New kids on the block Wakefield AFC survived a scare in their first ever NCEL fixture after struggling to overcome ten-man Glasshoughton Welfare who were reduced to nine at one stage.

Wakefield won 3-1 but they were behind for the majority of the game as Kiyani Clayton silenced the large home support in the fifth minute.

Three goals in eight minutes starting in the 72nd minute swung victory to Gabe Mozzini’s side.
