TWO clubs – Hepworth United and Kirkheaton – have been eliminated from the Hoyle Cup for playing ineligible players.
Repeated reminders have been issued at the monthly meetings and it must be disappointing for players when this happens at their clubs – having won and then finding out they’ve contravened the rules.
Clubs are also advised to contact the registration secretary if they are in any doubt about team selection.
Holders Bay Athletic moved forward to meet Moldgreen FC in today’s quarter-finals after beating league leaders Coach & Horses with a goal from Wood.
In Division I, Lepton Highlanders lifted themselves off the foot of the table with an emphatic 6-1 home win over Aimbry FC, Horton getting the visitors’ consolation.
Sovereign Sports retained second spot with a 2-0 away win at Hepworth.
The Division II title race is a really tight affair with leaders Ireti Athletic topping the table by just a point from major challengers Golcar United, who have a game in hand.
They meet today at Dewsbury in a match which could well go a long way to deciding the title, although Kirkheaton Rovers and outsiders Moldgreen Con are waiting for any slip-ups.
Ireti scored a fine 4-0 win against Shelley at Farnley Tyas with Peace netting a hat trick and Nawaz getting the other.
Golcar had a 7-2 home win over Lindley Lib Res.
