AROUND THE COUNTIES
By STAN WILTON
Three late goals gave BARROW TOWN the points on their visit to struggling ARNOLD TOWN. The Eagles were holding their own until Zak Ginvert struck in the 71st and 78th minutes and Harry Allcock made it three with four minutes left.
Goals galore at ASHBY IVANHOE in the highest scoring game of the day where SHERWOOD COLLIERY kept up their unbeaten start to the season. But with both sides conceding own goals it did help the goals total. Joel Earps put Ivanhoe ahead three minutes in only for Jamie York to level four minutes later. Lewis Weaver and a second from York put the visitors in control before the day’s first own goal on 42 minutes narrowed the scoreline again. But it was another defender’s unfortunate touch which restored the two goal Sherwood advantage by the break. Kerr Horn brought the score back to 3-4 in the 64th minute but Sherwood held on for the points.
BELPER UNITED enjoyed a good home win against a RAINWORTH MINERS WELFARE side who are finding results hard to come by at the moment. Adam Dring put United ahead midway through the first half and Sam Vickers increased the lead by the break. An own goal from Adam Jackson on the hour put United three up before Adam Jackson pulled one back with twenty minutes left. Sam Vickers hit a fourth for Belper to give them a handsome win.
Two first half goals from Rory Smith and Kieran Knight, the latter in stoppage time before the interval helped EASTWOOD COMMUNITY to bring down the colours of high flying GRAHAM STREET PRIMS who got one back through Joseph Hunt with eight minutes left but couldn’t share the spoils.
CLIPSTONE enjoyed further success on their travels when they won 4-0 at GEDLING MINERS WELFARE helped by three first half goals from Steve Sowter and a brace from Julian Topliss. Connor Nowaczyk scored the fourth with just two minutes of the game left.
Goals at the start and the end of the game gave RADFORD a 2-0 win at HEANOR TOWN and sent the Lions to their first defeat in six games. Simon Hore scored just two minutes in and Ryan Smith hit the second with a minute of the game remaining.
Billy Blackshaw was the INGLES hero as his 37th minute goal sent NEWARK FLOWSERVE slithering to a rare defeat. It was the only goal of a tight game.
SELSTON’s excellent start to the season continued and they remain unbeaten following a 3-1 home win over TEVERSAL. A brace of first half goals from Carl Moore on 30 and 44 minutes put the Villagers in front before Ben Cartwright got one back for Tevie on 72. Kane Hempsall, however, put the game beyond the visitors with a third home goal ten minutes from the end.
It looks like being a long hard season for WEST BRIDGFORD as they slumped to yet another home defeat against CLIFTON ALL WHITES. Mitch Williams broke the deadlock after Bridgford had held out for the first half hour. A second half brace from Jack Reid and one from Nathan Kelly saw the visitors home comfortably though.
