Darren Fell took his tally to eight in the last two games when helping Thorne Colliery post a 7-2 win over Central Midlands League North Division bottom club Welbeck Welfare, writes Steve Hossack.

Fell bagged a four-goal haul for the second successive game as the Doncaster side continue to shine in the closing weeks of a generally disappointing campaign.

Kirk Frost chipped in with a brace with Kyle Palmer getting in on the act.

Askern held title favourites Bilsthorpe to a 1-1 draw.

The home side deservedly led at the break, courtesy of a 15th minute Joe Byron strike, after enjoying the better of the first half exchanges.

Bilsthorpe raised their game in the second half and drew level through Keenan Leeds.

But despite having another 20 minutes or so to claim the winner, they failed to do so and paid the price as Westella VIP replaced them at the top following their 3-0 win at Glapwell.

But, being just one point behind with a game in hand going into the last weekend of the season, they remain favourites.

Harworth Colliery slumped to a 5-1 defeat in their penultimate game away to Clay Cross Town, who climbed into second spot on goal difference.

Harworth were always fighting a losing battle and trailed 3-0 at the break.

Nathan Millington gave them a glimmer of hope when pulling it back to 3-1 after the restart but the home side dashed any comeback hopes they my have entertained with another brace.

Despite the result Harworth will finish the highest-placed Doncaster area side.
