Danville unplayable as Wells cause FA Cup upset

Hemsworth Miners Welfare captain Luke Danville was in unplayable form

Captain Luke Danville played a major role as Hemsworth Miners Welfare caused an upset in the FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round.

Hemsworth cruised a 4-0 victory at BetVictor North West outfit Kendal Town to book a Preliminary Round trip to either Sunderland RCA or Sunderland Ryhope CW.

Jason Yates headed the Wells in front before number nine Danville scored a tremendous goal to give them a two-goal half-time lead.

Danville then set Adam Knight for the third goal with an intelligent flick-on. Summer signing Jay Davis added the fourth with a 25-yard strike.

Leon Howarth’s hat-trick guided Handsworth to a 4-1 victory at nine man Thackley.

Howarth gave Handsworth an early lead before Thackley goalkeeper Luke Wilson saw red for denying a clear goal-scoring opportunity.

Despite only having ten men and outfield player Kris Hargreaves in goal, club stalwart Jerry White headed Thackley level minutes before the break.

Marley Grant put Handsworth back in front on the hour mark. Howarth completed his treble with two late goals. In between the strikes, Matthew Hall was dismissed for a lunge.

Maltby Main conceded early at Shepshed Dynamo, but came back to win 4-2. Gavin King, Waide Fairhurst, Steven Hopewell and Aaron Moxam found the net.

Garforth Town impressively drew 0-0 at Northern League giants Shildon and host them in a replay on Tuesday night. 

Garforth also suffered the blow of losing captain marvel James Beaston in the first half after he limped off.

Harrogate Railway faced the worst possible opponents in Whickham – whose team contained a number of players who competed either in the National North or the BetVictor Leagues last season. Whickham’s goalkeeper Adam Bartlett was York City’s number one.

Railway lost 10-1 with James Heeley getting their goal.

Albion Sports lost 2-0 at Ashington. 

A very young Athersley Rec side put in a spirited display in the 4-0 defeat to Padiham. Lee Garside missed a penalty for the Rec.

Yorkshire Amateur went to Billingham Town and lost 3-0.
