Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2018/19 #7

26th August, 2018

Four Toolstation NCEL sides saw off Evo-Stik Northern Premier League opposition as eight of our teams progressed in the Emirates FA Cup at the weekend.

Parkgate were the biggest giantkillers as the Division One side won 2-0 at Brighouse Town in their Preliminary Round tie, Tim Whittaker and Elliott Simpson netting in the first period against their hosts who are two steps above them in the National League System.

Bottesford Town and Maltby Main also saw off higher opposition with Bottesford 4-2 winners at Loughborough Dynamo having taken a 2-0 half-time lead thanks to goals from Jack McMenemy and Dayle Hutson.

McMenemy made it 3-0 before the hosts pulled it back to 3-2 only for Craig Bridge to make sure of the victory in stoppage time.

Main, meanwhile, came from behind at Runcorn Linnets, Ross Duggan and Danny Frost ensuring a 2-1 win that puts the Muglet Lane side into Tuesday's First Qualifying Round draw.

Worksop Town joined them on Sunday by beating Carlton Town by the same scoreline in their tie at the King of Soho Stadium, Kyle Jordan's penalty and Steve Woolley's strike sending them through after the visitors had taken an early lead.

Selby Town could still become the fifth side to beat a Step 4 side after their 1-1 draw at Kendal Town, Carl Stewart's sixteenth-minute opener was cancelled out by the hosts in the second period to force a replay that will take place a week on Tuesday.

Of the four other winners on Saturday, Grimsby Borough defeated a side one division above them as Daniel Trott's 80th minute strike saw off Total Motion Midlands League Premier Division outfit Long Eaton United at the Bradley Football Development Centre.

Garforth Town progressed at the expense of fellow NCEL Premier Division hosts Bridlington Town, Albert Ibrahimi's injury-time winner securing a 2-1 win for the Miners after the sides had swapped penalties.

A Joshua Garbutt hat-trick helped Knaresborough Town to a 5-1 home defeat of Ebac Northern League side Blyth in a match between two Step 5 teams.

And, Staveley Miners Welfare dispatched Future Lions United Counties League outfit Lutterworth Town 3-0 with goals from Adam Baskerville, Jahmal Riley and Robson Doolan.

Albion Sports will travel to former NCEL side Guisborough Town on Wednesday after a 2-2 home draw, Paul Beesley and Jamal Stewart twice putting the Lions ahead whilst there were exits for Handsworth Parramore, Liversedge and Penistone Church.

Elsewhere, there were three matches played in the First Round of the League Cup and two Premier Division games also took place.

Ollerton Town, Winterton Rangers and Shirebrook Town all made it through to the Third Round of the cup with victories against fellow Division One sides.

Ollerton went behind to James Webb's early opener at East Yorkshire Carnegie but their top scorer Gavin King levelled from the penalty spot midway through the first period and then added a second just before half-time as the visitors chalked up a 2-1 win.

Winterton made it six victories out of six in August as they beat hosts Harworth Colliery 4-1, Kieran Wressell, Oliver Fisher-Powell, Jacob Wilson and Scott Hellewell with their goals whilst Ainsley Finney scored on his debut for the home side.

And, a Daniel Williams first-half brace helped Shirebrook on their way to a 3-0 victory over Rossington Main at Langwith Road with Ben Charlesworth completing the scoring with nine minutes remaining.

In the Premier Division, Barton Town zoomed up nine places to seventh as they won 3-1 at home to Goole AFC in a game that was 1-1 at the interval after the Swans' Daniel Chambers saw his goal cancelled out by Oliver Smith for the Vikings.

The home side then struck twice in the second period through a Thomas Waudby penalty and then Joshua Tennant's strike as the game went into stoppage time.

And, Hemsworth Miners Welfare are up to fourth after goals in the last ten minutes from Luke Danville and Bradley Dockerty grabbed them a 4-2 win over visitors Harrogate Railway Athletic.

Joshua Underwood had given the Rail an early lead who found themselves 2-1 down at the break thanks to goals for Nash Connolly and Andrew Higgins, only for Sean Hunter to level before Hemsworth struck twice in quick succession late on to take all three points.
