Southwell City move top of Notts Senior League Premier Division with 7-0 win over Eastwood Development
Southwell City moved top despite Bingham Town’s 1-0 win at Sandiacre Town.
After their cup exploits in the week Bingham entered the weekend leading the Premier Division of the Nottinghamshire Senior League.
However, they were leapfrogged by Southwell, who now have a better goal difference after beating Eastwood CFC Development 7-0.
Dan Gleeson and skipper Bradley Peace-McDonald scored two apiece alongside efforts from Callum Barnes, Calum Law and Stewart Gill.
Southwell flew to a 2-0 lead inside 15 minute after Gleeson and Peace-McDonald scored.
The latter scoring from the spot, a somewhat rare occurrence for Southwell in recent times after numerous missed penalties.
The pick of the goals came late in the day though, with Barnes scoring from 25 yards.
His strike dipped and bounced away from the keeper before crossing the line.
Peace-McDonald was scorer of the goal of the day though, bringing the ball down on the edge of the box on his chest, before cleverly keeping it up with a few kick-ups, only to back heel the ball in without it touching the floor.
Southwell will look to build on their +42 goal difference, which is joint-highest in the league, when they travel to relegation-threatened Magdala Amateurs on Saturday (2pm kick off).
Elsewhere in the Premier Division, the Cranmers good form came to an end at the hands of Keyworth United.
Aslockton & Orston, who, after a difficult start to the season had won three on a bounce, before losing the run in a 2-1 defeat to Keyworth.
James Hallam netted for The Cranmers after Ryan Tinsley’s brace.
In Division One, Hucknall Development were three to the good in a raging contest at Robin Hood Colts, but the hosts fought back through Nathan Taylor, Mark Barnaby and Jordan Smith to claim a share of the spoils in a game that finished nine-a-side.
Also in Division One, Southwell Reserves edged past East Bridgford AFC, 1-0. It was the reserve side’s fourth league win of the season and moved them up to 11th.
In Division Two, Bingham Reserves were 5-1 losers at Stapleford Town Reserves.
