WEST LEEDS ARMLEY upset the applecart against visiting Kirkstall Crusaders to record a 4-2 triumph and cause one of two surprises in the Leeds Sunday League President’s Trophy.
Sunday’s Leeds grassroots football programme was decimated by the weather but there was no stopping Armley against thriving visitors Kirkstall.
Crusaders have won four games out of four in the Leeds Sunday League Championship but were chinned by their third-placed hosts who struck through Aaron Robinson, Dion Robinson, Danny Hayhirst and Owen Green.
Ash Thompson and Andy Halliday notched what proved to be consolation goals for Crusaders who joined East Leeds Celtic in being the victims of a surprise.
Easts are second in the Leeds Sunday League Championship but had no answers to their sixth-placed visitors Halfway House Bramley for whom Kurtis Heyes and Andy Fields netted a goal each.
In the sole game played in the Leeds Sunday League Hope Members Cup, Premier Division highflyers East End Park WMC were 4-0 winners at home to the Championship’s second bottom side Western Juniors.
Terry Tomlinson bagged a brace supported by strikes from Andy Lightowler and leading scorer Paul Sykes.
Only one game was played in the Wharfedale Triangle League but it provided an 11-goal thriller as Ilkley Dynamo scraped a 6-5 victory at FC Cuedoes. The triumph put Dynamo top of the table but all of the teams below them have a game in hand with Keighley Town just one point behind and with four games in hand.
First plays third this coming weekend with Ilkley at home to Yeadon Veterans who are six points off top spot but with five games in hand.
Three games survived in the Wakefield Sunday League with Henry Boons edging a 3-2 success at home to fellow mid-table outfit Netherton WMC in Premiership Two.
In Championship One, Kettlethorpe moved top with a 6-1 cruise at bottom-club Sandal Galaxy who remain without a point from their opening seven games. Galaxy visit third-bottom Wakefield Athletic A this coming weekend.
And there was a surprise in Championship Two on Sunday as second-placed AFC Bar Street blew the chance to go top as they were undone 6-2 at sixth-placed Thatched House.
The result will have been music to the ears of Hemsworth Highfield Reserves who stay a point clear of second-placed Bar Street with both teams having now played nine games.
Only one game went ahead in the Claro League with Bardsey 5-4 victors at AFC Horsforth Old Boys in a basement scrap in Division Two.
