Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2020/21 #16

5th November, 2020

Yorkshire Amateur lead the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division by eight points after a 5-0 win at Barton Town in the last round of matches before lockdown.

And, Campion stay top of Division One despite a midweek defeat in an eight goal thriller at home to Armthorpe Welfare.

The Ammers led 1-0 at the interval at the Easy Buy Stadium with Roy Fogarty making the breakthrough on 42 minutes and they took full control of the encounter, adding four more goals in the second period.

Casey Stewart doubled their advantage before Adam Priestley, Matthew Dempsey and Fernando Moke all netted in the final quarter of the game to make it a comfortable victory for the table toppers.

AFC Mansfield have moved up into fourth after a Ross Duggan double, taking his season's tally in all competitions to fifteen, secured the Bulls a 2-1 win at Handsworth, his strikes sandwiching a goal from Leon Howarth for the hosts who drop to eighth.

A 5-0 home victory for Grimsby Borough sees them climb to fifth, first half goals from Jack Debnam and Reece York added to after the break by Daniel Trott, Adam Drury and Jack Bradbury saw them claim an easy win at home to Goole AFC.

And, Eccleshill United cemented tenth spot with a 3-2 victory at Silsden AFC, Luke Aldrich's opener for the Eagles cancelled out by half-time by Shaun Airey before a quick double from Talent Ndlovu and Kelvin Bleau midway through the second period sealed the points for Eccleshill even though Mark Simpson grabbed a late second for the hosts.

In Division One, leaders Campion took the lead in the eighteenth minute through Sean Hunter at home to Armthorpe Welfare but the game quickly turned into one of catch up for the hosts as Luke Williams and Paul Sherburn gave the visitors an interval 2-1 lead.

James Arnold grabbed their third before Edward Tordoff brought Campion back into the game only for an Andrew McCreadie own goal that made it 4-2 to the visitors.

Aidan Kirby reduced the deficit to one goal once more on 83 but any final hope of an equaliser was quickly snuffed out by Bradley McFadden as Armthorpe took home the points with a 5-3 victory and they jump up into thirteenth.

Third-placed Brigg Town were held to a 1-1 home draw by Worsbrough Bridge Athletic, Alfie Usher's early deadlock breaker cancelled out by Ben Donoghue's strike for the visitors on 77 minutes, and the Zebras are now four points off the summit.

Luke Abdy struck twice late on to grab a dramatic 2-1 win for Retford FC that lifts them into sixth, after hosts Swallownest had taken a third minute lead through Alex Lill.

But, that was nothing in comparison to the comeback made by Hall Road Rangers who were 2-0 down at Dronfield Town going into the final five minutes, courtesy of a Mark Fereday brace.

Nathan Walker gave them hope and then grabbed his second and an equaliser in stoppage time before Richard Medcalf popped up with an even later winner for a 3-2 victory for Rangers who are now eighth.

Nathan Perks struck four as Glasshoughton Welfare romped to a 7-0 home win over East Hull whilst there were two goals for Amir Berchil in Nostell Miners Welfare's 4-0 defeat of visitors Parkgate.

Three matches, meanwhile, were called off due to COVID-19 precautions: Knaresborough Town's home game with Athersley Recreation in the Premier Division along with Skegness Town's trip to Emley AFC and Rossington Main at home to North Ferriby in Division One.

The NCEL now goes into a temporary shutdown in accordance with the UK Government's tighter national COVID-19 regulations, meaning that no matches can be played for at least the next four weeks.
