Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2019/20 #34

8th December, 2019

There was a full programme of Premier Division matches for the first time since the beginning of October whilst eight matches went ahead in Division One on a busy Saturday afternoon of Toolstation NCEL football.

Leaders Penistone Church remain four points clear at the top of the Premier Division table despite being held to a goalless draw at home to Handsworth as Hemsworth Miners Welfare, who started the day in second spot, were beaten 1-0 at home by Bridlington Town.

Chris Adams netted the only goal of the game after six minutes in a victory that moves the Seasiders up to fifth whilst their hosts drop to fourth, overtaken by Grimsby Borough and Staveley Miners Welfare who both picked up wins.

Joshua Sunter's 36th minute strike was enough for Borough as they defeated struggling AFC Mansfield 1-0 and a Michael Burke hat-trick helped Staveley to a 4-2 victory at Goole AFC.

Matthew Parkin had opened the scoring for the Trojans whilst Devonte Newman-Morton and Jordan Windass got on the scoresheet for the hosts.

A 3-3 draw at basement side Athersley Recreation sees Liversedge drop below Bridlington into sixth, Jack Shepperd's 81st minute equaliser for the home side securing only their fifth point of the campaign so far.

The Rec had led twice through a Kane Swinburn double with Billy Mole and Tom Jackson levelling for Sedge before Oliver Fearon put the visitors ahead for the first time on 73 but the honours were ultimately shared.

Garforth Town stay seventh following a 3-1 loss at Barton Town, Mark Simpson getting their consolation after Adam Milson, Marc Cooper and Waide Fairhurst netted for the Swans in the opening 38 minutes.

Matthew Sykes put Yorkshire Amateur ahead at Thackley but they were pegged back by an 81st minute equaliser from Jack Normanton for a point apiece that keeps the Ammers in eighth and Thackley fall to eleventh, leapfrogged by the victorious Maltby Main and Silsden.

Rory Coleman sealed the points for Maltby in a single-goal win at home to Knaresborough Town and Silsden beat hosts Bottesford Town 3-1, courtesy of a Liam Hudson opener and a Laurence Surhaindo double with Jack Bowskin scoring for the Poachers to make it 2-1 at the start of the second period.

And, Eccleshill United were 3-0 home winners over Albion Sports with all of the goals coming in the opening half-hour, Eli Hey, Kesiolu Omolokun and Nicky Boshell's penalty securing the points.

An intriguing match in Division One that saw leaders Skegness Town set to travel to bottom side East Hull was postponed, the only game to fall victim to a waterlogged pitch.

That allowed the chasing pack to close the gap a little with Winterton Rangers up to second, four points off the summit, Luke Anderson's 52nd minute strike ensuring a 1-0 home win over Worsbrough Bridge Athletic.

North Ferriby thumped hosts Selby Town 5-0 to climb into third with two goals each from Tom Corner and James Piercy whilst Danny Emmerton converted a spot-kick.

There were also wins for Armthorpe Welfare and Glasshoughton Welfare who leap up to fifth and sixth, respectively.

For the second successive weekend, Armthorpe were 2-1 victors thanks to an injury-time winner, this time coming from Adam Baskerville after Ryan Poskitt had cancelled out Richard Collier's goal for visitors Nostell Miners Welfare.

Glasshoughton were 2-0 home winners over Ollerton Town, Franisco Matos and Nathan Perks with the goals in the second half.

Hall Road Rangers have moved out of the bottom two following their 1-1 home draw with Brigg Town but Richard Medcalf's strike had seemingly given them all three points before Joe Smithson grabbed a vital equaliser in injury-time for the Zebras.

Rangers go above Harrogate Railway Athletic who drop into the danger zone after their 3-1 loss at Swallownest, Kieran Greenaway with a last-gasp goal for the Rail after their hosts had sealed the victory through Matthew Morton, Oliver Grady and James Dawes.

Elsewhere, Hallam were 3-1 winners at Dronfield Town, coming from behind before Micah Bishop sealed the three points with thirteen minutes remaining.

And, Niall Doran and Darryl Winters pounced in the second half to claim a 2-0 home win for Rossington Main over Parkgate.
