Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2019/20 #42

16th January, 2020

The first midweek matches in the Toolstation NCEL in 2020 were disrupted by bad weather as only two of six scheduled fixtures were able to take place.

After a complete washout on Tuesday night, two games took place on Wednesday, one of which saw Premier Division table-toppers Penistone Church defeat last season's champions Worksop Town in the Quarter-Finals of the Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup.

Kieran Ryan put the Penguins ahead in the fourth minute against their visitors who now ply their trade in the Northern Premier League and Nathan Keightley doubled the advantage midway through the opening period.

Worksop, however, fought back with Connor Brunt halving the deficit before the interval and Ben Rhodes popping up to snatch a late equaliser to force a penalty shoot-out after a 2-2 draw.

And, it was Keightley who converted the deciding spot-kick, slotting the ball past the Worksop keeper as Penistone won 4-3 on penalties to move through to the final four.

Elsewhere, Maltby Main moved up four places to ninth in the Premier Division following a 3-0 victory at bottom side Athersley Recreation.

A 28th minute opener from Jonathan Hill gave the Miners a single-goal interval lead that was added to on the hour mark through Rory Coleman before a Jack Shepperd own goal three minutes later settled the tie.

The four games that were postponed due to waterlogged pitches were Goole AFC's County Cup trip to Pontefract Collieries, along with Premier Division matches Handsworth v Silsden and Liversedge v Yorkshire Amateur, on Tuesday whilst Worsbrough Bridge Athletic's home County Cup clash with Emley AFC on Wednesday was also called off.
