Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2017/18 #15
24th September, 2017
The Buildbase FA Vase took centre stage at the weekend as Second Round Qualifying ties involving Toolstation NCEL sides were played on Saturday and Sunday.
25 of our teams took part on Saturday with thirteen of them booking their place in the next round and waiting for Monday's draw to see who they will face in the First Round in October.
There were three all-NCEL ties with Clipstone coming from behind to beat hosts and Premier Division rivals Barton Town who had taken a ninth minute lead thanks to a Ben Burbanks own goal.
Fenn Radford drew the sides level midway through the second period and then Brendan Williams grabbed the winner for the Cobras with nine minutes remaining and Barton announced after the 2-1 defeat that manager Dave Botham had left the club.
Liversedge's trip to Hemsworth Miners Welfare went to extra-time after the visitors' 26th minute opener from Joseph Walton was cancelled out soon after by Lloyd Henderson.
Tom Brook restored their advantage in the 100th minute and Regan Fish then doubled their lead before Richard Collier pulled one back for Hemsworth in the second period of extra-time but Sedge held on for a 3-2 win.
Rossington Main and Hallam will meet again on Tuesday after they drew 2-2 at Oxford Street, Declan Howe with an injury-time equaliser for Main after Hallam had thought they had snatched the victory when Mitchell Dunn had put them 2-1 up on 88 minutes.
There were wins on their travels against non-NCEL opposition for six of our sides with FC Bolsover and Pontefract Collieries both claiming 4-1 victories.
Bolsover came from behind at Melton Town with goals from Joshua Parfitt, Ben Goodwin, Montelle Kamara and Benjamin Copestake securing an ultimately comfortable win at their ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League hosts.
Eli Hey struck twice for the Colls as they marched through at Hallmark Security League side Winsford United, Mark Whitehouse and Kane Reece opening the scoring for them before the home grabbed a late consolation.
There were also two goals for Adam Lee as Staveley Miners Welfare progressed 4-2 at Midland League hosts Loughborough University whilst Alex Slack and Jonny Bullivant struck in quick succession as AFC Emley prevailed, 2-0, at Sandbach United and Brad Walker and Colin Heath were the heroes for Knaresborough Town as they won 2-1 at Jarrow Roofing Boldon CA of the Ebac Northern League.
Ryan Baxter's double helped Dronfield Town to a 4-2 extra-time win over visitors Barnton, Garforth Town join them in the hat as Sean Hunter, Callum Ward and Mitchell Hamilton secured them a 3-2 home victory over Nelson and Daniel Chambers netted two of Hall Road Rangers' tally in their 4-1 defeat of visitors Skegness Town.
Shirebrook Town won 3-1 against Long Eaton United, Samuel Smith and Nathan Clarke's last-gasp goals securing their victory at Langwith Road whilst Worksop Town join them at the next stage as a Kyle Jordan brace helped the Tigers to a 3-0 win at home over Kirby Muxloe.
Sadly, seven teams bowed out on Saturday - Armthorpe Welfare, Bottesford Town, Glasshoughton Welfare, Maltby Main, Nostell Miners Welfare, Parkgate, Retford United and Thackley - against non-NCEL sides.
Then, on Sunday, there was disappointment for Ollerton Town as they went out at the hands of former NCEL side Westella & Willerby, 4-0.
There were two games each in the Premier Division and Division One on Saturday with victories for Handsworth Parramore and Albion Sports on their travels.
The Amber Parras are up to eight after Jonathan Froggatt's penalty and an Aaron Moxam strike set them up for a 2-1 win at Penistone Church who pulled one back through a spectacular long-range effort from Daniel Barlow.
And, Albion Sports were 3-0 winners at Rainworth Miners Welfare, Stephen Smith, Alex Cusack and Josh Barden with the goals that see them rise up to thirteenth.
Two of Division One's top three sides met at Southerns Stadium but it was third-placed Campion who took away the points, a couple of Robbie Graham penalties claiming them a 2-1 win to move within a point of second-placed Yorkshire Amateur whose goal by Harrison Blakey came between the spot kicks.
Meanwhile, Eccleshill United have moved up to fifth after Jonathan Irving's second-half double earned them a 3-2 win at home to Swallownest after they were two-down to the visitors after just eighteen minutes, Jamie Hopkins and Alex Nightingale seemingly putting the away side in full control before Ben Hardy started the fightback for the Eagles.
