|16 Jan - Around The Leagues: Hartshead Clear
A packed programme of action across the leagues at the weekend saw Hartshead move four points clear atop the West Yorkshire League Division One. A four nil win at Old Centralians, their seventh win in a row, stretched the advantage atop the table with second-placed Hall Green United in League Cup action, albeit with five league games in hand over their rivals. Third-placed Kippax were also victorious, by the odd goal in seven against Otley Town who remain bottom of the pack, but fourth-placed Leeds Modernians suffered a three nil home defeat to Aberford Albion. Towards the bottom of the table Whitkirk Wanderers put clear daylight between themselves and the drop zone with a two one win over second-from-bottom Swillington Saints who have now picked up just one point in their last six.
Beeston St. Anthony's Reserves remain top of the Alliance Division One but there's a new name in second place after Leeds City Reserves moved Robin Hood Athletic Reserves down into third place with a five two win at Wakefield Road. None of the bottom three were in action, allowing fourth-from-bottom East End Park Reserves to pull level with Horbury Town Reserves on 14 points as they defeated Town four two. Just three games went ahead in the Harrogate & District League Division One as Thirsk Falcons moved ten points clear atop the table following a seven two win at Dalton Athletic, whilst there were also wins for Bardsey and Beckwithshaw Saints Reserves in the bottom three. Only one game went ahead in the West Riding County Womens League Second Division, finally, as bottom of the table Amaranth Ladies lost ten nil to Farsley Celtic Ladies Development.
|14 Jan - Result: Clough Claim Victory
Boroughbridge AFC fell to defeat at Aldborough Road this afternoon as a spirited second half display saw visitors Howden Clough to all three points. A 19th minute Joel Fireman goal set Daz Ekin's men on their way and it was all square at the interval. Russ Robshaw added 'Bridge's second in the 75th minute but a further double from Clough sent them to victory. 'Bridge Reserves' trip to Brighouse Old Boys Reserves and the 'Bridge 'A' game against Bramhope, meanwhile, were both postponed due to frozen pitches.

Three of the Challenge Cup's eight matches were settled on penalties whilst five of the eight victors came from the West Yorkshire League's ranks. Beeston St. Anthony's and Carlton Athletic, third and first in the Premier Division, both joined 'Bridge in the Quarter-Finals without having to resort to spot kicks by despatching Ealandians and Campion Reserves respectively. They were joined by Sherburn White Rose, fifth in the Premier Division, who overcame a trip to Lower Hopton six five on penalties and Robin Hood Athletic, ninth in the Premier Division, who were four three shootout winners over Alwoodley. Of the three remaining sides to book their places in the Quarter-Finals draw, two ply their trade in the West Riding County Amateur Premier Division. Salts overcame Horbury Town two one whilst Steeton were four one winners at Littletown. Completing the draw is the lowest ranked side left in the competition - Halifax & District Premier Division outfit Ryburn United who knocked out Leeds City Rovers three two on penalties. The ties will be drawn and played on dates to be announced.
Sixteen teams, meanwhile, remain in the Challenge Trophy but unlike the Cup there are only two West Yorkshire League representatives entering the fifth round of the competition.

'Bridge Reserves' win over Robin Hood Athletic Reserves meant Beeston St. Anthony's Reserves remain top of the Alliance Division One at Christmas without having to kick a ball, whilst allowing the sides immediately below to catch up ground. Leeds City Reserves climbed to third with a two nil win and Oxenhope Recreation Reserves move up to fourth thanks to a five one result, all of which meaning the top five is now separated by just four points heading towards the New Year.
