Chapeltown Fforde Grene continued their perfect start to the season with a 3-1 away win at Halfway House in the Leeds Sunday Football League Premiership.

Goals from Leon Gentles with a crucial double and Rual Pryce sent the league leaders home with all three points.

The free-scoring league leaders have now notched an incredible 27 goals in just five games.

The success of the Leeds Sunday League leaders also capped a fine weekend for Fforde whose first team blasted East End Park WMC 20-0 in the Leeds and District Sunday Challenge Cup.

Station Whites FC, meanwhile, ensured they didn’t fall too far behind the Leeds Sunday League leaders with an impressive 4-3 win at KKS Zubry.

A Terry Palmer strike and a hat-trick from Paul Cuthbertson was enough for Station Whites to stay second.

They stay two points behind Chapeltown having played the same amount of games.

Elsewhere, Harehills WMC FC registered their first win of the season with a shock 4-2 victory over third place Halfway FC.

This was Halfway’s first loss of the season with two strikes from Lee Longbottom insufficient as a brilliant David Silverwood brace plus strikes from Rob Smith and Daniel Marcinkowski inspired Harehills.

Those three points lifted Harehills four points clear of the bottom two in sixth place.

They will be hoping they can continue the momentum this week when they host Chapeltown.

Richmond Hill and Halfway House (Stanningley) prop up the table and both sides are without a point from their first four games.

The two teams without a point both face tricky fixtures this coming weekend.

Halfway House make the trip to third placed Halfway FC whilst Richmond Hill host KKS Zubry.

Meanwhile in the Championship, second-placed Badri FC heaped more misery on bottom of the league New Farnley with a ruthless display ending in a 6-1 away victory.

Strikes from Kyle Jeffery and Andy Brewitt who each grabbed two, plus Josh Moon and Jack Humphreys made sure Badri were taking home all three points. Luke Henderson grabbed a goal for struggling Farnley, who are yet to pick up a single point.

Their goal difference stands at minus 18 after five losses from five games.

Leaders Seacroft AFC’s flawless start to the campaign continued with a 3-0 win over West Leeds Wortley.

Macauley Milburn grabbed himself a brace and Danny Borom also struck for the early pace setters.

Seacroft lead Badri by two points with both teams having played two games.

Western Juniors fell 8-0 at home to third-placed Bramley Villagers FC.

Farrell Hunt grabbed a goal and Danny Robinson scored two but it was the day of Oliver Carter who knocked in a staggering five goals to sink Western.

Bramley are a point behind Badri but having played two games more

Finally, East Leeds Celtic triumphed 3-2 away to Corpus Christi.

Gavin Frost picked up a fantastic brace and Adam Wood also struck for Celtic, cancelling out efforts from Phil Jarvis and Jonathan Meredith.

With Seacroft not in action this Sunday, a win for Badri FC at home to Western Juniors FC would take them to the Championship summit.

New Farnley have a home tie against second bottom side Corpus Christi.
