What Happened In The National League North On Saturday?

By Tom Scott

The stuff might have stopped falling from the sky - but the goals rained down on the National League North on Saturday.

Fans were treated to a goal fest across the division as some bold performances produced some big results.

Goals from Wes York and Jimmy Armson had Brackley two goals to the good at the Impact Arena.

Matt Lowe and Lee Ndlovu added another two after the break before Alfreton mounted a late revival - Bobby Johnson and Ben Tomlinson's goals proving to be consolation goals.

Farsley are doing their best to keep in touch with the top seven and showed their desire at Darlington.

The Celts fell behind twice at Blackwell Meadows, but goals from Jimmy Spencer, Dave Syers and Adam Clayton saw them home and dry in the second half.

King's Lynn suffered another shock result, this time at the hands of Guiseley.

Felix Kaine's goal after the half-hour mark was enough for the Lions - King's Lynn remain two points off the top.

Spennymoor made it 15 goals at home in their last four games with another convincing win.

The victims this time were Hereford who fell behind through Glen Taylor's early penalty before Tyler Hornby-Forbes and Mark Anderson added more, Taylor finished it off with another late on.

Curzon Ashton pulled themselves clear of the bottom two with a big win away at fellow strugglers Bradford (Park Avenue).

Mike Calveley hit the winner on the stroke of half-time with Fabio Taveres also notching six minutes from time.

Elsewhere, AFC Telford got their first win in four after putting three past Kettering Town.

Ryan Sears marked his debut with the opener before goals from Ryan Barnett and Aaron Williams ended the game as a contest.

But there was still time for a bit of magic from the visitors. Omari Sterling-James hit a rocket from 20-yards to give the travelling Poppies something to celebrate.
