GOALS Bradford Sunday Alliance League Championship Division high- fliers Crossflatts Village are through to the quarter-finals of the West Riding County FA Sunday Cup thanks to a 5-2 victory over Wakefield & District Premiership opponents Fryston.

Four goals came from veteran midfielder and man of the match James Gill, while Colin Schofield also scored.

The home side found themselves a goal down in the opening five minutes to Chris Taylor but it was not long before they took the lead thanks to Gill. Flatts then made it 3-1 after Matty Morgan’s free-kick was nodded home by Schofield.

Fryston pulled one back before the interval via Fred Smith but their comeback hopes were dealt a huge blow just after the hour when Gary Hall was sent off for hacking down Michael Garnett.

The impressive Gill completed a deserved hat-trick moments later after excellent play down the right by Schofield.

Flatts completed the scoring in the 89th minute after sublime play down the left from Billy Bailey, who crossed for Gill to wrong-foot Fryston keeper Andrew Sterland with a tidy left-foot strike into the bottom corner.

Player-manager Kevin Gill said: “That was a great performance after an horrendous start.

“It seems ages since we last played, so we had two training sessions last week to help us get our fitness back after Christmas and they paid dividends.

“Gilly was at the top of his game. It wasn’t just his four goals, it was his all-round performance.”

Ventus United lost home advantage when their Dam Lane ground was declared unplayable last Thursday, with the West Riding County FA making them play at Malt Shovel’s ground in Selby.

But it did not matter as cup specialists Ventus won 3-2. Thomas Briggs scored first for the visitors, with Billy Summers providing an assist, and he also helped Aaron Irving with the first of his brace.

Shovel’s goalkeeper was dismissed late in the second half.

There was 23 scheduled fixtures in the Sunday Alliance League but only seven were played due to the bad weather.

Bolton Woods and Heaton Athletic shared eight goals in the Championship Division, while Beldon Oddies took over at the top of Division One with a 4-1 victory over Shoulder of Mutton and Steel Bangle Spartans had a 3-1 win over Dog & Gun.

The only game in Division Two was a 6-0 victory for East Bierley Village over Black Swan.

Eastward and Eccleshill Lane Ends shared six goals in a terrific match. Alan Morley bagged a brace for the hosts and John Selby scored to share the points.

Westleigh Wizards, for whom Jahro Parchment scored four times, put in a great shift to make their Hudson Avenue pitch playable and it paid off as they beat Hounds Athletic 6-2.
