Aberford Albion 4-2 Wetherby athletic West Yorkshire League Cup

Wetherby travelled to first division Aberford looking to try and book a place in the west Yorkshire League Cup semi-final.

We have already met twice this season and both times the honours have gone to Aberford – would we be able to gain some revenge?

Wetherby started well with Phil Milsom providing some good balls down the right wing.

Wetherby produced some lovely football, but couldn’t find the final touch and two more goals for the home side (including another superb strike) made it 3-0.

The Tangerines pulled one back in the 27th minute when Ali Bowles got the final touch to Josh Forster’s cross.

Joe Whiteley gives his marker the run around.

Despite the scoreline, Wetherby were producing good football and had plenty of possession. However, good defending kept them at bay.

In the end, the match finished 4-2 to the hosts. Both teams produced some good attacking football, but well done to Aberford who progress into the next round.

Next week sees the return of league action to The Ings as we welcome Hunslet Club.
