Notts FA U18 Youth Challenge Cup Rd 1

Sherwood FC White 3, Arnold Town Yellow 5

Competing with the noise and crowds of the Goose Fair, this game got off to a hesitant start before the visitors were able to take a grip and assert real dominance over the home team. Persistent attacking play led to Jack Mc Lachlan scoring two goals before half time, with assistance from Will Rayment and Oliver Collins. In the second half, Arnold scored inside two minutes from the whistle, Tom Whittaker tapping the ball over the line from a glancing Chris Carter header. The weather turned and the tide of the game with it. Sherwood managed to get a goal back and then a second, looking as if they might get back on terms. However, an Oliver Collins free kick extended the Arnold advantage to 2-4. Sherwood struck back, taking advantage of a rare lapse in the Arnold defence, to get the score back to 3-4. In the final minutes of the game, a mesmerising run by James Wade out of the Arnold half saw him set Angelo Georgiou up to net the fifth and final goal of the game.

The turning point in the game came in the 40th minute when Bridgford were reduced to 10 men after Harvey Grice was sent off and the 10 men put in a very gritty and disciplined performance for the remaining 50 minutes.  Second half goals from James Corden and Ryan Mills secured the victory.

Bingham Town Blue 5, Fernwood Foxes 1

In what looked like a close game on paper Bingham Town played really well in a first half that saw Foxes conceded four goals. Sloppy marking saw the first conceded from a corner, a simple ball forward wasn’t cut out for Bingham’s second and with Bingham getting behind the Foxes defence saw the third and fourth quickly follow, Foxes were unlucky; they saw a great shot tipped onto the bar and had a goal disallowed for a tight off side position. These chances would have put a different slant on the half time score line. Foxes played better in the second half and created more going forward and were tighter at the back and they were rewarded with a neat finish from Adam Munnery following a free kick. With the game coming to a close Foxes stood off the Bingham midfield who took their chance and crashed one in from 25 yards.

AFC Mansfield started stronger, moving the ball well and dominating possession. Twenty minutes in, from a set piece Arron Stafford headed the ball from the back post into the net. Despite lots of chances the visitors failed to build on their possession and suffered a quick counter attack down the right flank and conceded an equaliser on 40 minutes to put the teams level at half time. The second half started and Mansfield were second to the ball and struggled with Basford’s out and out pace. Mansfield went down 3-1 with some decent counter attacking football from Basford who used the space well especially and scored through Charles Nuduka (2) and Kwabena Opoku after the home team lost two of their three centre backs. The last 20 minutes Mansfield pushed harder and had more chances, Joe Walsh coming off the bench to win a penalty which he slotted home. This was Basford third consecutive win to top the table.

Mason Barker scored twice for Long Eaton with Matt Cartwright also on target.

Southwell City 3, Teversal 2

Ruddington Colts 2, Blidworth Welfare 3

Great game today which had a bit of everything. Blidworth got off to a flier scoring in the first few minutes with Ben Huddart tapping home after some great build up play. Callan Smith then made it 2-0 with a great strike from distance. Ruddington then increased the pressure but Blidworth’s defence was solid and just before halftime George Morgan made it 3-0. The second half was always going to see Ruddington come out fighting and an unlikely error led to them making it 3-1. Both teams then had chances but Ruddington were awarded a penalty in the last seconds to make it 3-2. Ruddington’s scorers were Tom Quartly and Marcus Temby.

Riverside Whites 1, Fernwood Foxes 2

In a close game and despite not playing very well Fernwood Foxes managed to come out on top with a 1-2 win. With a man advantage Foxes had most of the ball but were thwarted from going ahead by the crossbar following an excellent shot from Dan Neil. This spurred on Riverside who came back into the game but despite some good possession didn’t really trouble the Foxes defence. Foxes continued to push forward and had several other opportunities to take the lead before Kieran Schindler scored to make it 1-0. Just before half time Riverside managed to break forward and finished well to make it 1-1 at half time. The second half was like the first but with a change by RW that saw them play on the counter attack with a quick centre forward moved up from midfield. Riverside caused Foxes some issues with their pace but it was Foxes who managed to grab the winner following a foul in the box on Darik Samson who managed to pick himself up and convert the winner.

Arnold Town Yellow 1, Toton Tigers Orange 0

These old adversaries renewed their rivalry in a game which was always full of action, but produced little in the way of goals for either side.The game began in a scrappy fashion as both teams tested each other out. Arnold defended well against some sharp attacks from Toton but then switched the momentum and, after a series of corners and crossed balls, Angelo Georgiou got his head on the ball and was able to slot it past the keeper. The second half produced constant toe to toe football, with neither side being able to create sufficient space and time to make sustained attacks. For Arnold, Chris Turner pulled off some important instinctive saves to keep Arnold in the game and the home side were able to hang on to their slender lead.

Under 18 Cup Final

Alfreton Town 4, Wollaton Hall & Bramcote 0

Having suffered in form recently Wollaton needed to up their game for the cup final against Alfreton Town and judging by their outstanding first half performance they had come with intentions of lifting the trophy. However, Alfreton hindered those intentions midway through the first half from the penalty spot, with Wollaton skipper Jack Clark almost leveling from 30 yards just minutes later, were it not for the upright, the scores would have been level at the break. The second half saw injuries for Wollaton and a few tired legs that suited Alfreton’s style of play. Two goals in quick succession gave them a 3-0 lead that would later on become 4-0 as they closed the game out. Wollaton played extremely well and can hold their heads high at the end of a difficult last season.

The Captain stepped up yet again and struck the ball neatly into the top right hand corner to give the goalkeeper no chance. Eastwood wouldn’t lie down and got their first goal before the break. The second half started pretty much the same as the first with Lowdham scoring first through the lively Ben Martell.

AFC Vernon 1, West Bridgford Utd 2

A very close game between two evenly matched teams ended in a 2-1 win for the visitors. A very poor start from West Bridgford saw Vernon take the lead with an OG in the first 5 minutes. West Bridgford suddenly woke up and the rest of the half saw a competitive match with little created in either final third. The second half carried on in the same vein. West Bridgford had a goal disallowed for offside, but both kept trying. For visitors it started to look like something might happen and then it all changed after one brilliant save from keeper Josh Newnham. Vernon won a free kick on the edge of WB’s box. It was a great free kick, but somehow Josh got to it. WB mopped up the loose ball and went straight up the other end and scored. They now had the momentum and the second came through Patrick Ferguson. It could have been a nervy last 5 minutes but WB finished strongly. It was a bit harsh on Vernon as it had been a close contest all the way through.

Basford CFC 2, Southwell City Blue 3

Southwell City arrived at the impressive facility of Basford United without either keeper due to a Duke of Edinburgh expedition weekend. And during the warm-up, the home team lost their regular goalkeeper due to a wrist injury. So, both teams started the match with outfield players volunteering to play in goal. And it didn’t take long for both keepers to be tested, both doing incredibly well not to concede an early goal. However, midway through the 1st half, Morgan went on one of his dazzling runs into the area before laying off a perfect pass to Jack Walker who, was upended before shooting and a penalty was awarded to the visitors. Christian Butcher stepped up and made no mistake with his spot kick. Southwell now started to get to grips with the slow 4G pitch and created enough chances to be out of sight by half-time. Unfortunately, yet again, they weren’t ruthless enough in front of goal and had to settle for a slender one goal advantage at the break. Basford started the 2nd half very brightly forcing a wonderful save from Harry Stanford in the opening 30 seconds. And just 5 minutes later were on level terms with a smart finish from Sanyo Campbell. The home team at this stage were well on top and deservedly took the lead through Kwabena Opoku on 64 minutes. The visitors, for the 2nd week running, changed formation to try in a desperate attempt to get back into this match. On 73 minutes, Southwell were awarded a free kick 20 yards from goal. Harry Mills stepped up and unleashed a powerful shot that took a slight deflection before nestling in the corner of the net to make it 2-2. The visitors now believed they could go on to win this match and eventually regained the lead with six minutes remaining, when Luke Thompson nodded home from close range following a corner to the near post. The home team though, were not going to give up and came back strongly looking for a late equaliser. But, Southwell were determined to hold on with some desperate defending and last ditch blocks to see out the remaining few minutes. Final score: 2-3

Arnold Town Yellow 1, West Bridgford Foxes 2

This highly competitive game got off to a lively start as both teams attempted to impose themselves. Adopting similar pressing styles, the players moved the action from one end to the other throughout the first half, with clear chances eluding both teams. Only minutes before the break, a rare defensive gaffe by the home team opened up a chance on goal for West Bridgford which was gratefully accepted. As the second half started, Arnold started strongly, but were caught out again by ever threatening away team, to go 2-0 down. However, Arnold rallied and were eventually able to break down the West Bridgford defence and get a goal back due to some strong work by Angelo Georgiou who set up Jack McLachlan in front of goal. Arnold worked hard to the last to try and get an equaliser, but West Bridgford hung on to take all the points.

Southwell City Blue 3, West Bridgford Utd 1

A fairly even start to this match between two teams still hopeful of finishing the season in the top 3. The home team created three presentable goalscoring opportunities in the opening 1/2 hour but, all were off target. The first shot on target came from Josh Leeson on 32 minutes. Despite the visiting keeper’s best efforts, he couldn’t keep the ball out and Southwell took the lead. That lead was almost extended shortly after but the Bridgford keeper made two great saves within a minute to deny Morgan Shevlin. Half-time: 1-0. West Bridgford came out strongly in the second half and were on level terms on 52 minutes. However, Southwell responded quickly and regained the lead through Jack Walker only a minute later. The visitors were undeterred and looked likely to get back on level terms again. Southwell reshuffled their pack and changed formation to get some stability back in the defence. Eventually, the home team managed to regain their composure and start to venture into the opposition half again! A swift counter-attack down the right flank on 38 minutes involving Jack Walker and Morgan Shevlin, resulted in a dangerous cross to the near post. Josh Leeson timed his run perfectly and directed the ball past the keeper to score his 2nd of the afternoon and give the home team a 2 goal cushion. Southwell now played with confidence and came close to adding a 4th on three occasions in the final five minutes. Full-time: 3-1

In very blustery conditions, both teams made a determined start and there were threats on goal at either end, before Long Eaton managed to outwit the Arnold defence practically on the stroke of half time to take a vital lead through a Matt Cartwright goal. In the second half, Arnold appeared to be on the back foot until twenty five minutes in, when Will Rayment, after some classy build up play, put the ball in the net off the post. A galvanised Arnold hit the gas pedal and, shortly afterwards, Oliver Collins netted a well worked goal to give the home side the lead for the first time in the game. With ten minutes to go, Jack McLachlan scored with a volley from a clearance. Although Long Eaton continued to press, Arnold held on to claim all three points.

Lowdham’s local derby against Carlton Town started off with an earlier kick off at 10.30am. Well to be truthful Carlton started at 10.30am but Lowdham started at their usual time of 11.00am. Carlton had the better of the early exchanges went into a 3-0 lead as Josh brown completed his hat trick before Lowdham finally woke up to pull a goal back and go into the break trailing 3-1. The second half however was a different proposition as Lowdham had the better of the exchanges soon pulled it back to 3-3, with a Tom Martin brace and one from Joe Tomlinson,which on reflection was a fair result.

Southwell City Blue 2, Wollaton Hall & Bramcote Yellow 0

This was an enjoyable, competitive game between two equally matched teams. The first clear opening fell to the home team after only four minutes when, a deft touch from man of the match Harry Stanford put Jack Walker through on his favoured left foot unmarked in the box. Unfortunately, Jack fired the ball over the crossbar and immediately you could sense the home crowd already thinking ‘here we go again’! Both teams had several attempts a goal, mostly off target, although Morgan Shevlin tried an audacious overhead kick that the visiting keeper just managed to clip the ball over for a corner. Southwell had to wait until the 64th minute before the deadlock was broken. Tom Squires held off two strong challenges to find himself in the area with just the Wollaton keeper to beat. He feigned his shot (shaping himself to go across goal) which cleverly wrong footed the visiting keeper and rolled the ball in at the near post. On 80 minutes, Southwell were awarded a penalty after Morgan had been clearly pulled back in the area after smartly turning the Wollaton defender on the byline. Christian Butcher stepped up and confidently despatched his spot kick to the right of the keeper. After three consecutive defeats, Southwell were determined to hold on to their two goal advantage and get back to winning ways. Final score: 2-0.

Against the run of play West Bridgford opened the scoring with a well taken finish from a free kick. Basford continued to have more of the play, but West Bridgford kept plugging away, very untidily at times. They scored two more before half time, whilst Basford struggled to turn their pressure into anything more. The second half was similar, although West Bridgford  did improve slightly. Basford pulled one back through Tarell Peck, but then the home side increased their lead with a very lucky goal from a long free kick. Basford will feel aggrieved not to have got anything from the game that they more than deserved to. West Bridgford scorers were Joe Murray, Harry Wesson, Immanuel Dube and Freddie Elston.

Kimberley MW 4, Arnold Town Yellow 1

For the second week in a row, Arnold Town made an uninspired start, allowing the home side to dominate and to put three away by half time. Arnold started the second half with more purpose, but never looked like wresting the momentum back from a committed Kimberley team who defended with vigour and were always threatening on the counter. A goal from Chris Carter gave Arnold hope, but Kimberley netted their fourth within ten minutes and, from then on, there was no way back for the visitors. Kimberley’s scorers were Adam Loydall with a brace, Aaron Butler and Charley Hartshorn.

Wollaton Hall & Bramcote 2, Basford Utd CFC 1

A big game for both sides as the winner would advance to the final of the cup. Both teams turned up confident and hungry for a victory but it was Basford who started the brighter of the two sides taking an early lead through a shot on the turn that found its way through the bodies and into the bottom corner. Wollaton didn’t let heads go down and the score remained 0-1 going into the half time break, which Wollaton took full advantage of, taking the time to get recomposed and fired up again. Throughout the second half Wollaton looked much more in the game creating some good opportunities and moving the ball much better than the first half, but they remained a goal behind until skipper Jack Clark drilled home a free kick from a tight angle into the bottom corner. Now level and with the momentum Wollaton looked stronger than at any point throughout the game whilst Basford always looked dangerous on the break. Wollaton built on this this pressure until a combination of wingers, Kieran Baines crossed and Imad Barakji found the back of the net from six yards to put Wollaton up 2-1 with not a lot of time remaining. Now changing to a 4-5-1 formation, Wollaton saw out the remaining 10 minutes with a brilliant shift from Ben Williams upfront causing havoc among the Basford ranks. Wollaton now move onto the final where they will face either Alfreton Town or Carlton Town Lions.

AFC Vernon 2, Southwell City Blue 1

The visitors had five good chances in the first half but failed to convert any. The best chance fell to Tom Squires on 38 minutes shooting at an open goal and firing over. However, it was the home team who came closest to opening the scoring when hitting the underside of the crossbar midway through the half. Vernon took the lead just 4 minutes into the second half with a well struck, fierce shot by Jack Walls from the edge of the box on the far right-hand side. However, 6’3″ Ben Jackson in the Southwell goal was a little surprised to see it hit the back of the net as he would usually expect to save anything just above his head! Again Southwell failed to convert good, presentable goalscoring opportunities but finally got their reward on 73 minutes. Jack Walker scoring his first league goal of the season and celebrated like he’d just scored the winning goal in the FA cup final at Wembley!! The joy was short lived though, because only a minute later Vernon regained the lead through Louis Isbell who, capitalised on a blunder by the visitor’s keeper. Still time for Southwell to salvage something from the game but,  two more missed chances proved costly.

Luke Thompson thought he’d done so when poking the ball into the net but, much to his bemusement, was adjudged to have fouled the advancing keeper and a free-kick was awarded to Carlton.

With a place in the semi-finals of the cup at stake, Wollaton Hall & Bramcote  wanted to show what it meant to be a premier league side against first division opposition Eastwood Community. With the game being postponed last week due to a frozen pitch, Wollaton had an extra week to increase the fitness levels following the christmas break and it paid off. They took the lead early on through Thomas Whitchurch putting home the rebound from the keeper. Kieran Grieg then put Wollaton 2-0 up with a smart volleyed finish at the back post from a corner – only his second goal in 10 years! Second half and Wollaton started to slack off, and Eastwood made them pay, scoring two goals in quick succession and levelling the game. But being a premier league side meant character, and Wollaton bounced back in style scoring three goals in the last ten minutes of the game from three different scorers.

Arnold Town Yellow 3, Linby CW Youth 6

Arnold Town Yellow were unable to maintain their run of good form against a Linby team which rode its luck and were better able to take advantage of the few chances that came their way. Largely against the run of play, Linby were 2-0 to the good by the 25th minute, due to defensive blunders by the home team. Arnold were able to get one back through some smart build up play and a fine pass from Oliver Collins which allowed Angelo Georgiou to nudge the ball into the goal. However, another spell of weak Arnold defending allowed Linby to bag a third by the half time whistle. The second half appeared to start as the first ended and Linby scored early on, due to a breakdown in communication on the Arnold side. Arnold did rally and got two goals back through Jack McLachlan and appeared to have Linby on the rack, but let the opportunity pass and conceded two more goals for the game to go beyond their reach. Ryan Butler scored four of the Linby goals with Cameron Murdock getting a brace.

An exquisite lofted pass from Harvey King invited Luke Thompson to cross an equally inch perfect pass to Morgan Shevlin who, smashed the ball against the underside of the crossbar and Luke Thompson continued his run to head home the loose ball on 10 minutes. What followed was some superb passing moves from the home team and, but for some fine saves from the Lowdham keeper, the match could’ve been effectively won by half-time.

The second-half wasn’t quite as free flowing as the first, not helped by a pitch which became heavier by the minute. However, the home team managed to double their slender lead on 54 minutes when Morgan Shevlin’s shot from inside the area hit a defender and the ball looped over the keeper into the net.

Although Lowdham Colts Black have a higher league position the majority of the good football was played by the West Bridgford Foxes team and this was rewarded with an opening goal for them to go 1-0 up. West Bridgford then doubled their lead before missing a penalty, this seemed to wake-up Lowdham and they scored goals in quick succession to go into the break 3-2. The second half was pretty much the same and Lowdham ran out winners 6-4. Lowdham scorers were ben Martell (2), Lamar Griffiths (2), Nile Ions and Ollie McCourt.

Wollaton Hall & Bramcote 5, Nottz Coltz 5 (away win on pens 2-4)

AFC Vernon 2, Trowell 2

A hard fought game saw Trowell take the lead when Ethan Shaw was pulled back in the area, Brad Holmes tucked away the penalty, 0-1. Trowell should have been two up when Brad Holmes rounded the keeper only to put his shot in the side netting, 0-1 HT. Vernon started the second half strongly and put the Trowell defence under pressure, Trowell resisted until half way through the second half when Vernon forced the ball home from close range. Trowell responded instantly after some good work from Brad Holmes, Jacob Bannister found himself with an easy tap in. Vernon equalised with 15 minutes to go to create a frantic finish but neither team could get the winner, 2-2FT.

Lowdham Colts Red 2, Eastwood CFC Black 2

Eastwood CFC Black started the stronger and it was no surprise when they went 1-0 up after a great run deep from midfield and a cool shot past the Lowdham keeper. Lowdham had chances to equalize before half-time with George Gray being thwarted by the Eastwood keeper and slotting one narrowly over. Second half and again Eastwood started stronger and after a slick move went 2-0 up. Lowdham shuffled their pack, had a flurry of corners and hit the post three times and just when it looked as if Eastwood would see the game out with 8 minutes to go, Fraser Knox slipped in and finished coolly. 2-1 and game on and Lowdham got the equalizer four minutes later with Fraser Knox dinking it to Matt Buchan to power home for 2-2. Lowdham then almost got what would have been a cruel winner but Eastwood held out.

A reasonably even first 20 minutes saw good saves from the WB keeper deny Vernon who had half chances at the other end. That was until a great pass and then a composed finish from Harry Wesson saw WB start to take control. WB then got a deserved second from Patrick Ferguson to go into half time with a comfortable 2-0 lead.

The second half was different as WB lost their composure slightly and allowed Vernon back into with two goals, one from poor defending and the second a soft penalty, both of which were scored by Oliver Davy. From somewhere WB regained their confidence and the third goal duly arrived from Jack Hadley and led to a deserved, but close fought win.

 Nottz Coltz 1, Wollaton Hall & Bramcote 3

After a good result last week Wollaton continued their current run of form by beating a strong Nottz Coltz side by 3-1. Wollaton started a little shaky, coming under pressure for the first 10 minutes as Nottz Coltz played some fluent passing football but Wollaton had more of a cutting edge and took a 2-0 lead before the interval. Skipper Jack Clark found the ball at his feet, he split the defence with a cute chipped pass to Thomas Whitchuch who squared the ball for an easy finish for strike partner Kieran Baines. A similar situation saw Wollaton get their second, except this time Thomas Whitchurch buried the goal himself to take his side into half time 2-0 up.

Trowell 0, West Bridgford Utd 0

This was a great match to watch as Trowell created the better of the chances in the first half and if not for a goal line clearance and a great penalty save by the West Bridgford keeper, Josh Newnham, Trowell would have had the lead at half time. West Bridgford edged the second half as both teams battled hard for the elusive goal but Trowell stood strong and almost pinched it late on, but it wasn’t to be . A very entertaining 0-0 draw for the spectators.

Under 18 Division 2

Arnold Town Yellow 1, Kimberley MW 2

In a highly competitive match, Arnold Town started shakily, but soon established a dominance over a very good opposition. A crossbar rebound from an excellent Jack McLachlan shot was netted by the predatory Chris Carter to give Arnold the lead. However, this was never destined to be a match which would end with only one goal. Although Arnold had long spells in possession in the second half, creating a number of chances, they were unable to increase their lead and Kimberley were able to equalise with a well struck shot and then go ahead as a result of a rare moment of weakness from the Arnold defence.  Aaron Butler and Adam Loydall scored for Kimberley.

Trowell 2, Manor FC 3

In a great cup tie today both teams fought hard, Trowell were up against a strong Manor team but coped well in the early exchanges. Trowell broke the deadlock on 17 mins, Darian Archer firing in from close range, and then had a great chance to double the lead soon after and Manor also went close but for some excellent goalkeeping from Luis Croft to keep the half time score 1-0 in Trowell’s favour. Second half and Manor piled on the pressure and after a serious injury Trowell conceded two quick goals as Manor took the lead. Trowell tried to regroup as this didn’t faze them and they drew level when Ethan Shaw worked himself some space in the area to slot the ball home.

Wollaton & Bramcote Yellow 1, Linby CW Youth 5

Linby CW Youth came away from Wollaton Hall & Bramcote Yellow with a 5-1 victory.

Under 18 Premier Division

Wollaton Hall & Bramcote 4, Alfreton Town 4

After a close 2-0 loss to Alfreton last time around, Wollaton Hall & Bramcote were looking to improve on that result, however, it didn’t initially go to plan. Wollaton found themselves 2-0 down early on, but after calming down, getting the ball into feet, passing and moving, they soon found themselves back in it, and even took the lead 3-2 going into half time. However, right after the break Alfreton levelled the game. Wollaton kept calm and almost right from the kick off pushed up the field and won a penalty, which was converted by Thomas Whitchurch to once again give Wollaton the lead. But unfortunately they could not hold on to win and Alfreton levelled once again. Still a huge point for Wollaton, the first points Alfreton have dropped this season, thanks to a Kieran Baines hat trick from the Wollaton striker.

Although Eastwood almost opened the scoring when hitting the post on 18 minutes but, it was to be Christian’s day as he smashed a loose ball into the back of the net from 6 yards out on 27 minutes. And just 4 minutes later, Luke scored in similar fashion latching onto another loose ball in front of goal. It was an even, and at times scrappy, 2nd half but Luke secured victory for the home team with a fantastic finish following an excellent passing move on 85 minutes.

 West Bridgford Utd 2, Carlton Town Yellow 0

In a tight game between two very good teams, Carlton Town Yellow lost their unbeaten record as two second half goals gave West Bridgford Utd a 2-0 win. The home team hit the woodwork twice in the first half whilst league leaders Carlton had their chances to score.

On a testing pitch, these two teams played a tigerish contest from start to finish. The visitors had an early dominance, finally capitalising with a goal from Jack McLachlan. However, Toton rallied and were able to first equalise and then take the lead, due to some indifferent defending from Arnold. The start of the second half saw more of the same and Toton extended their lead to 3-1. Eventually, Arnold began to assert a grip on the match and got back on the scoresheet with a fine free kick from Jack McLachlan. Both teams became increasingly determined to ensure that they stay in contention. Arnold equalised with a great individual goal from James Wade and then, in the dying seconds, Jamie Ditchfield headed what proved to be the winner from a corner. Tigers goalscorers were Josh Maxwell (2) and Sam Bunting.

Ten-man Trowell fought valiantly and for the next 15 minutes they knocked the ball about well and got the equalizer they deserved, Harry Soteriou converting from the penalty spot. Lowdham cranked it up again and Alex Cotterill powered through and was brought down. He got up and struck the perfect free kick from 30 yards into the top corner. Lowdham try hard but can’t get the third before half-time with Trowell working the wings well on the break.

What a game of two halves. Great football saw West Bridgford Utd go in somehow only one goal up at half time through a Patrick Ferguson goal.

The best being a 30 yard screamer for the third goal, Charlie Taylor, Callum Price and Connor Clarke scoring for Eastwood.

This was a traditional game of football, close all the way through by two teams who worked hard and never let either play too much football. All the lads deserve credit for the effort shown out there today. Goals from Harry Gill and Ross Garlick saw West Bridgford edge the first half with a 2-0 advantage. A third should by Ethan Henderson should have left it comfortable to finish, but Sherwood got a deserved goal through Angus Nicholson and built up the pressure as they went in search of further goals. They could not get another from their next 20 minutes of pressure, before West Bridgford got back on top and played the game out.

 Southwell City Blue 0, AFC Vernon 2

 Newark Town Warriors 3, Arnold Town Yellow 2

In this tightly contested game, honours went to Newark Town Warriors by the odd goal of five against Arnold Town Yellow, as the home team showed attacking flair and staunch defending in turn. Newark opened the scoring, but Arnold quickly retaliated and took a 2-1 lead, courtesy of Chris Carter and Jack McLachlan respectively. However, Arnold lost their momentum and a succession of sloppy defending errors meant that Newark regained the ascendancy and got back to 3-2. In the second half, a more determined Arnold posed a constant threat to the Newark, keeping the home team contained in their own half for much of the time and defending with greater vigour. At the business end, Arnold were unable to capitalise on their dominance and Newark claimed the three points.

A great cup game with both teams going for it from start to finish. A great performance from Sam Richardson which helped Newark Town Colts into the next round.

And, after a couple of early warnings, Newark took the lead on 12 minutes with a straightforward long ball down the middle to Ben Baldwin who made no mistake with his shot. A minute later, Newark won the ball just outside their own box and launched the ball long for Elden-Day Harrison to run onto and double their lead. Newark were playing some terrific football and, at this stage, were tearing Southwell apart at will. However, the home team managed to create a couple of chances around the 20 minute mark which gave them some belief that perhaps this cup-tie wasn’t over! The rest of the 1st half was an even contest with both teams coming close to scoring. Half time: 0-2.

 Sutton Athletic 3, Southwell City Blue 2

Southwell City went out of the competition, losing by the odd goal of five at Sutton Athletic. Bryce Griffin and Luke Thompson scored second half goals for Southwell. A tough encounter that was stop/start due to the number of infringements committed! The visitors had more attempts at goal in the first half but, were restricted to long range efforts that were mostly off target. It was the hosts who opened the scoring when the Sutton forward cleverly created enough space to despatch his shot from the edge of the area into the bottom right-hand corner of the net. Half time: 1-0. Southwell started the second half in determined fashion looking to get back on level terms. But, it was the hosts who doubled their advantage with their first venture into the opposition half after the break. Again, the Sutton forward created enough space to shoot from outside the box on 54 minutes and, this time, the ball somehow rolled between the keepers legs and over the line. Southwell continued to press forward but found the Sutton keeper on top form making a string of fine saves. The visitors thought their dominance was finally rewarded on 66 minutes but, one of the Southwell players was adjudged to have been in an offside position during the build-up to Bryce’s shot at goal. However, Bryce was not to be denied when he made no mistake a minute later firing in a shot at the far post. Everyone in the Southwell camp now believed their team would go on to win this tie but, were given another set-back when Sutton scored a third in another rare excursion into the visitors half. The goal came from a corner on 71 minutes when, a loose ball fell kindly at the feet of the Sutton forward who fired the ball into the roof of the net. The visitors continued to create numerous chances but had to wait until the 89th minute to reduce the deficit with a spectacular overhead kick from Luke Thompson. Following a lengthy delay due to a bad injury, the official indicated there were 4 minutes remaining. Plenty of time for an equaliser! Unfortunately for Southwell, they couldn’t convert any of the five great chances created in added time. Credit must be given to Sutton who showed great determination to preserve their lead right up to the final whistle. The disappointment of the Southwell players was clear for everyone to see at the end. They knew how well they had played but it’s another lesson to learn. Final score: 3-2

Another tight, evenly contested match although a little scrappy at times. The hosts came closest to scoring in the first half but, found the visiting keeper on top form denying both Luke and Alec with two great saves. Half-time: 0-0. It was Sherwood who opened the scoring early in the second half when a long ball down the middle and, behind the home defence, found Keenan Duggins who used his pace to beat the advancing home keeper and slide the ball into the corner of the net. Southwell were given the opportunity to get back on level terms within 5 minutes when, a visiting defender was adjudged to have handled the ball in the area. Morgan Shevlin converted the penalty low to the keepers left. This was now anybody’s game as both teams went in search for a second goal but, both defences held firm. With 10 minutes remaining, a Harry Stanford corner for the home team was too close to the keeper but, the ball slipped from his grasp and Sam Leeson was quickest to latch onto the loose ball to stab home from close range. The Sherwood keeper was desperately unlucky as he had been playing so well all match. On 85 minutes, Morgan Shevlin scored his second goal and effectively secured three points for the home team.

Kieren Beales, Mitchell Davies, Alex Dodd and Harry Gill shared the Eastwood goals. Ousman Cham completed his hat trick for Carlton.

Alfreton Town 11, Nottz Coltz 2

This was a dominant performance by Alfreton Town in which they played fluent, passing football.  They were rewarded by an 11 -2 win over Nottz Coltz who put in a performance which was well below par.  The highlight from Coltz’ point of view was two debut goals by Jassi Singh

AFC Vernon 1, Newark Town Colts 3

Newark Town came away with all three points in their match at AFC Vernon. In a competitive game Lewis Stott grabbed a brace and Luke McClymont was also on target for the visitors. Malachi Keane netted for Vernon on the stroke of half time.               

Sherwood FC 1, West Bridgford Utd 10

West Bridgford Utd controlled the first half at Sherwood FC, with goals from Harry Wesson and Patrick Ferguson. Sherwood had the occasional opportunity, but they were limited whilst the visitors squandered several chances.

The second half started with a goal in the first 30 seconds from West Bridgford, but Sherwood’s heads never dropped. More goals followed, but Sherwood’s consolation goal was the cream of the crop, a screamer from 30 yards out into the top corner. Harry Wesson finished with five goals, Patrick Ferguson 3, Ross Garlick and Niall Stubbs got one each. Malachi Fyffe-Ivey scored a consolation goal for Sherwood.              

Southwell City 0, Basford Utd CFC 1

This was a very evenly contested match played in testing weather conditions. Both teams played very well, hitting the post and had ‘one-on-one’ chances to score. The only difference was, Basford converted their chance as Jack Shaw scored in the 33rd minute to give them all three points.

Arnold Town Yellow 2, Bilborough Town 3

In the first-ever meeting of these two teams, Bilborough Town had the best of the first half, confounding a frequently disorganised Arnold defence and repelling any Arnold attacking moves. Two well taken goals gave Town a deserved lead at half time. The start of the second half saw a reorganised home side take the reins and get the score back on level terms with a fine solo effort from Jack McLachlan and a well taken header from Jack Simpson-Hallas. However, sustained pressure from Bilborough brought them a third and decisive goal. Greg brown, Ryan Cumberland and Ben Jones were the Bilborough scorers.
