Magnificent seven in knockout action

Places in the last 16 of the West Riding County FA Challenge Cup and Challenge Trophy are up for grabs on Saturday.

Seven West Riding County Amateur League clubs are involved but only one tie is an all-Premier Division affair.

That sees Campion taking on Huddersfield outfit Storthes Hall in the cup at Manningham Mills (1pm).

The Bradford hosts perhaps have a psychological advantage having won 4-1 in the only league meeting between the sides this season.

Tyersal and Steeton both have West Yorkshire League opposition, with the former taking on Keighley-based Oxenhope Recreation at Arkwright Street and the latter visiting Beeston St Anthony’s.

Ovenden West Riding are at home to Manchester League Premier Division side Springhead. Among the Trophy ties, Campion’s reserve side travel to Boroughbridge and Steeton’s second string are also on the road at Rothwell Town.

League action sees Salts away to Premier Division basement side Hall Green United, who picked up their only point to date from a 1-1 draw in the October reverse fixture.

At the other end of the table, leaders Ovenden’s cup involvement is set to see them lose top spot to either Littletown, who are second on goal difference, or third-placed visitors Golcar United, who are two points back.

Midweek result – West Riding County FA Challenge Cup, third round: Brighouse Town Res 2, Wibsey 0.
