Central Midlands Roundup for November 19th

Saturday’s fixture list was slimmed down by the heavy midweek rain. The Black Dragon South division fared best, all five matches beating the conditions, Form team Mickleover RBL’s seven match winning run came to an end at Cromford and Wirksworth Town where an 85th minute Dec Jenkins penalty gave the home side all three points. Graham Street Prims good run continued as they came from behind to win 3-2 at Holbrook St Michaels. Holbrook were two up at half time with goals from Sam Smithurst and Gianluca Gandola but they fell away after the break allowing Prims to leave with the points, Lee Fell with two goals, Taylor Greig also scoring. Linby Colliery and Teversal drew 1-1. The hosts led with a Rory Smith goal in the 54th minute and must have thought that was enough to win it but Tevie had the last word, Jack Parkes getting the equaliser two minutes into added time. It was also 1-1 at Eagle Valley Arnold Town going ahead with a Jake Ogden goal in 24 minutes, visitors Derby Singh Brothers equalising through Scott Partington ten minutes later. The clash between the bottom two went the way of Nottingham FC who beat Ashland Rovers 2-0, Daniel Barumah scoring on 50 minutes, Sumayah Sanogo’s second not coming until four minutes from time.

Only two matches survived in the North division. There was a welcome point for Kiveton Miners Welfare who drew 3-3 with SJR Worksop. Caleb Fletcher with two and Chad Gibson were on target for Kiveton with the visitors matching them with a Hakim Johnson double and one from Taylor Thackery. Club Thorne Colliery picked up useful points with a 2-1 win at Staveley Reserves. Shay Evans Booth got Thorne’s opener in the 23rd minute , Callum Nicell doubling the lead with 56 played before Oli Brown pulled one back with 62 on the clock.

There was a surprise in the only outstanding Buckingham Insurance League Cup tie as Division One side Clipstone Reserves knocked out Glapwell 5-4 on penalties after a goalless 90 minutes.

A thriller at The Rail saw Retford FC snatch a 5-4 win against Sheffield FC in the Macron Store Nottingham Division One North, a result which puts Retford at the top of the table. Josh Fraiwald got a hat trick for Retford with Ash McEwan scoring the other two, while Sheffield’s goals came from Andy Glossop with two, Ross Hobson and an own goal. Harworth Colliery were 5-1 winners at Crowle Colts who are still searching for their first win of the season. The ever reliable Michael Wibberley ran in three for Harworth with Jacob Furness and Rowan Hill also finding the net., Crowle’s consolation coming from Chris Thornton. Bottesford Town had a 2-0 win against Hatfield thanks to an own goal on the hour and one from Ben Kirk five minutes from time. Bessacarr defeated NEFA 5-1. Jordan Wilkinson’s brace was added to by James Francis, Anthony Shuka and Callum Bojcic with Kyle Dunston getting one for the visitors.

Woodhouse Colts went to town in a one-sided game at Ashland Rovers. The final score was 9-0, Danny Barke with four goals, Alfie Gaughan adding a hat trick and Jayden Bull’s two finishing the rout. Blidworth Welfare returned with the recent turmoil with a convincing 4-0 defeat of Long Bennington with a Jack Reeves double and one for Jack Warner with an own goal completing the scoring. There were eight goals in Mansfield Hosiery Mills’ match with Linby Colliery, the home side winning 5-3. The Millers’ goals were shared by Liam Jepson, Archie Ward, Brandon Arnold, Isaac Godinho and Kyle Crook with Linby replying through Tom Williams (2) and Cal Wainwright.

A 3-3 draw at Mayfield was enough for Kilburn to take over top spot in Division One West on goal difference from Melbourne Dynamo whose match was called off. Goals for Kilburn came from Jordan Mighty with two and Connor Barnes. For Mayfield Harry Breeze, Harry Zona and Sam Handley all found the back of the net. Castle Donington shaded their match at Rowsley 86 by four goals to three. Rowsley got off to the perfect start with two goals in the first four minutes, Kye Wood and Noah Evans scoring. Scott Bucknell and Ross Simms brought the scores level by the half hour. Rowsley took the lead again with Wood’s second but second half goals from Tom Moore and Archie Moore clinched for Castle Donington. The other match saw Heanor Town beat Belper United 6-0 but I have received no details.

Just two County Cup ties this week. Harworth colliery departed the Sheffield FA Senior Cup, going down to a single goal from visitors Wombwell Town. Better news in the Junior Cup where Elite AFC beat Adwick Park Forest 6-0. There were two goals each for Sammy Amissah and Travis Gordon and one apiece from Brody Burden and Bartek Chrobak.
