Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2023/24 #30

9th November, 2023

Two goals from Keegan Townrow helped Frickley Athletic book their place in the Third Round of this season's JCP Construction League Cup with a victory at Toolstation NCEL Premier Division rivals Goole AFC in midweek.

Lloyd Smith also scored and Alhassane Keita converted a penalty in their 4-2 victory with Matthew Langley and Szymon Czubik netting for the hosting Vikings.

Joining Frickley at the next stage are Handsworth and Campion who won their ties on Wednesday night.

Handsworth went behind to a Darwin King goal at home to Eccleshill United but an Alfie Dodsworth double at the start of the second period put them 2-1 up before Talent Ndlovu's 84th minute equaliser threatened a penalty shoot-out.

However, Leon Howarth popped up to make it a 3-2 victory for the Ambers.

Campion were level 1-1 at Penistone Church going into the final five minutes, Antony Brown putting Church ahead before Patrick Sykes restored parity.

Sykes' second, though, on 86 gave the visitors the lead and Marcus Day made sure of a 3-1 win with a goal in stoppage time.

Elsewhere, an injury time winner has moved Emley AFC to the top of the Premier Division after their 1-0 victory at bottom side Bottesford Town, Iyrwah Gooden with the vital goal that saw the Pewits leapfrog Campion to the summit.

Tadcaster Albion are up to fifteenth following a 3-1 home win over Silsden AFC, Conor Qualter and Oliver Norman putting the Brewers 2-0 up before Ellis Hudson halved the deficit in first half stoppage time and Junayd Cassius-Gill scored the hosts' third on the hour mark.

On Wednesday, Albion Sports missed out on a chance to replace Emley at the summit as two injury time goals from Ashley Flynn for Hallam meant the Lions were beaten 3-2 and are third whilst Hallam climb to ninth.

Lewis Waddington and Robbie Fox had twice put the hosts in front with Iren Wilson netting the first equaliser before the late double turned the game completely to the away side's favour.

In Division One, a Jamie Austin hat-trick added to by one goal from Billy Wood, saw Parkgate claim a 4-0 win at home against Retford FC to move the Steelmen up to fifth in the table.

Oliver Kendall, Alex Aldrich and Bailey Wright were the scorers for Louth Town as they defeated hosts Athersley Recreation 3-1, Khalid Suleiman with the Rec's goal.

And Glasshoughton Welfare won 4-0 at next-to-bottom Ollerton Town, Jonas Ndombasi with a double after early goals from Ashley Bell and Aaron Gray had put Welfare on the way to victory.

In county cup action, Shirebrook Town and Nostell Miners Welfare both went through 5-4 on penalties after a 2-2 draw in their respective ties.

Joshua Devereux's late leveller kept Shirebrook's hopes alive at home to South Normanton Athletic in the Second Round of the Derbyshire Senior Cup after the visitors had taken the lead following an opening goal for the hosts from Kiyani Clayton.

And, it was an identical scoring pattern for Nostell in the Second Round of their Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup tie as they scored first at Harworth Colliery through Carl Robinson before the home side took a 2-1 lead and Liam Ormsby grabbed a 71st minute equaliser for Welfare.

At the same stage in the East Riding Senior Cup, Beverley Town defeated St Mary's 4-2 with Scott Phillips, Oliver Baldwin and Luka Suluburic netting and their fourth coming from a Thomas Cracknall own goal.

Wednesday saw an eight goal thriller in the Derbyshire Senior Cup as Staveley Miners Welfare played out a 4-4 draw with visitors Dronfield Town before going through 6-5 on penalties.

Dronfield led 3-1 at the break and were then 4-3 up going into stoppage time when Kian Tansley grabbed a dramatic leveller for the Trojans who then enjoyed spot-kick glory.

There were three games postponed on Tuesday due to a waterlogged pitch, the all-NCEL tie in the West Riding County Cup between Selby Town and Wakefield AFC, Barton Town's home match with Maltby Main in the Premier Division, and Horbury Town's trip to Wombwell Town in Division One.

And, Worsbrough Bridge Athletic's home clash with Armthorpe Welfare fell to a similar fate on Wednesday meaning that the Division One meeting will now be played at a later date.
