Steeton Reach Final
Steeton reached the league cup final with a 2-0 win over Route One Rovers.
An OG from a defender put Steeton ahead from Jonah Smith's long throw in the first half and a injury time second from Andy Briggs sealed our place at Brighouse Town on Friday May 18th where we will meet Campion.
Steeton 4 Littletown 2
Steeton secured a top three finish with a 4-2 win over Littletown. Alistair Morgan tapped home from Jonah Smith's long throw. Smith then caused havoc with another long throw and forced a Littletown defender into putting through his own goal. Alex Yates rounded the keeper for a third before the visitors pulled one back just before the break.
On a baking hot day Joe Jagger then pulled another one back for Littletown, but Yates grabbed a second as Steeton held on for what proved to be a comfortable win.
Keighley Cup Winners
Steeton came from behind to win the Keighley FA Cup thanks to a late Graham Holmes goal. Josh Metcalfe put Silsden Whitestar 1-0 up with a well taken finish.
Holmes then levelled things up when he raced through and poked the ball past Danny Thorpe. The game then went into extra time and with penalties looking likely it was Holmes who grabbed the winner.
Toby Jeffrey won the ball on the right hand side before cutting a great ball back into the path of Alex Yates, who flicked it into Holmes' path and he rifled the ball into the roof of the net to ensure the cup came back to Steeton.
Salts 0 Steeton 1
A second half strike from Steve Pearson was enough to give Steeton the points in a game that failed to live up to the one played seven days earlier.
With the Keighley Cup final on Friday night, Andy Briggs and Ben Clarkson were both rested as was Ben Richardson. Graham Holmes and Nicky McNally lead the line well to say neither player has had much game time of late.
Salts now await news of an appeal from Golcar regarding an ineligable player to see where the title will end up.
The win coupled with us being awarded three points from Britannia saw us maintain our third place in the league with home games to come against Littletown and Wakefield.
