Seven-goal thrillers light up NAPIT top division
Both NAPIT Chesterfield and District Sunday Football League Division One games this week were seven goal thrillers with Clowne Wanderers beating Wingerworth BMB 4-3 and Doe Lea beating FC Brimington by the same score.
Josh Clayton scored twice for Wanderers, Josh Madin and Simon Straw once whilst Adam Seward hit a hat-trick for Doe Lea, Robert Holland with the other.
In Division Two it was a very similar picture as Brampton Rovers JMA won by the odd goal in seven at Pilsley Community whilst Renishaw Rangers drew 3-3 with Clowne Wanderers Reserves.
However, leaders Britannia Rose won again, beating Creswell Black Diamond Reserves 6-2, San Gilthorpe scoring three.
Division Three leaders Grassmoor Sports eased to victory at Brimington United, beating them 6-0.
Skipper John Donaldson led from the front, scoring twice with Callum Baker, Brady Parker, Steve Rodgers and Tom Allcock scored one apiece.
Butchers Arms went one better by beating Black Swan 7-0, Mark Woods in top form scoring a hat-trick, as did Jordan Price, goal number seven being scored by Dean Simmons.
Brimington Utd Shoes, Bolsover Town and Furnace Hill Hurricanes remain neck and neck at the top of Division Four following Shoes’ 4-2 win at Whitecotes Wanderers and Hurricanes’ 6-2 win over Brimington Arms. Chesterfield Arms and Spartans were both on the goal trail, hammering AFC Castle 8-0 and Bridge Inn 8-1 respectively.
Bolsover Town bettered both of them, scoring nine. No fewer than four players hit hat-tricks in the division, Matt Tait for Chesterfield Rangers, Charlie A for Bolsover Town and Craig Tromans along with Jake Longdon for Spartans.
Old Whittington’s emphatic 6-0 win over Dronfield Wanderers means they stay top of Division Five whilst second placed Holmewood Park Rangers drew 5-5 with Hasland WMC. Tom Boyce scored three times for Hasland, Steve Adams and substitute Billy Pearson twice for Rangers.
Whittington’s Reece Nuttall was in top form, scoring a hat-trick in their victory. Also on the scoresheet were Bradley Nunn, Scott Wilson and James Scott.
Paul Johnson and Dominic Wilson’s goals saw Brimington Club narrowly beat Spireite Club 2-0 while Barlow Kingston Rovers secured an excellent 5-1 at Hasland Community, Dan Nowak scoring twice.
Anchor Inn continue to dominate Division Six after they beat Blue Bell Bolsover in an 8-4 goal fest, their 13th win from 13 starts.
Ryan Edridge once again proved to be a handful for the opposition defence, scoring twice, Macaskill, Parker, Hill, Glossop, Martin and Jordan Edridge all scoring once.
Black Bull Rangers also scored eight, their octet coming against Ye Olde Nags Head, who scored twice in reply.
Palterton Sporting Club recorded an excellent win at Markham Arms, Will Holmes scoring three, John Lockwood two, Simon Alton once.
Mark Vine scored a treble as Spartans II won 5-2 at Dronfield Town and Nags Head Allstars beat Renishaw Rangers TFC 5-3.
