Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2017/18 #4

17th August, 2017

Clipstone remain at the foot of the early Toolstation NCEL Premier Division table after their 5-1 loss at home to Liversedge in midweek made it three defeats from their opening three league games.

The Cobras, who played most of the encounter with ten men, fell three goals behind through Devonte Morton, Brandon Kane and Stephen Wales before Gareth Curtis found the net for the hosts in the last minute of the opening period.

But, it was Sedge who would take further control of the game after the interval with Wales grabbing a second and Tom Brook netting their fifth around the hour mark to give their side four points from their first two matches.

Bottesford Town are the only other Premier Division side yet to pick up a point as their second league game of the campaign ended with a 3-2 loss at Rainworth Miners Welfare, the Wrens claiming their first victory thanks in part to a Nathan Modest double.

Hemsworth Miners Welfare remain top despite a 1-0 defeat at Pontefract Collieries, Vaughan Redford claiming the vital goal on 62 minutes, with Garforth Town, Pontefract and Worksop Town joining them and Handsworth Parramore on six points.

Callum Ward and Lee Turner netted in Garforth's 2-0 home win over Penistone Church and a late brace from Jake Currie saw Worksop Town prevail over visitors Bridlington Town in the highest attended NCEL game of the season so far of 390.

Maltby Main were 3-1 victors at Albion Sports, Jack Conley putting them 2-1 up on 71 minutes before Daniel Patterson's penalty made sure of the win as the game entered stoppage time.

Liam Gray's late goal was not enough for Harrogate Railway Athletic who were beaten 2-1 by hosts Staveley Miners Welfare, Kurtis Morley and Callum Mawbey netting for the Trojans.

And, the remaining three Premier Division games ended in draws, 1-1 between Athersley Recreation and Barton Town, and between Parkgate and Hall Road Rangers whilst there were no goals in AFC Mansfield's trip to Thackley.

Yorkshire Amateur are the new leaders of Division One after Fernando Moke's 25th minute strike secured a 1-0 victory at Hallam to make it three wins and one draw from their four games so far.

The Ammers go above Shirebrook Town whose match at Rossington Main was abandoned just before half-time due to injury with the score at 1-1.

Main's Leon Cusworth suffered a sinus fracture in a clash of heads and all at the NCEL wish him the best for a speedy recovery.

Ollerton Town maintained their hundred percent record as Gavin King's last gasp winner secured them a 2-1 home defeat of Worsbrough Bridge Athletic and they are now fourth in the table, a point off the top.

There were two goals for Thomas Robinson as Campion beat hosts Swallownest, 4-0, a feat equalled by East Yorkshire Carnegie's Jordan Harrison in their 4-1 win over visitors Dronfield Town.

And, Jack Bradbury also netted twice as Grimsby Borough claimed their first points of the season in a 3-1 victory at Winterton Rangers.

Selby Town edged out away side Retford United, 3-2, whilst there were also home wins for Eccleshill United and FC Bolsover.

Eccleshill beat Glasshoughton Welfare, 2-0, and it was a 3-1 scoreline in Bolsover's favour at the expense of Armthorpe Welfare.

Meanwhile, Alec Denton scored for Handsworth in a 5-1 friendly defeat at home to a very strong Chesterfield side.
