The Second Round Qualifying stage of the Emirates FA Cup took place this weekend with two of the four remaining Toolstation NCEL sides forcing replays against higher-ranked opposition.

AFC Mansfield drew 0-0 at home with Evo-Stik League side Rushall Olympic whilst Handsworth Parramore will travel to Vanarama National League North outfit FC United of Manchester on Tuesday after a 1-1 draw at the King of Soho Stadium.

A Patrick Lindley strike as the game was moving towards stoppage time saw the Amber Parras snatch a dramatic late leveller after their visitors had taken a first half lead.

Penistone Church's run ended with a 3-0 defeat at another National League North side, former NCEL members Harrogate Town, but they can be proud of their journey in the competition this season.

Meanwhile, Albion Sports also bowed out in the one game played on Sunday as they were beaten 4-0 at home by Hallmark Security League outfit Ashton Athletic.

There were eight Premier Division games on Saturday with leaders Pontefract Collieries keeping themselves at the summit with a 5-0 home victory over Parkgate.

Vaughan Redford struck twice whilst Eli Hey, Spencer Clarke and Michael Dunn also got on the scoresheet as Ponte made it six games in a row where they have scored five.

A late winner from Russell Parker earned Pickering Town a 1-0 win at home to Hemsworth Miners Welfare to leapfrog over their opponents into second spot, two points off the top.

Dean Smith popped up even later as his injury time goal snatched a 2-1 victory for Maltby Main over visitors Hall Road Rangers to move the Muglet Lane side up into fourth.

Bridlington Town found themselves two goals down at the interval at Thackley thanks to a Sam Cable brace but Joel Sutton, Brett Agnew and Jake Day turned the game on its head as the Seasiders ran out 3-2 winners to climb into sixth.

They go above Worksop Town who drew 1-1 at Staveley Miners Welfare, Kyle Jordan with a stoppage time leveller for the Tigers after Ashley Rawson had given the hosts a 56th minute lead.

There was also a double for Declan Bacon as Bottesford Town defeated hosts Harrogate Railway Athletic, 3-2, for a much-needed win.

Division One leaders Knaresborough Town have stretched their lead to four points after Blaine Hobson, a Tom Hesketh penalty and a 77th minute goal from Brad Walker saw them win 3-0 at Winterton Rangers to maintain their unbeaten start to the campaign.

Their nearest rivals, Yorkshire Amateur and Campion, both lost ground as they could only draw, Fernando Moke rescuing a point for the Ammers in a 1-1 stalemate at home to Worsbrough Bridge Athletic.

And, Campion were held to the same scoreline by visitors Glasshoughton Welfare, Conor Glavin with a 62nd minute equaliser.

Fourth-placed Rossington Main won 1-0 on their own patch against Dronfield Town, Declan Howe's tenth minute strike proving to be enough, whilst Selby Town and Eccleshill United complete the top six after victories.
