Toolstation NCEL Division One
Worsbrough Bridge overtook last season’s points tally as Lee Morris’ side continued their razor sharp start with a 3-1 home win over Skegness Town.
Liam Owen, one half of Barnsley’s second best Non League footballing brothers, hit a late goal to seal a win which keeps underdogs Worsbrough right behind big guns Nostell Miners Welfare, Winterton Rangers, Christian Fox’s Selby Town, Grimsby Borough and leaders Campion.
It is a great achievement when the facts are laid bare, Sixth-placed Bridge now have 34 points, one more than they managed last season. They have already won more four league matches than last season’s seven victories. One more success will secure the most league wins Worsbrough have had in a season since 2013/14 – the final campaign of the great Chris Hilton era.
Their latest success wasn’t clean cut as it was 2-1 for a long period of time. Jack Waldron gave Worsbrough an early lead before Daniel Stevens equalised for Skegness in the 21st minute.
However, parity lasted just 120 seconds as former Yorkshire Amateur youth team striker Billy Law struck and that’s how it remained until Owen continued his fine form with the icing on the cake late-on.
Leon Hurles-Brook, Aiden Day and Omar Habeeb fired Campion to the top of the table with a 3-0 victory at Ollerton Town.
Hallam were held to a goal-less draw at Harworth Colliery.
AFC Emley were beaten by a Mark Fereday strike at Dronfield Town.
