BOSS Lee Connor is hoping he’s got St John Fisher Old Boys sussed ahead of his side’s biggest game of the season in Friday night’s West Riding FA County Sunday Cup semi-final at County HQ (kick-off 7.30pm).
HT could still win the Leeds Combination League but champions Chapeltown Fforde Grene would be rated favourites and Sports are already out of the District Cup, FA Sunday Cup and Sanford Cup.
It means the County could be their best hope of glory with Belle Isle WMC awaiting in the final after shocking Ferrybridge Progressive in last Friday’s first semi final. Fisher are going great guns themselves in the Heavy Woollen League which they lead by three points.
Connor said: “It’s a big game and we are looking forward to it. The County Cup is the one that we want. I used to play with one of their players – James Riordan – at Ashton United so I know a bit about them and they beat us in the County a few years ago.”
Tomorrow night sees Sky Bet bid for glory in the final of the West Riding FA County Sunday Trophy. Leeds-based Sky Bet, who are top of Division One of the Wharfedale Triangle League, take on holders Wellington Westgate at Woodlesford. Sky Bet boss Joe Cundall said: “We would enter the game as under dogs but we will go out and give our best as we always do. Granted a little bit of luck we might even sneak a result.”
Leodis United bagged the Leeds And District FA Sunday Jubilee Cup with Thursday night’s 2-0 defeat of lower division Millshaw Park Rangers at Bracken Edge.
Millshaw were undone by a bullet header from Jordan Mudd plus a strike from Matthew Robinson.
Leodis boss Daniel Bond beamed: “I’m chuffed for the lads. They are a pain in the backside to look after but they deserve this. Credit to Millshaw, I massively under estimated them.”
Two days later, Ferrybridge Progressive’s chase for a superb six timer was ended as Belle Isle WMC caused a 3-0 surprise in Friday night’s West Riding County FA County Sunday Cup semi-final at Woodlesford.
Ferry are carrying all before them in the Castleford Sunday League and knocked out Chapeltown Fforde Grene en route to the semis. Progressive are set to join the Leeds Combination League next term but came unstuck against Belle Isle who are fifth in the Jubilee Premier. Chris Robertshaw, Chris Hovington and Joe O’Neill netted a goal each for Belle Isle.
Last night Chapeltown Fforde Grene beat Halton Moor 2-0 in the final of the Leeds And District FA Sunday Senior Cup saw at Throstle Nest.
