Wigton moor hosted Alwoodley in a see saw 3-3 game on Saturday in the Premier Division of the Yorkshire Amateur League, writes Ahmed Essof.

Leroy Watson gave Wigton the lead on the 10th minute mark, but 15 minutes later Dino Mulavdic levelled the scores. Jamie Kilner gave Alwoodley the lead just before the break when he converted after Wigton failed to clear a corner.

The match came to life in the 70th minute when Jamie Sheard levelled the scores from the penalty spot.

Wigton thought they had sealed the points when Danny Lyons scored in the 90th minute, but Alwoodley did not give up and were duly rewarded two minutes in to stoppage time when Graham Shaw snatched the equaliser.

Leeds Medics and Dentists beat Rothwell 3-0 at home to move seventh. Sammy Bzeu, Sam Hinchcliffe and Alex Howard each bagged a goal for the Medics.

Farsley Celtic Juniors missed the opportunity to go top when they were held to a goalless draw at home to fifth-placed Trinity & All Saints on the 4G surface at Bradford Academy. The visitors were saved by the woodwork and some great goalkeeping by the Trinity man of the match Ryan Groves.

Rodillian retained top spot in the Championship with a 4-0 victory at Leeds Medics Reserves. Jack Kanyama and Charlie Holt scored a goal in each half as Rodillian moved a point clear at the top of the table, having played three more games than second-place Farnley Sports.

Old Modernians returned from their fixture away to Calverley with a 2-0 victory. A brace from Reece Onidiran was enough for Modernians who now move level on points with Calverley and only behind on goal difference.

Shire Academics went down at home to Thornesians 3-1. Joe Cook scored twice for the visitors whose Chris Wilde also found the net. Alberto Martinez scored his first ever goal for Shire, but it was mere consolation.

Collingham Juniors remain unbeaten in Division One after a 2-1 win at home to St Bedes. Mark Collingham and Richard Metcalfe scored for Collingham, whilst Anthony Garner was on the scoresheet for St Bedes.

Colton Athletic remain in second spot on the ladder following their 3-0 home win over Sandal Wanderers. Jordan Thackery, Rob Ashworth and an own goal proved enough for Colton in securing all three points.

Garforth Rangers went down 5-2 at home to Leeds Independent. Phil Clarke bagged a brace for the home side, but his efforts proved futile as two goals to Matthew Waring and one apiece for Marlon Richards, Damon Jenkinson and Danny Bell gave Independents all three points.

In Division Two, Martin Ross was in fine goal scoring form as he netted five times in an 11-1 home win for Morley Town Reserves against Middleton Park.

James Hawley scored four whilst Steve Chew and Ben Dixon each picked up a goal.

Josh Teale was on target for Middleton Park.

Huddersfield Amateurs Reserves kept up their good form with a 7-1 thrashing at home to Old Batelians Reserves. Ben Hallit and Dean Parker scored two each, whilst Gaz Jowett, Si Bick and Sam Halstead each scored a goal.

Adam Blackburn found the only goal for Batelians.

Huddersfield YMCA were 4-1 winners at home to St Bedes Reserves. Si Davies scored two second half goals for Huddersfield whose Frank Odion and James Hodgson also found the net.

Dan O’Sullivan scored for Bedes in the second half as well, but it was a mere consolation.

Methley United went down 5-1 at home to Wheelwright Old Boys. Rob Ives bagged a brace as Johnny Beverley and Dan Stevens also got on the scoresheet for Wheelwright. Jordan Leggard was on target for Methley.
