2nd September, 2018

Ten Toolstation NCEL sides progressed to the next stage of this season's Buildbase FA Vase at the weekend whilst Hemsworth Miners Welfare and Winterton Rangers went to the top of the Premier Division and Division One, respectively.

Swallownest were one of five Division One teams to win their First Round Qualifying ties on Saturday as they won 1-0 at home to a side one step above them in the National League System, Abbey Hey, Thomas Cropper netting the only goal of the game in the 34th minute.

Three goals for Parkgate in extra-time gave them a 5-2 victory at Green Lane over Hallmark Security Football League Division One North visitors Chadderton, Andrew Fox completing his hat-trick with two of them in an eventful match that saw both sides reduced to ten men.

Two goals each from Jordan Smith and William Britton saw Skegness Town beat Central Midlands League visitors Clay Cross Town 4-1 at the Vertigo Stadium whilst a Conor Higginson penalty was the winner in Ollerton Town's 1-0 home victory over fellow Step 6 side New Mills.

And, Worsbrough Bridge Athletic prevailed in the only all-NCEL Division One tie as Jack Wilson and Fidel Mhlolo's strikes either side of the interval gave them a 2-1 win at Armthorpe Welfare, Jason Kearsley scoring a 79th minute consolation for the hosts.

Of the five Premier Division victors, two of them beat Division One opposition with a brace for Jahmal Riley and Joe Pugh helping Staveley Miners Welfare to a 5-0 defeat of home side Selby Town and Worksop Town saw off visitors Grimsby Borough 2-1.

Matthew Sykes' early strike for the Tigers was added to in the 51st minute by Steven Woolley before Borough got themselves back into the tie through Adam Drury on the hour mark.

The other three top flight sides who progressed all did so on their own turf with Maltby Main securing the most convincing scoreline as a Danny Frost double set them on their way to a 5-1 victory over Ashton Athletic.

Luke Robinson also scored twice in Thackley's 3-2 defeat of Thornaby and Barton Town went through 3-1 over AFC Liverpool with Tom Bennett, William Waudby and Joshua Tennant finding the net for the Swans.

There will be one midweek replay after 120 minutes could not separate Bottesford Town or hosts Leicester Road, Craig Bridge's 22nd minute penalty levelling things for the Poachers in a game that finished 1-1 and they will play again on Wednesday evening.

Elsewhere, there was disappointment at home for Eccleshill United, Goole AFC and Harrogate Railway Athletic to follow on from a Friday night exit for AFC Emley on their own patch.

And, those who went out on their travels to non-NCEL opposition were Athersley Recreation, Campion, Harworth Colliery, Knaresborough Town, Liversedge, Nostell Miners Welfare, Penistone Church and Yorkshire Amateur.

In the Premier Division, Hemsworth went to the summit with a 2-0 win at Albion Sports, Bradley Dockerty's first-half strike added to in the second period by Jed Rashid to make it four wins out of their opening five league matches.

For Sports, it was a double blow after their midweek exit from the Emirates FA Cup with a 4-0 loss at Guisborough Town in their Preliminary Round Replay.

Garforth Town, meanwhile, climbed up to seventh spot as they dispatched next-to-bottom visitors Hall Road Rangers 4-1.

Aodhan Brownlee's first period opener was cancelled out by Conner Harman for Rangers towards the start of the second period before a Mark Ferguson brace and a Devonte Newman-Morton penalty confirmed the victory for the Miners.

In Division One, there was one midweek game with Gareth Griffiths' 85th-minute winner securing all three points for hosts Hallam in a 1-0 victory over Parkgate on Tuesday.

Saturday saw Winterton storm to top spot as they beat FC Bolsover 6-1, Adam Lee with a hat-trick whilst there two for Luke Anderson and William Peers concluded the scoring with Jake Morrison netting for the away side who remain in the basement.

And, Shirebrook Town move up to seventh following a 4-0 victory at Rossington Main who ended the game with ten men following the sending-off of keeper Joshua Diggles midway through the second half.

An early breakthrough from Mark Robinson was added to by a Declan Brewin penalty and a Carter Widdowson goal before Diggles' departure and then Samuel Martin added the away side's fourth with thirteen minutes remaining.
