Wins for both sides
Both sides recorded 3-1 wins today.
The first team saw off Halifax Irish, but needed two late goals to grab the victory. Andy Holden gave Steeton the lead, before Irish levelled. Sam Rooke headed home eight minutes from time before Lee Reilly made things safe in the 88th minute.
The reserves had to come from behind in order to grab the points at Campion. Andy Briggs struck a brace and Greig Hudson also struck as Andy Foster enjoyed his first victory as manager.
Steeton were unfortunate to go down to a 5-0 scoreline at Ovenden. Despite creating numerous second half chances, Steeton couldn't convert when they presented themselves. The home keeper made a great save from new signing, Aaron Hollingdrake before the hosts took the lead following a goal mouth scramble. Josh Huntley also went close from close range before the hosts doubled their lead against the run of play. Two controversial goals ended the contest as the referee refused Steeton's offside appeals. A fifth added salt into the wounds for the visitors, who despite having five regulars missing gave a the reigning champions plenty to think about. Jack Richmond enjoyed a fine debut in midfield and Joe Mason was arguably the pick of the debutants with a solid game at right back.
The reserve side drew 1-1 with Ventus Yeadon. Josh Ferguson ensured Andy Fosters first game in charge ended with his sued taking a deserved point. Paul Linyard was back out of retirement to help out and his experience helped a side that was essentially made up of our under 18 side.
Today's home game with Golcar has been postponed. Even though large parts of the pitch were playable, some areas were just to wet.
The reserves game at Wibsey was postponed on Friday night due to the snow and wet weather.
The Under 18 game tomorrow is subject to a 10am pitch inspection and we are hoping if we have a dry day today then that game can go ahead.
The players will be in this morning for a 5 a side session though as the weather has now meant we have only played two games in two months.
Steeton' trip to Huddersfield YMCA was today postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
The reserves Keighley Cup game is subject to a pitch inspection in the morning.
