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".

The two games that did take place in the Alliance Division One yielded goals in abundance with an average of nine per game. Leading in the scoring stakes were top of the table Oxenhope Recreation Reserves, who subjected sixth place Whitkirk Wanderers Reserves to a ten one defeat, whilst second-bottom Ilkley Town Reserves were surprise winners by the odd goal in seven against Brighouse Old Boys Reserves. Scoring levels were lower in the Harrogate & District Division One with Beckwithshaw Saints Reserves moving up to third thanks to a two one win over AFC Hillside and Hampsthwaite FC up to fifth thanks to a three two win over strugglers Pannal Sports Reserves whilst at the bottom of the table Thirsk Falcons Reserves and Dalton Athletic played out a one all draw.

In the Whitworth Cup, meanwhile, 'Bridge's closest rivals Knaresborough Town and Ripon City both progressed, the former with an eight two result at Hampsthwaite United and the latter with a five one win at Pateley Bridge.

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.

29 Sept - Around The Leagues: Three Of Four

Boroughbridge AFCThree of the bottom four positions in the West Yorkshire Premier Division are now occupied by 'Bridge and it's two closest geographical rivals after Knaresborough Town dropped into the bottom four at the weekend. Town suffered a two one defeat to Wetherby Athletic at Manse Lane to drop to thirteenth, whilst Ripon City were on the wrong end of a seven two result to remain fourteenth just above 'Bridge and East End Park. Up at the top, Field stretched their lead out to nine points with a three nil win over Robin Hood Athletic, whilst it is now Bardsey in second place after their victory over Ripon. Also on the climb were Oxenhope Recreation, up to third, but dropping down the table at the weekend were Leeds City who are down to sixth after a three two home defeat to Otley Town, whom 'Bridge visit this coming weekend. In the Alliance Division One there were big wins for the leading duo against the bottom two with table topping Oxenhope Recreation Reserves slotting home five at Ilkley Town Reserves and second placed Beeston St. Anthony's Reserves hitting nine against Aberford Albion Reserves. Also winning big on Saturday were Brighouse Old Boys Reserves who earned a five nil result over Whitkirk Wanderers Reserves to climb to seventh, whilst there were wins for Wetherby Athletic Reserves near the top of the table and East End Park Reserves near the bottom.

Kirkstall Crusaders FC climbed atop the Harrogate & District Division One meanwhile as they won two nil against Dalton Athletic to move level with Hampsthwaite United, held to a one all draw at AFC Hillside, on thirteen points atop the table. Bramham provide pressure on the leading duo with their two one win over Harlow Hill Reserves moving them to within one point of the top, whilst there were goals in mid-table with Burley Trojans hitting four for no reply against Pateley Bridge and Kirk Deighton Rangers Reserves on the right end of a four two scoreline against Hampsthwaite FC. In the Claro Sunday League Division One, finally, just two games took place with both ending in four one wins for the visiting teams. Harrogate CSC maintain their three point lead atop the table with the win at Wetherby Athletic with Kirk Deighton Rangers steady in second after picking up the result at Atlanta, who fall to eighth on goal difference.
