Gresley FC achieved their first win of 2017/18 in the Evo-Stik League South on Tuesday night after beating another side yet to taste victory – Market Drayton Town at The Moat.

The deadlock was finally broken when the Moatmen took a 74th minute lead through Reece Morris.

And almost straight from the restart, Matt Melbourne added a second.

Andre James pulled one back for Drayton with 7 minutes remaining,

Frickley Athletic came back from 2-0 down inside 8 minutes at Sheffield FC to eventually run out 4-3 winners.

James Gregory after 4 minutes and Andy Gascoigne 4 minutes later gave Club that advantage before Josh Nodder replied 5 minutes later.

Gavin Allott then took centre stage, equalising after 32 minutes and putting the Blues in front just past the hour-mark.

But Gascoigne levelled matters in the 73rd minute, only for Allott to complete his hat-trick and win it for Frickley with 2 minutes to go.

Joe Lumsden also left it late just down the road at Bracken Moor for Stocksbridge Park Steels against Leek Town.

Jordan Johnson gave the visitors a 13th minute lead that Alex Wiles cancelled out almost immediately.

Tim Grice`s penalty restored Leek`s lead on 25 minutes, but that too lasted barely 3 minutes as Scott Ruthven equalised.

But Grice`s second and Leek`s third came on 71 minutes, only for Lumsden to level 10 minutes later – and then he won it for Steels in the 89th minute.

Kieran O`Connell gave Belper Town a 27th minute lead at Christchurch Meadow against Newcastle Town.

Eric Graves eventually doubled the Nailers` lead with 15 minutes to go, rendering Tom Unwin`s late reply as just a consolation for `Castle.

Alvechurch`s good start to life in the Evo-Stik South continued as they won 3-0 at Loughborough Dynamo.

Luke Keen broke the deadlock right on half-time.

Ten minutes after the interval, Bekir Halil doubled the visitors` lead and Yusifu Ceesay made sure with Church`s third 18 minutes from the end.

Spalding United made it three unbeaten after beating Lincoln United 2-1 at the Sir Halley Stewart Fields.

Nathan Whitehead had the Tulips ahead after 11 minutes and Gary King eventually doubled that on the hour-mark.

Rob Norris pulled one back for Lincoln in the 76th minute, but they weren’t able to find a leveller.
