By Ian Robinson at The Asda Foundation Stadium
On an afternoon with winds of more than 50mph and driving rain in the Aire Valley, both teams and referee did well not only to play this North West Counties League Reserve Division game, but to also put on such a great advert for reserve team football.
The game kicked off a few minutes later than advertised, due to no appointed referee being available, but come what may, the ever reliable Pete Hanson was quickly moving from pay box manager, to the man in the middle with the whistle.
Bronte Wanderers Res 4 Hunsworth Res 7
Rye Bailey struck twice – one from near the halfway line, the other from a free-kick – and Ross Greenaway and Munzir Nazir once each to give Bronte a 4-2 lead in their West Riding County Amateur League match.
But the visitors hit back to score five times without reply to earn all the points.
Steeton Res 6 Campion Res 3
Mark McGee grabbed a hat-trick as Steeton enjoyed a rampant West Riding County Amateur League victory in the Summerhill Lane rain.
Dan Petty grabbed a brace with John Spurr completing the half-dozen.
Manager Clark O’Dwyer said: “The conditions were dreadful, really wet, but we showed great team spirit and desire.
“Sixteen-year-old Ryan Narey made his debut and looks a tremendous player in the making.”
Oxenhope Rec Res 2
Aberford Albion Res 0
Oxenhope made it 14 games unbeaten in the West Yorkshire League to remain at the head of affairs in the Alliance Division Two.
They held a two=goal advantage after just 20 minutes but try as they might could not find that elusive third goal to kill off the game against a spirited Aberford second string.
Both Oxenhope’s goals came via the penalty spot converted by Chris Day.
Carlton Athletic 3
Oxenhope Rec 4
Oxenhope continued their recent successes in this season’s cup competitions by adding the scalp of Carlton Athletic, who are eight places above them in the West Yorkshire League Premier Division.
This League Cup win was all the more convincing because Oxenhope had four of their regular first-team players missing, but player-manager Mark Bentham has the luxury of being able to call upon the services of a strong second team squad.
Campion 2 Steeton 1
Lee Reilly was on target for Steeton in their West Riding County Amateur League Premier Division defeat.
His early strike in the second half put the visitors ahead but a wonder goal and a disputed free-kick from Andy Benjamin saw the hosts take the points.
Manager Roy Mason said: “The lads gave me everything again but we are just not getting the breaks at the moment.
“We know the tide will turn if we keep working this hard.”

AFC Emley Reserves 2 Bronte Wanderers 2
Two lapses of concentration cost Bronte a West Riding County Amateur League victory on a bitterly cold night at The Welfare Ground.
All three points looked to be heading back north until home substitute Craig Wood slammed home an equaliser in the second minute of stoppage time. The Bronte defence had allowed a high cross to bounce twice in their penalty area, fluffing attempted clearances.
It was tough on Bronte who had played some fine passing football after withstanding a concerted home charge in the opening 20 minutes.
Silsden manager Chris Reape is hoping he has some key players back from injury for the journey to St Helens Town in the North West Counties League Premier Division tomorrow.
