WEST YORKSHIRE Premier big guns Leeds City showed little brotherly love as Leeds City Old Boys were thumped 10-0 in a Leeds & District FA Senior Challenge Cup mismatch.

City would have been long odds-on favourites against the Yorkshire Amateur League Division Three outfit and made no mistake with hotshot James Hochstrasser slamming in a four-timer.

Sean Fitzpatrick added a hat-trick with an Andrew Crossland strike, a Mitchell Cameron penalty and an own goal completing the double-figure tally.

City will now face a quarter-final at West Yorkshire League Division One side Headingley AFC who romped to an 8-1 success at home to Yorkshire Amateur League top-flight side Stanningley Old Boys.

A hat-trick from Ashley Austin and a Richard Booth double was supported by a goal each from Callum Butcher, Joe McKinley and Ross Barrett for the hosts.

Tom Stewart bagged the consolation for Stanningley.

Newly-promoted West Yorkshire League Premier outfit Carlton Athletic continued their fantastic start to the season with a 6-3 success at home to title rivals Beeston St Anthony’s.

Andrew Payne and Adam Bowler both bagged doubles for Carlton, added to by strikes from Reece Fennell and Scott Hargreaves.

Carlton will now host Yorkshire Amateur League top flight side Grangefield Old Boys who recorded a 2-0 success at league rivals Leeds Medics & Dentists after extra time. Matty Tomlinson’s sublime chip was backed up by an Andy Kenyon strike just as penalties looked imminent. Alwoodley will help fly the Yorkshire Amateur League flag in the last eight after a 1-0 verdict at Old Centralians.

The game was decided by a Graham Shaw penalty with five minutes left.

Alwoodley will face West Yorkshire League Division One side Whitkirk Wanderers who edged out County Amateur League visitors Westbrook YMCA 3-2.

Oliver Mallinson, Eric Seed and Chris Baldwin bagged one each for Whitkirk who saw Wayne Prideaux sent off but still obliged despite Westbrook goals from James Watson and Giorgio Fauarulo as part of a normal time 2-2 draw. Beechwood Gate are the sole Wakefield League side in the last eight after a 3-2 verdict at home to YAL side Wortley AFC after extra-time.

Wortley were 2-0 down but took the game to the wire through Liam Heaton and Danny Purcell.

Beechwood will visit West Yorkshire Premier side Hunslet Club who ousted YAL visitors Wigton Moor 4-1 through a Kabim Ibrahim double plus a goal each from Kyermeh Samuel and Joe Wood.
