Eleven goals in just two matches ... what a week’s it’s been for goal-happy Sheffield Club!
They celebrated their biggest win of the season with a 4-0 success over AFC Goole and then eclipsed that on Tuesday with a staggering 7-1 victory over bottom club Shepshed Dynamo.
Matt Roney and Andy Gascoigne both hit hat-tricks as Jason Bradley completed the rout against Shepshed while two goals by the in-form Modest plus others from Gascoinge and Williams saw off Goole
It left them six points clear in the Evo-Stik First Division South play-off places after scoring as many goals in two games as they did in their previous five.
The big test comes on Saturday when they visit top of the table Grantham Town and I’ll be at the BT Local Business Stadium next Tuesday for their clash against fifth-placed Stamford.
Stocksbridge Park made it one defeat in five, but had to battle hard against Ashton United before gaining a vital 2-1 victory with goals from Muldoon and Haigh. They’re still only a point clear of the four relegation places as just two points separates six of the bottom seven clubs in the Premier Division.
So they went into Tuesday night’s game looking for a win over neighbours Worksop Town, who have won only twice in nine league outings, and goals by Stirrup, Telling and Coleman gave them a deserved 3-0 win to move them four clear of the relegation zone.
Stocksbridge travel to Rushall Olympic on Saturday.
In Division One of the Baris North Counties East League, top of the table Handsworth look to make it 11 straight wins when they welcome neighbours Worsbrough Bridge to Olivers Mount on Saturday.
A 3-0 win over a poor Grimsby Borough courtesy of two goals from Gwindi and one from Bates was followed by a rather lucky 2-1 victory at Dinnington. Ward and Broadbent scored two second half goals to give them the points which leaves them six points clear at the top.
Injury to Dinnington’s Man of the Match veteran Andy Sykes exposed them at the back and after Trench had given them the lead they paid dearly for numerous missed chances in the first half.
They suffered another home defeat on Tuesday when they went down 1-0 to Louth United in a very poor game.
Worksop Parramore hit top form at Glasshoughton Welfare and goals by Hatton, two and Nolan, his 17 of the season, gave them a deserved 3-0 success. On Tuesday they entertained a struggling Askern Villa and had to battle hard before winning 3-2 to go second in the table.
Hallam, who suffered their second biggest defeat of the season, going down 4-0 at Sandygate to AFC Emley, have no match on Saturday.
Parkgate saw their Premier Division promotion hopes fade away when they slumped to a 4-1 defeat at Staveley despite taking the lead through Cusworth.
It was their first defeat in eight games but they’re now 10 points adrift of the leaders. No such problems in Tuesday’s extraordinary League Cup third round home clash against Hall Road Rangers as they won a 10 goal thriller 6-4.
Maltby Main earned a richly deserved point in their relegation fight, when a goal by John Wragg gave a 1-1 draw at home to fifth-placed Tadcaster Albion.
