Main Line Social send clear signal to Leeds Combination League pacesetters

Only three games were played in last Sunday’s Jubilee Premier schedule with little change at either end of the table as a result.

Celler dwellers Seacroft WMC are not yet cut off from a number of fellow strugglers but Sunday’s 5-0 reverse at the hands of second-placed Main Line Social won’t have done their situation any good, particularly in terms of confidence.

That said, Social tend to trouble most teams in the top flight with the line-up they possess and are capable of finding the back of the net on a regular basis.

Sunday’s scorers were Joe Cryer (2), Josh Maskill and substitute John Mallinson (2).

Two-point leaders HT Sports made it to double figures against sixth-placed visitors, Colton FC.

William Roberts scored the consolation goal for Colton while Barrie Frankland netted four in reply on his own. Team-mate Ashley Crowther claimed a hat-trick with Jason Davis, Lee Turner and Steve Wales also finding the back of the net.

Goals from Sebastian Brownrigg, Jordan Deacey and Roman Neal steered Bardsey Sunday to a 3-0 victory over visiting Whitkirk Wanderers Sunday - one of two teams sitting just a point above Seacroft in the lower reaches of the table.

Scheduled fixtures for this coming Sunday include Bardsey Sunday at home to Leeds Met FC, Colton taking on Main Line Social, New Farnley CC travelling to HT Sports and Kirkstall Crusaders set to entertain Kippax Sundays.

In Division 1, New Inn New Inn FC were awarded a home walkover against Sheepscar while runaway leaders, Wykebeck Arms, powered farther ahead in the rankings with a 4-1 win over visiting Original Oak First.

Wykebeck have amassed 27 points and are 13 points clear of second-placed Hunslet Club Sundays First, though the leaders have played two more games.

In their determination not to simply hand the title to Wykebeck, Hunslet continued their hot streak of form with a 3-1 away win at second-bottom Oulton Athletic First.

Jordan Duncan, Stephen Hancock-Khan and Richard Wheelhouse tucked the goals away for Hunslet Club.

Three Division 1 games are scheduled for Sunday: Oulton Athletic First at Garden Gate, New Inn New Inn FC at home to Wykebeck Arms, and Sheepscar at home to Original Oak First.

Churwell chalked up a magnificent seven goals in their Division 2 hosting of West Yorkshire Falcons.

But fourth-placed Churwell did it the hard, being forced to come from 3-2 down at half-time before recording a 7-3 victory. George Bowles bagged a hat-trick, sub- Steve Greenwood chipped in with a brace, and Tom Myers and Connor Sikora added one apiece.

Greg Sergeant broke the deadlock on 19 minutes for sixth-placed hosts Pudsey Bojangles but within two minutes third-placed visitors East Leeds Celtic were level courtesy of a Jake Daniels’ equaliser.

Top guns FC Scholes were given a run for their money at second-bottom Western Juniors FC.

Paul Cuthbertson set the cat among the pigeons for the title chasers with a goal for Western Juniors.

In Division 3, Athletico Bramley were edged out 2-1 by visitors Swarcliffe FC First, while Bramley Amateurs were pipped 4-3 at home to Farnley Rangers. Bramley Lions, meanwhile, powered to a 3-1 win over visiting Energy while Leeds Alpha were awraded a ‘walkover’ against AFC Daisy.

Leeds Hyde Park FC were 5-2 victors over Crown & Anchor AFC, Little London FC shot down Northern Star First, 5-1, and Old Crooked Clock timed their goals to perfection to notch a 4-0 win over Headingley Rovers Firsts.
