Re: Yorkshire Amateur League Fixtures for 7th October 2017

Postby neville » Fri Oct 06, 2017 11:56 am

A huge fixture list this week and I think every game has been reviewed.

All the kicks off are at 1400 hrs thus there will be a glut of results. I refer to the comments of Grez Brez regarding the number of members of our website and we would like more members to deal with the reporting of their matches and we welcome new voices on the site telling us about their game. At the same time, as members, they have the option of using any other thread and in particualr reviewing the fixtures in their own division. We do have "members" who send us their reports each week via email, and that is terrific, and if you prefer to do that then that is simple enough. Just send to buttdsl@nevbutt.demon ,co.uk

As far as the County Cup and Trophy resutls are concerned please add them to the site or at least leave your phone open so I can note the details of your County Cup orTrophy match.

Should be a superb Saturday.

Re: Yorkshire Amateur League extol virtues of Non-League day

Postby neville » Sat Oct 07, 2017 11:05 am

Non League Day was set up by James Doe in 2010 following a preseason visit to Tavistock when they played. Set up as a social media experiment to promote non league football, the idea has grown into an annual event. Leagues, clubs and supporters of all levels of football are encouraged to promote and celebrate the game in whatever way is appropriate.

Here at the Yorkshire Amateur League we would like to celebrate Non League Day by encouraging all Clubs and Referees to conduct the FA Respect handshake before all fixtures on Saturday 7th October.

We would also like to hear of any initiatives you are introducing so we can share across our social media channels. You can share your news via yalmediaofficer@gmail.com.

Leeds independent 2 v 3 thornesians

For once we have some subs, although we are still missing a few lads. We start ok trying to keep the ball but thorns closing down quickly. Again we're giving them far too much time on the ball and we're second in the challenge. Thorns are on top at the moment and a soft shot at trigger takes a bobble through his legs and arms. 0-1. We pick it up a little but arent finishing chances after great crosses from marlon. Ht. 0-1. We start a bit quicker and keep the ball better but not really creating. Marlon pinches the ball off there defender and crosses for azi to slot in. 1-1. We switch off instantly and they go upfield and score. 1-2. Another punt upfield and a poor clearance from us results in a good volley in the bottom corner. 1-3. Work rate is key in a game like this and at the moment we dont have any and thorns do. Our normal good passing game is non existant. A long ball forward and jermaine richards gets in behind to slot home. 2-3. Ft.

Stanley 4-1 Littletown

We love being an underdog and they turned up before us and set up like Man Utd.
Talk from management before game was all about who was in the next round....Swillington apparently and they "didn't know where it was"

Well now you don't need to....thanks.

Hat trick from Josh Whiteley and one from Joe Childs.

Hats off to them for staying for a drink and to be fed....good stuff!

St Bedes 2 - 8 Thorne Colliery

I knew early in the week I'd be missing a few players, then in the morning of the game a further 4 dropped out. The better team won but the scoreline and result would have been different had we everyone available but I imagine all amateur teams have the same problem.

We started off pretty well and took the lead when Tawheed Ahmed showed great feet and struck a brilliant left footed finish into the opposite corner. We could have gone 2 up had Tawheed shown more conviction when the ball was cut back 12 yards out. We then had a horrific 10 minutes where we conceded 4 goals down to basic defensive/goalkeeping errors. We pulled a goal back when Gareth Gilmartin managed to find the back of the net with a smart finish in the box. The last ten minutes of the half belonged to us as we started finding same coloured shirts and we had chances to reduce the deficit further. The half time came at the right time for the away team.

The lads were told the game was there for the taking.

We started well again and could have scored but for some erratic shooting and decision making. Thorne scored the fifth goal when an excellent tackle fell to their striker who did the rest. That ended the game as a contest. Goals 6,7,8 gave the scoreline a flattering look but no one can doubt the better team won.

We wish Thorne Colliery all the best for the season.

MOM Sam Marshall he was skipper today with so many away and he led by example always wanting the ball and not shirking any tackles.

Div 4

Thornesians Res 1 v 2 Middleton Park

We were shocking today, was embarrased to take the points as Thornesians were the better team on the day, really felt for them.

0-0 at half time despite Thornesians camped in our half most of it. Thornesians keeper pulled of some good saves too.

Went 2-0 up in 2nd half after Jayden Harding ran throught he defence to slot home in bottom right hand corner. Our second goals cane through Leon Kent who’s shot was saved initially, but deflected off the keeper into the goals, really upset for the keeper who had a good game.

Thornesians didn’t give up and scored from a corner when we failed yet again to mark players properly!

We were so poor today, we really need to wake up and smell the coffee if we want to progress through the league structure.

MOM was Jamie Kenny whi battled well and distributed the ball excellently from Midfield.

Medics make use of one of few scoring chances against Northowram inst

Postby neville » Sat Oct 07, 2017 6:46 pm

WRCFA Challenge Cup

Round 1

Leeds Medics & Dentists FC 1 v 0 Northowram.

Our first foray into this prestigious competition ended in a tight victory, with scoring chances limited by hard working and organised opposition from The Halifax League.

Although we enjoyed the majority of possession, this was not translated into the number of clear cut opportunities we might have envisaged.
Credit to Northowram, who dropped deep in numbers and fought for every ball once we crossed the half way line.

They relied on the counterattack, which generally was well contained by the Medics back four, protected by our industrious central midfielders and forwards when needed.

The crucial goal came 10 minutes before the interval, when the ball was not cleared from the Northowram box and Dave Emms finished calmly.

HT 1-0.

The high tempo continued throughout the second half, with the home side again dominating possession, with some half chances made but good keeping/last ditch defending preventing further scoring.

Northowram pushed for a late equaliser, committing more players forward, but were met with resolute LMDAFC defending, ensuring another clean sheet was achieved, along with victory.

This was a game played in the right spirit with no quarter given: a proper cup tie.

The referee kept excellent control and was right up with play. The several bookings apparently for dissent were,I felt, misleading in terms of the general excellent approach of all the players.

Our opposition should be greatly encouraged by their intensity and industry and neat passages of football: we wish them well in their season from here on.

Another Cup game next week in the Marflitt Trophy, away at Stanningley - which will provide a further stern challenge.

Drighlington go top of the class

Postby neville » Sat Oct 07, 2017 7:56 pm

Prem Div

Alwoodley 2 Farsley Celtic Jnrs 3

Alwoodley remain third with Drighlington taking over at the top of the Premier Division with a three point lead over Medics who were in business elsewhere today. Alwoodley led 2-0 at the break. The first goal came when the Farsley keeper Jordan Wright threw the ball carelessly to Graham Shaw some 25 yards out. No second invitation and Alwoodley were a goal up. A second goal after 40 minutes from Callum Armstrong put Alwoodley 2-0 ahead only for Tom McKenna to run and lunge at Louis Surtees. Cast iron penalty and Louis got up and took it himslef to reduce the arrears to one goal. More action in the secnd half and after 60 minutes a curling free kick from Joe Firth was probably going in but an Alwoodley defender tried to head the ball away but only succeeded in beating his own keeper to make it 2-2. 80th minute and Farsley go ahead 3-2. A shot from Danny Lyons was goal bound but was cleared off the line. The big question was whether it did cross the line but the goal was given. The referee was looking on at the goal from a diagonal spot level with the penalty area. It is uncertin how he could hve seen the ball cross the line, but he was confident he was correct and the goal stood. 2-3. Farsley had the ball in the net but offside already given and finally another definite penalty but the left footed penalty from Callum Armstrong was hit well but Jordan Wright made up for his earlier blemish and diving to his right saved the ball with his right hand outstretched. 2-3 and the final whistle went with a much improved display from Farsley this week and deserving ther rub of the green but both teams did agree Alwoodley deserved something from the game.

A most enjoyable game played in the right spirit between two excellent teqms

Prospect and Morley Amateur share 10 goals

Postby neville » Sat Oct 07, 2017 8:15 pm

Din 4

Prospect 5 Morley Amateur 5

ATCH REPORT: Prospect AFC vs Morley Amateur

Both sides met with unbeaten records this afternoon at Woodhall on a wet and windy day in this Yorkshire Amateur League Division 4 clash. Morley had been in great early season form, winning all four of their opening league games and sitting top of the table on 12 points.

The game started with a quick tempo and Prospect started flat as the ball seemed to move back and forth between both sides in what was a scrappy start to this affair.

It was Morley who struck first, a ball from around the halfway line was played between the Prospect left back and centre back to their right winger. The winger showed composure to use a body feint before hitting a low shot which found its way between the legs of the Prospect keeper to open the scoring in the game, 1-0 Morley.

It wasn't long before Morley were able to double their advantage - A corner was played in and was met by the head of one of their players, the header was into the ground and bounced up and over the keeper making it 2-0.

Prospect were far from dead and buried and looked most likely to cause damage through the play of their right winger, L. Musgrove, who was causing all sorts of problems for the Morley left back with his speed, dribbling and intelligent runs.

Prospect were able to create half chances, with J. Farrell and K. Rowe-Depass able to get shots off, but unable to convert. The introduction of N. Bailey provided Prospect with another outlet, and instantly his pace and directness gave Prospect another dimension.

K. Rowe-Depass came closest to opening the scoring for Prospect. A corner that was half cleared by Morley broke to Prospect's left wing and the ball was delivered back into the box, with his back to goal, Rowe-Depass was able to bring the ball down before turning and striking on the half volley, his effort hitting the top of the bar and unfortunately going over.

Prospect were able to finish the half the more dominant team after a slow start, but unable to find the net, the half was brought to a close by the ref with the visitors 2-0 up.

The second half was to be a different tale, with Prospect taking the momentum from the first half and starting brightly. Prospect found their opening goal of the afternoon from the foot of J. Farrell - N. Bailey was able to work some room for himself and took a strike in an attacking phase, with the Morley keeper equal to his effort. The ball was able to make its way to J. Farrell positioned on the edge of the area who struck the ball on the half volley and found the back of the net via a deflection from a Morley defender, 2-1.

Despite being the team on top, Prospect conceded another goal to find themselves 3-1 down. However, the lads on the pitch showed great character and determination to battle their way back into the game and were able to reduce the deficit shortly.

C. Bottomley was able to pick the ball up in the attacking third on the right side of the pitch, he cut back inside onto his left foot and played a masterful lofted ball toward the back post which found A. Shefta unmarked. Shefta was able to connect well with the ball and headed back across goal powerfully as the ball found the right side of the net, 3-2.

Inspired by the thought of a comeback, Prospect kept pressuring and working hard and eventually were rewarded with the equaliser. N. Bailey received the ball on the left flank and was able to cut across the edge of the area before firing a low, powerful shot back across goal with his right foot which beat the keeper and found the bottom left corner, 3-3.

The momentum had well and truly turned and Prospect were able to take the lead for the first time in the game. R. Cook was able to get hold of a wayward ball from a Morley player in the midfield and played the ball into the feet of N. Bailey who was on the right wing. Bailey was able to walk past his marker, cutting inside on his left foot and advancing before firing another low shot which beat the keeper at his near post to find the bottom right corner, 4-3 Prospect.

Things were to get even better for Prospect as they continued to create chances and probe away at Morley. After an attacking phase, Prospect were awarded a corner which was delivered by N. Bailey from the right side of the pitch. The ball was delivered perfectly to find A. Zenkovic situated toward the back post and his header was a powerful downward one which found the bottom corner, 5-3 Prospect.

With Prospect having fought their way to a two goal lead, and after some changes of personnel, things changed from being good to chaos. Prospect broke forward but the ball was lost and Morley were given the chance to counter, the ball was played down their left channel and their striker was able to get the ball out of his feet and speed away from the Prospect centre half before showing great composure to finish, 5-4.

It was minutes later that a goal kick from Morley was met by the head of the Prospect centre half, which landed straight back in Morley possession. The ball was instantly returned over the top to their striker who again was able to use his pace and produced a calm passed finish past the Prospect keeper to level the game at 5-5. A 10 minute implosion costing Prospect a two goal lead set up what would be a tense final 5 minutes.

Prospect were nearly able to steal a winner as they kept applying pressure to Morley, with K. Rowe-Depass playing a ball over the top of the Morley defence which found the run of L. Musgrove, unfortunately, Musgrove's strike found its way just over the bar.

All in all an entertaining game for the neutrals as the game provided 10 goals, ultimately, the game was brought to a close at 5-5 and the points were split at one a piece.

FT: Prospect AFC 5 - 5 Morley Amateur

MoM: N. Bailey - Two goals and an assist from the forward in a great display.

"I hit him hard"

Postby Pickles » Sat Oct 07, 2017 8:23 pm

Division 1

Ealandians Res 5 - 0 Garforth Rangers


OG
Rob
Boonie
Marshy
Ross (yes, really)


Few hard words from gaffer before the game, wasn't happy with what he'd seen so far this season - wanted a lot more unity, ruthlessness and a lot more grit. The warm up felt good and we kicked off in a positive mood - cheered on by HX5's finest and Ash in his Hull sleeping bag. The away side had the slope and the wind in their favour first half and we managed to deal with any attempts they had in our half, luckily for us though, the majority of Garforth's passes seemed well over hit and we were able to cope with relative ease. Squandered a few half chances (myself the main culprit) - until the 40th minute when Boonie hit a good free kick (that he'd won himself) over the wall, the keeper parried back to the wall, fortunately for us, one of their lads decided to hoof it into the back of the net. No complaints from us, but the conditions against us and late in the half, it was needed. On half time, Rob G picked up the ball outside the box, shifted away from his man and fired into the bottom corner, thanks to a slight parry from the keeper. HT 2-0.

Gaffer and Tyrion (assistant/bit part player/top boozer/great lad/Piggy) told us we needed the next goal, no two ways about it... The next 20 minutes was all us, numerous chances, the keeper making some excellent saves (Garforth's man of the match, comfortably, he didn't deserve to lose today), we eventually got the game ending third when Boonie was put through, the keeper parrying his first effort, for him to tuck in the rebound from near the byline, a great finish. Marshy added a fourth in the 75th when he headed in from close range after a quite ridiculous rabona cross from Ory. Absolute elation from the lads for the assist by Ory and rightly so. Stupid. It's with huge regret I inform you that Ross finished the game with a goal from 2 inches out, as he controlled a corner on the line and fired home. You don't save those...

Lee in the home goal didn't really have a save to make all game, but the game was closer than that makes it sound - Garforth never gave up and really fought hard for every single ball, nobody will have an easy game against them this season with that bite and spirit they showed today. A deserved win for us none the less we felt, good value for it. Jordan in CM picking up MOM, had an excellent game, he was everywhere, stopping all their attacks and starting all of ours. Must've tackled all their outfield ten, three times over. 17 year old Liam at the back, playing his first game of the season was also superb.

Thanks to the ref who had a good game, apart from making a beeline for me at the whistle to tell me he was wrong and should've given me a blatant pen at 0-0 after half an hour ;)

Cup next week against top of the prem. Nothing to lose - let's see what happens..

3 wins for the club today - UTE.

Fairbank 3 Colton Ath 1

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_ ... 2136440970

As the wind and rain swept down from the heavens, Fairbank had to dig deep against a well drilled Colton side to claim the three points.

Despite Fairbank settling the quicker, it was an even first half, as the game ebbed and flowed. Fairbank were wasteful with their chances, and the lack of a cool head in front of goal cost them on a couple of occasions as shots were fired wide.

Colton themselves were always dangerous on the break, and enjoyed dominance for mid part of the first half. On 30 minutes Akeel Khan put a beautiful defence splitting pass to release Shoaib Hussain, who was upended in the box.

Captain Billal Saleem stepped up, but his effort sailed over the bar. Colton made Fairbank pay minutes later, with a wonderful cross from the right found Rob Ashworth leap like a Salmon and nod a wonderful header home from 12 yards out.

Fairbank had to call upon keeper Richard Marshall to keep them in the game as Colton stepped up the gas, but the score remained unchanged going into the half time.

Fairbank came out guns blazing in the second half, with a virtuoso performance from Irfan Khan in midfield at the heart of Fairbanks attacking threat.

Shoaib Hussain levelled the score early in the second half, reacting first to a spilled shot that was poked home from close range.

Colton had chances to retake the lead, and once again Fairbank had goalkeeper Marshall to thank, making two very good saves to keep the score level. With Colton threatening to dominate once more, they were hit with a sucker punch, as a quick counter attack from a Colton corner saw Shoaib Hussain carry the ball 40 yards before sending Irfan Khan through to smash home from close range.

Within ten minutes Fairbank managed to get a two goal cushion, Irfan Khan wriggling free on the left, squaring the ball across the 6 yard box for Arsalahn Ramzan to tap in from close range.

Colton's keeper pulled off some brilliant saves towards the end of the game to keep the score down as Fairbank dominated the last ten minutes and went for the jugular.

Colton tired in the second half, and that proved to be their undoing in what was for large periods a game where both teams cancelled each other out. Overall is was a game played in the right spirit by two good teams.

Final Score Fairbank 3:1 Colton

Calverley Utd Res 2 Gildersome Spurs Res 0

Few chances created with midfield the busiest area of the pitch in an indifferent contest.Calverley went ahead in the 25th minute thanks to Cavan Garside from 25 yards. However Spurs were below par and, after a useful spell early in the second half from Spurs OB, Calverley purposefully went ahead 2-0 with a brilliant goal from Danny Sooltan who beat man after man as he ran in on goal from the half way line. Danny mishit his shot at the near post but it crept home. Gildersome are eighth with six points out of a possible 15. Calverley Utd Res are fourth with seven pts from four matches.

Dewsbury Rangers FC Res 1 Shire Academicals III 4

Dewsbury Rangers Res are bottom and have yet to pick up a point from 6 games. Shire Acad, 3rd, move up to 5th with seven points out of a possible twelve. George Nicholason three goals and one from Cal Chalkley.

Prospect 5 Morley Amateur 5

Please read the report from Prospect shown above. We should have an equally compelling report from Declan. Prospect are unbeaten with five points out of nine. Morley atrtop with 13 points from five outings.

Thornesians Res 1 Middleton Park 2

Midddleton advance to second out of 12. Thornesians Res remain second to bottom but have not taken a point after five matches. Pease see the report from Middleton that makes good reading.

Division 5

Leeds Modernians Res 1 Thornesians III 2

Good, close game with Thornes III recording their second success of the season. Incorrect footwear has cost them three points. Nevertheless they are stil fourth to bottom. This game went 1-0, 1-1 ht and 1-2 with Sohail javed and Jack Ellis with the Thornes goals. Mods seventh.

Old Batelians Res 2 West End Park 7

Please read the West End report. The scoresheet does not lie. Six point gap between leaders West End and Rothwell Reserves. Jotham Barnett and Craig White for Batelians. Hooley adds two more to his goal tally.


Old Centralians 2 Tyersal Res 1

Tyersal Res are sixth with Brian Hands their man of the match. Centralians ntted a goal in each half. Strictly speaking one was an OG and the other, surprise, surprise, scored by Janghir Khan. Cents up to fifth.


Shire Academics IV 1 Huddersfield Amateur Res 1

Shire are third to bottom with Hudd Amat Res eighth. 0-0ht. Goal for Jordan Talbot for Shire IV. Need more news on this one please.Thankds Rob:

Shire Academics IV 1 Huddersfield Amateur Res 1

Shire are third to bottom with Hudd Amat Res eighth. 0-0ht. Goal for Jordan Talbot for Shire IV. Need more news on this one please.

Real end to end game this one both teams had opportunity throughout to break the deadlock but Shire finally did in the second half 47th minute however Shire then suffered an equalizer in the 48th minute! 1-1 Hancock for Shire had a golden opportunity in the 85th minute to head into an empty goal at the back post however managed to hit the underside of the bar and the ball bounced down into the grateful hands of Hudds keeper!

A draw in the end perhaps a fair result 1-1



North Leeds Res 2 St Bedes Res 2

North Leeds are 9th and Bedes are third but will think of this game as points dropped. Hope to hear from Nth Leedes Res. OG and Mick Duggan for Bedes Res

Leeds City OB Summary

First Team 3 - Leeds Medics & Dentists III 2

YAL 1

A 5th win in a row for the first team however that was overshadowed by the theft of mobile phones, wallets a set of car keys and ultimately the car from Adel.

Hopefully whoever the culprits were are found.

Goals from Ali Lewis, Scott Norton & Reuben Young.

Medics better than their league position suggests.

Tyersal 3 - Reserves 1

Hancock Cup

The Reserves still searching for that first win of the season to get them up and running. A battling display away at Tysersal with the home teams keeper getting MOTM which perhaps gives an insight into the game.

Our goal from Harry Smith.

Salts Res 11 - Fourth Team 0

The lads knew this was going to be a tough examination given the gulf in class between the two sides.

The game was ended at 11-0 despite their being time left on the watch however that was the correct decision.

The boys did not disgrace themselves and worked for each other.

Collingham Juniors OB 1 Leeds Medics Res 0

Much neeed victory for Collingham and a clean sheet as well. Hope to read their report. Collingham are now eighth with Medics Res ninth. Medics Res have scored four goals in four matches and surely a significant stat.

Leeds Independent 2 Thornesians 3

Thornesians first win of the campaign but cannot get at their details yet but need the names of their scorers. They remain bottom. Please see the Indy report above with the work rate of Indy questioned.

Mount St Mary’s 2 Calverley Utd 1

After two lacklustre performances in our last two games we had a much improved display against Calverley Utd .We went behind to a goal in first half but got a well deserved equaliser before half time from an excellent strike from 20 yards from Conor Parsons.In a hard fought second half Conor doubled his goal tally to win the game for mount st marys
St Mary's remain second. Calverley drop to third after their first defeat of the 17/18 season. 0-1 at one point with Jordan Williams fnding the back of the net for Calverley. No plan in a poor second half for Calverley.

Hodgson Cup Rnd 1 : Drighlington FC Res 2 Norristhorpe Res 4
We started well in this game dominating the early exchanges in blustery conditions on a uneven pitch, which like most council owned grounds could do with rolling.

We took an early lead as young 17 year old Charlie Wood fired home after sweetly controlling a cross from Tom Boocock with his first touch and then shooting with his second. (0-1) For some reason trying to play the ball out from the back we had a defensive aberration and we got caught with the ball and let Drighlington in to score an easy goal to make it 1-1. We continued to huff and puff after this with no end product as the home side relied on the long punt down field and young legs to chase after it. After a soft free kick on the edge of our box to Drighlington, we broke away, and Tom Boocock was scythed down in the middle of the park, no free kick given and Drighlington capitalised and pumped the ball forward with our defence at sixes and sevens, to leave our keeper no chance to give the home side really a deserved lead 2-1 HT.

We had a long chat at the break, changed formation and personnel and it paid off. We tore into Drighlington in the first 15 minutes of the second period, with Sam Reid catching catching their centre half in possession and dinking the ball past their oncoming keeper to bring us level. 2-2.
Tom Boocock again provider as we broke again down the right and his cross found Liam Ramsden to tap in from close range. 2-3. Liam then got his brace after good work in midfield from MOM Jack Holden and a good passing move that finished with Liam to fire past the despairing Drighlington keeper. 4-2.

Drighlington didn't really recover from this opening onslaught and failed really to trouble our goal in the reminder of the second half, whilst we spurned numerous chances and felt harshly done by some generous offside decisions to the home side and so it finished. 4-2 FT

Collingham save best performance for Leeds Medics Resw

Championship

Collingham Juniors 1 Leeds Medics Res 0

Great win for Collingham yesterday, by far the best performance of our season. Tight game with few chances.

Only goal was a header on 7 minutes by me from a long Adam Weatherall throw. Collingham on top in the first half and could have added to the lead with missed efforts from Steve Rake and Matt Gouland.

The second half saw medics on top without creating too many chances. They had a goal ruled out for offside and hit the post in the final minute.

Confident Shire Res dispose of Shelf Utd Res

Postby neville » Sun Oct 08, 2017 9:19 am

Had the opportunity to go an watch our reserves for the first time this season on Saturday when they played Shelf Utd Res in the WRCFA Trophy and really pleased I did!

Buoyant from their start to the season Shire started with real confidence maintaining the ball well and taking the game to the opposition it took only 5 mins to open their account Benson cross for a Jay Kirkham finish through the keepers legs. Just 3 mins later another Benson through ball this time for Dion Ellis 2-0!

The game then settled down and Shelf managed to get the ball on the floor more and passing it much better reverting away from their deep long balls which so far hadn't troubled Shire being the quicker overall of the two teams.

26th minute however again a Benson cross found Jordan Lever for a tap in at the back post 3-0!

This time Shelf found a reply and in the 34th and 39th minute managed to pull two back 4-2 this took the game through to half time.

Shire had a few stern words at half term from one another realising they had switched off and had started looking to play killer passes and steer away from the intricate passing that had helped them gain their original 4 goal lead! 2 mins into the second half promoted to the reserves Al Musgrave had a long range effort which somehow caught the Shelf keeper napping and went into the back of the net! 5-2!

Again with Shire pressing in the 75th minute Jordan Lever through on the keeper his initial shot saved managed to put away the rebounded save 6-2!

Shelf managed to counter 2mins later with a third which followed an amazing save from Shire Keeper Matt Strangwood (playing on the due date of his first Child!) however the rebound could not be kept out.

3mins from time Shire gained a penalty following a challenge on Lever, Dion Ellis stepped up to smash it down the middle and to take the game to 7-3!!!

GOALS - ELLIS X3, LEVER X2 MUSGRAVE X1 KIRKHAM X1

Division 1

Collegians 2 Sky Blue 1

In a Division where everyone appears to be taknig points off each other Collegains pleased with their 2-1 win at home to Sky Blue. This leadves Collegains at the toop of Divisin 1 with a brace from Louis Wrafter that gae Collegians a 2-0ht lead.A 58th minute goal for Sky Blue made for a tight finish but Sky Blue have lost their last three matches.

Our former Chairman watched Sky take on the Mighty (Collegians) on Sat. I see they came from Shadwell, do we have any more info? Well we do? They used to play in the Sunday League as Sky Bet.They play at Treetops- the former home of Wigton Moor decd. Both sides were fine and Sky were unlucky to get nothing from the game. They tried to play football throughout. The referee had one of those off days. Sky did present a first – I have never before seen kit numbers displayed as odds eg 7/1 but they are sponsored by Skybet. I’d an enjoyable afternoon. So did I. Made up when Stanley beat Littletown. Spent the afternoon preparing for the results rush of games played yesterday - and an eye on BBC latest score.

Ealandians Res 5 Garforth Rangers 0

Garforth are eighth after this reverse by in-form Ealandinas who had a strong team out and that ensures they remain third in Div 3. Goals for Ealandians from Mark Boon, Ross Charlesworth, Rob Gerrard, Chris Marsh and an OG.

Idle 3 Rothwell 3

More to see but Rothwell are fourth and Idle sixth, From Paul at Rothwell; Should have done better really. Two up and dragged back to two all then three two in front and gave away a soft goal.
Still it’s better than losing.


Leeds City OB 3 Leeds Medics III 2

Please see the report from Leeds City about this games with Medics,who are third to bottom, playing much beter than their League slot indicates and other teams are warned to be aware of Medics III. City OB are fifth with nine points from four games, and well placed to climb even higher. Al Lewis, Scott Norton and sub Reuben Young.

Oid Batelians 4 Alwoodley Res 3

Let the stats talk. 0-1, 1-1,2-1, 3-1ht 3-2, 4-2 and 4-3. Man of the match Scott Mallooy 2 and Andrew Peel 2 for Batelians. Dan Walker, Jon Willmoth and Marvin Sordaindo for Alwoodley. Batelians without Rob Bordman - suspended. Bateliaqns move to second - the best they have been for some time. Alwoodley are bottom havnig lost all five matches.

Division 2

East Ardsley Wdrs 7 Trinity OB 1

Worst result of the season for Trinity OB who are 8th in Div 3. East Ardsley scamper to the top of Div 3 with no side running away with the Div 3 title.

Fairbank Utd 3 Colton Ath 1

Please read the tremendous report from Asif with more on its way from Chris at Colton. Also photos of the goals. Well worth seeing. Click onto the Fairbank report please. Shoiab Hussanm Irfan Khan, Roben Ashwak and Arsalahn Ramzan for Fairbank.

Good game this one. delayed by 15 minutes as it was realised that there were 15 pairs of socks missing from the match day kit of our visitors. Not seen that one before. Early goal from distance from Danny Macmahon settled Tingley into the game and Jack Tinker scored a really well worked second 10 minutes into the second half. Patient, controlled performance from Tingley.

Prospect 5-5 Morley Amateur.

We deserved nothing from this game. We were not our usual self and that's because I think we put too much pressure on ourselves. Its not all negative thouhh as we showed tremendous character to come back from being 5-3 down to drawing level. But this game was all Prospect and they deserved the 3 points. Hopefully we put on a better showing against them next week at our home. I can mirror their views on it being a cracker for the neutrals. But my heart was always in my mouth. Such a great team and I have no doubt they'll be up in the top 4 come the end of the season.

Goals from: Tom Snowden (3), Adam Cotterhill & Nick Stubley

All players signed on if you want proof we can show you proof what a statement to put on this forum cheers mate you just made my mind up .
i agree with most though it is just unacceptable for players to disprespect the ref,no matter how bad they are .

Also to give wrong name to said official is unbelievable, Gary Neville one was bad enough but everyone had a laugh at that and player told his real name after the laughing finished .. No idea where Micky Mouse came from perhaps you started that one but ref def did not put micky mouse in his book .

Rothwell 3rds 0 vs 4 Golcar United Reserves

Back to the Rothwell 3rds logo for the cup game. The Rugby League Grand Final, an airport run, working all weekend, injuries, Oktoberfest all lead to us having a depleted team for a game that I really wanted to have a go at with our full team. Another late drop out on Friday as he had to work down south meant we fielded 13 with manager having to play and assistant manager on the bench carrying an injury as an emergency sub. When I have to play 90 minutes, you know we are in trouble!!. An early injury to Jason Helm after half an hour depleted our attacking options even more. A red card in the second half made it mission impossible. Golcar passed the ball around well and our pitch definitely suited their style of play. On reflection, they are a higher side than us and 0-4 wasn't the end of the world but just disappointing with how we have been playing and who we had available. No excuses though, they were the better side and we wish them well in the future rounds.

More cup action this week for us and another tough test vs Calverley Reserves. Hopefully a better week in the player availability department might give us a chance !!

Man of the Match - Alex Lacy who made some really good saves to keep the scoreline to just 4.

Hancock Cup
Garforth Crusaders 5 - 4 Norristhorpe
If I'd been offered this result before the game I would have taken it, but we are a little bit disappointed with it in the end.
Garforth are a good team with talented players, perhaps they thought this game would be a little easier than it was as we seemed to take them by surprise by when we came back from being 1-0 down to lead 2-1 and later on 4-2. Late onslaught from Garforth got them 3 goals and a slot in the next round. Good luck to them, if they play for 90 minutes like they did in the last 20 they could win this cup and maybe Div 2 as well.
Our scorers were Danny Mountain, Kyle O'Reilly, Jak Oldroyd and Corey Roebuck.

Well now you don't need to....thanks.

Idle and Rothwell in dramatic contest - a must read

Postby neville » Tue Oct 10, 2017 10:33 am

Yorkshire Amateur League Division 1 – Saturday 7th October 2017

Full-time: Idle FC 3 – 3 Rothwell

Goals: Irving (x2), C. Dawson

MOTM: Adam Medley

Idle were keen to get back to winning ways on Saturday, after suffering two consecutive cup defeats at the hands of Premier side Stanningley Old Boys.

Idle had won both of their opening two League fixtures comprehensively, scoring 11 and conceding only 3, against both Garforth and Alwoodley. And they were hoping to make it 3 wins from 3 when they faced in-form Rothwell.

Rothwell had also made a healthy start to their campaign, taking 9 points from a possible 12 and the game would be seen as an early test for the Blues, facing opponents who seemed to have similar promotion aspirations.

The game started brightly, with both teams attacking from midfield with pace. Idle were unlucky not to make more of their early link up play as Carl Dawson and Jack Strudwick attempted to get the ball wide to Adam Medley and Ryan Mitchell. Though Idle’s play was easily broken up in the early interludes with passes going astray, allowing Rothwell to capitalise and force pressure of their own.

Rothwell striker ‘Macca’ caused problems with his pace and managed to get behind the defence on several occasions, forcing a number of corners and throw ins as Idle frantically tried to clear their lines. As the Rothwell attack continued, Idle conceded a free kick on the edge of the area. The Rothwell centre midfielder, who had yet to make an impact on the game, stepped up confidently to curl the ball past the helpless Dickinson into the top right hand corner. 0-1.

The early goal had clearly affected Idle’s confidence as they struggled to deal with balls over the top from the Rothwell midfield and forced into playing a long ball game of their own in a helpless attempt to get the ball to sole striker Aaron Irving. The Rothwell pressure continued and they eventually doubled their advantage on 20 minutes.

A long throw into the penalty area was not dealt with by the Idle defence and in their attempts to scramble the ball to safety, the ball fell into the path of the Rothwell midfielder, who drove the ball low into Dickinson’s bottom corner from midway inside the box.

This was going to be an uphill struggle for Idle, who knew that they needed to be patient and play the ball on the floor if they were going to get anything from the game. Strudwick and Dawson continued to link up in Midfield and managed to introduce Medley into the game, whose pace down the left hand side caused the Rothwell right-back some problems.

Idle’s efforts were rewarded on 35 minutes when clever link-up play from midfield resulted in Dawson playing a timely through ball into the path of Irving, who coolly placed the ball underneath the approaching Goalkeeper. 1-2.

Idle had the bit between their teeth now and continued to mount more pressure from midfield through the trickery and skills of Mitchell down the right and Medley from the left. They managed to force an equaliser just after the half-time interval when a ball into the box was not dealt with and a pass released Dawson, who drove the ball into the bottom corner from close range, despite appearing to be yards offside. 2-2.

The offside had enraged Rothwell Town who surrounded the Referee. Rothwell also let tensions boil over-when Striker ‘Macca’ squared-up with centre back, Lee Cookson for adjudging his timely tackle as a foul. Thankfully, unlike the last two outings, the referee was able to calm any situation down and managed the game professionally and decisively throughout.

The second half continued much like the first, with both teams mounting early pressure and forcing corners and throw-ins with balls into the box from the flanks. Idle goalkeeper Josh Dickinson can be commended for the countless times he reacted to balls into the area and confidently gathering the ball to quell any Rothwell threats in front of goal.

Though Dickinson could do nothing about Rothwell’s 3rd goal, that came mid-way in the second half. A defensive header dropped 20 yards from goal at the feet of the centre midfielder, who killed the ball stone dead before driving it into the top centre of the Idle net, striking the underside of the bar on the way in. 2-3 despite Idle’s comination.

The goal sent the Rothwell players and faithful alike into jubilation and they celebrated as if they had won the game. But Idle had been behind before and knew that they could unlock the Rothwell defence again.

Idle continued to play their positive, attacking style of play and as the match went into the latter stages, Medley found himself free on the right hand side. His long driving ball across the face of goal found the oncoming Irving at the back post, who smashed home with confidence to grab his brace. 3-3.

Idle knew that they could go and take all 3 points but were also wary of the attacking threat that their opponents posed and the defence were pivotal in soaking up the Rothwell pressure and clearing any balls in that threatened the Idle goal.

Idle forged one final opportunity in the closing stages, when Mitchell’s tricky feet found him free in the area but squared the ball to Carl Dawson who couldn’t open his body up in time to force a clean strike on goal. Full-time: 3-3.

All in all, a draw seemed to be a fair result for both sides, whose positive attacking style of play should see them do well in the League this season. Idle showed a determination and desire that had gone missing in the last two weeks and to come from behind twice and battle for a point, keeps them unbeaten thus far.

Idle need to take these positives into the next game when they face Sky Blue FC next Saturday.
