SUNDAY LEAGUE

PREMIERSHIP

Bank holiday weekend didn’t quite grab hold as much as we’d expect, and 7 league games were able to take place. Only one of them was in the top flight though, and one of those teams struggled to field the required numbers. That would go some way towards explaining a fairly one sided 10-4 win for Duno FC over KR FC, with Daniel Maynard’s 7 goals the main difference between the two sides.

CHAMPIONSHIP

It was top versus bottom in the Championship as The Veterans attempted to derail FC AOTS promotion party. They looked like doing it as well when Ryan Prestwich added to Andy Carrington’s triple in the dying minutes to make it 4-4, but Steve Whittle scored the winner a minute later in a game where Charley Hutchinson grabbed two for the leaders. Sevilla Lacatalent remain a formidable force at Championship level, and they picked up a third straight victory with a fairly routine 7-3 win over a struggling Stockport Eagles. Sam Melling grabbed three of those goals and there were doubles from Jake Riley and Tom Jackson, with Michael Winn’s brace for Eagles counting for very little.

LEAGUE ONE

The top two heading into this weeks games went head to head as The McMuffin Men looked to take a firm grip on the title by maintaining their 100% record with a win over Team Tom. After a fairly tight opening half an hour, the leaders took control and a late flurry of goals, including 4 from Daniel Havern, eased McMuffin Men to a 6-0 win. Polish Army took early control in their game with Inter Your Sister this week as two goals each from Hubert and Bania gave them a 4-1 half time lead, and they were able to see it out in the second half as Hubert completed his hat trick in a 7-3 win that sees the Poles leapfrog Team Tom into second place.

LEAGUE TWO

With ManTun having left us while top of League Two, there was a chance for some of the remaining teams to take top spot this week. SK Six were the team to step up, and their hard fought 4-1 win over Deportivo Lack Of Talent saw them take that top spot as we head into the letter stages of the season, Max Blunsten Shepherd’s two goals key in the victory. A recent impressive win over SK has catapulted Pathetico Madrid back into contention at the top end, but their games are running out so they need to keep winning. They did so this week as three second half goals eased them to a 5-1 victory over CA FC, with John Lodge scoring three.

MONDAY LEAGUE

Quiet one this week with Bank Holiday and City robbing us of most of our teams, but a couple of games did go ahead. Expected Toulouse were back after a few weeks off, but their squad was stretched going into this weeks game with Nice Buns, who themselves were short of a number of regulars. Toulouse took early control and lead 4-1 at the break, before going on to clinch a 7-3 victory with three goals from Joe Roche and two each from Waz Akram and Andrew Shaw. Toulouse return to the top with games to spare on the rest.

In friendly action, Buff Daddy (name still to be ratified….) continued to show what an enigma they are as they picked up a comfortable 11-4 win over Cheadle FC. Mike Cocks grabbed 4 and there were doubles for Shane Bridges, Mike Devitt and Lewis Arden, while Tom Hoyland replied with three of his own for Cheadle.

TUESDAY LEAGUE

Following just their second defeat of the season last week, Club Tropicana were looking to get back to winning ways against struggling FC AOTS. A pretty tight first half turned when Andrew Cocharan scored on the stroke of half time to give Tropicana a 3-1 interval lead, and three more from the same player in the second half helped the leaders ease to an 8-2 win. With two games this week, Gangsta’s Allardyce had the opportunity to close the gap on the leaders. Things didn’t go to plan in the first game against Speshull City, as the new boys finished the stronger in a topsy turvy game with Aiden Cassells scoring three late goals in a 6-4 win. They bounced back in their second game against Michu At De Gea Ba, as doubles from Callum Thompson, Adam Needham and David Crozier helped them pick up a vital 6-4 victory.

The other new team, Snorting Lisbon, look like being a force to be reckoned with, and they made it two wins from two by beating the now formerly second placed For Fuch’s Sake 12-7. Kriss Fawcett top scored with half of their total to make it 13 goals in two games for him, and Josh Gittings helped himself to three. Liam Paull’s hat trick for Fuch’s was in a losing cause this week on a rare bad night for the title challengers. Stroke Titty returned to the top 6 with a hard fought win over Leavemyarsealona. Jay Willingham scored 4, with the other goals being shared around, while Scott Stokes three for Leavemy weren’t enough for them to pick up any points.

WEDNESDAY LEAGUE

The Wednesday league looks like it could be a straight shootout between New Team and Wellspring this season, as both teams continued their 100% starts to the season. New Team have taken top spot after they picked up a comfortable 10-1 win over struggling Exeter Gently, with Adam Murphy grabbing 6 of their goals. They take top spot from Out Of Shape FC who lost an almighty struggle with FC Rhino Ket 3-2, with Jack Kerton, Louis Moore and Pete Simister’s goals just enough to see them through to a second win of the campaign. Wellspring have the games in hand and did most of their work against Stockport Eagles in the first half last night, leading 7-3 at the break before going on to claim a 9-3 win, with Mike Cocks scoring 4 and Mike Devitt a brace

THE WEDNESDAY LEAGUE REMAINS FULL, SUNDAY OR TUESDAY ARE YOUR BEST BETS FOR A SWIFT START!
