Transcript of BallsMania Issue 66



    with the 'Team of the Month' award for January, before their game at home against Southwell City, it seemed that the 'hoodoo' may strike with the match goalless at half time, but the home team turned on the style in the second half and goals by Carl Russo (2) and Dominic Jones gave Clipstone a 3-0 victory. In the mid table battle at Pinxton, it was the visitors, Yorkshire Main who took the points, two second half goals by Sam Agar giving Main a 2-0 win. Kinsley Boys came from a goal down at half time, to win 2-1 at Blidworth Welfare. Jamie Senior scored for Blidworth. John Lord and Callum Stapleton on target for Kinsley. The winner from Stapleton being scored in the 88th minute. Welcome points for Hatfield Main, they accounted for struggling Rolls Royce Leisure, the home team winning 4-1. Lee Winterman (2), Craig Wigglesworth and an own goal the Hatfield marksmen. Gary Foster scored the Rolls goal. Harrowby United made it back to back wins against Nettleham, winning 3-2, a result that took the home team out of the relegation positions, changing places with the visitors. Nettleham took the lead through Stave Mason but a penalty converted by Paul Chappell made it 1-1 at half time. The home team had the better of the second half and two goals by Simon Bollard put United 3-1 in front. Nettleham hit back and pulled a goal back through Javin Pillay but the home team held on to take three vital points. With leaders Westella & Willerby playing in the cup, it gave a chance for the clubs below them, to reduce the East Riding clubs lead at the top of the table. Second placed Parramore Sports, took advantage Report continued on page 7

Dan Gorman led the way with a brace, Matthew Fyvie adding the other goal. Chris Self scored a consolation goal for Newark Town. In a Second round Phoenix Trophies Reserves League Cup tie, a goal by Tim Aspinall in the 40th minute, was good enough to take Mickleover Sports Reserves through to the next round, at the expense of Kiveton Park Reserves. In the same competition but this time in a Quarter Final encounter, again it was the away team that triumphed, Holbrook Miners Welfare Reserves winning 3-2 at Yorkshire Main Reserves. The home team led 2-0 at half time with two goals by Ryan White but Holbrook took command in the second half, scoring through Matthew Boyles and a brace from Tom Jinks, one being a penalty. In the Buckingham Insurance Supreme Division, Calverton Miners Welfare moved to within a point of the leaders, Harworth Colliery Institute. Harworth where without a match, whilst Calverton turned in an excellent performance against Ollerton Town, goals by Mark Jago, Craig Boulton and Warren Hatfield, gave Graham Walker's side a 3-0 victory. A shock for third placed Sutton Town AFC, they where surprising held to a goalless draw, at home, by bottom club, Kimberley Town. Clipstone Welfare where presented

  • Notts County suffered their first defeat since the end of January with a 2-0 defeat at Bury this afternoon. County were unfortunate to find themselves a goal down at the break which came from Bury's leading scorer Andy Bishop on forty minutes at Gigg Lane. The win was secured late on through defender Efe Sodje's close-range finish. Richard Butcher was handed his first start in three months at Gigg Lane after recovering from a metatarsal injury; he replaced Nat Wedderburn in the middle of the park in the only change from the side that started at Macclesfield in midweek. Michael Johnson was fit enough to start after picking up a head injury at Macclesfield while leading scorer Jamie Forrester was named on the bench after recovering from a toe injury that forced him to miss the win over Barnet and the Macclesfield game. In their black and white stripes County got the game underway and

    started positively by taking the game to the Shakers. A nice move between Forte and Butcher created a pocket of space on the edge of the area for the returning midfielder to advance towards goal but Cresswell did well for Bury to hold off Butcher and clear his lines. Bury almost opened the scoring on fourteen minutes from a corner but Delroy Facey was perfected placed at the far post to clear Andy Bishop's glancing header off the line. The home side had a goal ruled through Bennett at the midway point of the half for a foul which the Shakers strongly protested about. A minute later Forte burst clear and he beat the onrushing Tyler to the ball, but he was forced wide by no less than four Bury defenders which meant Notts couldn't force the ball into the box and take advantage of the situation. On twenty-five the Shakers had a penalty claim waved away by Referee Mr Beeby after Pilkington and Morrell clashed just inside the Notts area, with the home fans reacting furiously and they were quick to vent their frustration at the official. After reducing the home side to barely any opportunities their leading scorer Andy Bishop provided a moment of class to open the scoring five minutes before the break. After a foul by Sodje on Weston went un-noticed the home side broke forwards Report continued on page 8
