OCT – CBC PREMIER –
the leaders, while Flynn turns back the years for Stannington –
A Matt Morton double and
a late Steve Brammer (left) winner helped Royal Earl topple the early
CBC Premier leaders Chapeltown RBL 4-3. Five goals in the first half
started when Jed Phillips crossed first time for Jay Carter to head RBL
into the lead, but just 5 minutes later Legion found themselves 2-1
behind after Matt Morton and Sam Fewkes strikes for Earl. When Brandon
Whitfield was brought down in the area Morgan Cowell stepped up to score
the penalty and level for RBL, but Morton netted his second to put Earl
back in front
RBL’s task was made
harder when both Whitfield and Luis Afonso-Ferreira had to give way to
injury, but RBL levelled again when Ash Gray’s inch perfect tackle lead
to Cowell’s raking ball, which Carter touched around the goalkeeper and
rolled in to the empty net, but it was Earl that went home with all
three points when the ball was nodded down for Steve Brammer to hammer
Stannington Village's veteran Shaun Flynn (right) showed he has lost
none of his instinct for goals with a hat-trick in their 6-3 win at FC
Inter. Stannington took the lead when Seb Robbemond played a 1-2 with
Charlie Hobson and finished well in the bottom corner, but Inter
levelled through Mazin Ali. Stannington regained the lead when Flynn
tapped in from close range and a similar tap-in by Jack Haslam from 6
yards made it 3-1. A good move down the right saw Seb Robbemond cross
for Flynn to volley home his second and although Oliver Parfitt grabbed
Inter’s second, it was 5-2 by half-time when Flynn completed his
hat-trick with his right foot. Ali netted his second in the second half
to give Inter some hope until Stannington’s 6th in the last few minutes
when Jon Wall broke away and squared for Lee Johnstone to tap in.
Hardeman (left) was the star for Joker Wickersley Youth in their 4-1
victory over Woodman Intake. The Intake keeper made one good save from
an Adam Daughtrey shot, but soon after he was beaten when Matt Bentley
latched onto a loose ball before turning and hitting it into the roof of
the net. Jordan Thomas shot over and Daughtrey miskicked when he tried
to lob the keeper, before Nathan Taylor had a shot brilliantly saved by
the Intake keeper.
The second half wasn’t too old when Hardeman set up Daughtrey and this
time he went through to score, but Intake got back into it with a Kain
Murphy header. Joker restored their two goal lead when a corner was
headed home by Matt Claxton and they made it absolutely safe in the
final minute when good work by Hardeman allowed Daughtrey to finally get
Connor Platts scored his fourth double in October in Oughtibridge WM's
3-0 victory over Wadsley Bridge Pheasant. Pheasant had plenty of
possession, but it was Oughtibridge that showed them how to take their
chances with Adam Thomas adding Oughtibridge’s other.
OCT – DIVISION 1 –
Lions climb into the top three, and Reds get first win –
Even though leaders
Boynton Sports saw their game at Sheaf House postponed due to a
waterlogged pitch, it turned out to be a good day for them as both AFC
Dronfield and Sheffield South fell to defeats.
Southey Social went
second with a 3-2 victory at AFC Dronfield. On return from injury Ty
Gunter opened the scoring on his debut for Dronfield but Daiel Jenkinson
levelled things and Jordan Livett (right) put Southey in front before
half time. A Joe Taylor strike drew Dronfield, but a Jamie Hopkins
strike gave the points to Southey and condemned Dronfield to their first
defeat of the season.
Reds claimed three points for the first time to move out of the bottom
three with a 2-1 home win over Sheffield South. Mosborough started the
game the better and created a number of chances without converting
although Reds keeper Bradon Greaves needed to make a good save from a
free kick to keep it 0-0 at half time. Mosborough took the lead after 60
mins when Danny Howson broke through and calmly finished past the
goalkeeper, but Sheffield South put on the pressure and Luke Howson
equalised direct from a corner. The game looked like it was heading for
a draw when Alix Sorsby (left) scored a 25 yard screamer into the top
corner to claim their first win of the season.
Mosborough Lions also
won 7-0 at Water Tower to move up to third. Alex Moth hit two of them
with Lions others coming from Dan Beech, Sam Midgley, Tom Davies, Billy
Gillott and Harry Bembridge
29 OCT – DIVISION 2 – Brunsmeer have the B-Rains to go top, while Sugden's treble lift Royal Oak – Division 2 has new leaders in Brunsmeer AJW after Brad Rains hit four in their 9-0 victory over Chapeltown FC. Brunsmeer’s others came from a Lee Clark double, Ben Grocutt, Danny Beighton and Liam Hannah as they went top on goal difference.
27 OCT – Fixtures and Referees for Novemer now shown on the website – The Fixtures and Referees for November are now shown in the Fixtures section. Home teams must confirm that their pitches are available and confirm the details with both their opponents and Referees as soon as possible.
22 OCT – SUNDAY TROPHY –
the man as Sheaf House make it a dozen –
A first half Sam Jones goal proved to be the game's
only goal as Sheaf House beat Barnsley's Pack Horse 1-0. The visitors
were unbeaten in the Barnsley Championship prior to the game and had
scored 21 goals in just 4 games, but a superb defensive display ensured
Sheaf would become the 12th Blades Super Draw team through to the last
32 of the Sunday Trophy.
OCT – CBC PREMIER –
and Inter get first wins and Woodman gets first point –
A Brad Howe (left) double helped Sheffield Sixs come from two down to
gain their first win of the season 4-2 and stun an Eckington side that
started the day in third place.
Eckington took the lead
with a Tom Gambles penalty after Joe Renshaw had been brought down in
the box and they doubled the lead in the 34th minute when a good ball
over the top found Joel Cousins who squared across for Renshaw to slot
home. Sixs comeback started just before the break when the Eckington
keeper spilled a free kick and Howe prodded the ball home. Sixs
equalised at the start of the second half when a long throw into the box
was flicked on by Tommy Davies and Mike Whitehead tapped home. Sixs
completed the turnaround when great work by Ben Southwell saw him play a
ball into the box to find a late run by Chris Belshaww and he lobbed it
over the keeper. Sixs sealed the victory in the final minute when
Southwell made another quick break down the left before squaring the
ball across for Howe to slide home his second.
FC Inter also came from behind at Wadsley Bridge Pheasant to gain their
first win of the season 4-2.
The game started well for Pheasant and Hotheyfa Gadour put them ahead,
but Inter begin to take control and Anthony Norman equalised before
Radwan Dughman put them ahead. Pheasant hit back and Chris Steer
equalised before half-time, but the second half belonged to Inter and
Russ Westby put them ahead with a penalty and Soufan Bousselham made
that first win safe with 15 minutes remaining.
Jack Heald scored twice as Woodman Intake came from behind three time to
earn their first point of the season by drawing 4-4 with Oughtibridge
WM. Heald scored a penalty, but then missed one, so when Woodman were
awarded a third penalty, Kyle Robinson took the responsibily and scored.
Woodman’s fourth came from Elliott Coles. Oughtibridge also had a double
scorer with Connor Platts netting twice to take his tally to six in his
last three games. Their others came from Chas Tunnard and Adam Thomas,
but they couldn’t hold on and Wwoodman deservedly took a point
Another draw, 1-1 between Royal Earl and Stannington Village, meant both
of them failed to make up much ground on the leaders Chapeltown RBL.
Stannington took the
lead after half an hour when the ball fell to Lee Johnstone and his shot
was turned in by Jack Haslam. Luca DeFalco almost doubled the lead when
he hit the bar, but it was Earl that hit back with a Matt Morton
equaliser just before half time. Neither side could breakthrough in the
second half, although Stannington almost snatched it in the last ten
minutes when Dave Shepherd rifled one from 20 yards but it came back off
OCT – DIVISION 1 –
diet good for Boynton and Southey topple the Tower –
A high quality game saw Division 1 leaders Boynton Sports make it five
wins out of five as two Richie Atkins (right) goals helped them to a 3-2
victory at WH Crookes. Boynton went in front
when Isaac Reardon played in Curt Priday and he whipped in a cross for
Atkins to score with a well placed header. Crookes hit back and levelled
before half-time with an Oliver McQuillin strike and McQuillin lobbed
the keeper early in the second half to put Crookes in front. The leaders
had to dig deep and levelled with a Jack Bennett free kick before
winning it when Smajl Bytyci and Reardon combined to set Atkins up to
score his second and the winner.
The other Division One
game to survive the floods saw Southey Social climb out of the bottom
three with a 4-1 victory over bottom club Water Tower. Southey’s goals
came from Roan Heeley, Jamie Hopkins, Dalton Birchall and Daniel
Jenkinson, with Oliver Beaumont scoring for Water Tower in a game well
refereed by Craig Couldwell.
OCT – DIVISION 2 –
snookered by Wadsley and Winter Green disjointed by Cartledge –
Just two Division Two games survived the floods and one of them saw the
Division 2 leaders Cueball lose their perfect record as two Dylan
Collins (left) headers helped Wadsley FC to their first away win of the
season 3-2. Cue Ball took the lead
inside 10 minutes through Travis Hodgson, but Wadlsey equalised before
half-time with a Collins header from a corner. Hodgson restored Cue
Ball's lead just after half time by finishing off a route one attack,
but Wadsley fought back again with a Reece James strike equalising
again. Wadsley then got on top and won the game near the end through
another Collins header.
AFC Wisewood climbed up
to second as Thomson Cartledge hit a treble in an 8-1 win over Winter
Green. It was just 2-0 at half-time, but after Wisewood scored their
third, Tyler Doman netted to put Winter Green back in the game. That was
as good as it got for the visitors though and the young legs of
Weisewood ran riot in the last ten minutes to add five more. Wisewood’s
other goals came from Matt Cowen, Oliver Scott, Wilker Sousa, Declan
Pinhorn and Oscar Cam.
OCT – SUNDAY TROPHY –
Galore as Blades have 11 through –
Scoring 74 goals between them 11 Blades Super Draw League teams went
through to the last 32 of the County FA Sunday Trophy. A Michael Blythen
(left) hat-trick and one from Chris Salt saw Cotts come back from 4-1
down to force a 4-4 draw at Angel Grenoside before Cotts went through
5-4 on penalties.
Another to score a hat-trick was Brunsmeer’s Lee Clark and along with
singles from Charlie Clark, Spencer Rains, Fraser Russell, Tom Kelsey,
Brad Leather and Taylor Askham they thrashed Worsbrough Common Wanderers
9-1. Also 9-1 winners were Chapeltown FC against Langold Old Boys with
Danny Smith hitting three of them along with two each for Brandon Shaw
and Ben Smedley, with one each for Harry Hurst and Logan Hakes.
Mosborough Lions also had a hat-trick scorer in Billy Gillott and with
singles from Dan Beech, Sam Roden, Mike Parker and Jack Joyce they ran
out 7-0 winners at Sheffield Phoenix.
Another hat-trick came from Sheffield South’s Jon Cooper and along with
two each from Luke Howson and Jim Pollard, and singles from Brad Smith,
Harry Pollard and Ben Greasham, they had a very easy 10-0 victory over
West Bretton. The biggest win of the day though came WH Crookes’ way,
beating Sheffield Seven Hills 12-0 with a hat-trick from Oliver
McQuillin, two each for Charlie Cope and Harvey Allatt, and one each for
Andrew Fox, Tom Ricketts, Jack Campbell, Jacob Mattock and Pete Smith.
The all-Blades Super Draw tie saw two Jack Shaw goals help Jubilee
Rangers to a 3-1 victory at Water Tower. Jubilee started quickly and
Shaw gave them the lead when he bent one into the top corner, but Tower
levelled just before the break when Louis Ballard came off the bench to
score with his first touch. Jubilee again started the second half
strongly and Danny Barnsley pounced on a defensive mistake to put them
back in front and when Barnsley was later chopped down in the area, Shaw
stepped up to settle the tie from the penalty spot.
Pitt (right) also scored two in AFC Dronfield went through 5-1 at home
to Cobcar B. A Sam Matata goal had the teams going in level at the
break, but the second half saw last season’s beaten finalists Dronfield
step up a gear and Pitts double along with goals from Josh Sell and Joe
Taylor saw them through.
Richie Atkins and Curtis Priday both scored doubles in Boynton Sports’
7-0 victory over Brinsworth Whitehill. Lee Jordan and Smajl Bytyci ahd
Boynton two up and Atkins first made it tree before half time. After the
break, Priday marked his return from injury with the 4th and
5th before Jake Gamban added the 6th. Atkins
completed the scoring when he chased down keeper Jenson Beever’s long
clearance before rounding the keeper to score.
Both Wadsley FC and Winter Green had four different scorers in their
wins. Wadsley took the lead against Lundhill when Leon Dearns scored
direct from a corner and a great counter attack was then finished off by
Sam Wainwright to double their lead. Will Fisher made it three before
the break, but after Wadsley were reduced to 10 men for the second half,
an own goal gave Lundhill some hope until Kurtis Westerman added
Wadsley’s fourth. Winetr Green came out 4-2 winners against Shakhtar
Sheffield with Jordan Ratcliffe and Lewis Pierce strike putting them two
up before their visitors pulled one back. Ryan Clapham restored their
two goal lead only for Shakhtar to pull another back, but Tyler Doman
netted to make it safe for Winter Green.
Mosborough Reds, beaten 3-0 by Hollybush and, despite goals from Sam
Wheeler, Laurence Badger and Khalid Muhrez, Norton Oaks were beaten 4-3
by Stannington Rangers to go
out, while Sheaf House will try again next week after their game was
OCT – CBC PREMIER –
and Earl produce a classic and Legion stun the champions –
Joker Wickersley and Royal Earl shared the points and ten goals in what
could be the game of the season with Ben Thornton’s hat-trick for Joker
not quite enough as Earl hit back with doubles from Connor Chapell and
Alex Rippon. Joker took the lead in just five minutes when Matt Godley’s
long ball was flicked on for James Hardeman to beat the keeper from just
inside the area, but Earl soon levelled when they were awarded a penalty
and Connor Chapell scored from the spot. Joker soon went back in front
when Thornton’s cross was hammered home by Nathan Taylor and five
minutes later Thornton (far left) bagged his first from the edge of the
area. Thornton headed his second from a Hardeman cross to give Joker a
4-1 half-time lead.
Straight after the break Chapell scored his second and Joe Turner made
it 4-3. Alex Rippon (2nd left) then rounded the keeper before slamming
the ball into the net to draw Earl level, but a long kick from the Joker
keeper found Thornton and he lobbed the Earl keeper to complete his
hat-trick and put Joker back in front. It wasn’t enough though as Earl
hit back yet again with Rippon heading in at the back post to make it
5-5 and complete the scoring in a terrific advert for the league well
refereed by Tony Tierney.
Stannington Village fell to a second successive defeat as early leaders
Chapeltown RBL came from behind to win 2-1 with two late goals.
Stannington took the lead when Lee Johnstone won the ball in midfield
and fed Joel Purkiss who struck a great 25 yarder into the roof of the
net. The second half didn’t start well for Legion when Elliott Simpson
needed a lengthy delay for a head injury, but they began to get more
into the game and only three saves by Stannington keeper Nathan Ryan
kept them out. Stannington almost doubled their lead twice but Luca
DeFalco was thwarted by a good save by Legion keeper Lewis Fox and
Johnstone had another effort cleared off the line by Adam Todd. With
just five minutes left Connor Tongue’s (right) whipped corner evaded the
front post and Dave Millen crept in to equalise. That gave Legion all
the momentum and when substitute Ahmed Tahar marked his debut by
breaking from midfield to beat the keeper it sparked great celebrations.
The victory means that Legion kept their perfect league record to go 5
points clear at the top.
Eckington climbed three
places with a 3-0 victory over a Woodman Intake still searching for its
first top flight point. Eckington went ahead midway through the first
half when Joel Cousins closed the keeper down and the ball fell kindly
for him to pass the ball into an empty net and just a few minutes later
Owen Ryan was played through for him to beat the keeper and double the
lead. They wrapped up the victory in the second half when Ryan was
tripped in the area and Tom Gambles scored from the spot.
Both FC Inter and
Sheffield Sixs are still searching for their first win after they drew
2-2 with each other. Sixs took the lead when Joe Pearson’s free kick was
headed home by Tommy Davies, but ten minutes later the Sixs keeper lost
the ball and Mazin Ali levelled the scores. Another Sixs error allowed
Mazin to give Inter a half time lead and it looked like they would hold
onto it until the second minute of added time when Liam Davies scrambled
home the equaliser.
OCT - TWENTYTWO LEAGUE CUP –
goes international with P&O’s Arvia ship Captain Camby –
The draw for Round 2 of the Blades Super Draw League Twentytwo Cup went
Robert Camby, the captain of P&O’s newest cruise ship Arvia, made the draw
in the port of Marseille. Despite being in charge of one of the world’s
largest ships, Captain Camby was more than happy to take time out to
conduct the draw with the help of League Chairman Keith Firminger. The
draw saw two all-CBC Premier ties, WB Peasant at home to holders
Oughtibridge WM and Sheffield Sixs at home to Eckington, but one
non-Premier side is certain to proceed to the quarter finals as Division
One Southey Social host Division Two Wadsley FC. League newcomers Steel
City Dons have the daunting task of a visit to Royal Earl, as does another
newcomer, AFC Wisewood as they entertain Joker Wickersley Youth CC. League
champions Stannington Village have a home tie with WH Crookes and Woodman
Intake are also at home against Jubilee Rangers. FC Inter travel to free
scoring Division 1 side Mosborough Lions.
OCT – SUNDAY SUNDAY CUP –
have a magnificent 7 through –
The Blades Super Draw League will have 7 teams in the last 32, after just
3 fell in the 2nd Round. Stannington Village came from behind
to beat fellow CBC Premier side Sheffield Sixs 4-1. With 5 players out
injured, Sixs could only field a bare 11 and it was one way traffic for
all of the first half with only a Charlie Hobson missed penalty 15 minutes
in and heroics from the Sixs keeper leaving it goalless at half time. The
second half started as the first played out only for Sixs to take a
surprise lead when George Utley’s cross was met by Joe Lowe’s incredible
looping header in a rare attack. The game resumed as it had with Village
pressing for an equaliser and it came only 5 minutes later when Jack
Holmes met a great cross from Charlie Hobson to bury his header in the
corner. The pressure on Sixs continued so it was no surprise when Jack
Haslam, Shaun Flynn & Danny Smith all came off the bench to find goals 2,3
and 4 finishing well after some good passing moves.
Earl with doubles from Steve Brammer (left) and Sam Fewkes and a Connor
Chapell penalty won 5-0 at Garrison, as did Chapeltown RBL at Carpenters
Arms as Jed Phillips double took him to 9 for the season. Legion scored
the first half’s only goal when a returning duo linked up, with skipper
Josh Savage cutting back for Mikey Vella to finish. Dave Millen doubled
the lead just after half time after a good ball by Elliott Simpson, and
Simpson was the provider again this time for Jed Phillips after 68
minutes. Phillips grabbed his second with a superb volley, and the scoring
was completed by Morgan Cowell after a pass from Adam Simpson.
Joel Cousins hit two for Eckington in their comfortable 5-1 win at Todwick
Villa. The opener came after good play on the right hand side found
Cousins in the middle to slot home. Todwick equalised with a quick break,
but Eckington re-took the lead in the 31st minute when the keeper fumbled
the inital header and Cousins took advantage. Eckington extended the lead
in the 57th minute when a long throw into the box bounced on the penalty
spot for Mitch Walker to fire home and they added a 4th in the 73rd minute
when a corner into the box was prodded home by Alister Haydock from close
range. Pat Stothard added a 5th in the 82nd minute when another long throw
into the box fell to his feet to strike home from 10 yards.
Helped by two Oliver Currie goals Woodman Intake proved just too hot for
Swinton Ring O’Bells. Jack Heald and Kain Murphy also netted for Woodman
to give them a 4-2 victory in a very close tie that saw Woodman take more
of their chances. Connor Platts also netted twice along with a Luke
Needham strike as Oughtibridge WM won 3-0 at Maltby Main. Joker Wickersley
went through after their opponents failed to field a team, but FC Inter
went out by a single first half goal at Birdwell Rovers, and despite a
Robert Farrell strike, WB Pheasant went out 3-1 at a strong Queens United.
OCT – DIVISION 1 –
topple the Tower to extend their lead at the top –
Boynton Sports had a comfortable win at Water Tower to extend their lead
at the top to five points as second place AFC Dronfield drew 2-2 at 3rd
place Jubilee Rangers.
Boynton went 1-0 early through Marc Peacock at a corner before Richie
Atkins made it 2-0 after some excellent team play. Lee Jordan rocketed in
a 3rd just before half time and Liam Halshaw scored just after the break
before Nathan Davies made it five with a neat finish after coming off the
entertained AFC Dronfield and the game started cagey with both sides
keepers making good saves, but Brendon Reid Flanagan broke the deadlock
with a cool left foot finish to give Jubilee a half-time lead. The second
half started with Jubilee failing to take more chances and it was
Dronfield that levelled through a glancing header from skipper Aaron
Ellis. Ross Dawson then produced a left footed finish to put Dronfield in
front with just 10 minutes left on the clock, but Jubilee upped the tempo
and their pressure finally paid off when Alfie Smith rose highest to
equalise with 2 mins left.
The game of the day came at Sheffield South who, with the help of a Luke
Howson treble came from 3 down at half time to win 6-4 against WH Crookes
who also had a hat-trick scorer in Charlie Dixon. Henry Adam and two from
Dixon gave Crookes that half-time lead, but South hit back with Howson’s
hat-trick, two from Jim Pollard and one from Ryan Phillips. Dixon
completed his hat-trick with a penalty to briefly bring Crookes level, but
there was no stopping South.
Alex Moth also hit a hat-trick as Mosborough Lions roared to their first
league win of the season, 7-0 victory over Sheaf House. Dan Beech, Mike Parker,
Sam Midgley and Max Howard were the others on target for the Lions.
Southey Social also gained their first win of the season with a narrow 3-2
victory over Mosborough Reds.
Southey took the lead after 5 mins when Ryan Whitneys through ball was
turned into his own net by a Mosborough defender. Southey then lost keeper
Jamie Parkin to injury and centre back Todd Guest went into the net, but
it didn’t stop them extending their lead when Jamie Hopkins rounded the
keeper and slotted home. Elliot Fox made it 3-0 after just 15 minutes when
he fired home at the 2nd attempt from 15yds, but Mosborough then pulled
one back before half-time with a Danny Howson header after Southey failed
to clear a corner.
Southey defended well in
the second half to keep the pressure off stand in keeper Guest until
Mosborough got a second with a Billy Kitching header with 10 mins left.
They mounted further pressure but it was Southey that had the best chance
to finish the game off when the Mosborough keeper denied Keanen Wainwright
when he was clean through.
OCT – DIVISION 2 –
just see off Green to stay top –
The Division 2 leaders Cueball
kept top spot with the help of two Dylan Goff strikes to beat an unlucky
Winter Green 3-2. Jack Cawthorne netted Cueball’s other, but it was an
improved performance by
Winter Green and they might have had more than the goals from Logan
Liggins and Tyler Doman.
Brunsmeer AJW stayed hot on their heels as two Gaz Murdoch strikes and one
each for Liam Hannah and Charlie Clark saw them inflict a first defeat of
the season for Wadsley FC
4-0. Wadsley keeper Tom Archer saved a penalty to keep the score at 1-0
and they had an ‘equaliser’ disallowed by the referee. Wadsley had the odd
chance in the second half but Brunsmeer keeper did well held on to his
Despite two goals from Michael Blythen, Cotts dropped down the table with
a shock home defeat 4-2 by Steel City Dons’ first win of the season. Two
goals from Ben McDowell along with one from Lewis Duffin and an own goal
finally gave Dons victory in a close game.
Josh Sugden scored twice as Royal Oak (Dronfield) comfortable beat Norton
Royal Oak took any early
lead through Jack Camm before missing a penalty. Sugden then made it 2-0
with a free kick and Oak then added two more before the interval through
Dalton Sikoshna and Ben Emsley. In second half Oak kept up the pressure
with Jordan Webster adding a fifth and Sugden the sixth before Norton Oaks
grabbed a late consolation when a big kick from keeper Shaun Goodare ended
up bouncing through to Ralph Gayle who finished smartly.
Matt Cowen also scored twice in AFC Wisewood’s 6-2 home win over
Chapeltown FC. Thomson
Cartledge, Stefan Hadfield, Kai Overend and an own goal completed
Wisewood’s tally, but the game was much closer than the scoreline
suggests. Josh Cooke and Harry Hurst were on target for Chapeltown, but it
was Wisewood’s terrific counter attacking and superb finishing that was
OCT - TWENTYTWO LEAGUE CUP –
Cowen was a
Wise move –
The only big shock in the League Cup was AFC Wisewood's 5-1 victory at AFC
Dronfield, with recent signing Matt Cowen (right) hitting all 5 Wisewood
Early CBC Premier
leaders Chapeltown RBL went out 3-0 at previous cup holders Joker
Wickersley. A very close first half saw a Nathan Taylor goal for Joker
ruled out for offside and soon after a Matt Claxton header was well saved
by the RBL keeper. RBL also had their moments though with the Joker keeper
saving from Brandon Whitfield and Luis Alfonso-Ferreira. Soon after the
break Joker broke the deadlock when Matt Langley’s corner was headed home
by Claxton at the near post and another Langley corner saw Taylor head
home at the back post to double the lead. RBL sub Adam Todd almost pulled
one back when his header hit a post and Elliott Simpson almost caught the
Joker keeper out with a shot from the halfway line. A third Langley corner
saw Joker make the game safe with Claxton heading home his second of the
game and the centre back’s fourth headed goal in two weeks.
Three ties needed
penalties. WB Pheasant’s visit to Division 1 Boynton Sports started badly
as a defensive mix-up allowed Curtis Priday to put the hosts in front and
they looked on their way to a shock victory when Tom Goodison doubled the
lead, but Pheasant got aa lifeline just before the break with an Elma
Gadour goal. The second half saw Pheasant get well on top and they got a
deserved equaliser with a Dan Callow header. They then had, and missed,
several good chances to win it, so the game went to penalties and it was
Pheasant the came out on top 4-3.
Another CBC Premier side
to win at a Division 1 side 4-3 on penalties was Woodman Intake at
Mosborough Reds. Two Elliott Coles strikes had Woodman in command and it
looked all over when Reds had a player dismissed, but just before the
break good work from Matt Ellis and Adam Lilley led to a penalty and Jak
Hotchin tucked it away. It looked all over again when Harry Walker netted
a third for Woodman, but Reds showed great fight and hit their second when
Danny Howson pulled the ball back for Lilley to fire into the roof of the
net. In the last 5 minutes Ollie Rowan came off the bench and when he
closed the keeper down it allowed him to make it 3-3. Reds keeper Luke
Fogg managed to save one shot, but two misses meant it was Woodman that
Division 1 Mosborough
Lions had better luck after they also drew 3-3 at Division 2 Brunsmeer.
Lions goals came from an own goal, Liam Foulstone and Max Howard, with Lee
Clark, Liam Hannah and Taylor Askham replying for the hosts. It was Lions
that went through 5-4 on penalties.
Village were pushed hard by Div 2 Royal Oak before eventually winning 4-2.
Liam Jones’ neat finish gave Oak a shock lead, but Stannington levelled
just before half time when Jack Holmes slid the ball home. Stannington
took the lead after the break when Sami Eric scored and it looked all over
when Oak were reduced to ten men, but Jordan Thompson equalised with a
header. Stannington went back in front when Joel Purkiss set Sami Eric up
to score his second and in the final minute a Jon Wall cross was headed
home by Luca DeFalco to clinch it for the hosts.
It was a similar story
for Royal Earl before they won 4-2 at Div 1 Sheaf House. An own goal gave
Earl a half-time lead and a Matt Morton strike doubled it, but Ash Wood
and Alex Jones strikes brought Sheaf level. Morton again put Earl in
front, but it took until the final minute for Steve Brammer to seal the
win for Earl.
In one of the games of
the day an Henry Adam hat-trick helped WH Crookes to just come out on top,
5-3, over fellow Div 1 rivals Sheffield South. Adam’s first two put
Crookes in charge, but two Tom Davis goals levelled for South. Charlie
Cope put Crookes back in front only for Jordan Harrison-Rennie to again
level the scores. Cope then put Crookes back in front before Adam clinched
the tie with his third.
Ishaq Bouheraoua also
netted a hat-trick as FC Inter came from behind to beat Cueball FC 6-2,
but Jubilee Rangers had no such drama, with six different scorers giving
them a 6-1 at Chapeltown FC. Alister Haydock netted twice as Eckington
also won 6-1 at home to Water Tower and Connor Platts also scored twice as
holders Oughtibridge WM beat Cotts 5-0, and Brad Howe netted twice and Ben
Southwell once as Sheffield Sixs eased through 3-0 at Norton Oaks.
Southey Social were the
biggest winners of the day, 11-2 at Winter Green. Southey led 5-0 at the
break and although Winter Green looked to be getting back into it with two
Jordan Ratcliffe strikes, but the visitors were too good for them and made

1 OCT - DIVISION 2 –
pip the Dons –
Wadley FC gained their first win of the season with a narrow victory over
Steel City Dons. Dons looked the more likely early on and struck the bar
twice and missed 3 one-on-ones, but it was Wadsley that went ahead with
Jake Young scoring from the edge of the area. Dons grabbed a leveller from
Josh Mellor, only for Young to put Wadsley back in front with his second.
Leon Dearns took it round the keeper to make it 3-1 to Wadsley only to see
Dons keep themselves in the game with a second from Liam Childs, but it
wasn’t enough and Wadsley held on for that first win.
