Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2017/18 #27

5th November, 2017

The leaders of both divisions in the Toolstation NCEL tasted defeat on what was another dramatic Saturday packed with goals.

Pickering Town drop to fourth in the Premier Division after they were beaten 3-2 at home by AFC Mansfield who go above them into third.

Matthew Wilson had given the visitors a 1-0 lead at the interval and that is how it stayed until the game exploded into life in the last twenty minutes when Edward Cass levelled proceedings for the Pikes.

Craig Mitchell and Lynton Karkach struck to put the Bulls 3-1 up and then Ryan Blott brought the deficit back to one for the hosts in stoppage time.

Handsworth Parramore have become the fifth side to sit at the summit this season after they came from behind to win 3-2 at home to Albion Sports who had twice taken the lead through Daniel Facey.

Jonathan Froggatt restored parity in the first half and produced a repeat performance in the 76th minute before Jason Yates grabbed an injury-time winner to send the Amber Parras top.

They are a point ahead of former leaders Pontefract Collieries who moved up to second with a 6-1 victory at struggling Harrogate Railway Athletic, Eli Hey, Jack Greenhough, Kane Reece, Mark Whitehouse, Michael Dunn and Vaughan Redford all getting one each for the Colls.

Nathan James struck the last goal of the game for the Rail who are now on a twelve game losing streak and remain next-to-bottom of the table.

Maltby Main drop to fifth following a single goal defeat at Penistone Church, Kieran Ryan's last gasp winner earning the hosts a win that propels them up to eleventh.

A fifth straight victory sees Rainworth Miners Welfare climb to sixth, Nathan Modest and Tomas Poole with the Wrens goals on their travels as they beat hosts Parkgate, 2-0.

Hemsworth Miners Welfare join them in moving above Worksop Town after Richard Collier's brace helped Hemsworth to a 5-1 home victory over Liversedge with the hosts netting three times in the opening seventeen minutes.

Worksop, meanwhile, had a bruising day as they were beaten 4-0 at Hall Road Rangers, all of the goals coming in the opening period from James Piercy, Joshua Batty, Christopher Spinks and Fraser Hansen.

Basement side Clipstone almost picked up their first points of the campaign as Timothy Gregory gave them a fifth minute lead at Bridlington Town but Christopher Jenkinson equalised on the hour mark and Jake Day then claimed a 2-1 win for the Seasiders to keep themselves in ninth spot.

And, four goals where shared between Thackley and visitors Athersley Recreation, Adam Muller putting the Rec ahead before Jordan Hendrie and Kristian Hargreaves scored for the hosts and then McCauley Shillito found the net in the 75th minute for a 2-2 draw.

Two games were postponed due to waterlogged pitches with Barton Town's home game with Staveley Miners Welfare and Garforth Town's trip to Bottesford Town called off due to bad weather.

In Division One, leaders Knaresborough Town tasted defeat for the first time this season in their eighteenth league game as they went down 5-2 at Eccleshill United.

Knaresborough had led 2-0 after 32 minutes through William Lenehan and Brad Walker before the Eagles staged a remarkable comeback with Chris Level a hat-trick hero.

He struck twice towards the end of the first half and then, after Andrew Cooper had given the hosts a 57th minute lead, he added his third and Antony Brown completed the scoring for Eccleshill's fourth straight win that sees them up into third, eight points off the top.

Second placed Yorkshire Amateur narrowed the gap with Knaresborough to five points as they won 3-1 at home to Rossington Main, Harrison Blakey's double securing the victory after Ashley Flynn had cancelled out a seventh minute opener from Declan Howe for the visitors.

Shirebrook Town are now seven games unbeaten and have moved up to fifth but they will have been disappointed with a 2-2 home draw with Swallownest after Kieran Watson's 78th minute penalty - his 25th goal of the season - had seemingly secured them a victory.

But, the visitors responded with an 89th minute leveller from Michael Staley to take a point home and they stay seventeenth in the table.

Selby Town fall to sixth after they were beaten 3-1 at home by East Yorkshire Carnegie, Busilana Kashilembo scoring twice in his debut to secure the points for the visitors.

First half goals from Mitchell Dunne and Sam Fewkes ensured Hallam stay in eighth place with a 2-0 win over Retford United at Sandygate whilst a Lewis Bemrose double helped Winterton Rangers to a 5-1 victory at Nostell Miners Welfare that sees them climb into ninth.

AFC Emley and Armthorpe Welfare complete the top half of the table following home wins, Thabiso Magida striking twice for Emley in a 5-2 victory over bottom side Brigg Town and late goals saw Armthorpe beat Ollerton Town 2-0, Moziah Selassie and Gary Collier with their goals.

Mark Fereday got both of Dronfield Town's goals in their 2-2 home draw with Worsbrough Bridge Athletic and there was a 2-0 win on their own patch for Glasshoughton Welfare as Mitchell Wilshire and Robert Oldham secured the defeat of FC Bolsover to move them above their opponents into fourteenth.

Meanwhile, Grimsby Borough's home clash with Campion was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
