PENISTONE Church dedicated their 5-1 home win over Premier Division promotion rivals Thackley to club volunteer Charlie Wyatt who died last week.

Charlie was a well-known character in Barnsley non-league football, having previously been involved at Worsbrough Bridge.

Church are sixth with 43 points from 26 games so are two points off the play-offs with 12 games to play.

They bounced back from a 4-1 loss at Rossington Main and have won six of their last eight.

Nathan Keightley scored in the sixth minute then the other five goals arrived during a nine-minute spell midway through the second half.

Antony Brown and Keightley made it 3-0 then, after Thackley replied, Keightley completed his hat-trick and Brown netted again.

Coach Brett Lovell said: “Did we deserve to win 5-1? Being selfish I don’t care.

“The lads deserve it for their endeavour to get a result for the club and Charlie.

“We said to the lads ‘let’s get the result as a tribute to Charlie’ and they’ve duly delivered.

“People will talk about Ant Brown and Nathan Keightley and rightly so, they’ve scored the goals.

“But there were a lot of good performances. James Stafford returned after time on the sidelines with. concussion and he’s been fantastic.

“There’s no better phrase to use than ‘it’s a squad game’ and we’ve proven that again.

“I can’t sing the lads’ praises high enough.”
