Scott Driscoll double seals survival for Calverley United

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Yorkshire Amateur League round-up Yorkshire Amateur League round-up

Scott Driscoll scored twice as Calverley United secured their Senior B section status for next season with a 3-1 home win against St Bede’s in the Yorkshire Amateur League.

Gary Trewhitt was also on target as Calverley led 2-0 at the interval on their way to sealing a fifth victory in six games that leaves them a comfortable seventh in the table.

James Gilmartin replied late on for second-bottom St Bede’s, who have much work to do if they are to stay up as well.

Farsley Celtic Juniors remain top after brushing aside mid-table visitors Shire Academics 5-1.

Craig Farrand opened the scoring and then turned provider for Luke Kitson, with Liam Cannon notching the third. Joe Firth, aged just 16, then bagged the fourth and made the fifth for Andy Cooper.

Grangefield OB completed a Senior A division double over mid-table FC Headingley with a 4-1 victory that maintains their pursuit of leaders Gildersome Spurs OB.

Debutant goalkeeper Ben Waller settled in well after his move from Calverley United and, after a goalless first half, Grangefield pulled clear thanks to Andy Kenyon, Luke Hunter, Ritchie Banks and a Grant Jackson penalty.

St Bede’s Reserves almost guaranteed their Division Two safety with a 2-1 home win over basement side Bainbridge.

A penalty opener for Bainbridge caused a few worries but superb finishing from Ross Jones and Admir Zenkovic eased the tension.

Grangefield OB Reserves, who are well behind in their fixtures, picked up a handy 1-1 draw at second-placed Almondburians as they look to stay in the promotion hunt.

Andy Maybank gave the visitors an early lead but this was cancelled out by a penalty, although Almondburians missed a second spot-kick as they looked to snatch victory.

Calverley United Reserves were emphatic 9-1 winners at Division Three basement side East Ardsley Wanderers as they all but ensured they will remain out of the drop zone.

The Calverley hero was 41-year-old Kev Brown, who was called out of retirement and scored five of the goals. Steven Wells (2), Dale Venables and Troy Griffiths backed him up.

Old Batelians climbed to second as a Phil Bryant hat-trick saw off Heckmondwike GSOB 3-0.
