Lions go top after back to back wins

Heanor Town FC continued their good start to the season on Tuesday night by earning a 2-1 win against visitors Pickering Town at the Town Ground.

This now means the Lions have six points out of six so far this season, following their opening day victory over hosts Albion Sports on Saturday.

They are currently top of the Northern Counties East League Premier Division table, albeit at a very stage of the season.
The visitors from North Yorkshire took the lead on Tuesday night after just six minutes through a goal from Tony Hackworth.
That is how the score stayed until after the break, when the Lions equalised through a penalty scored by Sam Jones.

What proved to be the winning goal on the night came from a corner taken by full back Chris Shaw and was credited as a Robert Hawkes own goal.
Next up for the Lions is an eagerly-awaited local derby in the FA Cup when Long Eaton United are the visitors to the Town Ground on Friday night.
The game gets under way at 7.45pm.
After that, there is a break of eight days before the next game, a trip to Garforth Town in the league on Saturday, August 23.
