Competition : NCEL Division One
Result : Shirebrook Town 5 Askern Villa 0
Attendance : 112
Shirebrook Town, looking for a seconfd half of the season promotion push back to the NCEL Premier League, Askern Villa, who have recently gone through wholesale changes, will be happy to survive this season.
Askern Villa are one of three Doncaster located, NCEL Division clubs, Rossington Main share status in the First Division, whilst Armthorpe Welfare currently reside in the NCEL Premier Division.
Today was Askern Villa's first match back after they had previously postponed games due to being unable to field a team and were also granted permission by the NCEL League itself.

Shirebrook Town, had a great "community feel" to the club, talking with supporters pre-match, they were 100% behind the club, so much so that they're deciding on whether to take a supporter's bus to away games. Nothing unusual in that if you're following a club from the higher levels of non-league football and the Football League, but when a club has attendances from 59 to 112 (highest NCEL Div1 crowd of the season at Langwith Road today) , the supporters have to be applauded.
