Newark continue their scoring spree...
In the Nottinghamshire Senior League Premier Division, leaders Newark Flowserve have scored at least four goals in each of their last four league games. This time it was a 6-1 win over Sandiacre Town. Elliott King opened the scoring, Daryl Price then delivered a corner from which Sol Miller scored before netting himself, Tyler Martin got in on the act on his debut before substitute Michael Attard made it five. Zac Harrison grabbed a consolation for Sandiacre but King restored the five goal cushion soon after with his second of the day.
Bilborough Town and Southwell City have identical records in second and third, right down to goals scored and conceded, and are only separated on alphabetical order! Bilborough won 5-3 at Kimberley Miners Welfare AFC having twice been behind. Ryan Henshaw put the hosts ahead after half an hour before they were pegged back by a deflected Connor Croft header. Parity was short-lived, however, as Greg Newbold claimed Kimberley’s second just before half-time. Bilborough took the game to their opponents after the break and built a 5-2 lead thanks to a Croft penalty, Ricky Cross and Liam Stewart. Dominic Cross pulled one back late on.
Southwell also had to come from behind to win 3-1 at home to AFC Dunkirk. George Harrison put the visitors ahead from the spot after only six minutes. It looked like that lead would last until half-time but Calum Law had other ideas, firing a free-kick into the top corner from 25 yards to make it all square. City managed to carry that momentum into the second half and a brace from Romello Nangle on 51 and 74 minutes sealed the win.
Ruddington Village continued their recent improvement with a 2-2 draw with FC Cavaliers. Jake Johnson-Foster and Adam Price-Henson were on target for Rudd, Blessing Adeleye and Kieran Blades for Cavs.
In a see-saw game at the WSA, Wollaton eventually ran out 5-4 winners against Magdala Amateurs. Tom Haw gave The Budgies the lead only for Liam Towle, Ben Branston and Jake Fisher to turn the match in Wollaton’s favour. Neil Morgan and James Beavan managed to get Magdala back on level terms but second goals from Fisher and Towle with only Fionn Coffey in reply meant the visitors left empty-handed.
Bingham Town and Calverton Miners Welfare shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw. Chris Bradford notched for Bingham, Barry Payne for Calverton.

Newark now have an eight point lead as second-placed Southwell City crashed to a 6-1 defeat at Bingham Town. Lewis Ray put Bingham into an early lead before Romello Nangle levelled matters on 25 minutes.

He had an opportunity to redeem himself soon after as Southwell had a penalty of their own but Nangle’s effort was blazed over the bar. Things got worse for Southwell on the stroke of half-time as Stewart Gill received his marching orders.
