Welfare hit top spot

In the Senior Division, Kimberley MW were involved in a lively 3-3 draw away at Attenborough, a result that put the visitors top of the league.

Kimberley led on 25 minutes through Shaw Hutchinson’s penalty, but the home side turned the game around to lead by half-time thanks to strikes for Matt Popple and Nelson.

Hutchinson then missed from the penalty spot in the second-half before Ian Shepherd was sent off for his second bookable offence and things looked bleak for Kimberley, but sub Juan Vickers soon made it 2-2 from close range.

Ramsey put Attenborough back in front, but with eight minutes to go Jake Fisher levelled once again to seal a point.

A top-of-the table clash will see Kimberley visit second-placed Hucknall Rolls on Saturday, kick-off 3pm at Watnall Road.

Elsewhere in the Senior Division, Selston beat Sandhurst 3-0 with two goals from Jake Wright and the other from Richard Jeffrey.

In Division One, Underwood Villa were beaten 2-1 at West Bridgford, while in Division Two Underwood’s reserves lost 4-2 at home to Ashland Rovers.

In Notts Intermediate Cup action, Awsworth Villa smashed FC Samba 5-1, Greg Ellis scoring twice with Luke Henson, Joe Maguire and Kieran Saxton also on target.

Away from the Notts Senior League, Kimberley Miners Welfare B won 4-2 away at Rushcliffe Dynamo.

Kimberley were severely depleted but after Sam Doherty made two good early saves, Chris Coleman and Luke Grinham soon had Welfare two goals ahead.

Man-of-the-match Max Wright then hit the third with a stunning 25-yard volley.

Makowlski added a fourth after half-time, and despite two late Rushcliffe goals Kimberley were well worth their win.
