under the crossbar with Welfare having no one on hand to finish off.  Town’s first threat came after a quarter of play, Karl Codd forcing a Chris Wall drive away for a corner kick.  At the other end Lee Parker elected to back heel when seemingly well placed to score and after Town’s Aidie Carter had wasted a chance by blazing haplessly over, Scott Jackson went clear but failed to beat Shaw in a one to one situation.

From the interval restart both teams were level pegging until John Haigh sliced through the home defence to put Jackson away but the striker drove across goal with no back up.  Wayne Noteman had a rare pot at goal which went narrowly wide and despite both teams going forward with gusto it was beginning to look as though the game would finish goal less.  However the deadlock was broken on 77 minutes, Town breaking quickly after Remo Nessa had again failed to beat the custodian with colleagues perhaps better placed waiting for the cross, Adie Carter striking a sweet shot into the roof of the net to give Shirebrook a somewhat fortunate lead.  Welfare’s spirits dropped momentarily but then in a rousing finish, and perhaps realizing that they deserved something for their efforts, they went all out and gained just reward when Scott Jackson hit a clever free kick past a poorly organised wall some six minutes from time, and a couple of half chances before the final whistle almost saw them snatch what would have been their first victory in six outings.

Team: Karl Codd, John Haigh, Alex Hanson, Paul Mattison, Wayne Noteman, Darren Leech, Andy Seed, Scott Jackson, Lee Parker, Jamie Thomson (Paul Arkle), Remo Nessa, (Jason Bradley), Gareth Liversedge,
