Logan scores winner for Brid as promotion race takes latest twist

Bridlington Town striker Billy Logan scored his side’s winner against promotion rivals Yorkshire Amateur

Billy Logan completed Bridlington Town’s second half turnaround as Brett Agnew’s men provided the latest twist in the pulsating race for promotion in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division.

Logan and Matt Broadley overturned a half-time deficit to earn Brid a 2-1 victory over top rivals Yorkshire Amateur.

The Ammers had taken an early lead, in one of the four Premier Division games surviving Storm Dennis, through Aiden Savory. A swift counter attack saw Steve Smith break forward and tee up Gibraltar International Adam Priestley who in turn supplied the pass for former Farsley Celtic striker Savory to score from.

Brid came out for the second half as a fired up team and Logan played a key part in the equaliser as it was him who held the ball up before feeding Broadley who fired home from the edge of the box.

Logan then grabbed the headlines and Brid were able to withstand the heavy artillery attack from the Ammers in the closing stages.

Harry Mitchell’s last minute winner crowned Handsworth’s 3-2 comeback victory in the feisty clash at nine-man Goole AFC

Goole raced into a two-goal lead through John Lock and Archie Brown, but ultimately paid the price following the first half dismissals of Josh Schofield and Kieran Mortimer.

Handsworth also lost Leon Osbourne in the first half as he was taken to hospital after taking an elbow to the face prior to one of the red cards.

The Ambers were an inspired side in the second half and on loan Chesterfield striker Luke Rawson scored twice to level it before Mitchell made himself the hero.

Thackley lost 3-2 at Bottesford Town. Thackley went 3-0 down and Ray Sibanda and James Rothel scored late in the second half to give Paddy McGuire’s men hope.                   

The win moves Bottesford Town further clear of Athersley Rec who went down 2-0 at AFC Mansfield after first half goals from Phillip Buxton and Ross Duggan. 

Both teams had a man sent off, with Jack Briscoe receiving a second yellow card for Rec, whose new striker Tom Foltyn-Brown also seeing his second half penalty saved.

In Division One, goals from in-form men Simon Harrison and Zak Khalifa in the final 18 minutes guided Parkgate to a 2-1 victory at Brigg Town.
