Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2019/20 #47

2nd February, 2020

February began with a full programme of Toolstation NCEL Premier Division matches on Saturday whilst there were eight games in Division One as the chase for promotion and the fight to avoid relegation hot up.

Staveley Miners Welfare's lead at the top of the Premier Division was cut to just goal difference after they were held to a 1-1 home draw by Thackley, Gary Mundy rescuing a point for the Trojans with a 77th minute equaliser after Raymond Sibanda had put the visitors ahead towards the end of the first half.

Second-placed Penistone Church won 3-0 at Eccleshill United, Nathan Keightley, Danny Howes and Kieran Ryan netting in the second period, to close the gap with the summit.

It was fourth versus third at the Southerns Stadium as Yorkshire Amateur drew 1-1 at home with Liversedge when Joseph Kenny's 32nd minute strike had seemingly given the visitors all three points only for them to be denied in stoppage time by Roy Fogarty.

Sedge stay in third, three points behind Staveley and Penistone, whilst the Ammers drop a place to fifth, overtaken by Bridlington Town who were 1-0 home victors over Knaresborough Town, Thomas Waudby with the vital strike in the 44th minute.

The Seasiders also go above Hemsworth Miners Welfare who fall to sixth after a 1-0 loss at home to bottom side Athersley Recreation, Robbie Miller with the injury time goal that gave the Rec only their third league win of the season.

Next-to-bottom Bottesford Town were also victorious to keep a five point gap between themselves and the basement as they won 2-1 at the side just above them, AFC Mansfield.

Jacob Fenton scored the opener just before the interval and Dayle Hutson doubled the Poachers' lead early in the second half before Ross Duggan's seventeenth league goal of the season brought the Bulls back into the game on 55.

Elsewhere, there were away wins for Barton Town, Garforth Town and Maltby Main with Garforth enjoying the biggest victory as a Jack Lazenby double, along with strikes from Daniel Coupland, Alex Burton and Sean Hunter, earned them a 5-0 scoreline at Goole AFC in a match that was goalless at the break.

Ben Algar, Jonathan Hill and Rory Coleman netted for Maltby in a 3-0 win at Grimsby Borough, and Jack McMenemy struck the only goal of the game for Barton at Albion Sports.

Silsden consolidated thirteenth spot with a 2-0 home victory over Handsworth, Laurence Surhaindo and Jake Taylor-Mountford with the goals at either end of the second half.

None of the top five won in Division One with leaders Winterton Rangers preserving a four-point gap over second-placed Skegness Town, courtesy of a 2-2 draw at Swallownest.

Rangers looked to have sealed the points when Joshua Street put them 2-1 ahead in the 85th minute but Matthew Morton made sure the spoils were shared with a quick equaliser.

Skegness drew 1-1 at fourth-placed North Ferriby, Jason Field putting the Lilywhites ahead on 16 before Brody Robertson restored parity just before the half-hour mark for the hosts.

Selby Town and Campion stay third and fifth, respectively, despite defeats with Selby going down 4-2 at Hall Road Rangers and Campion beaten 3-0 at Ollerton Town.

Lewis Andrew got two of Rangers' goals as they climb to fifteenth whilst Ollerton move up to sixteenth, courtesy of late goals from Lewis Bingham, Benjamin Partridge and Lewis Murr.

Home 2-1 defeats for Brigg Town and Worsbrough Bridge Athletic see them both drop into the bottom four, Samuel Bebbington's double seeing Brigg defeated by Dronfield Town, and Tyler Bradley and Thomas Wilson did the damage for Hallam at Worsbrough.

An Adam Baskerville penalty broke the deadlock for Armthorpe Welfare at home to East Hull with Tyler Walker and Luke Williams completing a 3-0 victory over the bottom side.

And, the day's only goalless scoreline came at Nostell Miners Welfare who drew a blank with visitors Rossington Main.
