Manton Inn 2

Despite a nervy last 20 minutes, Shireoaks Inn came away with all three points quite comfortably in this Worksop Division Three clash.

Shireoaks dominated the first half and found themselves 4-0 up at half-time.

A nice through ball from Socik set up Nathon Haigh to score the first easily.

The second came from Steve Hemmings on 31 minutes with a lovely finish into the bottom right of the net.

The third was an own goal on 33 minutes and the fourth came from Socik, after ggeat work from Josh Atkinson and Oliver Norton on the left allowed him to slot home.

Shireoaks started the second half in style with Haigh’s second.

In a lighter moment, Haigh squared the ball for Socik only for him to sky the ball from two yards out with the keeper no where to be seen.

Manton then came into the game, getting one back.

Adam Cunnigham, on as substitute, came up with the sixth on 76 minutes.

Manton then scored a free-kick with five minutes to go, but couldn’t close the gap further before full-time.

Mark Fielding was the outstanding player.

Woodsetts Welfare 4

Swan FC 1

Woodsetts took control of the game in the first 15 minutes with two goals from Liam Aubrey.

The third came after half an hour courtesy of a penalty given for handball, converted by Aubrey to seal his first half hat-trick.

The second half followed in much the same manner as the first, with sustained Woodsetts pressure but their finishing was not as clinical as in the first half.

On the hour mark Swan converted a penalty, again given for handball.

With 15 minutes to go Rob Link scored from outside the area to seal the game for Woodsetts.

Division Two

Kilton Rovers 2

Breakers Wasps 4

The Wasps continued their fantastic form by beating a physical Kilton side.

Talisman Fraser Evans put Breakers in front when he volleyed home a Chris Rose cross on 10 minutes.

Kilton equalised on 20 minutes through a free-kick but their celebrations were short lived as a minute later Evans lobbed the Kilton keeper from 30 yards out.

Evans was on target again when he rounded the advancing keeper to score his hat-trick.

Wasps started the second half with determination and a beautiful lofted pass from Rose found Evans who calmly finished for his and Breakers’ fourth goal.

Kilton got a late consolation but it was Breakers who claimed three points to stay top of the table.

One of Worksop’s most successful teams in recent times folded last weekend, after struggling for players for a number of weeks.

Vine FC have won every Sunday League trophy in their eight year history, including a treble when known as Newcastle Arms and a double under the name of Manton Sports.

A league spokesman said: “The league would like to thank Tony Carter and most recently Stephen Comparetto for their hard work and commitment in recent years to keep the club running.”

The futures of key Vine players is uncertain however former Vine manager Comparetto is set to be appointed in a managerial role at Shireoaks Sports.

He will look forward to rejoining forces with Daniel Webster as a centre-half replacement for Thomas James, who has recently quit for undisclosed personal reasons.
