There were just three midweek matches this week with one each in the North, South and division one south.
Tuesday night saw Dronfield Town Reserves face Collingham in the Black Dragon Badges North division. Dronfield, despite having a lot of pressure in the first half, found the young Collingham side hard to break down with keeper Josh Wilson making several fine saves. The home side’s frustration was complete when they failed to convert a penalty midway through the second half, the match finishing goalless.
Sherwood Colliery Reserves finally got their season underway on Wednesday in the South division, registering a 3-2 win over Arnold Town in a match full of incident. Sherwood had a blistering start to the game with Liam West striking in the 13th and 16th minutes. The Wood went three up on 33 minutes, West again the instigator, his shot hitting the post allowing Max Curzon to slot in the rebound. Things got worse for the visitors when they were reduced to ten men in the 63rd minute, the player receiving a second yellow. As the caution count rose, Arnold found a way back into the game, Joe Butler pulling a goal back fifteen minutes from time. Sub Andy Start added a second in the 84th minute and Arnold would have got at least a share of the points had it not been for an inspired performance from Sherwood keeper Andy Francis who pulled off a succession of outstanding saves.
In Division One South, Matt Leask was Wirksworth Ivanhoe’s match winner in a 4-1 defeat of Heanor Town at the Town Ground, scoring twice in the first eight minutes, Lucas Brough getting a third with 35 played. Leask completed his hat trick on 71 minutes with Kieron Smith getting a consolation for Heanor ten minutes from the end.
