AFC Rushden & Diamonds secured their place in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier
League First Division South play-offs after a four-goal first half burst killed
off Carlton Town at the Dog & Duck/
However, Shawn Richards` fifth goal from a free-kick on the edge of the area was
perhaps the pick of the bunch.
Leek Town mirrored Diamonds` scoreline at Harrison Park against Gresley FC with
Sam Grimshaw`s 35th minute effort with a neat turn and shot from 20 yards being
a worthy one to make it a nap hand.
Rugby Town`s 3-1 Butlin Road defeat by Kidsgrove Athletic signalled the end of
the Warwickshire side`s tenure in the division, and Lee Pickerill`s 52nd minute
equaliser for Grove, driven home on the half-volley from the edge of the box,
was a real killer blow for Valley.
And how about Brodie Lichfield`s coolness in the box when giving Stocksbridge
Park Steels an 8th minute lead at Bracken Moor against Bedworth United?
