NCEL Match Review #17
5th October, 2008
The focus returned to the FA Vase with sixteen of our KoolSport NCEL sides taking part in First Round action.
And, seven have made it through to the next phase in November whilst two have another chance in replays in midweek.
The most impressive result came at Queensgate where Bridlington Town won 6-1 over high-flying Northern League visitors West Allotment Celtic.
Chibuzor Chilaka grabbed a hat-trick and Craig Palmer struck twice late-on to make it a very comfortable afternoon for the Seasiders after Tom Fleming had given them a 32nd minute lead.
The other two home winners went through at the expense of fellow NCEL sides.
Thackley won 3-0 against Liversedge with Kyle Shah striking twice, once from the penalty spot, towards the end of the opening period, before Chris Coy made certain with the third two minutes from time.
And, Winterton Rangers beat Selby Town 2-1 with Danny Clarke and Greg Archer getting the goals ? in between Sean Gorman struck for the Robins.
Biggest winners away from home were Long Eaton United who, thanks to braces from Kevlin Mushambi and Lee Sutton were 4-0 victors at Warstones Wanderers.
Arnold Town saw off their hosts and former NCEL side, Borrowash Victoria, 3-1.
Martin Carruthers put them ahead on 14 minutes before the Vics equalised earlier in the second period.
David Wilkins and then Carruthers in injury-time made sure of the victory.
Scarborough Athletic came from behind to beat Esh Winning after Craig Coates had put the hosts ahead on 25 minutes.
A Robbie Blemmings own goal on 74 minutes drew the scores level and Daniel Gray grabbed the winner eight minutes later.
And, Brodsworth struck four times in fourteen second-half minutes at fellow NCEL rivals, Rossington Main, to win 4-1.
Nathan Fraser had put Main ahead halfway through the first period but one from Gavin Cooper, two from Liam Wilkin and another from Darren Fell made sure the Premier Division side conquered the Division One outfit.
Nostell Miners Welfare showed great resilience to force a replay in a dramatic match at Ashton Athletic.
Simon Gallenden put Ashton ahead on two minutes but it wasn't until the 72nd minute that Nostell drew back level through Dave Nicholas.
Will Ryder then regained the lead for the hosts with four minutes remaining only for Nostell to level through Craig Stephens in injury time.
Into extra time, and Ashton went 4-2 up in the opening six minutes through David Sherlock and Chris Lawton.
Nostell, who were then reduced to ten men, somehow managed to score twice in the last five minutes through Dave Watts and Darren Rushton, to end the game 4-4.
Hallam had to come from behind twice at Alsager Town to finish 2-2 after extra time with goals from Rob Ward and Richard Patterson.
The FA Vase adventure, meanwhile, is over for Leeds Carnegie, Teversal, Rainworth Miners Welfare and Tadcaster Albion.
Mickleover Sports are the new leaders of the Premier Division after a 3-2 win at home to Dinnington Town.
Pickering Town climb to fourth thanks to the same scoreline at Maltby Main in which three of the goals came from the penalty spot.
Rob Branagan scored from twelve yards on seven minutes for Maltby before Daniel Patterson doubled their lead on 33 minutes.
Mark Swales then netted two spot kicks around the hour mark and Chaz Wrigley got the vital third for Pickering Town on 64 minutes.
Hall Road Rangers' afternoon started off with a goal in the first thirty seconds by Adam Walker at Parkgate and they went on to claim a 4-1 win to climb up to sixth.
Paul Palmer scored from the penalty spot four minutes later and then added a third for the visitors before the break.
David Ingram made it four soon after the interval and Ryan Johnson grabbed the consolation for Parkgate on 87.
Shirebrook Town were the happiest after the battle of two sides who were searching for their first points of the season.
A Kieren Watson goal seven minutes from time saw them win 1-0 at Lincoln Moorlands Railway.
Railway are next-to-bottom with Eccleshill United, who lost 3-0 at home to Armthorpe Welfare, at the foot of the table.
Hemsworth Miners Welfare leapfrog Scarborough to the top of Division One despite being held to a 1-1 draw at Appleby Frodingham.
Damion Liddle had put Welfare ahead early on before Danny Jackson equalised midway through the second period.
A Gareth Barlow hat-trick, making it nine in the League for him so far, helped Barton Town Old Boys to a 4-1 home win over bottom side Glasshoughton Welfare.
Barton are now third with games in hand on the two sides above them.
AFC Emley and Askern Villa both picked up single goal home victories.
Villa are fifth after Curtis Walker's 18th-minute strike earned the points against Pontefract Collieries and Andy Farrell's goal on 48 minutes moves Emley up to sixth thanks to their win over Bottesford Town.
And, the spoils were shared between Yorkshire Amateur and Staveley Miners Welfare who played out a 1-1 draw at Bracken Edge.
