2 Mar - Around The Leagues: Leaders Win Big

Boroughbridge AFCThere were big scores in the West Yorkshire Premier Division on Saturday afternoon with leaders and chasers both trying to make a statement about their intentions as teams start to look towards the conclusion of the season. Leaders Field were back on their top form after a narrow victory last weekend, hitting five past relegation candidates East End Park, whilst chasing Bardsey ensured they remain just within striking distance thanks to a six one win over Brighouse Old Boys. Field's lead is now twelve points over Horbury Town, who were in League Cup action, and fourteen over Bardsey having played one and two games more respectively. Draws were the name of the game elsewhere in the division, with a pair of two all draws most notably including Ripon City who held Hunslet Club. City move to within one point of 'Bridge and six points of safety with the result. Into the Alliance Division One where Oxenhope Recreation Reserves regained top spot on goal difference after winning three one while title rivals Leeds City Reserve were being held to a two all draw by Ilkley Town Reserves. The results, coupled with a two one win for Hunslet Club Reserves mean three teams are now separated by just a point atop the table, with Oxenhope and Hunslet having played three fewer games than City. Towards the bottom of the table there were defeats for Aberford Albion Reserves, East End Park Reserves and Brighouse Old Boys Reserves meaning little change in the relegation placings.

Into the Harrogate & District League Division One where all four results went with the form book. Division leaders Hampsthwaite United were three one winners over struggling Burley Trojans, and it was a similar story for fourth-placed Pateley Bridge over bottom of the pack Pannal Sports Reserves, and Bramham over Thirsk Falcons Reserves. Just one game took place in the Claro Sunday League Division One, finally, with Kirk Deighton Rangers stretching their lead atop the table to eight points thanks to a four one win over third-bottom Showbiz Whites.
1 Mar - Result: 'Bridge Handed Barwick Points

'Bridge Veterans gained all three points before even stepping on the pitch at Aldborough Road this afternoon after their fixture with Barwick Veterans was cancelled after the visitors were unable to raise a side. The cancellation means that no football took place at Aldborough Road today following the cancellation of this morning's Sunday team match against Wetherby Athletic last night with 'Bridge unable to raise a side.

28 Feb - Result: Shelley Smash 'Bridge For Six

Boroughbridge AFC were hit for six on the road at Shelley earlier today to fall to within a point of the bottom of the West Yorkshire Premier Division as 'Bridge Reserves suffered a second straight defeat at the hands of Wetherby Athletic Reserves. Daz Ekin's men battled to a one nil half time deficit at Storthes Hall but found the hosts too powerful in the second half and after Josh Garner had converted a 63rd minute penalty the floodgates opened with a further four goals rippling the 'Bridge net in the closing stages of the match. The result leaves 'Bridge mired in the relegation zone with 17 defeats from 21 matches and just one point off the bottom of the table. 'Bridge Reserves, meanwhile, fell to a second straight defeat after visiting Athletic came from behind to snatch all three points at Aldborough Road. Richard Donohoe welcomed Ben Mudd, James Bottomley and Matt White back into his starting XI, and it was Mudd who opened the scoring after just twelve minutes. The visitors had restored parity by the break, however, and a 51st minute goal condemned 'Bridge to a two one defeat which sees them slip a place to sixth in the West Yorkshire Alliance Division One. In contrast to their two more senior sides, 'Bridge's 'A' side's hot run of form continued today as they stretched their unbeaten league run to six games with a three one despatching of Dalton Athletic. Liam Bannard opened the scoring for Neil Greer's men and Luke Hassall and Toby Hardaker had both opened their accounts for the Club before Athletic found a consolation goal on 72 minutes. The result leaves 'Bridge unmoved in fifth in the Harrogate & District Division One. News, finally, that tomorrow morning's Sunday team match against Wetherby Athletic has been cancelled.

23 Feb - Around The Leagues: Field Edge Win

Boroughbridge AFCField stretched their lead atop the West Yorkshire Premier Division back out to nine points on Saturday afternoon as they edged to victory in a bad tempered game at Stoney Lane. The visitors finished the game with 10 men after seeing substitute Tom Ponter dismissed for a straight red, but they would still end the game with a one man advantage to add to their one goal advantage over hosts Brighouse Old Boys who saw one player received a straight red and a second walk for a second bookable offence. Chasing Horbury Town slipped up on Saturday, meanwhile, as a resurgent Wetherby Athletic held Town to a two all draw to climb to fifth in the table, whilst there were also wins for Beeston St. Anthony's and Leeds City in the top half of the table. Arguably one of the most important results came down in the drop zone, however, as East End Park recorded a three one win over mid-table Oxenhope Recreation to move to move from their position level with 'Bridge on ten points to within two points of safety. Into the Alliance Division One where 'Bridge Reserves weren't the only side to concede five with Hunslet Club Reserves slipping to a five one defeat at home to Wetherby Athletic Reserves, who leapfrog 'Bridge into fourth in the table. Wins for Headingley AFC Reserves and Robin Hood Athletic Reserves near the bottom meanwhile mean that five teams now sit within two points of one another with the last of the five occupying the first relegation position.

Goals also flowed freely in the Harrogate & District Division One with the leading due hitting a combined twelve goals on the road. Leaders Hampsthwaite United were five two winners at Thirsk Falcons Reserves whilst chasing Kirkstall Crusaders ensure the stalemate at the top continued in running out to a seven two win at Pateley Bridge who despite sitting fourth in the table have now lost five of their last six. Also victorious at the weekend were Dalton Athletic who remain one point behind 'Bridge and climb to sixth in the table. No games took place besides 'Bridge's in the Claro Sunday League Division One, finally.
22 Feb - Result: Rangers Edge Past 'Bridge

Claro Sunday League Division One leaders Kirk Deighton Rangers kept their league title campaign on track earlier today at Aldborough Road, but were pushed all the way by a resolute 'Bridge side. Ben Clayton and Chris Wood's men fell to a narrow one nil defeat, in stark contrast to the six nil loss when the sides last met just a matter of weeks ago, to remain eighth and second from bottom of the table.

21 Feb - Result: Hepworth Hits Harlow Hat-Trick

Tom Hepworth hit a magnificent hat-trick earlier today as 'Bridge 'A' slotted in five at Harlow Hill Reserves whilst 'Bridge Reserves' unbeaten run came crashing down at Aldborough Road. Hepworth was the hero for Neil Greer's 'A' side who recorded a five one victory at Oatlands Playing Fields to move up to fifth in the Harrogate & District Division One. Steve Warburton joined Hepworth on the scoresheet for the second straight week whilst Stuart Johnstone was also on target with 'Bridge opening up a four game unbeaten run courtesy of the victory which moves them onto 23 points for the season, including eight from their last four games. 'Bridge Reserves, meanwhile, were on the opposite end of a five goal scoreline at Aldborough Road as their nine game unbeaten run came to an abrupt end against visiting Whitkirk Wanderers Reserves. Richard Donohoe's men put in arguably their worst performance of the season to date with consolation goals from Luke Fletcher and Paul Scaife in the result which sees the side slip a place to fifth in the West Yorkshire Alliance Division One.

16 Feb - Around The Leagues: Town Keep Pace

Boroughbridge AFCAfter capitalising on two straight defeats to pull within seven points of West Yorkshire Premier Division leaders Field, Horbury Town kept up the pressure on the top of the table side at the weekend with both teams running out to four goal victories. The division leaders got back to winning ways after consecutive league defeats to Robin Hood Athletic and Bardsey with a four nil win over bottom of the table Ripon City, whilst Horbury fired in six goals at Robin Hood in a six two victory. With League Cup games occupying many just eight teams were in action in the Premier Division on Saturday, with Wetherby Athletic's four nil win over 'Bridge keeping up the high scoring and boosting them to fourth in the table whilst Shelley and Oxenhope Recreation played out a closer game with a two one win enough to lift the latter to seventh. Hunslet Club Reserves missed out on an opportunity to go top of the Alliance Division One table, meanwhile, as 'Bridge's holding Leeds City Reserves to a draw left them able to move ahead on goal difference, albeit for the third-placed side to fall to a three two defeat at East End Park Reserves. The highest scoring game of the day was played out in mid-table as Wetherby Athletic Reserves ran out winners by the odd goal in seven at Whitkirk Wanderers Reserves whilst also victorious in the day's fixtures were Ilkley Town Reserves.

Into the Harrogate & District League Division One where the division's top three shut out their opposition and combined to score sixteen goals at the opposite ends. League leaders Hampsthwaite United were six nil winners over Bramham, as were Kirkstall Crusaders at Kirk Deighton Rangers Reserves leaving Beckwithshaw Saints Reserves to a four nil win at Harlow Hill Reserves. Also victorious were Hampsthwaite FC to move up to sixth in the table and goals also flowed at Burley Trojans as the relegation-threatened hosts played out a four all draw with Dalton Athletic. Kirk Deighton Rangers moved top of the Claro Sunday League Division One, finally, ahead of their trip to Aldborough Road this Sunday, leapfrogging Harrogate CSC into a two point lead. Rangers were five one winners over Wetherby Athletic whilst CSC lost one nil at Sherwood. Markington won six nil at bottom of the table Harrogate Cosmos in the day's other game.

14 Feb - Results: Reserves Grab Point At City

'Bridge Reserves stretched their unbeaten league run to nine games earlier today on the road at Leeds City Reserves as the Club's sides enjoyed mixed fortunes across the day's three games. Richard Donohoe's side fought back to claim a point against Alliance Division One leaders City as Luke Fletcher hit home a late equaliser. The result moves 'Bridge up into fourth in the table, just six points off City at the top. Boroughbridge AFC endured another tough match against local rivals Wetherby Athletic, meanwhile, conceding half as many goals as the last time the sides met but still running out to a four nil defeat which leaves Daz Ekin's men adrift in the Premier Division drop zone having now played two thirds of their league games with a return of just half a point per game. 'Bridge 'A', finally, ensured their slow move up the Harrogate & District League Division One table continued with a three two win over Pateley Bridge at Aldborough Road. Sean Corbett, Steve Warburton and Tom Hepworth were all on target for Neil Greer's men who establish themselves in mid-table as they move up to seventh and take their return rate above a point a game.

9 Feb - Quarter-Finals County Cup Update

Boroughbridge AFCThe possibility of a pair of all West Yorkshire League Semi-Finals in the West Riding County Challenge Cup evaporated at the weekend, but the League is guaranteed a team in the Final after a brace of victories for it's sides. 'Bridge and Oxenhope Recreation could have met in the Semi-Final and completed the quartet of West Yorkshire League teams, but whilst 'Bridge were being knocked out three two by Salts, Oxenhope were falling to the same scoreline at Settle United. The other half of the draw brought better fortunes, however, with Beeston St. Anthony's setting up a Semi-Final against fellow Premier Division powerhouses Leeds City with a three two win over Carlton Athletic whilst City were two one winners over Farsley Celtic Juniors. Three of the County Challenge Trophy ties went to extra time, meanwhile, with West Yorkshire Alliance Division One side Wetherby Athletic Reserves ensuring Semi-Final representation for the League with a four three penalty shootout victory following a two all draw after 90 and 120 minutes. Fellow Alliance Division One side Hunslet Club Reserves were also locked at two all after 90 minutes of their home match against Springhead Reserves but the visitors scored twice in the additional 30 minutes to book their place at County Headquarters along with Honley and Tadcaster Magnets, who only needed 90 minutes to get the better of St. Nicholas. Claro Sunday League representation in the County Sunday Cup, finally, ended on Sunday morning as the League's only remaining side in the competition, Sherwood, suffered a four nil defeat at Ferrybridge Progressive WMC. St. John Fisher Old Boys and Belle Isle WMC also booked their Semi-Final spots with Oakenshaw and HT Sports yet to contest their Quarter-Final.
8 Feb - Result: Vets Hammer Home Six

'Bridge Veterans picked up where they left off last weekend earlier today at Aldborough Road, hammering home six goals for reply of just one to record a victory over visiting Kirk Hammerton Veterans. Marcus Philpott and Andy Layton led the scoring for Paul Stephenson's side, both netting braces, whilst Lee Brook and Richard Donohoe completed the goals with Ian Rayner scooping the Man of Match award.

7 Feb - Results: Lightning Strikes Twice

The last time Boroughbridge AFC made it to within one match of a trip to County Headquarters they were knocked out by an extra time penalty. History repeated itself earlier today at Aldborough Road as a 100th minute spot kick was enough to send Salts FC into a Semi-Final clash with Settle United. Martin Hutchinson struck first for the hosts to give 'Bridge 19th minute lead but the sides went in level at the break after Salts equalised on the stroke of half time. Danny Rimmell then handed 'Bridge the advantage back just seven minutes into the second half but Joe Pleasance set up the prospect of an additional half hour as he watched his corner being flicked into his own net by 'Bridge 'keeper Paul Diamond, before the deliverer of that corner won it for the visitors with a safely converted penalty ten minutes into the first additional period. 'Bridge 'A', meanwhile, picked up their seventeenth point from their opening seventeen Harrogate & District League Division One fixtures with an enthralling two all draw at Bramham. Jack Campbell was first on the scoresheet for Neil Greer's side before Ben Jones opened his account on his return to the Club to secure the point.

Also in action tomorrow afternoon are 'Bridge 'A' who travel to Bramham whilst the following afternoon 'Bridge Veterans host Kirk Hammerton Veterans in a 2 p.m. kick-off.
5 Feb - County Challenge Cup Countdown

Boroughbridge AFCBoroughbridge AFC will this weekend attempt to secure progress to the furthest round of the West Riding County Challenge Cup they have reached in recent years as they welcome Salts FC to Aldborough Road for a Quarter-Final showdown. There is no element of the unknown, however, for 'Bridge Manager Daz Ekin who has twice lifted the trophy before as a player and as a gaffer, and more recently members of his squad have experience both of playing at this level of the competition and against Saturday's opponents. 'Bridge last reached the Quarter-Final stage in the 10/11 season when a Paul Eagling goal forced extra time at Carlton Athletic only for the hosts to convert a late and disputed penalty to progress, whilst 'Bridge and Salts last met in this competition at the first round stage in October 2008. Marcus Philpott gave Ekin's troops a two nil half time lead at Salts Sports Ground but the hosts would hit four second half goals to put the tie out of reach despite Man of Match Martin Hutchinson's late strike. A Semi-Final clash with either Settle United or Oxenhope Recreation awaits the victors of this Saturday's clash, and there'll be more build-up to the tie in tomorrow's Matchday.
4 Feb - Lucky Seven: Tricky's Top 10

Boroughbridge AFCThe Lucky Seven 14/15 crown could still be won by anybody and a score of ten was enough to add ten points to Tricky's league tally last weekend and move him from second bottom of the table to just 14.5 points off the top ten. This weekend's seven include the big County Cup match at Aldborough Road, the Merseyside Derby and the Madrid Derby as well as action from the Irish Cup, Italian Serie A, and Football League.

2 Feb - Around The Leagues: City Take Control

Boroughbridge AFCLeeds City Reserves capitalised on a weather-hit fixture programme on Saturday afternoon to leapfrog Hunslet Club Reserves and take control atop the West Yorkshire Alliance Division One. City recorded a narrow one nil win at Robin Hood Athletic Reserves in one of only three fixtures to go ahead in the division to move two points clear in first put having played three more games than their closest challengers. It was a different story for Oxenhope Recreation Reserves, however, who missed out on a chance to demote Hunslet into third as they lost three two at Wetherby Athletic Reserves, whilst Beeston St. Anthony's Reserves and Whitkirk Wanderers Reserves played out a two all draw in the day's other match. Moving back up the divisions just two games went ahead in the West Yorkshire Premier Division with both ending in two one away victories. Knaresborough Town moved up into mid-table and left the division's bottom four looking increasingly isolated, now a minimum of seven points behind twelfth, with victory at Otley Town, whilst Wetherby Athletic kept up their push for a top four position and left Ripon City rooted to the bottom of the table with a derby victory at Mallorie Park Drive.

There were few surprises in the Harrogate & District Division One, meanwhile, with league leaders Hampsthwaite United stretching their gap atop the table to six points with a comfortable four one win at fourth-placed Pateley Bridge. The points also went with form in the day's other non-postponed match as Harlow Hill Reserves climbed to sixth following a four two result at Kirk Deighton Rangers Reserves, but with the tight nature of the bottom half of the division only sit five points ahead of Rangers despite being five places higher in the table. Just one match took place in the Claro Sunday League Division One, finally, but it was not short of goals as Rangers' Sunday team moved top of the table with an eight nil thrashing of bottom of the pack Harrogate Cosmos.
