Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2023/24 #21

8th October, 2023

Two goals each for Jake Maltby and Kayle Price helped Silsden AFC to 5-2 home win over Maltby Main on Saturday to increase their advantage at the top of the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division to three points.

The Cobbydalers went into the weekend's action back at the summit following a points deduction for previous leaders Albion Sports and further cemented top spot with a victory that also included a Luke Brooksbank strike.

Malachi-Ethan Bailey and Ryan Ellison scored consolations for Maltby in the last twenty minutes but the visitors drop into the bottom two following their defeat.

Thackley are up to second after Nathan Woodward's injury time winner secured them the points in a 2-1 victory at Handsworth after Daniel Claridge's opener for the Dennyboys had been cancelled out by Henry Carne for the hosts who are now fifth.

Albion Sports drop to third but they rescued a point deep in stoppage time as Owen Murphy equalised in their 1-1 draw at seventh-placed Rossington Main in dramatic fashion.

Campion have fallen to fourth after slumping to a 5-0 loss at Emley AFC, James Walshaw with a hat-trick for the Pewits after Nathan Curtis and Ruben Jerome had given the home side a two goal cushion by the interval.

There was a double for Alex Ingham in Knaresborough Town's 4-1 victory at bottom side Bottesford Town, Benjamin Parkes and Sam Cook also netting for the visitors who climb to sixth whilst Reece Moody struck for the hosts.

Garforth Town strolled to a 7-0 win at Pickering Town with two each for Nash Connolly and Jason Davis whilst Sam Barker, Rinor Ejupi and Lee Turner also got on the scoresheet for the Miners who move up to eighth.

A 2-2 home draw with Golcar United has lifted Goole AFC out of the bottom two, Callum Petch and Ben Gelder scoring for the Vikings whilst George Doyle got both of the away side's goals, the second coming in stoppage time to grab a share of the spoils.

Darwin King broke the deadlock early for Eccleshill United in a 1-1 draw at Barton Town, Thomas Waudby ensuring a point apiece with an equaliser from the penalty spot midway through the second period.

Meanwhile, Tadcaster Albion's home clash with Hallam was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at the So-Trak Ltd Stadium.

Wombwell Town's dominance at the top of Division One continues after their 3-1 home victory over Louth Town, Harley Wilson, Bradley Kerr and Brodie Cooper with the goals that mean they are five points clear at the summit.

Beverley Town are now their nearest rivals, moving up to second, following a 6-0 win at Ollerton Town with two each for Andrew Norfolk and Joe McFadyen amongst the visitors' tally.

They leapfrog Nostell who fell to a 7-0 defeat at Parkgate who climb to fourth with Jamie Austin netting four for the Steelmen after Silas Valladolid-Collins' quickfire double early in the match.

Lewis Macaskill scored a late equaliser for Retford United as they drew 2-2 at Shirebrook Town, the visiting Badgers dropping to fifth in the table whilst their hosts, whose goals came from Kieren Watson, fall to seventh.

In between them in sixth are Wakefield AFC who, courtesy of an injury time winner by Callum Charlton, prevailed 2-1 at Worsbrough Bridge Athletic.

Harrogate Railway Athletic stay eighth despite a 4-3 loss at Brigg Town, a game in which the Rail led 2-1 until the 72nd minute when Martin Pembleton's second of the afternoon drew the sides level.

Brett Agnew and Scott Hutchinson scored late on to give the Zebras a 4-2 lead before Henry Gardner reduced the deficit to one goal with a late penalty.

At the foot of the table, Swallownest moved out of the basement with a hard-fought goalless draw at home to tenth placed Staveley Miners Welfare.

Armthorpe Welfare now prop up the rest following their 3-1 loss at Retford FC, Aaron Sennett-Neilson, Liam Frost and Jack Johnson with the home side's goals as they move up to ninth.

Kyle Batchelor struck a hat-trick for Athersley Recreation but they could only claim a point as late goals from Samuel Bebbington and Callum Mawbey ensured it finished 3-3 with visitors Dronfield Town.

James Cusworth's goals, however, did yield a victory for Horbury Town as he monopolised the scoresheet in their 3-2 win at Clay Cross Town.

And, Jonas Badibalowa and William Ramos pounced in the last ten minutes to claim a 2-0 win for Yorkshire Amateur at Glasshoughton Welfare to lift the Ammers eight points clear of the bottom three.
