Big Things in Cup Matches

Conisborough 6 Great Houghton 0

For the second successive match, Conisborough Welfare on Saturday registered six goals – this in the Montagu Cup against Great Houghton.

In spite of their surprising defeat by Manvers in the Challenge Cup, Welfare seem to be getting back into stride, and are doing big things in cup matches.

Their first important tie was against Rossington in the Senior Cup. Here they ran up double figures, and subsequently beat the Rovers of Grimethorpe.

Now, they are drawn at home to Armthorpe Welfare, and I understand they do not intend transferring the game to Denaby – as in the match with Manvers.

This is the first time Conisborough Welfare have taken part in the Sheffield tourney. Good Luck!
