21 JAN - CBC PREMIER - Snow is the big winner - Most games in the CBC Premier were postponed due to flooded or frozen pitches and even the one that started, Handsworth Old Crown against leaders Wickersley, only made it to the twenty minute mark before snow made it impossible to continue. The sides were level at 1-1 when the decision was made, Tom Smith having netted for Handsworth and Ainsley Finney for Wickersley.

DIVISION 1 - Snow is the big winner - Two games out of six made a start in Division One but unfortunately neither finished. Colley and their visitors Norton Oaks B were goalless when their game succumbed to the snow after just ten minutes; whilst Southey Social and Cotts lasted until half time before the snow also claimed this fixture with the sides level at 2-2. Todd Guest and Josh Sugden put Southey into a two goal advantage only for Cotts to rally with goals from Ben Green and Luke Kingswood.

DIVISION 2 - Pemberton penalty rescues Forum  - The only fixture that survived came in Division Two with Forum and Mosborough Reds sharing six goals and a point apiece. Scott Williams gave Mosborough the lead just after the half hour but Josh Gibson equalised for Forum a minute later. Five minutes after the restart a Joe Harris penalty restored Mosborough’s lead but Forum were level again five minutes later thanks to Gibson’s second of the morning. An own goal made it 3-2 to Mosborough with eighteen minutes left but Forum were awarded a penalty with a minute to go which James Pemberton converted for a 3-3 final scoreline. It was the first time that  second place Forum had dropped points at home and although Mosborough Reds lost the lead three times their point was enough to move them up a place to third.

20 JAN - February Fixtures and Referees now listed - The Fixtures and Referees for February 2018 are now listed in the Fixtures section. All home teams MUST make sure that their home pitch is available on all the dates shown. Please email Keith immediately if your pitch is not available on a date shown.

All home clubs must also confirm the details with your referees and opponents for all dates shown IMMEDIATELY. The home clubs should later (the Tuesday before the game) ring the referee to make sure the referee has got all the details.

Please email Keith immediately if any of the referees tell you they cannot do the fixture listed. Matches without referees must still go ahead and, if you have not been allocated a referee by the date of the game, the two clubs must agree on a stand-in 'referee' between them. Keith will still be working to gain more referees, so if you find one yourself, will you let Keith know immediately please.

14 JAN - Steelers call it a day - After struggling for players all season, Division Two Steelers have finally decided to resign from the League. Their efforts to continue despite their struggles were appreciated by the League and we are sorry to lose them. All the results, goals and goalscorers for both them and any opponents they've played will be removed from the tables and goalscorers.

14 JAN - SUNDAY SENIOR CUP - Intake bow out - Intake Old Boys brilliant run to the quarter-final of the Sunday Senior Cup is unfortunately over as they came unstuck in their tie against Wombwell Main. The Barnsley based side recorded a 4-0 victory over the Old Boys and could face another of our sides in Redmires when the draw for the semi-finals is made. Despite their loss, Intake can be rightly proud of their efforts.

TWENTYTWO CUP - Holders see off Oaks again - In the last of the Twentytwo Cup quarter finals, Cup holders Handsworth Old Crown repeated their victory of last season's final over Norton Oaks to land a place in the semi finals for a third time, and they have gone on to win the cup on both the other occasions. Two set-pieces gave Crown a two goal half time advantage thanks to David Sills and Jordan Stocks. A third followed from David Haggerty before Oaks rallied with a reward from a long range effort from Alan Mowforth. Buoyed by this, Oaks continued to push but were hit on the break by Crown with James Leesley scoring their fourth. A curling effort by Mowforth, his second of the game, brought Oaks within two again but that was as close as they could get  and Crown ran out 4-2 winners. Action from the game is below - pictures by Mick Moat.

CBC PREMIER - Daughtrey at the double to keep Wickersley top - Over to domestic action now, and Wickersley still remain at the head of the CBC Premier after overcoming close challengers Killamarsh Juniors 2-0. Adam Daughtrey gave Lewis Carder’s leaders the lead with a cool finish from a Cory Goodwin pass which he slotted home with confidence. The same player doubled the lead with a well-executed chip over the Killamarsh goalkeeper, and it could have been more if his team-mates had brought their shooting boots with them.

Staying in touch are Wadsley Bridge Pheasant as they recorded a 2-1 win against a very stubborn Penistone Church. Pheasant took the lead after a scramble in the box which saw Luke Beedham get the decisive touch and the advantage was extended when Dylan Parrott (left) finished powerfully after a long throw was flicked on by Beedham. Penistone came more into the game after that and reduced the margin to a single goal when Ben Matthews took advantage of a mix up in the home defence, but Pheasant held on.

Current CBC Premier champions Stannington Village got back to winning ways with a 3-0 home win over a Woodseats Club side still in the relegation zone. Bill Green (right) gave them a lead when he smashed a shot into the roof of the net and it was doubled when a Shaun Flynn corner was only cleared as far as Alex Torr who netted with a shot into the bottom corner. Lee Johnstone hit the Woodseats bar as Village continued to dominate and the points were secured when a long ball from Cory Mann was collected by Arnie Grayson and he finished well.

The final CBC Premier game came at Green Lane where Redmires and hosts Civil Sports A shook hands on a 1-1 draw which didn’t help either side’s bid to climb the table. A superbly taken effort by veteran Gary Eades gave Civil the lead and it was a lead they looked to hold until ten minutes from time. Tom Whiting was sent tumbling in the Civil penalty area, and former Civil striker Andy Bath assumed responsibility to level up from the spot.

DIVISION 1 - Bowland hits five as Sportsman go top, while Chapeltown go second - With the withdrawal of Steelers the League table saw quite a few changes. Taking over at the top are Norton Sportsman as they defeated a very plucky Colley 10-3 despite starting slow out of the blocks. Brad Bowland (left) plundered a first half treble as Norton went into the interval 6-0 ahead with Jack Waymouth, Callum Firth and James Archer also on target. Colley provided more of a game in the second half and got their rewards with goals from Christopher Onjia, Josh Buxton and a header from Faisal Miladi. However, Norton scored more goals of their own too with Bowland adding two more to go nap, and strikes from Waymouth (his second of the morning) and Danny Rogers to bring up the double figure haul.

Oughtibridge WM crashed to a 3-0 home loss to a well drilled Chapeltown RBL side that overtook their hosts into second place. Niall Smith’s well taken effort gave Legion the lead and their cause was helped further when David Booth was red-carded for a late challenge on Jed Phillips, reducing the home side to ten men after just quarter of an hour. Joe Long didn’t waste any time in taking advantage of the numerical change, racing clear to slot the ball past the advancing keeper for Legion’s second. In the second half Oughtibridge pushed on but couldn’t breach the visiting defence and the game was sealed when Danny Cardwell’s corner was bulleted home by Joe Wadsworth with an unstoppable header.

Matt Jacobs gave Ranch the lead at Norton Oaks B and they continued to control proceedings there as a Joe Denby double and one from Tyrone Gunter put them four goals ahead, making debutant Scott Birch’s strike for Oaks nothing more a consolation. John Mellor (right) gave Southey Social the lead at his former club Brinsworth Phoenix, but Joe Keighley levelled on his debut for the home side, however Southey came away with the points when Todd Guest scored a superb winner from just inside the area. Joe Taylor gave Civil Sports B the lead at Cotts but their bid for a first win of the season was derailed in the second half as Luke Kingswood and Kieran Patterson scored for the home team to ensure they would take home the three points .

DIVISION 2 - Civil treble keeps Jockey on top  - Seven days ago, Forum FCCO dismantled Division Two leaders Wadsley Horse and Jockey with a 7-1 win but Jockey got their own back in the return as they recorded a 6-3 victory. Sam Civil scored a hat-trick for the home side whilst Danny Barnsley, Danny Bent and Aaron Statham also netted against Forum whose goals came from player-manager Jamie Smith, Josh Gibson and Jav Sherratt.

Closing in on Forum are Crookes FC as they saw Woodhouse Juniors 5-1 thanks to a Liam Cartledge treble and further goals from Andy Parkin and Liam Morris, Woodhouse’s sole response coming from Luke Simmons. Just behind Crookes on goal difference are Mosborough Reds after a 10-1 against Crookes and District although it took them until ten minutes before half-time to breach the home defence. Joe Harris scored four for the Reds whilst additional goals came from Josh Smith with two, Ash Hotchin, Luke Fogg, skipper Jak Hotchin and an own goal. The sole Crookes & District goal coming from new signing Frank Koroma.

Two goals in the opening eight minutes proved enough for Boynton Sports against a battling Woodseats Chantrey, Ross Thompson opening the scoring after just forty-three seconds and Jake Ballinger adding the second. Royal Earl had a good day at the office as they hit nine goals without response against visitors Shakey. Shakey were in with a shout as they only trailed to first half goals from Tom Nolan and Mike Towey but then the roof seemed to cave in the second half as Nolan scored three more, Jake Mason added a double and singles from Steve Brammer and Charlie Myers to record a more comprehensive scoreline. And finally, it wasn’t a sweet day for Cadbury as they succumbed to a 4-0 loss to Mosborough Whites. Danny State scored twice for the Whites whilst Chris Calcott and Brad Gledhill were also on target.

Preview of Forthcoming Games

28 January

The pick of the games in the CBC Premier on the final Sunday in January is Wadsley Bridge Pheasant taking on Killamarsh Juniors. Both teams are chasing down leaders Wickersley so it could be an intriguing game. Leaders Wickersley face a relegation threatened Woodseats Club and will fancy their chances picking up another maximum points haul as should Civil Sports A in a drop zone six-pointer with bottom placed Hallam who have only one win all season. Penistone Church’s trip to Handsworth Old Crown could go either way whilst Intake Old Boys have the ability to surprise Redmires. Stannington Village will be expected to continue their revival at Norton Oaks A side in need of points.

Division One’s pick of the day sees the leaders Norton Sportsman and third placed Woodhouse Village match up together, it has the potential to be a cracking game. Chapeltown RBL will be expected to take the points from their trip to Norton Oaks B as should Southey Social from an away trip to Colley. Oughtibridge WM will be seriously fancied to defeat struggling Civil Sports B but Brinsworth Phoenix and Cobden View could end up in a draw.

Finally in Division Two, the stand out game is leaders Wadsley Horse & Jockey hosting third placed Crookes FC - a game that either side could win, but a draw might be the best outcome. There should be home wins for Boynton Sports, Mosborough Reds and Royal Earl as they entertain Shakey, Woodhouse JFC and Cadbury respectively. The final game sees bottom placed but ever plucky Crookes & District take on a Mosborough Whites side one place above them which should go the visiting side’s way but if Crookes’ spirit is with them then could take a point.
