Heroic Miller scores 93rd minute winner for Rec

Robbie Miller was Athersley Rec’s hero

Robbie Miller’s 93rd dramatic minute winner pulled off a shock 1-0 win for Athersley Rec at promotion-chasing Hemsworth Miners Welfare.

Defender Miller sparked scenes of jubilation as Rec celebrated an unlikely Toolstation NCEL Premier Division victory against the Wells, whose new manager Luke Danville has yet to win since taking the job on a permanent basis.

The only dampener for the Rec is that they failed to close on the gap on Bottesford as the Scunthorpe-based side won at AFC Mansfield.

Thackley came to close to a surprise win at leaders Staveley Miners Welfare as it took a late equaliser for the home side to cancel out Ray Sibanda’s strike for Paddy McGuire’s Thackley.

Tom Waudby’s goal on the stroke of half-time helped Bridlington Town defeat Knaresborough Town 1-0.

Albion Sports lost 1-0 to Barton Town.
