Newark Alliance Gameweek 9 - Tough Trinity side toppled by Sheaf, Robin Hood fire six in Notts Senior Trophy and Sutton overtake Fernwood to go top
Wheatsheaf united conceded four at Coronation Street Park, but still managed to take the points in a nine-goal Newark Alliance thriller.
Liam Moran put hosts Holy Trinity ahead after 12 minutes, but it was the visitors who took the lead into half-time, after efforts from Calum Law (2) and Ollie Clarke.
Law was first to respond, with his deflected free-kick finding a way in, before slotting home with his left to put Sheaf ahead — Clarke then made it three before the break.
Brothers Kieran and Bradley Wells announced themselves to the tie in the second-half, each finding the back of the net, all but securing the three points with the score at 5-1.
Trinity’s Richard Dyson and Patrick Swaby each fired late goals, before Moran hit his second to make it 5-4, but the Southwell side did enough in the first half to leave with the points.
Newark Town doubled their points tally with their second win in three games after cruising past Collingham 4-1.
Familiar faces were on the scoresheet for Town as Kieran Job (2) Jimmy Rusby and Thomas Perkins all found the back of the net, while Matthew Evans was Collingham’s only goalscorer as life in the Premier Division continues to throw up surprises for last year’s Division One winners.
Lloyd Hanratty’s brace ensured the points returned to Grantham as Genes beat Witham 3-0.
Haydn Havard also struck for Genes.
Tylor Brandan Leeds hat-trick moved Robin Hood into the next round of the Notts Senior Trophy as they beat New Boys 6-2.
Eden Homer, Toby Musgrave and Jordan Roberts also chipped in with goals.
Rose & Crown were knocked out of the trophy in a home walkover after failing to get a side together, while RHP Reserves fell to a 2-1 defeat at home to Clifton United, ending their cup run in the first round.
Nick Dunn put RHP ahead with a strike from 25 yards, but two second half goals from Tom Dearman gave his side the win.
Sutton are the new leaders in Division Two after beating Fernwood 4-0.
Cameron Saville struck at the end of the first half, and the hosts built on their lead in the second period when sloppy defending allowed Ethan Wilson to poke home from six yards out.
Saville and George Cook both hit goals late in the half to wrap up the victory.
