Have your say

Three matches took place in the Championship, with leaders Farsley Twenty Tens powering on at the top following a 3-1 triumph at KKS Zubry.

On target for the winners were Michael Huddart, Craig Naylor and Davie Jones.

It extended Farsley’s lead at the summit to eight points, with a game in hand on second-placed Halfway, who were in cup action at the weekend.

Corpus Christi, in third position, had a productive day at the office in an overwhelming 5-0 away-day success at New Farnley.

Phil Jarvis took pride of place for Corpus with a well-taken treble and further goals from Liam Jordan and Shaun Phelan sealed the visitors’ impressive nap hand.

Christi have a game in hand on second-placed Halfway and are currently in arrears by three points.

East Leeds Celtic are fourth following a 2-1 verdict at Water Into Beer and are three points adrift of Christi, having played the same amount of games.

Water Into Beer reside fourth from bottom in the lower mid-table section of the table.

In the top flight, meanwhile, Chapeltown Fforde Grene slumped to just their third league defeat of the campaign in a 2-1 loss at third-placed East End Park.

Marksmen for East End in the Terry Pears Premier clash were Terry Tomlinson and Hayden Bowler.

Kaine Blair found the back of the net for frontrunners Fforde.

Fforde led second-placed Carnegie by just a solitary point in the table, but Carnegie look the strong favourites to lift silverware, having four matches in hand on the first-placed side.

Cup action took centre stage elsewhere and it was a rewarding day for Terry Pears Premier outfit Richmond Hill, who triumphed by the odd goal in five in a 3-2 win at Championship outfit East Leeds AFC too book their place in the Hope Members Cup semi-finals.

Ashley Hubbard fired a brace for Richmond and Nathan Swires added to their tally, with Swires on the spot to strike home a late penalty to book their passage into the last four.

Adam Kerrigan’s double was in vain for East Leeds.

Richmond now face Harehills WMC in what promises to be an intriguing semi-final on March 23 at Skelton Road.

Action in the Barrass Trophy saw Carnegie chop Original Oak down to size in a 4-1 verdict with Billy Holland seeing his name in lights after plundering a treble.

Also on the scoresheet for Carnegie was Mark Knowles.

Carnegie head their Group A table with an unbeaten record from their six outings so far, which have yielded four wins and remain on target for league and cup silverware this season.

A consolation arrived from Oak’s Jon Hart.

Elsewhere, a six-goal thriller saw Harehills play out an entertaining 3-3 draw with Chapel Street Whites in Group B.

Marksmen for Harehills were John Allanson, Phil Allanson and David Allanson, with Whites replying in kind courtesy of strikes from Terry Cuthbertson, Terry Palmer and Chris Naylor.

The points ensured Whites remain at the head of the pack in their four-team group, with Harehills afforded solace in their first point of the Group B campaign thus far.

One tie took place in the Presidents Trophy, with Halfway FC recording a 3-1 home verdict against Western Juniors, who suffered their first trophy reverse this term.

Dale Hague was on the money with a double for Halfway, with Lee Robinson adding to their tally.

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