14 OCT - SUNDAY SENIOR CUP - Oughtibridge edge out Intake, but Redmires suffer a shock KO - Of the seven Senior Cup ties featuring Blades Super Draw League teams, only two failed to progress and even then one of those who exited was to a fellow CBC Premier Division side. The biggest winners on the day were Norton Sportsman who dispatched Byron House with an 8-1 win. Harry Groombridge opened the scoring for Sportsman before a hat-trick of headers by the prolific Brad Bowland (Left) put the game beyond any reasonable doubt. Byron pulled one back but Jack Waymouth restored the four goal margin to send the home side 5-1 ahead at the interval. Two further headers from Chris Winters and Joe Muress made it seven before Bowland tapped home his fourth of the morning to complete the rout.

Also in the goals were Wadsley Bridge Pheasant as they made their long trip to West Melton worthwhile as they recorded a 6-0 victory at Queens United. Pheasant had the tie wrapped up in the first half as they scored four goals without reply thanks to a penalty from Luke Beedham, a couple of headers from Harry Hurst and Ashley Simpson and Jordan Livett’s first of the game. Despite the heavy rain making conditions harsh, two more Livett (right) strikes in the second half to make it six and complete a well taken hat-trick ensured a smooth passage into the next stage.

Another side that scored a hatful away from home were current CBC Premier champions Stannington Village as they defeated Thrybergh Top Club 8-2. Top Club took the lead in the opening minute but Dean Jepson (left) levelled when his persistence saw him harry the home keeper and then dispossess him to tap home. Sean Flynn then supplied a great pass for Charlie Hobson who finished well with a strike into the top corner before adding the third himself with a strike from range. Lewis Dickinson then got in on the act with a fine left foot finish into the top corner to put Village 4-1 ahead at the break but Thrybergh made it 4-2 in the early stages of the second half. Yet Village kicked on again and Jepson flicked the ball onto Dickinson for 5-2, before the former completed his hat-trick with goals six and seven: Ben Cook and Lee Johnstone providing the relevant assists before Arnie Grayson made it eight with a left foot finish into the far corner.

After a couple of bad defeats, Wickersley got their winning groove back as they saw off Cosywarm 5-3 at the Herringthorpe Stadium. Lewis Carder’s troops were two goals to the good thanks to Ross Johnson and Joe McGuinness’ first of the game. An unstoppable free-kick saw Cosywarm reduce the arrears before Adam Daughtrey and McGuinness again found the net to give the home side a three goal margin. A quickfire double in the last ten minutes saw Cosywarm make it a one goal game before McGuinness scored a hat-trick goal from the penalty spot to give Wickersley the win.

Two strikes from Levi Richmond (right) proved to be the difference maker as Renishaw Rangers defeated Romans Rest Lions 2-1 with all the goals coming in the second half. Richmond could have had a hat-trick but saw his free-kick strike the crossbar and then land on the wrong side of the goal line. Yet the all Blades Super Draw League encounter saw Oughtibridge WM edge past Intake Old Boys 3-2 at the War Memorial Ground. Chas Tunnard opened the scoring for the understrength home side, who started the game with manager David Hudson in between the posts, before Callum Chambers scored twice on his first start of the season to put the home side three up after half an hour. Mark West and Sam Knight made it a close game with strikes for Intake but Oughtibridge managed to hold on despite playing the last half an hour with ten men after Harley Scholey was injured and they had no substitutes to call on.

Having made the semi-final last season, hopes were high that Redmires could go one better this year but they suffered an early exit as their trip to Doncaster ended with hosts Scawthorpe Athletic recorded a 5-1 triumph: Andy Bath scoring Redmires sole strike. Both Chapeltown RBL and Woodseats Club are in the hat for round three though as their respective opponents failed to field a side so Legion and Club received walk overs, whilst Handsworth Old Crown must wait to find out if they will join them after their game at Kilton Rovers was postponed at very short notice.

14 OCT - SUNDAY JUNIOR CUP - Barnsley too good for Barnsley !! while Woodhouse leave Mosborough with red faces  - Thirteen teams are through to the next round of the Junior Cup as the Blades Super Draw sides enjoyed a good morning. Leading the way with a comprehensive home win were Sheffield Sixes as they hit fifteen goals without reply against an unfortunate Barnsley Ship. Danny Barnsley (left) was the chief hitman as he hit five whilst there were doubles for Simon Howe, Brad Howe, Brad Nicholson and Eddie Parker. Matt Coyle and Damon Ashall also found the net for Sixes who had the game comprehensively won at half time as they had hit ten by then.

Boynton Sports hit nine goals for the second successive round to hand visitors West Green a 9-2 loss. Jake Ballinger and Lee Jordan both hit a brace whilst Enos Huly, Sean Woodward, Tom Goodison, Curtis Priday and Kieron Sykes-Tobin also found the net. Cotts were another side scoring a handful as they hit Innings for seven in their tie. Nick Haywood scored twice for the home side whilst Sam Stacey, Joe Moakes, Jon Dolan and the Blythen brothers (Mike and Chris) also netted.

Ryan Damms was a hat-trick hero for Southey Social as they enjoyed a 5-0 success at home to Crown Scissett, John Mellor scoring the other two. There was also a Civil double as both the A and B sides made it into the third round. Player-Manager Gary Eades was at the heart of the A team’s 5-3 win over Thrybergh SSC as he grabbed a couple, further goals coming from Thomas Bamford, George Hobson and an own goal. The B side weren’t to be outdone though as they recorded a 3-0 win over Mount thanks to James Greenwood’s double and one from Alex Cowlishaw which opens the possibility of an all-Civil encounter in the next round.

Ben Bell (right) had a game to remember for Cobden View as they advanced after a penalty shoot out following a 3-3 draw after extra time with AFC Lundwood. Bell had scored twice, Mike Walker the other before the former turned hero in the shootout as his stand-in goalkeeping heroics saw him save a Lundwood penalty to help his side to glory. John Rossiter was again in the goals for Norton Oaks A as they advanced to round three with a 5-3 defeat of KCM Ryecroft Taproom, Rossiter hitting a hat-trick and Oaks also seeing Adam Watts and Jason Hopwood find the Taproom net.

Liam Cartledge’s double proved decisive as Crookes recorded a 2-1 away win at Queens Head Hoyland whilst Mosborough Whites are also through thanks to a hard fought 4-2 victory at Swallownest. Chris Howard and Lewis Russell had Whites two goals to the good before Swallownest got the game back on parity. A low finish from Jordan Meadows put Mosborough 3-2 ahead and the win was secured when a cross to the far post was converted by Danny State.

There were also two all Blades Super Draw ties and Woodhouse Juniors and Forum prevailed from them. Woodhouse overcame Mosborough Reds 3-1 thanks to goals from Henry Bradshaw, George Leesley and Jordan Kyle with Ross Elliott providing Reds’ sole reply whilst Forum continued their great start to the season a 7-1 win at Woodseats Chantrey. Matty Ord continued his hot goalscoring form with a hat-trick whilst Josh Gibson, Jav Sherratt, Antony Holmes and Nat Reid also netted against a Chantrey side whose consolation came from Brad Gray.

Last season’s winners Royal Earl are through without kicking a ball as hosts Shireoaks Welfare couldn’t raise a side but the league suffered a sole exit as Beighton Magpies were narrowly defeated 2-1 at Cawthorne 2017 with Dale Featherstone on target in a superb match played in appalling weather conditions.

14 OCT - DIVISION 1 - Ranch leave Oaks B rooted at the bottom -  Tn the only game in Division One, Ranch made their trip to Norton Oaks B worthwhile with a 3-0 away win where the visitors took their chances whilst the home side didn’t. On the mark for the away side were Alex Mosley, Chris Wajs and Connor Brunt; a result that takes them up three places in the table.

14 OCT - DIVISION 2 - Phoenix get second home win, while Jockey rides off with the points at Shakey - There was just a couple of games in Division Two, and it was a welcome return to that winning feeling for Brinsworth Phoenix as they came from behind to defeat Colley 3-1. Matt Meaney had given the visiting side the lead but three unanswered goals for Phoenix gave the points. Kyle Lawton levelled matters with a powerful header and then great wing play from Hussein set up Daniel Commander to put Phoenix ahead and the win was secured when Jack Hawkes latched onto a loose Colley throw-in and finished superbly. Wadsley Horse and Jockey made it two wins in a row as they edged past Shakey 3-2 thanks to strikes from Reece James, Luke Hancock and Sam Eggleston, and a penalty save by Joel Clarke, meaning that Billy Hilbert’s double for Shakey was in vain.

11 OCT - STEVE GEE MERIT CUP FINAL - Oughtibridge WM to face Norton Oaks B in the Merit Cup Final on 25 Oct - The Steve Gee Merit Cup Final will see Division One Norton Oaks B face CBC Premier Oughtibridge WM at the Stocksbridge Park Steels Look Local stadium on Thursday 25 Oct, kick-off at 7:15.

Division One Civil Sports A could also claim a second scalp at home against Handsworth Old Crown if they beat Norton Oaks B in Round 2. Division Two's other club, Colley, have a tough home tie against Divsion One leaders Forum, while holders Wadsley Bridge Pheasant travel to Division One Cobden View. An all CBC Premier tie sees Stannington Village entertain Norton Sportsman, while CBC Premier leaders Oughtibridge WM face a difficult tie at Division One Crookes FC.

7 OCT - RIP Pugsley - Richard PUGSLEY Poole, Handsworth Old Crown's Number 1 Supporter has sadly passed away after several years battling illness. Despite his problems, no matter where Crown played or how many buses Richard had to catch he always seemed to be there to cheer the lads on. Always helped out on match days fetching and carrying match day equipment when fit enough to do so, He will be sorely missed by everyone at Crown and by everyone who knew him. Our thoughts go to his family and friends.

7 OCT - TWENTYTWO CUP - Gordon on the Marc for Boynton to Flash past Woodeats, while Civil Cain Wickersley - The two biggest shocks in the League Twentytwo Cup Round 2 saw Marcus Gordon score twice as Division Two Boynton Sports put out CBC Premier Woodseats Club and Danny Cain do the same as the Division 1 former holderrs Civil Sports A thrashed CBC Premier Wickersly Youth. One of those came at Thorncliffe as Division Two leaders Boynton Sports defeated Woodseats Club 3-0. Woodseats were undone by a Marcus Gordon double for the home side, the second being an unstoppable long range that arrowed into the top corner, and one from the prolific Jake Ballinger whilst at the other end of the pitch Adam Martin made a series of excellent saves and a solid back four that thwarted the Club strikers.

Another team which provided a surprise were two-time winners Civil Sports A as they recorded a stupendous 6-1 away win at Wickersley. It all started off so well for the home team as Lloyd Gelsthorpe gave them the lead but Civil turned on the style to score six goals without response. Dan Cain proved to be a pain for the hosts as he notched a brace for Civil whilst player-manager Gary Eades, Kane Lawrence, Shane McKay and Callum Stewart were also on target for the visitors.

Current holders Wadsley Bridge Pheasant are also in the hat for the next round as they overcame a much depleted Chapeltown RBL side in an all CBC Premier clash by 7-0. Adam Askwith (left) led the scoring for the Pheasant with a well taken hat-trick whilst a couple of strikes from Lewis Grist and single efforts from Carl Andrews and Lewis Fothergill completed an excellent win. Stannington Village avoided a potential banana skin in their game at Division Two side Mosborough Whites as they recorded a 5-0 success. Lewis Dickinson scored twice for Village whilst Sean Flynn, Bill Green and Dean Jepson also found the back of the Whites net.

The game of the round though came at Warminster Road as Intake Old Boys and Renishaw Rangers shared ten goals before the Old Boys prevailed over their fellow CBC Premier opponents in a penalty shootout. Mark West scored four times for the home team whilst Dominic Naughton was also on target for Intake, Renishaw replying with a double from Joe Glover and efforts from Robin Holmes, veteran Rikki Davidson and Ryan Plant. Callum Paine proved to be the main man though as he netted the crucial penalty in the subsequent shootout.

Redmires were ruthless in their tie at Norton Oaks A as they scored seven without response. Jon Wall scored a couple for Dave Knaggs’ side whilst Andy Bath, Tom Whiting, Jake Gamban, Jake Schofield and Ross Thompson also netted. Equally as lethal in front of goals were Norton Sportsman as they hit double figures against Ranch with a 10-0 success. Harry Groombridge marked his full Sportsman debut with a couple of strikes, one an exquisite chip over the Ranch custodian. Andy Gibbons and Sonny Wilson also had a brace apiece whilst Jack Waymouth, James Archer, Chris Lewis and Brad Bowland also added to their own personal goal tallies.

Two second half goals helped Mosborough Reds to a place in the next round at the expense of Division Two Civil Sports B. Jake Leonard broke the deadlock half way through the second half when he played a one-two with Scott Williams before slotting the ball into the corner of the Civil net and the victory was secured in the final minute when Luke Fogg rifled the ball into the roof of the net from a Kyle Fletcher corner kick. Last season’s semi-finalists Crookes FC made no mistake when they saw off Beighton Magpies 6-1 with Mike Murphy scoring twice. Matt Cowen, James Hambling, Liam Cartledge and an own goal made up the six whilst Magpies gave it their best and Sergiu Udrea netted with a nice flick. Action from the game is below - pictures by Mick Moat.


In an all Division One clash, Forum edged past Southey Social by the odd goal in five. Matty Ord netted twice for Jamie Smith’s team and Anthony Holmes once against a Southey side who had taken the lead with a twenty yard effort from Todd Guest. Ord and Holmes then put Forum 3-1 up before John Mellor’s goal for Southey made it an interesting final ten minutes but the home side held on for the win. Michael Blythen scored twice as well as Cotts FC advanced to the next stage with a 3-0 win at Shakey, Nick Haywood adding the other for the early Division One front runners.

Danny Barnsley gave Sheffield Sixes the lead when he profited from a mistake by the Colley goalkeeper before Matt Meaney levelled for the visitors when a clearance hit him and rebounded into the goal. Sixes regained the lead when Brad Nicholson netted a free header from a corner and could have gone further ahead but missed from the penalty spot. Danny Parker sent the teams in level at half time before Faisal Miladi tapped home the winner midway through the second half. Also edging through 3-2 were Cobden View at the expense of Wadsley Horse and Jockey of Division Two. Reece James and George Scott were on target for Jockey but Cobden rode to the win with efforts from Ralph Clarkson, Joe Taylor and Callum McCury.
