Hemsworth MW were in good form as they signed off on their pre-season games ahead of their first campaign in the Premier Division of the NCE League.

Up against Silsden last Saturday, they were three up by half-time and went on to record a fine 5-0 success.

New boy Brice Tiani sent Wells on the way to victory with a 13th minute penalty and six minutes later another new boy, Del Pollock, made it two.

Goals either side of half-time by Bill Law kept Hemsworth in control and they added a fifth just after the hour mark when Sam Jones netted.

Hemsworth suffered a 2-0 defeat in last Thursday’s pre-season game against higher league Shaw Lane when former Frickley striker Gavin Allott netted twice.

Wells now play their first competitive game of the new season this Saturday when they host Runcorn Linnets in the extra preliminary round of the FA Cup (kick-off 3pm).

They then play their first-ever NCE Premier Division game next Wednesday when away to Parkgate (kick-off 7.45pm).
