DEARNE and District dropped their first points of the Central Midlands League season as they drew 1-1 at home to second-bottom Harworth Colliery on Saturday.

It was Dearne’s first game since November 25 due to a series of postponements for poor weather.

They had won all 16 games in the first half of the season.

Harworth had a man sent off in the second half but still took the lead from the penalty spot. Curtis Wilkinson levelled.

Dearne are 13 points clear at the top as they aim to reach the Northern Counties East League.

Meanwhile, Elite AFC won 5-0 at home to Yorkshire Main.

Sam Limber and Robbie Wood bagged braces with Tommy Pallett also netting.

Manager Shane Pallett said: “Three points, a clean sheet and a quality performance. I can’t ask for much more than that.
