Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2017/18 #28

9th November, 2017

The spotlight fell mainly on the County Cups in midweek with 23 Toolstation NCEL sides trying to progress further in their respective competitions.

There were eight ties involving our clubs in the Second Round of the Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup with Staveley Miners Welfare just seconds away from a win at Evo-Stik League side Stocksbridge Park Steels.

Adam Baskerville and Tyla Bell had looked to have given them a 2-1 victory when their hosts struck a dramatic equaliser in stoppage time and it remained 2-2 through extra-time with the home side ultimately going through 4-1 in a penalty shoot-out.

There were two all-NCEL ties with Ross Duggan's hat-trick helping Maltby Main to a 4-1 victory at Nostell Miners Welfare, Alex Lill with the Premier Division side's other goal whilst Joshua Pitts scored for their Division One hosts.

Swallownest, meanwhile, pulled off an upset as they beat higher-ranked Parkgate, 3-0, Sam Foulds getting all three goals in Jordan Stocks' first match in charge of the NCEL newcomers.

Hallam, AFC Emley and Penistone Church all ensured they were not the victims of cup upsets as they progressed with victories.

Thomas Roebuck and Liam Osborne netted in Hallam's 2-1 win over Denaby United whilst Emley defeated visitors Hall Green United 3-1 with goals from Lewis Dickinson, Curtis Roberts and Jonny Bullivant.

And, there was a 5-1 home triumph over Houghton Main for Penistone, Brett Lovell's brace added to by Scott Whittington, James Young and Nathan Keightley.

Hemsworth Miners Welfare and Worsbrough Bridge Athletic, however, were knocked out of the competition, both 3-1 at home to Grimethorpe Sports and Shelley, respectively.

In the Second Round of the West Riding County Cup, there was huge joy for Selby Town as they beat National League North visitors Bradford Park Avenue 7-6 on penalties after the match had finished 1-1, Andrew Metcalfe with a late equaliser for the Robins.

Garforth Town, however, could not bridge a four division gap with National League side Guiseley as they went down 6-0 at the Supply Chain Network Community Stadium.

Eli Hey's second-half double helped Pontefract Collieries progress with a 4-1 home victory over league rivals Yorkshire Amateur, Michael Dunn and Jack Greenhough also netting for the Colls with Daniel Naidole scoring for their Division One visitors.

And, Campion edged through on spot kicks at Albion Sports, the Division One side beating their Premier Division hosts 5-3 in a shoot-out following a 1-1 draw that had seen Aidan Day level the scores after the Lions had taken the lead through Joshua Morley.

Jake Day struck four times as Bridlington Town beat AFC Walkington 6-0 in the Second Round of the East Riding Senior Cup, Joel Sutton getting two late on for the Seasiders to complete the rout.

East Yorkshire Carnegie and Hall Road Rangers join them in the next round following home wins, Jack Smith and Thomas Whiting netting for Carnegie in the final few minutes to claim a 2-0 victory over Beverley Town.

Rangers required extra-time after Reckitts levelled in stoppage time, Christopher Spinks getting the vital goal in the 115th minute for a 2-1 win.

Both Dronfield Town and Shirebrook Town exited the Derbyshire Senior Cup at the Second Round stage with defeats at Ilkeston Town and at home to New Mills, respectively.

Winterton Rangers put up a determined fight at last year's NCEL Premier Division champions Cleethorpes Town but, despite a Luke Anderson double, were beaten 3-2 at the Evo-Stik League side in the Quarter-Finals of the Lincolnshire Senior Trophy.

And, in the Second Round of the Notts Senior Cup, Ollerton Town triumphed 3-0 at Radcliffe Olympic, Christopher Hewitt striking twice with a Lewis Bingham goal in between to ensure the Division One side remained in the competition.

Meanwhile, there were two Division One matches with leaders Knaresborough Town extending their lead at the top to eight points with a 2-0 home defeat of Glasshoughton Welfare, Tom Hesketh and Blaine Hobson with the goals in the final twenty minutes.

And, Eccleshill United consolidated third spot with a 3-0 victory over visitors Rossington Main, Andrew Cooper's twelfth minute strike added to in the final moments by Sam Bradley and Matthew Mathers to put a five point gap between the Eagles and fourth placed Grimsby Borough.
