Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2018/19 #32

9th December, 2018

The last remaining Toolstation NCEL side in this season's Buildbase FA Vase bowed out of the competition on Saturday as Winterton Rangers were beaten 2-0 by Irlam in their Third Round tie.

A penalty early in the second period put the Hallmark Security League outfit in front and they confirmed their passage into the next stage with twelve minutes remaining in a game that had been switched to Winterton Rangers' West Street ground after the previous week's abandonment due to floodlight failure.

Elsewhere, four games were called off with Premier Division matches at Eccleshill United, Liversedge and Staveley Miners Welfare, and the Division One clash at Selby Town all falling victim of recent bad weather.

There was no doubt, meanwhile, what ended up being the encounter of the day as Knaresborough Town came away from Barton Town with a 6-4 victory after the hosts had staged a remarkable comeback.

The visitors raced into a 4-0 lead with Joshua Garbutt's second hat-trick in as many games, along with a Brad Walker strike, putting them seemingly in full control by the 32nd minute.

Barton then sparked into life with two goals immediately after the interval from Matthew Plummer and Luke Aldrich before Nicky McNamara and Gareth Barlow struck for the Swans to make it 4-4 with eight minutes to go.

But, Barlow, who had an eventful afternoon after coming on as a substitute, then headed into his own net to restore Knaresborough's lead and Walker made sure of the win for the away side with his second in stoppage time.

Knaresborough stay third but have closed the gap on leaders Yorkshire Amateur to ten points after the table-toppers drew 1-1 at home with Worksop Town, Steven Wankiewicz scoring at both ends to first gift the Ammers a 48th minute lead and then his equaliser on 71 took home a point for the Tigers.

Second-placed Penistone Church were 2-1 home winners over Maltby Main, Kieran Ryan with the winner twelve minutes from time after Steven Hopewell had just brought the visitors back level.

Hemsworth Miners Welfare and Handsworth Parramore climb up into fourth and fifth, respectively, with victories.

Bradley Dockerty scored four of Hemsworth's 6-1 victory at Garforth Town with Sam Jones netting the other two whilst Mitchell Hamilton got the home side's solitary goal.

And, the Amber Parras were eventual 3-2 winners at home to Hall Road Rangers after the visitors were another side to stage a thrilling comeback, Reagan Waud and Louis Bruce bringing them back to 2-2 in the last ten minutes after Ryan Carroll and Waide Fairhurst had netted for the hosts.

Lee Cooksey became the hero at the King of Soho Stadium as he popped up in the 89th minute to claim all three points for Handsworth.

Bridlington Town drop to sixth after they went down 4-0 at home to Thackley who move up into fifteenth thanks to goals from James Ngoe, Paul Whitley, Daniel Broadbent and Jordan Hines.

And, next-to-bottom Harrogate Railway Athletic picked up a point on their travels in a 2-2 draw at Athersley Recreation but will be disappointed not to have gone home with more having led 2-0 at the interval.

Grimsby Borough were the only one of the three leading sides to be in action but they missed out on a chance to go top of Division One as they went down 4-2 at home to Ollerton Town who picked up a priceless three points.

The visitors twice took the lead through Gavin King but were pegged back by Marc Cooper on both occasions before Lewis Bingham and Sean Dickinson scored to claim a win that, although it keeps Ollerton in eighteenth, means they are now six points clear of the relegation zone.

Jack Wilson, Jack Mawson and Liam Owen scored for Worsbrough Bridge Athletic who are now fourth after their 3-1 victory at Glasshoughton Welfare whilst Hallam are up into fifth after Kieran Watson's hat-trick helped them to a 5-0 defeat of hosts Armthorpe Welfare.

A goalless draw sees Nostell Miners Welfare fall to seventh, a place above their visitors Dronfield Town whilst Rossington Main leap into tenth after two late goals from Lee Holmes helped them to a 3-1 home win over East Yorkshire Carnegie.

Shirebrook Town stay eleventh despite a 2-1 home loss to Swallownest who are now fourteenth, Alex Lill with both of the visitors' goals sandwiching a Ben Burbanks equaliser.

Parkgate and Skegness Town continued their movement away from the bottom two with home victories, Simon Harrison, Reece Hands, Zak Khalifa and Bruno Holden netting for Parkgate in their 4-1 win over FC Bolsover.

And, Skegness dispatched AFC Emley 3-0 thanks to goals from Daniel Stevens, James Wroot and William Britton.

Meanwhile, only one midweek match survived the wet weather as Shirebrook Town won 4-1 at home to Rossington Main in Division One on Tuesday evening.

Shirebrook were 4-0 up after just eighteen minutes, Samuel Martin, Thomas Widdowson twice, and George Simpson claiming a whirlwind start for the Langwith Road side before Lee Holmes' 42nd minute penalty concluded the scoring.
