County Amateur's top pair clash in Division Two
This Saturday was meant to be the last day of the season but due to the snow and ice in early February and the rain over the past three weeks that caused many postponements, the league season has had to be extended into the middle of next month.
Only the winners of Division One (Lepton Highlanders) and the winners and runners-up in Division Three (Littletown and Salts Reserves) have been decided.
However, the destination of the Division Two championship and runners-up berths could be decided this weekend when leaders Albion Sports host second- placed Campion Reserves at Myra Shay (2.30).
Victory for Albion would give them the title, while a draw would leave Campion having to win their final game against West Horton that was postponed last night.
But should Campion win by three goals, they would pick up the championship trophy. Tyersal, who until losing 6-3 at Ovenden West Riding in mid-January were heading for their first Premier Division title, play their final game of the season at home to Storthes Hall.
A win would keep them in second place and five points ahead of Bay Athletic, while their chances of picking up the runners-up shield depend on Bay losing at least two of their final four matches.
Campion, with two games left to play, will be looking to finish as high up the table as possible. On Saturday they visit fourth-placed Kirkburton.
Salts, whose chance to secure the runners-up spot in Division One against bottom-placed Halifax Irish were foiled by the heavy rain last night that made Halifax’s Natty Lane ground unplayable, can only wait to see if Overthorpe, who are visiting Wakefield City, fail to gain at least a point and hand the runners-up spot to them.
With seven County Amateur League sides having won the West Riding County FA Challenge Cup a total of eight times in the past 12 seasons, Lepton Highlanders will be looking to add their name to that list in the final against West Yorkshire Association League side Leeds City tomorrow night at the West Riding County FA ground at Woodlesford, Leeds (7.30).
Bay Athletic are also in cup action when, as the winners of the West Riding County FA Challenge Cup last season, they will be representing the West Riding County FA against the Cheshire FA at Vauxhall Motors in the final of The Northern Counties FA Senior Cup (2.00).
* All matches on Kirklees Council pitches have been postponed this weekend due to the prolonged bad weather, which has led to flooding on some pitches while others are waterlogged and also unplayable.
