St Bede's Old Boys recover from early setback to defeat Pudsey Grangefield Old Boys
St Bede's Old Boys' manager Wayne Kinsella was ecstatic after his side won 3-2 at Senior A Division leaders Grangefield Old Boys in the Yorkshire Amateur League's Terry Marflitt Cup first round.
Grangefield went ahead after 90 seconds but midway through the half an 18-yard volley from Ian Horrocks restored parity.
A Jonny Hicks header in the 55th minute and a deft finish from James Gilmartin on the hour gave Bede's a 3-1 advantage that was only tarnished by a 90th-minute reply, Grangefield's goals coming from Andy Kenyon and Kevin Brown. Bede's will now host FC Headingley.
Newcomers AFC Heckmondwike are in Division One but still managed to defeat previously unbeaten Senior A side Alwoodley 4-2 on penalties.
Heckmondwike took an early lead thanks to Joe Green from 18 yards but Alwoodley had drawn level by the interval, although AFC did have two key players injured.
The hosts survived a Graham Shaw penalty miss in the 75th minute but finally conceded in the second period of extra time.
However, they rallied, Scott Ryan heading a timely equaliser before keeper Richard Stanley saved two vital spot-kicks in the shoot-out, man of the match Scott Ryan stroking home the all-important penalty.
Off-colour Gildersome Spurs just managed to keep visitors Morley Town at bay 4-3. Goals for Spurs came from Matty Jackson (2) and Steve Wales (2), while running Spurs close were Jovan Kioseff (2) and Ryan Hartley.
Division One Farsley Celtic Juniors were unfazed by a two-division gap in winning 2-1 at Bramley Juniors Old Boys.
Bramley went ahead through a Jamie Smith tap-in but Jonathan Kasher equalised before the interval and Ben Cook netted in the second half to give Celtic a home tie with Batelians.
Despite taking an early lead, Calverley were overcome 5-2 b y Gildersome Spurs Reserves in the Hancock Cup first round, with Gary Stockdale, Mikey Durham, James Wilby, Jason Hardcastle and Stephen Ball the Spurs marksmen, Matty Hall and Steve Wells replying.
Jonny Harrison (2) and Sam Russell provided the ammunition for Grangefield Old Boys Reserves to defeat brave Middleton Park Reserves 3-2, while Ealandians Reserves led 3-0 before St Bede's Reserves staged a great fightback to win 6-3, with Jordan Northin (3) and substitute Jerome Yewdall (3) ensuring a tie with holders Medics Reserves.
Sam Thorpe (2), Ash Brookes (2) and Mark Bedford gave Grangefield III an easy ride into round two of the Hodgson Cup with a 5-1 defeat of Huddersfield Amateur III, while goals from Kris Balodis, Warwick French and George Nash secure the St Bede's III a ticket to Old Modernians III.
