Denaby United 5 Conisborough 0

On Monday afternoon these teams met at Denaby.

Playing with the wind Conisborough had slightly the best of matters in the first half but failed to score, half-time arrived with a clean sheet.

In the second half, Rushforth scored after 10 minutes play. Keeping up the pressure Hardy notched a second.

The visitors rarely crossed the half way line, Hobson and Shaw dealing successfully with their spasmodic attempts. T.Hardy headed a third goal from a corner superbly placed by Walton. A fourth followed from Ryans. Before the finish Davis scored.
