STOCKSBRIDGE made it two wins in four days beating Worksop Town 3-0 at Bracken Moor to pull four points clear of the drop zone with a game in hand, in the Evo-Stik Premier Division .

Steels broke the deadlock with a 35th minute penalty converted by Richard Stirrup following a trip on Scott Hogan. The Tigers went close to levelling a minute before the break when Lee Beeson’s 20-yard drive was tipped over the bar by Ben Scott. But Steels’ Hogan made a great run down the left before crossing into the box where Matt Telling tucked the ball away.

Chris Willcock’s men wrapped up the points with the third five minutes from time; sub Rory Coleman marking his debut by curling home a 22-yard free-kick.

Sheffield FC made it two home wins in the space of four days thrashing struggling Shepshed Dynamo 7-1 to extend their unbeaten run to eight games in all competitions and in doing so further consolidate their position in the First Division play-offs places.

Club got just the start they were looking for when Andy Gascoigne gave Sheffield an eighth minute lead. Matt Roney doubled the advantage midway through the half pouncing after the visitors’ defence had failed to clear a Matt Varley header.

Roney grabbed his second knocking home the rebound after the Shepshed keeper had saved from Jason Bradley. Ian Streeton headed in from a corner to reduced the arrears. But Bradley headed home early in the second half to restore the three goal cushion.

Gascoigne made it five with Roney completing his hat-trick to make it 6-1. Not to be outdone Gascoigne rounded off the scoring smashing home the seventh.

Parkgate are through to the quarter-finals of the Baris League Cup following an enthralling 6-4 home win over Hall Road Rangers, while in Division One Worksop Parramore climbed to second after beating Askern Villa 3-2 at home.
