Chapeltown Fforde Grene got revenge on their arch-rivals Seacroft WMC Athletic, winning 3-2 to knock them out of the Sunday Senior Cup.

The result is a reverse of the scoreline when the top two Jubilee Premier sides met up in the Sanford Cup in their previous game.

Ryan Robinson bagged a brace once again, but Daniel Sheriffe, Eder Ruiz, Kaydon Fishley each scored to send Chapeltown through to the third round.

In the Jubilee Premier league HT Sports took advantage of the top two being out of action in the league with a vital closley contested 3-2 victory over Halton Moor.

Steve Palfry scored two and Sam Ackroyd got the other to keep their title hopes alive, while Halton got goals through Roy Stammer and Mickey Nelson.

Belle Isle did their goal-difference no harm after they battered AFC Hanover Arms 7-1.

Danny Hurley’s strike for Hanover paled in significance to Stephen Crawford’s hat-trick and goals from Ian McBurney, Killian Mabey, Scott Jackson and Kris Robertshaw.

In the Leeds Combination Premier League, leaders Pudsey Liberal Club were held at home to a 2-2 draw by JB Celtic.

Graeme Sargeant and Liam Mallinson struck for the top side, but JB Celtic held their own as Oliver Carter inspired them with a brace. Queenswood Crusaders seized the initiative in the title race after they thrashed fellow contenders, Main Line Social, 5-1.

Ryan Sharrocks’ goal was in vein for Main Line as they were undone by goals from Phil Oniama, James Hochstrasser, James Burgess and two from Mark Bentley.

Beeston St Anthony’s Sunday went down at home 1-0 to Pudsey Juniors Old Boys.

Louis Cherkiau scored the only goal of the game as Pudsey move up to fifth at the expense of JB Celtic and Beeston, who are placed sixth and seventh, respectively.

Yeadon Veterans increased the gap between the top four and the rest of the league after they hammered AFC Horsforth 7-1.

The goals came from across the team for Yeadon, with Jez Kemp, Scott Firth, Danny Richardson, Mickey Wardman, Steve Middleton all getting on the scored while Craig Nicholls bagged a brace too. Daniel Petty got the only goal for Horsforth who remain in eighth place.

In Division One, there were no slip-ups from the leaders Horsforth Fairweather as they strolled to a 3-1 victory away to Daisy.

A Rob Wilson double and a Jamie Francis single were enough for the win and to extend their lead at the top to nine points.

New Parnaby moved up to fourth as they defeated Manston Wanderers 2-0.

Jamie Davies and Jonny Sands each scored for New Parnaby who were relatively unthreatened by their opponents.

Swillington Welfare Sunday edged out Old Ball FC 3-2 in a game that was effectively a six-pointer.

A brace from Nathan Fry was not enough for Old Ball to get a share of the spoils, as a double from Kyle Andrew Addison-Foster and a strike from Kieran Turnbull snatched all three points for Swillington.

Engine eased to a 3-1 win away to bottom club Oulton Athletic.

Richard Bean scored for the hosts, who are yet to get any points this season, but goals from Aaron Myers, Mark Maloney and Ashley Gales got the win for Engine.

The results at the bottom mean that Engine and Swillington have put a small amount of daylight between themselves and the teams in the relegation zone.

Old Ball and Manston are level on 15 points apiece at the foot of the table.
