SELBY TOWN   0      GLASSHOUGHTON WELFARE    4    

                                       

IN A GAME WHERE THERE WAS LITTLE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN BOTH TEAMS, THE VISITORS LASTED THE PACE BETTER AND THE OPPORTUNISM OF HAT TRICK HERO DANNY KING GAVE THEM THE DESERVED VICTORY IF PERHAPS BY A FLATTERING MARGIN.

Welfare were without Carl Fox, Richard Stack, Paul Arkle and resident keeper Tom Morgan but welcomed the return of Richard Dobson and drafted in Academy custodian Adam Fox.

On a wte and sticky surface Welfare were the first to threaten but Julian Wilkes after working in to a good position hesitated and was blocked out. The game was held up for a lengthy period for home keeper Adam Mitchell to receive treatment after being laid out in a goalmouth clash and upon resumtion Town’s Chris Kamara and Adam Wash drove half chances over without troubling the visitors keeper.

In a game swinging from end to end the Robins attack was repeatedly blunted by Richard Dobson keeping a tight reign on Jason Harris the normally prolific home striker.  Welfare looked to be getting a slight edge and a long lob by Jamie Thompson, which looked to be drifting under the bar, forced a fine save from Mitchell.  Welfare went ahead on 38 minutes when Mitchell from deep a corner kick made a reflex save from a close in Wilkes header and Danny King was the first to react and prod the ball home

If the fist half had been equal the second period undoubtedly belonged to the visitors and an early handling offence, which the visitors camp were convinced was within the penalty area, put the Reds defence in trouble and only some desperate defending retrieved the situation.  The pace of Seed and particularly King was repeatedly causing problems in the Reds back line which on the three quarter mark eventually capitulated when Wilkes controlled a long clearance to chip over the last line for King to dart through and drive past the advancing Mitchell to attain the score which Welfare and searched and probed for and which effectively killed off the home challenge.       

 With Welfare comfortably in command towards the end they were able to add to their tally when King became the provider for Andy Seed to outstrip the defence to shoot past Matthews on 87 minutes and on the stroke of full time King went clear to angle across Matthews and complete his hat trick.

Team:  Adam Fox, Adam Sadler, Richard Dobson Ashley Brewer), Paul Mattison, Darren Leech (Stuart Baldwin), Andy Seed, Julian Wilkes, Danny King, Jamie Thompson, Mark Newton, Ashley Fieldhouse
