AROUND THE COUNTIES
By STAN WILTON
Despite another curtailed league programme due to the weather the top three were all in action.
The top-of-the-table clash at TEVERSAL saw the home team come from behind to beat ANSTEY NOMADS 3-1. James Ireland had given Anstey the lead on 27 minutes, but it was a lead that was to last less than a minute as Matt Wilkinson levelled. Then goals early in the second half from Kurtis Bamford and Bradley Cox wrapped up a home win.
This result gave SELSTON the chance to reclaim second spot if they could overcome a visit to HOLWELL SPORTS, which they duly did. Ben Moore put them ahead midway through the first half and Lee Sutton confirmed the points with a second goal on 70 minutes.
KIMBERLEY MINERS WELFARE also took the opportunity to move up the table and were in fourth spot with games in hand at the end of play. Alex Doyle gave them the lead on half an hour but Connor Croft levelled for GEDLING MINERS WELFARE with a goal on his debut ten minutes later. Kimberley’s winner came eight minutes from the end from Aaron Mitchell.
Only two other games beat the weather. Substitute Jack Smith claimed all the points for RADFORD in their home game against CLIFTON ALL WHITES with just five minutes left. Earlier prolific scorer Tyrell Shannon-Lewis had given Clifton the lead five minutes before the break and Ryan Perkins had levelled for the home side seven minutes into the second half.
There was a welcome win for BARROW TOWN where late goals from Leighton Simmons and Nduoma Chilaka gave them victory in their game at AYLESTONE PARK. This game was played on the 3G pitch.
