HEMSWORTH MW kicked-off their 2012-13 Northern Counties East League (NCEL) campaign with a slender victory at derby rivals Pontefract Collieries on Saturday.

Neil Towler’s 65th-minute strike proved enough to give Welfare all three Division 1 points at the Beechnut Lane Stadium and get their campaign off to a winning start.

Wayne Benn’s men will turn their attentions to NCEL League Cup 1st round action tomorrow, Tuesday, when they visit Dinnington Town (kick-off 7.45pm).
