Holmes hails vintage Glasshoughton display

Glasshoughton Welfare joint manager Darren Holmes

Darren Holmes described Glasshoughton Welfare’s performance in the stunning 3-0 win over Campion as a vintage display that they need to bottle up and reproduce.

Second-placed promotion-chasers Campion had been aiming to secure a tenth straight Toolstation NCEL Division One victory.

But goals from Josh Vamplew, Ashley Bell and Mark Ferguson gave Welfare a memorable win.

“To be fair it was probably one of the best performances since we came here three years ago,” joint manager Holmes told Non League Yorkshire.

“As a team, everyone has worked their socks off. We have got a system that we play which is a little different from previous seasons.

“To a man, everyone has done their job tonight and for 90 minutes. The difference tonight compared to previous weeks is that we have performed for 60/70 minutes and then let things slip towards the end.

“Tonight we have kept going right to the end and got our just rewards.

“It was a fantastic performance and we’re scoring goals. Saturday we should have beaten Skegness and we’ve now beaten second in the league.

“We scored four at Skegness who had only conceded four goals prior to us going there.”

Although they are scoring goals, Glasshoughton are still missing chances. 

Against Campion, Welfare should have been more in front at half-time.

“We missed a couple of sitters, but that’s no different to any other weeks.” he said.

“We missed chances in other games, easy chances which would have meant we were out of sight in games we have lost. 

“Rather than been third or fourth bottom, we could be top half and looking at a top half finish.”
