Josh Bowkett came off the bench to grab an injury time winner as Armthorpe Welfare came from a goal down to beat Dronfield Town 2-1 and move to the cusp of the Toolstation NCEL Division One top four.

The victory is their fourth on the spin.

Three minutes into the second half, Dronfield took the lead when Steven Garner’s pass was intercepted by Daniel Wood who immediately played the ball forward for Callum Mawbey to break clear and slot past Stevens-Neale.

Welfare finally got back into the game on 73 minutes when Luke Williams did brilliantly down the left of the box to float the ball to the far post where Adam Baskerville headed into an empty net from almost on the line.

As the game entered the third minute of added time substitute Jack Bonser played a cracking ball out to Tyler Walker on the right and he picked out Bowkett whose first time shot nestled just inside the left hand post from 15 yards.

North Ferriby were beaten 1-0 by promotion rivals Winterton Rangers.

East Hull lost 5-1 at Retford FC, while Brigg Town beat Nostell Miners Welfare 3-0.
