A 10-0 home victory for Cleethorpes Town over Retford United moved the Owls to the top of the Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division on Saturday.

The hosts went in at the interval with a seven goal lead thanks to a Liam Davis hat-trick, two from Brody Robertson and one each from Marc Cooper and Matthew Kingston before Cooper completed his brace and then Liam Dickens and Caine Winfarrah also got onto the scoresheet in the second period.

Liversedge, who began the day at the summit, are now second after they were beaten 5-2 at Hemsworth Miners Welfare, Bill Law’s hat-trick helping the hosts to the win whilst Nicholas Guest and Ashley Smith also added to their tally with Harrison Blakey and Vaughan Redford netting for the visitors towards the end of the first half to make it 2-2 at the break.

Thackley stay third, four points behind Cleethorpes, after a 3-0 home loss at the hands of AFC Mansfield, Gary Bradshaw’s opener added to by a Jason White penalty and then a second-half strike from Matthew Plummer as the Bulls remain in twelfth position.

Bridlington Town survived a late comeback from hosts Rainworth Miners Welfare for a 3-2 victory which moves them up into sixth spot as Nicky McNamara’s goal and a double from Brett Agnew had them in full control by the 55th minute but quickfire strikes from Julian Topliss and then Aaron Moxam – his twentieth goal of the season – brought the Wrens back into the game.

A goal towards the end of each half from Jon Froggatt and then Alex Rippon earned Handsworth Parramore a 2-0 win at Clipstone and they are now seventh, leaping over Bottesford Town who went down 2-1 at home to Maltby Main, Ryan Carroll and Steve Hopewell’s first half strikes ultimately earning the visitors the victory.

David Cawley’s brace helped Athersley Recreation to a 3-1 win at bottom side Parkgate to climb into ninth with Hemsworth completing the top ten.

There were 5-1 victories for Staveley Miners Welfare at Barton Town Old Boys, courtesy of a Kieran Watson hat-trick, and for Worksop Town at home to Armthorpe Welfare with Connor Brunt netting twice for the Tigers.

And, Harrogate Railway Athletic were 2-0 down after six minutes at Garforth Town but restored parity before half-time in a game that finished 2-2.
