Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2017/18 #17

1st October, 2017

AFC Mansfield's run in the Emirates FA Cup came to a valiant end on Saturday as they became the final Toolstation NCEL side to bow out of this season's competition.

The Premier Division side welcomed Vanarama National League North outfit Boston United, a team three divisions above them in the National League System, to the Forest Town Stadium and, despite a battling performance that earned plaudits from their visitors, went down 2-0.

Jack Broadhead opened the scoring for the Pilgrims on thirteen minutes in the Third Round Qualifying tie, the Bulls had the ball in the net in the second period but it was chalked off for offside and then Kabongo Tshimanga made sure of the victory for their opponents in stoppage time.

In the Premier Division, leaders Pickering Town are now five points clear after a 3-2 home win over Rainworth Miners Welfare, the Pikes storming into a three goal lead by the 70th minute thanks to a Ryan Blott brace sandwiching a Lewis Taylor strike.

The Wrens fought back with goals from Joshua Ross and Bryan Dahouri but the hosts hung on to take full advantage of a free weekend for second-placed Pontefract Collieries.

An Alex Lill hat-trick sees Maltby Main climb up into third following their 3-1 victory at home to next-to-bottom Barton Town who grabbed a late consolation through Dane Mortimer, closely followed by Worksop Town who are now fourth as they produced an identical scoreline against visitors Hemsworth Miners Welfare.

Welfare, who started the day in third but have dropped to fifth, scored first through Nathan Perks and held the lead until the 67th minute whereupon Micah Bishop equalised, and then Jordan Turner and an Alec Denton penalty claimed the win for the Tigers.

Handsworth Parramore struck twice in injury time to snatch a 4-2 victory at Harrogate Railway Athletic to move up into sixth, Jonathan Froggatt's second of the afternoon added to by a Joseph Thornton strike to take the three points from a game that had seemed destined to end in a draw.

Bridlington Town led twice at Penistone Church through a Brett Agnew opener and a Daniel Buttle penalty but were pegged back on both occasions thanks to goals from Kieran Ryan and Andrew Ring in a 2-2 draw that saw the Seasiders stay seventh whilst Penistone remain in nineteenth spot.

There was also a 2-2 scoreline at Inkersall Road where Callam Lytham's 68th minute equaliser shared the spoils for hosts Staveley Miners Welfare and their visitors Athersley Recreation.

Mark Simpson claimed a hat-trick in Garforth Town's 3-3 home draw with Thackley whilst there were also three goals for Bradley Kerr as Parkgate won 4-0 at bottom side Clipstone.

Albion Sports were 3-1 home winners over Hall Road Rangers, Stephen Smith with two of their goals, whilst Liversedge edged a 5-4 scoreline over visitors Bottesford Town.

The top three sides in Division One all dropped points but leaders Knaresborough Town increased their advantage at the summit to five points with a 0-0 draw at Rossington Main as their closest rivals, Yorkshire Amateur and Campion, were both beaten 3-2.

The Ammers took the lead at East Yorkshire Carnegie through Ashley Flynn but then were swept away by three goals in eight minutes from Thomas Giblin, Jordan Harrison and Daniel Walker to trail 3-1 by the half-hour mark.

Fernando Moke reduced the deficit to a single goal by the interval but, surprisingly, there were no further goals and Carnegie took the points to climb to tenth.

Campion led 2-0 at home to AFC Emley, Brighton Mugadza and Daniel Cunningham netting for the hosts, but a Luke Hall brace of penalties and a goal from Joshua Ingham meant it was the visitors who took the three points that lifts them up into eleventh.

Lee Briggs and Joseph Winship scored for Grimsby Borough who are now fourth after their 2-0 home victory over Armthorpe Welfare whilst Eccleshill United won 3-1 at Ollerton Town to go up into fifth, a Luke Harrop penalty and a Ben Hardy strike setting them on their way to victory.

Rossington fall to sixth on goal difference above Selby Town who beat visitors Shirebrook Town, 4-2, Joseph Dale with a couple for the Robins in the opening thirteen minutes before Shirebrook fought back with a Daniel Williams double but Ryan Gothard and Liam Flanagan restored their two-goal lead.

The basement battle saw the bottom two teams meet at the Hawthorns and it ended a point apiece as basement side Brigg Town let a two-goal lead slip, Cameron Hill and George Merrick with their goals, as Retford United claimed a 2-2 draw thanks to Lee Betts and Bradley Kilner.

And, the two sides above them also met with Jamie Miller's double helping Nostell Miners Welfare to a 3-1 victory at Worsbrough Bridge Athletic to move their side above their hosts into nineteenth position.

Elsewhere, there were wins on their travels for Dronfield Town, Glasshoughton Welfare and Hallam.

Ryan Baxter and Antony Holmes netted for Dronfield in a 2-0 victory at FC Bolsover, Ryan Poskitt got two of Glasshoughton's goals in a 5-3 triumph at Swallownest and Hallam won 2-1 at Winterton Rangers, courtesy of goals from Mitchell Dunn and Alex Brown.
