The weekly roundup for November 6th

By Richard Lane

All the week's results and scorers from the Central Midlands

There was just one midweek match which resulted in a 2-0 win for Clay Cross Town against Retford FC Development in the Abacus Lighting Floodlit Cup. Scorers for the Millers were Jordan Hendley with a 23rd minute penalty and Ashley Grayson ten minutes from time.

The weekend’s games began with a second heavy home defeat in a week for Harworth Colliery, this time by St Josephs Rockware who won 5-1. Taylor Thackery got a hat trick for the visitors and there was a goal each for Ben Brown and Scott Wesley with Ashley McEwan scoring for Harworth.

The top six sides in the Premier North division were up against each other on Saturday. Thorne Colliery recorded their third 1-0 win in a row, a second half penalty from Shay Evans-Booth proving enough to take the points against Dinnington Town. Clay Cross Town travelled to Retford United, coming away with a 2-1 win. Igor Mlynarski gave Retford the lead on 22 minutes which was equalised by Josh Parfitt ten minutes later. The deciding goal came after 54 minutes from Montelle Kamara. Newark Town recovered from last week’s blip with a 3-0 defeat of Glapwell. Jackson Buckthorpe opened the scoring in the 17th minute, Mason Rhiney adding number two three minutes into the second half, debutant Sam Newell wrapping up the points in added time. Kiveton Miners Welfare had a comfortable 7-2 win over struggling AFC Phoenix. Two goals from Chris Savage and one for James Savage gave them a three goal interval lead, Phoenix’s task being made harder by an early red card. Savage completed his hat trick, Louis Mattimore and Jordan Willis made it six before George Armitage pulled one back for the visitors. Daniel Neath got the final goal for Kiveton but Ildephonse Hussain had the last word for Phoenix with a late penalty. In contrast an 85th minute strike from Sheffield Reserves’ Joe Harvey was decisive as they took the points against Dearne & District.

In the Premier South division Blidworth Welfare came from behind to beat Long Eaton Community 3-2 Luke Bacon put them in front but two goals from Reece Widdowson gave the advantage to the visitors before Adie Harris and Lee Townsend turned the game round for Blidworth. The last unbeaten record in the two senior divisions finally bit the dust as Pinxton went down to a 3-0 defeat at Mickleover RBL, San Vickers (2) and Liam Oliver doing the damage. Mickleover Reserves unsurprisingly beat bottom side Arnold Town, the final score 8-1. Scorers for Mickleover were Josh Satchwell, Fin Barker and Ben Horleston with two each, Jude Ayetine and Will Robinson. South Normanton Athletic and Linby Colliery drew 1-1 at Lees Lane, Matt Fowler putting the Shiners in front on 25 minutes, Ben Jones levelling the scores with 53 minutes on the clock. Sherwood Colliery Reserves won 5-1 at Hilton Harriers, four of the goals coming in the second half, Luke Black and Luke Jepson scoring two apiece, Leighton Platts with the other goal. Alistair Broughton, Joel Cain and Jorge Knowles were Holbrook St Michaels’ scorers in their 3-2 win against Ashland Rovers for whom Ben Jones scored twice. Rowsley 86 also won 3-2 against Mansfield Hosiery Mills with Andrew Roome, Jordan Watts and Noah Evans all on target, Jack Riley and Jacob Reeve with the visitors reply. Wirksworth Ivanhoe handed out a 5-0 defeat to Teversal Reserves, Tom Mellor getting a hat trick, Lucas Brough and Ryan Baldwin with one each.
In the Macron Store Nottingham Division One North Stuart Needham and Tom Collier gave Harworth Colliery a 2-0 win at Bessacarr. Retford FC and Thorne Colliery drew 2-2 at the Rail, Gaz Campion and Sam Clark’s goals for Retford being answered by Callum Verhees and George Barraclough. Ollie Bradbury’s brace of goals gave 780 JLC a 2-1 win at Ollerton Town whose goal came from Nathan Bell while Bottesford Town had a 3-1 win at Dearne & District, the goals scored by rk, Louis Scott and Max Williamson, Danny Speight replying for Dearne.

Max Radford scored twice for Woodhouse Colts in their 5-0 defeat of Holbrook St Michaels in Division One Central, Joss Kowalski, Ross Richmond and Robyn Hall adding one apiece. Ashland Rovers got their first points of the season and also more than doubled their goal tally as they beat South Normanton 5-2. Jacob Oakland got a hat trick with Harvey Lane and Owen Walker also on the scoresheet, Jordan Adams and James Fletcher with the goals for the Shiners.

In Division One South Melbourne Dynamo went to Linby Colliery and returned with a 3-2 win, their goals scored by James Smith, Ben Cooke and Carl Allsopp with Travell Lindo and Connor Gillan replying for Linby. It was also 3-2 at PMG Academy where the hosts went down to Derby Singh Brothers.
