The forecasts and predictions last week were wonderful but result and shocks, particularly in Div 5, were of Newport County proportions. Correct scores for Spurs OB and for Middleton Park by Preecy and Steve respectively - superb assesments.

A big domestic Cup programme. 10 contests in all. I will look at the Marflitt and Hancock Cups but they are availble for anyone who wishes to comment on some fascinating ties.

I hope Calverley are in a position to assist with the Prem Div - if not please let me know.

With regard to the Champ will Preecy please continue.

Looking for a fresh face this week for Div 1. A Division with plenty of goals and action.

Three games for Chris in Div 2. Three games for Norristhorpe in Div 3

Div 4. Is it possible for Steve to loook at Div 4 and Sgt Wilko to examine the Hodgson Cup please.

Div 5. Thanks to Ade for sorting out FullTime. Honcho and Ade to enlighten us with Div 5.

CHAMPIONSHIP

It's been a while, so thought I'd have a look this week.

Beeston St Anthony’s v Mount St Mary’s
Relegation dog fight for both here and a massive 3 points at stake, which could be very important for both teams in a bid to stay in the league. It was a stalemate 0-0 earlier on in the season with MSM probably happier with the point. Expecting a tough game. No prediction...

Leeds City FC v Leeds Medics & Dentists Res
Neither side have had a game for a few weeks, so both will be looking forward to running off their Christmas dinner! Medics have had some good results in recent fixtures including a 1-0 win over league leaders Gildy. Leeds City gave us a hiding last season in the District cup and keep the ball well. Expect a good game here and as always, it depends what players Medics have available. Will go with an away win 2-3

Shire Academics v Ealandians Res
Shire are always a strong outfit and will be tough to beat here. Ealandians plodding along nicely in there promotion season however, must be looking over their shoulder at the teams below. Can Ealandians stop a strong attacking team? Home win 4-1

St Bedes v Morley Town AFC
St Bedes are in impressive form of late, scoring 14 goals in their last 2 games. Morley always tough to beat on their day especially with a full squad of players available. I'd expect the momentum of Bede's form to carry them forward should they also have a full strength side however, I'm not going to write Morley off. I'm going for a draw 2-2

Wortley v Garforth Crusaders
Garforth sitting comfortably in mid table after 6 games in their promotion season and look a tough team to beat. Wortley however, appear to be the team to beat this season and have some very good players at their disposal. Expect nothing less than a home win. 5-2
Norristhorpe

Division 3
Ealandians III v Leeds City FC III
6th v 4th. Although these teams are close in terms of league position Leeds have played 5 games less and earned 7 more points than Ealandians. Leeds are promotion favourites along with New Middleton, and I can't see that Ealandians will be able to stop them. 0-2
Leeds Modernians v Morley Town AFC III
10th v 7th. On league position you'd have to go for Morley, but Mods last 2 games, both against North Leeds, have resulted in a win and a loss. Have they turned the corner? 1-1
North Leeds v Tingley Ath
5th v 10th. North Leeds are very useful this season and will probably have too much for Tingley. 2-0

I’ll comment on what League and Cup concerns me.

Norristhorpe Res v Gildersome Sports OB Res - we (spurs have struggled but grinded our results. Norristhorpe higher team no game but cup rules apply. We played well first half in the league but sneaked a draw. No prediction I just hope we put in a performance.

Savile Utd v Rothwell Juniors - rothwell higher league but I have not seen either team. Maybe pens?

Tyersal Res v Middleton Park - 1-3 Middleton walk-in our league. Can only see one result.



Division 4

Beeston Juniors OB Reds v North Leeds Res - 1-3 even though I have not seen north leeds.

Calverley Utd Res v St Bedes Res -2-1 home win

Colton Ath Res v Morley Amateur - Which morley Weill turn up? But I’ll say 1-2 morley.

Dewsbury Rangers Res v Thornesians Res - basement game. Fancy dewsbury with Home advantage. 3-2

Drighlington Res v Shire Academics III - we could creat a thing against shire. And I’ve said before I think drig and Middleton are the best two in the league. 4-1

Hancock Cup – Rd 3

The weather forecasters predict a fine, mild Saturday. Let’s hope the Hancock programme matches the quality of Round 2.This is the third year of having Division2 and Division three sides competing for the Hancock cup, a cup previously restricted to Reserve teams. Not one of the winners of the past four seasons is in the competition this season. Grangefield OB Res, Stanningley OB Res and East Ardsley Wdrs no longer exist and the holders Garforth Crusaders are now in the Championship and thus compete in the Marflitt Trophy. The last eight consists of five sides from Div 3 and a mere three from Division 2. The draw for the next round will be made at the League Meeting on the 26th Jan with the details of the venues also released.

Garforth Rangers v Prospect

This will be a contest that we can look at from different angles. One aspect is that Garforth Rangers are in Division 2 and Prospect are in Div 3. Garforth are second to bottom in Div 2 with Prospect eighth in Division 3. Current form shows Garforth having gleaned but one point from the last six games. Prospect were on a super run but that has all disappeared into the either with Prospect having lost their last three matches. Pick of many fascinating stories from the last round is that of the clash between Garforth Rangers and Prospect.

“Garforth Rangers had full 14 players out for the first time this season and it showed as seventh placed Rangers overwhelmed second in the division Tyersal 7-0. The scorers for Garforth Rangers were Bromley Mills 3, Liam Dent 2, Jack Wormald and Kieran Dent. “The Prospect second round adventure makes enjoyable reading (unless you are from Morley Town AFC III).This was a good game between two division three teams that battled hard. Prospect took a two goal lead and Morley Town III responded with a goal just before half time Prospect got a third shortly after the restart but Morley retaliated quickly with another well taken goal. Prospect restored their two goal lead but were pegged back again by a goal for Morley late in the contest. The scores for Prospect were Jason Hobson 3 and Jordan Farrell.

The current form of both teams, as outlined above, flatters neither team, but how will they approach the tie? Garforth, at their best, are a young. constructive, skilful side but not physically strong, and will have to cope with a Prospect team that has players who can play at a high tempo - perhaps short on goals scored - but the Prospect defensive stat of 25 conceded suggests they will be difficult to break down. Too easy to state the game will be decided on penalties. Confidence is probably low for both teams and an early goal may be the deciding factor as to how the pattern of the game emerges. Perhaps will go for a penalty shoot out after all?

WLWLWW Huddersfield Amateur v Colton Athletic WWDWWW

Think this will be a superb game with two in-form sides in opposition. In the last round Colton eased their way past Littletown 7-1 whereas Huddersfield Amateur overcame hosts Sandal Wdrs 2-6 with the 4G clearly suiting Amateur. “Colton Athletic had a satisfying 7-1 victory against Littletown leading 4-1 at the break. The Colton scorers were Jono Goodwin 2; James Green; Jordan Thackery; Josh Naylor; Danny Coates; Ben Vickers”: “Sandal Wdrs had a squad of 12. Amateur were at full strength and were brilliant winning 6-2 whereas Sandal did as best they could, but struggled. Chris Carter hit four of the goals and two of them from outside the box and one a header on a fabulous day for him. Ty Hewson and Ryan Matthews hit the other two goals for Amateur.”

Colton are having a magnificent season and will be quietly hoping to find their way to winning some silverware. Colton are a free scoring side that is not only undefeated in the League but are the leading Div 2 scorers and have the least permeable defence in Division 2. Huddersfield Amateur has settled down after relegation last season and is making a strong bid to return to Division 2. They are second in the Div 3 form chart with an eye for goal as illustrated by Chris Carter’s haul against Sandal Wdrs in the last round. Both teams enter the fray with wins last weekend. Colton 4-1 at Fairbank after withstanding considerable Fairbank second half pressure and Amateur 2-0 against Lepton in a tight match with close calls at both ends of the pitch, Colton are playing well as a unit with experience a valuable asset but their pace and skill on the ball are even more important facets of their game. If Huddersfield can play the squad originally selected then this will be a close call but after a thriller expect Colton to win 4-2. Last season in Division 2 Colton did perform the double over Amateur 3-4 and 6-2.

Lepton Highlanders v Fairbank Utd

Lepton Highlanders are second to bottom in Division three but do have occasional moments’ of satisfaction as shown in the last round when defeating Leeds City FC III who had thwarted Otley Town Res 0-3 the previous week in the County Trophy. Lepton Highlanders put on a superb display winning 3-2. City FC III were 2-0 up after 20 minutes thanks to Cyrus Azimikorf and Leighton Stanger and cruising. Cyrus had a goal disallowed and a Leeds City official added” If we score next we win by a cricket score but if we concede next it would be a tough match.” Lepton scored next and the game was back on. They equalised before half time so it was 2-2 at the break. Lepton completed a magnificent fight back and scored the winner on the break followed by uninhibited celebrations. Fairbank Utd are in midtable in Div 2 and have had a poor run that sees them with three consecutive losses and ten points is the difference between second and fifth. Fairbank cruised to round 3 with a 7-1 win over hard working Trinity & All Saints OB in a good performance at Dixon’s Academy. More relevant is the posting from visitors Colton after their win last week against Fairbank 4-1 to underline the reluctance of Fairbank to ever give up without trying. “The hosts did eventually get a foothold as the half wore on, and were rewarded with their hard work on 39 minutes when they scored from a free kick. Half time 1 – 3 to Colton. In the second half Fairbank launched a big offensive and kept Colton penned in their own half for the first fifteen minutes or so. Their long balls created a few openings; however the Colton defence, marshalled superbly by Chris Wayman and Joe Horner, stood their ground. It was backs to the wall situation for a while, as Colton were unable to keep the ball as well as they did in the first half. But they were resolute and defended with grit.” Must say I feel that Fairbank will succeed although it has already been proved that Lepton is capable of pulling off the unexpected victory.

New Middleton v Farnley Sports

New Middleton has joined us this season and has already been the football equivalent of beating the sound barrier. They have won 10 matches out of 10 in the League with F70 A 10. They play ninth placed Division 3 side Farnley that have made up for a poor start to the season and are now ninth. Last weekend New Middleton had a trial run of this Saturday’s game and won 13-2. Gulp. Lets look at a more cheerful aspect of the season, especially from the Farnley viewpoint:

” Division 3 Farnley Sports drew with Horsforth St Margaret’s Reserves Res three all before Farnley won the penalty shoot out 4-2. This was a satisfying result for Farnley Sports who were up to full strength. Sean Gill scored the first half goals for Farnley Sports with Ciaran Cowie adding the third goal in the second half. The Farnley keeper Adrian Knott played his part. No Farnley misses but Adrian saved two pens - the first and the fourth.”

“Compliments to North Leeds who gave runaway Div 3 leaders New Middleton a severe test, the first time they have had to work extremely hard this season and the reward is a ticket into the next round. North Leeds were close to winning the game, and very close to sharing the spoils after 90 minutes but it wasn't to be for, despite taking an early lead, they were 1-2 down at half time. Jamie Davies 2 and Ricky Price 2 fired the ammunition for New Middleton. North Leeds regained the lead at 3-2 but soon they gifted a goal to New Middleton and then gave away a penalty. This was a North Leeds performance of great promise with Dan Ajibona, Sam Goodall and Pete Hill with a header sharing the goals.” New Middleton are not invincible as they showed when losing to AAK 5-4 in the Shield but think they will reach the Hancock Semi-Final with goals to spare. Jamie Davies on 26 goals for New Middleton is Div 3 top scorer.

Division 2 shufty

Leeds City FC Res v Sandal Wdrs
8 points separate the teams in the division, with Sandal 6th and Leeds 8th. Leeds have 5 games in hand some how on their hosts. Expect it to be a home win, but close.

Littletown v Horsforth St Margaret’s Res
Littletown have kept going as the season has progressed and have put in some decent displays recently. Horsforth will be too strong for them though, and I expect an away win.

Morley Town AFC Res v Shire Academics Res
Morley have had a couple of great results recently and must have had an influx of new players. Shire are 3rd in the division with 21 points. This is an intriguing fixture, and I can see a draw here.

Trinity OB v Tyersal
Trinity have had a tough season so far, winning only two so far. They have played 9 games and have games in hand on those above them. Tyersal meanwhile are second and have a very strong outfit. Away win for Tyersal with room to spare.

Marflitt offers a thrilllng choice of fixture

Postby neville » Thu Jan 10, 2019 9:48 pm

Terry Marflitt Trophy – Rd 3

Gildersome OB v Alwoodley

Surprised to see Alwoodley? Let an extract from the latest MC meeting explain.

“The Secretary read correspondence from Alwoodley stating that following the postponement of the match between their reserves and 1st team, they would be withdrawing the reserve team as per Cup Rule 18.”

Two clubs steeped in the history of the Yorkshire Amateur League. Spurs won four Trophies in 2008/09. They were Senior B, the Marflitt, the Shield and the Wheatley Cup. Alwoodley became the first Yorks Old Boys tem to win in the Leeds Senior Cup and last season became the first YAL side to reach the final of the County Challenge Cup. This season Spurs lead the Championship with Morley challenging but Wortley are in a position to overtake them if they win their numerous matches in hand. Alwoodley are eight in the Premier Divison with nine points from eight matches but have dran three of their eight games with their leading attacker and goal scorer Callum Armstrong absent with a prolonged injury. This season has seen Gildersome successful in the Marflitt overcoming Golcar Utd 4-0 and Beeston St Anthony 3-0. Alwoodley thumped Calverley Utd 6-1 in a comprehensive first round success but were awarded the game with their Reserve team as shown above. Alwoodley were quarter final victims of Medics Res last season whereas Spurs succumbed to St Nicholas 2-0. ealry in the contest. Will be a close game on what shold be a good surface with both teams having basic attacking instincts. This is underlined by Spurs having five players in the Championship scoring chart first page of fifteen players with the list for the Premier Division only showing the injured Callum Armstrong on nine goals. Alwoodley has a good defensive record this season and a dominant midfield. It will be exciting to watch the midfield battle unfold and equally interesting to see how the Alwoodley defence cope with the lively Spurs attack with Matt Jackson against Tom McKenna well worth the entrance money. I think it will be so close and therefore justifiable to hide behind a 3-3 draw. If the draw is not an allowable option then will go for a narrow Spurs victory but difficult to separate the two wll liked sides.

Grangefield OB v Leeds Independent

Grangefield are third in the Premier Division and they should be able to defeat bottom of the Championship Leeds Independent but Indy are a team that will not surrender and any victory will have to be earned. Grangefield has a good record in the YAL built up over a period of some 20 years. They have twice won the Marflitt Trophy and were semi-finalists last season before surprisingly losing by the single goal of the game to Leeds Medics Res. Victories last season included Penalty shoot out success against St Nicholas, a similar penalty lottery victory against St Bedes and a 4-1 winning hand at Collegians. It seems that Indy did not enter the Marflitt last season.

This year Grangefield has knocked out Mount St Mary’s 4-1 and Premier Division colleagues Horsforth St Margaret’s 0-3. Leeds Independent won at Collegians 0-3, defeated Premiership Wibsey 2-1.Grangefield has won five games out of seven at home. Their recent form chart shows four wins from their last six games but broken down even further shows one win out of the last three game and that included the crucial 0-1 loss to Farsley Celtic Juniors last weekend. Indy lost 8-3 to Bedes sharp shooters with Andy McHugh hot property with four goals for Bedes. The leading score for Grangefield is the promising Chris Barr on eight with Danny Walker leading the race for goals at Indy with seven. Without expanding further I expect Grangefield to succeed 4-0 but the joy with Indy is that can be brilliant at time within a game. Could be fun.

Leeds Medics & Dentists v Stanley Utd

An opportunity to congratulate Stanley Utd on reaching the quarter final of the WRCFA Challenge Cup last eight after overcoming Lees City 0-1.

A chance to mention the way the Premiership ended last season with Stanley Utd second and four points behind Champions Drighlington but Stanley were seven points ahead of third positioned Medics. This season Medics are fourth with 23 points from 11 matches but still some way off the two leading sides Farsley Celtic Juniors and Drighlington. Stanley is eighth with nine points from nine fixtures. The two sides met only two weeks ago in the final game before Christmas and Leeds Medics won 3-1.

“Medics finally overcame eighth placed Stanley Utd 3-1. It was Josh Whiteley who put Stanley ahead as Medics once again conceded first but at least it was to a superbly taken goal. That was approximately 30 minutes into the half and it was goals for Brad Chambers and James Melia that gave Medics a 2-1 half time lead with the goals in the 33rd and 43 minutes. Tight game for most of the second half and it was not until the 80th minute that the free scoring Kieran Wardman added to his and the Medics tally to put them 3-1 ahead - a lead that Medics felt they deserved. After the game Dr Stephen Ledger, Medics Chair, added: "This success keeps LMDAFC in touch with the leaders going into the Christmas break. Stanley United will prove tough opponents again, when we both resume competitive action in The Marflitt Trophy Quarter Final on January 12th. “.Leeds Medics won the Marflitt 5-0 last season against the Medics Reserve team. Stanley beat Calverley Utd 6-2 but then fell at Farsley Celtic Juniors 5-2. This season Stanley Utd were the better team against Woodkirk winning 1-6 and then enjoyed a goal fest against Premier division rivals Athletico, managing to win by the odd goal in eleven. Both teams of high quality and the victory last week will have lifted the spirits of Stanley Utd even further. A cup is round the corner somewhere for Stanley as next week they take on Horsforth St Margaret’s in the Shield quarter finals. A penalty shoot out is realistic with Stanley having the advantage of missing only one weekend but Medics did win the league clash by two clear goals.

Hodgson Cup – Rd 3

Norristhorpe Res v Gildersome Sports OB Res
We got knocked out of this Cup last Season as Gildersome then a Division higher beat us 2-5. But we won't mention players from higher Division sides as even though our first team haven't a game there has been no need to inter change between the two squads so none are eligible to play as Gildersome might have forgotten from last Season. However we drew earlier in this Season against Gildersome in the league 3-3 after letting a 2 goal lead slip after a great encounter, but we have struggled over recent weeks with consistency, as injuries and work commitments have been hitting us hard. Unfortunately although I have no prediction could be a tough ask for us.
Savile Utd v Rothwell Juniors
Savile are from all accounts are a very good side in the Division below Rothwell but they also have a darker side which has lead to a number of issues in some games, but they are still looking good for promotion this Season. Rothwell also have a decent side as and when they all turn up and play, if they do I can see this being a close encounter, as we found out in our game against them. 2-2 then penalties perhaps?
Tyersal Res v Middleton Park
Having played Tyersal last Season in Div 5 they put out two decent sides out against us in our encounters so they might, just might pull off a shock here however Middleton are pounding everyone in Div 4 and I can realistically only see a convincing Middleton win 0-4

Division 1 12th Jan

WLLLLW Alwoodley Res v Whitkirk Wdrs WDLLLL NP

Whitkirk Wdrs will be pleased to be away from their home ground after three successive home losses without scoring a goal. They play a buoyant Alwoodley Res side that last week battled to earns a 4-3 success against 9th placed Farsley Celtic Res with a Graham Shaw hat trick and a goal for brother Andy Shaw making the difference. Believe a victory for 10th placed Alwoodley the likely outcome.

WWWWWW Amaranth Crossgates v Woodkirk Valley WLWWWW NP

The match of the day and should be entertaining. Both teams are fantastic in front of goal with Amaranth in a strong position before the game. Woodkirk top the Division by three points from Amaranth but Amaranth has three games in hand. Woodkirk took considerable pride in their victory over a talented Medics III last week but for Amaranth the disappointment was losing out in the County Challenge Trophy at the last minute to Halifax League Prem Div Shelf Utd. The question to be answered during the game is whether the Amaranth defence can keep Woodkirk at bay with four Woodkirk players in the top 15 scoring chart but Amaranth, they have played three fewer games, have three of their players in the same chart. Amaranth defence wil come out on top 3-2.

WLWLWW Collegians v Beeston Juniors DLWWLW NP

Collegians are third and four wins out of their last six matches with a thumping 6-1 victory against Collingham last week. Beeston are playing well and they were chuffed to have brought the five match winning sequence of Dewsbury Rangers to an end. Collegians are third with Beeston now fifth. Collegians strong at home with Beeston showing only one away victory from four games. This is a chance for Collegians to keep in touch with the leaders but Beeston are never easy to write off and would be unsurprised if they took a point.

Please note - Respect

Mr Brook reported at the MC meeting hat the Bulletin for December was ready to be sent out. The winners being Beeston Juniors, with Grangefield 2nd and Shire Academics 3rd


LLLLWL Collingham Juniors v Golcar Utd LLWDWW NP

Collingham’s threatened revival did not take pace with the 6-1 defeat at Collegians a disappointment. Golcar are one of the in form side and Golcar’s away form has been good so far with only two defeats in six away fixtures. Collingham are always an attacking threat but Golcar are a well balanced team and should be able to come out with a 3-4 victory.

WLWWLL Farsley Celtic Jnrs Res v Idle WDWWDW NP

Farsley still win friends and hope that their positive style of play influences people. They had a terrific game with Alwoodley Res last week but eventually lost 4-3 even after catching up on three occasions the single goal deficit. Idle in top form after a superb victory in the Challenge Cup against Sprnghead Reserves. Idle are fourth and are four points behind second placed Amaranth but Idle has a game in hand. A good game to watch but Idle should be victorious.

LDLLLW Thornesians v Dewsbury Rangers WWWWWL 2-0 Dewsbury Rangers

It was a brighter weekend for Thornesians as they won 2-0 at Whitkirk Wanderers to record their first three pointer for some time. On the other hand a dismal start to 2019 for Dewsbury Rangers who lost at Beeston Juniors 3-2 to surrender their five match winning sequence. Dewsbury has a strong defence and always awkward opposition and feel they may just win 2-1.

Div 5

Hoping for a better return after the shock results of last week!

Middleton Park /21 v Old Batelians

Will be a close game but think Batley will edge this.

Shire Academics IV v Morley Town AFC Dev Squad

All 4 shire teams in action so Morley should be too strong for the home team.

St Bedes Academy v Old Centralians

Will be a close game but got a feeling Bedes will go 1 step further than last week and take the points.

Thornesians III v Leeds Modernians Res

Expecting a keenly fought battle against Mods. No prediction

West End Park v Leeds City FC IV

Dont know much about Leeds City this season so far. going for a win

Good luck All!

Div 5

Middleton Park /21 v Old Batelians

Difficult to bet against an Old Batelians win here 5-3

Shire Academics IV v Morley Town AFC Dev Squad

Morley should be too strong for Shire but will be close 3-2

St Bedes Academy v Old Centralians

My second game in command as interim manager but with a few of the defence missing this week, will be a tough game against a cents team who defeated Batley last week.
Going for a narrow home win 5-4

Thornesians III v Leeds Modernians Res

Pitch looking nice in Wakefield, had photos sent all week and am tempted to plant a few spuds in there. Home win with plenty of players available for thornes 3-1

West End Park v Leeds City FC IV

Another close one to call but going for away win 4-2

Division 4

Tough games to call this week with all teams playing teams around themselves

Beeston Juniors OB Reds v North Leeds Res
Both teams struggling and looking to pull away from the relegation spots. Should be a close game. No prediction

Calverley Utd Res v St Bedes Res
Both teams looking to push into the promotion pack. Calverley quite a few games in hand on St Bedes, not played either side this season but going to call a narrow Calverley win. 3-1.

Colton Ath Res v Morley Amateur
Theme of the afternoon with just one place separating these two sides. We played Morley last week in a close game but ultimately they deserved to win in my opinion. Also had two games against Colton both goals decided by one goal as the Morley game. Don’t expect much in this at all but I think Morley will just edge it. 3-4.

Dewsbury Rangers Res v Thornesians Res
The leagues basement teams meet looking to get out of the relegation zone. Should make for another good and close game. Thornesians yet to get a win with Dewsbury just on the 1 win this season. We’re Not yet to play Dewsbury and we drew with Thorns. I’m going to sit on the fence with this one and go for a score draw. 2-2

Drighlington Res v Shire Academics III
Drig looking strong this season and looking to keep hold of top spot with a few teams closing in. Shire also looking strong this season but I think Drig will be too strong. Going to go 5-2.
