Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2020/21 #20

27th December, 2020

Athersley Recreation received the perfect Christmas present on Boxing Day as they picked up their first points of the season in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division.

Lee Garside's fifth-minute strike was enough to earn them a 1-0 victory at home to Hemsworth Miners Welfare to get the Sheerien Park side off the mark at the tenth attempt although they still remain bottom of the table.

It was one of five Premier Division games that was played on an afternoon that saw Bridlington Town climb up into second spot with a 4-1 win at fourteenth-placed Goole AFC.

Thomas Waudby's early double set them on their way although a Benn Lewis own goal brought the Vikings back into the game in the twentieth minute.

Daniel Earl restored the Seasiders' two-goal cushion by the interval and Billy Logan ensured the points with their fourth towards the start of the second period.

Maltby Main also won on their travels, a 5-2 victory at next-to-bottom Bottesford Town lifting them into fifth after they raced into a four-goal lead by half-time.

Bailey Hobson's breakthrough was added to by Jonathan Hill and then twice by Steven McDonnell before Jamie Austin netted their fifth in the opening minute of the second half.

Jack Siddall opened Bottesford's account on 62 and Hashlee Cranidge got their second in stoppage time but the Poachers remain on four points whilst Maltby climb above AFC Mansfield who were held to a 2-2 home draw by Silsden AFC.

The Bulls led twice through Josh Wilde and Ross Duggan but were pegged back on both occasions by Liam Hudson with three of the goals coming in the first twelve minutes.

And, Thackley move out of the bottom four after Ryan Basi grabbed the only goal of the game in their home victory over Eccleshill United who stay eleventh.

Winterton Rangers are third in Division One following their 5-0 defeat of visitors East Hull, Paul Grimes, Josh Walker and Gareth Barlow giving them a three-goal lead by the 23rd minute.

After the break, Josh Walker completed his brace from the penalty spot and Daniel Walker concluded the scoring midway through the second half.

Rangers leapfrog Brigg Town who conceded twice in the last ten minutes to lose 3-1 at home to Skegness Town, Daniel Brooks and Ben Davison doing the damage after George Hobbins' own goal had cancelled the away side's opener from Gary King.

Jason Stokes' 89th minute equaliser snatched a point for Rossington Main in a 1-1 draw at Armthorpe Welfare to move Main up into sixth spot whilst the hosts, who took the lead through Steven Garner, climb to fourteenth.

Glasshoughton Welfare are up to thirteenth after Ashley Bell, Mark Ferguson and Nathan Perks claimed a 3-1 home win over Nostell Miners Welfare, Louis Penny-Larter with the away side's consolation.

Selby Town's home match with Harrogate Railway Athletic was abandoned at half-time due to power failure with the score at 0-0 whilst Parkgate's trip to Swallownest was postponed as a COVID-19 precaution.
