Evo-Stik League South club Corby Town entertained the former Premier League Legends for the `Non-League Challenge` at Steel Park on Sunday afternoon in front of a big crowd.

A wet, but packed house saw an entertaining affair won handsomely by the slightly fitter Steelmen!

Sam Mulready slid in and beat former Nottingham Forest keeper Mark Crossley to the ball to make it 1-0 to Corby.

Ollie Brown-Hill with a good finish at the near post doubled the hosts lead.

Ex-Chelsea and Arsenal star William Gallas prevented it being 3-0 with a last-ditch tackle to deny Mulready.

Former Ipswich Town midfielder Matt Holland pulled one back at the rain falls just before the break.

However, shortly after the break, Crossley presented Corby with a third goal when he passed the ball straight to Jordon Crawford, who finished well.

Ex-Celtic and Aston Villa favourite Stiliyan Petrov played a lovely pass to Eidur Gudjohnsen but Corby`s veteran keeper Paul Bastock palmed the ball behind for a corner.

Mulready then added Corby`s fourth as the ageing Legends tired and Shay Brennan and teenager Jordan O`Brien added two more.

There was time for a penalty to the Legends but Trevor Sinclair missed from the spot!.

Vanarama National League new boys Maidenhead United held a testimonial for long-serving Mark Nisbet on Sunday.

The game, against a Nisbet XI finished 4-1 to the Magpies with goals from Jake Hyde, Harry Pritchard, Dave Tarpey and Chinedu McKenzie – Jonathan Hippolyte replying.

National League South side Hampton & Richmond Borough sent a team to Bostik League Premier Merstham`s Moatside just 24 hours after playing Salford City.

And the hosts rand out comfortable 6-0 winners against a youthful Beavers outfit with goals from Tutu Henriques, Reece Hall, Sinn`Kaye Christie, Alex Addai and Ryan Hall with two.

And the 157th derby between Evo-Stik League South club Sheffield FC and Toolstation Northern Counties East Leaguers Hallam – claimed to be the world`s first derby – ended with a 4-1 win for Club.

Goals from Jack Mawson, Andy Gascoigne, Ritchie Humphreys and Mohamed Tijani won the Alan Cooper Memorial Trophy, with Ryan Lee replying for Hallam.

And at Newton Abbot Spurs, the South West Peninsula Charity Vase went to Stoke Gabriel, who beat Sticker 4-2, while later the Charity Bowl will sit in Tavistock`s board room after they hammered St Austell 6-1.
