26 Sept - Around The Leagues: Falcons Flying

Boroughbridge AFCWith the West Yorkshire League on cups duty at the weekend its the Harrogate & District League that takes centre stage for Around The Leagues this week and it was yet another high scoring weekend in Division One with 30 goals across five ties. Leading the scoring charts one again were high-flying Thirsk Falcons who smashed in eight on the road for the second time in as many games, this time putting Bardsey to the sword, to remain top of the table with a 100% record. Second-placed Addingham sat this fixture block out but there were wins also for third- and fourth-placed Hampsthwaite FC, three one, and Helperby United, five one, respectively. Back briefly to the West Yorkshire League where one game did take place and had big ramifications on the Alliance Division One table, Hunslet Club Reserves one nil winners against Headingley AFC Reserves to climb to the top of the pack.

Into the West Riding County Womens League where it was a day of big scores to nil in the Second Division. Table toppers Skipton Town hit five, Dewsbury Rangers plundered eight to climb to second and Clifton knocked six past 'Bridge for third. There were also wins for Crossley and Farsley Celtic Development both of whom notched their first victories of the season.

20 Sept - John Horner

Boroughbridge AFC wish to send their condolences to the family of John Horner who sadly passed away at St Michael Hospice on Sunday.

Boroughbridge AFC, Leeds Rhinos and Yorkshire Cricket Club were all integral parts of John's life and it is at one of these venues that you were likely to find him after his retirement. John started playing his football at Boroughbridge in the late sixties and was a member of the team that won the prestigious Whitworth Cup for the first time. He was a keen follower of the first team in both the York and subsequently West Yorkshire League and spent many away days with the team.

Over recent years he will be best remembered for the time he spent at Aldborough Road; cutting, repairing and rolling to ensure the pitch was in good condition for the weekend fixtures which was greatly appreciated by all at 'Bridge as well as visiting clubs who rated it as one of the best pitches in the League. A credit to him and a happy memory for us all at this sad time.

The funeral will take place at Harrogate Crematorium at 11 a.m. on Monday 26th September.
19 Sept - Around The Leagues: Hartshead Hit Ten On Free Scoring Weekend

Boroughbridge AFCHartshead were the ones making the headlines on the last weekend before the cups break as goals rippled the nets across the divisions. The mid-table side smashed home ten on the road at Whitkirk Wanderers for reply of just one in the divisions highest away goals tally of the season to climb to seventh in the table. District Cup action occupied three of the top six in the West Yorkshire League Division One and both Wyke Wanderers and Leeds Modernians took full advantage with home victories to close the gap from first to fifth to three points. Modernians' victory came over Otley Town who remain second from bottom of the pack with Whitkirk third from bottom and Thornhill remaining rooted to the base but without a game at the weekend.

If there were goals in Division One then there were goals galore in Alliance Division One with an average of 7.4 goals per game. 'Bridge Reserves' six two win only tied with two other games for highest scoring encounter of the day - Pool AFC Reserves also recorded their first win of the season with a six two scoreline against Headingley AFC Reserves whilst top of the table Robin Hood Athletic Reserves were five three winners against Leeds Modernians Reserves. Into the Harrogate & District League Division One where there is clear daylight atop the table after another thumping win for Thirsk Falcons, eight nil at Beckwithshaw Saints Reserves, whilst formerly unbeaten Addingham lost five two at Bramhope. Third-placed Dalton Athletic were also in action with a three all draw against Bardsey but are already seven points off the top of the table. Atop the West Riding County Womens League Second Division, finally, it's a three-way tie with Amaranth Ladies, Leeds City Ladies and Skipton Town Ladies all victorious at the weekend whilst five teams are yet to get off the mark.
