New Handsworth Parramore boss Peter Duffield is still looking for his first win, after the Ambers slipped to a surprise 2-1 home defeat against Liversedge.

The visitors edged in front on 26 minutes through Anthony Hilton, but Handsworth were back on level terms seven minutes after the break as Danny Critchlow’s deflected effort found the net.

Liversedge restored their lead on 82 minutes when Mitchell Pearson ghosted in at the far post to score.

Worksop Town scored six for the second game in a row, this time sweeping aside struggling Glasshoughton Welfare 6-1. Conor Sellars set up the opening two goals for Mitch Husbands and Alex Pursehouse, and Luke Shiels nodded in the third on 52 minutes from a Sellars free-kick.

Sellars turned scorer on the hour, steering in Husband’s pass, and was then involved in the fifth, scored by Andre Johnson.

Glasshoughton pulled one back from the penalty spot after a foul by Shiels but Worksop had the last word when substitute Matt Booth rounded off the scoring eight minutes from time.

It finished honours even in the local derby at Muglet Lane as Maltby Main let slip a two goal half-time lead to draw 2-2 with Armthorpe Welfare.

The Miners took a fourth-minute lead through Nathan Lovell, and they doubled their advantage on the stroke of half-time when Brian Cusworth headed his sixth goal of the season.

Armthorpe were back in the game nine minutes into the second half through Jay Rollins’ freak goal, and they grabbed a share of the spoils in time added on directly from Brad Johnson’s in-swinging corner.

Promotion chasing Shaw Lane Aquaforce made it seven wins from an unbeaten run of nine games when they eased to a 5-0 win over struggling Retford United. The game was as good as over inside the opening 25 minutes with Lee Morris hitting a quickfire brace along with efforts from Shane Kelsey and Joe Thornton.

Morris completed his hat-trick 11 minutes after the break.

Staveley MW’s excellent run of form continued with a 3-1 victory over Athersley Recreation at Inkersall Road. Jordan Hodder fired the Miners into an early lead with Pat Lindley doubling the score on 36 minutes - moments after the visitors had been reduced to ten men.

Josh Moore gave Athersley hope pulling one back on the stroke of half-time but Ellis Wall struck 10 minutes from time to wrap up the points.

Parkgate had to settle for a point from a 2-2 draw at bottom of the table Nostell MW.

Daniel Abdula’s 11th minute strike cancelled out the host’s fifth minute opener, and Ross Shelton put the Steelmen in front on 76 minutes from the penalty spot after Scott Whittington had been brought to down.

But Nostell levelled with five minute remainings. Hallam moved off the bottom of the Division One tale after a goalless draw against Worsbrough Bridge Athletic at Sandygate Road.

Dronfield Town picked up their third win of the season beating high riding Shirebrook Town 3-1, while Penistone Church shared the spoils from a high scoring 4-4 draw at Hemsworth MW.

AFC Emley remain top after a 3-1 win at Hall Road Rangers.
