Matt Tomlinson ‘worldy’ lands quarter-final berth for Grangefield Old Boys
Matt Tomlinson was the toast of Grangefield Old Boys as his long-range strike earned a 1-0 win at Alwoodley in the Leeds Senior Cup.
The 35-yard effort secured a home quarter-final clash with Beeston St Anthony’s as the Yorkshire Amateur League leaders edged out their top-flight rivals.
League action saw Gildersome Spurs Old Boys’ title ambitions suffer a setback as they lost in the Senior A Division for the first time this season, 2-1 at mid-table Ealandians.
Having Danny Moon sent off midway through the first half did not help but it still took 25-yarders from Glynn Haley and Wayne Crossley to breach the Spurs defence, before Matty Jackson pulled one back.
Calverley United maintain their precarious lead at the top of the Senior B section thanks to an 80th-minute Phil Gathercole winner as they nicked a 1-0 win at St Bedes.
Second-placed Old Batelians were being held 1-1 at half-time at home to Beeston Old Boys but pulled clear to win 7-2 after their opponents had a man sent off. Rob Bordman, Stu Otway and Sam Newman scored twice apiece, with Andy Virr completing the rout.
Second-placed Farsley Celtic Juniors saw off Division One title rivals Alwoodley Reserves 3-1 as they gained the upper hand in pursuit of leaders Farnley Sports. A Ben Cook chip, Ryan Collett’s glancing header and a goal by substitute Si McQuiston did the damage.
Farnley slipped up 3-2 at mid-table Leeds Medics & Dentists Thirds after goals from Alex Feben, Andy Fox and Chris Pickering.
Fourth-placed Bramley Juniors OB Res won their sixth consecutive match but left it late to edge out Gildersome Spurs OB Reserves 1-0, with Jordan Webb poking home the winner.
Liam Dowan (2) and Rob Hiscock earned AFC Heckmondwike a comfortable 3-1 win at Huddersfield Amateur Reserves, who dropped to second bottom as a result.
Bramley Juniors Thirds finally secured a first Division Two win of the season as goals from Dean Wood, Michael Hunter and Chris Fletcher accounted for St Bedes OB Reserves 3-0.
Calverley United Reserves logged a sixth consecutive Division Three victory as Steve Wells netted all their goals in a 4-0 victory over Colton Institute Reserves, including three goals in a three-minute spell.
