Glasshoughton Welfare bounced back from the disappointment of a narrow FA Vase defeat to Selby Town as they beat Shirebrook Town to climb out of the bottom three in the Toolstation NCE Division One.

They found themselves trailing after 12 minutes to a Keiron Sykes-Tobin goal, but quickly hit back through James Woodhouse and were level at the break.

The result remained in the balance until Welfare were awarded a penalty five minutes from time and Ashley Bell held his nerve to convert the spot kick and bring all the points back with Houghton.
