24 Nov - Around The Leagues: Claro Drama

Boroughbridge AFCThe West Yorkshire League saw limited action at the weekend with the vast majority of Premier Division sides engaged in League Cup action, meaning 'Bridge's two one win at East End Park took centre stage as the only league game, whilst Field were the other side not in League Cup action as they represented the West Riding County against Thornton Cleveleys FC, running out to a comfortable four one victory. Action was also limited in the Alliance Division One, meanwhile, with only three fixtures in total but there was still important results at the top of the table with Hunslet Club Reserves slashing Oxenhope Recreation Reserves' lead atop the pile to a single point with a two one win at Headingley AFC Reserves which coupled with Recreation's defeat at Aldborough Road. Big winners in the day's third game were Leeds City Reserves who hit double figures against struggling East End Park Reserves, and there was no shortage of goals in the Harrogate & District Division One either with 35 hitting the nets across six games. Two games saw eight goals with Kirkstall Crusaders moving up into second at the expense of Beckwithshaw Saints Reserves thanks to a six two away win for the former and five three away defeat for the latter. Also amongst the goals were struggling Thirsk Falcons Reserves who were six nil winners over Harlow Hill Reserves who drop to eleventh in the table to make way for Dalton Athletic and AFC Hillside, both of whom notched three points. Finally in the Claro Sunday League Division One where the biggest drama of the weekend was found, not for the goals that hit the net but for an incident between a player and a referee at Ings Lane. In the day's other two games Atlanta ran out to a three two win at the expense of bottom of the pack Harrogate Cosmos, whilst league leaders Harrogate CSC were held to a three all draw at third-placed Kirk Deighton Rangers.

22 Nov - Results: Reserves Rack Rec. Result

Boroughbridge AFC Reserves racked up three points against West Yorkshire Alliance Division One leaders Oxenhope Recreation Reserves with an emphatic three nil win in the feature match at Aldborough Road this afternoon. Richard Donohoe's men scored two goals in four late first half minutes as first Connor Freeman opened the scoring in the 34th minute before Paul Scaife converted from the penalty spot in the 38th after Harry Maltby was brought down. Scaife added his second in the 57th minute to seal the points which see his side up two places to eighth in the table.

Boroughbridge AFC enjoyed an equally successful day on the road at fellow relegation threatened side East End Park. Ross Mardon opened the scoring for Daz Ekin's men in the 23rd minute but after being reduced to ten men on the stroke of half time 'Bridge saw their lead eliminated just before the hour mark as the hosts restored parity. Mike Mullenger, however, scored an 80th minute winner to leave 'Bridge now trailing West Yorkshire Premier Division survival by five points. 'Bridge 'A', meanwhile, battled back from two nil and three one down to pick up a point against Burley Trojans at Aldborough Road with Steve Warburton, Tom Ekin and Kyle Wall all on the scoresheet.

17 Nov - Around The Leagues: Strugglers Win

Boroughbridge AFCThe weekend saw limited action across the West Yorkshire League, but wins for three sides struggling near the bottom of their respective divisions across the West Yorkshire and Harrogate & District Leagues. District Cup action dominated the West Yorkshire Premier Division at the weekend, with just two games taking place besides 'Bridge's defeat to Wetherby Athletic. On the move upwards were Robin Hood Athletic, up to eighth after a four one win at Otley Town, whilst Bardsey pulled a point back on Field atop the table but dropped two as they were held to a two all draw against Horbury Town. Two postponements, meanwhile, saw the Alliance Division One's slated five match billing reduced to just two fixtures other than 'Bridge's draw, with wins for the two teams at the base of the table. Bottom of the pack Aberford Albion Reserves bagged their first three points of the season with a two one victory at Leeds City Reserves, but remain four points behind the team ahead of them after East End Park Reserves ran out to a four one result at Brighouse Old Boys Reserves.

A full set of seven matches took place in the Harrogate & District Division One on Saturday afternoon, with Hampsthwaite United climbing back atop the table at the expense of Beckwithshaw Saints Reserves. United, who dropped from the top spot last weekend, regained the divisional lead with a one nil win against Dalton Athletic and dropped points for Saints in the form of a four three defeat at third-placed Bramham. Down at the bottom of the table, meanwhile, Thirsk Falcons Reserves climbed off the base with their first win of the season, three two over Burley Trojans, a result which demotes Pannal Sports Reserves to the bottom spot after they lost three one at Pateley Bridge. Kirkstall Crusaders and AFC Hillside played out a three all draw at opposite ends of mid-table.

15 Nov - Results: Rampant Athletic Smash Eight
[Updated 16 Nov - Scorers added]

Wetherby Athletic ran riot at Aldborough Road this afternoon as Boroughbridge AFC crumbed to their biggest defeat of the season so far. Fresh off the heels of a six one loss to league leaders Field last weekend Daz Ekin's side shipped eight for no reply to a determined Athletic side who sit just above the afternoon's hosts in the West Yorkshire Premier Division. The result leaves 'Bridge increasingly isolated in the relegation places, eight points from safety as the half-way point in the season nears. 'Bridge Reserves, meanwhile, picked up a creditable one all draw at Whitkirk Wanderers Reserves, whilst the 'A' team halted their slide in form with a hard fought three one victory over a Kirk Deighton Rangers Reserves side whom had beaten 'Bridge twice in the cups earlier this season. Neil Greer's side move onto seven points and into third from bottom in the Harrogate & District League Division One table.

Boroughbridge AFCThree of the West Yorkshire Premier Division's top five sides combined to hit home seventeen goals for reply of just two on Saturday in an afternoon of high scoring in the games that went ahead. Whilst two of the scheduled seven fell to the weather, Field's lead atop the table grew to nine points after Beeston St. Anthony's smashed home five against second-placed Bardsey to move up to fourth in the table. Also amongst the goals were fifth-placed Leeds City who were six one winners against bottom of the pack East End Park. Horbury Town remain in sixth with a three nil win over Otley Town whilst Hunslet Club remain seventh but dropped points on the teams ahead of then after being held to a two all draw at Robin Hood Athletic. Goals also hit the net at a high rate in the Alliance Division One, with five of the seven games seeing five or more goals, and eight goals finding their way home in the game between Field Reserves and Robin Hood Athletic Reserves, the former the six two victors. 'Bridge Reserves' match was one of three to see seven goals with fifth-placed Wetherby Athletic Reserves six one winners at struggling East End Park Reserves and Leeds City Reserves winners by the odd goal in seven at Brighouse Old Boys Reserves to move up to sixth.

The Harrogate & District League Division One kept the high scoring pattern alive, meanwhile, with another eight-goal thriller taking place as Kirk Deighton Rangers Reserves beat bottom of the table Thirsk Falcons Reserves six two. Atop the table, meanwhile, Beckwithshaw Saints Reserves moved up into pole position by a single point as they beat leaders Hampsthwaite United five two, whilst in mid-table there were also wins for Harlow Hill Reserves, Pateley Bridge and Dalton Athletic to leave the sides eighth, ninth and tenth respectively. Finally in the Claro Sunday League Division One where just one game took place other than 'Bridge's, with Markington missing out on a chance to cut Harrogate CSC's lead atop the table to three points as they fell to a four nil defeat at Atlanta.

3 Nov - County Cup Round-Up

Boroughbridge AFCWest Riding County Cup action dominated the majority of 'Bridge's leagues at the weekend limiting play to just a handful of matches, and thus this week's Around The Leagues has been replaced with a round-up of the biggest headlines from across the County Cups. Besides 'Bridge's trip to Mallorie Park Drive, arguably the biggest match of the weekend saw defending County Challenge Cup winners Field host defending West Yorkshire Premier Division champions Bardsey, with the visitors progressing into the Third Round with a narrow three goal to two victory. The biggest scoreline of the County Challenge Cup Second Round also came from a West Yorkshire League side as Beeston St. Anthony's fired fifteen past FC Headingley for no reply, whilst Knaresborough Town were the next highest scoring side in their eight one victory at Shelf United. Of those also likely to feature at a later stage in the competition Leeds City were pushed the furthest in having to resort to playing 120 minutes in order to despatch Huddersfield Amateur, with three goals in added time delivering a six three victory. City's tie was one of four to go to extra time with no penalty shootouts.
In the County Challenge Trophy, last year's defeated finalists Honley progressed safely with a two nil win over AFC Horsforth, whilst the only side to reach double figures were Gildersome Spurs Old Boys in a ten one defeat of Leodis. Of the teams more familiar to 'Bridge, meanwhile, Beeston St. Anthony's Reserves exited the competition with a four two defeat to Golcar United Reserves, but progression was achieved by the likes of Oxenhope Recreation Reserves, Hunslet Club Reserves, East End Park Reserves and Whitkirk Wanderers Reserves. The County Sunday Cup also saw it's fair share of action, finally, with three sides hitting double figures on their way to a place in the Third Round. Beeston St. Anthony's Sunday almost matched their Saturday counterparts in a thirteen nil win at FC West Leeds, Belle Isle WMC hit eleven for reply of just one against Original Oak, and Thornton United fired in ten for reply of three against Ventus United. Of those expected to challenge come the end of the season, defending winners HT Sports progressed with a five three result at Prospect, last season's defeated finalists Ferrybridge Progressive enjoyed a narrow two one win at Barwick Sunday, West Bowling were nine two winners at Saltaire Rangers, and closer to home Kirk Deighton Rangers exited the competition after a four nil defeat at much fancied Chapeltown Fforde Grene.
2 Nov - Results: Grass Is Greener For 'Bridge

'Bridge Sunday progressed into the Third Round of the West Riding County Sunday Cup earlier today at Aldborough Road, despatching Bradford Sunday Alliance League opponents Grass Greener United by seven goals to one.

Paul Scaife added a brace with Wayne Fisher also on the scoresheet and an own goal completing the seven. 'Bridge will travel to Heavy Woollen Sunday League side Birkenshaw FC in the Round of 32 on Sunday 7th December. 'Bridge Veterans, meanwhile, played out a one all draw with Leeds Partizan Veterans this afternoon with Marcus Philpott on target for Paul Stephenson's men.

1 Nov - Results: 'Bridge Best City In Thriller

Boroughbridge AFC progressed to the Third Round of the West Riding County Challenge Cup earlier this afternoon at Mallorie Park Drive with a four goal to two victory after an oscillating encounter. Both managers predicted fireworks in the build-up and 'Bridge gaffer Daz Ekin was the first to light the touch paper with his side exploding out of the blocks, racing into a two goal lead in the opening six minutes with Stephen Coles and Mike Mullenger both on target. As the game evened out, however, ex-'Bridge talisman Ben Jones drew his side back within one before restoring parity for ex-'Bridge 'keeper Alastair Hogg's side by the half time marker. The hosts enjoyed the better of the early second half chances but couldn't find a breakthrough against an in-form Paul Diamond and Ross Mardon fired in the winner nine minutes from time with an unfortunate City own goal completing the scoring. 'Bridge will welcome Campion FC of the West Riding County Amateur League in the Third Round of the competition in early December after they ran out winners against Storthes Hall, also by a four to two scoreline.

After a five nil defeat last weekend, meanwhile, 'Bridge Reserves got back to winning ways in emphatic fashion with a reversal of the scoreline against Brighouse Old Boys Reserves in the feature game at Aldborough Road. Harry Maltby opened the scoring after 37 minutes to give Richard Donohoe's side a one nil half time lead before two goals in as many minutes from Scott Barnes and Aaron Weinhardt mid-way through the second half put the hosts firmly in the driving seat, with a late Paul Scaife brace adding a gloss to the scoreline. 'Bridge 'A', finally, exited the Harrogate & District League Challenge Cup with a ten one defeat to Knaresborough Celtic. Neil Greer's side restricted the high-flying Premier Division outfit to a solitary goal half time lead but couldn't prevent the visitors hitting home eight in the second half to make sure of the result.

24 Oct - 'Bridge Proud To Support Poppy Appeal

Boroughbridge AFCBoroughbridge AFC will be supporting the poppy appeal over the coming weeks by donning poppies on their shirts during matches in remembrance of those who have fallen in conflict. Both of the Club's West Yorkshire League sides wore the poppies during last weekend's District Cup matches and following the launch of the 2014 poppy appeal on Thursday all four of the Club's sides in action this weekend will wear the poppy every weekend until Remembrance Sunday. This year sees the centenary of the start of the First World War with special events already having taken place to commemorate the anniversary, including the filling of the dry moat at the Tower of London with 800,00 ceramic poppies as well as the launch of a new protection programme by national charity Fields in Trust, in collaboration with The Royal British Legion, called Centenary Fields which will protect recreational spaces including memorial gardens and parks from development into perpetuity. To mark this milestone, 'Bridge's premier side will be wearing a special anniversary poppy featuring a 1914-2014 design, which can be seen modelled below by members of Daz Ekin's squad ahead of last weekend's fixture. 'Bridge Manager Ekin hailed the move by the Club to support the appeal as "a massive positive", adding that "the Army lads have always been a major player in Boroughbridge Football Club and I think it shows our appreciation of them. It's a two way thing as well, I know the lads feel very proud to wear the poppies and we'll carry on wearing them for the next few weeks".

18 Oct - Results: 'Bridge Rue Missed Chances

Boroughbridge AFC were left to rue a series of unconverted opportunities earlier today at Aldborough Road as they were outflanked by visiting Beckwithshaw Saints over the course of 120 minutes before being resoundingly beaten from the penalty spot. Daz Ekin's men endured a poor first half against their lower league opponents and fell behind after just thirteen minutes after a long range lob took a freak bounce over the head of the advancing Paul Diamond and into the back of the net. It took until stoppage time for parity to be restored as Ross Mardon broke and fired under the Saints 'keeper but despite an improved showing from the hosts in the second half neither side could find a way to break the deadlock, with 'Bridge seeing an effort saved on the line as well as a fingertip save from the visiting 'keeper whilst Saints came closest as they were denied by a one-on-one save by Diamond. As 'Bridge continued pushing forward Mardon spurned a golden opportunity to give his side the lead seven minutes into extra time as he fired over from close range, whilst the hosts were again denied inches from the line in the second period of the additional half hour. After an oscillating encounter over 120 minutes, the shootout was anything but with Beckwithshaw taking just three spot kicks to wrap up the match and progress into the next round, converting their three whilst seeing 'Bridge miss one and have two saved by an in form Saints 'keeper.

'Bridge Reserves, meanwhile, enjoyed a more positive afternoon on the road at Ripon Red Arrows in advancing into the next round of the Hulme Cup after a four three victory. The top of the table Arrows side provided tough opposition for Richard Donohoe's men, with goals from Paul Scaife, Harry Maltby, Stephen Coles and Ashley Richardson sealing the victory by the odd goal in seven in a close encounter. The bid by 'Bridge 'A' to repeat their run to the Final of the same competition last season came to an end, finally, at the hands of the same side that ended their Intermediate Cup hopes just seven days ago. Kirk Deighton Rangers Reserves took a three nil half time lead at Aldborough Road, eventually running out to a five one victory with 'Bridge's consolation courtesy of Liam Corbett.
