AROUND THE COUNTIES
By STAN WILTON
Success at both ends of the table this week. BORROWASH VICTORIA steamed away from the lower reaches of the table with their second win of the season away to GEDLING MINERS WELFARE. Goals from a 23rd minute Matt Taylor penalty and Lewis Bennett after 62 minutes provided their success.
At the other end SELSTON as extended their 100% start to the season with their eighth win in eight outings sending WEST BRIDGFORD packing with a 7-0 defeat. Unfortunately for the Rowers they could not carry their midweek success into this game but they did hold out until the 52nd minute when Kane Hempsall put the table toppers ahead. The second half became a six goal onslaught though as Kenan Layton recorded his first hat-trick for the club and a brace from Scott Tylor and one from Ben Moore completed the scoring.
Meanwhile, SHERWOOD COLLIERY were losing their 100% record at the eighth attempt when they were held at home by Leicestershire side INGLES. Jordan Harris put the Colliers in front eight minutes into the second half but Jack Green levelled for the visitors six minutes from the end.
NEWARK FLOWSERVE’s good run of success continues as they sent RAINWORTH MINERS WELFARE home with no reward. Sam Agar, in the second minute, and Elliot King three minutes later gave the Newark a storming start. Bryan Dakouri pulled one back on the half hour but Agar’s second on 84 minutes completed the scoring and the points.
KIMBERLEY MINERS WELFARE recorded a 3-0 success at ARNOLD TOWN with goals from Sacha Markelic, Greg Tobin and Jordan Alls.
Another big win of the day was recorded by ASHBY IVANHOE who put seven past visiting CLIPSTONE. A Joel Earps hat-trick was the highlight of this performance and the other goals came from Angus Blair-Park, Joel Lawrence, Kerr Horn and a last minute Sam Harkin strike.
BELPER UNITED stormed into an early two goal lead through James Rushby in just nine minutes and Ryan Baker ten minutes later, but visiting TEVERSAL got back into the game with a Daniel O’Donnell goal five minutes into the second half but still ended up leaving the points behind because they couldn’t find the equaliser.
Plenty of goals too at Coronation Park where the second half provided a real goal feast. It was all square at the interval with no sign of what was to come in the second half. This after Ryan Smith had put visiting RADFORD in front in just the second minute and John Whitehurst had equalised for EASTWOOD COMMUNITY on the half hour mark. Simon Hore started the avalanche of goals by putting Radford back in front on 65 minutes only for Kaylum Mitchell to level within sixty seconds.Both Smith and Hore grabbed their second goals of the match to put the visitors 4-2 ahead before Harry Allen reduced the arrears with seven minutes left. Talk about a grandstand finish! Ryan Smith made it 5-3 and three minutes into stoppage time Ben Clark got a sixth. But Eastwood had the last word with Harry Allen’s second goal a minute later to make the final score 6-4 to the visitors.
BARROW TOWN came from behind to beat early season league leaders GRAHAM STREET PRIMS in Derby. Jordan Lee gave Prims an interval advantage which James Parker cancelled out four minutes into the second half. It then looked like Kevin Morrow’s 86th minute goal had secured the points for the Prims only for Sam Beaver to level again within aq minute and Blane Wakeman to pinch it for the visitors in stoppage time.
HEANOR TOWN went ahead after just three minutes at home to CLIFTON ALL WHITES through a Kyle Daley goal and the first half was played in a torrential downpour. Daley got a second for the Lions three minutes into the second half which secured them their fourth successive win despite Aiden Blewitt pulling one back ten minutes from the end to make it a nerve racking finish.
