13 JAN - TWENTYTWO CUP - Samís the man as Royal Earl end Boynton's run - The last of the League Twentytwo Cup cup quarter finals saw Boynton Sports giantkilling run brought to a shuddering halt, 8-1 by Royal Earl. Earl had the tie won by the half time mark as they netted through Sam Smith, Olly Beaumont, Alex Rippon and Jonathan Williams. They added another four in the second half with Smith completing a hat-trick plus additional strikes from Mike Towey and Richard Tootle. Boynton were, by their own admission, never at the races but goalkeeper Adam Martin did manage to get them on the scoresheet with a wind assisted goal kick. The result puts Earl into the semi-finals for the first time along with fellow Division One clubs Forum and Crookes FC, and CBC Premier Handsworth Old Crown.
13 JAN - CBC PREMIER - Pheasant stay on top, but the chasers both win, whilst Wickersley out of the danger zone - CBC Premier Division leaders Wadsley Bridge Pheasant still head the pack in the top flight as they overcame Intake Old Boys 2-1. They took the lead when the Old Boys custodian gifted Joe Slater a chance and he needed no further invitation to open the scoring. The lead was doubled when Lewis Fothergill produced a great run and cross for Adam Askwith (left) to net the second. Jonny Roper pulled one back for Intake with a deflected free-kick five minutes from the end but Pheasant saw it out for another three point haul.
Waiting in the wings for Pheasant to slip up are Redmires, even though they have played a game more. They came away from a testing away trip to Oughtibridge WM having come from behind to record a 2-1 success. Chas Tunnard gave the home side the lead when he converted from a great cross by Wilson Coupe. The same player could have had a hat-trick if he hadnít spurned a one on one and hit the bar in separate chances before a well worked team saw Redmires equalise just before half time through Jon Wall (right). Matt Harrison clipped the Redmires crossbar for a second time in the game but Jake Schofield grabbed the game winner for Redmires with a thunderbolt that ripped into the home net.
Another team waiting for a slip up, but with games in hand, are defending champions Stannington Village as they dispatched a Renishaw Rangers side now seven points from the safety margin. Playing with the wind in that opening half, Stannington took the lead when Lewis Dickinsonís corner was chested home at the far post by Lee Johnstone and then Dickinson himself grabbed the second after good play involving Shaun Flynn and Charlie Hobson. Straight after the interval, Village added a third when Johnstone crossed and Flynn volleyed in for a landmark century of goals for the club. The scoring was complete when Johnstone again turned provided and Dickinson drilled in his second of the game past Renishaw stand-in keeper and top scorer Robin Holmes.
Norton Sportsman and Woodseats Club stay mid-table after shaking hands and sharing a 2-2 draw. Tom Brightmore opened the scoring for Club when they took advantage of a quickly taken free-kick to net, but Sportsman levelled straight after the interval when Montelle Kamara (left) reacted first after the Woodseats keeper could only parry his initial shot. The former Renishaw Rangers striker was again in the thick of it and it was he who was upended for a penalty which Brad Bowland netted from for Sportsmanís second. Club ensured a share of the spoils ten minutes from time, when Russ Westby netted from a set piece.
The last CBC Premier Division game saw a home success as Wickersley recorded a 4-0 victory against bottom placed Chapeltown RBL. Brad Carroll had setup Joe McGuinness for the gameís opening goal before Legionís task became even harder on the ten minute mark when stalwart goalkeeper Joe Hindmarch was dismissed for a professional foul as Carroll broke clear. Ben Thornton and Kris Lee-Green added further first half goals as the home side made the numerical advantage take effect and the win was secured when Carroll netted the fourth made one of the many second half chances count.
13 JAN - DIVISION 1 - Top two both beaten and Oaks A move up - Division One leaders Forum suffered what was only their second league loss of the season when Cobden View produced a superb home performance to win 3-2. Cobden opened the scoring early in the game when Ben Bell was brought down in the area, and Adam Beresford made no mistake from twelve yards. The home side continued to assert their control and after creating numerous chances, Tim Pitt (right) flicked home the second from a corner. After Forum had come out more determined in the second half, Cobden produced a sweeping team move which resulted in Calum McCrury tucking away number three. Joseph Thompson and player-manager Jamie Smith pulled goals back for the leaders but Cobden held on for a fantastic victory.
Moving into second place are Crookes FC as they leapfrogged previous incumbents Cotts FC 3-1 as they, like Forum, look for a second successive promotion. Daniel Flynn scored a brace and Joel Purkiss added another to give the home side the points; with Jon Dolan scoring Cottsí sole response. Norton Oaks A edged past a Mosborough Reds side still looking for their first win of the season, John Rossiter with the sole strike that divided the sides, whilst Norton Oaks B and Southey Social were goalless in their game.
13 JAN - DIVISION 2 - Sweet revenge for Sixs, and Whites move up, but Colley and Woodhouse stalemate - Itís looking good for Sheffield Sixs in Division Two as they remain six points clear at the head of it after coming from behind to see off Woodseats Chantrey 7-1. Chantrey are the only team to have beaten Sixs so far this season and despite Chantreyís plans being disrupted before kick-off when their regular keeper was taken ill and caused a reshuffle they made the perfect start when Aaron Wattsí looping ball over the top was collected by Luke Simmonds who lobbed the Sixs keeper. Sixs looked determined to make sure they didnít slip up a second time and Liam Davies equalised for after sixteen minutes and after that the home side never looked back with Danny Barnsley and forty-seven year old Simon Howe (left) both scoring hat-tricks.
Mosborough Whites consolidated their second place with a 6-2 home win over a Cadbury side who, despite playing their best football for a while, are slipping away from the promotion race. Luke Walker and Jack Bennett both scored twice, whilst Chris Calcott and Levi Williamson also netted. Cadburyís efforts came from Dan Kelly and Ben Bottomley. With Boynton in Cup action, Colley could have gone third but they had to share the spoils with Woodhouse Juniors in a 2-2 draw. Faisal Miladi gave Colley the lead with a well taken far post finish after a great team move but Woodhouse levelled with a similar one of their own, Dan Lockwood converting. Leon Cheslett put the visitors ahead and it looked like being the winner until Danny Parker smashed in a ferocious effort five minutes from time that even a Woodhouse defender couldnít keep out on the line.
Shakey gave Wadsley Horse and Jockey an uncomfortable ride as they recorded a 3-2 success against them. Lewis Smith and Reece James scored for Jockey but they were unseated by efforts from Wesley Fidler, James Marston and game winner Tom Fullelove whilst Shakey custodian Tom Jeffries also saved a Jockey penalty. Civil Sports and Brinsworth Phoenix shared the points and six goals in the divisionís final game at Green Lane, Lewis Yates bagging a hat-trick for Civil whilst Daniel Commander, Brad Beedham and Jack Hawkes hit the back of the net for Phoenix.
9 JAN - Woodseats Chantrey set for Radio Sheffield - At the start of 2019, Radio Sheffield launched a new feature on their Football Heaven show which adopts a grassroots team each weekend to be their TEAM OF THE WEEK and this weekend it is our Division Two outfit, Woodseats Chantrey. Radio Sheffield will follow their progress this weekend and afterwards do a live chat on their Football Heaven show. Chantrey's currently injured goalkeeper James Rossey will first be on Football Heaven tomorrow, Thursday, between 6:15 & 6:30 and this will then be followed up with a further interview after the team has played, probably the following Tuesday, 15 Jan. This is an opportunity any club can take advantage of - all you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org with details about your team, including a contact phone number, to get involved.
Redmires could take top spot in the CBC Premier if they take a three point haul at Wickersley but the visitors need points to pull themselves away from the drop zone and are sure to give the home side a test. Also facing a test are Stannington Village as they go to Woodseats Club side that has led the table this season. Intake Old Boys should pick up a win against Renishaw Rangers whilst Norton Sportsman should do likewise against Chapeltown RBL. Handsworth Old Crown need points for survival but Oughtibridge WM wonít make it easy.
Forum will be hoping to put their loss to Cobden View behind with an expected home win over Norton Oaks B whilst relegation threatened Southey Social could give second placed Crookes FC a surprise if they bring their A-game to the fore. Royal Earl should be too strong for Mosborough Reds, Civil Sports A could shock promotion challenging Cotts and there could be goals galore when free scoring Ranch entertain Cobden View.
Sheffield Sixs will be hoping to be too sweet for hosts Cadbury as their promotion charge continues unabated whilst second placed Mosborough Whites have a tough ask when they go to Beighton Magpies. Colley will fancy their chances at the unpredictable Shakey and Boynton will be hoping to put a Twentytwo Cup disappointment behind them as they travel to the equally unpredictable Brinsworth Phoenix. Woodhouse Juniors will be most peopleís favourites to take three points off Civil Sports B and Wadsley Horse and Jockey could get past the winning post first if they see off Woodseats Chantrey.
