Calum Ward pulled one back for Welfare with time running out and Hunter rued the errors that denied Glasshoughton a place in the Preliminary Round.
“The first half was very even and we just edged it on possession. I think we had more chances than they had, but 1-1 at half-time was probably a fair result.
“When we came out for the second half I really fancied us to go on and win the game. But, it was two long balls – the centre-half has missed one header and they’ve scored. The goalkeeper then missed a header and it let them have another goal.
“It was 1-1 and within 60 seconds we were 3-1 down. We made three substitutions and that turned the game on its head in the last 15 minutes. We played well and pulled a great goal back, but we left it a bit late.”
Jarrow started the second half in positive fashion and a period of pressure saw Welfare stopper Paul Hagreen make a couple of saves from Nicholson and Young. A Jarrow goal was coming and when Ally Wilson missed a header, Dean Nicholson was through on goal and he lobbed Hagreen. John Hirst tried to prevent the goal, but failed.
“The referee let an awful lot go and I think the game got a bit out of hand in the last 25 minutes because he had let so many free kicks go unpunished.
“They wasted so much time in the last 20 minutes and he didn’t want to do anything about it. He kept saying ‘hurry up, I’m putting it on my watch’ but he never stopped them from doing it.
“What happened was frustrations started getting the better of a few players and because he let the bad challenges go unpunished, it got worse and contributed to what happened at the end.
“He was a fairly young referee and he wasn’t strong enough to referee a game where there was a lot of big challenges and tempers.”
