In Division 1, Sam Simkins struck twice to ensure leaders North Leodis retained their 100 per cent record after two games, steering the visitors to a 2-1 win at Beck & Call who, on the strength of this performance, look likely to ease away from the bottom two in the not-too-distant future.

Garden Gate are bottom after losing out 5-1 at home to second-placed Old Crooked Clock First on Sunday. Adam Burnell, Abubacary Camara (2), and sub’ Ousainey Juwara Kora were among the goals for Clock.

Churwell also highlighted the close nature of the division’s standings at the moment after they held third-placed Kippax Sundays to a 1-1 draw. Ben Bedford bagged the vital goal for the hosts.

Leeds Alpha and Daisy Whites produced a 4-4 end result. Joseph Colley (2), Brandon Smith and Jamal Stewart struck for Alpha with Gary Abbey (2), Sam Best and Josh Simpson on target for the visitors.
