AROUND THE COUNTIES
By STAN WILTON
Two wins during the course of the week took SELSTON to the brink of winning the title in their second season in the League. Goals from Scott Taylor and Carl Moore from the penalty spot in three minutes just after the hour mark saw them come back from Jordan Black’s 48 th minute goal which had given TEVERSAL the lead on Tuesday evening. A stoppage time third from Joe Butler confirmed the win.
They followed this up with a 2-0 win over KIMBERLEY MINERS WELFARE on Saturday achieved by two goals from Rhys Dolan on 24 and 88 minutes.
NEWARK FLOWSERVE kept up the chase with a 2-0 win at BARROW TOWN,
but they are seven points adrift with four games to play. Tyrell Shannon-Lewis got their first goal on 69 minutes and Sam Agar their second deep into stoppage time at the end of the game as they finished the game with ten men, William Rawson seeing red for two yellow cards with five minutes remaining.
For SHERWOOD COLLIERY third place looks as good as it is going to get. It was always going to be a monumental task to catch the top two, but they were held to a goal-less draw by EASTWOOD COMMUNITY, who moved into fourth place as a result.
RADFORD are suffering a late season run of defeats and lost 3-2 at home to GRAHAM STREET PRIMS who came back from two goals down to win. Simon Hore on 18 minutes and William Daly just after the half hour had looked like pointing Radford to a comfortable win. Then Stephen Byrne pulled one back before the break and second half substitutes Bradley Scard and Kevin Morrow turned the game on its head.
HEANOR TOWN made it four on the trot with a 3-1 win at CLIPSTONE. Sam Birks was on target with a goal in each half and Jamie Sleigh weighed in with a stoppage time spot kick after Ollie Ashton had pulled one back for the hosts.
Midweek saw BORROWASH VICTORIA claim a point on their visit to INGLES with new boy Mitchell Woodbine on target in 58 and 64 minutes after Kyle Fowkes had given Ingles a 16 th minute lead. Joshua Bowley scraped a point for the hosts with his side’s second goal two minutes from the end.
CLIFTON ALL WHITES beat improving ARNOLD TOWN by the odd goal of three. Craig Meakin gave them the lead in first half stoppage time only for Gafaar Karim to restore parity on 63 minutes with his first goal for the club. Lamah Griggs broke the Eagles hearts as he notched the home winner two minutes from the end.
It was the same score at RAINWORTH MINERS WELFARE but this time visiting BELPER UNITED raced into a two goal lead through James Rushby in eleven minutes and Joshua Wright ten minutes later. The best the home side could offer was a goal which turned out to be no more than a consolation from Luke Morgan on 58 minutes.
A 64 th minute goal from Ryan Wheatley was enough for WEST BRIDGFORD to collect all three points from their home game against ASHBY IVANHOE.
In the remaining game TEVERSAL beat visiting INGLES 2-1 with Daniel Bryans getting the visitors 84th minute goals and Daniel Fullwood scoring in the 80th minuteand Matt Wilkinson getting the winner in stoppage time for Teversal.
