A CONTENDER for goal of the season earned Stocksbridge all three-points and a second home win in four days as Steels came from behind to beat Kendal Town 2-1, easing their relegation fears.

The Cumbrians took a 25th minute lead with a contentious penalty awarded against skipper Brett Lovell and converted by Kieran Warmsley. It took Steels until the 75th minute to equalise. A corner had only been half cleared and when the ball was played back in Lovell was on hand to fire home. Steels then scored a goal to savour. Dan Dillon, just inside the Kendal half, spotted the goalkeeper off his line and lofted a superb effort over the keeper’s head.

Frickley Athletic climbed out of the bottom four with a 1-0 win over Worksop Town. Ashley Longstaffe hit the only goal of the game.

Sheffield FC came from a goal down to win 2-1 and record a third victory of the season over Goole AFC. Former Club striker Vill Powell gave the visitors a 29th minute lead, coming after Andy Gascoigne had missed a 16th minute penalty.

Sheffield levelled when Matt Roney drove home from the edge of the box. Callum Harrison, who had earlier hit the bar, grabbed the winner 73 minutes with a 25-yard strike to give Club three points.

In the NCEL Hallam picked up a 2-2 draw against high riding Thackley at Sandygate. However, the Blues are disappointed at letting slip a two goal lead.

Craig Getliff gave Hallam 51st minute lead hitting home first time fort from a Gavin Hunter cross. The home side doubled their advantage when Matt Thompson got on the end of a Ben Kistell cross. Thackley pulled one back on 65 minutes before snatching an equaliser from the penalty spot.

Dinnington Town remain on the bottom after losing 2-0 at Arnold Town. Staveley Miners Welfare are through to the fourth round of the league cup to face Handsworth after a 2-0 win at Barton Town OB.
