FA Vase Success for Eastwood CFC. Week ending 01/12/18
AROUND THE COUNTIES By STAN WILTON A crowd of 908 gathered at the New Manor Ground to watch the two local rivals battle it out for a place in the Fourth Round of the FA Vase. And the honours went to our side EASTWOOD COMMUNITY by the odd goal of three. Patrick Webb hit their first goal in the moments leading up to the interval and Kieran Knight put the issue beyond doubt with the winner three minutes into the second half. There was success in the Third Round of the Nottinghamshire FA Senior Cup as well as goals from Dan Meadows, Bradley Wells and a Sam Agar penalty put NEWARK FLOWSERVE through with a 3-1 scoreline away to Nottinghamshire Senior League side Stapelford Town. There were two major highlights in the league matches which took place. Perhaps of most significance was SELSTON facing their first league defeat of the season in their top-of-the-table clash at SHERWOOD COLLIERY. In a tight game Kieran Wells broke the deadlock in the 57th minute and Gareth Curtis confirmed that the points would be staying behind Debdale Park with a second eleven minutes later. And the fight back of the day came from strugglers WEST BRIDGFORD who found themselves two goals in arrears at KIMBERLEY MINERS WELFARE when Isaac Minott of 15 minutes and Jonathan Jebbison on 37 netted for the home side. Matthew Murphy pulled one back eight minutes into the second half and then two goals inside four minutes midway through the second half from Jack Oldham and Josepy Terry brought the visitors from the brink of defeat to a welcome win. RADFORD kept up the pressure on the leaders by beating ASHBY IVANHOE 2-1 at Selhurt Street. Thomas Black gave them an early taste of success by scoring in the seventh minute and it was then left to Simon Hore to sort of make the points safe ten minutes from the end. Kevin Spriggs pulled one back for the visitors in stoppage time at the end of the game but it was not enough. Four goals in the last seven minutes gave INGLES the day’s most surprising result in the league with a 6-0 success at GRAHAM STREET PRIMS. Kyle Fowkes and Sam Woolley had both scored for the visitors in the first half hour, then both completed hat-tricks in the last seven minutes. Fowkes scoring in 83 and 86 minutes and Woolley in 85 and 88. An Adon Spencer own goal helped CLIFTON ALL WHITES to record a 4-1 home success over CLIPSTONE. This came after Jahred Russell had given the Whites a first minute lead. Ash Way and Craig Meakin scored second half goals to add to these two with Sheldon McDonald’s 75th minute strike for Clipstone being a mere consolation. Daniel Page scored the only goal of the game as BARROW TOWN beat HEANOR TOWN at the Riverside. This came in the 42nd minute after Heanor had missed a penalty. TEVERSAL enjoyed a good win at the expense of luckless BORROWASH VICTORIA by 5-1 but the scoring did not commence until moments before the break when Aaron Williamson broke the deadlock. A second half hat-trick from Matt Wilkonson and a fifth goal from Anthony Rowley completed the home goals.Charlie Goodwin got the Borrowash goal. There was also a 5-1 home win for RAINWORTH MINERS WELFARE over ARNOLD TOWN with Aiden Harris on 20th Minute, Ethan Wiesztort 28 & 45+1 minutes, Scott Taylor 48 minutes & Nicholas Fry on 78 minutes, with Jordan Leeming replying with a late consolation for Arnold on 84 Minutes.
