Chapeltown Fforde Grene warmed up for this weekend’s FA Sunday Cup clash with a 3-1 over AFC Hanover Arms that sent them top of the Jubilee Premier.

Goals from Anthony Williamson, Ashton Campbell and Dom Blair undid a strike from Grant Jackson in the only top-flight game to get the go-ahead.

In the sole Premier Division game played, leaders Pudsey Liberal Club scraped a 1-0 victory against Beeston St Anthony’s. Rick Simpson scored the winner as Pudsey extended their lead to 12 points.

In Division One, Waggon Athletic’s promotion campaign gained serious momentum after a convincing 4-1 away win at Old Ball. Danny Walker inspired his side with all four goals.

Waggon, now in third place, have games in hand on the top two.

New Parnaby moved sixth after they beat Colton 2-0. Kyle Swithenbank got both of the goals for New Parnaby.

In Division Two the only fixture to take place was a huge one between Commercial and Pendas Arms.

The stakes were high, with the winner of the match guaranteed top-spot and it was Commercial who came out on top in a thrilling 4-3 result.

Paul Baker and Jordan Stocks goals for Pendas were not enough to grab any points, with Jordan Webb, Gavin Johnstone, Carl Mannin and Ben Rennison scoring for the new league leaders.

In Division Three there was a 0-0 stalemate between Leodis United and Bedford Arms Wakefield.

South Leeds Independent edged past Amaranth Twenty 13 3-2. Matty Powell and Macauley Riley scored for the visitors but a brace from Danny Bray and a goal from Joe Childerson were enough for South Leeds.

In the Leeds Sunday League the majority of games still went ahead in the muddy conditions.

In the Championship, leaders Halfway FC and second-placed visitors Farsley Twenty Tens shared a 2-2 draw.

Halfway led twice through Lee Robinson and Scott Goodall but Farsley levelled for the second time through an Alex Edwards own goal.

Farsley then had the opportunity to bag an 87th-minute winner when Matthew Lund was fouled for a penalty but skipper Danny Fisher’s spot kick was brilliantly saved by man of the match Paul Jackson.

In the Barrass Trophy, East End Park surprised everybody after they drew 1-1 with Carnegie FC. Ryan Gill scored for Carnegie but Liam Attwood ensured the game ended level.

Chapel Street Whites emerged 2-1 winners in a tight battle with Harehills Working Mens Club.

Chapeltown Fforde Grene’s poor start to the competition continued after going down at home 4-1 against Richmond Hill.

Tinique Fishley’s goal for Chapeltown was in vein as Richmond were inspired by a Joel Hutchinson hat-trick and a James Hardisty goal.

In the Presidents Trophy, Western Juniors hammered Acorn 7-1. Phil Marshall’s goal was insignificant as braces from Danny Walker and Danny Lee for Juniors were complimented by singles from Merv Kayij, Eddy Lee and Clovio Azie.

East Leeds Celtic blitzed New Farnley 9-1, led by a Gary Smith treble. Gavin Frost added a brace with Stephen Johnson, Joshua Fisher and Liam Sandford also among the scorers. Lee Hirst bagged a consolation for Farnley.

Elsewhere, East Leeds AFC enjoyed a 2-0 beating of Corpus Christi.

Just two games survived in the Leeds Sunday Alliance League with leaders Commercial HQ edging out sixth-placed visitors Bramley Amateurs 5-4.

Eighth-placed West Leeds Wortley also scraped a 4-3 win at home to third-bottom Bojangles.
