Bearpark Welfare Unlucky In This 1950 Game

Bearpark were unlucky not to win their FA Amateur Cup fixture at Hartlepool RA. The efforts of Hartlepool RA to play class football baulked against a quick tackling Bearpark defence. Wilson, the Bearpark centre half, and Robson were especially good. In one incident Wilson kicked the ball off the goal line with Minnis out of his goal. Bearpark began to press and were rewarded with a goal from Carr after 25 minutes. Carr missed a penalty for Bearpark in the second half and Harlepool RA’s inside left equalised with only ten minutes to go. Final Score 1-1.

The replay took take place on 30/09/50 and Bearpark’s team for that match was:

 Minnis, Blakeburn, Nelson, Graham, Wilson, Robson, Patterson, Carr, Hurst, Ainsley, Brown. Reserve Cummings.
