Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2016/17 #55
Cleethorpes Town have become the first Toolstation NCEL side in five years to reach the Semi-Finals of the Buildbase FA Vase after a Sixth Round victory on their travels on Saturday.
The Owls went to London to face Spartan South Midlands Football League side Southall and raced into a 3-0 lead by half-time, Liam Davis opening the scoring before a Jonathan Oglesby brace put them in full control.
Brody Robertson added a fourth before the hosts pulled one back but Davis struck again on 77 minutes to rubberstamp the victory as it finished 5-2 with the home side netting their second late on.
Cleethorpes go into the draw for the last four that takes place on Monday with the Semi-Finals played over two legs in March.
Meanwhile, their lead at the top of the Premier Division is now down to two points after Pickering Town's 3-1 home victory over Clipstone, the Pikes going behind on the half-hour through a Gareth Curtis strike but Joseph Danby, Nathan Kamara and then Lewis Taylor from the spot secured the win.
Third-placed Bridlington Town, however, were beaten by a single goal by visitors Athersley Recreation, Samuel Bebbington getting the match winner as the Seasiders stay ten points off the summit.
AFC Mansfield's surge up the table continued as their sixth straight league win propelled them up into sixth spot, a 4-1 victory at home to near neighbours Rainworth Miners Welfare, Grant Allott's brace securing the win after Joe Cheeseman and Matthew Plummer had put them two up.
The Bulls go above Albion Sports who went down 2-1 at Maltby Main, Steve Hopewell with an 85th minute winner, and Liversedge who were beaten 2-0 at Garforth Town, the home side's goals coming from Sean Hunter and Mark Simpson.
Retford United are now at the foot of the pile after they were beaten 2-1 at home by fellow bottom three side Parkgate, Sam Thornton's brace picking up three vital points for the visitors.
The Badgers replace Barton Town Old Boys who won 3-2 at Harrogate Railway Athletic, Thomas Waudby with what could prove to be a priceless winner nineteen minutes from time for the Swans.
Elsewhere, Joshua Nichol and Daniel Boulton netted for Bottesford Town in a 2-1 victory over visitors Hemsworth Miners Welfare whilst there was a 1-1 draw between Armthorpe Welfare and Staveley Miners Welfare at Church Street.
Pontefract Collieries' lead at the top of Division One is now three points after Jamie Williams' 43rd minute strike earned them a 1-0 victory at fifth-placed Grimsby Borough that inflicted a first home defeat of the season on their hosts.
The other two top three sides played out a 0-0 draw, hosts AFC Emley staying second whilst Hall Road Rangers drop to fourth as they are overtaken by Penistone Church who won 4-0 at home to Dronfield Town.
Duncan Richards and James Young scored in the first half before Andrew Ring and Daniel Joynes completed the scoring after the interval to keep Penistone in the hunt for automatic promotion.
Hallam, who occupy sixth spot, put some daylight between themselves and the side just outside the play-off zone, Knaresborough Town, by beating them 4-1 at Sandygate, Kieran Watson's brace helping his side extend its lead over them to five points.
Basement side Nostell Miners Welfare cut the gap to safety to six points as Luke Robinson's goal midway through the second period secured a 1-0 home victory over Selby Town.
There were two goals each for Josh Morley and Oliver Maude as Glasshoughton Welfare defeated visitors Shirebrook Town, 6-2, whilst a double for Eccleshill United's Alex Cusack was cancelled out by a couple from Rossington Main's Lee Holmes as they drew 2-2 at Mitton Group Stadium.
Matthew Jones and Talent Ndlovu's second half goals gave Campion a 2-0 victory at Ollerton Town and David Cockerill struck twice for Teversal in their 3-0 win at home to Brigg Town.
Two games were called off with Handsworth Parramore's Premier Division clash at home to Thackley cancelled due to ongoing work on their ground's changing rooms whilst Westella & Willerby's home encounter with Yorkshire Amateur was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
