8th October, 2017
There was a full programme in the Toolstation NCEL as the leaders of both divisions enjoyed convincing wins on Non League Day on Saturday.
Pickering Town remain three points clear at the top of the Premier Division thanks to a 6-2 victory at Athersley Recreation, a Ryan Blott double added to by goals from Sam Denton, Lewis Taylor, Ged Dalton and Joseph McCormick whilst the hosts had Kyle Wordsorth and Lee Garside's names on their scoresheet.
The chasing pack, though, kept on the Pikes' coattails with the other sides in the top three also winning, free-scoring Pontefract Collieries staying in second as they made it 47 goals in their eleven matches so far with a 6-0 defeat of next-to-bottom hosts Barton Town.
Eli Hey scored twice after Kane Reece and Christopher Jackson had given the Colls a 2-0 half-time lead with Michael Dunn and Vaughan Redford also getting in on the action in the second period.
Maltby Main keep third spot, six points off the top, after a 4-1 win at Bottesford Town who drop to eighteenth - Steven McDonnell and Oliver Lawrence securing the victory in the second period after Alex Lill had given Main a ninth minute lead.
Handsworth Parramore are up into fourth after they raced into a 3-0 lead by the 32nd minute at home to Penistone Church, James Ashmore, Jason Yates and Adam Johnson netting before the visitor launched a fightback through Jordan Coduri and Kieran Ryan in the last quarter-of-an-hour but the Amber Parras held on for a 3-2 victory.
They are now above their tenants Worksop Town by a point, the Tigers falling to fifth as they needed an injury-time equaliser from Rhys Davies to snatch a 1-1 draw at Nottinghamshire neighbours Rainworth Miners Welfare, Tomas Poole opening the scoring for the Wrens on 63 minutes.
Second-half goals from Bradley Dockerty, Lloyd Henderson and Richard Collier earned Hemsworth Miners Welfare a 3-0 home win over Harrogate Railway Athletic and they are now up to sixth whilst the Rail stay in twentieth on a disappointing day for the basement sides where the bottom seven teams were all beaten.
Clipstone and Parkgate joined Barton, Harrogate Railway, Bottesford, Penistone and Athersley in tasting defeat although Clipstone did almost stage an amazing comeback at Hall Road Rangers who led 3-0 at half-time thanks to Daniel Norton and a Daniel Chambers brace.
Timothy Gregory pulled one back on 53 for the Cobras and a Matthew Hubbard strike gave them hope late on but Rangers ran out 3-2 winners.
Parkgate, meanwhile, went down 2-1 at home to Garforth Town, Callum Ward and Mark Simpson scoring for the visitors before Bradley Kerr halved the deficit on 70 minutes.
The only movement in the bottom seven saw Penistone climb one place to seventeenth above Bottesford on goal difference.
There was one hat-trick in the Premier Division and it came at the Forest Town Stadium where Oliver Fearon joined the league's top scorer, Blott, on fifteen goals with three of AFC Mansfield's goals in a 4-0 home victory over Albion Sports.
Tyla Bell got the only goal of the game as Staveley Miners Welfare won 1-0 at Thackley and there was a 1-1 draw between Bridlington Town and Liversedge.
Colin Heath was the hat-trick hero in Division One as leaders Knaresborough Town made it 38 points from just fourteen games so far with a 4-0 home win over FC Bolsover after Brad Walker had given them a twelfth minute lead.
The gap to second-placed Yorkshire Amateur remains eight points as Ashley Flynn made it sixteen for the season and T'nique Fishley also scored as the Ammers struck twice in the last five minutes to beat visitors Swallownest, 2-0.
Campion move up to third after Lee Bradshaw, Jason Carney and Thomas Robinson struck in a 3-0 win at Nostell Miners Welfare who drop to next-to-bottom, replacing Retford United who claimed a priceless 1-0 home victory over Rossington Main.
Bradley Kilner was the matchwinner for the Badgers whilst Worsbrough Bridge Athletic also moved above Nostell with a 4-2 win at Armthorpe Welfare, Ben Grech-Brooksbank getting two of their goals.
Brigg Town remain at the foot of the table after a 5-1 loss at Hallam, the home side were 4-0 up by the interval through a Mitchell Dunn double and strikes from Thomas Roebuck and Alex Brown.
At the other end of the standings, Grimsby Borough fall to fourth after they went down 2-1 at Shirebrook Town, Joshu Venney with their goal sandwiching ones from Samuel Dockwray and Kieran Watson for the hosts, all in the opening 26 minutes.
