Niki Westbury put 'Bridge in the driving seat with a perfect first half hat-trick, opening his account with a right-footed effort before heading home and then volleying in with his left foot.

Boroughbridge AFCField fired five goals for no reply for the second time in the opening three games at the weekend to maintain their 100% start to the season and sink their latest victims, East End Park, to second from bottom in the table. A nil nil draw with Otley Town saw Brighouse Old Boys's perfect start to the season come to an end, meanwhile, as did a three one loss for Robin Hood Athletic at Ripon City. As the place-switching continues early in the season, up into second in the table go Hunslet Club thanks to a three two win at Bardsey, and a one nil win for Knaresborough Town at Horbury Town saw the former up into seventh. Oxenhope Recreation and Leeds City, finally, played out a three all draw. Into the Alliance Division One, where Leeds City Reserves and Beeston St. Anthony's Reserves lost their perfect records leading to a six-way tie at the top of the table. Among the teams tied on six points, Oxenhope Recreation Reserves were one nil winners at Beeston whilst Hunslet Club Reserves moved onto the figure thanks to a three nil win at Field Reserves.

23 Aug - Results: Beeston Pushed, Not Beaten

Boroughbridge AFC came close to opening their West Yorkshire Premier Division account at Aldborough Road earlier today with a close fought three one defeat to Beeston St. Anthony's. After five nil and two nil defeats in their opening two league games, Daz Ekin's men quickly fell behind against visiting Beeston, conceding after just ten minutes. Parity was restored within five minutes, however, as Martin Hutchinson fired home 'Bridge's first goal of the season direct from a free kick just outside the area. From here the hosts enjoyed the better of the first half, but fell behind once again on the stroke of half time to a good strike, low into the right-hand corner from the edge of the area. This handed Beeston the momentum and they enjoyed the better of the second half, adding a third to seal the win deep into stoppage time with 'Bridge pushing for the equaliser. 'Bridge Reserves, meanwhile, opened their Alliance Division One tally with a two one win at Ilkley Town Reserves under the guidance of Dave Snelling. The result moves Richard Donohoe's side off the bottom of the table and onto three points from their opening three games.

18 Aug - Around The Leagues: Home Advantage

Boroughbridge AFCHome advantage was key on Opening Day in the West Yorkshire Premier Division, with home sides triumphant in five of the seven fixtures. It was a day of tight scorelines of the most part, however, with just two teams winning by multiple goals. Field installed themselves top of the table with their five nil win over 'Bridge, whilst Beeston St. Anthony's also made an early statement of their intentions for the season with a seven three win over Ripon City. Just one other match saw more than three goals on Saturday, but Oxenhope Recreation's win over Horbury Town was much closer being only by the single goal with four three the final result. Elsewhere, defending champions Bardsey got their title defence off to a faltering start with a two one defeat at Brighouse Old Boys and there were one nil wins for Otley Town and Premier Division newcomers Robin Hood Athletic. Shelley and Hunslet Club played out a one all draw with Leeds City and Knaresborough Town not in action.

If home advantage were the key in the Premier Division, away advantage ruled in the Alliance Division One, meanwhile, with five of seven games ending in an away win. Last season's Alliance Division Two champions Whitkirk Wanderers Reserves bucked the trend and were the day's biggest winners with a nine one home win over Headingley AFC Reserves. Fellow Alliance Division One newcomers Ilkley Town Reserves didn't fare as well, losing four nil to Beeston St. Anthony's Reserves, whilst goals also flowed freely as Leeds City Reserves won four two and Hunslet Club Reserves won three two. The day's games with the least goals still saw three a piece, as Brighouse Old Boys Reserves won three nil at Aberford Albion Reserves to sit fourth in the table, and Wetherby Athletic Reserves won two one.

Four games took place in the Claro Sunday League Division One, finally, with goals a plenty again. The seven goals scored in 'Bridge's trip to Atlanta were added to by six in each of the other three games, with Kirk Deighton Rangers five one winners over Markington to sit top of the table, Harrogate CSC four two winners at Harrogate Cosmos, and the points split in a three all draw between Wetherby Athletic and Sherwood. Goals were at a premium in Division One compared to the league's lower divisions, however, with an average of just over twelve a game in Division Two and 90 scored in total in ten games across the league.
17 Aug - Result: Atlanta Sink 'Bridge In Opener

'Bridge Sunday came close to recording the Club's first league win of the season earlier today but fell just short in the end with a four goal to three defeat. Luke Fletcher bagged a brace in blustery conditions on The Stray, whilst Paul Scaife was also on the scoresheet. The result leaves Ben Clayton and Chris Wood's side seventh in the opening Claro Sunday League Division One table.

9 Aug - Pre-Season: Stanley Too Strong

Visiting Stanley United were too strong for 'Bridge's Reserve side as Pre-Season 2014 continued earlier today. A late and skilful volley from Paul Scaife on the edge of the area offered a consolation to Richard Donohoe's men, but did little to change the overall result with Stanley running out to a four one win. The visitors opened the scoring on the stroke of half time having enjoyed the better of the first half, and despite an improved passing performance from the hosts after the re-start three further goals from United put the game beyond 'Bridge. On the road at Pannal Sports XI, meanwhile, 'Bridge 'A' opened their pre-season campaign with a three goal to one defeat. Wayne Fisher contributed the 'Bridge goal with a cool finish from an Ash Richardson cross on 74 minutes, but with the score already two nil to the hosts it acted only as consolation with Pannal adding a third before the final whistle.

4 Aug - MP Cuts Ribbon On New Facilities

Boroughbridge AFC were honoured to be able to welcome Andrew Jones, MP for Harrogate and Knaresborough, and other distinguished guests to Aldborough Road on Friday evening for the official opening ceremony of the Club's new changing room complex and associated facilities. Jones cut the ribbon in front of around 50 guest to open the new facilities which have been over a year in the works and almost four years in the planning. The evening opened with a speech by Chairman Andrew Willey and a presentation on the works carried out, and following the ribbon cutting guests were invited to take a tour of the facilities which as well as the new changing complex include new pitch side barriers, a new path from the clubhouse to the main stand and a refurbishment of the existing changing facilities.

The works have taken place with the support of a sizable grant from the Football Stadia Improvement Fund as well as a long-running fundraising effort from the Club. The opening marks the end of a process that began back in October 2010 and ensures that Boroughbridge AFC can meet the FA Step Seven guidelines now required by the West Yorkshire League.

Whilst elements of the project have been in use for some time now, Boroughbridge AFC entered the new changing room complex for the first time on Saturday as they welcomed Headingley AFC to Aldborough Road in a Pre-Season 2014 clash, running out to a six one victory. A gallery of pictures from the opening ceremony can be viewed by clicking here.
2 Aug - Pre-Season: Soaked 'Bridge Smash Six

Boroughbridge AFC recorded a brace of wins against visiting Headingley AFC earlier today at Aldborough Road, with Daz Ekin's troops smashing home six to record victory in emphatic fashion. 'Bridge were quick out of the blocks against ex-Reserve gaffer Elliott Sheeran's new side, with Danny Smith opening the scoring on thirteen minutes after directing home a Martin Hutchinson free kick. Craig Peacock added the second 24 minutes in with a long range strike that was misjudged by the visiting 'keeper to sail through his arms and into the back of the net, before Hutchinson fired home from close range just two minutes later to send 'Bridge in three goals to the good at the break. The skies opened soon after the re-start, but the sodden pitch didn't slow the home side's progress with Mullenger grabbing his first from inside the area just seven minutes into the half. Mullenger added his second shortly after the hour mark after tapping home a Jake Fletcher cross, before completing his hat-trick and taking his side's tally to six on 77 minutes. Having rarely troubled Mike Davis in the 'Bridge nets all afternoon, Headingley gave him no chance in grabbing a 90th minute consolation goal, but it did little to alter the final result with 'Bridge putting in a good performance for their win.

Earlier in the day, meanwhile, the clubs' two Reserve sides opened proceedings, with the end outcome the same albeit with Richard Donohoe's men having to work harder for the win. It was the visitors who started the brightest, and opened the scoring by firing home with less than ten minutes on the clock. Three quick goals in a five minute spell before half time gave 'Bridge the lead, however, with Paul Scaife rounding the 'keeper and tapping home to restore parity in the 35th minute and Luke Fletcher hitting home from close range in the 39th minute before Scaife grabbed his second less than a minute later with a well hit long range effort from the left wing. The second half brought no further goals with a late downpour providing difficult conditions for the players.

As previously reported, the now annual pre-season fixture will once again be contested for the Sadie Rose Charity Cup and in memory of Sadie Rose Clifford. All money raised on the evening will go to support NCCA UK, a charity committed to helping families affected by the childhood cancer neuroblastoma. You can find out more about the NCCA by visiting their website, or donate online by clicking here. Kick-off tomorrow will be 7.30 p.m. at Manse Lane.
21 Jul - Headingley Double-Header To Headline

A double-header of matches against Headingley AFC will form the headline fixtures of Pre-Season 2014 as 'Bridge get set to launch into their preparations for the 14/15 West Yorkshire League campaign. Daz Ekin and Richard Donohoe will lead their troops into battle against former Reserve team gaffer Elliott Sheeran's new club on Saturday 2nd August, with a match between the two clubs' first teams supplementing the previously announced Reserve clash. Headingley AFC, formerly Old Headingley, will line-up as one of sixteen teams in West Yorkshire Division One this season after a seventh place finish last term, whilst Headingley AFC Reserves will be a direct league rival of 'Bridge Reserves this season following Donohoe's men's promotion back to the West Yorkshire Alliance Division One, masterminded by Sheeran, last season.
