Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2019/20 #49

9th February, 2020

The top two and bottom two in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division both faced each other on Saturday whilst Division One went to form with all of the top five sides picking up three points in the race for promotion.

Staveley Miners Welfare are now three points clear at the summit of the Premier Division after they came away from their trip to Penistone Church with a 3-1 victory.

The hosts, who were looking for a win to go back up into pole position, took the lead on four minutes through Jordan Coduri but Patrick Lindley levelled midway through the first period.

Robson Doolan then gave the Trojans the upper hand early in the second half and Adam Lund made sure of the win with the third in the 84th minute in front of 374 spectators, the NCEL's biggest crowd of the day.

Liversedge and Yorkshire Amateur remain in third and fourth place, respectively, after 1-1 draws with Sedge needing a late equaliser from Mark Simpson to claim a point at home to AFC Mansfield who had taken the lead in the 80th minute through Ross Duggan.

The Ammers, meanwhile, scored first in their home match with Silsden but their 66th minute deadlock breaker from Roy Fogarty was cancelled out by Christopher Wademan.

A dramatic 3-2 win at Barton Town gave Grimsby Borough the victory that moves them up into sixth spot, Adam Drury and Lewis Bemrose with goals in the last couple of minutes that turned around a game from which the hosting Swans had seemingly been destined to take all three points.

Borough climb above Hemsworth Miners Welfare who were beaten 4-3 at Thackley, a double from Albert Ibrahimi helping the Dennyboys to a victory that sees them jump up into eleventh.

Sean Hunter and Jack Lazenby netted for Garforth Town as they won 2-1 at home to Albion Sports and they go up into eighth above Maltby Main who were beaten 3-1 by tenth-placed visitors Eccleshill United.

Nicky Boshell's penalty gave the Eagles a 2-1 lead going into the final quarter of the game and the victory was sealed on 84 by Aran Basi.

Bottom side Athersley Recreation knew a win would put them just two points away from safety in a massive match at home to the team they are chasing in the battle to avoid the drop.

But, Bottesford Town left Sheerien Park with the victory that means the gap is now eight points, Jacob Fenton with a late winner after Dayle Hutson's opener had been cancelled out by the Rec's Alex Hutchinson.

Elsewhere, Knaresborough Town were 3-1 home winners over Goole AFC, Robert Youhill, Daniel Thirkell and Jack Carr with the goals that lift them into sixteenth.

It is as-you-were in Division One after the leading five teams who are chasing four promotion spots won their matches, meaning Winterton Rangers remain the tabletoppers by three points.

But, it needed a 90th minute penalty from Nathan Peat to secure a 1-0 win to break the hearts of their dogged visitors Ollerton Town.

Selby Town enjoyed the biggest crowd of the day in Division One as 355 saw the Robins dispatch Swallownest 5-1 to stay second, courtesy of Joshua Rogerson's brace along with goals from Casey Stewart, Samuel Cable and Liam Flanagan.

A further point behind in third place are Skegness Town who, thanks to strikes from Daniel Brooks, Jordan Smith and Daniel Trott, claimed a 3-0 home victory against Worsbrough Bridge Athletic.

And, there was another big crowd at the Dransfield Stadium, 343 witnessing North Ferriby's 2-1 defeat of visitors Glasshoughton Welfare, Tom Corner with an 88th minute winner to keep the Villagers in the hunt in fourth place.

Campion strengthened their grip on fifth spot with a 10-0 thrashing of basement side East Hull, racing into a 7-0 lead by the half-hour with Mohammad Qasim's hat-trick, a Ben Bodle double, and one each for Andrew McCreadie and Aidan Kirby piling the misery onto the visitors.

Three more were added after the interval with one from Luke Harrop and two from Daniel Facey as Campion put a four point gap between themselves and sixth spot that is now occupied by Retford FC who drew 0-0 at home with Armthorpe Welfare.

At the foot of the table, all six bottom sides tasted defeat with Harrogate Railway Athletic, Brigg Town and Hall Road Rangers joining East Hull, Worsbrough and Ollerton in disappointment.

The Rail took the lead at home to Parkgate towards the end of the first period but the away side levelled soon after the interval and Zak Khalifa's 84th minute winner means the Steelmen climb to twelfth whilst Harrogate stay ten points away from safety.

Brigg were beaten 3-1 at Hallam as second half goals from Micah Bishop, Thomas Roebuck and Samuel Fewkes secured the win for the Countrymen.

And, Hall Road were 2-1 up going into injury time at Rossington Main but Conner Williamson equalised and Alfie Dodsworth struck twice in a remarkable finish to give the hosts a 4-2 victory.

Finally, there was a 1-1 draw between Nostell Miners Welfare and Dronfield Town, Rhys Meynell's early penalty for the hosts was followed by Callum Mawbey's leveller for the away side midway through the second period.
