Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2017/18 #29

12th November, 2017

Pontefract Collieries and Worksop Town are through to Monday's draw for the Third Round of this season's Buildbase FA Vase as they both won away from home on Saturday.

The Colls are through to that stage for the first time in their history after a 4-2 extra time victory at fellow Toolstation NCEL Premier Division side Hall Road Rangers.

The hosts started the stronger with Joshua Batty and Christopher Spinks putting them two ahead by the interval but Kane Reece brought Pontefract back into the game on 69 minutes and a dramatic injury time equaliser from Vaughan Redford took the game into another half hour.

And, it was Redford who proved to be the hero as he netted twice more to send his side into the last 64.

They are joined there by Worksop who won 1-0 at Ebac Northern League Division One side Dunston UTS, Alec Denton with the goal in the early moments of the second period for the Tigers.

Knaresborough Town bowed out, however, despite a spirited performance at North Shields, Blaine Hobson scoring in a 2-1 defeat whilst AFC Mansfield's first game in the competition this season ended in disappointment with a 2-0 loss at Hinckley.

In the Premier Division, bottom side Clipstone gave table-topping visitors Handsworth Parramore a scare as the Cobras went ahead twice through Timother Gregory and Gareth Curtis but they were pegged back twice by Jonathan Froggatt and Joseph Thornton before Alex Rippon grabbed an 82nd minute winner to keep the Amber Parras at the summit with a 3-2 victory.

Joe Danby's strike fifteen minutes from time has moved Pickering Town up to second, three points off the top, with a 2-1 home victory over Barton Town after Ryan Blott's opener had been cancelled out through Lewis Clarkson for the Swans.

Maltby Main climb into fourth following their 3-1 win over visitors Liversedge, Ryan Carroll and Ross Duggan putting them 2-0 up before Bradley Riley's penalty on 81 minutes halved the deficit but Dean Conway made sure of the points in stoppage time.

And, Hemsworth Miners Welfare are up into sixth after they beat hosts Thackley by the same scoreline, Nash Connolly, Richard Collier and a James Rothel own goal doing the damage whilst James Ngoe got a last gasp consolation for the hosts.

Next-to-bottom Harrogate Railway Athletic picked up their third win of the season as Luke Stewart netted in the 33rd minute to earn a 1-0 defeat of Albion Sports at Throstle Nest whilst a Lee Garside brace helped Athersley Recreation to a 2-1 home win over Parkgate as eighteenth took on nineteenth at Sheerien Park.

Declan Bacon struck twice for Bottesford Town as they beat Staveley Miners Welfare 4-1 at Inkersall Road to go up to twelfth, a place behind Garforth Town who won 2-1 at home to Bridlington Town, courtesy of goals from Lee Turner and Mark Simpson.

With leaders Knaresborough in Vase action, the other top four sides in Division One took full advantage, winning their games to close the gap a little.

Second-placed Yorkshire Amateur were 3-1 victors at FC Bolsover, Harrison Blakey, Daniel Naidole and Luke Sharry with the goals that move them to within five points of the summit and keep them ahead of Eccleshill United who stay third despite a 3-0 win at Retford United.

Antony Brown struck twice for the Eagles whilst Levi Maturine also got on the scoresheet as they maintain a five point gap with Grimsby Borough who are fourth, Jack Debnam, Jack Bradbury and Daniel Trott with the goals in their 3-2 win at East Yorkshire Carnegie.

Selby Town and Campion were also winners and they are now fifth and sixth, respectively, Liam Flanagan's double helping Selby to a 4-0 win at Swallownest whilst Lee Bradshaw also scored two as Campion comfortably won 6-0 at home to Worsbrough Bridge Athletic.

They both go above Shirebrook Town who drop to seventh after a 2-1 loss at neighbours Ollerton Town, Sam Stretton breaking the deadlock for the hosts from the penalty spot on 58 minutes before Ashley Shannon added their second and then Kieran Watson scored his 27th of the campaign, this one also from twelve yards, in injury time for the visitors.

Scorer of the day was Luke Anderson who netted four times in Winterton Rangers' 6-0 home defeat of Armthorpe Welfare and his side move up to eighth above Hallam who were beaten 4-1 by away side Dronfield Town.

Mark Fereday got two of the visitors' goals as they took the points from the match with the biggest crowd of the afternoon, 384 watching the game at Sandygate.

New signings D'Arcy Pugh and Khurram Shazad scored for Nostell Miners Welfare as they picked up a vital 2-1 win at Brigg Town in the bottom three clash.

And, two early goals from Leon Cusworth and Andrew McCreadie earned Rossington Main a 2-0 home victory over AFC Emley to climb above their opponents into tenth spot.
