Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2021/22 #6

22nd August, 2021

Handsworth and Sherwood Colliery defeated Pitching In Northern Premier League opponents whilst Winterton Rangers also booked their place in the First Qualifying Round of the Emirates FA Cup with excellent victories on Saturday.

Handsworth were 5-2 winners at home to Stocksbridge Park Steels, having raced into a 3-1 lead by the interval courtesy of a quickfire double from Mitchell Dunne and an injury-time strike from Lee Bennett.

James Oliver grabbed their fourth early in the second period and, although their higher-ranked visitors pulled one back, Leon Howarth restored their three-goal advantage with four minutes remaining.

Colliery, meanwhile, defeated Sheffield 2-1 at the Home of Football Stadium, taking the lead through Lewis Belgrave midway through the first half before the hosts levelled on the half-hour.

But, a superb solo goal from William Norcross twelve minutes from time secured the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division side a well-deserved victory and Wayne Savage's side go into Monday's draw.

They will also be joined by Winterton who beat their United Counties League visitors Deeping Rangers 4-1, Josh Walker netting twice with Paul Grimes and Ryan Thompson also getting on the scoresheet on what was a wonderful afternoon at the MKM Stadium for Scott Hellewell's men.

Two of our sides drew 1-1 and will be involved in midweek replays with Luke Aldrich's 76th minute equaliser keeping Eccleshill United's hopes alive against North West Counties League visitors Charnock Richard.

And, Brandon Whitfield scored in the last ten minutes for Maltby Main to level with visitors Carlton Town and they now travel to the Northern Premier League side looking to cause an upset on Tuesday evening.

Goole AFC went down narrowly 1-0 at home to Pontefract Collieries whilst Knaresborough Town were beaten 5-0 at Liversedge and Emley AFC are out after a 2-0 loss at City of Liverpool.

Five matches were played in the Premier Division with Grimsby Borough and Garforth Town moving to the top of the table with victories.

Borough lead by a point after their 3-0 victory at Barton Town who drop into the bottom three, Lewis Collins and Tom Sawyer giving the Wilderness Boys a 2-0 half-time advantage before Richie Burdett got their third on 54 minutes.

Garforth defeated hosts Thackley 4-0, James Burgess, Samuel Leach and Charlie Marshall putting the Miners well in control by the half-hour mark and Joseph Colley added their fourth early in the second period.

Bottom side Athersley Recreation looked to be getting their first points of the season when they went 3-1 up by the hour thanks to Muhamet Gashi's penalty and a brace from Charlie Clegg.

But, their visitors Albion Sports netted three times in the last quarter of the game to take home a 4-3 victory.

There were two goals each for Tomas Poole and Declan Howe as Brett Marshall celebrated his 200th league game in charge of Staveley Miners Welfare with a 5-1 home victory over Hemsworth Miners Welfare.

And, Jack Normanton and Mohammed Qasim were the goalscorers in Silsden AFC's 2-0 win at Penistone Church that moves them up to ninth.

Overnight Division One leaders Nostell Miners Welfare were the team left without a game so their position at the summit was taken by Selby Town who won 6-4 against FC Humber United.

It was the Robins' "away" meeting against their tenants at the Farifax Plant Hire Stadium and it proved a thriller with Liam Flanagan and Flynn McNaughton both scoring twice for Selby whilst there were also goals for Ryan Gothard and Gracjan Klimczak.

Louis Blackwell's second hat-trick in as many games was not enough for the hosts who are proving to be division's entertainers as United have scored sixteen and conceded nineteen in five league matches.

Parkgate are up to third after second half goals from Aiden Salmons, Frederick Tracey, William Wraith and Zak Khalifa earned a 4-0 home win over Dronfield Town who slip to twentieth.

Jack Watson's eighteenth minute strike was the only goal of the game as Rossington Main climb to fourth following their home win over Armthorpe Welfare.

Worsbrough Bridge Athletic drop to fifth after they were held to a 1-1 draw by hosts Swallownest, Jack Appleyard's equaliser for the home side cancelling out Luke Francis' deadlock breaker.

Dayle Hutson and Martin Pembleton secured a 2-1 home win for Brigg Town over Hallam, moving the Zebras into the top six above Glasshoughton Welfare who succumbed to a 1-0 defeat at Harrogate Railway Athletic, Jacob Robertson with the first-half decider.

Rainworth Miners Welfare, Retford FC and Shirebrook Town all claimed home wins over near neighbours with Rainworth 2-1 victors against Clipstone, Kane Hempshall and Aaron Hewitt with their goals in the opening 17 minutes.

Matthew Robinson and Yaya Dembele scored as Retford defeated Ollerton Town 2-0 and Shirebrook got their first points of the season as they beat bottom side Teversal 3-1.

Kenan McKenzie's opener for the hosts was levelled by Cameron Pinnick in first half stoppage time but goals after the interval from Joshua Devereux and Sheldon Jordan ensured the win.

And, Jamie Forrester's 69th minute equaliser claimed a point for North Ferriby as they drew 1-1 at Hall Road Rangers after the hosts took an early lead through Sam Robinson.
