Newark Alliance Gameweek 10: RHP hit eight to go five clear, Grove upset Rose & Crown and Walesby record second win




The gap at the top of the Newark Alliance Premier Division extended to five points after RHP’s eight-goal showing against Wheatsheaf United.

The 8-1 for the league leaders capped off a good performance, which was led by captain Adam Boddy, who scored his first of five goals after a chaotic opening ten minutes.

Lewis Chambers’ brace extended the lead to three, before Sheaf’s Adam Allsopp pulled one back before half-time.

But any chances of a comeback were cancelled when Boddy, who was in inspired form in front of goal, fired his second, only to follow it up with a further hat-trick of goals.

Lewis Stott hit RHP’s eighth.

In Division One, Andrew Smith and Robbie Puttergill wrapped up a 2-0 victory for Old Magnusians against Robin Hood Colts.

The headline tie in the division saw an eight-goal thriller between Rose & Crown and Grove FC, and it was the former who raced to a two-goal lead.

But Grove fought back through efforts from Conor Scott and Sam Cragg.

The end-to-end game saw Rose regain the lead early in the second period, before Dom Swingler’s tap-in, that again levelled things up.

Scott then rounded off a passing move to put Grove ahead for the first time, and with five minutes left, Jacob Foreman added a fifth to secure the 5-3 win.

Division Two’s top-scorer Christopher Wareham was among the goals as Newark Cavaliers beat RHP Reserves 2-0.

Jack Salmon also found the back of the net.

Bleasby doubled their points tally with their second win of the season, a 6-1 victory over Team Knowhow.

In the Notts Sunday Cup, there was an all Premier Division tie, which needed penalties to find a winner.

And it was Walesby’s Zak Argyle who was the hero of the shoot-out, making two strong saves to knock Newark Flowserve out of the cup with a 5-4 penalty win, following a 3-3 draw over 120 minutes.

Richard Willatt also hit a hat-trick for Walesby in the win.

It was also the end of Witham Wanderers’ cup run after a 4-3 loss to Bassingham Buglehorns, while Laxton Athletic faced the same fate, as Notts Sunday Premier League side QA First ran out 5-1 winners.

Laxton trailed by one goal for most of the game, before a flurry of QA goals sealed the win.
