TEVERSAL returned to the top.
TEVERSAL returned to the top of the table with a 3-1 home win over BIRSTALL UNITED, but it was the visitors who scored first through Dan Jelley after six minutes. Dan Fletcher levelled night minutes later and James McCann gave Tevie the lead for the first time six minutes before the break. Dan Fletcher’s second goal of the game two minutes into the second half settled the destination of the points.
HOLBROOK SPORTS slipped from the pinnacle when Jordan Richardson’s 56th minute goal for KIMBERLEY MINERS WELFARE proved to be the only difference between the two teams when they met at Shaw Lane.
RADCLIFFE OLYMPIC go from bad to worse and shipped ten goals on their visit to RADFORD, for whom Errol Campbell scored five which included the fastest hat-trick of the season to day in eight second half minutes. Ryan Smith also managed a threesome but the time difference in his strikes was 66 minutes, beginning with the opener on six minutes and his last on 72. Joe Meakin and Ewan Sweeting completed the tally.
DUNKIRK kept up their 100% start to the season with victory over visiting ARNOLD TOWN at Lenton Lane. But they had to endure a late flurry from the Eagles to make sure that they retained the points after going three goals in front in the first 27 minutes. Steve Chaplin opened the scoring on ten minutes and a brace in as many minutes midway through the first half from Oliver Clark gave the Boatman a good start. Jawanza Grant scored on 72 and 84 minutes as the Eagles staged a second half come back but Dunkirk held out for the points in this keenly contested local derby.
ANSTEY NOMADS and newly-promoted SELSTON shared the spoils at Cropston Road with the goals in the 1-1 draw coming at opposite ends of the game. James Ireland gave Nomads the lead in the first minute and new signing from Heanor Town, Keenan Layton grabbed a point for Selston in the fifth minute of time added on at the end of the game.
AYLESTON PARK recorded a 3-1 home win over ASHBY IVANHOE with Chris Aycott scoring the only first half goal of the game. Mitchell Woodbine levelled for Ivanhoe five minutes into the second half before Lee Tyers on 65 minutes and Kieran Neat ten minutes from the end scored the goals which saw the points stay with the home side.
BLABY & WHETSTONE ATHLETIC recorded a 7-2 home win over BARROW TOWN, but not for the first time this season the home side caused confusion with the recording of the goalscorers. What is known is that they were three goals up by the ninth minute through a Toby Warner brace and one from Kai Tonge. Further goals were added by Leon Doughty (2) and Rikki Bates, but who scored the seventh remains unknown. Zak Ginvers got Barrow back into the game in the 18th minute, but the visitors then had to wait until the 72nd minute before James Pearce got their second by which time the game was virtually over.
