Stretton delighted as Ollerton turn game around!

Resurgent Ollerton Town made it five games without defeat after blowing away visitors Glasshoughton Welfare with three quickfire goals midway through the second half, writes Ian Robinson.

Dave Winter’s men trailed Glassy for half an hour before three goals in ten minutes from Aaron Sennett-Neilson, Alex Sennett and, of course, Gavin King turned the game on it’s head.
On media duty after the game was Town skipper Sam Stratton who was delighted with the result, if not the whole performance.

“After a decent run of results, we were hoping for a positive result again today, but we couldn’t have played any worse in the first half to be honest. Glasshoughton battered us and we were lucky it was only 1-0. The second half was a completely different story as we played with much more intensity and I felt we fully deserved the points. The only disappointing thing was the second booking for one of our lads, as I felt both players committed to the challenge, and a good, hard but fair tackle was punished. Anyway, we take the 3 points and hopefully we can keep this good run going!”

The victory moved Ollerton up one place to 15th in Division One with Glasshoughton dropping down one position to 12th.
