Prolific Joe scores late winner for Nostell

Toolstation NCEL Division One 

Nostell Miners Welfare 3-2 Ollerton Town

Former Shaw Lane AFC star Joe Thornton scored the winner for Nostell

Double goal-scorer Joe Thornton scored the late winner as Nostell Miners Welfare maintained their strong start to the season.

Former Staveley Miners Welfare and Shaw Lane prolific attacker Thornton was back at his best. He hit a sweetly-hit volley for the opener which was soon cancelled out by Ollerton’s Gavin King.

Adam Hayton put Nostell back ahead in the 20th minute with a deflected shot and Simon Houghton and Jason Dodsworth’s men would remain in front until the 70th minute when Sean Dickinson equalised.

Ollerton’s dreams of taking a magical point home to Nottinghamshire were over though when Thornton rounded their goalkeeper to make himself the hero.
