battle which neither side deserved to lose and happily enough it ended all
square at 4-4.
Scorers for Jag were Ryan Harkin 3 and Robert Tressler whilst the
Ernesford marksmen were Jack Kemp, Jack Dobson, Liam Thomas and James Formstone.
The return of key players enabled Chapelfields Colts to bounce back to winning
ways with a superb disciplined performance against Kenilworth Wardens. Colts
went ahead in the first half when a Alex Winders cross deceived the Wardens
keeper and in a game where both teams played to the maximum a Joe Henderson free
kick sealed the game in the second half for the 3 points.

back for the Jaguar from the penalty spot and then very quickly the scores were

could have gone either way but with five minutes to play another Carlyon corner
was turned in by Jack Simpson to give the Jaguar a 3-2 win. Mount Nods Charlie

Pro Santos and Exhall Tigers were well matched in this mid-table
contest. Lewis Gardner and Peter Jurczak creating several chances in the
first half for Santos, while Ryan Caputo had a long-range free-kick cleared off
the line. However, it was Exhall Tigers who held a one goal lead at half time
through a Luke Spencer strike. The Tigers went 'on the prowl' after half time,
as Rohan Courts scored to give Exhall a 2 goal lead, despite Adam Beatt and
Daniel Taylor being solid in defence. Santos fought back; Ryan Murray broke
throught the Exhall defence and scored to provide hope for the home side.

Sphinx provided better finishing in a game that was controlled for long periods
by AT7 Youth. A long through ball allowed Tom Skerratt to give the Sphinx the
lead although on half time, a good run and cross from Connor Mortimer enabled
Liam Richardson to level the scores. Two quick second half goals from Michael
Smith and Skerratt gave the Sphinx a cushion to defend and this they did
admirably in the face of severe AT pressure.
Chapelfields Colts Red maintained their 100% start to the seaon with the
5-0 defeat of Rugby Town. They took the lead through Brendan Sharp with
captain Harvey Perch adding to the score. Further goals were scored in the

of the game from Craig Murch and Lee Gibson of Rugby Town to keep the score

referee Sam Moore earned the praise of both Whitley Juniors and Kenilworth Town
for his mature performance in the middle of the park. Allowing the game to flow,
he contributed along with both teams to a game that was a credit to the league.
A Tom Glassok penalty put Kenilworth in front but 5 minutes from half time, a
superb lob from Shane Cole pulled the scores level. Ten minutes from the end, a
defensive mix up at the Whitley end allowed Glassock the chance to score his
second and earn a 2-1 success for the Town.

Mill Juniors continued their current run of results with a 3-1 win against Ryona.
The Hawkes started sharpest but Ryona scored first when Jake O'Hara was the
first to react to a loose ball 6 yards out, to net. Hawkes Mill equalised before
half time when Louis Stockil burst through on the left taking the ball half the
length of the pitch and although his shot was saved Tim Majaya picked up the
rebound and slotted home. The game was evenly balanced until Hawkes Mill took
the lead. Luke Russell fired a free kick from the right which Daniel Simmons
cushioned beautifully for Louis Stockil to fire home. Hawkes Mill were in the
ascendancy and another Russell free kick, this time from the left took a
deflection off Tom Heyes to make it 3-1. Hawkes Mill continued to press
resulting in some desperate defending from the visitors but the home team
remained cool to chalk up another good win

took the lead against Wyken thanks to the quick thinking Jack Blundy, pouncing
onto a loose ball after good work by Jonathan Openshaw. Andrew Clarke and Sam
Ballinger were then called into defensive action as Wyken chased an equaliser.
Finham also created openings but were denied by the excellent Gavin Prue in the
Wyken goal. Finham doubled their
lead in the second half when Jack Blundy beat several opponents before calmly
placing the ball into the corner of the goal. Once again Wyken reacted strongly
as Daniel Kennell and Ashley Holmes led them forward and Callum Taylor pulled a
goal back after Chris Thomas in the Finham goal had saved well. Rob Palmer and
Blundy withstood the Wyken onslaught with Tom Stanley and Jim Bramwell causing
Wyken problems of their own but once again Prue was commanding. Wyken had
chances in the last minutes and Kennell saw a free kick slide agonising the
wrong side of a Finham upright.
