HALTON Moor boss Danny Walsh again highlighted the growing stature of Seacroft WMC after his side suffered a 2-1 exit in the Leeds & District FA Sunday Senior Cup second round.

Seacroft are managed by Glenroy Hylton and Les Nelson – who used to play for Walsh at Moor – and his former team-mate returned to haunt on Sunday.

A Scott Jones brace outweighed an away Mark Whittam effort for Moor and Walsh said: “It was a good clean game on Sunday that could have gone either way. We pushed right until the last minute for that second goal to take it to extra time but no luck. Like I have said before, Seacroft are a good side at the moment.”

Hope Inn Whites continued their perfect start to the season with Sunday’s 4-2 success at AFC Horsforth Old Boys.

Ste Mallory proved the difference in netting a hat-trick, added to by an Adam Barlow strike as Hope Inn, who are second in the Leeds Combination Jubilee Premier, made it five wins out of five from all competitions.

Leeds City Rovers moved through in another all Jubilee Premier tie at home to Horsforth Fairweather after a 5-3 victory on penalties following a 2-2 draw after extra-time.

Dave Scott and Jamie Francis notched for Horsforth in the stalemate but goals from Nick Wilson and Jordan Dimuka took Rovers to the shoot out that they ultimately won. Combination Premier high-flyers JB Celtic eased through with a 5-0 win at home to divisional rivals Queenswood Crusaders thanks to a Matty Dalton brace plus a goal each from Luke Hunter, Philip Coates and Andy Campbell.

Colton scraped through with a 6-5 success on penalties at plucky Combination bottom tier side Halfway after a 3-3 draw. Goals from, Scott Goodall, Adam Pullford and Dale Hague led the Halfway fight but efforts from Mikey O’Brien, Ben Clark and Ben Jones set Colton up for progression.

But Combination Premier leaders Main Line Social came a cropper in a 2-1 loss at Leeds Sunday League side Harehills WMC.

A Krystian Jaworski brace ensured victory.

Hare & Hounds had no answers at home to the Chapeltown Fforde Grene’s Leeds Sunday League side who romped through 7-0.

Dave Allanson continuing his recent scoring spree with another four of Fforde goals with Silvan Mboma, Kieron Goodison and Kenan Bailey also netting for the winners.

In the Barkston Ash District FA JB Plows Cup, Bardsey were awarded an away walkover against Garforth Villa.
