24 FEB - CBC PREMIER - Pheasant and Stannington both held, but Redmires win - We head towards March with Wadsley Bridge Pheasant still holding sway at the top of the CBC Premier Division, but it’s only just. Pheasant had to work hard in their away game at Norton Sportsman and will be content as they came from behind to share the spoils in a 1-1 draw with their hosts. Sportsman took the lead when Sonny Wilson produced a superb cross and top scorer Brad Bowland (left) headed home. Bowland could have doubled the lead but shot over when well placed. Pheasant increased their intensity in the second half and equalised when Dylan Parrott hit home a long range screamer. Both sides tried for a winner but a draw was the winner in the end.

Pheasant’s lead is just one point after Redmires saw off Renishaw Rangers 6-2 in a game that hinged on a decision. Renishaw’s top scorer Robin Holmes gave them the lead but a Jon Wall (right) free-kick levelled matters but then came the game changer. Renishaw’s Levi Richmond saw red for two yellow cards and the home side capitalised with another strike from Wall, a Tom Whiting brace and one apiece from Jake Schofield and Danny Reet. Renishaw did have the last say in the game when left back Ryan Hancock smashed one in from distance; arrowing the ball into the top corner.

Still in touch, and with a game in hand on the top two, are Stannington Village but they had to settle for a 1-1 draw with Oughtibridge WM. It was a tight and close contest as the scoreline suggests. The deadlock was broken with twenty minutes left when Lewis Dickinson picked up the ball on the edge of the penalty area and crashed home an unstoppable effort into net. The Oughtibridge equaliser came about when a corner wasn’t dealt with by the visiting defence and Chas Tunnard made no mistake. A draw was a fair result but Oughtibridge were warmed by a man of the match performance from Kurtis Turner who was making his debut after spending eight weeks injured.

Chapeltown RBL’s relegation from the top flight was confirmed after a 6-0 home loss to Woodseats Club. Matt White and Liam Bryan gave Club the lead against their valiant hosts, who never gave up in the game, and further strikes from Leesley, Banks, Darlow plus an own goal made up the tally. In the final CBC Premier Division game of the day, Handsworth Old Crown gave their relegation battle a good shot in the arm and moved out of the bottom three with a 3-2 home success against Wickersley. Liam Greenfield scored twice and Tom Crosby (left) stepped up from his goalkeeping position to smash home a penalty in shades of Jose Luis Chilavert to get them the win whilst Drew Houghton and Ben Thornton netted for the defeated visitors.

24 FEB  - DIVISION 1 - Forum back on track to send Cotts out of the top three -  In Division One’s game of the day, Forum took a massive step towards top flight promotion with a 3-1 win over Cotts: a result that sent the visitors tumbling out of the automatic promotion slots. Matty Ord and Antony Holmes sandwiched a Michael Blythen effort with both sides keen to get one over on the other. The game was secured for Forum in the final minute when Cotts gambled on a late corner which broke down and Callum Mawbey fired home in the clinching strike on the counter attack.

Royal Earl moved into second place when they overcame a Southey Social side, minus their top scorers Ryan Damms and John Mellor, 4-2. Steve Brammer opened the scoring for Earl and Alex Rippon’s (right) first of the morning doubled the lead before emergency forward Scott Ellis reduced the arrears. Olly Beaumont restored the two goal margin, and Southey’s goalkeeper Callum Jones kept his side in it before Rippon made it four. Harry Davison pulled a second goal back for Southey but Earl managed to see it home.

Crookes are third after a crushing 8-0 win at Norton Oaks A who now appear to be relegation bother. Liam Cartledge notched a hat-trick for the rampant visitors who also found the net thanks to a Peter Smith brace and additional efforts from Chris Tunstall, Phil Parkin and an own goal. The other Oaks side picked up a valuable point from their trip to Ranch after a 2-2 draw, Alex Cowlishaw and Alex Mosley netted for Ranch whilst Will Carlisle and Jeremiah Donnelly were on target for Oaks B.

The threat of relegation had lingered over Civil Sports A too but their hopes took a massive boost with a superb 3-1 home win over the ever improved Cobden View, Player-Manager Gary Eades opened the scoring with a half volley which trickled home in slow motion and Thomas Bamford then doubled the lead. Adam Beresford pulled one back for Cobden but Civil secured the win when Stacy Sharif netted on his first appearance of the season.

24 FEB  - DIVISION 2 - Boynton beat leaders Sixs as Whites go top - We have new leaders in Division Two in the shape of Mosborough Whites after they inflicted a comprehensive 12-0 defeat over bottom placed Civil Sports B. Luke Walker (right) led the scorecharts with four whilst Chris Howard bagged a treble of his own. Further goals came from Jack Bennett, Julian Lawrence, Lewis Bennett, Danny Howson and Kane Fowler whilst Whites keeper Curtis Congreve skied a penalty in the last minute. Whites are top because previous leaders Sheffield Sixs slipped to a 3-1 home loss to fellow promotion challengers Boynton Sports who were fired to glory by a Jake Ballinger double and one from Ricardo Stewart whilst Matt Coyle drilled home Sixs’ only goal from the edge of the area with the home side 2-0 down at the time.

Free scoring Colley lived up that description as they rode away from Wadsley Horse and Jockey with a 8-3 away win. Danny Parker (left) helped himself to a hat trick for the visitors whilst Billy Thorley and Ragen Dempsey added doubles of their own with Kieron Goff completing the rout against Jockey who responded through a Lewis Smith brace and one from George Scott. Meanwhile Woodhouse Juniors remain on the outskirts of the promotion battle as Joe Bland’s sole strike settled their tense encounter with Beighton Magpies.

Woodseats Chantrey picked up three points in the final game of the day as they edged past the visiting Brinsworth Phoenix by the odd goal in five. A neat flick from Spencer Russell set up Luke Simmonds for the game’s opening goal but Phoenix responded to lead through Nathan Darwent’s header and an spectacular overhead kick from Daniel Commander. It stayed that way until the final ten minutes when Chantrey grabbed two late goals. Substitute Kyle Thomson was the architect of it all, first of all playing a through ball for Simmonds to score his and Chantrey’s second before crossing for Charlie Hawkins who provided a cool finish for the match winning goal.

17 FEB 2019 - R.I.P. Garry Wright - The League was very saddened to hear about the loss of the former player, manager and coach, Garry Wright after he finally lost his battle against cancer. Garry had played for Stannington Community in two League Cup Finals, scoring 5 times, before netting the winner for Bass Stones in their 1994 League Cup Final victory over Westfield at Bramall Lane. He managed Telecom Sports to promotion to the Premier Division for the first time, but latterley helped with the coaching at Stannington Village. His enthusiasm was infectous and even though he wanted to win every game, he always wanted his teams to do so playing good football. He will be sorely missed by all his family and friends.

17 FEB - CBC PREMIER - Pheasant shot down by Stannington, whilst Woodseats win to send Chapeltown down - CBC Premier Division leaders Wadsley Bridge Pheasant could have gone six points clear had they won at Stannington Village, however the hosts breathed new life into their title aspirations with a 3-2 success. Pheasant opened the scoring thanks to another superb free-kick from the talismanic Jordan Livett but Stannington were level when Lewis Dickinson collected a Joe Barker long throw to spin and smash an unstoppable effort into the roof of the net. Two goals in the second half swung the pendulum Village’s way; the first coming when Dean Jepson (right) got his head onto an inch perfect Lee Johnstone cross and then Arnie Grayson taking advantage of some hesitation by Pheasant to head number three. Aaron Statham reduced the arrears to one goal with ten minutes to go but despite increased pressure, Pheasant couldn’t get back on terms.

Oughtibridge WM could have closed in on the top three had they won at Woodseats Club but they were left empty handed as Club won by the odd goal in five. Matt White gave Club the lead after just five minutes but an excellent effort from Chas Tunnard and a superb solo effort by Wilson Coupe had David Hudson’s men ahead by the half hour mark. Liam Bryan (left) got Club back on level terms as half time approached and then the same player produced a moment of magic to win the game for Club in the second half.

Two early goals proved to be more than enough for Wickersley as they inflicted another loss on Intake Old Boys. Great work from Brad Carroll saw him set up Jordan Thomas for an easy tap in to open the scoring, and then Kris Lee-Green made it two with a superb solo effort. Wickersley could have been out of sight by half time had Drew Houghton and Thomas not missed one on one situations but held sway when called upon defensively in a scrappy second half for three crucial points.

Renishaw Rangers still harbour faint hopes that they can avoid the drop, and those hopes took an improvement when they dished out a 6-0 defeat to a Handsworth Old Crown side still only just outside the relegation spots. James Savage (right) lived up to his surname as he savaged the visitors with a four goal haul whilst top scorer Robin Holmes added another from distance. Joe Glover celebrated his return to the side after a three month absence when he netted following brilliant link up play with Connor Shirley. Handsworth were never at the races and had to thank Tom Crosby’s efforts in goal to prevent Renishaw running up double figures.

17 FEB  - DIVISION 1 - Forum falls to Crookes, but Cotts and Earl make no mistake -  The big game in Division One saw Crookes take the honours with a 3-2 success over leaders Forum, just the visitors third loss in seventeen league games. Daniel Flynn (left) scored twice and a Matt Cowen penalty made up Crookes’ tally with Matty Ord and Josh Gibson responding for Forum. That loss for Forum enabled Cotts to reduce the gap to single figures as they overcame Southey Social 3-0 at Concord. Harry Shaw netted the first after quarter of an hour with a good finish from the outside of his foot, and Jon Dolan grabbed the others after coming on as a substitute; his first a well taken solo effort when he chased down the Southey keeper before dispossessing him and netting from twenty yards out and then getting the important touch on a driven cross for the clincher.

Royal Earl have four games in hand on Forum and took three more important points as they rounded up Ranch 3-0. Sam Smith was on target for the opener before a fluke effort from Jono Williams, netted from inside his own half; doubled the advantage. Earl then had to thank their goalkeeper Callum Fielding for a couple of important saves as Ranch pressed but secured their win in the dying embers of the game thanks to substitute Alex Rippon.

The two Oaks side suffered differing fortunes in their games. Cobden View issued a seriously understrength Oaks A a bit of hammering as they recorded a 9-0 success with Ben Bell (right) going goal crazy as he notched six of them. Calum McCrury, Sam Porter and Joe Taylor also were on the scoresheet as Cobden remain in fifth place. Oaks B had a productive morning though as they defeated Mosborough Reds 6-2, a result that confirms Reds’ relegation. Reds led twice through their captain Luke Newman and a Scott Williams header but they were undone by a brace from Nathan Davies and additional goals by Jack Peake, Chris Briddon, Conor Rogers and an own goal.

17 FEB  - DIVISION 2 - Sixs gain revenge over Colley as the top three pull clear - After suffering a surprise loss last week to Colley, and their lead at the top of Division Two, Sheffield Sixs enacted the best response back by defeating the same opponents. A volley from Brad Howe put them ahead after half an hour, and then Howe’s second of the game plus one from one from Danny Barnsley gave them a 3-0 away win. Mosborough Whites stay level on points with Sixs after a hard fought game with a Cadbury side seriously understrength and featuring manager Dan Robertson at right-back in his first eleven-a-side game for a number of seasons. Jack Bennett and Jordan Meadows put them ahead and they took the points despite Jacob Beech pulling one back in second half added time.

Boynton Sports remain in contention with a comprehensive 9-0 win over bottom placed Civil Sports B. Marcus Gordon and Marc Peacock both scored twice whilst John Heritage, Danny Lonsdale, Jermaine Modeste, Curtis Priday and Ben Jordan also found the back of Civil’s net. Another player hitting the goal trail was Beighton Magpies’ Dale Featherstone (left) as he bagged a hat-trick, one from the penalty spot, as the home side rode away from Wadsley Horse and Jockey 4-2. Lewis Hunt added Magpies fourth; with George Scott and Kurtis Westerman netting for the visitors.

Woodseats Chantrey took a lead midway through the second half of an uneventful game against hosts Brinsworth Phoenix. The goal came when Brad Gray produced a through ball executed to perfection and Luke Simmonds slotted it past the Phoenix custodian. However, Phoenix grabbed three welcomed points in the final five minutes thanks to Joe Statham. Statham equalising with an absolute screamer and then taking advantage of slack Chantrey defending to head home in the final minute.

10 FEB - CBC PREMIER - Intake hold up champs, but Pheasant and Redmires make no mistake - Stannington Village’s hopes of retaining the title took another bump in the road despite producing an incredible comeback to share the points and eight goals with hosts Intake Old Boys. The Old Boys had a superb start to the game with four goals in the first fifteen minutes with Harry Chamberlain (right) twice, Elliot Coles and Mark West all on target: Chamberlain’s first being a superb effort from fully fifty yards as he netted from the centre circle. However two Lewis Dickinson penalties halved the deficit by half time and gave Village hope. Shaun Flynn reduced the gap to one goal when he tapped home from close range and then the visitors levelled matters on the day when a quick break down the left was turned into his own net by an Intake defender.

Leaders Wadsley Bridge Pheasant had star midfielder Jordan Livett (left) to thank as he scored both their goals in a 2-1 success at Oughtibridge WM. Livett opened the scoring when he converted a superb free kick from the edge of the area after he had been brought down in full flight, and then added a second from the penalty spot after once more teasing the home defence Dan Broomhead pulled one back for the home side and despite putting on the pressure, Pheasant held on to remain three points clear.

Staying in touch and chasing them down are Redmires as they recorded an all-important away win of their own at a Norton Sportsman side on the fringes of the top three. Tom Whiting (right) added another hat-trick to his collection whilst Andy Bath and Jake Gamban also were on target for Dave Knaggs’ team who had Jonathan Wall at his creative best. Sportsman’s sole response came from former Renishaw Rangers striker Montelle Kamara who netted from distance.

Wickersley’s relegation fight took a good turn when they clinically dispatched bottom placed Chapeltown RBL 7-0 away from home. Adam Daughtrey, Jordan Thomas and Brad Carroll all helped themselves to doubles, whilst Kris Lee-Green added the other for a comprehensive win and leave Legion a long way from the safety margin.

In the final CBC Premier game of the day, Handsworth Old Crown also did themselves a good turn as they deepened Renishaw Rangers relegation fears with a 5-2 home win. Renishaw started well and led 2-0 thanks to strikes from captain Lee Walker and top scorer Robin Holmes who scored with an unstoppable effort from distance. Tom Crosby (left) started the comeback and that was the catalyst as Handsworth added more goals from Russell Hobson, Kieran Gallagher, Ben Shackshaft and Liam Greenfield.

10 FEB  - DIVISION 1 - Top four all win as promotion race hots up -  Leaders Forum’s Division One title charge continued unabated as two Matty Ord strikes proved to be enough to see off visitors Civil Sports A 2-0, a result which deepens the away side’s relegation fears and leave them facing the possibility of a second successive divisional drop. Cotts remain second after seeing off Cobden View 3-1 thanks to Theo Wilson (right) hitting a brace and Luke Kingswood who clinched the win with a goal in the last ten minutes after Ben Bell had put Cobden within one goal.

Royal Earl enhanced their own promotion bid with a comprehensive 12-1 win over basement side Mosborough Reds who look certain to be back in Division One next season. Tom Nolan headed the scoring with five individual strikes whilst Olly Beaumont and Billy Wright both added doubles. Richard Tootle, Tom Furniss and Spencer Goff also found the back of the Reds’ net with Reds sole consolation coming from Josh Smith who netted his own rebound after the Earl keeper had saved his initial effort from the penalty spot. Crookes stayed in touch too after rounding up Ranch 8-0 with Matt Cowen scoring a hat-trick, two from Joel Purkiss and a goal apiece from Mike Murphy, Andy Parkin and Max Pemberton.

10 FEB  - DIVISION 2 - Colley put the skids under leaders Sixs, allowing both Whites and Boyton to close the gap - Sheffield Sixs suffered just their second league defeat of the season as Colley improved their own promotion hopes with a 2-1 away win. Liam Davies gave Sixs an early lead from twelve yards when he converted from the penalty spot but Colley were back on parity when Danny Parker (left) chipped the Sixs keeper from twenty yards. Both teams pushed for a winner and it was the visitors who grabbed it with twenty minutes to go when Kieran Goff rocketed one into the top corner from distance.

Level on points with Sixs now are Mosborough Whites after they won an entertaining game against Woodhouse Juniors; 6-4. Luke Walker bagged a couple for Whites whilst Jack Waddle, Kingsley Lewin, Julian Lawrence and an own goal made up the home side’s tally with a Harry Broadbent double, Chris Radford and an own goal tallying for Woodhouse.

In a game switched because of a strong wind blowing the roof off the school, Boynton’s own promotion charge continued with a 6-2 win over Beighton Magpies. Top scorer Jake Ballinger (right) netted another three to his burgeoning goal tally whilst former Stannington Village defender Marc Peacock weighed in with two of his own and Curtis Priday made it six. A youthful Magpies side gave it their all and were rewarded with goals from Lee Hackett and Dale Featherstone.

Wadsley Horse & Jockey got past the winning post first in their match at Civil Sports B with their 3-1 success still leaving Civil without a win this season. Sam Civil, Lewis Smith and Joe Hall found the net with Ryan Haywood netting Civil’s sole effort at Green Lane. Meanwhile, Woodseats Chantrey took the points in the last game of the day with a 2-1 away triumph at Shakey thanks to Luke Simmonds and a late clincher from Luke Glaves, Brad Leeming pulled one back for Shakey in the final throes but Chantrey managed to get over the line for a crucial three points.

3 FEB - CBC PREMIER - All CBC Premier games postponed - The CBC Premier suffered a complete white out as every fixture was postponed. One game did actually start, that being Redmires’ home encounter with Intake Old Boys. However, the game only made it to the twenty minute mark before proceedings were brought to a halt by referee Tony Clubb with the teams scoreless.

3 FEB  - DIVISION 1 - Earl into the top three and Cobden consolidate 5th place -  Just two games were completed in the middle division, and Royal Earl move up to third with a 2-0 success at Southey Social. Both goals came in the second half after a very even first half. Mike Towey (left) broke the deadlock with a fine individual effort, and after both teams had chances to score, Earl secured the win with a Conor Chapell free-kick five minutes from time. The sides were appreciative of match official Paul Cooper who they concurred: had an excellent game.

The other Division One game to beat the weather saw a home win for Cobden View as they overcame bottom placed Mosborough Reds 4-0; and keeps them on the fringes of the promotion race. Cobden were always comfortable and two goals in the final seven minutes of the first half from Callum McCrury and Sam Porter gave them an advantage they would not relinquish. Two further strikes either side of the hour mark, clinched the win, with Ralph Clarkson and McCrury’s second of the morning hitting the back of net.

3 FEB  - DIVISION 2 - Lawrence and Walker trebles see Whites close up on leaders -. Only one match survived in Division Two and Mosborough Whites reduced the inactive Sheffield Sixs’ lead at the top to just three points with a 9-2 home success over visiting Wadsley Horse and Jockey. Julian Lawrence and Luke Walker both scored hat-tricks whilst a brace from Callum Congreave and one from Lewis Russell ensured a good day at the office for the Whites, Jockey’s replies came from their top scorer Reece James.

2 FEB - League Twentytwo Cup Semi-Final draw - The draw for the semi-finals of the Blades Super Draw League Twentytwo Cup was made at Bramall Lane today by The Sheffield Star's Blades reporter James Shields (right) and well known journalist Alan Biggs (left) and it saw last seasons beaten finilists and only CBC Premier side remaining, Handsworth Old Crown, drawn out against Division One leaders Forum.
