Toolstation NCEL Division One Round-Up (2)
Christian Fox’s Selby Town claimed their first league win of the campaign with the 2-1 victory at fellow strugglers Glasshoughton Welfare.
Both teams were desperately searching to kick-start their campaigns and goals from Brad Freer and Liam Flanagan ensured the Robins went back to Selby in a triumphant mood.
Selby were able to settle the nerves literally straightaway as Freer fortuitously turned in Ryan Gothard’s cross-field pass.
Glasshoughton had their star striker and marquee signing Nathan Perks sin-binned at one stage.
It was not until midway through the second half that Selby decisively scored for the second time. Danny Snaith and Charlie Clamp did all the hard work and that enable Flanagan to have a simple tap-in.
Glasshoughton set up the nervy finale after a retaken penalty. Goalkeeper Dylan Parkin saved Mark Ferguson’s spot kick, but the assistant referee deemed that he had left his line too early. Ferguson made no mistake with the second effort.
Hallam comfortably overcame Nostell Miners Welfare in the 4-1 success at Sandygate.
Kieran Watson Chris Wood, Jack Brownell put Hallam well in control by half-time. Lewis Stephens reduced the deficit, but Richard Patterson rounded the three-goal win off for Hallam.
Rossington Main, who have played more games than everyone else, moved up to fifth with the 2-1 win against crisis-hit East Hull.
Micah Parsons and Tyla Bell put Rossington firmly in charge. Ali Aydemir gave Hull late hope.
