NPL round-up | Tuesday 7 November

By James Gordon

There were two very intriguing results in the latest midweek Northern Premier League fixtures.

The most eye-catching result of the night came at Sandy Lane, where Worksop Town bounced back from their FA Cup exit by thrashing Morpeth Town 7-0.

Vaughan Redford scored a hat-trick for the Tigers, while much of the damage came when Paul Green, Liam Hughes and Jay Rollins all scored inside the opening 20 minutes.

Aleksandrs Starcenko also added his name to the scoresheet 18 minutes from time as Worksop climbed up to third in the league table.

Meanwhile, Hyde United were beaten 2-1 at home by Whitby Town.

Brad Fewster and Junior Mondal were on the scoresheet for the Seasiders as they returned to the Yorkshire Coast with three points to their name.

Hyde, meanwhile, missed the chance to climb up to third as their indifferent recent form continued.

The night's other scheduled fixture between Warrington Rylands and Marske United was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
