Saturday 12th January 2018, friendly
West 4 (Hall 36, 41, No. 16 77, No. 12 86)
Rochdale Sacred Heart 2 (80, 82)
An experimental West side beat Manchester League Rochdale Sacred Heart in an entertaining Brookburn Road friendly.
The West fans who braved the conditions were rewarded with a goal-filled afternoon, with a Stephen Hall brace giving the home side a half-time lead.
A West substitute added a third with 13 minutes to go, but Sacred Heart rallied and, after their goalkeeper had made a string of impressive saves, pulled two goals back in quick succession. But another West sub restored the two-goal advantage with four minutes remaining.
West resume their league campaign next Saturday, when Silsden visit Brookburn Road.
