Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2017/18 #6

24th August, 2017

Harrogate Railway Athletic were unable to become the eighth Toolstation NCEL side to reach this season's First Qualifying Round of the Emirates FA Cup in midweek, despite a late first half goal from Nathan James.

The Premier Division side went down 4-1 at UniBond League Division One North side Kendal Town to bow out of the competition at the Preliminary Round stage.

In the league, Rainworth Miners Welfare moved to the top of the Premier Division thanks to a 2-1 win at Bridlington Town, Nathan Modest and Tomas Poole scoring for the Wrens in the opening half-hour before Brett Agnew pulled one back for the Seasiders midway through the second period.

Handsworth Parramore and Pontefract Collieries joined Rainworth in going above Worksop Town who dropped from top spot after they went down 2-1 in the Sandy Lane derby with landlords Handsworth.

The Amber Parras, who were the "home" side on this occasion, took the lead on 47 minutes through Jonathan Froggatt before Kyle Jordan levelled things twenty minutes late but Aaron Moxam quickly settled the issue with his seventh goal of the season.

A hat-trick from Christopher Jackson, meanwhile, helped Pontefract to a 4-2 home win over Albion Sports.

Lee Turner joined Moxam at the top of the Premier Division scoring charts as he scored both of Garforth Town's goals in a 2-2 draw at Liversedge, Aaron Fell rescuing a point for the hosts eight minutes from time.

Garforth are sixth, just behind Hemsworth Miners Welfare who drew 3-3 at home with Hall Road Rangers after they were denied the victory by an injury-time equaliser from Matthew Crane.

Connor Smythe got all of AFC Mansfield's goals as they climbed to seventh with a 3-0 defeat of visitors Parkgate whilst, at the other end of the table, Bottesford Town got their first points of the season with a 4-0 home victory against Athersley Recreation, Daniel Boulton with two of their goals.

Bottom side Clipstone are now the only Premier Division side not yet off the mark as they lost 4-1 at Maltby Main, Lewis McMichael's two goals in the opening 22 minutes setting the hosts on their way to a victory that moves them up into ninth.

And, Staveley Miners Welfare prevailed in an entertaining game at Penistone Church, Joshua Schofield netting twice as they came away with the points in a 4-3 victory.

In Division One, Blaine Hobson and Colin Heath ensured Knaresborough Town made it five wins out of five to move them to the summit following their 2-1 victory at Armthorpe Welfare.

Ollerton Town could not join them, however, as they dropped points for the first time, beaten 4-1 at Campion with Daniel Cunningham and Thomas Robinson sealing the win for the hosts late on.

There was a hat-trick for Matthew Jackson as AFC Emley got themselves their first win, 5-0 at Retford United, whilst there were two each for Jack Bradbury and James Wrott in Grimsby Borough's 6-1 home victory over Brigg Town.

There were also braces for Conor Glavin in Glasshoughton Welfare's 3-0 defeat of hosts Dronfield Town and for Callum Lytham as FC Bolsover beat visitors Winterton Rangers, 2-0.

And, the remaining games ended 2-2 with Swallownest picking up a point on their travels at fellow new boys East Yorkshire Carnegie and Hallam were held by away side Selby Town.
