High fives for Sports

NEWLY-promoted this season to the Premier Division, Matlock Sports have opened the scoring in all of their matches.

And that was the case again last Saturday. However, unlike previously, when they ended up losing, this time they went on to beat Newmount 5-2.

Joe Highfield and Connor Bell both hit braces as Sports recorded their first win of the campaign.

Wirksworth Town also hit five goals - and without reply - as they beat Derby Rolls-Royce Leisure.

Carl Moore led the rout with a hat-trick and James Newton notched the other two.

Five was a popular score with Allenton United hitting that total to defeat Holbrook St Michaels who netted twice themselves in a 5-2 defeat.

Nathan Sandar and Michael Tristram both bagged a brace in the win with Dave Carr scoring the other for the defending champions.

On the other side of the coin, Willington, having frightened off all of the rabbits, beat Ashover 1-0 with Rob Cox scoring the all-important goal.

Chellaston went down 2-0 at home to Derby Royals while Mickleover RBL, thanks to a Michael Sladen goal, shared the points with Rowsley ‘86 in a 1-1 draw.

Sandiacre Town and Cromford also drew, the game finishing 2-2. Adam Munn and Nathaniel Daley both scored for the Saints.

Swanwick Pentrich Road went down 2-0 at home to Melbourne Dynamo, Lee Scott and Adam Ross on target.

There were only three matches in division one, but this should increase now with Tibshelf joining the section.

In division two, Allenton United Reserves just failed to match the scoring of their first team as they beat Derby Royals Reserves 4-3 with two goals from Declan Jennings and one each from Ross Lloyd and Ryan O’Connor.

Playing their first home game of the season, Ambergate beat Pastures Reserves 3-1, Craig Kitson hitting a brace and Rich Tomlinson the other in the win.
