Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2017/18 #20

11th October, 2017

Midweek was dominated by First Round County Cup matches for a number of Toolstation NCEL sides whilst there were three games in the Premier Division and one fixture in Division One.

Campion produced the biggest cup victory as they won 4-1 at Evo-Stik League Premier Division side Ossett Town in the West Riding County Cup, Thomas Robinson and Brighton Mugadza giving them the perfect start in the opening twenty minutes.

Talent Ndlovu added their third early in the second period before the hosts pulled one back but Lee Bradshaw restored Campion's three goal cushion on 67.

There were no giantkilling acts in the competition, though, for Knaresborough Town who, despite Stephen Bromley's goal, went down 4-1 at Farsley Celtic or for Liversedge who were beaten 5-1 at home by Goole AFC, Tom Brook getting on the scoresheet for Sedge.

The other three ties were all-NCEL affairs with Thackley progressing 3-1 on penalties after being held 1-1 at home by Glasshoughton Welfare, Mitchell Wilshere putting the Division One visitors ahead on 22 minutes before a Matthew Cunliffe own goal towards the start of the second period brought their Premier Division hosts level.

Redmond Lee struck twice as Albion Sports won 4-0 at home to Premier Division rivals Harrogate Railway after Lamin Janneh had given the Lions a 69th minute lead and Alex Cusack completed the scoring a quarter-of-an-hour later.

And, in the all-Division One clash, Harrison Blakey and T'nique Fishley struck at the start of each half to give Yorkshire Amateur a 2-0 win at home to Eccleshill United.

There were four matches in the Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup that all went to form with the higher ranked sides going through, Rossington Main beaten 4-1 at Sheffield whilst Worksop Town were beaten 3-2 in extra-time at home by Stocksbridge Park Steels.

Declan Howe got Main's goal whilst Alec Denton and Matthew Thompson netted for the Tigers in their narrow defeat.

Neil Towler struck twice in the closing minutes to send Nostell Miners Welfare through with a 3-1 victory over AFC Brodsworth Welfare and Worsbrough Bridge Athletic join them in the Second Round after their 2-1 home victory at the expense of Phoenix.

The hosts both prevailed in the two Lincolnshire Senior Trophy all-NCEL ties, Declan Bacon's double helping to send Bottesford Town through, 3-1 against Brigg Town, whilst Winterton Rangers upset their higher-ranked visitors Barton Town, beating them 4-1.

Lewis Bemrose, Kieran Wressell, Paul Grimes and Elliot Broughton struck to give the Division One home side a convincing victory after William Waudby had given the Swans a first half lead.

And, Ollerton Town progressed in the Notts Senior Cup as they won 3-1 at home to Arnold Town, Gavin King's opener on the hour mark added to by a Lewis Bingham brace before the visitors grabbed an injury time consolation.

In the Premier Division, Handsworth Parramore are up to third after a 5-2 victory at sixth-placed Hemsworth Miners Welfare, Jason Yates, Jonathan Hill, Jonathan Froggatt and Joseph Thornton putting them four goals up by the 70th minute before a Nash Connolly double sparked a mini-comeback by the home side that was quickly snuffed out by Oliver Yates with the Amber Parras' fifth.

Garforth Town stay ninth despite a 4-0 home loss to Athersley Recreation who climb to fifteenth, Daniel Cawley with a brace whilst Jack Briscoe and Lee Garside also got on the scoresheet.

Hall Road Rangers are up to tenth after James Piercy's 75th minute winner claimed a 2-1 home victory over Staveley Miners Welfare who drop below them to eleventh, Louis Bruce's first half stoppage time opener for the hosts had been cancelled out by Adam Baskerville.

And, in Division One, Grimsby Borough are now third following their 4-2 home defeat of Hallam after they had been pegged back by the visitors, Joshua Venney and Adam Drury's first half strikes for Borough cancelled out by the 75th minute by Andrew Fox and an Arthur Okonkwo own goal.

But, Drury grabbed his second of the evening to restore the hosts' lead and Daniel Trott added their fourth on 85 to make sure of the victory.
