Super Mario nets brace for All Inn

Mario Slater hit a brace as All Inn progressed to the next round of this year’s Byron Cup.

All Inn proved too strong for Holmefield Arms on the day as Nathan Whitehead also found the net.

Holmefield did manage a consolation effort but it was not enough to put All Inn off their challenge for honours on three fronts this season with Derbyshire Cup and League also being within their reach.

In League action Chesterfield Town entertained Hopflower at Highfield Park and it was Town who took the lead on 35 minutes when top scorer Woolven pounced after a Dickens shot came back off the post.

Town kept the lead until 70 minutes when Coates equalised from a left wing cross. With few chances being created throughout the game a draw looked on the cards until Mark Hadfield got the winner for Hopflower as Town failed to deal with another cross.

Renishaw SC bounced back from last weekend’s disappointment in the Derbyshire Cup with a win over their visitors Clowne Villa Res. Renishaw had to work hard for the points in an eight-goal thriller.

On target for Renishaw were Stuart Grainger with a hat-trick and one apiece for Jonathan Senior and Tony Deane. Clowne’s marksmen were J Greaveson, J Clayton and A Bradbury.

Shirebrook Rangers battled hard against visitors New Houghton Villa but in the end they just didn’t quite have enough to get anything out of the game.

Rangers found the net through Adam Bailey and David Airlie. Among the goals for New Houghton Cromwell and a brace from Cheetham.

In a close run game at Tibshelf it was the home side who edged this match by the odd goal in three. G Wilkinson and S Fairburn were on target for Tibshelf.
