Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2016/17 #36
There were much-needed victories in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division for Armthorpe Welfare and Worksop Town in a midweek that was dominated by County Cup action.
Armthorpe moved out of the bottom two with a 3-2 win at eighth placed Hemsworth Miners Welfare, Daniel Taylor breaking the deadlock for the visitors on 34 minutes.
Richard Collier levelled early in the second period for the home side but Gareth Roberts and then Liam Radford had Armthorpe two goals clear by the 69th minute and Nash Connolly got Hemsworth's second but they were unable to claim an equaliser.
Worksop, meanwhile, were 3-0 victors at home to basement side Barton Town Old Boys to climb to thirteenth in the table and, like Armthorpe, end a seven match run without a win.
Charlie Dawes and Kyle Jordan had the Tigers firmly in control by midway through the first half and Mitcham Husbands added their third on 66.
Hall Road Rangers and Grimsby Borough closed the gap on the top three in Division One with Rangers staying fourth but now four points off the summit after their 3-0 home victory over Rossington Main.
Daniel Norton's first half strike was added to after the interval by goals from Joshua Batty and Nathan Perks.
Borough won 2-0 at sixth placed Hallam to remain a point behind Rangers as Jack Debnam and Jack Bradbury netted for them at Sandygate.
There were two all-NCEL ties in the Third Round of the Notts Senior Cup with extra-time and penalties needed to separate Clipstone and Rainworth Miners Welfare, just three days after the sides had played out a 2-2 draw in the league.
Liam Royles put Clipstone ahead on 13 minutes but Matthew Sykes restored parity in the second half for the Wrens and it was the away side who ultimately prevailed, winning 8-7 on spot kicks after the game finished 1-1.
Teversal, meanwhile, defeated Retford United at Carnarvon Street, 6-2, with David Cockerill's first half hat-trick helping them to the victory whilst James McCann, Joshua Radford and Craig Mitchell also got on the scoresheet for the hosts.
Danny Naylor struck in the second half for AFC Mansfield but they bowed out of the competition with a 2-1 loss at West Bridgford.
Staveley Miners Welfare needed extra-time to overcome visitors Jubilee Sports in the Second Round of the Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup, Matthew Robinson and Joel Smith with the goals that clinched the game with a 4-2 victory.
And, there were no upsets, sadly, in the Third Round of the West Riding County Cup as Glasshoughton Welfare, Selby Town and Thackley were all beaten by higher-ranked opposition.
Selby took hosts Guiseley to a penalty shoot-out after a 2-2 draw but were beaten 4-2 on spot kicks whilst Glasshoughton lost 3-1 at Farsley Celtic and Thackley went down 1-0 at home to Bradford Park Avenue.
