Boroughbridge AFC ended life in the West Yorkshire Premier Division on a low this afternoon with a three one defeat to Hunslet Club.

Boroughbridge AFCBoroughbridge AFC's relegation to the West Yorkshire Division One was confirmed this evening as Brighouse Old Boys beat Oxnehope Recreation three one. The victory for Brighouse against the newly crowned West Riding County Challenge Cup winners leaves them eleven points clear of 'Bridge who have just three games remaining at the league's top table. With just three wins from 27 league games this evening's result is a confirmation of the inevitable for Daz Ekin's men, who have spent much of the season in or around the division's relegation zone, and brings to an end a stay in the West Yorkshire Premier Division of over a decade.

The draw leaves Richard Donohoe's men with seven wins, eight draws and eleven defeats from their 26 matches this season with a negative thirteen goal difference, enough to place them eighth in the table at this moment. Coming into the day 'Bridge could still in theory have been relegated, with teams below yet to complete their seasons, but with other results today the lowest Donohoe's side can now finish is tenth. In the West Yorkshire Premier Division, meanwhile, a draw between Brighouse Old Boys and East End Park leaves 'Bridge still in with a mathematical chance of survival, but a three nil win for Ripon City against Shelley sees Daz Ekin's side drop to the foot of the table with three games remaining.

At the bottom of the table the race for safety remains alive for East End Park after a three two win over Knaresborough Town coupled with a three one defeat for Brighouse Old Boys against Robin Hood Athletic to move East End to within a point of Brighouse having played the same number of games but with an inferior goal difference. Into the Alliance Division One where Oxenhope Recreation Reserves took a step towards the title as their closest rivals dropped points.

18 Apr - Results: Relegation Edges Closer

Boroughbridge AFC inched closer to life in the West Yorkshire Division One earlier today with a five goal to one defeat at Oxenhope Recreation. A 17th minute Jake Fletcher goal was the sole high-point of the afternoon for Daz Ekin's men who must win all of their remaining three matches in order to stand a chance of survival. Defeat for Brighouse Old Boys against Robin Hood Athletic today meant 'Bridge were not relegated, but their fate could be sealed if Brighouse beat either Oxenhope on Wednesday or East End Park next Saturday, or 'Bridge lose at Ripon City next weekend. 'Bridge Reserves, meanwhile, saw their slump in form continue with a fifth defeat in six against Robin Hood Athletic Reserves at Aldborough Road. Paul Scaife was on target for Richard Donohoe's side on the stroke of half time, but couldn't prevent the defeat which sees 'Bridge remain eighth in the table with one league game remaining. News, finally, that tomorrow afternoon's York Corinthians League Play-Off clash between 'Bridge Veterans and Wakefield Veterans has been cancelled.

13 Apr - Countdown To Closing Day

Boroughbridge AFCWith the last match of 'Bridge's season now only little over a month away the countdown to Closing Day is well and truly on, with the number of matches for the Club's teams collectively down into single figures. Boroughbridge AFC will finish their season the latest of the Club's sides, and also have the most games remaining with four fixtures standing between them and Closing Day on 16th May when Hunslet Club will visit Aldborough Road. Also yet to be faced for Daz Ekin's men are Oxenhope Recreation, Ripon City and Brighouse Old Boys, all of which are away fixtures and with City and Brighouse both in and around the relegation battle. It may all count for nothing, however, with 'Bridge trailing survival by eight points with four games remaining meaning that defeat at Oxenhope coupled with victory for Brighouse against Robin Hood Athletic this Saturday would see Ekin's side's relegation confirmed.

For 'Bridge Reserves the season will be over before May has even begun, with this Saturday's clash with sixth-placed Robin Hood Athletic Reserves the penultimate Richard Donohoe's side will face, and final home game of the season. 'Bridge will need to outscore Whitkirk Wanders Reserves by two points over the remaining games to take seventh in the table, and the final chance to grab that top half finish will come at Field Reserves on 25th April. 'Bridge 'A', meanwhile, face no more Saturday fixtures with just two evening matches standing between Neil Greer's side and the conclusion to a successful first season in the Harrogate & District League's Division One. The visit of Bramham at Aldborough Road tomorrow evening will round out the home campaign, and may play a pivotal role in deciding 'Bridge's final league position, with title chasing Kirkstall Crusaders the final away day of the season. Bramham currently sit three points behind 'Bridge in the table but with four games in hand in the battle for fifth. For the Club's Sunday sides the Claro Sunday League season is already over, leaving just 'Bridge Veterans who will try to extend their season this weekend in a Play-Off Quarter-Final against Wakefield Veterans at Aldborough Road. The season will be formally rounded off with he Club's annual Presentation Evening, details of which will be announced in due course.

11 Apr - Results: Lacklustre 'Bridge Dismantled

Boroughbridge AFC suffered a near fatal blow to their race for survival chances at Manse Lane this afternoon after being taken apart by hosts and derby rivals Knaresborough Town in one of their poorest performances of the season so far. Daz Ekin's men started brightly, with Ross Mardon hitting the post as early as the third minute, but it was downhill from that point in and Town opened their scoring just fifteen seconds after Ben Jones had seen a 40th minute effort cleared off the line by the hosts. The deficit was two ten minutes into the second half with Town cutting open the 'Bridge defence and leaving Paul Diamond with little chance at his near post. A bullet header made the Town lead three on 67 minutes and the fourth and final goal came a minute into second half stoppage time as Town cut in from the right and slotted home across goal underneath Diamond. 'Bridge remain fifteenth in the West Yorkshire Premier Division with the defeat, eight points from safety, and could see relegation confirmed as early as next weekend if results go against them. 'Bridge Reserves, meanwhile, were also undone on the road at Alliance DIvision One title favourites Oxenhope Recreation Reserves. Richard Donohoe's men ran out to a five two defeat with a last minute Jack Campbell goal adding to an earlier Luke Fletcher effort for the visitors. 'Bridge 'A', finally, stretched their unbeaten league run into double figures with a narrow three two victory at Burley Trojans. Lewis Barlow bagged a brace and Toby Hardaker was also on target for Neil Greer's side who stay fifth in the Harrogate & District League Division One with the victory.

Falcons, meanwhile, lie down in tenth in the table with seven victories in their opening 22 fixtures. With the two sides yet to meet either home or away in league action this season this Final will represent the first meeting in recent times between the two, but of their visits to Aldborough Road so far this season it was Kirkstall who left the happier with a three one win over 'Bridge 'A' in October as opposed to a six nil defeat for Thirsk back in August. Boroughbridge AFC would like to wish all the best to both Kirkstall and Thirsk and hope that their players, supporters and officials enjoy a safe journey to Aldborough Road on Saturday.

4 Apr - Results: Points Shared After Late Drama

Boroughbridge AFC added a further point to their race for survival campaign earlier today at Aldborough Road, but were denied an important three points after visiting Horbury Town converted a penalty deep into second half stoppage time. Daz Ekin's men came into the match knowing it would be the toughest remaining test in their race for survival and were a goal down within the first six minutes after Town converted a one-on-one chance. Parity was restored on the quarter-hour mark, however, as Paul Scaife hit home direct from a free kick, and 'Bridge went into the break having enjoyed the better of the first half. The hosts remained on top into the second half with substitute goalkeeper Alastair Hogg rolling back the years between the sticks, but without a go-ahead goal. That was until the 88th minute when Aldborough Road erupted as Ross Mardon fired in from long range to give 'Bridge a lifeline in the relegation fight, but Ekin's side would suffer heartbreak deep into stoppage time as referee Matt Sowerby pointed to the penalty spot and Town stepped up to take a share of the points. 'Bridge 'A', meanwhile, stretched their unbeaten run to within a game of double figures with a two all draw with Hampsthwaite FC at Aldborough Road. Phil Wix and Tom Hepworth were both on target for Neil Greer's men who move up to fifth in the table with the point.

The results leave Athletic five points off the lead and keep Recreation three from the top but crucially with four games in hand over their main rivals for the title. One of only two results to go against the form book in the division was the meeting between Robin Hood Athletic Reserves and Field Reserves, with the former recording a four nil win to move up to eighth, whilst there were also wins for East End Park Reserves and Brighouse Old Boys Reserves closer to the bottom of the table.
