Southwell City’s lead in the Samba Nottinghamshire Senior League, supported by Euro Soccer Company, Premier Division is down to two points after they lost 1-0 at Magdala Amateurs while Stapleford Town triumphed 4-2 in a tempestuous encounter at Calverton Miners Welfare. Calverton had twice led in the match with James Davis putting them ahead after an Adam Hassell penalty had cancelled out Ethan Hunter’s opener. The hosts were down to nine men at this point as Alex Clarson had received his marching orders for a late tackle in the first half and Ethan Hunter went following an altercation with James McKeever that also saw the Stapleford player sent for an early bath. Hassall levelled from the spot once more after George Scrivener had brought him down in the box. A late Mitchell Robinson header and Hassall tapping in for his hat-trick completed the turnaround.
Ryan Clements struck for Magdala in the 87th minute to secure the points against Southwell, after it looked like his side’s chance had gone following an earlier missed penalty.
