WELFARE GAVE EVERYTHING IN THIS LOCAL DERBY BUT LACKED THE FINESSE IN FRONT OF GOAL TO SECURE WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A DESERVED SHARE OF THE SPOILS

A long clearance from keeper Tom Morgan presented Welfare with an early chance but Richard Stack lifted over and with the visitors having the best of the early exchanges a further long range but pacey shot from Stack tested home custodian Andy Brooke. As the home men settled the game became end to end but some woeful defending by Welfare allowed Andy Roan to evade at least three tackles to find Renwick Parkinson who squeezed home past Morgan to put Town ahead on 17 mins.

In Welfare’s reply Wilkes got in a good cross which found no takers and when Welfare appeared to have levelled through Wilkes the score was denied by a benevolent referee, judging that the keeper had been impeded when in fact the custodian had mad is own problems.

With the official continuing to frustrate players with some unexplainable and indifferent decisions tempers began to boil which resulted in a flurry of yellow cards, mainly against the visitors, and the interval came as a welcome opportunity for things to calm down.

Welfare came out revitalised and took the game to Town but were very soon the recipients of another howler from the man in the middle, failing to take the necessary action when Carl Fox rounded Brooke only to be hauled down by the keeper.  Although Welfare enjoyed the lion’s share of the second period Town were still a threat through the lively Rowan and substitute Gerrard  McCargo who struck the crossbar with a tremendous free kick.  Welfare went all out for the equaliser but when Danny King had consecutive goal bound efforts blocked out and Darren Leach struck the woodwork it was not to be their day and Town hung on to register their first points of the season.

Team:  Tom Morgan, Gareth Liversedge, Paul Mattison,, Darren Leach, Mark Newton, Stuart Holmes (Daniel Lodge), Paul Arkle, Julien Wilkes, Carl Fox, Richard Stack, Danny King, Richard Dobson, Ashley Fieldhouse
