Staveley Miners Welfare were deservedly given ‘six of the best’ as they failed to defend properly in this action packed game at Albion Sports.

Attackers Daniel and Delroy Facey were the chief tormentors as they ran riot in behind Staveley’s defence in this NCEL Premier contest.

Staveley’s Joe Flint cancelled out Elliott Holmes opener, but the hosts’ lead was restored through Asif Hussain’s penalty.

A brace for Daniel Facey and another from brother Delroy put Albion into a comfortable 4-1 lead.

Luke Walker got a goal back 14 minutes from time but there would be no comeback and Levi Maturine made it 6-2 on the stroke of 90.

Staveley were in action on Wednesday night against Barton Town Old Boys and welcome Tadcaster Albion to Inkersall Road on Saturday.

While Staveley have signed goalkeeper Declan Howard from Parkgate as player-manager James Colliver strengthens his squad with a busy month.

While in the NCEL Division One, injury-hit Dronfield Town edged past Worsborough Bridge Athletic.

Despite having key players missing, Dronfield were victorious but left it late to put away Worsborough Bridge Athletic by a 2-1 scoreline.

Joe Butler had given Town the lead but Worsborough notched an equaliser before the break.

It looked as though the points were going to be shared before Lewis Naylor gave Town a deserved last minute winner.

Dronfield hosted Worsborough on Wednesday night and entertain Louth Town on Saturday.

Clay Cross Town are suffering from ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ form in the Central Midlands Football League.

Following a 5-1 success at Askern FC in midweek, the Millers took on Kinsley Boys and suffered a 5-2 reverse.

An Ant Lynam hat-trick helped matters against Askern in a game which saw Clay Cross play 47 minutes with ten men after keeper Matt Bradwell was sent off for handling outside his area.

Just a few days later, Millers supporters saw the other side of their team when they were 3-1 down within 20 minutes against Kinsley Boys.

Lynam again on target for Clay Cross and Neil Spruce, Craig Rouse and Spencer Clarke for the visitors.

Lynam made it 3-2 before Clarke grabbed his second and substitute Rollinson drilled in to complete the scoring.
