Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2022/23 #60

19th March, 2023

North Ferriby are now just one win away from lifting the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division trophy after their 3-0 victory at fourth-placed Penistone Church on Saturday.

The Villagers' sixth victory in a row came courtesy of an early strike by Danny East that was added to before the interval by Amir Berchil whose second on 76 minutes confirmed the spoils were going the away side's way.

There were varying fortunes for the two sides who can still mathematically catch Ferriby but Winterton Rangers are now fifteen points behind the leaders in second after their 1-1 draw at home with Golcar United.

Joseph Skarz snatched a late equaliser for the visitors after Martin Pembleton had given Rangers a twentieth minute breakthrough.

Emley AFC's seventh consecutive victory keeps them twenty points off the summit in third, Junayd Cassius-Gill, Joe Clegg, Alex Metcalfe and Edward Dry netting in a 4-2 win at relegated Yorkshire Amateur whose goals came late on from Alfie Wilkinson.

Ferriby will be crowned champions in midweek without kicking a ball if both Winterton and Emley lose their matches but a victory in any of their remaining three matches means they will take the title no matter what happens elsewhere.

Garforth Town and Hallam remain fifth and sixth, respectively, after victories with Garforth claiming a 3-0 success at Maltby Main, courtesy of goals from Nick Thompson, James Burgess and Sam Barker in the opening half-hour.

Kieren Watson and Brandon Bradbury scored as Hallam beat visitors Hemsworth Miners Welfare, Reece Kral with a consolation for the visitors who drop to ninth.

There were two goals for Thomas Waudby as Barton Town secured a 4-3 home victory over Thackley that moves the Swans up into seventh, leapfrogging Golcar who complete the top eight.

Two of the sides embroiled in the battle to avoid relegation met with Bottesford Town taking the honours in a 2-0 win at Goole AFC.

Jonathan Nyantou and Luke Ayris secured three vital points for the Poachers who jump out of the drop zone, replaced in the bottom two by their hosts.

Hass Gorji struck twice for Albion Sports in a 2-1 home win against Frickley Athletic whilst Luke Brooksbank scored both of Silsden AFC's goals in a 2-2 draw at neighbours Eccleshill United.

And, the day's biggest winners were Knaresborough Town, Ewan Gregson, George Thewlis, Benjamin Parkes, Cole Wildin and Dominic Creamer with the goals in a 5-0 victory over visitors Handsworth.

Campion made another step towards the Division One title as they won 4-1 at Shirebrook Town who remain just above the relegation zone.

Nicky Boshell and Patrick Sykes gave them a 2-0 interval lead that was halved in the 89th minute by Jake Squires before Sykes' second and an Aidan Kirby strike made the success more emphatic in injury time.

Campion are eight points clear of Harrogate Railway Athletic who are now second after their 5-0 defeat of visitors Ollerton Town, a Lewis Walters brace added to by Daniel McDaid, Jacob Robertson and Elliot Holmes.

The Rail, whose amazing unbeaten run is now at 25 games, climb above Rossington Main who needed an 85th minute equaliser from Ross Hannah to take a point in a 1-1 draw at Worsbrough Bridge Athletic.

Fourth-placed Wakefield AFC missed out on a chance to make their play-off position more secure as they were beaten 5-2 at home by Beverley Town with Joe McFadyen scoring a hat-trick for the away side.

Staveley Miners Welfare won 3-2 at home to Horbury Town in a battle between fifth and sixth, Samuel Kay with what proved to be the winner in the 75th minute after the visitors had twice led.

Retford FC remain four points behind Horbury after a 4-1 loss at Armthorpe Welfare, Jamie Austin with three of the goals for the hosts who keep their play-off ambitions alive in ninth.

Ashley Bell and Zackary Sangster struck to secure another three massive points for Glasshoughton Welfare as they continue their surge away from danger, a 2-1 home win over Nostell Miners Welfare lifting them to seven points clear of the relegation zone.

Basement side Athersley Recreation picked up a point in a 3-3 home draw with Selby Town, Ricky Berry with an 88th minute leveller for the Rec who are four points away from Shirebrook in seventeenth.

The other two teams in the bottom three saw their games abandoned in the second half as torrential rain caused their pitches to become waterlogged.

Parkgate were 3-2 up at home to Dronfield Town when their match was called off after 58 minutes whilst Swallownest were 4-1 down to play-off chasing visitors Brigg Town when proceedings were halted after 67 minutes.
