It’s just one defeat in 29 league games at their Park Road fortress as Worsbrough Bridge Athletic maintained their Division One promotion challenge with a 7-2 victory over Dinnington Town.
Lee Garside fired the hosts into a fifth minute lead then headed the second from a free-kick on 29 minutes. Scott Turner immediately made it 3-0 and by half-time had completed his hat-trick with two more to make it 5-0.
Town reduced the arrears through Jamie Roper but Adam Podmore restored the five-goal cushion. Matt Smith pulled another back for Dinnington but Worsbrough’s Andy Broadbent hit their seventh three minutes from time.
Worksop Parramore extended their unbeaten away run to six games in league and cup winning 2-1 at Athersley Recreation with Nathan Forbes-Swindells hitting the winner a minute from time.
Callum Ward had given Parramore the lead four minutes before the break but Athersley, who had that great Sheffield Senior Cup in midweek over Worksop Town, looked to have rescued a point through an excellent Jack Briscoe strike until Forbes-Swindells late intervention.
Maltby Main’s eight-match winning streak was brought to a halt with a 2-0 home defeat against Long Eaton United.
Armthorpe Welfare slipped to a third straight defeat losing 3-1 at Heanor Town. Nathan Banger’s free-kick (5 mins) and Nick Hall’s deflected effort on 36 minutes had Heanor two up. Danny Mansaram tucked away a rebound two minutes later but Kieran Debrouwer pounced with his 26th goal of the campaign right on half-time to complete the scoring.
Retford United came from behind twice to draw 2-2 at Garforth Town with goals from Ben Muirhead and Richard Medcalf 10 minutes from time to extend their unbeaten away record to nine games.
At the 10th time of asking, Staveley MW won for the first time away and did it in some style thrashing struggling Lincoln MR 8-0.
Sam Finlay and Matty Thorpe goals gave Staveley a 2-0 lead at the break. Three goals inside the opening five minutes of the second period came from Pat Lindley, Thorpe and Finley. Ryan Damms and Jake Vernon (2) completed the rout.
Hallam lost 4-0 at home to promotion-chasing Shaw Lane Aquaforce, second in Division One. Danny Frost opened the scoring against his former club on 68 minutes. Luke Danville headed the second five minutes later with Lee Swift and Ashley Flynn sealing the win (see full details and photos in Friday’s Grassroots).
It’s just one defeat in eight for Dronfield Town after a 3-1 win at bottom side Louth Town with goals from Ben Kistell, Callum Mawby and Steve Whitehead.
