Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2020/21 #21

31st December, 2020

North Ferriby's Buildbase FA Vase adventure continued with a dramatic Third Round victory at home to Seaham Red Star on Tuesday night.

Things looked bleak for the Villagers when they trailed 2-0 by the interval to their Northern League opponents, Luke Sullivan's twentieth minute penalty added to by Andrew Johnson's strike just past the half hour mark.

But, Chris Bolder's man fought back excellently in the second period with Levi Tarbotton netting on the hour and Danny Buttle putting away his own spot kick on 72.

That led to a 2-2 draw and a penalty shoot-out that saw North Ferriby prevail in a 7-6 thriller and join Liversedge as the Toolstation NCEL's representatives in the last 32 next month.

Sedge, meanwhile, have moved up into third in the Premier Division after their 2-0 home win over Albion Sports, one of three league games played on Monday.

Oliver Fearon and Nicky Boshell both scored in the opening minutes of the second period to claim the win that moves them to within eight points of leaders Yorkshire Amateur with four games in hand.

Handsworth, meanwhile, are up to seventh after Leon Howarth, Juan Xavier, Ross Goodwin and Samuel Smith got on the scoresheet in a 4-1 win at Staveley Miners Welfare.

In Division One, a 5-0 home victory means Retford FC are up to fifth, a brace each for Matthew Robinson and Zach Casburn added to by Luke Abdy in a comfortable win over Worsbrough Bridge Athletic.

Tuesday night's two league games, Yorkshire Amateur's home clash with Penistone Church and Campion's trip to Emley AFC, were postponed due to snow.

And, the league is now suspended until at least 13th January, 2021, following the news that a number of our sides are now in areas with Tier 4 COVID-19 restrictions meaning 'non-elite' football is not allowed whilst the rapid rise in cases across our region is also a cause for concern.
