Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2017/18 #10

7th September, 2017

Liversedge were unable to become the fifth Toolstation NCEL side to reach the Second Qualifying Round of this year's Emirates FA Cup as they were beaten in their replay in midweek.

Having held Sunderland RCA to a goalless draw in the North East on Saturday, there was disappointment as they went down 4-0 at home on Tuesday with two of the goals coming in the final ten minutes.

The top four in the Premier Division stays as you were with three of the sides enjoying victories although leaders Pontefract Collieries left it late to take all three points from bottom side Clipstone.

The game was level at 2-2 going into the final fifteen minutes whereupon Kane Reece got his second of the evening for the Colls and a quickfire double from Eli Hey completed his hat-trick to take the victory and deny their hosts their first point of the season.

Pontefract remain a point ahead of Hemsworth Miners Welfare who won 1-0 at Albion Sports, Jack Steers getting the vital goal fifteen minutes from time.

The gap to third-placed Maltby Main has grown to three points after the Miners drew 1-1 at Garforth Town, Steven McDonnell with a 72nd minute equaliser for the visitors after Callum Ward's opener midway through the first period.

AFC Mansfield remain fourth but are now just a point behind Main after Oliver Fearon's tenth goal of the season secured a 1-0 victory for the Bulls at Hall Road Rangers.

There was an eight goal thriller at the newly-named The King of Soho Stadium where Worksop Town won 5-3 over visitors Harrogate Railway Athletic after the scores had been level at 1-1 at half-time.

Alec Denton and Micah Bishop each struck twice for the Tigers whilst Bradley Swain and Jason Price netted for the visitors in front of a crowd of 369.

Worksop go above their landlords Handsworth Parramore into fifth after the Ambers Parras drew 1-1 at Rainworth Miners Welfare, Robert Ludlam's late equaliser for the Wrens sharing the spoils after Handsworth had taken a 24th minute lead through Jonathan Froggatt.

Pickering Town, Bridlington Town and Thackley complete the top nine after all three picked up maximum points.

Ged Dalton, Ryan Blott and Joseph McCormick helped claim a 3-2 win for the Pikes at home to Penistone Church, Jake Day's injury time winner snatched a 1-0 victory for Bridlington at Athersley Recreation and a Joseph Hughes hat-trick - also taking his tally to ten - secured a 4-0 home defeat of Bottesford Town by Thackley.

And, in the battle of two of the three basement sides, it was hosts Parkgate who prevailed, 3-1 over Barton Town with Adam Clayton and Daniel Harris getting the winning goals in the last quarter-of-an-hour and the Steelmen move up to eighteenth.

In Division One, Yorkshire Amateur kept up the chase with leaders Knaresborough Town as a 4-0 win at Glasshoughton Welfare moved them to within a point of the summit, Daniel Naidole with two of the Ammers goals whilst Daniel Maw and Fernando Moke also found the net.

Daniel Cunningham scored a hat-trick in Campion's 5-3 victory at Winterton Rangers that opens up a five point gap between the top three and their nearest rivals.

Selby Town leap up into fourth after a 5-3 win of their own at FC Bolsover, Joseph Dale with two of the goals as the Robins stormed into a 4-1 half-time lead before the hosts rallied and Brett Lucas calmed the visitors' nerves with their fifth on 87 minutes.

They go above Ollerton Town and East Yorkshire Carnegie who drew 2-2 at Walesby Lane with the visitors coming from 2-0 down with a minute of normal time to go to snatch a point, Carnegie's Michaell O'Connell and Thomas Whiting turning the game on its head.

Rossington Main drop to seventh after a 1-1 home draw with Grimsby Borough who move up to ninth, Andrew McCreadie rescuing a point in stoppage time to cancel out Daniel Trott's early opener for the away side.

A 3-1 home loss to AFC Emley sees Shirebrook Town fall to eighth, Lewis Dickinson's double helping Emley to a much needed victory that moves them off the bottom of the table.

They are replaced in the basement by Retford United who went down 3-2 at home to Armthorpe Welfare, Liam Radford with two of the visitors' goals, and they are joined in the bottom two by Brigg Town who lost 4-1 to visitors Worsbrough Bridge Athletic, Liam Wilkin netting a hat-trick as the away side surge up to sixteenth.

And, there were 1-0 home victories for Hallam and Swallownest, Alex Brown and Aaron Nicolson scoring respectively against Nostell Miners Welfare and Dronfield Town.
