Hodgson Cup – Rnd 1

Calverley Utd Res v Rothwell Res
Going with a Rothwell win here. They have been flying this season and i can see them advancing to the next round. Now with added firepower of Jason Helm and Aaron Batley,

Huddersfield Amateur Res v Middleton Park
Going with a Middleton win here.

Leeds City OB III v St Bedes Res
Leeds City to advance.

Morley Amateur v Prospect

Going with a Drig bounce back here, after being knocked out of the cup to Norristhorpe.

Gildersome Spurs Res v Thornesians Res

Hodgson Cup – Rnd 1

Calverley Utd Res v Rothwell Res
Calverley 4th in Div 4 with 2 wins a draw and a loss vs 2nd in Div 5 with 4 wins out of 4. We go into this game on the back of a good run in the league but sandwiched between a couple of disappointing performances in the District and County Cup. We are awaiting a late fitness test on Jason Helm who picked up a rib injury and had to come off early doors on Saturday. We have a couple more missing but nothing that can't be managed. Whilst it's nice to see Dec predicting a win for us this will be far from easy but a game that we are looking forward to immensely. A good run in the Hodgson Cup last season where we just couldn't get by Morley in the Semi's and I would like to follow that up with something similar this season. This will give us a good pointer on where we are this season when facing a good Division 4 team. No prediction but expect this to be tight and could well go beyond 90 minutes.

I'll pick up the remainder of the cup fixtures that Dec has left me.

Tyersal Res v Dewsbury Rangers Res
Has the Tyersal bubble burst after successive defeats to Norristhorpe and then Cents at the weekend ? Norristhorpe one of the better sides in Div 5 and Cents always have a performance in them at home as well so no massive surprise. Dewsbury struggling this season in Div 4 and a 4-1 loss to Shire 3rds at the weekend puts them bottom of the league on goal difference but with 0 points. Home advantage for me here is key but again this will be tight between the Div 5 vs Div 4 game. I'll go for a 2-2 draw with Tyersal progressing either in extra time or penalties.

West End Park v Old Batelians
The West End Park bandwagon rolled into Batley at the weekend and took the 3 points easily enough with a comprehensive 7-2 win. Would expect something similar this week really with West End continuing their good performances and back at home. I expect West End could go on a similar cup run to last season where they lost to the eventual winners Norristhorpe in the semi finals. 5-1.

Division 5

Norristhorpe Res v Thornesians III
Had to look twice at the results again at the weekend, Thornes on the up with 2 wins in a row (can't remember that last time anyone said that in our Division) and only tainted by the 3 point deduction for failing to play the game against Bedes due to not having the correct boots ! Norristhorpe have put their week 1 failing behind them and put 2nd place in Div 4 Drig in their place in the cup at the weekend. Thornes are on the up but no offence intended here but Leeds City and Leeds Mods aren't in the same quality as Norristhorpe and they will be back to earth this weekend. 5-2.

Old Centralians v North Leeds Res
Cents with a good win at the weekend but also a good showing from North Leeds with a 2-2 draw against 3rd place St Bedes shows they are more than capable still and put their defeat to us the previous week firmly behind them. Tough one to call but I see two big evenly matched sides here so have to go for a draw 2-2.

Shire Acad IV v City OB IV
Shire picked up their first point of the season at home to Huddersfield on Saturday, Leeds City yet to pick up their first points although I'm sure they will get awarded the points for the postponement vs Huddersfield at the beginning of the season. Again another tight game here between two evenly matched sides and another draw on the cards 2-2.

Terry Marflitt Trophy – Rd 1

Thornesians v Rothwell
Our YAML 1st team played Thornes in pre-season although I expect the team that Thornes fielded on that day will be a lot different to whats available this weekend. A 3-2 win at Leeds Indy this weekend will lift Thornes spirits but they still sit bottom of the Championship. Our team are playing well and a much improved showing in Div 1 in comparison to last season and they should go into this game full of confidence. It will be a close one but go on, I'll go for us to sneak through 2-3.

Supreme coverage of Divs 4 and 5. Expert coverage on all aspects of the fixture list to com.

Well done last wekend and congratulations to Chirs Gibson on his 100% correct forecast of the super Hancock matches.

We have had a fantastic start this week with Declan having the mastery of Division 5 and an analysts share of the Hodgson Cup with the same comments appplicable to WildCar with his insight into Division 5 and his in depth knowledge of the Hodgson Cup Competition. All games so far as per printed programme on Full Time.

Want to try and improve the opening cup week on our site. We have had a bright start for this week and looking for a way to look at the 14 Marflitt Trphy games. If I can ask Calverley Utd to look at the six Marflitt games starting with Mount St Mary's v Leeds Medics then we have a member who has considerable knowledge of most ot the teams involved. Preecy too has an in depth knowledge of many of the teams in the Championship and Division one and is it possible Preecy to look at the matches starting with Dewsbury Ranges and finishing with and including Leeds Medics & Dentists Res v Indy. (again). I will then take the first three games in th Marflitt and the three games in the Hancock. Can Pickles please have a blast at Div 1 and Shire take a look at Div 3. That leave four games in Div 2 to examine. Let me know if you wish to write up your views on this one.

Taking up the ideas from Grez Brez is it possible for a member to present a video review of some of our matches??

Division 3

Ealandians III v Morley Town III
Ealandians sit 3rd right now with 12/18points the only thing that may concern Ealandians is their GD they perhaps need to look at stopping conceding as many as they score as right now they have just a +1GD. Morley sitting 6th having only managed 1 win from their first 5 games really need to start turning the draws into wins I really cant see this happening today though but can see them climbing the table in the coming weeks HOME WIN 4-1

Leeds Medics IV v Leeds City OB Res

Medics sit rock bottom and Leeds city are not faring much better however they are undefeated in 3 games! Perhaps today is the day Leeds city get a win!! AWAY WIN 1-2

Shire Academics Res v Norristhorpe
Both teams go into this game undefeated however Shire have better record having won all 4 of their games. Norristhorpe are on the back of a cup exit and shire are on the back of a cup victory!! Have to go with HOME WIN

Tingley Athletic v Colton Ath Res

Colton really need to turn things around only 1 win from 6 games however not a bad performance last week only losing 2-1 to current league leaders Horsforth so there must be some positives to take from that? Tingley have made a really solid start with 10 points from their opening 5 games and also on the back of a decent 2-0 win over Modernians! HOME WIN 3-1

Terry Marflitt Trophy – Rd 1

Mount St Mary’s v Leeds Medics & Dentists III
Mary's beat us on Saturday but we weren't at out best and second half we were disappointing. Mary's are a strong team with a striker who has an eye for goal. Medics have struggled for points and this may be a welcome break from the league. I can't see them winning but a goof performance is what they will be after. 4-1

St Bedes v Collingham Jun OB
Bedes early season form has deserted them recently whereas Collingham had a good win last week following a slow start. Should be a decent game but will Bedes home advantage tip the balance. 3-2

St Nicholas v Gildersome Spurs OB
Gildersome are scoring a few but also tend to concede, however have made a good start to life in the Championship. St Nicks have just played the two league games but have lost them both albeit against strong opposition. Interesting game. 2-3

Stanley Utd v Calverley Utd
A tough trip to Rothwell for us this weekend, we have started well but didn't perform for the whole game last week and with some key players missing was difficult to freshen things up off the bench. In contrast Stanley had a great win in the cup last week and will be looking to keep their momentum going. ?-?

Stanningley OB v Leeds Medics & Dentists
The home team are a difficult side to beat and on their day especially at Hough Side have the team work to challenge most teams in the league. Medics so far have conceded one goal in four league games so will be a tough ask for Stanningley. 1-3

Thornesians v Rothwell
A good win for Thorns last week and they definitely needed that. Rothwell are performing well and will potentially consider themselves favourites given both teams recent form. Could see extra time. AET 3-2

Dewsbury Rangers v Shire Academics

Dewsbury mid table at moment and shire are going well so will go for an away win 1-3.

Ealandians Res v Drighlington

Ealandians always a decent Team but drig  are in blistering form. I will go away win 1-5.

Farsley Celtic Jnrs v Ealandians

Both teams excellent on there day and only a point separates them in the league. 3-2.

Leeds City OB v Old Batelians

Could be a cracker this both teams evenly matched. Think leeds at home will pinch it. 2-1.

Leeds Medics & Dentists Res v Leeds Independent

Predicting this is hard as we have won 1 and lost 1 against medics already. Not having a full team isnt helping us too. Wont predict a score but should be cracking to watch

Hancock Cup Rd 1

Last week saw the start of the race to this season’s final for the Hancock Cup. This season there are teams from Divisions two and three battling for honours and again the competition will be fierce. There were four games last weekend with teams in Division 2 in the ascendancy. Woodkirk Valley were convincing whilst beating Medics IV 5-1 but a much tighter all Div 2 affair at Huddersfield Amateur went the way of Morley Town Res to enhance their promising start to the campaign. Div 2 Tyersal are beginning to find their way and managed to overcome Div 3 Leeds City OB Res and thanks are due in no small way to the superlative young goalkeeper Dylan Silson as Tyersal’s man of the match. Finally we had a stirring contest between Div 2 and unbeaten Garforth Crusaders and Div 3 Norristhorpe with the latter winning 2-1 at one point and 4-2 with 20 minutes to go. Then Crusaders showed why they are rated so highly with an inspired spell that took them to their 5-4 success. Incidentally not one player netted twice yet nine goals were scored. An even more unusual occurrence and that is that Norristhorpe penetrated the iron curtain Crusaders rearguard on four occasions.

Leeds Modernians v Horsforth SM Res

Modernians occupy the middle ground In Division 3, but last weekend was a little different as they failed to score for once whilst losing at emerging Tingley Ath 2-0. Leaders Horsforth did what they needed to do on a day of numerous players throughout the YAL caught up in RL fever, and that was take three points at Colton Ath Res with a triple for Jake Williams the crucial factor in the victory. Last season Mods were ousted by a flamboyant Sandal Wdrs 8-0 (4-0ht). Horsforth SM (then Div 4) crashed out at Fairbank United 5-3. I would not be surprised at a Hugo Sachs double for Mods but not enough to stop Horsforth succeeding 5-3, with the Horsforth team averaging four goals per game.

Lepton Highlanders v Trinity OB

Neither side is making any of us sit up and take notice with Lepton 11th in Div 3 and Trinity OB 8th in Div 2. On the other hand never a cross word about either team. Lepton are scoring goals with Max Mallinson one of four players in Div 3 on five goals, but Lepton are giving them away at a slightly higher rate. However they will have been encouraged with their 2-2 draw last week at Morley III. Trinity drew their first four games but collapsed against Div 2 leaders East Ardsley 7-1 last Saturday although the Trinity line-up contained familiar names with Stevie Travers scoring their consolation goal. Last season Lepton lost in Rd 3 to Colton’s first team 4-3 after defeating Colton Ath Res 5-3 in Rd 2. Trinity played in the Marflitt prior to the joining of the first and second teams. Unsure about the outcome of this one but both Lepton and Trinity can raise their game for a one-off fixture. Penalty shoot out for two tired teams?

North Leeds v Farnley Sports

Farnley Sports won the Marflitt Trophy last season and the team then split up going in many different directions. Thanks to the work of Darren Hullah and others behind the scenes Farnley has been able to survive that blow, with their Reserve team promoted from Div 3 last season with many from that team still on board. The now first team did well last season in the Hancock and beat Beeston Juniors Res 3-2, Thornesians Res 7-4 before losing to Sandal Wdrs 6-4. North Leeds had a tough draw against losing finalists Ealandians res 2-0. North Leeds moved up to div 3 at the end f last season and are tenth, but have managed a mere two points this season from five games. Farnley are making useful progress in div 2 and have four points from four games played. Plenty of goals scored and conceded. Should be a ding-dong tussle on Saturday and with little between the teams can see Farnley clinching the tie after extra time.

Marflitt - rmatches each with a different story to tell

Postby neville » Thu Oct 12, 2017 1:30 pm

Terry Marflitt Trophy – Rd 1

Alwoodley Res v Morley Town AFC

Trying to do an audit trail for last season on this first game is difficult as Alwoodley Res beat Wortley and then both team disappeared from Full-Time altogether. Presumably Alwoodley and Wortley were two of a number of teams failing to meet the registration requirements. Morley progressed by default against Grangefield Res who could not raise a team but then Morley were humiliated 6-1 b St Nicholas. This season is not the best for either of Saturdays’ protagonists. Morley are ninth in their first season in the top flight with two points out of fifteen. Alwoodley Res are also struggling and have no points from five games in Division 1. Morley lost 5-0 at home to Ealandians last week but Alwoodley Res made a better fist when losing at Batelians 4-3 with Alwoodley Res needing to tighten up at the back ASAP. A day for both teams to show us what they can do but with Morley not functioning well in front of goal, and Alwoodley failing to stop any of their opponents from scoring, will go for a 3-3 draw and Morley win in extra time.

Beeston Juniors v Alwoodley


Alwoodley has a good record in the Marflitt and won it in 10/11; the year after succeeding in the Senior A title race. Beeston has yet to win one of the Senior Cups but has fought consistently well over the years reaching the semi-final of the Shield and last season reached the quarter final of this competition defeating Old Batelians (6-0), Thornesians (2-1), Horsforth St Margaret’s (4-3) before eventual winners Farnley Sports defeated Juniors after extra time 5-4. The ingredients are there for a top class opening round tie with Alwoodley hoping to go better than lose in the second round as they did last season for Farnley Sports 7-3. Beeston have not been in the best of form in the League and has yet to secure a point but last week, in the Leeds Senior Cup, defeated Farnley Sports 4-1. Beeston will battle away and Alwoodley, third in the Premier Division, should win this one with their powerful attack making the difference.

Collegians v Grangefield OB

Div 1 Collegians welcome mid-table Grangefield OB from the Premiership with Grangefield in seventh slot with five points from four matches. Collegians are top of division 1 and have the excellent record of four wins from five games. The weather forecast promises a warm afternoon at College and there will be a slight breeze and a rain free encounter. Both teams have had success in this competition with Grangefield’s success much more recent with competition victories in 2013/14 and 2014/15. Victories in Senr A in 88/89, a Shield victory in that same 88/89 season were all events that took place long after Collegians won the Old Boys Cup for the fourth time of four in 56/57. Last season Grangefield lost in the quarter final to Medics 4-2 whilst the year before they lost their way against Amaranth 4-3 in the opening round. Collegians lost to Wheelwright OB 4-2 last season in the Hancock Cup but the season before entered the all first team Marflitt tournament and gave Shire a nervy Saturday afternoon before Collegians lost 5-4. The right ingredients for football as I say. A team playing well, with some excellent players and a superb team spirit playing a team that knows it should realise it advantage of two divisions between the sides. Never easy on the tight pitches at the Pennine foothills and the tension mounts as the slope makes playing downhill so difficult. Hope it’s a great afternoon for both parties and a superb after match social event. Grangefield should make the second round 4-2.

Divisin 2 and four superb contests to look at

Postby neville » Fri Oct 13, 2017 9:01 am

:arrow: Division 2

We say every year that Division 2 will be a close run thing and the portents are good for 17/18. There is no club in the Division other than Trinity that has failed to win a match with Trinity having drawn four out of five of theirs. Only one club has a 100% record and that is Garforth Crusaders.

LWDWL Colton Athletic v Garforth Crusaders WW

Garforth have a trip down the hill this week to Colton Ath, and, as far as it is possible, we can guarantee a game of quality football. Colton are fourth after losing to old rivals Fairbank Utd last week 3-1. They have played two home games and won one and drawn one. The second highest scorer in the Division is Chris Hick who has been missing the past three matches. Garforth have won both their games, one at home and one away, and have yet to concede a league goal. It says much about Crusaders when we were shocked to see they conceded four against Norristhorpe last weekend during the Hancock Cup Tie they finally won 5-4. The intention of both teams is to climb even higher in the YAL with Colton already having had a taste of Division one. Crusaders will have to work hard for the points that I think will go their way with the Colton attack taking some handling but, on a similar basis, Colton’s defence is a little too generous at times. Colton 2 Crusaders 4

DWW Fairbank Utd v Huddersfield Amateur LDLWW

Fairbank have yet to play away from home but have taken seven points out of nine at the Academy and, as ever, Fairbank are pushing for a place in Division 1. They greet Huddersfield Amateur who are delighted with their sixth place in Div 2 after their rapid rise through the Divisions with their most pleasing result to date the 3-2 home victory over leaders East Ardsley. Think this will be an outstanding game with two sides that do not know the meaning of the word “defeat”. Fairbank is second to Crusaders defensively therefore is the Amateur attack strong enough to penetrate the Fairbank defence? Can Amateur keep the Fairbank attack at bay? Not sure about that and will look for Fairbank Utd 3 Huddersfield Amateur 1. Last season Fairbank drew at home 2-2 when the teams me in Div 3 but United won at Amateur 4-3 and that indicates that this will be another close battle.

WWDL Morley Town AFC Res v Tyersal LLWL

Morley Res AFC are fifth with a more than useful seven points out of twelve. Tyersal has won one league match out of four and is next to bottom but is steadily improving. Both teams on Hancock cup duty last week and Tyersal overcame Leeds City OB Res 3-1 with Morley having a gratifying win at Huddersfield Amateur 1-2. Noted that in the cup and league scoring chart Ben Howarth and Ryan Wilks, both of Morley, have 6 and 4 goals respectively. This game will be a guide as to future progress, If Morley are to make an intense challenge they must win this game. For Tyersal another slight improvement will be welcome but to take three points will be a job very well done. Fancy a 2-2 draw.


LLWLL Sandal Wdrs v East Ardsley Wdrs WWDLLW


On form so far there is no arguing that East Ardsley should win this contest even allowing for the fact Ardsley has only taken one point away from home. They do head the league but a number of clubs could overtake Ardsley if these clubs won their games in hand. Not doubt about Wanderers at home with 17 goals snaffled in 3 games with Rob Vickers, Connor Collinson and Jack Sherwin all in the top 15 scoring chart. Sandal has not had a great season with just over a goal per game not the ideal at this level. Defensively they are a little fragile as well. East Ardsley should win this one but are they getting a “can’t win away” complex? Probably not as the points dropped were against good teams to underline the exciting battle ahead for promotion to Division

Division 1

Garforth Rangers v Farsley Celtic Juniors Res
Home side will take some beating this season, very spirited and aggressive (in the right way) against us last week. Farsley a slow start to the season. Expecting a close game, but think Garforth will come out on top, even though they look to strugle for goals.2-1

Sky Blue v Idle
Indifferent start for the new boys, Sky Blue, the pitch is a bit of an issue judging by a few reports (ours included). Idle runaway winners of Div.2 last season, a couple of games behind here but I expect them to win this one and climb the table. 1-4
