29 OCT – CBC PREMIER – Earl topple 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 home.

Elsewhere, 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.

James 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 his goal.

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.

29 OCT – DIVISION 1 – Southey and 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.

Mosborough 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.

Royal Oak (Dronfield) climbed three places as a Callum Sugden treble helped them to a 5-1 victory at Winter Green. Sugden gave Oak took an early lead from the penalty spot and although there was chances at both ends, it was the only goal in the first half. The second half saw Oak take control and as well as Sugden completing his hat-trick, there were also goals from Jack Larrisey and Jordan Webster before Winter Green grabbed a late consolation  when Tyler Doman scored for the fourth consecutive game.

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 – Sam’s 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.

22 OCT – CBC PREMIER – Sixes 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 the bar.

22 OCT – DIVISION 1 – Atkins 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.

22 OCT – DIVISION 2 – Cueball 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.

15 OCT – SUNDAY TROPHY – Goals 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.

Tim 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 postponed.

15 OCT – CBC PREMIER – Joker 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.

Champions 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.

8 OCT - TWENTYTWO LEAGUE CUP – The draw goes international with P&O’s Arvia ship Captain Camby – The draw for Round 2 of the Blades Super Draw League Twentytwo Cup went international as 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.

8 OCT – SUNDAY SUNDAY CUP – Blades 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.

Royal 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.

8 OCT – DIVISION 1 – Boynton 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 bench.

Jubilee Rangers 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.

8 OCT – DIVISION 2 – Cueball 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 clean sheet. 

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 Oaks 6-1. 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 the difference.

1 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 goals.

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 went through.

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.

Champions Stannington 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 it double figures with a Jamie Hopkins hat-trick, two each for Ryan Witney, Roan Heeley and Keanen Wainwright, and one each for Dalton Birchall and Morgan Kelly.

1 OCT - DIVISION 2 – Wadsley just 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.
