Welfare edge local derby

Have your say

Armthorpe Welfare claimed the local bragging rights in the Koolsport NCEL Premier Division by beating neighbours Maltby Main 2-0 at Muglet Lane last night.

But the gloss was taken off the win with the sending off of Leo Fortune-West midway through the second half for a second yellow card, the striker’s second dismissal in successive games.

Both goals came late in the first half with Adam Lee and Craig Morleyon target.

Staveley Miners Welfare extended their lead at the top of Division One to 11 points after a 3-2 win over Handsworth at Inkersall Road, with Andrew Fox bagging a treble, including a last minute winner.

AFC Emley came from behind three times at home against Appleby Frodingham to secure a 3-3 draw with goals from Dean Wharam, Brad Dowling and Steve Kenworthy.
