Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2018/19 #5

19th August, 2018

Liversedge and Nostell Miners Welfare continue to be the early leaders of the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division and Division One, respectively, after a full programme of matches took place on Saturday.

Sedge made it three wins out three this season, all on their travels, with a dramatic 3-2 victory at Knaresborough Town with Samuel Akeroyd's 89th minute penalty taking the points.

Earlier, Robert Worrall had given the home side a first-half lead, Liversedge then equalised and went ahead through Red Bates and Joe Walton before Daniel Thirkell looked to have made it a point apiece going into the last six minutes.

Maltby Main and Yorkshire Amateur are two points off the summit with Danny Frost's hat-trick at home to Bridlington Town helping Main to a 4-1 victory whilst the Ammers picked up a point with a 2-2 draw with visitors Penistone Church.

Ashley Flynn struck twice for the hosts before Kieran Ryan and Sam Scrivens struck in quick succession in the last twenty minutes to share the spoils.

Three teams are on six points in the early Premier Division table with Hemsworth Miners Welfare and Worksop Town picking up the maximum reward from their two games so far.

Sallu Dawo's 58th minute strike earned Hemsworth a 2-1 win at Handsworth Parramore after Jonathan Froggatt had cancelled out their opener from Bradley Dockerty.

Worksop were single-goal victors at Eccleshill United, Matthew Sykes finding the net on the hour mark to send their supporters home happy.

Garforth Town and Goole AFC got off the mark at the third attempt, Curtly Martin-Wyatt getting the only goal of the game in Garforth's home win over Athersley Recreation, whilst Billy Lawrie struck each side of the interval in Goole's 4-2 defeat of hosts Hall Road Rangers.

Athersley are one of two teams to remain pointless in the top flight, the other being Harrogate Railway Athletic who went down 5-0 to visitors Staveley Miners Welfare, Adam Baskerville bagging a hat-trick for the visitors who notched up their first league win of the season.

The other two Premier Division games ended in draws with Sam Denton's leveller for Albion Sports making it 1-1 at home to Bottesford Town who took an early lead through Jack McMenemy whilst there were no goals in Barton Town's trip to Thackley.

In Division One, Nostell head a group of three teams on twelve points after their 5-0 win at East Yorkshire Carnegie, Daniel Critchlow's hat-trick added to by Brad Kilburn and Kai Hancock.

There was also a hat-trick for Luke Anderson as Winterton Rangers beat visitors Ollerton Town 6-1 to remain behind Nostell on goal difference, Liam Nelthorpe, Elliot Broughton and Joel Shortland also netting whilst the only joy of the day for the away side came from Sean Dickinson early in the second half.

Worsbrough Bridge Athletic came from behind to win 2-1 at Skegness Town, Lee Morris' winner seventeen minutes from time ensuring their fourth win from their opening five matches.

Hot on their heels are Selby Town and Dronfield Town who both picked up home victories, Liam Flanagan's brace securing Selby's 2-0 victory over Campion whilst it was a 3-1 success for Dronfield over Hallam with Connor Chapell and Mark Fereday clinching the win in the last quarter of the game.

FC Bolsover remain in the basement after a 1-0 defeat at Rossington Main, their hosts claiming their first win of the season thanks to Lee Holmes' 72nd minute strike.

And, Bolsover are the only side without a point in Division One as Parkgate drew 1-1 at home with Harworth Colliery, the Steelmen pegged back by Sam Foulds after Martin Brissett had given the hosts a 57th minute lead.

Glasshoughton Welfare won 1-0 at Armthorpe Welfare through Jamie Simpson's winner near the hour mark but the match was marred by a double leg break for home striker Arran Hodgson and the NCEL wish him all the best in a speedy recovery.

Elsewhere, Samuel Dockwray was the match winner for Shirebrook Town as they beat visitors AFC Emley 2-1 and four goals were shared between hosts Grimsby Town and Swallownest, Marc Cooper rescuing a point for Borough with fifteen minutes to go.
