Saturday proved to be another afternoon packed full of goals and excitement in the Toolstation NCEL as all but two of our sides were involved in league action.
There was a full programme in the Premier Division whilst there was one postponement in Division One - Glasshoughton Welfare's trip to Armthorpe Welfare will be played at a later date following the sudden passing of Glasshoughton's club secretary Frank MacLachlan in midweek.
The top flight saw Yorkshire Amateur
keep their fine start to the season going as they made it three wins out of three by dispatching visitors Silsden AFC
Roy Fogarty, Fernando Moke and Daniel Naidole had the Ammers 3-1 up at the break, with Shaun Airey netting for their opponents, before Naidole and Fogarty popped up again early in the second period to extend their lead to four goals.
Antony Brown pulled one back for the away side from the penalty spot but Ashley Flynn also struck from twelve yards for the hosts' sixth fourteen minutes from time.
There were also half-a-dozen goals for Albion Sports
who, thanks to a hat-trick from Daniel Facey and one each from Ben McCready, Niall Heaton and Finn Donovan, ran out 6-2 home winners over Bottesford Town
who have conceded thirteen in their opening two games.
The Ammers and the Lions were not the top scorers on the day, though, as that accolade went to Garforth Town
as, courtesy of four goals from Charlie Marshall, they romped to a 7-2 victory at Goole AFC
Their tally was completed in the final twenty minutes by Lee Turner, Jack Lazenby and Sam Barker in a game that was 2-2 at the interval, Reagan Waud netting twice for the hosting Vikings.
Staveley Miners Welfare
were the only other Premier Division winners on their travels as Mitchell Langton and Reece Clegg struck late on in a 2-0 victory at Athersley Recreation
Amongst those prevailing at home were Bridlington Town
who defeated Thackley
3-1, Daniel Earl scoring all of the Seasiders' goals in the last quarter of the game after James Rothel had given the Dennyboys a 32nd minute breakthrough.
Layton Swaine grabbed an 84th minute winner for Hemsworth Miners Welfare
in a 2-1 home victory over Knaresborough Town
whilst Joseph Gaughan struck twice in Liversedge
's 4-2 triumph against Barton Town
at the Clayborn Ground.
And, Brett Lovell left it even later to claim a 2-1 win for Penistone Church
at the expense of visitors Eccleshill United
as Church, the only side yet to have played a league game, began their campaign with three points.
Bradley Beatson netted an injury-time penalty to snatch a point in a 2-2 home draw for Maltby Main
against the league's FA Cup heroes AFC Mansfield
whilst Marley Grant popped up in stoppage time for Handsworth
to share the spoils in their game by the same scoreline at Grimsby Borough
In Division One, Aiden Kirby struck twice for Campion
who, like Yorkshire Amateur, are top of the early tables with three straight victories, as they saw off visitors Dronfield Town
Sean Hunter, Aidan Day and Mohammed Qasim completed their scoring whilst Charlie Stewart and Callum Mawbey added respectability to the scoreline for the away side in the last fifteen minutes.
were the division's highest scorers as Adam Scott's hat-trick, added to by Zach Casburn, William Tomlinson and George White, saw them win 6-2 at home to East Hull
and Skegness Town
all made home advantage count with Jamie Forrester, Danny Buttle and Scott Phillips helping to notch up a 3-1 win over Hall Road Rangers
for North Ferriby.
Frederick Tracey scored a brace in Parkgate's 4-0 triumph over Worsbrough Bridge Athletic
, and it was a single-goal victory for Skegness as Ben Davison converted a 32nd minute decider against Hallam
at the Vertigo Stadium.
Josh Walker's quickfire double towards the end of the first period saw Winterton Rangers
prevail 2-0 at Nostell Miners Welfare
whilst Jason Pembleton's 84th minute strike grabbed a 2-1 victory for Brigg Town
at Harrogate Railway Athletic
took the points in a 3-2 win at Selby Town
, Thomas Cropper with the winner six minutes from time after they had let a two-goal advantage slip just after the start of the second half.
And, in the day's only goalless game, it was stalemate for Rossington Main
at home to Emley AFC
