Yorkshire League Extra

Silver Rook

The Silver Rook teams were in action at the weekend. The headline result were Sheffield F producing an excellent performance to hold Pontefract to a 4-4 draw. West Leeds vs Bradford C also ended in the match points being shared which meant Wakefield B were the main team to make progress with a decisive 6 1/2-1 1/2 victory against Harrogate C. Dewsbury had the BYE. Pontefract hold top position with a two point lead over Dewsbury with three teams clustering a point behind.

In the next round of fixtures West Leeds host Pontefract and will be hoping to repeat their upset of last season while Bradford C vs Pontefract.

AG Sunderland

The first round of this new event will take place at the Latvian Club this coming Saturday. Four teams will be competing (Alwoodley, Bradford Knights, Harrogate and Hull DCA) and I look forward to bringing you a full report shortly.
