Three goals in a four minute spell helped Glasshoughton Welfare to a convincing victory at home to Westella & Willerby in Division One of the Toolstation NCE League.

Welfare led early through Ryan Poskitt, who netted after just seven minutes, but their visitors, who are scrapping to avoid relegation, provided stubborn resistance.

However, the floodgates opened after Nathan Keightley scored 12 minutes from time with a cross-shot.

Two minutes later Ashley Scothern’s shot found the bottom corner before Keightley bagged his second when he outpaced the defence on the left hammered the ball past the keeper.

Gareth Hunter was MOM.

Ninth-placed Glasshoughton are away to Ollerton Town, in 17th, this Saturday (3pm).
