President’s Cup kings Seacroft Seals clinched the second third of a potential treble with Sunday’s 3-0 victory over Station Whites in the Leeds Sunday League Hope Cup final at Bracken Edge.

Danny Hewitt, Rennal Edwards and Keiran Goodison all netted for Seacroft who could now add the Championship title this weekend if winning at home to East Leeds Celtic though leaders Badri will win the crown regardless if they oblige at third-placed Corpus Christi.

A draw leaves Badri vulnerable but their destiny is in their own hands after last Tuesday’s 1-0 win at Seacroft. Badri were then awarded a home walkover against New Farnley on Sunday.

Terry Pears Premier Division champions Chapeltown Fforde Grene wrapped up their campaign with Sunday’s 3-3 draw at fourth-placed KKS Zubry.

Luke Sharry, Dan Sharry and Sylvan Mboma struck for Chappy but efforts from Aiden Lewis, Raf Chisolm and Ryan Lawson claimed Zubry a point.

Chappy’s title triumph caps a brilliant season for a club whose first team wrapped up the Leeds Combination League Jubilee Premier title with last Wednesday’s 1-1 draw at Belle Isle WMC, edging out HT Sports by a point.

Dom Blair gave Fforde a 57th-minute and while Belle Isle levelled just one minute later, Grene held out for the point that they needed.

Leeds YMCA clinched the Leeds Sunday Alliance League Premier Division title with Tuesday night’s 3-2 success at home to third-placed Halfway House Bramley.

YMCA then concluded their season with Saturday’s 5-2 triumph at third-bottom Seacroft Colts.

Second-placed Gascoigne ended with Tuesday’s 4-3 victory at seventh-placed Seacroft Colts Stallions while eighth-placed Northern Star went in 2-0 at fourth-bottom Republica Internationale the same night.

Castleford Sunday League Premier Division leaders Ferrybridge Progressive are through to the final of the Oakworth Open Cup after Sunday’s 4-1 triumph at Nags which was 1-1 at the interval.

Three goals in five second-half minutes booked a date with AFC Pontefract Sports or Fryston who face off this coming Sunday.

Josh Barratt was at the double for Ferry whose Danny Middleton and James Jollands added a goal each.

AFC Royal Oak sealed a second-place finish on the final day of the Division One season with a 4-2 triumph at fourth-placed Upton Wrangbrook.

Champions Railway Inn finished with a 2-1 success at sixth-placed AFC Cutsyke.

In the Wakefield Sunday League, second-placed Alverthorpe WMC warmed up for tomorrow night’s hosting of Premiership One leaders King George through Saturday’s 4-3 success at home to third-placed Hemsworth Miners Welfare. A point would bag King George the title with a game to spare.

Alverthorpe also obliged 5-2 at Shepherds Arms on Thursday evening, two days after King George had won 4-1 at New Sharlston Welfare. Arms were 2-0 victors at Wrenthorpe Rangers the same night.

Henry Boons clinched the Championship One title on the final day with a 3-0 victory over bottom club visitors Thatched House that left them level on points with second-placed Hemsworth Highfield but with a better goal difference.

Wakefield Athletic B sealed a second-place finish in Championship Two with a 3-1 win at champions Stanley United.

Danny Young hit an excellent hat-trick to take his tally to 40 goals for the season. Miners Arms must settle for third place at the end of their campaign despite a 3-2 win at Normanton.
