Division 2

Colton Athletic v Morley Town AFC Res
Colton lost their last 4 in all comps, very unlike them as they're a good team. Would expect them to overcome a tough Morely side. 4-1

Ealandians Res v Woodkirk Valley
Still on our run of only losing 1 game since November and we will certainly want to keep that up this weekend. Really tricky away game, needing a penalty to win 1-0. Expect another hard battle. No prediction

Idle v Old Centralians
Doesn't bode well for the away side, I'm sorry to say. The goals for and against columns could make this one a big score. 7-0

Leeds City OB v Collegians
Once again game of the day includes Leeds City, shock! Would be first on Match of the Day, this one. Huge game that will have a big impact on promotion. I'll take the cowards way out. 2-2

Lepton Highlanders v Sandal Wdrs
Lepton very organised and hard working in the game against us but their league position doesn't really reflect that. Will opt for a narrow away win. 1-3

Division 5

By way of interest I have extracted the appearances stats for division 5. This is bound to be influenced by the number of games played by any of the teams involved but the outstanding statistics this morning are those of Dewsbury Rangers OB Reserves who have played 18 match out of their 20 scheduled with two to go. Jake Peace, Liam Smith and Nathan Stanley have appeared in every game with Matthew Briggs and Gareth Redman each having missed two matches. Alex Peace, Chris Riley, Ryan Simpson and Aiden Squires have played in 15 games and if we add Kieran Thomas on 14 matches then we have the nucleus of the team. It is encouraging to read about such a success with regard to games played when some teams are forced to make huge changes in personnel every week.

WWWLLW Horsforth St Margaret’s III v Drighlington Res WWWLWD NP

Horsforth III is third behind runaway leaders Garforth Crusaders and second placed Shire Academics III. Horsforth’s main battle is for second place and promotion. Horsforth are six points behind Shire Academics III with four games in hand. A couple of recent setbacks have seen Horsforth dip to fourth in the form chart with both blips at home where they have won four out of eight games without a draw. Horsforth has two home games and five away fixtures left with a 100% away record of five wins from five attempts. Included among the fixtures left are two with this week’s opponent Drighlington Res who have moved steadily up the table and are third above Horsforth in the form chart. Like Horsforth, Drig are playing better away than at home and this should add to the game at Horsforth this week. Horsforth have notched 44 goals and that is middle ground in Division 5 but their defence in the second best in the Division. Drig has been guilty of wasting chances and have scored 39 from15 matches but in terms of chances created this is a poor return. However the Drig defence is the fourth best in the Division. The immediate reaction is to go for a home victory when looking at the table. Checking home and away form then we are looking at a draw or an away victory. A low scoring draw, even a goalless draw is the preferable possibility and will go for a 2-2 but Horsforth do have an overriding incentive to do well. Appearances for Drighlington are led by Kieran Boulton and Jamie Snellgrove on 14 out of 15 games played. Kieran Adams. Gary Resendez and Patrick Sammon have taken part in all of Horsforth’s League fixtures. Top scorer for Horsforth is Nathan McDonnell with 11 from nine games whereas Chris Leather has eight goals from eight from Drighlington.


WLWLWL Leeds City OB III v Methley Utd LWLWLD 5-3 METHLEY

Many good things have spoken and written about these two sides this season. The young Leeds City OB third team is playing some magical football and drew praise from Garforth Crusaders last week about the way they play the ball through midfield. On a similar basis Methley have also impressed. They did have a sticky patch in December and January but they are playing well and that included a hard won point at Drig Res lat week at 2-2. Leading Div 5 scorer is Reuben Young of Leeds City OB who has an impressive 25 goals to his credit with Connor Feeley on nine goals. As shown below Chris Kamara leads the way with 12 for Methley Utd. In terms of appearances Scott Graham (16), Luke Wood and Ben Birch (15 each) are consistently appearing for Methley Utd. Ben Comery, Luke Harrison and Reuben Young have 15 lines-up with Leeds City. Not much to choose between the teams. Both teams fell early on in the Hodgson Cup with Leeds City losing to Morley Utd 2-0 and Methley fall to Norristhorpe Res 3-1. Rest assured more goals on Saturday without doubt. Leeds City OB III is much happier going forward. Methley slightly stronger physically and do have the 5-3 earlier victory under their belts. I believe this will be a high scoring draw at 3-3 but a fascinating fixture and one well worth watching.

WWWWLW Shire Academics III v North Leeds Res LLLLLL 4-0 SHIRE III

The teams have already met and Shire won with time to spare 4-0. The loss of players to the first team early in the season has disappointed North Leeds and to dwell on it would be unfair but we can say that Eamon Tweed is their man with the leading number of appearances and most goals and is on 13 and four respectively. Shire’s successful manager Jonny Collins has 6 goals from 16 appearances for Shire and that is the best for Shire in both headings.

Shire are enjoying a superb season. Their goal difference is remarkable with only two goals separating the goals scored and the goals conceded. The number of goals scored is the second lowest in the Division but this well organised side has the third best defensive record. Furthermore they conceded 23 goals in four games early season matches and have let in 10 goals in the remaining 13 fixtures. They won last week at home to Bedes Res 5-2. They had lost to Garforth Crusaders 3-0 the week earlier to break a winning streak of eight winning matches with the previous defeat again to Garforth 2-0 against whom they failed to score against in 180 minutes football. The facts point towards a Shire victory with the battle for second place a thrilling one.

LLLWLW Woodkirk Valley Res v Garforth Crusaders WDWWWW MATCH AWARDED TO GARFORTH

Woodkirk have not done as well as they or we expected but to be third to bottom of any Division and have two players in the top four scoring chart is a remarkable achievement. Luke Henshaw has 21 goals and James Tesseyman 16 goals and they are two talented strikers. Sandwiched between them is Steven Phillips who is Garforth’s leading scorer on 16 goals with Tom Helliwell on 12. Woodkirk looked doomed a couple of weeks ago but victories against North Leeds Res and St Bedes Res, both colleagues in distress, has made life much sweeter for Woodkirk. North Leeds are four points behind with three games in hand of Woodkirk but such is the form of North Leeds Res it is difficult to see where their next point is coming from. Bedes have one game left and are two points behind Woodkirk with a game in hand but that game is with North Leeds Res and can see Bedes Res winning that. Woodkirk has a far superior goal difference and I think a point from one of their remaining three games will ensure safety but these games are against Garforth Crusaders on Saturday, Horsforth SM the week after and finally Shire Academics III. Thus Woodkirk Res joust with the three leading teams for their remaining fixtures this season. Crusaders have done really well and are smidgen away from being deserved titleholders. The goals have come freely but Leeds City OB III and Norristhorpe have scored more. It is the defence that has particularly caught the eye and has

Disappointing to find that three items posted on the site, under this thread, have been deleted and unsure how this can happen.

Therefore it would be helfpful if anyone can shed any light on this.

On the other hand if Preecy and Wildcat Army have kept a copy of their contributions can they replace them on site. This would be much appreciated by all of us.

I am looking at Prem Div and at this stage hope others will look at divisions other than one and six and of course 2 and 5.

We are also trying to recover the lost work. Stil unsure as to how three separate posts can be deleted and everything else left in tact.

Apologies to Preecy and to Wildcat for the incnvenience caused and hope this will not deter them from their eagerly awaited contributions

Premier Division

WLDLWW Ealandians v St Nicholas WWWLWL NP

Initially a brief look at appearances this season in the Prem Division. Beeston Jnrs has played 15 matches and Brad Lloyd has appeared in every League game. They are a close knit community with Jo Ansboro, Ryan Dawson, and keeper Brendan Wood on 14 matches each with Carlton Binks on 13.With three players on 12 matches then we have the makings of “the one for all and all for one team sprit”. It is the same for Ealandians who have played 13 games. They have Wayne Crossley and Andy Hudson as ever presents, with Martin Coldwell, Dene Heppenstall, Lee McGrath, Colin Schofield all on twelve first team League fixtures and James Symonds on eleven.

A résumé of the only meeting between the teams this season and that was in the Marflitt Trophy.

“Ealandians had what seemed like 30 opportunities to hit the target in this Marflitt tie and netted four of the chances on offer. St Nicholas hardly wasted a crumb netting six goals from 10 attempts. Neither side was at its best but St Nicholas caught Ealandians out by going 2-0 in front thanks to Marcus Hill but Ealandians retaliated with the score 3-3 at half time with Jymel Black adding the third St Nicks goal. St Nicholas went 3-5 ahead; Ealandians reduced the deficit to 4-5, before a late goal gave St Nicks a match winning 6-4 advantage. Later goals for St Nicholas came from Jonathan Daniels, Ashton Campbell and from Marcus Hill to complete his triple. Danny Donaldson 2, Alex Tait and Wayne Crossley were on target for Ealandians. “That sums up the meeting in the Marflitt Cup of these two teams.”

Very good interview with Ealandians Manger Wayne Crossley regarding Ealandians 5-3 victory over Alwoodley in the Goals Supplement this week, but he added that the reason for their early run of success was the regular availability of players and that still applies with a superb team spirit at Ealandians. However the loss of eight points out of nine in the dark days after Christmas has probably cost them the title. Wayne added “I think we’ll be there or thereabouts in second or third and we’ll certainly have a hand in who wins it”.

St Nicholas are fourth in the form chart but as Ealandians have illustrated only three points out of the last nine takes a great deal of recouping. St Nicks are comfortable with 13 points from nine games but the main aim now must be a victory on the 29th March at Liversedge against Farnley sports. We will look for a 3-1 Ealandians victory.

WLLLDL Farnley Sports v Farsley Celtic Juniors WWDWWW 2-1 FARSLEY


The history in respect of their previous meeting is reproduced below to indicate how close each side viewed the game – from their standpoint.

“Champions Farsley Celtic Juniors made it two wins from two games when they overcame Farnley Sports 2-1 in a tense local derby - the first game of the campaign for Farnley Sports. The nervous tension was there for all to see early on but it was Celtic who went in 1-0 ahead at the interval thanks to Louis Surtees goal after a quarter of an hour. The game settled down after that opening goal and both teams felt they had the better of the contest with both keepers active. After 70 minutes wide man Chad Morris bagged a superb second goal for Farsley and but after 80 minutes it was Joe Cryer who reduced the arrears but the Farsley defence stood firm to enable them to come out victorious 2-1.”

The season has panned out in different way for the two clubs. Farsley are still in the Marflitt Trophy in the semi final and are second to Stanley United at the top of the Premier Division. Farnley are second to bottom in the Premier Division and last week were seriously exposed by an exuberant Beeston Juniors who won 4-0. We can say that they have reached two semi-finals and one of their semi-final matches is in the shield in which they face the dynamic Morley Town AFC. The Marflitt finalists are shown below with possibility of a Farnley and Farsley final not out of the question:

“Semi-final 22nd March Leeds Medics & Dentists v Farsley Celtic Juniors @Liversedge FC 7.30pm

Semi-final 29th March Farnley Sports v St Nicholas @Liversedge FC 7.30pm”

A glance at the table shows Farsley as the in-form team occupying the second position in the league table. Farnley are next to bottom but in both the league and the form tables.
Farsley leading scorer is Danny Lyons who netted yet again last week whilst it is in the goals department that Farnley are lacking with Shane Gaunt on four League goals out of a mere 13 netted by Farnley – a surprising low “goals for” stat for Farnley Spts. Farsley Celtic forecast to win 3-1.

DWDWWW Stanley Utd v Stanningley LWDWWL 2-1 STANLEY UTD

Stanley Utd back in the League and have a tough home game with a generally improving Stanningley who were caught out last week 4-0 last weekend by Farsley Celtic Juniors in a lack lustre display from both sides but particularly by Stanningley. Stanningley will be demanding a 100% improvement but even with that improvement Stanley Utd, with the best defence in the Premier Division, will not be easy to breakdown. Stanley Utd go into this game on the back of a penalty shoot loss against Medics last weekend in the Leeds Senior Cup but they were the first team this season to keep a clean sheet against Medics and that must be much more that a consolation prize. Goal scoring is touched on and 19 yeas old Josh Whiteley leads the Stanley list of scorers with eight to his name and often these are deciding goals in important encounters but do not forget the value of the goals for Joseph Childs with five goals from 7 games. . The man looking for the 2017 Golden boot for Stanningley is u/21 player Tom Stewart with six goals from12 starts but he is an if-form player. Leading appearances for Stanningley is James McGeorge who has not yet missed a game with Tom Stewart on 12 and Jay Carr on 11. Nathan Faint, Ben Huntington and Liam Powell have appeared in all Stanley’s eleven games. Close game but Stanningley OB may find the Stanley Utd defence too difficult to penetrate and the hosts win 2-0 to further boost their drive for the Premier Division title.

LLLLLW Trinity OB v Grangefield OB LWLWLw 5-1GRANGEFIELD

Last weekend was a huge relief for Grangefield. They won somewhat unexpectedly against St Nicholas with the kind of high tempo display we associate with Grangefield and the return of Andy Kenyon is working even if the ace marksman had yet to score a goal since his return from injury and three subs was an added bonus. The goals for Kristian Dacre and Tom Hall in the first half and Matty Tomlinson and Keelan Milner in the second will give Grangefield confidence and they now have 11 points from 10 games – a milestone of more than a point a game. Trinity had already reached a crisis point in a Division in which we must restate that only one team will be relegated. I think it will be hard for Trinity to overcome Grangefield in its current positive mood. The only thing lacking now at Grangefield is consistency in that the statistics produced above shows them winning one game and losing the next. The last time out for Trinity gave them an invaluable three points against Alwoodley and it is a matter of how much confidence they have gained from that winning experience. Had a quick glance at the appearances and Adam Gillott of Trinity has appeared in 13 of Trinity OB 14 games with Dan Morris on twelve. For Grangefield James Kemp has played in all the 10 league matches with Dean Bell on nine. Leading scorers for Grangefield are Kristian Dacre, Grant Jackson and Matthew Tomlinson on four each with Stevie Travers on six for Trinity.

Shield Quarter Final and little between the teams

Postby neville » Fri Feb 24, 2017 9:12 am

Yorkshire Old Boys Shield – Quarter Final

Kick off 1330 hours

Alwoodley v Beeston Juniors

Alwoodley:

Rd 1 – Wheelwright 0-8
Rd 2 – Drighlington 0-2
Rd 3 – Beeston Jun

Beeston Juniors

Rd 1 – Stanley Utd 4-1
Rd 2 - East Ardsley 8-1
Rd 3 – Alwoodley

Alwoodley are the holders of the Shield having defeated North Ferriby Athletic 5-1 in last year’s final at Pocklington on a dark, dismal night lit up by a superb hat trick from the master blaster Graham Shaw. This was Alwoodley’s second victory in the Shield having been successful in 2010-2011 when that season’s Golden Boot winner Graham played a crucial part in their 3-2 victory after extra time against Mods.

The winner of this all Premier Division quarter final tie will have to face a fresh challenge against Yarm from the Teesside League. Neither side has had a particularly easy journey even to this stage. Alwoodley did not shrink away from the challenge of Championship promotion and title favourites Drighlington succeeding 2-0. “Drighlington were expected to defeat a severely weakened Alwoodley side but they failed to grasp the nettle and only had one shot on goal all the match preferring to indulge in neat triangles in the middle of the park but showing no inclination to drive forward meaningfully. Two goals for the returning Dino Mulavdic settled the game with one close to half time and the other after 65 minutes following a cross from Danny Whincup.”

On the other hand Beeston had a pleasing first round victory against the Premiership leaders Stanley Utd 4-1 in October and then easily avoided the banana skin placed a few feet away by Div 3 runaway leaders East Ardsley Wdrs 8-1.

“Beeston Juniors progressed to the second round by beating Stanley United 4-1 in under -strength Stanley’s second setback of the campaign. Beeston Juniors took the lead with parity restored by a super strike from distance by Josh Whiteley although Beeston had regained their lead by the break and added two more goals for good measure. Their goal scorers, in a tremendous display, were George Lazaro 2 (one pen), Thomas Lund and Brad Lloyd with the two clubs meeting in the League on the following Saturday. That encounter ended as a goalless draw.”

For Alwoodley a chance to field smething like their best eleven would be a boost to their confidence with this the likely road to silverware. There have been no such problems at Beestson and recognised in the appearnces made by the Beeston players for their club with few games missed by their tightly knit squad. Beeston did lose the League game earlier in the piece 3-2. I think it will be just as close this time with Beeston, improving week by week, adapting to the Premiership. Alwoodley has the players with enough experience to win this game. Beeston have the energy and team spirit to cause an upset. Certainly Alwoodley cannot lie back and go three goals down as they did last week at Ealandians and expect to make a comeback. Alwoodley, if they play for the full ninety minutes, will win. Otherwise Beeston will rapidly take command and punish their opponents.

East Ardsley try to avenge their earlier defeat against Farnley Sports Res

Postby neville » Fri Feb 24, 2017 10:49 am

Division 3

WWWWWW East Ardsley Wdrs v Farnley Sports ResWWLWWWD 5-3 SPORTS

Match of the day in Div 3. East Ardsley are now eight points ahead of Fairbank and nine ponts ahead of Farnley Sports with both Farnley and Fairbank having two games in hand. East Ardsley are scoring goals at regular intervals and have scored 78 with Norristhorpe on 60, the second highest scorers. If East Ardsley keep winning then they will be champions. Not only will the points be needed on Saturday they need to avenge the only defeat of the season and that was when defeatd by third placed Farnley Sports. Two points dropped aainst Fairbank last week was deemed unlucky and Farnley cannot afford to drop thee points this week as that would put them four points away from Fairbank. Farnley has a good defence but will they be strong ebnough to restrict the number of Ardsley shots on goal. Should be a great game and get along and have a look to make your on minds up on this one?

LLLWLL FC Headingley v Shire Academics Res LLWWWW - 5-2 SHIRE

Headingle are still having a dreadful season in terms of points won and have not done as well as we or they expected over the past few weeks but hope they are still enjoying their football. Shire suddenly come good after torrid time, and who can ask for more than four wins out of four, and with a recent victory over FCH means that FC Headingley should be conquered a second time.

DWWDDL Huddersfield Amateur v Churwell Lions LDWLDW 2-1 CHURWELL

Two sides that have had mixed seasons and the middle of the table awaits. Huddersfield started badly, had a brilliant spell but are tapering away as the season winds down. Churwell endured a poor start but steady improvement seen. Churwell won 2-1 last time these teams met. Same result is not unreasonable.

WLLDDW Leeds Medics & Dentists IV v Fairbank Utd WWWLD 5-0 FAIRBANK

Medics have a reputation for free scoring but inconsistent results have slowed down the "goals for" column this season. Nevertheless reaching fourth is a fine achievement and whilst I feel they will give promotion chasing Fairbank a good run for their money the previous result beween the two teams would provide the 5-0 margin expected. Fairbank fortunate to be second. They were second best at times against Farnley last time out who did not take the chances on offer, with Sports unluckily denied three points after a hand ball had been missed and from which Fairbank netted their equaliser.

LLLLLL Leeds Modernians v Thornesians Res LLLLDL 1-5 MODS

This game will give badly needed points to one of the two sides involved. Could be one point each. 7 consecutive defeats for Mods with Hugo Sachs' goals the only saving grace. Thornes are way off the pace and they will not find it easy to win their game and will go 3-1 Mods.

Divisn four has a scramble for promotion and the title

Postby neville » Fri Feb 24, 2017 2:52 pm

Division 4

WWWWWW Horsforth St Margaret’s Res v Morley Town AFC III DWWWWW 0-4 HORSFORTH

Two games in Div 4 with the game between Horsforth and Morley one of the games of the season with Morley Town AFC III who lead Division 4 combating Horsforth St Mary’s who are third. Sandwiched between them are Rodillian whose form has collapsed over the past two months. Horsforth are the more prolific of the two teams with both teams having conceded 25 goals. The away form of Morley is brilliant with six wins out of seven with two away fixtures to come with lowly Wortley Res being the closing fixture. On the other hand Horsforth has one home fixture with the game unplayed against Ealandians III declared void with no points awarded, and that will mean Horsforth and Ealandians III will only have 17 fixtures. Horsforth’s home form is not that exciting but, if they defeat Morley III, then they will hope Morley loses their final game with Wortley Res but that seems unlikely. If Horsforth beat Morley then, for Rodillian to be in a promotion slot, they must defeat North Leeds, If North Leeds win or the game is drawn then Rodillian will have 38 points.

To summarise – Morley wins or draws one of two games then they are promoted. Morley lost both games then dependant on the results of the other two sides.
Horsforth lose or draw – Morley and Rodillian promoted. Horsforth win then to may permutations to consider.

If Rodillian lose then Morley promoted but Horsforth must win their game with Morley to reach Div 3.

It is a nightmare and perhaps better to wait until tomorrow night.

DLWWWL North Leeds v Rodillian LDWWLL 6-0 RODILLIAN

North Leeds the third team in form chart and hoping to finish fourth and a win against Rodillian would clinch that. North Leeds are in fine fettle but Rodillian, who looked certain to win promotion at one point, have fallen away with only two victories in their last six games. The question to ask is why have they faltered after such a brilliant start to the campaign? Conversely we may ask why have the superb early leaders of Div 4 probably wasted their promotion opportunity?

Hodgson Cup Semi-Final

To be played at Thornhill CCC

Kick Off 1430 hrs

West End Park v Norristhorpe Res

West End Park:

Rd 1 – Batelians 1-5
Rd 2 – Walk Over v Drighlington Res
Rd 3 – Thornesians III – 8-3

Norristhorpe Res:

Rd 1- Methley Utd – 3-1
Rd 2 – Dewsbury Rangers Res – 6-3
Rd 3 – St Bedes Res – 2-1

Both teams have won their matches that have all been played against teams from their own division. West End Park appears to be enjoying their first YAL campaign with their enthusiasm admirable and I like the way they are first with their result on our site each Saturday. They have settled at Sands Lane that was once the sports field used by Wheelwright OB. West End Park have had a good first season and they are third. Norristhorpe have done well since they joined the YAL and noted for their bright, entertaining football. They were promoted last season and have consolidated their place in Division five by scoring a copious amount of goals and letting in a sackful of at their own end of the ground, but must emphasise they are always entertaining to watch, and love the regular reports on their games. Think it will be close but with the ground drying out the pace and control of Norristhorpe may just win the day.Norristhopre have had the more difficult journey of the two clubs to the semi-final. The other semi final will be between Morley Utd and Rothwell Res at Weetwood on the first of April. We are certain to have a new name on the Trophy albeit the competition is in its revamped form. How do teams like the new cup format?

[quote="neville"]Division 4

WWWWWW Horsforth St Margaret’s Res v Morley Town AFC III DWWWWW 0-4 HORSFORTH

Horsforth’s home form is not that exciting but, if they defeat Morley III, then they will hope Morley loses their final game with Wortley Res but that seems unlikely. If Horsforth beat Morley then, for Rodillian to be in a promotion slot, they must defeat North Leeds, If North Leeds win or the game is drawn then Rodillian will have 38 points.

To summarise – Morley wins or draws one of two games then they are promoted. Morley lost both games then dependant on the results of the other two sides.
Horsforth lose or draw – Morley and Rodillian promoted. Horsforth win then too may permutations to consider.

Still cannot see how three separate posts for this weeks' fixtures have disappeared and yet two others have remained.

Will keep the continuity for Divs 1 and six



Division 1

Dewsbury Rangers 2 Old Batelians 2
Farsley Celtic Jnrs Res 1 Huddersfield YMCA 2
Garforth Rangers 2 Horsforth St Margaret’s 4
Grangefield OB Res 1 St Bedes 3
Leeds Medics & Dentists III 3 Leeds Independent 3
Rothwell 0 Gildersome Spurs OB 5

Miss the insight of Preecy in this division.





Div 6

Old Batelians Res 4 Leeds City OB IV 2
Old Centralians Res 2 Morley Utd 6
Rothwell Res 2 Middleton Park 3
Thornesians III 3 Leeds Modernians Res 5

The excellent work of Wildcatarmy lost in the crash.

WWWWWW Horsforth St Margaret’s Res v Morley Town AFC III DWWWWW 0-4 HORSFORTH

Two games in Div 4 with the game between Horsforth and Morley one of the games of the season with Morley Town AFC III who lead Division 4 combating Horsforth St Mary’s who are third. Sandwiched between them are Rodillian whose form has collapsed over the past two months. Horsforth are the more prolific of the two teams with both teams having conceded 25 goals. The away form of Morley is brilliant with six wins out of seven with two away fixtures to come with lowly Wortley Res being the closing fixture.
