Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2017/18 #9

3rd September, 2017

AFC Mansfield, Albion Sports, Penistone Church and Handsworth Parramore are all through to the Second Round of Qualifying in the Emirates FA Cup after excellent victories on Saturday.

AFC Mansfield booked their place with a comfortable 4-0 home victory over fellow Nottinghamshire side Dunkirk at the Forest Town Stadium, Nicholas Guest and Philip Buxton putting them two up by the interval before Oliver Fearon and Lynton Karkach added to the tally in the second period.

Things were a little more dramatic for Albion Sports as they saw off visitors Barnoldswick Town in a thrilling finale after it had looked as though Alex Cusack and Asif Hussain's goals had already claimed the victory going into stoppage time.

However, the away side then made it all square but, just as it looked as though a replay was on the cards, Daniel Facey popped up to grab a winner and send the Lions through, 3-2.

Penistone also left it right to the end to clinch their spot in the next stage by the same scoreline, twice coming from behind to be level at 2-2 at half-time with goals from Tom Brennan and Brett Lovell but it was Andrew Ring who stole the headlines as he struck in injury time to make it an afternoon to remember for the home support.

Meanwhile, Parramore also came from behind to pick up a fine 2-1 win at Skelmersdale United, Simon Harrison restoring parity before Aaron Moxam's winner came in the 69th minute.

Liversedge could join the quartet in the next round that takes place in the middle of September as they have a home replay after drawing 0-0 at Sunderland RCA.

The final remaining Division One side, Grimsby Borough, bowed out but had plenty to be proud of in their 1-0 defeat at Warrington Town whilst Bottesford Town also were narrowly beaten by a single goal in their home match with Shildon.

There were eight games in the Premier Division with the top two both winning to maintain their places at the summit, leaders Pontefract Collieries remaining ahead of Hemsworth Miners Welfare by a point.

The Colls were 5-2 victors over visitors Athersley Recreation with four of their goals coming in nine minutes at the start of the second period.

The score was 1-1 before Jack Greenhough, Ashley Emmett, Kane Reece and Michael Dunn struck in quick succession to end the match as a contest before the hour mark.

Hemsworth won 3-1 at Staveley Miners Welfare, Richard Collier's opener cancelled out by the home side's Robson Doolan but Bradley Dockerty quickly restored their advantage and the third was added in the 55th minute by Nash Connolly.

Maltby Main have moved up into third after they beat visitors Thackley, 3-1, Cameron Rigby and Ryan Smith's early goals setting them on their way before a Daniel Patterson 77th minute penalty eased their nerves after Luke Robinson had brought the away side back into the game.

Worksop Town are in sixth after they dispatched hosts Clipstone, 5-0, with two each for Conor Higginson and Micah Bishop whilst Kyle Jordan also got on the scoresheet in a match that was goalless at half-time.

Clipstone remain bottom of the pile whilst the two sides above them, Barton Town and Parkgate, also tasted defeat as they both went down 2-1 despite taking the lead.

Gary Bradshaw had Barton ahead at home to Hall Road Rangers but a Christopher Spinks penalty and a Sam Belcher strike saw the three points go to the visitors.

And, Christopher Howard broke the deadlock for Parkgate at Bridlington Town but the Seasiders took the victory with goals from Jake Day and Andrew Norfolk in the last twelve minutes.

Elsewhere, Pickering Town are up to seventh after Ryan Blott's decider in a 1-0 win at Garforth Town whilst Mendes Dionisio netted twice for Harrogate Railway Athletic in their 4-1 home defeat of Rainworth Miners Welfare.

In Division One, leaders Knaresborough Town maintained their hundred percent record with a battling 2-1 win at Swallownest to make it a maximum 24 points from their eight games so far.

Ashley Burbeary had put the home side ahead in the first half and Knaresborough had to wait until the 77th minute for an equaliser thanks to a Tom Hesketh penalty and then Stephen Bromley grabbed what proved to be a winner.

Yorkshire Amateur stay four points behind them in second spot after a dramatic 2-1 victory of their own on their travels as they went behind to Charlie Clamp's strike for Selby Town on 78 minutes before Daniel Naidole and then, in stoppage time, Lewis Pickering turned the game on its head.

And, third placed Campion ensured the gap between themselves and the summit stayed at eight points as a Leon Hurles-Brook double helped them to a 3-2 home victory over Hallam.

Thomas Whiting struck twice late on for East Yorkshire Carnegie as they won 4-0 on their own patch against Retford United, going up into fourth above Ollerton Town and Rossington Main who both drew.

Lewis Bingham's goal for Ollerton was cancelled out by Joshua Parfitt for visitors FC Bolsover as their local derby finished 1-1 whilst Rossington came from 2-0 down at Winterton Rangers to take a point with Danny Bulman getting the equaliser fifteen minutes from time.

Brigg Town move off the bottom of the table with their first win of the season, a 4-0 triumph over visitors Dronfield Town, George Merrick's brace added to by Oscar Marsden and Charlie Dolling as the Zebras go up five places to seventeenth.

Nostell Miners Welfare are the biggest climbers, however, as their 3-2 win at Armthorpe Welfare - Nathan Smith with all of their goals - sees them zoom up the table from twentieth to thirteenth.

And, another hat-trick hero was Jonathan Irving whose triple strike helped Eccleshill United dispatch visitors Worsbrough Bridge Athletic, 5-1, to move them up into eleventh.
