BADRI caused the surprise of the round in the Sanford Cup with a 6-4 success at higher league hosts Horsforth Fairweather.

Badri are sixth in the Premier but chinned their Jubilee Premier hosts with a Joshi Moon hat-trick, a Jonathan Daniel brace and a Ryan Brough strike.

A Rob Wilson double plus a goal each from Steve Skillern and Dave Howarth were not enough for Horsforth who are bottom of the top flight after five defeats from five games.

Every other top-flight team went through with HT Sports bouncing back from their County Sunday Cup exit in style with an 11-0 hammering of lower league visitors FC Broadway.

Joe Dixon bagged a hat-trick for HT, supported by braces from Jay Davis and Chris Howarth plus strikes from Ash Crowther, Sam Ackroyd, Paul Wills and an own goal.

Jubilee Premier leaders Pudsey Liberal Club squeezed through with a 3-2 success at Leodis United. Matthew Robinson and Lee McKenzie netted for the hosts but goals from Fidel Mhlolo, Rob Nicholson and Jack Kitson kept Pudsey rolling.

Second-placed Hope Inn Whites continued their perfect start to the season with an 8-0 blitzing of visiting Oulton Athletic. A Stephen Mallory hat-trick and Ryan Houghton double was supported by goals from Charlie Stevens, Danny Maw and Josh Mclean.

And Halton Moor eased through with a 6-2 triumph at home to Whitkirk Wanderers.

Roy Stammer’s hat-trick was backed up by a goal each from Paulie Graham, Martin Dixon and Dave Stead as a Jordan Walker double proved in vain for the visitors.

Seacroft WMC romped through to the next round with an 8-2 cruise at JB Celtic. Daniel King and Jimmy Child struck for JB but Seacroft eased through thanks to a Mark Hill hat-trick, a Ryan Robinson brace and a goal each from Scott Jones, Ryan Harwood and Ollie Maude.

Leeds City Rovers’ trip to Chapel Allerton was postponed.

New Parnaby won their all Premier Division encounter at home to Queenswood Crusaders 5-3. Kyle Swithenbank’s brace plus a goal each from Chris Storey, Dean Bartle and Richard Wheelhouse brought up the home nap hand in the face of away responses from Danny Redfearn with a double and James Burgess.

Bottom tier side Barwick Stallions are through to the LUTY Cup third round after a 2-1 succes at divisional rivals Millshaw Park Rangers. Doubles from Gary Crossley and Kieran Dunn outweighed a home Chris Ward strike.

Bramley Town needed extra time before ousting hosts Halfway 4-2 with braces from Kris Robson and Karras Spaven against Halfway goals from Nick Sheldon and Scott Goodall. Thriving Beechwood Sundays won 3-1 at Brick with strikes from Liam Gales, Craig McDonagh and Lincoln Mabs.

A Paul Cuthbertson brace saw East Leeds AFC to a 2-1 triumph at Yorkshire Black Rose whose Joe Smith netted while a Liam Atwood treble and Phil Jarvis strike saw Corpus Christi oblige 4-2 at Bedford Arms Wakefield.

Braces from Jamie Halsall and Brendan Mullen gave Royal Park Leeds 4-1 progression at Acorn (Bramley).

But strikes from Jack Pennington and Matt Whiteley were in vain for FC Horsforth Saints who lose 6-2 at Commercial HQ.


All-conquering Main Line Social’s 100 per cent start to the Premier Division season continued this weekend with a 12-0 thrashing of Hare and Hounds, writes Oliver Roby.

Adam Fowler crashed home four goals alongside a hat-trick for Bradley Francis-White, while Carl Feehan, Tom Clarke, Ash Williamson, Shane Thompson and Joe Hill all got in on the act with a goal apiece in the Bramley side’s seventh-successive league win.

In Division One, it was Amarath Sundays who stole the show with a stunning 7-0 away win at KKS Zubry. Dave Turner proved to be the star of the show with five goals, while Ben Wilkinson and Kallum Long added extra gloss to the scoreline.

Also in the third tier, Mark Owen, Paul Wilson and Peter Gibbons got the goals as Kippax Band Club picked up a comfortable 3-0 home win against Original Oak, as Ben Wood scored twice in Garforth Sports and Social’s impressive 5-1 win at New Pudsey, James Hazelgrave, Paul Hustwitt and Jake Thompson with the other goals in response to James Allan’s opener.

Eight goals were scored in Division Two’s only fixture as AFC Travellers took a point from their trip to Waterintobeer in a 4-4 draw. Yosef Arjomandkhan bagged a hat-trick for the hosts on top of Milan Stegl’s effort, but four goals in 17 second-half minutes, through Daniel Flesher, Joe Clough, Jordan Coop and James Wardle, rescued a point for Travellers.

In Division Three, Rik Woolin (2) and Donal Buggy got the goals as FC West Leeds Guiseley Reserves drew 3-3 at home to Republica Internationale, while Rayhaan Pervaiz got the consolation in AFC Elford’s 5-1 home defeat to Wortley Knights.
