We're off and we had a 100%er last week with our man from Morley United in Div 6. Can that be repeated this week>

An important Cup week@ I intend looking at the 7 matches involved. Any help gratefully received.

Two games only in the Prem Div?

Is it possible for our man from Shire to look at the Champinship and Preecy at Div 1.

If JP can take on Div 2 that will be tremendous with Div 3 falling into my arms.

That leaves Divs four and five. Vounteers please. A good week for Div 4.

Div 6 predictions from the Morley Camp

Huddersfield Amms V Morley Utd - Played Hudds lads earlier in the season and they were much better than league position showed so expecting a severe test from them.

Leeds City V Shire - I see this one going to the wire but will side with Shire just to nick it.

Rothwell Res V Leeds Mods - 2 strong teams but Rothwell very good at home so will go with the home side to bounce back.

Thornesians V Middleton Park - Can only see an away victory here(sorry Thorns)

West End Park V Old Bats - should be a good battle but home side should just have the edge, if Bats are up for it they would give anyone a game.

cheers

Colton Ath 2 v 3 Collegians

What a game, both very strong

Ealandians Res 3 v 1 Sandal Wdrs

Ealandians rise has been impressive

Morley Town AFC Res 1 2v Woodkirk Valley

Not sure what happened to Woodkirk. Very good young team and due a win

Old Centralians 1 v 3 Idle

Cents struggling getting a steady team being a 3rd team; they need a double relegation. Idle should win comfortably

Division 1

Dewsbury Rangers v Leeds Medics & Dentists III

Think medics will have too much for Dewsbury here providing they have a full team. Away win. 1-3.

Garforth Rangers v Leeds Independent

Hopefully we will be back to winning ways this week. Not played Garforth yet and a few teams have slipped up against them but I fancy us. 1-3 away win.

Gildersome Spurs OB v Horsforth St Margaret’s 

Game of the day in division 1. Another tough one for Gildersome but having now played both teams I believe they will have enough in the tank. Home win. 4-1.

Grangefield OB Res v Huddersfield YMCA

Grangefield are struggling so can't see them causing many problems for Huddersfield. Away win. 1-3.

Old Batelians v Rothwell

Batelians pulled off a great win last week and think they will get back to back wins against a struggling rothwell. 4-1 home win.

St Bedes v Farsley Celtic Juniors Res

Will Farsley have a full team? I hope so cos it will help us out if they can pinch some points from bedes. Bedes are tough to beat at home though. Draw 2-2.

Division 2

Colton Ath v Collegians
Away side are top of the league & yet to lose a game but won't have many a tougher fixture than away to Colton. Game of the day in the division and could easily be settled by the one goal. 2-3

Ealandians Res v Sandal Wdrs
We were 3-0 up after half an hour in the reverse then a slack second half ended up costing us as we drew 3-3. We feel we've a point to prove to ourselves over that. Should be a good game of footbal on our new pitch. Will be just as close this weekend I'd imagine, Sandal were a good team. No prediction

Morley Town AFC Res v Woodkirk Valley
Strangest team in the league are Morley, capable of shock wins and shock defeats (does that mean they're shocks anymore?). Woodkirk grafted hard against us on Saturday and Morley are usually very much the same. Wil be very close this. If either team won this 3-0, I wouldn't be surprised. I'll go for a narrow home win after their impressive victory against Leeds last weekend. 3-2

Old Centralians v Idle
Didn't sound a good weekend for Cents just gone, against Colton and Idle's attack and defence is even better than Colton's. Ominous signs for the home side unfortunately.. 1-7

Hancock Cup –Rd 3

Kick Off - 1330hrs

Wheelwright OB v Leeds City OB

Bet this is a great cup game, two of the better sides in what is a strong division 2. Leeds a point behind Wheelwright with 4 games in hand, so league form should dictate a comfortable-ish away win for Leeds but I bet it's nowehere near as easy as that - Leeds won't underestimate the homeside either. I'll go for a Leeds win but a close and good game. Good luck to both teams. 1-2

Thanks for info from Farnley Sports


Hi Eugene/mark/Richard/Neville

Saturday's marflitt cup tie between Farnley sports vs beeston will now take place at beeston juniors Cardinal square

Both clubs have agreed to play the fixture at beeston as our club house is currently under a major renovation and the facilities are very uncomfortable at moment

There is a cold snap expected over the weekend so if beestons pitch is unplayable we will keep our pitch open as a back up so we have 2 options to try get the game to go ahead

We will be in all green so there will be no kit clash

Any questions don't hesitate to ask

Scott horner
(Farnley sports manager)

Division 3

LLLLLL FC Headingley v Churwell Lions WLWLLD 1-1

FC Headingley has worked tremendously hard with little tangible reward although they still feel they can salvage something from the season but need to find a second goal scorer very quickly. They have only one point on the board but that was against Churwell Lions. Can they repeat that performance this week? Churwell have had a mixed season but after their slow start have reached 9th slot but there is a chasm between them and eighth placed Leeds Modernians which was made worse by Churwell losing three points for a rule breach. In spite of their poor record in terms of points gained the Churwell attack has been as sharp as ever and they have an eye-catching goals record of F29 A22 from11 matches. Churwell to win what I feel will be a thriller 4-3.

LLWLWW Leeds City OB Res v Huddersfield Amateur WLDLWD 5-2 AMAT

Here we have two good sides of a strong Division 3. Leeds City has 19pts from 11 games. Hudd Amat has 17 points from 14 games and is one place below City OB Res and with two points less. Feel that this should be a superb game, Both teams free of relegation worries and City OB Res probably too far behind in their promotion bid. Both teams have a more than useful current set of results with the disappointment for Amateur that they only won two league matches up to the end of October. Neither side noted for its consistency. Leeds City has Joe Ainley as its leading scorer with Anthony Wadsworth the goal getter in chief for Amateur. 4-3 Leeds City OB Res.

LWWLWW Leeds Medics IV v Thornesians Res LLLLLL NP

It is a much better season for a well-organised Leeds Medics IV. Medics have won 6 out of seven home games and are expected to add another home victory after their game on Saturday. Thornes have not done anything like as well as hoped but with the worst defensive record in Div 3 and failing to net a point from six home matches they have done well to retain their Div 3 slot for such a long time. Charlie Withycombe with 11 goals for Medics IV is proving to be a consistent scorer.

WLWWWL Leeds Modernians v Norristhorpe LWWWLW 4-1 NORRISTHORPE

A few years ago a game presented itself for the pre-match write up with both team’ prolific goal scorers and hardly a clean sheet between them but the game ended as a goalless draw. Can anyone support a goalless draw for this game although Norristhorpe did win the reverse fixture 4-1? Four goals for Norristhorpe – fits perfectly into their average of four goals per game. Norristhorpe’s defence is none too reliable and is joint second worse in the division. Modernians have goal figures of F 31 A 34. Not as spectacular but quite as effective as Norristhorpe but we can remind Norristhorpe of the dangers of underestimating the goal scoring achievements of Hugo Sach who has 19 league goals already. One goal below that is Dan Mountain who is a regular contributor for Norristhorpe. I could do worse that go for a four-four.




WLLLLD Shire Academics Res v Farnley Sports Res WDWWWL 4-1 FARNLEY

The defeat last Saturday suffered by promotion hunting Farnley Sports at Leeds City OB Res 3-2 was only their second away defeat of the season after eight away fixtures. They travel to Bedquilts to meet a Shire team that is looking to consolidate its Div 3 spot after promotion last season but Shire’s home form is a best suspect with one win out of six home games. A much better season than expected for Farnley who are still very much in the promotion race being only one point behind second placed East Ardsley Wdrs with both teams having played 10 games. Farnley should win this game that is important for both teams. Farnley need to keep hot on the tails of Fairbank and East Ardsley in the promotion race but, for Shire Res, a victory to keep them in clear water with regard to the bottom two. To that effect Sean Wheatley is suddenly finding his goal scoring touch for Shire Res but think that Sports will win by 4-2 and will their Div 3 top scorer Any Punton reach 20 goals for the campaign?

The Championship

Beeston St Anthony’s v Leeds Medics & Dentists Res
We played Beeston last week and they are a decent team and had a big match day squad. Last time out Medics won quite comfortably and will start as favourites. 1-4

Calverley Utd v Shire Academics
A big game for both teams with the bottom four all facing each other this week. Shire had an important win last week at fellow strugglers Thornesians. We drew out third game of the season last week and need to start turning those into three points. ?-?

Drighlington v Morley Town AFC
Game of the day and will show whether Drig have the quality to challenge Morley who were back lto winning ways last weekend at Alwoodley while Drig were putting six past Collingham. 3-2

Mount St Mary’s v Wortley
Both on 16 points however Mary's have two games in hand. Both teams had good cup wins last week and looks a close game. 2-2

Thornesians v Alwoodley Res
Another battle at the bottom. Thorns won the reverse encounter before Xmas. Potentially weather dependant at Thorns as won't be able to switch to Alwoodley as their firsts are at home. 2-1

Marflitt Trophy quarter final with eight Prem Div teams competing

Postby neville » Fri Jan 13, 2017 7:53 am

Marflitt Trophy quarter finals

Kick Off 1330 hrs

Ealandians v St Nicholas

Whether we will or won’t play tomorrow will be decided by those in charge. We have had snow in Shipley but already the temperature is at 0C and expected to rise by lunch time to 3 degrees. Everyone is looking forward to the quarter finals with a field that could not be much stronger with all eight teams from the Premier Division. We can add that we have the current holders Farsley Celtic and the runners up Stanningley on the bill. The Premier Division Farsley Celtic and runners up Ealandians are warming up energetically. The Championship winners St Nicholas and runners up Beeston are on the starting line and when it comes to previous winners of the Marflitt we have Ealandians twice victors, St Nicholas, Farsley Celtic Juniors, Stanningley OB, Leeds Medics twice and Grangefield as recently as 13/14 and 14/15. Just to add individual spice we have nine of the ten leading scores in the Premier Division and domestic cup games performing. Farsley’s Danny Lyons leads the way with 17 goals down to Grant Jackson of Grangefield on 10 goals with Callum of Alwoodley the only leading scorer absent.

St Nicholas and Ealandians have yet to play each other in the League. In this competition Ealandians have defeated Leeds Medics Res 2-1 and Mount St Mary’s 6-3 (aet). St Nicholas advanced by beating Championship leaders Morley Town AFC 6-1, old rivals Collingham Juniors 2-0 and St Bedes 6-3. Ealandians reached the last 16 of the County Cup but cold not match Beeston St Anthony’s on the day. Ealandians will need to recover from two recent cup set backs in the Halifax Dist Cup and the WRCFA Cup. St Nicholas are playing better week by week and have been able to add to their squad with Cameron Lyn outstanding last week against Medics. A big incentive for Ealandians to regain the Marflitt Trophy and keep their minds focussed on a Domestic Double. Could readily be extra time and penalties with Ealandians finding that St Nicholas pressure is relentless.


Farnley Sports v Beeston Juniors (To be played at Beeston Juniors)

Farnley Sports have knocked out one of Div 1’s leading teams Gildersome Spurs 4-2 and then a effected a surprise victory 7-3 over Alwoodley. Beeston Juniors knocked out Batelians 6-0, Thornesians by the odd goal in three and the excellent Horsforth St Margaret’s 4-3. Farnley and Beeston have already drawn 2-2 in the League and current form suggests another close contest – perhaps the tightest of the day. Our vision of Farnley over the past few seasons is that of a free scoring team but this year there has been a goals drought with only 11 goals from seven games. Likewise with Beeston we think of perhaps three goals per game but the miserable Prem Div defences have cut the goals scored figure to a mere 14 from 10 games. Farnley are next to bottom with Beeston two places above them with Farnley three points behind Beeston with three matches in hand. Defensively Farnley are as resilient as even conceding only 16 goals in seven games as opposed to Beeston’s 35 goals in ten matches. Without stretching my imagination at all I am going for a 1-0 Farnley success.


Farsley Celtic Juniors v Stanningley OB

Only one game for Farsley Celtic Jnrs and they beat promotion favourites Drighlington from the Championship but Stanningley defeated Farsley Celtic Res 3-2 and Alwoodley Res 3-0 in comparatively easy encounters. Farsley and Stanningley have already met twice this season with both games ending at 3-1 with Farsley winning the league match and Stanningley the Shield game. Farsley remain in the Leeds Senior Cup and they have a tough game next weekend at Robin Hood who needed penalties to dispose of Alwoodley last weekend. Farsley defeated Robin Hood two seasons ago but I digress. We have the Prem Div champions and currently second in the table meeting a Stanningley side that is slowly getting back to its best and is currently seventh after a shocker of a start. Tom Stewart is proving a thorn in the defence of quite a few teams with his triple against strugglers Trinity OB last week beautifully timed. There is little doubt that Farsley are the favourites to win the re-run of the 15/16 final that was eventually won by Farsley coming back from being 2-1 down. Stanningley has nothing to lose to use yet another cliché but if Stanningley play like they did when I watched them at Campion Res then Farsley will not be able to relax.


Leeds Medics v Grangefield OB


There have been two victories in the Marflitt Trophy for Medics who won at Beeston St Anthony’s 4-0 and are the only YAL side to defeat Stanley Utd in a domestic competition and they did so 5-1. Grangefield ousted Leeds Independent 3-1 and then conquered Huddersfield YMCA 7-1. The adversaries have met twice in the Premier Division and they drew 1-1 in the first game but Medics won with time to spare 6-1 in the reverse fixture. Grangefield meet Farnley Sports in the Shield on the28th Jan. Medics are top of the Premier Division but vulnerable to five teams below them. Grangefield have not been the force of seasons past but if the 4-1 win last weekend against Wigton Moor was an indication they are finding their true form then Medics will have to be at their best to succeed. Medics play brilliant football week in week out but they do need some more silverware for their Trophy Cupboard and perhaps the Marflitt route is the one that is the likeliest to succeed so going fro a 3-2 Medics victory.

Leading pair in Div 3 meet in Hancock quarter final

Postby neville » Fri Jan 13, 2017 10:58 am

Hancock Cup 0- Quarter Final

Fairbank Utd v East Ardsley Wdrs

Neither has won the Hancock Cup but under the old format East Ardsley Res did reach the Hancock Final from the bottom division. This should be a cracker with Fairbank Utd first and East Ardsley Wdrs second in Division 3. So far East Ardsley has beaten Wortley Res 9-0 and then comfortably left Leeds City OB Res some distance away at 7-3. For Fairbank a first round bye was followed by a 6—3 success against Horsforth Res and a splendid 5-4 victory against Div 2 promotion contenders Idle 5-4. East Ardsley is noted for its free scoring and Robert Vickers with 14 goals is their leading scorer but other top marksmen are Johnny Downey, Joe Hill and Connor Collinson. Mamadu Dambe is the leading score at Fairbank with19 goals with Omar Dambe on nine goals. The teams have not met this season and that adds to the mystery. Fairbank are well organised, can play at a high tempo and have players who will not surrender without giving their best for 90 minutes or even 120 this weekend. East Ardsley also have quality players who hardly know the meaning of defeat and that is why we expect quite a few goals and extra time at least?

Form is fickle in Division 4

Postby neville » Fri Jan 13, 2017 12:58 pm

Colton Ath Res 5th and Trinity 7th

Colton so up and down and they have the worst defence statistically in the Division after their drubbing last week against Horsforth Res. Trinity close to being a major player in this division but first team demands have taken some of their expected reserve squad to higher things. Colton Ath Res 4 Trinity OB Res 4 is being tapped out by our expert prophet. To emphasise one Colton’s several positive aspects they do have the Divisions leading score Phil Woofitt on 16 goals.



LDLWWW Horsforth St Margaret’s Res v Ealandians III LWWLWL 1-2 Horsforth

Horsforth second and Ealandians III – 6th

Horsforth has recovered from a pre-Christmas blip. Ealandians III too are better than they were in early season but expect Horsforth to win 3-1.


DWLWDW Morley Town III v North Leeds – LLWLDD – 14-1 Morley - pipe opener

Morley 3rd abnd Nth Leeds next to bottom

Morley is playing with more confidence than at any time this season. North Leeds does still not impress many people. Can they escape the drop? We can expect a narrow victory for Morley according to the Oracle.



WWWLDW Rodillian v Beeston Juniors Res LWLLDL 1-5 RODILLIAN

Rodillian first v Beeston 4th

Rodillian have not been so bright over past three games. Nor are Beeston in great nick with one win in last six outings. Home win 2-1.



WLLLWD Wortley Res v Woodhouse Moor Meths LLLDLL – 4-0 Woodhouse

Wortley Res bottom and Woodhouse 8th

Wortley are improving with Woodhouse now off-form although they defended well against Rodillian last week.

Scorers

Phil Woofitt – Colton 16
Joe Clapham – Horsforth Res 14
Jason Helm – Morlwey13
Anthony Lewis – Woodh9ouse – 9
Paul Friend – Ealandians III 8
