Midweek Round-up

By Michael Clarke

Midweek action returns

It has been a busy midweek in the County Senior League, with a full league programme from Monday through to Thursday.

Premier Division

Jubilee Sports followed up their 4-1 win over Frecheville, with a 2-2 draw at Holme Lea Sports Ground against Everst. Jubilee look to have adapted well since promotion in the Summer and sit atop the early standings. Everest also remain unbeaten.

Kyle Lilley, Will Eades and James Dawes were all on the score-sheet as Handsworth Parramore beat Millmoor Juniors 3-1 at Grange Park.

Frecheville bounced back from a heavy defeat to Jubilee Sports at the weekend, with an impressive 1-0 away win over Swallownest Miners Welfare.

Ryan McDonald continued his good goal-scoring form from last season with a hat-trick for Stocksbridge Park Steels Reserves, as they beat Joker FC 4-0 away from home. Abdullah Hussein was also on the score-sheet for Stocksbridge.

Oughtibridge bounced back from their opening day defeat to Swallwonest, with a 3-1 win over Wickersley at Wickersley School.

Division One

In similar fashion to Jubilee Sports, North Gawber Colliery sit atop the Division One table with four points from two games following promotion in the summer. North Gawber were 3-1 winners over South Kirkby Colliery on Wednesday night thanks to goals from Robert Cartwright, Carl Woodhead and Craig Walton.

Tom Hardman scored the season’s first hat-trick at Herringthorpe Leisure Centre on Tuesday night, where Rotherham Town met Sheffield Athletic. Hardman’s were not enough though, as Rotherham were held to a 3-3 draw.

Wayne Hughes scored three times for Silkstone United, as they beat Thorncliffe 5-2 at Silkstone Recreation Ground. It was an impressive victory for Silkstone, made even more so by the fact they had 10 men for 70 minutes after they had their goalkeeper sent-off.

Kingstone United followed their draw at the weekend against Davy FC with a 2-1 home win over High Green Villa. Callum Neal and Richard Day scored the goals for Kingstone.

AFC Dronfield made a positive start to their season, with a 3-1 win over Davy FC at Davy Sports Ground.

Division Two

Denaby Main made it two wins from two played, with an emphatic 8-1 home win over Maltby Main Reserves. Dan Phillips (3), Christopher Hancock (2), Thomas O’Neill (2) and Gary Adcock were all in the goals for the early league leaders.

Equally impressive were Pargate Reserves, who beat Treeton Terriers 5-1 at Meadowhall Soccer Centre.

Byron House’s debut in the County Senior League could not have gone any better for them. Scott Staples, Jordan Marshall (2) and Oliver Hall all scored to help them to a 4-0 away win over New Bohemians.

Ryan Ramsey and Leon Stocks were both on target for Caribbean Sports, as they were held to a 2-2 draw at home by Sheffield Lane Top.

Josh Evans scored the only goal for Worsbrough Bridge Athletic Reserves to give them a 1-0 home win over Frecheville Reserves.

Denaby United and Kiveton Park that most rare of score-lines – a goalless draw at Old Road Playing Fields.

U21 Division

Houghton Main U21 maintained their 100% start with a 6-1 win over Bawtry Town U21 at Middlecliffe Lane. Jack Conley (2), Josh Cornwall, Alex Lacey, Macauley Evans and Luke Addis all got their names on Houghton Main’s score-sheet.

Goals from Danny Beighton, George Snelling and Matt Morton made sure Handsworth Parramore U21 opened their season with a 3-1 win over AFC Dronfield U21 at Handsworth Junior Sports Club.

Denaby United U21 and Wombwell Main U21 shared the spoils in an entertaining 3-3 draw at Old Road Playing Fields on Wednesday.

Adam Ellis and Sam Carr scored the goals for Millmoor Juniors U21, as they beat Davy U21 2-1 at Grange Park.

The last game of the midweek came on Thursday night at Woolley Miners Welfare, where North Gawber Colliery U21 and Athersley Recreation played-out a 2-2 draw.
