Curry is too hot for Nash to han­dle

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - CURZON ASH­TON 1 HAR­RO­GATE TOWN 2 By Dave Jones

SUB­STI­TUTE Mitchell Curry hit a late win­ner as league lead­ers Har­ro­gate Town over­came Curzon Ash­ton to stretch their ad­van­tage at the sum­mit, main­tain­ing their un­beaten away record at the Tame­side Sta­dium in the process.

The ta­ble top­pers first went ahead af­ter ten min­utes, when a clear­ance fell to Joe Leesley, whose shot de­flected off Nash de­fender Danny Shaw then flew past keeper Cam Ma­son into the cor­ner of the net.

The Nash equalised just 12 min­utes late, when in­flu­en­tial mid­fielder Chris Rowney won a great tackle 25 yards from goal.

Rowney played the ball to cap­tain Joe Guest, he found Ben Whar­ton who held the ball up on the edge of the box for Rowney to meet it and fire a screamer into the top right hand cor­ner of James Belshaw’s net.

But all of the hosts’ hard work was un­done three min­utes from time through Town’s only real ef­fort of the sec­ond half.

A cross from the right found sub Curry and de­spite ap­peals for off­side, he slot­ted past Ma­son to give the York­shire­men a vic­tory that moves them three points clear of sec­ond-place Sal­ford City.

STAR MAN: Chris Rowney (Curzon Ash­ton) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
