THE Sunday League are making a big push to attract new clubs for next season.
Between now and the annual meeting in June, a supreme effort will be made – using the current seven clubs – to encourage new ones to join.
The aim is to create a much more competitive situation in the league and, hopefully, recruiting will be successful and clubs can look forward to a better season in 2011-12.
Huddersfield Irish Centre, meanwhile, unfortunately missed out on a place in the semi-finals of the West Riding FA Sunday Cup.
Visiting Ferrybridge Progressive WMC, they were tied at 1-1 and at the end of normal time and, after extra time, were still level at 2-2, Keiran Ryan netting both goals for Irish.
Then, for the third time in succession for Ferrybridge, it went to a penalty shoot-out and, once again, they were successful, going through 6-5.
In the League, Club Kirkheaton won a high-scoring clash with Escorpians 10-4.
Once again, Escorpians performed well in the first half at Lindley Rec but then, as in previous games, faded in the second.
Marcus Burton and Daniel Bradley, with hat tricks, Michael Henriques scored twice (two goals), a rare strike by centre-half Richard Woodward and an own goal did the damage.
Daniel Bojar (2), Craig Vant and Oliver Gareis replied for Escorpians.
In the Armitage Leisure Supplementary Trophy, Leeds Road Wanderers seem to have lost some of their recent enthusiasm as they were well beaten 8-2 by Marsh FC.
Dale Joy netted both Wanderers goals but for the winners, Alex Trowell was on target four times along with Richard Dyson (2), Ben Roys and Nathan Inman.
In the Golcar derby, Con beat Rose and Crown 3-1 through Tom McCreadie, Warren Brook and Andrew Allison. Dean Wharam replied.
