Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2015/16 #54

21st February, 2016

The chase for the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division title has swung a little further in Tadcaster Albion's favour after they returned to the top of the table on Saturday with a 3-1 victory at Rainworth Miners Welfare.

The Brewers went behind to a third minute penalty which was converted by Matthew Sykes but Josh Greening quickly levelled and Adam Baker ensured the visitors were ahead by the interval before a crucial third was added by Greening on the hour mark.

Tadcaster are two points clear with four games in hand of Bridlington Town who are up to second after their 7-1 home win over Brigg Town despite conceding first to a ninth-minute opener from Luke Anderson.

From that point on, the Seasiders took control, leading 5-1 at half-time with two each for Chris Adams and Joel Sutton adding to their equaliser from Will Waudby whilst a Scott Mathews own goal and a seventh from Jamie Reeson completed the scoring in the second period.

Worksop Town, who began the day at the top of the table, drop to third with a 3-2 loss at Maltby Main, the Tigers being the only top-half side to lose.

They took the lead through Alex Nightingale but three goals in the last quarter-of-an-hour in the first half from Nicky Darker, Joshua Nodder and Lee Hill put the hosts in control and Worksop could only muster a late consolation in the second period from Kyle Jordan.

Fourth and fifth placed Handsworth Parramore and Cleethorpes Town both drew 3-3 at home, Handsworth requiring an injury-time equaliser from Richard Adams to snatch a point against Thackley whilst Cleethorpes let a three goal first half lead slip as Clipstone produced a great fightback.

Albion Sports, who won 1-0 at home to Garforth Town, and Staveley Miners Welfare, 2-1 winners at Nostell Miners Welfare thanks to goals from Kieran Watson and Daniel Fletcher, now complete the top seven.

Joe Thornton's seven minute first half hat-trick for Athersley Recreation put his side in control at Retford United but the match would eventually finish 3-3.

And, there were home wins for Barton Town Old Boys, 2-0 against Pontefract Collieries, and for Pickering Town, 3-2 against Parkgate.

The bottom three clash between Liversedge and Armthorpe Welfare was postponed an hour before kick-off due to an unfit pitch.

Division One leaders Hemsworth Miners Welfare are now eleven points clear after they won 1-0 at second placed AFC Mansfield, Harry Viggars settling a tight contest with a goal ten minutes from time.

On a day where there were no changes of position in the table, the five sides directly below Mansfield all won.

Jake Currie netted twice for third-placed Shirebrook Town in a 3-0 home win over Dronfield Town whilst Bottesford stay fourth after their 6-1 victory at Hall Road Rangers, Lee Ridley with two of their goals.

The league's top scorer, Ashley Flynn, netted four more as AFC Emley defeated visitors Westella VIP, Hull United remain sixth following Lewis Poucher's brace in a 2-0 triumph at Eccleshill United and a double from Oliver Fearon helped Penistone Church to a 3-1 win at bottom side Lincoln Moorlands Railway.

There was a hat-trick for Lewis Weaver as Teversal thrashed hosts Rossington Main, 5-0, and Will Ramsey struck twice in Selby Town's 3-0 win at Glasshoughton Welfare.

And, Winterton Rangers beat hosts Hallam, 4-2, whilst Knaresborough Town won 3-0 at home to Grimsby Borough.
