Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2017/18 #53

15th February, 2018

Handsworth Parramore striker Jonathan Froggatt reached an incredible milestone as he struck twice in their 4-0 home Toolstation NCEL Premier Division win over Rainworth Miners Welfare on Tuesday night.

His brace, a goal before half-time and a late penalty, saw him pass the hundred goal mark for the Amber Parras in just 107 starts - a moment that was celebrated by fans, teammates and everyone involved with the club.

Earlier in the game, Jordan Turner had set the hosts on their way with a double in the opening half-hour in what was a comprehensive win that sees Handsworth tighten their grip on second place, fourteen points behind runaway leaders AFC Mansfield with two games in hand.

Only four matches survived the bad weather on Tuesday whilst the entire Wednesday fixture list was postponed as games succumbed to frozen and waterlogged pitches.

There was a surprise in Division One as Dronfield Town won 5-2 to deny hosts Yorkshire Amateur a chance to move up into the top three.

Chris Hitchings' own goal put the away side ahead on six minutes but Harrison Blakey and Brice Tiani turned the game round in the Ammers favour before Mark Fereday ensured it was 2-2 at the interval.

The second-half belonged to Dronfield as a Callum Mawbey brace and then a fifth from James Savage claimed a well deserved victory that moves them up to thirteenth in the table.

Two more League Cup Third Round ties were played with Division One leaders Knaresborough Town progressing at home to Premier Division highflyers Maltby Main despite being reduced to ten men.

The game was goalless going into extra-time, Joel Freeston then put the hosts ahead but Dean Conway forced a penalty shoot-out which Knaresborough won 6-5 in freezing conditions.

And, they are joined in the last sixteen by Pontefract Collieries who edged fellow Premier Division top five visitors Pickering Town 4-3 at the Harratts Nissan Stadium.

Billy Logan broke the deadlock for the Pikes but it was the Colls who led at the break through Kieran Scargill and Michael Dunn before extending their lead to 4-1 through a second from Dunn and one from Aaron Moxon on 59 minutes.

A couple of Lewis Taylor penalties brought the away side back into the game but the hosts held on to go through to the Fourth Round.
