New-look Welland win
8:30am Wednesday 18th September 2013 in Football
WELLAND returned to winning ways in Cheltenham Association League Division Three, beating Tivoli Rovers 3-0 with a good display.
With the squad depleted due to injuries and holidays, the hosts had the best early chance when Mark Holbrow nodded Ben Pearson’s cross wide.
Welland took the lead midway through the firsthalf when neat passing ended in John Gullick finding striker Omar Elmougy who finished well. Keeper Dan Hughes pulled off a fine save to keep the lead intact at the break.
Welland controlled the start of the second period and Elmougy’s mazy run resulted in a pinpoint cross for Holbrow who buried a six-yard header.
Hughes saved well with his feet and good defending ensured the clean sheet.
A bizarre third goal completed the scoring when James Nightingale’s free-kick from well inside his own half was misjudged by the keeper.
