GLASSHOUGHTON WELFARE    0  SELBY TOWN 1                                     

 

DESPITE BEING THE LESSER TEAM FOR A LARGE PART OF THE GAME, ONLY A ‘GIFTED’ GOAL FROM A MOMENTARY LACK OF CONCENTRATION SEPERATED WELFARE AND LEAGUE LEADERS TOWN AT THE FINAL WHISTLE.

Both teams began with any lack of conviction but after six minutes Cameron Stuart finding  himself in oceans of space, so much that he could look up and spot home keeper Carl Shackelton well out and in no man’s land, put Town ahead with a perfectly executed lob.

Selby were on song from this and Welfare were indebted to Shackelton for blocking out two close goal bound efforts from an eager visiting forward line, and it was not until 25 minutes of play that Glasshoughton produced their first effort, a Marc Newton shot which barely troubled visiting keeper Adam Mitchell.  Town’s Adam Wash went close with a superb overhead kick and Welfare had a further let of when the bustling Jason Harris hit a thunderous thirty yards drive which having beaten Shackelton cannoned off the crossbar to rebound almost back to the halfway line.  Although Welfare were stretched to contain the lively Town forwards they had a stroke of misfortune themselves when a scuffler of a free kick by Andy Seed went all the way though only to strike the inside of the upright and come out to safety.

Although the visitors forwards always looked dangerous Welfare eventually began to get in to the game and Carl Fox forced a stinging save from Mitchell before the keeper narrowly won the chase for a through ball from the same player.  Welfare were showing brief signs of finding the leveller particularly through Andy Seed but at the end of the day they just had not enough flair to break down a well organised defence.

Team: Marc Shackelton, Gareth Liversedge, Julian Wilkes, Richard Dobson, Paul Mattison, Marc Newton, Andy Seed, Chris Newton, Lee Parker (Darren Leech), Phil Newton, (James Russell), Carl Fox, Remo Nesa (Paul Arkle),
