Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2018/19 #41

27th January, 2019

Penistone Church top the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division table for the first time after a last-gasp victory at Albion Sports on Saturday catapulted them to the summit.

Church ended Yorkshire Amateur's 105-day run as leaders as Kieran Ryan netted the only goal of the game at Throstle Nest in the 88th minute to become the eighth different side to take first place this season.

The Ammers never recovered in their game from a quickfire start for hosts Hemsworth Miners Welfare, Bradley Dockerty's opener added to by a Graham McLachlan own-goal had the home side 2-0 up by the sixth minute.

Sam Jones added a third before the break, their lead was increased further with Dockerty's second with a quarter-of-an-hour remaining and Harrison Blakey claimed an 84th minute consolation for the visitors in a 4-1 victory for the Wells who move up into third spot.

Worksop Town and Maltby Main took advantage of a home defeat for Bridlington Town to move above the Seasiders into fourth and fifth, respectively.

A Matthew Sykes hat-trick, added to by a penalty for Kyle Jordan and a goal from Steven McDonnell, saw Worksop defeat visitors Thackley 5-2 and a brace for Jordan Turner helped Maltby beat Athersley Recreation 4-1 at Muglet Lane.

Bridlington went down to a last-minute winner from Robson Doolan as they lost 2-1 at home to Staveley Miners Welfare, a victory that sees the Inkersall Road side jump into the top half of the Premier Division.

Knaresborough Town drop to seventh as they were held to a 1-1 draw by visitors Garforth Town, the away side taking the lead through Sean Hunter on 41 before Nicholas Black had restored parity by the hour mark.

A Waide Fairhurst double, including an injury-time penalty, saw Handsworth Parramore to a 3-1 victory at basement hosts Goole AFC and the Amber Parras are up to eighth, leapfrogging Bottesford Town who were beaten 3-2 at home by Liversedge.

Kevy Tarangadzo, Rhys Davies and Emile Sinclair had given Sedge an unassailable advantage by the 26th minute that two goals from Jack McMenemy could not overturn.

And, Harrogate Railway Athletic's first victory since August has moved them out of the bottom two with Lewis Riley grabbing a dramatic late winner to beat visitors Barton Town 3-2 and go above Hall Road Rangers who were without a game.

The top half of Division One remains unchanged after Saturday's matches but the top two have pulled away from the rest with victories.

Campion stay at the summit, a position they have held since late November, after a 4-2 win at Parkgate, Marcus Day's double sandwiched by an opener from Leon Hurles-Brook and Omar Habeeb's late strike whilst Bruno Holden and Freddie Russell netted towards the end of each half for the Steelmen.

Grimsby Borough stay three points off the top in second after their 2-0 home victory over Rossington Main, Marc Cooper's half-hour deadlock breaker was followed by their second from Daniel Trott in the 85th minute.

Third-placed Nostell Miners Welfare lost a little ground as they drew 1-1 at Dronfield Town, Thomas Almond rescuing them a point after Daniel Wood's had opened the scoring for the hosts towards the end of the first period.

There were away victories for Worsbrough Bridge Athletic and Hallam to keep themselves in fifth and sixth, respectively, Jack Mawson's 46th minute goal proving decisive for Athletic at East Yorkshire Carnegie after the first half ended at 2-2.

Hallam came from behind as Kieran Watson equalised at his former club and a Sam Smith penalty claimed a 2-1 victory at Shirebrook Town.

Selby Town stay in seventh despite going down 1-0 at Glasshoughton Welfare, Nathan Perks with the decisive goal, but the Robins are now only above eighth-placed Dronfield on goal difference.

Oliver Grady grabbed the only goal of the game to give Swallownest a 1-0 home victory over Skegness Town, a win that keeps them in tenth whilst Skegness have dropped a place to fifteenth having been overtaken by AFC Emley who won 2-0 at Ollerton Town.

Michael Starkey and Andrew Horbury scored the goals for the Pewits either side of the halfway point of the second period at the FastFrame.

And, in a game featuring two sides desperate to avoid the drop, Armthorpe Welfare won 2-1 at Harworth Colliery to move six points clear of their hosts who stay in the relegation zone.

Mason Barlow gave Harworth a fourth-minute lead that held until Liam Radford's leveller on 71 and then Craig Aspinall claimed what could turn out to be a vital victory with a winner in stoppage time.

Meanwhile, two county cup games were played in midweek with Ollerton Town progressing to the fifth round of the Notts Senior Cup with a 2-1 win over East Midlands Counties League visitors Radford on Tuesday.

Lewis Bingham and Lewis Price netted for them in the opening sixteen minutes and, although their opponents halved the deficit before half-time, it was the NCEL Division One side who booked their place in the last eight.

And, Selby Town are out of the West Riding County Cup after a 5-3 loss to National League side FC Halifax Town the previous night.

The Robins rallied in the second half after going in at the interval 4-1 down as Gary Collier and Charlie Clamp threatened a mini comeback.

But, even though Halifax had two players sent off, the five division difference between the two teams ultimately proved decisive.
