Seacroft afc continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 4-1 victory at East Leeds Celtic to remain top of the Championship, writes ROB CONLON.

The leaders have now won six and drawn one of their seven league games this season to sit one point ahead of Corpus Christi having played two games less.

Andy Jackson bagged a brace while Kieron Goodison also struck for Seacroft, who were aided by an own-goal.

Dale Venables hit Celtic’s consolation who were on the back of a seven game unbeaten streak which included five victories.

Despite their recent form Celtic remain in sixth place, with only Western Juniors and New Farnley below them.

This weekend Seacroft turn their attentions to the cup as they host Terry Pears Premier side East End Park looking to cause an upset.

Elsewhere Corpus Christi travelled to Western Juniors for the second week running and followed up their 4-2 cup success with a 3-0 win thanks to Phil Jarvis’ brace and Steven Kay’s goal.

Third-placed Badri FC remain within touching distance of Seacroft after they beat Bramley Villagers 2-1 to stay three points off top spot.

Damon Turpin and Derik Ross hit the home side’s goals while Matty Christopher’s goal for Bramley ensured a nervy finish.

Badri could move level on points with the leaders at the weekend should they win at Western Juniors, and would move top if they won by more than four goals.

New Farnley are still looking for their first points of the season after they travelled to West Leeds Wortley and were beaten 2-0.

Brad Strutt and Danny Green both notched to secure a comfortable three points.

The defeat is New Farnley’s ninth of the season as they sit stranded at the foot of the table.

In the Terry Pears Premier league, Station Whites made up ground on runaway leaders Chapeltown Fforde Grene with a 3-1 triumph over Halfway House Stanningley.

Stanningley will look to take comfort in the fact that five of their six defeats this season have been at the hands of the top two teams in the league, with their only other defeat coming at Halfway FC.

The Whites are now ten points behind the leaders Grene, who have won all nine of their league games this season to sit comfortably at the top of the league.

East End Park WMC could reduce that defecit even further should they win their game in hand on the leaders.

They travelled to Halfway FC and eased to a 4-1 win to remain level on points with Station Whites.

East End travel to Potternewton Park at the weekend to take on KKS Zubry who have gone three league games without a win.

East End have marched up the league on the back of a eye-catching run of form, winning six straight games.

Richmond Hill hosted Harehills WMC and pushed their opponents close but ultimately remain without a win this campaign as they were beaten 2-1. Ben Dyer gave Richmond hope but they fell short as Robin Webster and Trevor Johnson snatched the winning goals for Harehills.

Had Richmond managed to secure their maiden victory of the season they would have moved off the bottom of the table and above their opponents on goal difference.

As it stands they are now five points behind their nearest rivals, Halfway House Stanningley.
