CHAMPIONS Chapeltown Fforde Grene are still seeking their first win of the season after a 3-1 success for early leaders Belle Isle WMC made it three wins from three.

James Kitson was at the double for the hosts for whom Liam McBurney also netted as Belle Isle moved three points clear at the top of the table. A Jordan Berry strike failed to save Fforde who are in the unusual position of sitting second bottom with just one point from their first three games.

Hope Inn Whites also have a 100 per cent record after Sunday’s 2-0 success at Pudsey Liberal Club. Danni Maw and Daniel Stimpson bagged a goal each for the visitors.

And HT Sports moved fourth as a 4-0 win at Horsforth Fairweather gave them their first victory of the season. Barry Franklin notched a double for HT, with Sam Ackroyd and Sam Hewitt adding a goal each.

The clash between Seacroft WMC and Leeds City Rovers was one of three games postponed due to a lack of a match official.

Main Line Social made it four wins out of four games in the Premier with a 3-1 triumph at AFC Bramley.

JB Celtic made it three wins out of three after with a 2-0 verdict at a Queenswood Rangers side who now drop to third. JB’s Richard Banks and Jimmy Childs netted a goal each.

Whitkirk Wanderers are fourth after edging a 4-3 cracker at home to second bottom Hare & Hounds. A Taylor Starkey double plus a goal each from Jordan Booth and Ash Hoddle was enough to see the hosts to victory.

Badri are fifth after a 2-0 win at home to basement club Garforth Villa, achieved through a brace from Derek Ross, while New Parnaby gained their first success of the season through a 4-0 win at third-bottom Colton. A Jamie Davies hat-trick and Joe Wood strike sent the visitors up to seventh.

South Leeds Independent hosted a 4-0 Sanford Cup win over Division One leaders KKS Zubry.

New Pudsey took advantage by moving second on goal difference in Division One with a 3-2 win at home to Oulton Athletic. An Ashley Forber brace and James Allan strike outweighed away efforts from Danny Rose and Tom Lee. Leodis United slipped to third as an Aaron Macey strike failed to prevent a 2-1 loss at home to Swillington Welfare.

And Chapel Allerton edged a 6-5 barnstormer at Original Oak. Home doubles from Jon Hart and John Rabone plus an own goal were ultimately in vain against an away brace from Graeme Downie plus a goal each from Jason Watt and Phil Cross.

Kippax Band Club moved fifth with a 5-3 win at home to Garforth Sports and Social.
