LEAGUE TWENTYTWO CUP - Joe shows Earl How, while Fereday's the law as Sportsman stop Killamarsh - Despite losing all three of their league games, Hallam, with Chris Waddle playing his part, finally found some form to arguably create the shock of the day as two Joe Howsham strikes helped them put out the very highly rated League newcomers Royal Earl 4-2.  The sides had traded four goals with Gareth Simons and Paddy Carrig scoring for Earl and Dan Fox and Jonathan Sheldon for Hallam to take the tie to extra time and it was Howsham's brace that clinched the win for Hallam. Action from the game is below - pictures by Mick Moat. The first picture is Gareth Simons goal for Earl, while the second is Joe Howsham scoring with a free kick:

Another entertaining game saw Norton Sportsman and CBC Premier side Killamarsh Juniors also draw 4-4 after extra time. Mark Fereday (with two), Brad Bowland (right) and Chris Lewis netted for Norton whilst Matt Stead; with a brace of his own including one penalty), James Savage and Callum Mawbury found the target for Killamarsh. In the shootout, Killamarsh could only hit the target once, hit the post and had two kicks saved by Norton goalie Connor Merone whilst Sportsman were perfect thanks to Bowland, James Archer and Michael Gibbons whose kick proved to be the decisive one.

Another tie that was decided by penalties saw Forum go through at Oughtibridge WM. They were locked at 4-4 after extra time and had to separated on a penalty shootout which the visitors won 4-2 with Antony Holmes scoring the decisive kick. The home side only had themselves to blame as they squandered a 3-0 half time lead with goals from Matt Harrison, Strachan Sampson and an own goal giving them an early advantage. Javan Sherratt, Holmes and Matt Ord cancelling it out to force extra time. Harrison’s second of the morning restored Oughtibridge’s lead before a James Pemberton penalty in the closing stages of the extra thirty led to the shootout.

Cup holders Handsworth Old Crown are also through after they defeated Cobden View 3-2. Russell Hobson gave Crown a first minute lead only for Ben Bell to level, Goals from Jordan Stocks and Matt Ellis (left) put the home side 3-1 ahead, only for Lee Mansell to reduce the arrears and force an interesting finish. Another thriller happened in the all CBC Premier tie between Wickersley and Redmires with the visitors edging it by the odd goal in seven. Andy Bath and Jake Gamban both scored twice for Redmires whilst Wickersley were on target thanks to a Ross Johnson double and Ainsley Finney.

Another shock came as Ashley Sherritt scored twice as Division Two newcomers Mosborough Reds brushed aside Brinsworth Phoenix 5-0. Connor Fields and a thirty-yard screamer from Joe Harris had Mosborough two goals ahead as the game entered its final stages before an Ash Sherritt brace and one from Luke Fogg ensured the spoils went with the visitors. It was the end of the road for Mosborough Whites though as they missed a late penalty and fell 2-0 to Ryan Damms and Todd Guest strikes for Southey Social.

Division One side Cotts FC took the lead at Civil Sports A when Salem Hizam took advantage of a blooper from home custodian Joshua Branch but Civil fought back to make the third round thanks to a brace from Leon Howarth, one a penalty, and Gareth Griffiths, but it wasn't so good for the Civil Sports B as Division Two newcomers Crookes FC beat them 11-1 at Warminster Road. Liam Cartledge scored four whilst there were single strikes from Cowen, Islip, Mirfin, Murphy, Simpson, Morris and Rowley. Civil’s sole response came from Ben Firth as they were comprehensively beaten. Also in the goals were CBC Premier side Penistone Church as they came from an away trip to Colley with an 8-1 victory. Lewis Dickinson scored a hat-trick and Tom Sidebottom a brace as Church secured their place in round three. Sam Scrivens, Mitch Savage and Joe Cross completed the scoring with Josh Buxton scoring Colley’s consolation.

Intake Old Boys are another CBC Premier Division in the last sixteen as they recorded a 3-1 home win over The Shakey. Goals from Roper, Wood and Cook were on target for Intake whilst Woodhouse scored Shakey’s only goal. Ste Scott created all three goals for Norton Oaks A as they also progressed 3-0 at the expense of Woodhouse Village with Liam Paterson, Kenny Brakes (his third in three games) and Alan Mowforth being the beneficiaries. Action from the game is below - pictures from Norton Oaks:

Another CBC Premier side that made it through are Wadsley Bridge Pheasant as they defeated Ranch 3-1. Kane Doughty and Adam Askwith (right) put them two goals to the good before Michael Vella reduced the arrears; only for Lewis Fothergill to score a third Pheasant goal and seal the tie. Gavin Butler scored twice for Chapeltown RBL as they overcame fellow Division One side Norton Oaks B 3-2. Keenan Gibson scored what turned out to be the game winner after Jack Peake and a penalty from Nasa Meah had hauled Oaks back on level terms.

DIVISION 2 - Bent at the double to extend Jockey lead, while a Jordan Sambrook treble gets Chantrey off the mark - Two games in Division Two concluded the action. Wadsley Horse and Jockey stayed at the head of the table as they defeated Cadbury 3-1, helped by a couple of Danny Bent strikes. Danny Barnsley also scored for Wadsley whilst Holmes was Cadbury’s only respondent. Woodseats Chantrey also enjoyed a win with a comprehensive 8-0 away triumph at Crookes and District. Man of the Match Jordan Sambrook led the scoring with three, Brad Gray weighed with two (one a penalty) and goals from debutant Danny Cornell-Bishop, Rhys Oakes and Jordan’s cousin Gavin Sambrook completed the scoring.

10 OCT - Sunday Cup 3rd Round Cup draws - The draws for the Sunday Senior and Sunday Junior Cups two all-Blades Super Draw League ties come out of the hat in each competitions. In the Senior Cup, last season's semi finalists Redmires travel to the Stannington Village side that pipped them to our League title on goal difference, while Wadsley Bridge Pheasant play host to Handsworth Old Crown - both sides trying to add the Senior Cup to the Junior Cup they have both won in recent seasons. In the Junior Cup the two stand-out ties are Forum at home to fellow Division Two newcomers Crookes FC, and Division Two Royal Earl at home to an Oughtibridge WM that scored 13 in the previous round and have yet to drop a point in Division One. All ties in both competitions are scheduled for Sunday 15 Oct. The ties involving our clubs are as follows:

Sunday Senior Cup: Intake Old Boys v Thrybergh Top Club; Norton Oaks A v St Joseph's Emus; Stannington Village v Redmires; Wadsley Bridge Pheasant v Handsworth Old Crown.

Sunday Junior Cup: AFC Thirsty Flame v Mosborough Whites; Balma v Norton Oaks B; Forum v Crookes FC; Royal Earl v Oughtibridge WM; Southey Social v Bolsover Town; Swallownest Village v Norton Sportsman; Swinton Robin Hood v Boynton Sports or Todwick Villa.

8 OCT - SUNDAY SENIOR CUP - Six go through, but three crash out - In the Sunday Senior Cup Blades Super Draw League clubs had a good day with five of them winning their ties and only three failing to progress. Leading the way were current CBC Premier Champions Stannington Village as they won 6-3 at Red Lion Bombers. Alex Torr, with a brace, and single strikes from Sean Flynn and Adam Todd had them 4-2 at the interval and despite missing a host of chances in the second they added more goals from Ben Cook and Dean Jepson to ensure they were in the hat for round three.

Aaron Liles and Kenny Brakes, the latter’s second goal in as many weeks, put Norton Oaks “A” in command at home to Albert. Despite it being a close 2-1 game at the interval, Norton upped their game in the second half and scored three unanswered goals thanks to a brace from Jordan Marshall and Patric Winter finishing off a brilliant team move. Action from the game is below - pictures from Norton Oaks.

Also recording a 5-1 home win were Handsworth Old Crown as they saw off KCM Fighting Cocks. David Haggerty and Matt Ellis both scored twice and Russell Hobson once as a dominant performance, purely in the second half, gave Old Crown a deserved win.

Wadsley Bridge Pheasant enjoyed their trip to Worsborough Common and came away with a well rewarded 6-2 win. Jordan Turner led the individual scoring with a hat-trick whilst a couple from Adam Askwith and one from Joe Slater made it a good morning’s work for the visitors. Our fifth side winning their tie were Intake Old Boys as they came through by the odd goal in five against Groves Social. Goals from Wood, Heald and Turner proved to be the difference there; and Redmires are also through but they didn’t kick in a ball to do as planned hosts AFC Schoolboy forfeited the tie due to being unable to raise a team. Action from the game is below - pictures by Mick Moat.

Biting the Sunday Senior Cup dust though were Penistone Church as they lost 5-3 at Balby Bridge in a game that the Penistone team felt shouldn’t have been played due to the pitch condition: Lewis Dickinson, Scott Briggs and George Orrell on target for Church. Wickersley’s trip to Monkwood also ended in a loss as they were defeated 4-2, Ben Thornton and Matt Godley scoring for Lewis Carder’s team. Woodseats Club also fell by the wayside as Joker had enough about them to record a 4-1 away win. Club missing a penalty with a quarter of an hour left when 2-0 down proved to be the turning point as the visitors then scored a third, and although Whittaker pulled one back, a fourth in the last minute secured the visitors had the final say. Action from the game is below - pictures by Mick Moat.

SUNDAY JUNIOR CUP - Eight go through, but three fall - In the Sunday Junior Cup, Oughtibridge WM made it unlucky thirteen for their hosts Greasbrough Reserves as they romped to a comprehensive away win. Callum Chambers and Matt Harrison both scored four times whilst doubles off Ollie Black and Chaz Tunnard plus a Callum Simms strike completed the rout. Danny Booth was outstanding in the Oughtibridge midfield, pulling all the strings and generally being unplayable.

A Liam Cartledge hat-trick proved to be the catalyst behind Crookes FC’s 5-1 win at home to Elsecar Fitzwilliam Arms, Cowen and Pemberton also being on target. Also winning 5-1 were Norton Sportsman, as they recorded that at Highgate. Jack Waymouth and Brad Bowland both scored a pair and Chris Lewis also netted for a nap hand. Scoring doubles were Nasa Meah and Matt Jessermino for Norton Oaks “B” as they recovered from conceding an own goal at home to Café Sport Comrades, Will Carlisle also scored for Oaks as they ended up winning 5-2.

Southey Social were always in command of their tie at home to Manor Barn. Ryan Whitney and Todd Guest put them in command and a second half double from Josh Sugden gave Social a comfortable 4-0 win at the end. Two from Antony Holmes, and further goals Carter Mupwaya and Javan Sherratt ensured Forum’s path at the expense of Woodhouse Athletic whilst Jack Bennett scored both goals for Mosborough Whites and make their lengthy trip to Langold Lakeside a worthwhile one. In the all Blades Super Draw League tie, it was Royal Earl who came out on top against hosts Ranch. Earl had six different scorers in Steve Brammer, Mike Towey, Jack Hargreaves, Tom Roebuck, Ryan Hindley and Chris Wood as they overcame their Division One hosts who had Ash Betts and an own goal to account for their tally.

Exiting the Junior Cup were Brinsworth Phoenix as hosts AFC Thirsty Flame extinguished them with a 4-2 home win; goals from Joe Statham and Nathan Darwent for the visitors. Woodseats Chantrey were left rueful as they were beaten 4-3 at home by Queens Head Hoyland. Chantrey were ahead after twenty minutes thanks to Charlie Hawkins but Queens then scored four answered goals to put the match seemingly beyond reach. However, the home team rallied in the final quarter of an hour and goals from Danny Lonsdale and Jordan Sambrook made it an interesting finish but they couldn’t get another to force extra-time. Boynton Sports home tie against Todwick Villa was postponed until next week.

CBC PREMIER - Kamara gives Civil a Killa blow to send Juniors top - There was only a sole game in the CBC Premier Division and a Leon Howarth penalty seemingly put Civil Sports “A” on the right track at Killamarsh Juniors. Inspired by some fine goalkeeping by veteran James Abramski at one end, Killamarsh took a firm hold of the game at the other with four unanswered second half strikes. Chris Savage and Josh Batterham put them in front and they never relinquished it. Montelle Kamara with a brace, his first a superb thirty yard free-kick into the top corner, secured a 4-1 home win and as a result sent Killamarsh to the head of the CBC Premier table.

DIVISION 1 - Sam's the man to send Village back to the top - In Division One Woodhouse Village are the new leaders after a 4-2 win at a Civil Sports “B” side still looking for their first points of the season. Sam Fewkes scored a double for Village to take them there whilst Theo Wilson and Chris Salt also netted in the battle of the newly promoted sides; Civil’s scores coming from Ben Firth and Jack Challenor. Two penalties from Joe Taylor helped Cobden View to a similar win at Cotts FC in a well contested game. Salem Hizam and Tom Houghton scored for the home side but Josh Limbrick and Tim Pitt also netted for Cobden to hoist them into fourth place

DIVISION 2 - Jockey Mitch too good for Reds to go top - Division Two action saw Wadsley Horse and Jockey become the new leaders after a 5-2 win at previously unbeaten Mosborough Reds. Two goals in the opening six minutes gave the visitors the lead and they would never let it go after that. Mitchell Simnett scored twice for Jockey whilst further strikes from Danny Barnsley, James McCormick and Ross Lamkin ensured they went nap; Joe Harris scoring twice for Reds. Billy Hilbert scored a hat-trick for Shakey as they defeated Crookes and District 6-1 on the road. New signing James Lippett had levelled matters for Crookes, but Shakey kicked on with Ross Ford, Steve Dickinson and Adam Smith also finding the net. And finally, Cadbury enjoyed a sweet away trip to Woodhouse Juniors: winning 2-1 thanks to goals from Holmes and Waite; Matt Megson being the home side’s solitary scorer.

1 OCT - CBC PREMIER - Kenny puts the Brakes on Penistone to send Oaks to the top - Only a small handful of games were played in the Blades Super Draw League, and in the games that were played there were twenty-five goals scored.   In the first of two CBC Premier games, Norton Oaks are the new leaders after a Kenny Brakes goal (right) gave them a narrow 1-0 win over visitors Penistone Church. Penistone had the lion’s share of the game throughout, but the winner came when an Alan Mowforth corner was poked home by central defender Brakes. Penistone also finished the game with ten men when Oaks’ Scott Graham was brought down on a one-on-one, and now slip into the bottom five. More action from the game is below - pictures by Mick Moat.

Leapfrogging them in the CBC Premier are Wickersley after they recorded a 5-3 away win at hosts Intake Old Boys. The visitors took the lead when a Cory Goodwin cross was headed in by Ross Johnson and the same player doubled the lead with a shot into the roof of the net after some good team play. It became three when Ainsley Finney scored his first of the season, but on the stroke of half time Harry Chamberlain reduced the arrears with a sweet volley from a Mark West delivery. Johnson was denied a hat-trick goal by the Intake keeper before Finney’s second of the morning regained the three-goal margin. Visiting skipper Kristian Lee-Green ensured Wickersley went nap before strikes from Jack Heald and Dale Wood gave the scoreline a more respectable look for Intake.

DIVISION 1 - Village toppled by Sportsman - Norton Sportsman ascended to the top of Division One as they recorded a splendid 4-0 away win at Woodhouse Village. Sportsman took the lead against the run of play when Chris Lewis got his head to a flighted free-kick and Jack Waymouth doubled it with a great curling shot from twenty yards out. Waymouth had a hand in the other two goals, unselfishly squaring the ball for Brad Bowland to make it three just before half time and then crossing for new signing Connor Pryde to make it four.

Chapeltown RBL are still in the mix despite sharing six goals with visitors Ranch. A brace from Ash Burbeary put the home team in command before Michael Vella pulled one back only for Joe Wadsworth’s firm header from a well taken Danny Cardwell free-kick put Chapeltown 3-1 ahead. The goals in the first half kept coming, Mitch Cowlishaw reducing the margin and setting up an intriguing second half. With quarter of an hour left, Ranch were back on parity when Alex Mosley scored from the spot and after this both sides almost won it: Tyrone Gunter having a goal chalked off for Ranch and Burbeary going close for Chapeltown with a chip that landed narrowly wide.

DIVISION 2 - Reds go top - There was only a solitary game in Division Two, and Mosborough Reds profited from it to record a 5-1 home win over opponents Woodseats Chantrey and become the new leaders. The damage was done in the opening half an hour as goals from Scott Williams, Ash Hotchin and Brad Haigh put Mosborough three goals to the good. Midway through the second half, Joe Harris’ free kick was parried by the Chantrey custodian and Luke Newman netted the rebound. Danny Lonsdale’s fierce shot two minutes later pulled a consolation goal back for the visitors only for Reds’ to go nap with nineteen minutes left when confusion reigned in the away penalty area and Jack Hotchin tapped the ball home.
