Toolstation NCEL Division One - Game 25
13/01/24 - Glasshoughton Welfare vs Wombwell Town
The week previously the Wellers took the lead in under a minute and against Glasshoughton they took the lead after 35 seconds (although there is dispute that it may have been 36) as Jordan Kershaw crossed from the right to find the head of Eddie Agnew at the far post who gave former Weller keeper Alec Hanson no chance with the finish.
Kershaw doubled the lead ten minutes later as the ball was flicked into the striker's path by Gadhafi Kiwanuka and the keeper was beaten by the low shot into the far corner.
The only chance the home side had in the first half came on 28 minutes as another former Weller, Will Harling, was involved in the build-up. The midfielder battled to the edge of the area before going down - with appeals falling on deaf ears the follow up shot was fired out of the ground onto the main road.
Kershaw grabbed his second of the game and Wombwell's third on 31 minutes with a well taken header into the stanchion of the goal. Jason Paling's cross found the striker with plenty of space in the middle of the penalty area.
Half Time: GWFC 0, WTFC 3.
It took the Wellers just six minutes into the second half to add another and it was a brace for Agnew who beat the defender to the ball as Owen Sykes played the ball down the left into the penalty area. The striker, behind the defender, reached the ball on the volley and found the target.
Six minutes later and Louis Wardle made it five with his first goal since his return to the club. The free kick magician fired the dead ball towards goal and beat Hanson at his right hand post.
A flurry of substitutes re-energized the Wellers front line and Brad Kerr made it six with 12 minutes to go as he cut inside the defender from the left and curled his shot past the keeper, whose fingertips weren't strong enough.
As the clock ticked over to 90 minutes Kerr scored his second of the afternoon from close range to make it a magnificent seven. Callum Walton's low left wing cross beat the outstretched arm of Hanson and found Kerr who had to simply redirect the ball into the net to record the Wellers biggest NCEL win to date.
