AROUND THE COUNTIES By STAN WILTON

Midweek 28th, 29th November.

Only four games during the week but plenty of goals, some perhaps better not dwelt upon as BARROW TOWN suffered a home Jelson Holmes Leicestershire FA Cup tie defeat at home to Heather St Johns by a 9-1 scoreline.
Better fare though from CLIFTON ALL WHITES who moved up the table thanks to a 6-1 home win over BORROWASH VICTORIA. It was a second half deluge of goals which finally led up to this end scoreline. The deadlock was not broken until moments before the half-time whistle when Corbi Brown gave the Whites their head start. There followed four move different scorers for Clifton in what sounds like a somewhat one-sided second half. The much-travelled Theo Smith increased the advantage five minutes into the second period. It was followed by a run of three goals in a fantastic ten minute spell when Connor Gray, Niall O’Rafferty from the penalty spot and Tyrell Shanon-Lewis brought the score up to five. Gray added a sixth for the home side in the 83rd minute and the Vics consolation goal came from Regan-Michael Bickerton from the penalty spot in the last minute.
SELSTON, in Wednesday evening’s only game, took over from Teversal at the top of the table thanks to a 3-1 home win over BLABY & WHETSTONE ATHLETIC. Once again it took until the stroke of half time for the deadlock to be broken when Grant Hacket netted to put Selston ahead. Early second half goals from Sean Gregory and Dominic Airey put the home side well on top before Joe Morrall got one back for Blaby with almost the last kick of the game.
In the Jenkins & Jenkins League Cup, RADFORD join those already through to the Quarter Finals after winning 3-0 at WEST BRIDGFORD. Two first half goals from Conor Moore and another early in the second period from Ravarn Antonio Jackson saw the visitors home.
