FARSLEY Twenty Tens took another step towards the Terry Pears Premier with Sunday’s 3-0 success at basement boys New Farnley.

As cup action dominated, the fixture was the weekend’s only league game played and goals from Sam Brown, Craig Stevenson and Craig Naylor sealed a straight-forward victory.

Farsley are now on the verge of promotion given that they are 11 points clear of third-placed Corpus Christi - who - like Twenty Tens - have five games remaining.

As far as the title race goes, Farsley are five points clear of second-placed Halfway who have played two games more.

Also in the mix are fourth-placed East Leeds who are 12 points behind Twenty Tens but with two games in hand.

Away from league matters, four Barrass Cup ties were played on Sunday with hosts Original Oak and Carnegie sharing a 2-2 draw in Group A.

Billy Holland was at the double for Carnegie but goals from Darryll Whitaker and Jon Hart ensured that the hosts bagged a point.

Carnegie, among the favourites to win the Terry Pears Premier, have five points from their first three games and sit in second.

Oak are in third with four points from their opening two fixtures.

The group is led by East End Park who were 2-1 winners at home to Halfway House (Stanningley) who have now lost three out of three.

Liam Attwood and Terry Tomlinson hit home for Park who have seven points from four games with John Prowse consoling Halfway.

In Group B, Chapeltown Fforde Grene’s stuttering cup campaign continued as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to second-placed Chapel Street Whites.

Derelle Goodison struck for Fforde but a goal from Paul Cuthbertson gave Chapel Street a share of the spoils.

Terry Pears Premier big guns Fforde have just one point from three Group B games and sit in third.

Richmond Hill are runaway leaders of the group after Sunday’s 4-0 triumph at winless Harehills WMC.

Two goals from James Hardisty plus one each from Ashley Hubbard and David Newsome made it three Group B wins out of three.

Four games were staged om the Presidents Trophy with Group A’s top two Western Juniors and East Leeds Celtic sharing a 4-4 draw.

Hosts Western hit home through Danny Walker, Danny Lee, Danny Keenaghan and an own goal with Liam Sandford, Connor Green and Gary Smith among the scorers for Celtic.

In the same group, Acorn (Bramley) FC registered their first win with a 2-0 verdict at a Halfway side who have now lost two out of two.

Lee Whitaker and James Waite were the goal-getters.

In Group B, KKS Zubry bagged their first win of the competition with a 1-0 success at winless Corps Christi, Raph Chisholm bagged the only goal of the game from the penalty spot.

Group leaders East Leeds and visiting Water Into Beer shared a 1-1 draw.

Adam Kerrigan netted for East Leeds with Steve Kay doing the business for Water Into Beer.

Aimi Beresford bagged a decisive brace for Brighouse in the 3-2 win over Bolton Wanderers.
