Wordsworth hits winner as Railway suffer gut-wrenching defeat

Worsbrough Bridge striker Kyle Wordsworth

Kyle Wordsworth hit the winner as Worsbrough Bridge came from behind twice to win 3-2 at Harrogate Railway in a game lucky to go ahead because of the wet weather.

It was a gut-wrenching defeat in soggy conditions for Des Macorison and his Railway side who were so close to victory until Adam Jordan was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Macorison has assembled such a talented squad with many rough diamonds, but every-week Railway encounter some kind of bad luck.

It was one of those talented rough diamonds who put them in front after five minutes in the Toolstation NCEL Division One clash. Toby Harris burst through and slid the ball home past Dan Morton.

A long range Kieran Hirst levelled the proceedings ahead of half-time.

Railway’s danger man Joe Jagger restored Railway’s lead from the penalty spot after the break.

The departure of Jordan on 66 minutes signalled a swing of fortune towards Worsbrough, who equalised with another ‘worldie’ from Hirst.

The ten men of Railway were hanging on by now and Wordsworth won it for Worsbrough with 12 minutes left on the clock.
