Toolstation NCEL Division One
Nostell Miners Welfare 3-0 Beverley Town
Nostell Miners Welfare arrested a bad run of form after a clinical second half performance against Dave Ricardo’s Beverley Town.
Harvey Booth, Joe Wood and Jack McGahan brought the smiles back to Crofton Community Centre.
The first half had been tight.
Nostell blew a golden opportunity to take the lead in the opening ten minutes. Tawheed Ahmed had been hacked down but Wood’s weak penalty was saved.
Booth’s turn and superb finish from the edge of the penalty area in the 54th minute set the wheels in motion for Nostell.
Their goalkeeper Rhys Westcarr then made one important save but truth was Nostell should have sown up their win earlier.
Wood missed an open goal in almost Ronny Rosenthal-style while Ahmed went close.
Wood made up for his two misses by scoring a fine goal after breaking clear.
McGahan sealed the win after finding space on the left.
What They Said
Beverley Town manager Dave Ricardo
“Second half we did create three or four chances which was three or four more than we did create in the first half.
“What I would say is they scored against the run of play and they backed it up with two other goals.
“They deserved it overall. They were the better side, there’s no complaints. Fair play to them”
