Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2021/22 #4

15th August, 2021

All of the Toolstation NCEL send our best wishes to match official Andrew Jarvis who is recovering after taking ill during Saturday's Division One match between Rainworth Miners Welfare and Hallam.

The game was due to resume for its second half when he required emergency medical treatment which he received thanks to the speedy reaction of a number of people, especially Hallam physio Shannon Brooks, Rainworth assistant boss Richard Smith and player Kieron Hinchley.

The use of an on-site defribillator once again demonstrated the importance of having one of these pieces of life-saving equipment within every football ground.

Andrew was airlifted to hospital and it was reported on Sunday morning that he was awake and stable - we wish him all the best in his recovery.

In the Premier Division, nine matches were played with Staveley Miners Welfare's home match with Emley AFC postponed on Friday due to COVID-19.

Garforth Town, Grimsby Borough and AFC Mansfield top the early table, each with seven points from their opening three matches, after picking up wins.

Garforth trailed 2-0 at Albion Sports at the interval, Robbie Fox's double strike putting the Lions in front, but Jamie Barkway and Charlie Marshall restored parity within ten minutes of the restart before a late Jed Zanos strike and Sam Barker penalty saw the visitors claim a 4-2 victory.

Lewis Collins, Adam Drury and Richie Burdett netted for Borough as they prevailed 3-1 at Thackley, Ben Grech-Brooksbank's penalty for the hosts having been a 21st minute equaliser.

And, Kian Sketchley got both of AFC Mansfield's goals in a 2-0 defeat of hosts Athersley Recreation.

Sherwood Colliery and Knaresborough Town complete the top five having claimed a maximum six points from their two games played so far.

Colliery went behind to a Kieran Ryan opener for visitors Penistone Church but a Ryan Ingram penalty levelled matters before the break and then Liam Theakstone and William Norcross ensured a 3-1 win in the second period.

Sean Hunter bagged a hat-trick, with two from the penalty spot, as Knaresborough won 4-0 at home to Hemsworth Miners Welfare with Jack Carr completing the scoring in the 86th minute.

Goole AFC came away from Barton Town with all three points in a 3-2 victory at Barton Town despite playing almost all of the second half with nine men.

Carl Stewart's 86th minute penalty gave them the win after a spot kick moments earlier from Benjamin Hinchliffe had seemingly shared the spoils in an eventful match.

There were two goals for Reagan Waud as Maltby Main came away from Eccleshill United with a 4-0 win whilst Joe Jagger and James Oliver were on the scoresheet for Silsden AFC and Handsworth in their 1-0 victories at Bottesford Town and at home to Winterton Rangers, respectively.

Nostell Miners Welfare, Parkgate and Selby Town are making the early running in Division One with Nostell top of the pile on goal difference following their 4-1 home defeat of Clipstone.

Declan Sorrell had put the away side ahead but a Nathan Perks hat-trick and one from Anees Younis saw the hosts take a comfortable victory.

Parkgate survived a late comeback from hosts Swallownest to win 3-2, Sam Ackroyd, James Stafford and Patrick Muirhead with their goals before Callum Greaves and Jason Short struck for the home side in the last ten minutes.

And, a Harry Clapham hat-trick helped Selby to a 4-3 win at Brigg Town, Flynn McNaughton with their fourth before Scott Phillips and Alfie Usher reduced the deficit to one as the game moved towards stoppage time.

Daniel Youel, Aaron Gray, Adam Hayton and Lewis Stephens secured a 4-0 victory for Glasshoughton Welfare on their trip to FC Humber United whilst Adam Baskerville netted in the 77th minute as Armthorpe Welfare won 1-0 at Shirebrook Town.

Hall Road Rangers and Retford FC both claimed 3-1 home wins, Luke Wheeldon scoring twice for Rangers at the expense of Ollerton Town, and late goals for Luke Abdy and Yaya Dembele nabbed the victory for Retford over Worsbrough Bridge Athletic.

And, there were two 1-1 draws as Harrogate Railway Athletic came from behind to make it a point apiece with visitors Dronfield Town whilst Sam Kitchen's last-gasp equaliser rescued Rossington Main at home to North Ferriby who had taken the lead early on through Daniel East.
