FC Cavaliers End Newark Flowserve's 100% Record
In the Nottinghamshire Senior League Premier Division, Newark Flowserve have finally lost their 100% record, at the 23rd time of asking. FC Cavaliers were the better team on the day as they prevented Newark from scoring for the first time this season, running out 3-0 winners. David Kolapo and Mustapha John put Cavs into an early 2-0 lead and substitute Liam Taylor put the result beyond doubt late on.
Bingham Town came from behind to win 2-1 at home to Basford United Community. Ezra Kitungano gave the visitors a half time lead but Tom Spencer, with his 42nd goal of the season, and Mike Jepps secured the points for Bingham, although it could have been different as Basford struck the bar with the last kick of the match.
Jake Fisher put Wollaton ahead at home to Ruddington Village but the visitors struck back through Cardell Lubban and James Lukas. They couldn’t hold on, however, and Ryan Tinsley made it 2-2 to rescue a point for Wollo.
Calverton Miners Welfare and Sandiacre Town drew 1-1. Charlie Goodwin put Town ahead; Calvo were awarded two penalties in the match but could only convert one, by Jason Hodson with eight minutes remaining, to take a share of the spoils.
Kimberley Miners Welfare AFC moved off the bottom of the table with a 2-1 win at Magdala Amateurs. Adam Hassell and Sam Dunstan netted for Kimberley.
In Division One, a late Ryan Fowler goal gave leaders Netherfield Albion a 3-2 win over Stapleford Town. Cameron Robinson and Brent Horton put Albion two to the good but a Kyle Waddell double made the scores level with five minutes remaining before Fowler’s injury time dramatics.
Second-placed Keyworth United Reserves won by a similar scoreline against Southwell City Reserves. A Scott Litchfield brace and Stephen Cullis did the damage for Keyworth, J Collins and R Brown replied for Southwell.
A Mark Smallwood second half hat-trick saw Ravenshead past AFC Bridgford 3-0 and Wollaton Reserves won 3-0 at Beeston Rylands, Luke Sharpe, Andrew Gill and Robert Khachatour the scorers.
In Division Two, bottom club Nottingham City recorded their second victory of the season in fine style as Richard Sherratt scored five in a 9-1 win over Gedling Southbank Reserves.
James Owen scored both for Keyworth United Development and Sheldon Tuitt both for Bridgford United as they drew 2-2. Barrowby and AFC Clifton also drew 2-2 with Joe Sumner and James Noon netting for Barrowby, Jordan Sharpe and Ryan Pearson for Clifton.
