Robins Wrap Up Title – NSL Roundup

Although Keyworth finished their fixtures, with a 2-0 home won over Wollaton on Friday night, and are top of the Euro Soccer Nottinghamshire Senior League Premier Division, advantage is firmly with fourth placed, Southwell City, they having six games still to play.

Between the two sides at the top end of the table, are Stapleford Town and Woodthorpe Park Rangers, the former holding a three point advantage on the latter, Stapleford edging home, 1-0, when against visiting Cotgrave, and Woodthorpe being held to a 2-2 draw when at FC Sez.

Fifth place Sandiacre picked up a big win when home to Clifton All Whites, in sixth, Jack Pancisi and Jack Hall with the goals there, whilst in the bottom half of the Premier, Dunkirk were held to a 2-2 draw away to Attenborough, and Ravenshead won 4-0 at Aslockton & Orston.

That victory for Ravenshead saw them leapfrog Dunkirk into eleventh place, and move them a little further away from the relegation zone, their four goals arriving through Kallum Greaves, Daniel Grimshaw, Kieran Grant, and Oliver Higgins.

In Division One, West Bridgford continued their march towards the title with their seventeenth, straight league victory, a 4-1 success at home to second place Radcliffe Olympic, and in doing so avenged their last reverse, a 2-0 away to Radcliffe back in late October.

Level at one apiece at the interval, Ed Smyth scoring for the visitors, the leaders upped the pressure in the second half of a game which would see Christopher Richards score twice, alongside goals from Shea Gough and Ernest Osaretin.

Gedling Southbank also registered four, when home to Hucknall Town Reserves, Gianfranco Ciaurro with a brace in their 4-1 success, this also level at one apiece at the interval, whilst Meden Vale Colts hit six when on the road at bottom club, Calverton Miners Welfare.

Calverton’s dismal season continued, and their goal difference reached -111, with the six leaked to Meden Vale, David Fisher helping to a hat-trick as the look to break into the top five in the closing rounds of matches.

Beeston Old Boys Association saw off visiting Beeston 4-2, Harry Hill bagging a brace for the victors, whilst Southwell City Reserves won 4-0 at home to Kirton Brickworks where Rhuel Samuels scored twice.

Division Two North leaders, Bestwood Colliery, need a point from their remaining games, to lift the title, and face bottom club Phoenix Inham next, after their 3-1 home win over mid-table Rushcliffe, Jake Fisher with all three goals, taking his tally to forty-two (in twenty-four games).

Netherfield Seniors won 7-1 at home to Ravenshead Reds, goals coming from Toby King and Curtis Clifford (two apiece), Oliver Swinscoe, Gregg McLean, and Kyle Cater; and Blidworth Welfare Red won 5-3 at home Trent Vineyard, Jordan Oldfield notching two for the winners.

The former of those two victors are maintaining fourth place, whilst the latter would be seen to strengthen sixth.

East Leake Robins wrapped up the South title, with a 6-2 win at home to Bingham Town Reserves, Nathan Ball scoring twice for the champions alongside further efforts from Mason Ball, James Dalton, Thomas Hardy, and Joseph Trimble, Bingham replying via Jacob Boyes and James Keen.

Meanwhile, South Notts are effectively the Foundation Division champions, a sizable goal swing, against them, when away to fourth place Stapleford Town Development, would afford second place Carlton Town Lions the title.
