Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2021/22 #26

31st October, 2021

Toolstation NCEL Premier Division leaders Grimsby Borough suffered their second consecutive 4-1 away defeat and their lead at the summit has been cut slightly to three points after Saturday's matches.

The Wilderness Boys were beaten by Penistone Church who stay fifteenth but are now nine points clear of the bottom two with their victory, courtesy of two James Young penalties along with goals from Reece High and Brett Lovell whilst Adam Drury grabbed a consolation for the visitors.

The two sides chasing Borough at the top picked up a point apiece as they met each other at the Mitton Group Stadium, Sam Bradley's first-half opener for hosts Eccleshill United cancelled out in the 88th minute by Garforth Town's Sam Denton.

The draw means Eccleshill stay second whilst Garforth are five points off the top in third with Sherwood Colliery now breathing down their neck in fourth after their 2-0 win at Staveley Miners Welfare.

The match at Inkersall Road was goalless until the 85th minute when Lewis Belgrave made the breakthrough and the victory was confirmed in stoppage time by William Norcross.

Colliery go above Handsworth who drop to fifth following their 2-1 loss at Barton Town, Kane Reece putting them ahead on the half-hour before Scott Matthews and Thomas Waudby claimed the points for the Swans in the second period.

Joe Simpson and Luke Ayris netted for Bottesford Town in their 2-1 home win over Thackley that moves the Poachers up into sixth above Maltby Main who went down 1-0 at Goole AFC, Luke Williams with the 20th minute winner for the Vikings.

Hemsworth Miners Welfare move out of the basement with a 2-2 home draw with Emley AFC in a game they led twice through Andrew Higgins and Charles Shepered with Lennon O'Grady and then a Matthew Sykes penalty restoring parity.

Athersley Recreation return to the bottom of the table after their 5-0 loss to visitors Winterton Rangers, Daniel Walker's double added to by Josh Walker, Ryan Douglas and an uncredited own goal.

A 3-1 loss for Albion Sports sees the Lions fall into the bottom three, overtaken by Emley, Graham Hall scoring an equaliser at Knaresborough Town but the hosts prevailed with goals from Colin Heath, Bradley Walker and Mark Simpson.

The two in-form sides in Division One met with North Ferriby, unbeaten in fourteen league games, at home to leaders Hallam who were unbeaten in twelve and it proved to be a tight affair with only one goal settling the encounter.

Danny Buttle scored the winner for the hosting Villagers who are up to second in the table, Hallam drop to third, and the new leaders are Rossington Main who grabbed a dramatic victory at Swallownest to reach the summit for the first time this season.

Jake Squires had given the home side the lead in first half stoppage time before Myron Gibbons netted a 58th minute equaliser and, going into the final seconds, Conner Williamson popped up with the matchwinner in a 2-1 victory for Ben Hunter's side.

Brigg Town drop to fourth after a 2-1 loss at Harrogate Railway Athletic who jump up to fifth with their win, courtesy of an injury time Daniel Thirkell penalty after Elliot Holmes had cancelled out Scott Phillips' seventh minute opener for the Zebras.

Adam Baskerville's late equaliser secured a point for Armthorpe Welfare and they are now sixth following their 1-1 draw at Selby Town whilst Nostell Miners Welfare are seventh after their 3-2 victory at neighbours Worsbrough Bridge Athletic on Friday.

Liam Ormsby and Anees Younis gave them a 2-1 lead at the interval with Michael Jepps netting for the hosts, Younis' second gave them a two-goal advantage early in the second period and Conor Glavin's penalty brought the hosts back into the encounter late on.

The division's bottom two sides both suffered 2-1 defeats on their travels with Teversal going down at Glasshoughton Welfare despite taking the lead through Cameron Pinnick as Lewis Stephens and James Cusworth ensured a win for the hosts.

The Tevie Boys remain rooted to the bottom, four points behind Rainworth Miners Welfare who were beaten at Parkgate, Jack Bancroft and Frederick Tracey scoring for the Steelmen before a 46th minute goal for the Wrens from Morgan Boyle.

Dronfield Town leapfrogged visitors Shirebrook Town to sixteenth with a 2-0 victory, two quickfire first half goals from Callum Mawbey sealing the deal, whilst Ollerton Town were 4-0 home winners over local rivals Clipstone.

Callum Atkinson's early goal was added to in the last quarter-of-an-hour by a Joseph Bayne penalty and then the match was sealed with further strikes from Gavin King and Joe Lumley.

And, two second half goals from Reece Moody, one from the spot, made sure of a win for Hall Road Rangers at Retford FC after Richard Medcalf and Alex Knaggs had given them a 2-0 interval lead.
