Britannia Sports v Golcar United

6.10pm  18 April 2018

West Riding County Amateur League, Premier Division
Britannia Sports 1 Golcar United 4 (att 32)

Comfortable derby win for Golcar although they had to come from a goal down before triumphing at Huddersfield-based Britannia Sports.

The home side's opening goal was against the run of play, and was a bit of a gift following poor defending by Golcar. Once the visitors got level they soon scored again, and were ahead 2-1 at half time.

A third Golcar goal came shortly after the break, and they rounded off the scoring thanks a fourth with about half-an-hour left to play.

The result keeps Golcar in with a chance of the league title, seven points behind leaders Salts with two games in hand, while Britannia remain too close to the foot of the table for comfort.

Britannia Sports are based at the Paddock Athletic Club, a former cricket ground. I was a little surprised the single pitch wasn't even roped off, but clubs have enough to organise for early evening kick offs without worrying about things like that, and it's a nice and enclosed venue for football.
