Norristhorpe recovered from conceding an early goal to run out impressive 5-1 winers at home to FC Headingley in Yorkshire Amateur League Division Three last Saturday.

Headingley went ahead with a header following a cross from the left and it took time for Norristhorpe to settle, although they did manage to regroup and scored an equaliser before half-time.

Headingleysuffered a couple of injuries during the first half but with no substitutes available, their players were forced to continue carrying knocks.

This proved decisive as Norristhorpe used all three of their substitutes in the second half and with fresh legs, the home side managed to score four goals without reply.

Scott Milloy grabbed the pick of his side’s goals with a terrific shot into the top corner.

Lewis Collinson bagged a brace, while Josh Coppin and James Scurrah were also on target for Norristhorpe, who moved up to second place in the table.

Williams equalised with an excellent direct free-kick only for Colton toregain the lead after half-time through Vickers.

Wheelwright weathered further Colton pressure before they secured a share of the spoils when Williams bagged a second free-kick nine minutes from full-time, Dewsbury Rangers Reserves moved up to second place in Division Five thanks to a 4-0 victory over Shire Academics Thirds.
