26 FEB - League pays tribute to Jim - Before today's games the League's clubs paid tribute to the Sunday Imperial League's Jim Briggs after he passed away last weekend. Pictured right is Killamarsh Juniors and their opponents Oughtibridge WM with referee Ben Shirt-Clarkson.

19 FEB - CBC PREMIER - Taxis run into a Wall, but Civil give themselves a lifeline - It’s still as you were as the top three in the CBC Premier Division all won. Stannington Village still remain top of the pile after a 6-1 win at Brinsworth Whitehill. The game was over by half time as Village went in with a comprehensive 4-0 lead thanks to a brace from Adam Todd (left) and singles from Sean Flynn and defender Dan Green. Alex Torr maintained his scoring spree with the fifth and Piers Bond nabbed the sixth. Whitehill’s consolation goal came from Ross Johnson.

FC Handsworth Turf stay second after a tough home game with Norton Oaks “A” which they came away from with a 2-0 victory. Jordan Stocks gave Turf the lead with a set piece that went into the bottom corner and Russell Hobson doubled it with a shot that found the net via a Norton deflection. Stocks went close to adding a third and a long range effort from skipper David Haggerty was well saved by the Norton custodian. Norton battled well and were unlucky not to get on the scoresheet in the final minute but the shot hit the post.

Also not going away quietly are Redmires as they defeated City Taxis 5-1. The third placed side went into the break just one goal ahead but turned it up a notch to score four more past a depleted but hard working Taxis side. Jon Wall (right) was the main architect, scoring four times (including a penalty) and Jake Gamban scored the other whilst a Scott Westney penalty was Taxis sole reply.   Hallam gave their relegation fears a boost as a couple of long range rockets from Ali Omar and Jack Waddle were enough to see off Brinsworth Phoenix who were thankful to their keeper for again stopping a hatful. A deserved 2-0 win for the home team.

In the final CBC Premier game, Civil Sports “A” also gave themselves some hope of avoiding the drop by winning a 3-2 thriller at Green Lane against Woodhouse Angel. Andrzej Gordon-Hides and Zak Fleming-Wright gave the home side an early two goal lead but Mitch Husbands netted a penalty to reduce the arrears by the interval. Gareth Simons made it two apiece early in the second half but Gordon-Hides scored a crucial winner; rounding the keeper and slotting home with just five minutes left to play.

DIVISION 1 - Brad double sees Woodseats held by Legion, while Oughtibridge get Savaged  - Neither of the top two sides in Division One had a good day which enabled third placed Intake OB to close in marginally. Leaders Woodseats Club looked to be cruising at home to Chapeltown RBL as they raced into a 2-0 lead thanks to strikes by Nick Owen and Sam Read. However, the game turned when Club were reduced to ten men after an off the ball incident. Brad Beatson pulled one back for Legion at the start of the second half and then after some concerted pressure by the visitors, Beatson scored his and Legion’s second of the morning. Both teams could have won it after that but Legion keeper Ben Palmer produced a superb save in the final seconds to ensure his side had a point.

Second placed Oughtibridge WM had their hopes of promotion take a massive dent as they slipped to a 7-2 loss at Killamarsh Juniors. James Savage gave the home team the lead before goals from Charlie “Chaz” Tunnard and Matt Harrison put Dave Hudson’s side into the lead only for Robin Holmes to restore parity at half time. Killamarsh then went goal crazy, scoring five goals without reply. Callum Wood’s header gave them the lead and then further strikes from dčbutant Innocent Huly, Montelle Kamara, a second goal of the game from Savage and an incredible solo effort from centre half Jack Stanley completed the rout.

Intake OB are back within three points of Oughtibridge WM as they overcame a luckless Dale WMC 2-1. The visitors took the lead midway through the first half, Alex Rippon (left) steering the ball home from a right wing cross. Undaunted though, Dale worked hard and got their reward when a short corner routine involving Shannon Marshland and Mattie Moorwood saw the latter cross and Tom Kelsey headed home his first for the club. Stef Rankine had a penalty shout turned down and Intake got their winner with five left when the ball found the net via a certain part of Joe Lancashire’s body which he wouldn’t normally find the net with on a matchday. Sam Roberts and Fraser Ward both had late efforts cleared off the line but Intake held on.

Ecclesfield PL’s relegation fears look like become more reality as visitors AFC George boosted their own with a 4-2 away win. Michael Blythen and Damian Brown both scored twice for George who took their chances when presented; whilst the home side, who netted through Mark Groves and Ashley Matthews, bemoaned their profligacy in front of goal. Ranch are back in the bottom three after visitors Penistone Church recorded a deserved 7-2 away triumph. Tim Council (right) scored a hat-trick, Ranch added two own goals of their own whilst Lewis Dickenson and Sam Scrivens weighed in with singles; the home side netted their goals from Ross Lamkin and a late consolation from the spot by Josh Naylor.

DIVISION 2 - Theo has six appeal for Village, while Sportsman are just one win away from promotion  - Second Division leaders Norton Sportsman are looking good for promotion at the first time of asking as they recorded a 5-1 away win at Colley. Three goals in the opening quarter of an hour from James Archer (with two) and Jack Waymouth put them in the driving seat and further goals in the second half from Joe Muress and Danny Rogers ensured a nap hand whilst Joe Buxton’s penalty was just a mere consolation.

Climbing into second place are Woodhouse Village as they recorded a 7-0 home win over bottom placed Crookes and District who started the game with just eight players for the first ten minutes until two additional players turned up. Theo Wilson was Village’s star of the show as he scored an incredible six out of the seven whilst a close range effort from Sean Simmonite made up the scoring. Crookes, who put a great battle it has to be said, had a couple of chances from Matt Ward and a Richard Slattery header but Village were just too ruthless.

Norton Oaks “B” suffered another hammer blow their promotion hopes as they slipped to a fifth defeat on the bounce despite having the better of the chances against The Shakey. Shakey wrapped up the points thanks to goals from Billy Hilbert and Didici Sergiu as they look to get out of the bottom three. On a day when Steelers paid tribute to Secretary David Hambleton's wife Vanessa, a single Fraser Oxley strike five minutes from the interval was good enough to give them a 1-0 victory over Cadbury and move into sixth position in the table.

20 FEB - Sunday football loses one of its best  - The League was very saddened to hear that the Sunday Imperial League's Referees Secretary, Jim Briggs (right), had lost his fight against cancer late on Sunday evening. Jim had been a club secretary, referee and League administrator over very many years and was a constant source of encouragement to anyone involved in Sunday football and he will be very sadly missed by everyone who knew him. Our thoughts go to his family and friends at this sad time for them. All Blades Super Draw League clubs are asked to observe a minute's silence before their game this Sunday as a mark of respect for Jim.

19 FEB - CBC PREMIER - Taxis are Torr apart, but it's a doddle for Waddle to lift Hallam  - It’s a case of as you were at the top of the CBC Premier Division as Stannington Village, FC Handsworth Turf and Redmires all won. Stannington remain top of the pile after an Alex Torr (left) inspired performance saw them overcome bottom of the table City Taxis 6-1 at HSBC Sports Ground. Torr opened the scoring when Shaun Flynn sent him clear and he finished well with a shot into the bottom corner. He doubled the advantage when Joe Barker set up the chance and it was 3-0 at half time when Torr himself was the creator and Ben Cook powerfully headed it home. Julian Lawrence pulled one back for Taxis but Village scored three more times through that man Torr; taking him to twenty-six league goals for the season and 13 in his last five games.

FC Handsworth Turf remain in the hunt and a point behind after winning 3-0 away at Brinsworth Phoenix. The visitors were ahead when Greg Taylor headed home a Jordan Stocks and could have scored twice more in the first half but shots from Man of the Match James Leesley and Stocks crashed against the Phoenix bar. Leesley did double the lead when he side-footed home a Rikki Davidson cross and the points were secure when Ben Shackshaft’s cross was put into the home goal via David Sills’ knee. Turf could have a lot more but for home keeper Daniel Smith who kept the score respectable, whilst Nathan Darwent and Jack Hawkes went close for Phoenix – the former having an effort cleared off the line.

Redmires aren’t out of the race either as they recorded a 2-1 win against Wadsley Bridge Pheasant, with the winner coming from an unlikely source. Andy Bath gave them the lead when he latched onto a Jon Wall through ball, and then Wall himself missed a glorious chance to double it. Pheasant were back on terms by half time, Kane Doughty with the through ball and Luke Beedham with the cool finish. The winner came when a long ball created confusion in the away ranks and full back Jake Sawyer chipped the ball home for his first ever Redmires goal. However Pheasant weren’t out of it and it took a couple of good saves from the home custodian and some resilient defending, marshalled by Man of the Match Danny Turner (right), to secure the points.

Hallam took a massive step to survival as they came from behind twice to defeat Brinsworth Whitehill 5-2. Brinsworth took the lead after twenty minutes when Adam Daughtrey took advantage of a mistake in the home defence but Jack Waddle levelled to send the teams in 1-1 at half time, Ainsley Finney’s penalty put Whitehill 2-1 ahead before Waddle scored his second after a Whitehill defensive lapse to restore parity. Two goals from Hothefya Gadour then gave Hallam the lead they wouldn’t relinquish and Waddle completed his hat-trick when he reacted first to the rebound from his own header and made no mistake. Action from the game is below - pictures by Mick Moat.

DIVISION 1 - Oughtibridge give Church a lesson, while Burbeary treble puts Chapeltown back in the promotion race  - With Division One leaders Woodseats Club not in action, Oughtibridge WM had the chance to close the gap and they did that with a 2-0 home win over Penistone Church. Ollie Black (right) gave them a half time lead when he capitalised on a mistake by the Penistone goalkeeper and that lead was extended when Tom Fletcher headed the ball into the path of Callum Chambers who volleyed home in his first game for eight weeks. This result puts Dave Hudson’s men four points behind the leaders yet Club have a match in hand.

Southey Social’s recent good run of form ended as visitors Killamarsh Juniors left Concord with a 3-0 away win, a result that sees them leapfrog Southey into fourth on goal difference. Montelle Kamara scored the opener when he finished well into the bottom corner after being left one on one with the keeper. Jack Stanley nabbed the second with a close range finish and Joe Glover completed a good morning’s work for Killamarsh by scoring the third with a neat finish.

In the S35 derby, Chapeltown RBL completed the double over neighbours Ranch after overturning a half time deficit to win 4-3 thanks to an Ash Burbeary hat-trick. Burbeary (left) opened the scoring when an audacious cross field pass from Ryan Robinson picked him out and he made no mistake. Andy Varns doubled the lead with a chip but then Ranch rallied and were 3-2 to the good at half time thanks to a brace from Connor Brunt and one from Tom Hartley. Burbeary made it three apiece with a chip from fully thirty-five yards before scoring the winner with a strike from the edge of the box that went into the top corner. It was his seventh goal in three games.

Ranch’s day was made even more miserable as AFC George closed within a point of them and boosted their hopes of avoiding the drop as they came from behind to beat Dale WMC 4-1; a result that confirms the visitors relegation. Midfielder Sean Maloney gave Dale a twelfth minute lead when he steered his shot inside the near post. However a twenty minute Michael Blythen (right) hat-trick and a single strike from Garrett Scarlett put George into an advantage that they never let go of despite being reduced to ten men for a long period. Dale had chances when Sam Roberts curled a shot against the corner of post and bar but it stayed out and some good saves by the home keeper ensured the home side went off the pitch the happier.

DIVISION 2 - Chantrey are Bowled over by Sportsman, while Tim makes it the Pitts for Crookes  - All the top three sides in Division Two had wins as they look good for promotion. Norton Sportsman still lead the way after they overcame Woodseats Chantrey 6-1 on a heavy pitch. The home team led 5-0 at the interval thanks to a Brad Bowland treble and one each from Joe Muress and Chris Winters. Chantrey were much improved in the second half and got a consolation thanks to a superb lob from Jordan Sambrook but Josh Furniss scored Sportsman’s sixth to put it beyond any doubt whatsoever.

Waiting for Sportsman to slip up are free scoring Cobden View as they recorded a 9-2 win over Crookes and District. Former Loxley stalwart Tim Pitt (left) scored a hat trick whilst Rich Higgins, James Cottingham, Alex Butt, Lee Mansell, Adam Beresford and a Joe Taylor penalty made it nine; six of those nine coming in between the fiftieth and eighty-fiftieth minutes. Crookes battled valiantly; scoring goals from Brad Turner with a penalty that made it 1-1 at that moment, and Neil Oldrey who ghosted in at the far post for a further consolation two minutes from time.

Also keeping their interest going are Woodhouse Village as they won an important game at Norton Oaks “B”; 4-2. Perry Jackson’s gave Viillage the lead but it was Norton who went in at half time with the lead thanks to goals from James Borrill and Joe Lawson. Village looked in more trouble when they were reduced to ten men but they galvanised themselves to take the points thanks to a thirty yard screamer from skipper Lee Dolan, an amazing tenth goal of the season from centre back Greg Burgin (right) and with Norton pushing for a leveller; Kieren McKay’s long punt caught out the home team and Jackson finished well in the top corner from eighteen yards out.

Back into fourth are Dave Firth’s Civil Sports “B” team as they also came from a deficit to beat Colley 3-2. Civil took the lead thanks to Joe Taylor in the twentieth minute but the sides were level at the break when Steve Dickinson got onto the end of a Faisal Miladi flick for 1-1. A great free-kick from Josh Connor gave the visitors the lead but two goals in the final quarter of an hour from Ben Firth and Jed Phillips’ twenty-fourth league goal of the season gave Civil the three points.

12 FEB - CBC PREMIER - Ricky at the double as Turf close up on the leaders - In the only CBC Premier Division game that went ahead, second placed FC Handsworth Turf moved to within a point of leaders Stannington Village with a 3-1 home win over Brinsworth Whitehill. Rikki “Rocky” Davidson (left) opened the scoring for the home side but seconds later Whitehill levelled when a Jed McGowan cross sailed straight in. Ryan Smyth then missed a couple of chances as Whitehill pressed for the lead at half time. Turf regained the lead in the second half when skipper David Haggerty headed in a Tom Crosby free kick and Davidson’s second of the game secured the three points for Adam Johnson’s men. Handsworth have played a game more than the leaders but are certainly not out of the running as they chase their first ever CBC Premier title. For the visitors, this probably ends any hopes of a top three finish.

DIVISION 1 - Leaders tumble to Mellor winner for Southey  - There was only one game in Division One as well and Southey Social continued their improvement and boosted their promotion hopes with a 3-2 win over leaders Woodseats Club. Liam Bryan gave the visitors the lead but Matthew Betts levelled matters for Southey. Southey extended their lead thanks to an own goal and one from John Mellor (right), yet despite Keith Cronin pulling one back, Club could not find an equaliser and fell to only their second league loss of the season.

DIVISION 2 - Sambrook treble puts the skids under Oaks, while Buxton and Phillips trebles see Colley and Civil draw - With the top three all losing out to the weather, the chasing pack failed to take advantage and all dropped points in the two games that were completed. Norton Oaks “B” had their hopes of a top three spot hindered by a Jordan Sambrook inspired Woodseats Chantrey as the home side recorded by all accounts, a fully deserved 4-3 win. Nasa Meah gave Norton the lead in the twenty-fifth minute when he broke the offside trap and rounded the Chantrey keeper to score. Sambrook equalised with his first of the game ten minutes later and it stayed that way until half time. Brad Gray gave Chantrey the lead ten minutes after the interval with a precision took spot kick and Sambrook then extended it with a superb lob from all of thirty yards. Chris Pigott and Hamza El Yougo pulled Oaks back level and it looked to be a certain draw until that man Sambrook completed a superb hat trick with a volley into the far corner with seconds left.

There were goals a plenty too in the other game between Colley and Civil Sports “B” as the teams shook hands on a 4-4 draw at the end. Josh Buxton had the home side two goals to the good inside the first ten minutes but with the wind the favour Civil led 3-2 at the interval thanks to another hat-trick from the Division’s top scorer Jed Phillips which took him to twenty-three for the season. Buxton completed his own hat-trick a couple of minutes after the restart only for Joe Taylor to put Civil 4-3 ahead after a counter attack but Steve Dickinson restored parity once more with the eighth goal of the game. Both teams then pushed for the winner but were unable to breach each other’s backline and it ended level which doesn’t help either side’s promotion hopes one iota. In the other match Cadbury and Cobden View did start but after 25 minutes, the referee decided conditions were unplayable and called a halt to proceedings with the score 0-0 at the time.

4 FEB - CBC PREMIER - Civil Torr-n by Stannington to go clear at the top - Alex Torr (left) made it eight goals in four games to help Stannington Village defeat Civil Sports A to go four points clear at the top of the CBC Premier. That result saw Civil slip to next to bottom as Brinsworth Phoenix climbed above them with victory at bottom club City Taxis. Redmires kept their title challenge going with a comfortable victory over Woodhouse Angel, but Brinsworth Whitehill's title chances look to be over after defeat at Wadsley Bridge Pheasant and Norton Oaks A's hopes also look to have gone after they were held by Hallam.

Could it be Stannington Village’s fourth CBC Premier title in five seasons? Well it could be as they went four points clear of second placed FC Handsworth Turf after a 3-1 home win over relegation threatened Civil Sports “A”. The hosts took the lead after half an hour when Alex Torr crossed from the left and it was Ben Cook who rose above the Civil defence to plant a header into the net. They added a second when Shaun Flynn’s corner kick found its way through and Torr had the task of tucking away the loose ball. Civil then had a chance to reduce the arrears from the penalty spot but Gary Eades was denied by a superb one handed save from Nathan Ryan in the home goal. Skipper Lee Johnstone set up Torr for his second and Village’s third but Civil got a consolation when Gavin Wills crossed and Eades converted with a towering header.

That result was to send Civil into the bottom two as Brinsworth Phoenix overcame City Taxis 3-0 at HSBC in the bottom of the table scrap. City were up against after just quarter of an hour when Jason Hopwood was sent off but never gave in. Phoenix took the lead in the second half when captain Jordan Pearce threaded the ball through and Daniel Commander slotted it past the Taxis goalkeeper. Commander extended it to 2-0 after good link up play from Matt Winfrow and Brad Hardy set him up. Taxis pressed but found Kieran Osbourne impregnable in the visiting goal and the points were secured when the hard working graft of Liam Brookfield saw him finish a flowing move with a well-executed lob over the keeper from an acute angle.

Redmires continued their push for a top two finish, they lie two points behind FC Turf with a couple of games in hand, after a 4-0 win over Woodhouse Angel at Tapton School. Jake Gamban opened the scoring (first picture below) after Jon Wall had created the chance for him before George Rudd doubled it after player-manager Dave Knaggs had the initial shot saved. Conal Jacklin made it three, going through one-on-one, after a great flick on from Andy Bath and Wall himself scored the final goal of the morning with one of his trademark long range free-kicks. Action from the game is below - pictures by Mick Moat.

Wadsley Bridge Pheasant took a huge step towards safety as they overcame fourth placed Brinsworth Whitehill 2-0. Danny Barnsley opened the scoring for Pheasant when he tapped home a Luke Beedham cross and it was Beedham who scored the second and crucial goal when he lashed home after Dylan Parrott’s chip had undone the away defence. Whitehill got into some good positions but found Pheasant’s defence not swaying whilst the home side could have had a few more if it wasn’t for some excellent goalkeeping by the Whitehill custodian.

In the final CBC Premier game of the day, Hallam and Norton Oaks “A” were forced to share the spoils after a 1-1 draw. After a goalless first half Hothefya Gadour gave the home side the lead when he caught Oaks defender Nick Glossop dawdling on the ball, dispossessed him, and then cut inside to drill a low finish under the keeper. Coel Fulton thought he had equalised but his celebrations were cut short when the referee adjudged there had been a foul in the build-up. Norton got their equaliser when Danny Reet played in Younes Mekhalfia and he slid the ball into the far corner (the last picture below). Neither team could find a winner so the teams shook hands on a draw which many reflected was a fair result. Action from the game is below.

DIVISION 1 - Goals galore as Woodseats given a scare by Dale - The five Division One games averaged over eight goals per game, including nine in leaders Woodseats Club's narrow victory over bottom club Dale WMC. John Mellor hit a hat-trick as Southey Social's improvement continued with victory in another nine goal thriller against Ecclesfield Players Lounge, while Chapeltown RBL had eight different scorers as they eased their relegation fears with victory over Killamarsh Juniors. Eight goals came as Penistone Church got their title bid back on track with victory at AFC George, while just four came in second place Oughtibridge WM's victory over Ranch.

Division One leaders Woodseats Club had Chris Lees (right) to thank as they edged a nine goal thriller with neighbours Dale WMC. The home side seemed to be cruising after just twenty minutes as they went into a 3-0 lead thanks to Liam Bryan, Nick Owen and an own goal but after a change of tactics, Dale got back into it thanks to a Jake Whistlecraft brace and a penalty from Jake Schofield. Sam Read then restored Club’s lead only for Schofield to bend home a free kick for 4-4 minutes after the restart. Lees scored the ninth goal of an incredible game with twenty-five left and despite plenty of chances being created; it stood up as the game winner. Dale keeper Jack Hibberd made three great saves to keep his side in it whilst a clearance off the line in the final minute denied the visitors a point in an absolute fantastic game of football.

Staying in touch with Woodseats are Oughtibridge WM as they brushed Ranch aside by 4-0. Two goals from Ollie Black and one apiece from Justin Westoby and Callum Simms were the main difference as Dave Hudson’s men look for an immediate return to the top division. Ranch were indebted to their keeper to come away with just four goals conceded in a game the home side were in control of. Action from the game is left.

Moving up to fourth are the ever improving Southey Social as they beat local rivals Ecclesfield PL 5-4. John Mellor (right) scored a hat-trick, whilst Todd Guest and Lee Wilson were also on target as the home side continue their charge up the table. Ecclesfield netted through a George Sheen double and one each from Andy Baxter and Danny Barnett but are seemingly running out of games to avoid the drop.

AFC George remain above Ecclesfield but could have put some more daylight between the sides if it wasn’t for a mad final twenty minutes when they conceded six goals to Penistone Church. Leading 2-0 thanks to goals from Chris Blythen and Sean Waller, the roof seemed to cave in as Penistone went goal crazy. Lewis Dickenson scored twice whilst singles from Tim Council, Sam Scrivens, Tom Almond and Brad Kemp completed an amazing turnaround.

Also in the goals were Chapeltown RBL as they had eight different scorers. Joe Glover gave visitors Killamarsh Juniors an early lead but a bullet header from Ryan Robinson and a calm finish from Gavin Burbeary put Chapeltown ahead. Robin Holmes levelled for Killamarsh but then the home stepped it up with more goals from Andy Varns, Joe Moorhouse and Brad Beatson. Holmes’ second made it 5-3 but RBL kicked on again and added three more from Ash Burbeary, Joe Littlewood and a penalty from skipper Danny Cardwell.

DIVISION 2 - Bowland double puts Sportsman back on top, but Village toppled by Phillips - Norton Sportsman went back to the top of Division Two after two Brad Bowland goals helped them to victory at fourth place Norton Oaks B, but third place Woodhouse Village let a lead slip before crashing to defeat at a Civil Sports B inspired by a Jed Phillips hat-trick. Grant also hit a hat-trick in Cadbury's victory over Crookes & District, while an Aaron Connell double helped Steelers to victory at Woodhouse Juniors.

With Division Two leaders Cobden View not in action, Norton Sportsman had the chance to regain top spot with a win at Norton Oaks “B” and they did just that with a 3-1 away win. Sonny Wilson opened the scoring and then two goals in ten minutes from Brad Bowland (one a penalty) secured the points for Sportsman. Oli West scored for Oaks late on but it proved to be little more than a consolation.

Third placed Woodhouse Village’s hopes took a jolt as Dave Firth’s Civil Sports “B” team came from behind to defeat their visitors. Jed Phillips, with a hat-trick, and Joe Taylor scored for Civil who, after leading 2-0 early on, found themselves 3-2 down at half time as Woodhouse hit back with a Perry Jackson penalty, a Greg Burgin header and an Ollie Grady free kick which eluded the home custodian.. The Civil keeper made two great saves at the start of the second half to keep his side in it and his efforts were rewarded as Civil grabbed two second half goals to win it to put them just a point behind fourth placed Norton Oaks “B”.

Two goals from Aaron Connell did the trick for Steelers as they won at Woodhouse Juniors, a result that enables them to leapfrog their hosts; Matt Burgin with the sole Woodhouse strike. And finally, a Grant treble helped Cadbury to a 3-2 win over Crookes and District whose goals came from Jordan Coates and Jack Rowley – the winning goal coming with just five minutes left to play. Crookes will rue a missed penalty which at 2-2 could have swung the game their way.

4 FEB - SUNDAY CUPS - Sunday Cup draws made - Redmires will entertain Meadowhall Premier side High Noon in the Sunday Senior Cup semi-finals, while the Sunday Junior Cup semi-finals sees Ecclesfield Players Lounge entertain fellow Blades Super Draw Division One side Chapeltown RBL, and Division One leaders Woodseats Club entertain Swinton Robin Hood.
