FA Vase 2nd Qual. Rnd                               Sat 1 Oct 2005

 

GLASSHOUGHTON WELFARE               7                        ROSSINGTON MAIN                      1

 

ANY DESIGNS THE LOWER PLACED VISITORS HAD OF PULLING OFF A GIANT KILLING ACT WERE SYSTAMATICALLY DASHED BY A SKILFUL AND COMPETENT DISPLAY BY A LIVELY GLASSHOUGHTON.

Within seven minutes of the start Welfare displayed their game plan, Carl Fox latching on to a defence splitting ball to feed the eager Danny King who zoomed through to plant a perfect low shot past keeper Adam Valente..

Several minutes later and Main knew it was for real and Andy Seed worked in from the by line to rake a shot across Valente to put Welfare further ahead and well in command.  A clawing finger tip save from Valente denied Welfare’s Mark Newton and despite going close on a number of occasions Welfare were denied a further score until the 39th minute when King released Alex Higgins for the striker to drive past Valente to claim a goal on his first full outing.  Andy Seed was on hand to steer in a cross from Carl Fox to put Welfare in an unassailable position but the moments later almost on the stroke of half time the event was soured when Mark Newton was dismissed for retaliation after being the recipient of a late challenge by Main’s Bryan Craig.

From the restart Welfare were initially a little at sea with the loss of Newton but despite Tom Morgan being required to make his first save of the game from Main’s Paul Bradley and then being beaten by a perfect Ben Hickey lob to give the visitors some slight relief, the home men soon regrouped and went further ahead when some excellent work by Seed gave Higgins the opportunity to score his second and put the home men firmly back in to the driving seat. 

Welfare continued to exploit a shaky defence and added to their tally, substitute Stephen Downes eventually striking home after Rossington had somehow blocked out a number of attempts, and in the closing minutes Andy Seed put the icing on the cake by completing his hat trick to take Welfare through in to the next round with plenty to spare.

Team:  Tom Morgan, Gareth Liversedge (Adam Sadler), Paul Mattison, Richard Stack, Mark Newton, Darren Leach,  Andy Seed, Alex Higgins, Danny King, (Stephen Downes), Jamie Thompson (Richard Dobson), Carl Fox, not used – Adam Fox, Julien Wilkes
