Reportage: Horsforth promoted after 6-2 win

AFC HORSFORTH came back from the dead to beat AFC Broadwater 6-2 and secure promotion to Division Two of the Leeds Combination Sunday League.

After a difficult first half, which saw the team 2-0 down, Horsforth came into the second half firing on all cylinders with Dan Petty scoring four goals – the first within the first minute.

Horsforth’s manager Dan Sheard, said: “To go into the half time break 2-0 adrift wasn’t a great position to be in.

“At half time the team came in extremely positive despite being behind.

“The self-belief that we could turn the deficit around was always there.”

By the 75 minute mark Broadwater’s spirit was broken and three goals were scored in quick succession with Petty’s final goal going in on the 75th minute, followed by Bobby Neesam in the 76th and Fred Dulwich in the 77th.

Horsforth’s attention now turns to creating more success and Sheard said: “The future is bright and we look forward to moving onto a higher division.

“We also are looking forward to bringing something back into the Horsforth community in the form of brand new junior set up using our first team squad as coaches.

“We are eagerly looking to get involved in the junior football scene and bring another successful junior set up to Horsforth.”

Horsforth will have another chance of winning silverware when they face Wagon Athletic in the final of the Luty Cup on Sunday May 5, kick off 11am.

The final is being played at the home of Farsley AFC.
