Only two Toolstation NCEL matches survived torrential rain to go ahead over the weekend with huge credit going to everyone at Maltby Main and Penistone Church who made sure there was some action despite horrendous conditions.
A continuous downpour from Friday morning all the way through to Saturday afternoon wiped out the rest of the fixtures in the Premier Division whilst all ten games in Division One also fell foul to the weather, starting with Nostell Miners Welfare
's home clash with Worsbrough Bridge Athletic
on Friday night.
Penistone were rewarded for their endeavours as a 3-0 home win over basement side Athersley Recreation
moved them up to second spot, closing the gap on leaders Staveley Miners Welfare to three points.
Ashley Ellis opened the scoring in first half stoppage time before two goals in quick succession from Jordan Coduri and Shaun Mundy midway through the second period ensured the victory for Ian Richards' side.
Maltby, however, found themselves a goal down in the opening minute as Wayne Graves netted for Bottesford Town
and then two late penalties from Jack McMenemy meant the away side took away the points in a 3-0 victory.
The win was much needed for the Poachers who move up three places to sixteenth whilst Main stay in thirteenth spot.
