Wetherilt sees Red as Jimmies Held at Home

March 26, 2012

THANKS TO DENNIS BOOTH: Mike Wetherilt went from hero to villain as Heywood St James battled to a valuable point at home to Dukinfield Town in the Manchester Football League.

Wetherilt continued his fine form with another two goals in the 2-2 draw, but was sent off after the final whistle of an intense game.

Jimmies went in front after four minutes, Weatherilt driving home after Chris Nuttall’s shot rebounded off the keeper.

Dukinfield equalised 15 mins later with a great looping header at the far post back past the keeper.

Within five minutes, Jimmies regained the lead. Nuttall again played a pinpoint cross that Weatherilt headed down into the net to the delight of the Phoenix Park faithful.

Five minutes before half-time Dukinfield levelled for the second time, a brilliant dipping volley from 30 yards giving Tom Elford no chance.

There were no further goals in the second half, which was scrappy and had little shape. Jimmies became nervy and frustrated at the snappy tackling visitors.

Weatherilt’s running spat with the Dukinfield centre-back spilled over after the final whistle and Jimmies striker was sent off.

It moves Jimmies ahead of the relegation zone and with so many home games left, things look hopeful for the Heywood side.
