WORTLEY Juniors Under-14s signalled their Garforth League title credentials with Sunday’s 10-0 romp at home to Pontefract St Josephs Under-14s.

The double digit display kept Wortley top of Division One with Leeds City Juniors Under-14s four points adrift and with a game in hand.

Jake Wright and Ollie Mcallister both bagged hat-tricks for Wortley whose James Cameron added a brace.

Charlie Parnell Wilson and Jack Bowes also netted for Wortley who are in County Cup action this weekend against much-fancied Northowram.

Kirkstall Crusaders Under-15s finally kick-started their season with an emphatic 6-1 win at home to Division Two high-flyers Hunslet Club Greens Under-15s.

Kirkstall found themselves a goal down within the first five minutes, but inspirational captain Ellis Redfearn rallied his troops and when Barney Mguni levelled with 10 minutes of the first half remaining, the comeback was on.

Paddy McGill hit a screamer on the stroke of half time and Kirkstall’s tails were up.

The second half saw Hunslet fold as Hakkinan Anani hit a hat-trick to earn himself the man of the match plaudits and Frankie Gibson also netted.

Notable performances came from Kirkstall keeper Travis Byrne, Rinor Ejupi and Faisal Sheikh on his debut.

Kirkstall Crusaders Under-14s obliged 2-0 in a Division Three derby at Leeds City Juniors Colts Under-14s.

The pace of Barney Mguni proved the difference as he set up a double for goal machine Caleb Masiyiwa.

Kirkstall’s Bima Bramana took the player of the match award for his fearless tackling in defence.

Drighlington Under-13s A enjoyed a 4-0 success at home to Honley in Division One of the Garforth League.

Drig’s James Shaw struck a fine hat-trick with Luke Dufton adding the other.

In Division Two, Drighlington B Under-13s came back from 2-0 down to oblige 3-2 at Northowram Under-13s.

Goalscorers for Drighlington were Matthew Hazelwood, Harrison Smith and Luke Marshall.

Jason Whittaker excelled in the defence and took the player of the match award.

Hall Green United Under-12s moved seven points clear at the top of Division 5B with a 5-1 success at basement boys Norristhorpe Under-12s.

Alex Tunningly opened the scoring for Green who led 4-0 at the break with Dalton Jackson adding a brace and Emily Sykes also netting.

Jackson then sealed his hat-trick before Norristhorpe bagged a consolation.

Hall Green United Under-11s enjoyed a 5-2 win at home to Upperthong Spitfires Under-11s in Division 4B.

Green went ahead through Harry Saville’s shot from the half way line and while Upperthong soon drew level, a Cian Small finish restored Green’s lead.

Substitute Neel Rangoo then bagged Green’s third and fourth goals either side of the interval.

And, after an Upperthong riposte, Marcus Barrett brought up the Green nap hand,

Mathew Patterson took the Green player of the match award.

Hall Green United Under-10s were in action at home to Shelley Under-10s in Division S with Daniel Myers snatching his third hat trick in three weeks.

Jack Batley also netted for Green whose commanding Noah Harding was named player of the match.

Hall Green United Under-10s B hosted Netherton Eagles Under-10s in Division F and netted twice through Ethan Auty.

Dylan Lindsey took the Green player of the match award.

Leeds Schools FA Under-11s A, meanwhile, strolled to a 9-0 victory in their West Yorkshire League clash at home to Scarborough Under-11s.

The Whites took just 15 seconds to net their first when a Josh Stones through ball was pounced on by Cole Roberts who evaded two tackles to steer the ball home.

Stones then went on to bag a brilliant five-goal haul to add to a brace from Alfie Wilkinson and a ferocious finish from Dylan Youmbi.

Jack Teahan was also a shining light down the left hand side for Leeds who would have netted more goals but for the skill of the Scarborough keeper.
