AROUND THE COUNTIES
By STAN WILTON
Saturday 7th March 2020
There was no changing of positions at the top of the table where both Sherwood Colliery and Eastwood Community dropped points.
SHERWOOD COLLIERY’s top-of-the-table clash with HUCKNALL TOWN saw the points shared as the visitors came back with a 49th minute goal from Joe Butler after Gareth Curtis had given Colliery a 35th minute lead.
The real shocks was at Coronation Park where Bijan Pakrous gave KIMBERLEY MINERS WELFARE a second minute lead which they held onto for their first away win of the season. EASTWOOD COMMUNITY remain second but they have seven away games to play and only one at home.
This left Dunkirk and Heanor Town with catch up opportunities well taken.
First half goals from Jamie Sleigh, bringing his overall goals in club colours to 92, and Jordan Ball gave HEANOR TOWN all three points from their visit to RAINWORTH MINERS WELFARE, whilst
DUNKIRK had to show their resolve and come back from 3-1 down to win their fixture at CLIPSTONE. Clipstone quickly went two goals up through Declan Sorrell on 14 minutes and Jack Warwick three minutes later. Mason Frizelle pulled one back for the Boatmen midway through the half but Jason Foster’s third for the home side four minutes before the break restored their two goal advantage. Lewis Wilcox brought the game back to 3-2 on the hour and then came the grandstand finish with goals from Frizelle and winner from Jordan Alls to give Dunkirk a 4-3 win.
Kevin Morrow’s two goals in two minutes either side of the hour mark paved the way for GRAHAM STREET PRIMS to record their seventh home win of the season against a GEDLING MINERS WELFARE side who slipped to their fifth successive league defeat. They did, however, go ahead through Solomon Miller’s sixth minute goal neutralised by a Dominic Wilkinson goal two minutes before the break. Then Morrow struck twice. Joe Meakin brought the score back to 3-2 in the 71st minute but Gedling could not prevent another defeat.
There was a twelth minute lead for RADFORD given to them by Jake Richardson, but Ryan Whitehurst replied with a hat trick which included two in the second half and John Whitehurst scored the other as visiting WEST BRIDGFORD triumphed by 4-1.
The bottom-of-the-table clash at Langwith Road saw SHIREBROOK TOWN slip back into 18th position in the table as TEVERSAL leap-frogged them by coming back from a first minute goal by Kurtis Morley for the home side to take all three points with goals from Daniel Fullwood on 34 minutes and Liam Vardy’s winner on the hour.
The other game played saw CLIFTON ALL WHITES beat bottom rungers BORROWASH VICTORIA by Corbi Brown’s 70th minute goal.
