Sheffield FC bounced back from successive away defeats with a 2-0 victory over Grantham Town 2-0 in the Evo-Stik Division One to make it two wins from two at Dronfield.

After a slow start Club came more into the game taking the lead five minutes before the break. Callum Harrison chipping the ball over the defence for Charlie Weir to cross from the left to the far post where Conor Higginson headed back into the far corner.

Sheffield grabbed the second five minutes after the break. Higginson turning provider, squaring the ball to David Graham to slide the ball under the keeper for his first goal of the season.

In the Premier Division Stocksbridge Park Steels slipped to a 2-1 defeat at North Ferriby United despite taking a lead into the break. Steels dominated the first half with Colin Marrison hitting the post and Chris Glarvey seeing his powerful drive tipped over.

Stocksbridge broke the deadlock on 37 minutes through a Marrison penalty after Brett Lovell had been tripped. But in a second half turnaround Ferriby levelled on 51 minutes through a Darren Bradshaw penalty with Chris Bolder heading the winner.

In the NCEL Division One, Hallam picked up their first win of the season beating AFC Emley 4-2 away despite the home side taking the lead after just 20 seconds. But new signing Adam Todd equalised on 25 minutes and although the home side regained the lead just past the half hour mark. Ben Kistell netted twice after the break on 52 and 64 minutes to turn the game on its head before substitute Lee Warriner sealed the points late on knocking in the rebound after Kistell’s effort had rebounded off the crossbar.
