Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2017/18 #7

26th August, 2017

Newly promoted Pontefract Collieries are the new leaders of the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division after a 5-0 win at the side who were top of the pile at the start of Saturday, Rainworth Miners Welfare.

The home side were being managed by former England international Chris Waddle as boss Craig Denton was getting married but it was the visitors who had the day to remember, racing into a two goal lead in the opening ten minutes through Marcel Chigumira and a Julian Lawrence own goal.

Kane Reece added a third midway through the second period before a double from Ashley Emmett confirmed the victory.

The Wrens drop to sixth after the defeat with Hemsworth Miners Welfare, Maltby Main, AFC Mansfield and Staveley Miners Welfare also going above them.

Nash Connolly and Luke Danville netted in the opening quarter of Hemsworth's home game with Bottesford Town to secure a 2-0 win whilst Maltby went one better at Athersley Recreation, a Daniel Patterson penalty and goals from Ryan Smyth and Samuel Forster securing a 3-0 victory.

A late goal from Lynton Karkach confirmed three points for AFC Mansfield as they won 2-0 at home to the team who had begun the day in second, Handsworth Parramore, the deadlock earlier broken by an own goal from Jonathan Hill.

And, Staveley were behind to Lee Turner's eighth goal of the season for Garforth Town until the 61st minute when Joshua Schofield brought the hosts level and then Liam Nelthorpe and Tyla Bell turned the game on its head.

Clipstone remain at the foot of the table as a Ryan Blott hat-trick helped their visitors Pickering Town to a 4-2 win that leaves the Cobras still scrabbling for their first point of the campaign.

Just above them are Barton Town who went down 3-1 at home to Bridlington Town - Brett Agnew, Fraser Papprill and Jack Walters confirming the points for the Seasiders before a consolation from Thomas Waudby.

Parkgate are also in the bottom three despite a 1-1 home draw with Penistone Church, Kieran Hirst's penalty cancelled out by an Andrew Ring strike for the away side.

Sam Cable's late equaliser rescued a point for Thackley as they drew 2-2 with visitors Liversedge whilst Worksop Town went down 2-0 at home to Albion Sports, Omar Habeeb and Redmond Lee netting for the Lions.

And, Matthew Crane and Gareth Owen scored in the second half as Hall Road Rangers defeated Harrogate Railway Athletic, 3-1, at Haworth Park.

In Division One, Knaresborough Town's faultless start to the season continued as they made it six wins out of six with a 3-0 beating of visitors East Yorkshire Carnegie, courtesy of Blaine Hobson, Tom Hesketh and Greg Kidd.

Yorkshire Amateur stay within two points of them in second, though, with a 5-1 home victory over Shirebrook Town, Ashley Flynn's thirteenth goal of the campaign starting things off whilst Fernando Moke took his tally to seven with a double of his own.

Daniel Brown, Leon Hurles-Brook and Talent Ndlovu were the scorers for Campion as they climbed to third with a 3-0 win at Retford United.

They go above Shirebrook and Ollerton Town who went down 4-0 at Rossington Main, Declan Howe with two of the hosts' goals, and Rossington move up to sixth just above FC Bolsover who had the biggest win of the day.

Jordan Edridge scored twice on his debut and Regan Edridge also netted in his first game whilst Joshua Scully's penalty and a late Simba Ganyiwa strike helped claim a 5-0 victory over visitors Swallownest.

Nostell Miners Welfare stay bottom as they fell to a 1-0 loss at Dronfield Town, Daniel Wood the scorer, whilst Brigg Town suffered an identical fate at home to Winterton Rangers, Paul Grimes with a 75th minute winner for the away side.

And, last but not least, Grimsby Borough won a highly entertaining game at Eccleshill United, 4-3, Ben Hardy putting the hosts ahead twice before they were pegged back by Daniel Trott and a Carlton Pownall own goal.

Jack Debnam had Borough in front for the first time on 67 before Jamie Rowbotham quickly put them 4-2 up and Eccleshill almost fought back with Scott Manning making it an edgy last ten minutes for the away side who ultimately prevailed and climb up to ninth.
