HEMSWORTH MW bowed out of the Northern Counties East League (NCEL) Cup at the first round stage with a 2-1 defeat at Dinnington Town on Tuesday night.

Welfare opened their NCEL Division 1 campaign with victory at local rivals Pontefract Collieries at the weekend but couldn’t keep the winning momentum going at Town.

Boss Wayne Benn won’t be too concerned, however, after revealing to Express Sport that he’d be making “seven or eight” changes to his squad, with the league and Saturday’s FA Cup clash taking priority.
