CORPUS Christi steam-rollered their way into the President’s Trophy second round with Sunday’s 11-0 hammering of visiting West Leeds Wortley.

Cup games took centre stage at the weekend with Championship sides on President’s Trophy duty and the Terry Pears Premier teams in action in the Barrass Cup.

Both competitions operate an initial group stage with the top two teams from each group going through to the knockout stages.

And Corpus look a good bet to make the last four of the President’s Trophy after Sunday’s goal-glut.

Corpus, who sit fourth in the Leeds Sunday League Championship, saw Steven Kay, Ian Bruce and Liam Jordan all notch braces in their Group B opener.

A goal apiece was added by Shaun Phelan, Phil Jarvis, Stuart Scales, Danniel Pang and Reece Callum as Wortley, who sit second bottom in the Championship, were blown away.

Alson in Group B, Championship leaders Seacroft AFC sealed a 2-1 success at home to title rivals Badri.

Goals from Stefan Kennedy and James Cowlam saw Seacroft to victory with Jymel Black responding for Badri.

But in Group A, Western Juniors, who sit third in the Championship, suffered a surprise 3-0 loss at home to their division’s third-bottom side East Leeds Celtic.

Gary Smith, Dale Venables and Connor Green all netted to put Celtic in the next round.

In Sunday’s other Group A fixture, the Championship’s bottom side New Farnley failed in their bid for some welcome Presidents’ Trophy joy as they were ousted 3-1 by visiting Bramley Villagers.

Chris Fletcher, Mikey Hunter and Dean Wood were on target for Bramley.

In the Barrass Cup, Terry Pears Premier Division leaders Chapeltown Fforde Grene were held to a 2-2 draw in their Group A opener at home to Harehills WMC.

Harehills are third-bottom of the Premier with just one point from four league games but held Fforde as Ricky Smith and David Silverwood both netted.

Jason Stapelton and Tesfa Walton struck for big guns Chapeltown but it was not enough for victory.

Similarly, Station Whites who sit second in the top flight drew 1-1 at second-bottom Halfway House (Stanningley) in the other Group A clash.

Phil Allanson was the Halfway scorer with Paul Cuthbertson getting the Station goal.

In Group B, there was a big surprise at Halfway FC where struggling Richmond Hill secured a 2-2 draw.

Richmond Hill sit bottom of the Terry Pears Premier with four losses out of four but gained a share of the spoils thanks to strikes from Ashley Hubbard and Bradley Johnson.

Dale Hague and Lee Longbottom struck for Halfway for whom progress was halted after a perfect league start featuring three wins out of three.

The only Barrass Cup victory of the weekend came for East End Park who triumphed 4-2 at KKS Zubry, also in Group B.

Paul Sykes was at the double for East End whose Liam Attwood and Hayden Bowler added a goal each.

Strikes from Raph Chisolm and Aiden Lewis were in vain for KKS who sit fifth in the Premier – one place and three points behind East End.

With District Cup games taking place next weekend, league action does not resume until Saturday, October 26 when leaders Chapeltown Fforde Grene will travel to Halfway House (Stanningley).
