Welford had a strong squad of 14 players and for the first 20 minutes they matched Welland Valley and the game was very competitive. Welland Valley scored around the 25 minute mark but Welford very quickly equalized with a fantastic goal struck 25 yards out. Welland Valley started to get into their stride around the 30 minute mark and scored a 2nd goal before half-time.
The 2nd half for Welford was hard going with Welland Valley dominating the midfield area. Welland Valley took charge of the game and scored another 2 goals and although Welford had a few chances, they were unable to put the ball in the back of the net.
With 3 minutes to full-time, Welland Valley took a goal kick which was headed straight back by Welford’s striker into the back of the net. A very bizarre end to what was a competitive game played in good spirits.
