On a very dull and wet day for football Welford did not let a bit of rain dishearten their spirits as they claimed their first league win of the season. A strong first half performance saw Welford dominate possession and create some great chances without taking any of them meaning it was goalless at the break.
The second half started slowly for Welford with the team looking sluggish and, in the manager’s words, a bit clueless. The first change, made on the hour, proved crucial as substitute Daniel Penn scored within minutes of his introduction. Welford had to wait until late on to make it safe with some brilliant link up play in the 87th minute seeing Aaron Showler put them 2-0 up. A quick-fire third in the 90th minute from that man Penn rounded off a fantastic 30 minutes for him and 90 minutes for the side.
