FC Bolsover's long search for their first points of the season finally came to an end whilst there was frustration for Winterton Rangers as their Buildbase FA Vase match was abandoned on another busy Saturday of Toolstation NCEL action.
Rangers were flying the flag for the league in the Third Round at Irlam but they will have to travel again to their Hallmark Security League opponents after their match ended prematurely at half-time due to floodlight failure with the game goalless.
In the Premier Division, Yorkshire Amateur remain nine points clear at the top even though they did not have a game as second-placed Penistone Church
fell to a 4-1 loss at Staveley Miners Welfare
Joe Pugh's penalty gave the Trojans a first-half lead before he added his second at the start of the second period and Tomas Poole regained their three-goal cushion by the hour mark.
Ryan Johnson pulled one back for Penistone but Robson Doolan ensured the hosts had the final say with five minutes remaining.
Staveley remain twelfth but now have a seven point gap over the teams below them as this win came four days after a 3-1 victory at Barton Town
on Tuesday, Tomas Poole, Joe Pugh and Matthew Parkin with the goals in the only NCEL game to go ahead in midweek.
A hat-trick from Joshua Garbutt helped Knaresborough Town
to a 6-0 win at next-to-bottom Harrogate Railway Athletic
, a Daniel Thirkell penalty with further strikes from Brad Walker and Robert Youhill claiming a comfortable win that moves them up into third.
A single-goal victory for Bottesford Town
over Barton Town
, Thomas Johnston with the 58th minute strike, lifts the Poachers up into fifth whilst Worksop Town
are now in sixth following their 3-0 home victory at the expense of Albion Sports
Steven Wankiewicz, Connor Brunt and a spot-kick from Matthew Sykes did the damage at the King of Soho Stadium in the second half.
Hemsworth Miners Welfare
tumble three places to seventh after they lost 1-0 at Maltby Main
, Danny Swales with the winner fourteen minutes from time to keep Main in eight spot ahead of Handsworth Parramore
who won 3-0 at Thackley
Ryan Carroll, Waide Fairhurst and Jed Phillips netted for the Amber Parras who jump to ninth and they are followed by Eccleshill United
who move into the top half of the table after their 6-0 victory at Liversedge
Aran Basi, Khurram Shazad and Charlie Flaherty had the Eagles three up by the interval and they had to wait until the 84th minute for a fourth, courtesy of an Adam Shaw penalty, before Shaw and Christopher Lever made the scoreline even more one-sided in stoppage time.
And, Goole AFC
stay in the basement after they were beaten 4-1 at home by Garforth Town
, Mark Simpson with two of the goals that see the Miners move up into thirteenth.
It was an unpredictable afternoon in Division One as none of the four top-six sides that were in action won, with leaders Campion
held to a 2-2 draw at home by Swallownest
Things seemed to be going to form when Leon Hurles-Brook and Laurence Sorhaindo put the hosts 2-0 up by the 42nd minute but Swallownest fought back through a first-half injury time opener from Joel Evans and then an equaliser from Jason Short late in the second period to take home a well-earned point.
Campion remain two points ahead of second-placed Grimsby Borough
who drew 0-0 at home with AFC Emley
and are now three in front of Selby Town
who went down 3-1 at Dronfield Town
Daniel Wood's double along with a goal from Arran Bovill gave the home side a win that keeps Dronfield eighth but now only seven points off the summit whilst Jordan Snodin netted for the Robins.
Worsbrough Bridge Athletic
stay sixth despite a heavy 4-1 home loss to the side just below them, Hallam
, Kieran Watson setting the Countrymen off on their way with a double in opening half-hour.
A Josh Walker hat-trick helped East Yorkshire Carnegie
to a 4-0 victory at Armthorpe Welfare
, Haydn Ward's late winner grabbed Parkgate
a 3-2 triumph at Ollerton Town
, and late goals from James Wroot and William Britton secured Skegness Town
a 2-0 victory at Harworth Colliery
That vital win for Skegness means they move out of the bottom three and are now five points clear of Harworth who sit in the relegation zone whilst Ollerton's defeat means they fall a place to just above the trapdoor.
But, the division's biggest story came courtesy of the bottom side FC Bolsover
who went into their home game with Glasshoughton Welfare
having lost all of their previous eighteen league matches.
The Langwith Road side finally got the points that a recent improvement in performances had deserved as they twice came from behind to claim a 3-2 victory.
Jack Warwick levelled on both occasions after Kyle Willis and Gracjan Klimczak had put Welfare ahead before a penalty from Brett Lucas secured Bolsover the win they desperately craved.
