  • Turner fires the Yeltz ahead after just 11 minutes.
  • Follow the action as the Yeltz welcome Belper to The Grove for their first home game in the Northern Premier League season (7.45pm kick off).


A point is a fair result after the sides cancelled each other out for large parts of the contests.

There were a few half chances for a winner but they went begging and honours ended even.


That's the end of the game. The ref chose not to add on any time.


88 - Belper's White goes in the book for bringing down Haseley on the break.


85 - Best chance of the game goes begging for Halesowen. 

Ben Haseley heads wide after a great ball into the box by Asa Chalton.

He was unmarked and should have done better.


84 - Kettle replaces Haseley as Belper look to attack again.



81 - one Belper go forward. They almost get in with a ball in the box but Asa Charlton recovers to clear the danger.

There still time for a winner here if someone can carve out an opening.


80 - Hales break well but Mackenzie's effort is high and wide.


76 - Thompson-Brown with another snap shot after the ball breaks in the box. He hit it straight at the keeper though. Better from the Yeltz.


Mackenzie on for Hales as he replaces Aaron Forde.


73 - The Yeltz bring on Tonks to replace Turner.

The home side will be looking to try and get on the ball more now to see they can find the winner.

Both sides are continuing to cancel each other out now after Belper earlier pressure has eased.


Belper continue to shuffle the pack as Cole replaces Stevenson.


Belper make the first change as Ward replaces Wells.


65 - Chance to Hales. Thompson-Brown turns well on the edge of the box and fires a powerful shot at goal which the keeper pushes away.


64 - Sargeant saves from a Edridge header.


63 - Belper are piling on the pressure now with a host of corners. The Yeltz are dropping deeper and deeper.


The visitors keep hitting testing balls into the box. Hales need to try and get some possession as the pressure starts to mount.


58 - Chance to Belper! How did that stay out? A deep corner is somehow kept from going over the line.


54 - The second half has continued the same as the first with both sides evenly matched.


49 - Turner bursts forward down the left but his ball into the box is defended.


Halesowen get the second half underway.


A disappointing end to the half for the Yeltz.

The penalty looked harsh after Bragoli was adjudged to have handled even though it was far from deliberate.

Justice was done as Sargeant saved but Hales couldn't clear the danger as Belper kept the attack alive.


That's the end of the first half action.


But Belper score soon after.

Sargeant saved from the spot but the ball is put back in the box and Marrison gets to the ball first after the ball breaks in the box after being headed back into the mix by Froggatt.




Penalty to Belper.


Halesowen will be the happier after getting their noses in front early.

Belper have maybe had a little more of the ball but real chances have been few and far between.


37 - Both sides have cancelled each other out for large parts of the contest so far.


32 - Belper have looked dangerous as they throw balls into the box with Well causing a few problems as he works hard to get to the ball first.


27 - it's a scrappy affair at present but Halesowen look dangerous when the get forward. Till and the overlapping Kristian Green are having some joy down the Hales right.


24 - Thompson-Brown works a chance for himself when he attempts a overhead kick after the ball loops into the air as the defence looks to defend a Haseley run into the box.


21 - Unlucky for Belper. Froggatt hits the post from a snap shot from the edge of the box.

That could have easily been the equaliser.


14 - Belper are now having a spell of pressure after the goal. Halesowen have had to defend a series of corners but have so far handled the threat.


Great work down the right flank from Till who crossed to the far post.

Turner met the ball with a controlled right footed finish past keeper Martin in the Belper goal.


11 - Elliot Turner fires Hales ahead!


5 - A quiet start so far at The Grove as both teams look to get a foothold in the contest.
