Goodwin signs off with a great win

Keighley Town 0 Keighley Athletic 4
Athletic finished the Wharfedale Triangle Sunday League season on a high with victory over local rivals Keighley Town.
With players missing through injury and other commitments, the Athletes had to draft in some old heads.
And they rolled back the years to shock the confident Town outfit.
It was Town that started strongly, but it was the blue side of Keighley that took an early lead from a fine strike by top scorer Joe Brady.
There were attacks from both sides without further goals right until the start of the second half when Aaron Davis tapped home from inside the box from a precise cross by Steve Kernan.
The third goal followed within 10 minutes; an identical move saw Maf Dykes the provider for Brady.
It was the fourth and final goal left players and spectators in awe when the Dykes brothers combined skilfully. Maf was the provider yet again with a neat ball over the top for man of the match Adam to beat Town’s left back to a 50/50 and break clear.
With Town’s defence nowhere to be seen, Dykes hit a thunderous shot from the edge of the box, which hit both posts before nestling in the back of the net to spark final-like celebrations.
Town pushed for a consolation goal but couldn’t break down the Athletes solid defence.
It was a fitting finale for Athletic’s player/manager Mick Goodwin who stepped down as manager at the final whistle.
