Carl Stewart’s second half winner for Selby Town catapulted Christian Fox’s promotion-chasing side up to third, keeping them on course to challenge Skegness Town and Winterton Rangers for the Toolstation NCEL Division One title.

Stewart’s header in the 65th minute settled the 2-1 victory over Nostell Miners Welfare, who gave everything but came away with another extremely narrow defeat.

Liam Flanagan closed further in on 100 goals for Selby after his deflected long range strike flew over the top of Nostell goalkeeper Danny Rusling midway through the first half to place them ahead.

Nostell hit back quite quickly as under 21s starlet Amir Berchill shrugged off of the last ditch challenge of Luke Sellers to score from inside the penalty area before Stewart had the last word in the second half.

At the other end of the table, Des Macorison continues to have no luck at Harrogate Railway, who lost 4-1 at Dronfield Town who scored two last minute goals as the ‘Rail pushed forward for an equaliser.

Railway’s cause was not helped by East Hull’s pathetic 10-1 defeat to Ollerton Town who pulled further clear of Harrogate. 

Zak Khalifa’s first half strike ensured Parkgate pulled off the shock of the day with the 1-0 win at title favourites Skegness Town.

Four goals in the last ten minutes secured a 5-1 victory for Worsbrough Bridge against Armthorpe Welfare. Adam Baskerville’s early penalty gave Armthorpe the lead. Jack Mawson levelled the clash before the break and Steven Simpson and Kai Hancock both got doubles in the latter stages to win it.

North Ferriby were held to a goal-less draw at Retford. 

Despite Aidan Kirby’s opener, Campion lost 3-1 to Swallownest. Alex Nightingale, Matthew Morton and Jay Evison scored for Swallownest.

Hall Road Rangers lost 1-0 at leaders Winterton Rangers.
