Bradford Park Avenue

Forward Alex Hurst netted as Park Avenue gained a much needed win. After five games without a win Bradford beat Gloucester City 2-0 in the FA Trophy with Hurst netting the crucial second goal. The Gloucester side included former Valiant Jennison Myrie-Williams.


Defender Kieran Kennedy made his second debut for Wrexham as a first-half substitute during a thrilling 3-3 draw with Yeovil. The Wrexham squad also included former Valiants Rob Lainton and sub Mark Harris. The home side were winning 3-2 after 47 minutes only for Yeovil to pull a late goal back as it ended all-square.

Ilkeston Town

Young left-back Ryan Campbell-Gordon played for an hour as Ilkeston lost a friendly game with Chesterfield 2-1.

Market Drayton Town

Young midfielder Lucas Green-Birch played again as Market Drayton’s upturn in form continued. Town moved out of the bottom two after a 1-0 win over Glossop – it was the side’s third win in their last four games.

Stafford Rangers

Midfielder Joe Berks wasn’t involved as Rangers slumped to a 3-1 loss against  Hyde side which played former Vale striker Dan Turner upfront.
