Stocksbridge Park Steels ended a run of five league games without a win in style by thumping five past Loughborough Dynamo without reply at Bracken Moor.

Harrison Biggins gave Steels a sixth minute lead into the bottom corner from 22-yards. Adam Hinchliffe made it 2-0 on 19 minutes with a terrific 25 yard strike.

Rory Coleman added a third from the penalty spot midway through the second half after a trip on Scott Ruthven and Coleman scored his second and Stocksbridge fourth with a fine angled drive. And Joe Lumsden marked his home debut with the fifth a minute from time after wriggling past two defenders at the near post.

Sheffield FC slipped to a third defeat on the spin in league and cup losing out 3-2 to a last minute goal at Goole AFC after leading 2-0.

Club dged in front on through Benny Igi-Ehon’s 20-yard volley. Then Shaq McKenzie was given time to turn inside the area to put his shot away through a crowd of players to make it 2-0.

But Goole pulled one back before the break when Nick Guest latched onto a through ball to lash home a 22-yard effor.

Within four minutes of the restart Goole equalised when a clumsy challenge inside the box resulted in a contested penalty that Chris Jackson struck venomously past Dunn.

And Goole grabbed the winner three minutes into time added on. Jackson scoring his second of the game from close range.

Shaw Lane Aquaforce moved to within three points of Division One South table toppers Stafford Rangers with a 5-3 win at Kidsgrove Athletic, while the leaders were being held 1-1 at Basford United.

Adam Priestley, Lee Bennett, Gavin Allott (pen), Oscar Radford and an own goal sealed the points.

Frickley Athletic went down 3-0 at Matlock Town to a Joel Purkiss brace and Niall McManus.
