Newark Town find their form against Dinnington Town and move from the foot of the Central Midlands North Division table

By Connor Thompson

Newark Town have moved from the foot of the table after beating Dinnington Town.

Manager Damo Parkinson previously targeted mid-table as his end of season goal, and said his first challenge was to lift the confidence of his players and get his side off the bottom.

Having moved ahead of Central Midland North Division rivals Thorne Colliery ­— a side they beat home and away ­— Town are now three points from tenth, and have a game in hand on the sides around them.

Collingham’s Station Road saw strong winds, which made play difficult as high balls screwed out of play, but after Town had a penalty claim turned down, the frustrated, but inspired Blues, found the back of the net.

The goal came from debutant Tyler Martin, who had transferred to the step-seven club from Newark Flowserve Reserves, where he scored 20 goals in 20 appearances.

Martin latched on to Rhys Stanley’s through ball and fired a left-footed drive from the 18-yard box past the keeper.

Josh Desforges was called upon in the second period, but he equal to the visitors’ efforts.

On Saturday, Town travel to Retford.
