Bacup hit back to beat Silsden

Silsden 1 Bacup & Rossendale Borough 2
The Cobbydalers, who were hoping to turn their draws into victories, were again unable to build on an early lead. The Borough broke through midway through the second half to equalise before notching the winner late in the game when Ed Hall was left helpless after Matty BRYAN’s free-kick took a deflection on its way into the goal.

Steeton Reserves push high flying Wakefield close.

Steeton logoSteeton Reserves 1 Wakefield City 2
Steeton Reserves were facing Wakefield City who were third in Division One of the West Riding County Amateur League and unlucky not to gain promotion last season having finished third again.
The reserves were in a position to play Arley Barnes and Sam Rooke with both coming back from injury so it was important that they got 90 minutes and with 1st team not having a game Adam Spencer came into the side too. This meant that Joe Mason, Aaron Dickson and Dom Mortimer were on the bench but it had been explained the reasons why and it wasn’t based on their individual performances. Read more »

Broomhill brushed aside for first defeat

Broomhill logoGargrave 8 Broomhill 0
Broomhill suffered their first competitive defeat in a humbling, lacklustre performance against a much better Gargrave side – losing a devastatingly humiliating 8-0 in the Northern Plant Hire Trophy.
The Badgers didn’t recreate their league form and were a completely different outfit to the one who are currently top of their league.
Much improvement is to be made and the management team of Stewart Kinnear and Mick Vickers have made this perfectly clear to the players.
