All Saturday’s National League North Action

By Sam Elliott

We have new National League North leaders for the first time since November.

With King’s Lynn’s trip to Altrincham postponed, York City knew a win at Kidderminster Harriers would mean they finally overhaul the table toppers.

They did just that - a 1-0 victory was secured by Dan Maguire and manager Steve Watson said: “It sounds as if I am rolling out the clichés, but it really is that simple - we can only worry about what we do.”

Boston United kept up the pressure as they edged past AFC Telford with a 1-0 win.

Don Knowles’ penalty made it six wins from six for the Pilgrims and manager Craig Elliott said: “It’s another excellent win.”

But Matt Lowe’s winner for Brackley may well have ended Chester’s title challenge - the Saints taking it 3-2, days after the Blues beat the leaders in dramatic style.

Spennymoor were the day’s most impressive winners. They shook Alfreton 5-0, Rob Ramshaw at the double.

Omar Holness rescued a point for Darlington late on after Hereford thought they had done enough to claim all three points. It ended 2-2 at Edgar Street.

It was the same scoreline at Nethermoor as Gateshead and Guiseley played out an entertaining draw.

Farsley kept their play-off hopes alive with a 2-0 win over Blyth Spartans, who remain six points from safety.

Meanwhile Leamington beat Southport 1-0 thanks to a late Joe Parker goal.
