17 DEC – SUNDAY CUP – Eckington and Stannington go through to the last 8 – Eckington came from behind to beat Rotherham Premier AFC Lord Nelson 3-1 to go through the County FA Sunday Cup quarter finals for the first time. Lord Nelson had the weather conditions in their favour in the first half and took the lead from a corner after 30 minutes, but Eckington quickly hit back when Rob Stinger showed great strength to hold off a defender and score from close range. Eckington had the conditions in their favour in the second half and took the lead when Cameron Evans fastened onto a long ball and fired into the bottom corner. They sealed victory in the final minute when Joel Cousins scored from the edge of the area. Eckington will now entertain Rotherham's FC Ship Inn in the quarter finals on 14 Jan

They are joined by last season’s losing finalists Stannington Village after they won the all-Blades Super Draw affair at Oughtibridge WM 6-2. Oscar Seth fired into the top corner to give Stannington the lead and it was doubled when Danny Smith laid it back for Charlie Hobson to score from 20 yards. It was 3-0 when a short corner routine finished with Seb Robbemond heading into the bottom corner. Luke Needham pulled one back for Oughtibridge before the break, but Stannington quickly took control in the second half when Ben Cook’s cross allowed Luca DeFalco to score at the second attempt. Harley Scholey then set Jon Wall up for Stannington’s fifth and their sixth came when Wall’s pass allowed DeFalco to spin in the box before taking it round the keeper to score. Brendon Drew scored a second consolation for Oughtibridge late on. Stannington will enetrtain Mexborough's Westville in the quarter finals

Despite taking the lead through Richard Tootle, Royal Earl went out 3-1 to Mexborough’s Queens United.

Crookes will now entertain Wakefield’s Dale Club in the quarter finals on 21 Jan.

Division 1 leaders Boynton Sports won their all-Blades Super Draw tie with Division 2 Cotts 3-1. Alastair Holland gave Boynton the lead which was soon doubled by a Richie Atkins strike. Cotts pulled one back through veteran strike Michael Blythen, but the tie was settled by a Jake Bonnett goal for Boynton. Boynton are scheduled to be at home in the quarter finals, but their opponents aren’t yet known

 Another all-Blades Super Draw tie Jubilee Rangers beat fellow Division 1 side AFC Dronfield on penalties after the sides drew 1-1. After a goalless first half, Jubilee took the lead when Adam Darton turned home the opener. It looked like that might be enough, but last season’s finalists Dronfield fought back and took the game to a penalty shoot-out with a Josh Sell goal. Jubilee scored their first four penalties and after Dronfield had already missed one, Jubilee keeper james Gamble saved one to put Jubilee through. Jubilee will travel to either Barnsley's Williams Bar Cudworth or Doncaster's Scawthorpe Herons.

Brunsmeer went out 4-0 to Barnsley’s Darfield Queen Vic and, despite a Reece James strike, Wadsley FC also went out, 2-1 to Barnsley’s AFC Pogmoor.

17 DEC – CBC PREMIER – Chapeltown back on top – The day’s only CBC Premier game saw Chapeltown RBL go back to the top with a 2-0 victory at Wadsley Bridge Pheasant. With strong winds and an uneven pitch meant it wasn’t pleasant viewing with neither side able to get the ball down and the first half stayed goalless. The second half saw Chapeltown maintain their perfect away record with full back Jacob Walkland opening the scoring at the back post after good work and cross from Jed Phillips (right). Legion then got on top and doubled the lead as Phillips chipped the keeper from outside the area. After that Lewis Fox and the RBL back four defended well and made sure of a clean sheet as well as 3 points and top spot.

17 DEC – DIVISION 1 – South back in the promotion hunt, but Southey undone by Reds – Sheffield South got back into the promotion hunt with a 6-2 home win over Mosborough Lions as Jack price made it a debut to remember with a hat-trick, with Luke Howson adding two more and their sixth from Alex Masterson. Tom Davis and Billy Gillott netted for Lions, but it was South’s day.

Southey Social's hopes took a dive with a 1-0 defeat at a Mosborough Reds unbeaten at home and who have conceded just two goals in four home games. Southey had the benefit of a strong wind at their backs in the first half, but they couldn’t capitalise on it. Southey looked the more likely to score after the break, but the Reds keeper made a good save from Daniel Jenkinson and Ryan Witney had a shot blocked. With time running out Reds forced a corner and their big defender Jak Hotchin rose highest to win it for his side.

17 DEC – DIVISION 2 – Wisewood hit back to open up a gap at the top - The day’s only Division Two game played saw leaders AFC Wisewood come back from two down to beat Royal Oak 3-2 and open up a four point gap at the top. A Callum Sugden penalty and a Chay Hill strike gave Royal Oak a two goal lead at the break, but Wisewood hit back in the second half and pulled one back through Matt Civil, before equalising with an Oscar Cam strike. The turnaround was completed when Civil netted his second with a free kick.

10 DEC – SUNDAY CUP – Woodman bow out, but the weather puts the rest on hold – The torrential rain over the previous few days put paid to all but one of the Sunday Cup ties involving our teams. The one that was played saw Woodman FC go out 4-0 at FC Ship Inn, currently joint leaders of the Rotherham Premier Division. All the postponed ties will probably be trying again next weekend, which will inevitably lead to postponement of some league fixtures.

10 DEC – CBC PREMIER – All CBC Premier games postponed – The weather beat the two CBC Premier games due to be played.

10 DEC – DIVISION 1 – Boynton win the battle of the top two – The Division One leaders Boynton Sports won 2-1 at a Southey Social that started the day second. A tight first half ended goalless and the second half continued in the same way until Smajl Bytyci beat the Southey keeper to the cross and the ball went into the net off his back. Boynton doubled their advantage when a cross to the back post was headed back across goal to be bundled in by Alastair Holland. Southey got back into the game when they were awarded a penalty, put away by Jamie Hopkins and although Todd Guest went close to an equaliser, Boynton held on.

Now second is Jubilee Rangers after they came from behind to beat WH Crookes 2-1.Oliver McQuillin gave Crookes a half time lead, but Jubilee hit back strongly after the break and levelled when Adam Darton volleyed home. Further pressure followed and with time almost up, Liam Hill-Simmons produced a cool finish to win it for Jubilee.

Up to third is AFC Dronfield after a narrow 1-0 victory over Sheaf House. The winner came in the first half when Joe Taylor scored with a free-kick, but it wasn’t plain-sailing as Sheaf made it hard for Dronfield.

10 DEC – DIVISION 2 – Doubles all round as Wisewood go top – Oscar Cam, Kai Overend and Declan Pinhorn all scored twice as AFC Wisewood won 6-1 at Winter Green to go top of Division Two. Just a single goal separated the teams at half-time, but a blistering second half saw Wisewood romp home, with Brandon Wazirali’s goal being Winter Green’s only consolation.

That win was enough as previous leaders Brunsmeer were beaten 4-3 in a thriller at third place Cueball. Brunsmeer were first to go in front with a Charlie Clark strike, but it was cancelled out by a Matt Cadman goal for Cueball. Brunsmeer went back in front with a Gaz Murdoch goal.  Travis Hodgson drew Cueball level a second time and he netted his second to put Cueball in front and Blake Wightman extended the lead. Brunsmeer did their best to get back into it and Brad Rains struck their third with five minutes remaining, but Cueball held on.

Fourth place Cotts had to settle for a point in an entertaining 3-3 draw at Wadsley FC. Chris Salt put Cotts ahead, but Wadsley levelled with a Jack Sanderson strike and they took the lead on the stroke of half-time with a Callum North goal. After the break, Salt hit his second to level for Cotts, but Wadsley went back in front with a Zak Cutts strike. It didn’t last long though as Cotts levelled again with an Andrew Swift goal, but that proved to be the last goal of the game.

5 DEC – Southey's 'Wolf' takes the title Southey Social's Keanen "The Wolf" Wainwright secured his first professional title when he went over to Malta and beat the home fighter to become the Commonwealth Silver light weight champion in just his 13 Professional fight.He had his opponent down twice in round 4 before securing a unanimous points win to bring home the Title.
