Pre-season Friendly - Sunday 21st July - versus Wath Telstar
Match Report - Wellers Snatch a Late Winner.
Wombwell Town started their pre-season campaign with an entertaining game against Sunday League outfit Wath Telstar.
With five new players in the starting eleven it could have taken the home side a while to find their feet, but after just two minutes one of the new signings, Gareth McDermott from Dodworth MW, showed what he was about when he beat the offside trap and then the keeper one-on-one from the edge of the area.
Another of the new signings, Bradley Kerr, made it two after 23 minutes before McDermott pounced again to make it three nil two minutes later.
The visitors refused to give up and pulled the game back to three all by the 78th minute. The first on 53 minutes saw a awkward bounce fall to the striker who struck the crossbar with a teammate on hand to put in the rebound.
A winner came three minutes from time when Bradley Kerr broke free before his shot was blocked. The ball fell kindly to trialist Chris Byrnes who drilled the ball past a crowd of players and into the net in off the far post.
Full Time: WTFC 4, Wath Telstar 3.
