FOUR-star Paul Cuthbertson inspired Station Whites to Sunday’s 6-4 success at home to Richmond Hill in the Terry Pears Premier.

Cuthbertson helped himself to a four-goal haul for the title-chasing hosts who were also helped by Terry Palmer and Si Doughty adding a goal apiece.

Liam Evans, Benn Dyer, Nathan Swires and Ashley Hubbard all struck for Richmond Hill but they remain one of three teams without a point in the Leeds Sunday League’s top flight.

Station Whites are one of three teams to have won all three league games in the division which is led by Chapeltown Fforde Grene in light of Sunday’s 6-3 win at home to winless Halfway House.

Tesfa Walcott bagged a hat-trick for Fforde whose Kane Blair, Reuel Pryce and Harrison Brazier all added one goal each.

Two goals from John Prowse and one from Marcus Liburd led the House fight.

Halfway FC also made it three wins out of three with a 3-1 triumph at home to early basement boys Harehills FC.

Lee Longbottom’s double proved decisive in support of a home Scott Goodall strike.

Ricky Smith was the solitary Harehills scorer.

In the division’s only other top flight game played, mid-table sides East End Park and visiting KKS Zubry shared a 2-2 draw.

Andy Lightowler and Liam Attwood got the East end Park goals with Robert Hough, and Raph Chisolm netting for KKS.

Four games were played in the Championship on Sunday with Western Juniors enjoying a 7-3 win in mid-table battle at home to West Leeds Wortley.

Jordan Rossendale netted a hat-trick for Western whose Arran Spinks added a brace to support goals from Jamie Simpson and Kingsley Abodo.

Two strikes from Mark Ferguson and one from Shaun Gills failed to save the visitors.

Leaders Seacroft AFC made it nine points out of nine with a 3-2 victory at second bottom Corpus Christi.

The game featured five different goalscorers with Stefan Kennedy, Macauley Milburn and Danny Hewitt netting the all important goals for Seacroft.

Marksmen Phil Jarvis and Reece Calvert led the Corpus Christi charge.

Two points behind Seacroft in second are Badri who went in 402 at third-bottom Bramley Villagers.

Chris Fletcher’s double was in vain for the hosts.

A further three points back in third are East Leeds Celtic who triumphed 6-1 at rock bottom New Farnley.

Stephen Johnson led the way with a hat-trick for the visitors whose Gavin Frost, Connor Green and Daniel Sutcliffe netted one goal each.

There are three games scheduled to take place in the Championship this coming Sunday with East Leeds Celtic travelling to sixth-placed Bramley Villagers where a win could put the visitors second.

Fifth plays seventh as West Leeds Wortley welcome Corpus Christi while New Farnley will be looking for the first points of the season at fourth-placed Western Juniors.

In the Terry Pears Premier, leaders Chapeltown Fforde Grene will be out to maintain their perfect start at fourth-placed East End Park.

Second-placed Station Whites will be firm favourites at home to bottom club Harehills WMC while fifth platys sixth as KKS Zubry welcome Richmond Hill.

Sunday also sees the first round of West Riding County FA Sunday Cup and Trophy games taking place.
