Northowram won the RCD Huddersfield Junior League Under 9 Cup final 5-1 against Meltham.

A long-range Sam Finney thunderbolt after 10 minutes got Meltham’s effort off to the perfect start but Northowram were back on level terms five minutes later when Leo Austin curled a shot into the top corner direct from a corner.

Austin gave Northowram the lead just before the break with a shot into the roof of the net and, although Meltham went close several times in the second half, Northowram made the better of their chances and further goals from Cormac Rozsa (2) and Toby Barraclough sealed their win.

In the Under 10 Cup final, Ryburn United scored a 3-1 win over Norristhorpe.

Ben Fallon grabbed the first goal to give Ryburn an early advantage and was denied a second only by keeper Elliot Cooper’s superb save just before the break.

Marcus Hiley and Harry Finch added a second and third for United in the second half and, although Jake Hewitt gave the Norristhorpe supporters some hope, it was too little, too late as Ryburn held on to lift the trophy.

In the League, Golcar United kept up the pressure on Clifton Rangers in the race for the Under 11 League title.

Goals from Ansley Bailey and Nathan Kavanagh secured a 2-1 victory at Elland which leaves Golcar needing victory at Clifton next week to retain their hopes of taking the title.

Another Lepton side enjoying a good day were the Under 11s, who were victorious over Brighouse.

Having already ensured a promotion spot, a Nathan Stow strike and a Zak Wimpenny hat trick gave the Highlanders the margin required to lift the Division II title.

Honley Under 12s are already assured of promotion from Division II and victory over leaders, Ossett Albion, still leaves them with an outside chance of the title.

Luke McGrath and Tom Mee scored for Ossett but replies from Harrison Booth, Joseph Brook, Matthew Foster and Owen Kenworthy will give Honley a welcome boost of optimism for their move into the top division next season.

Promotion places in Division IV of the Under 15s remain in the balance as two of the top four lost.

Second-placed Birchencliffe scored three times at Gomersal but replies from Leon Bould (3), Jordan Baldwin (2), Jacob Horne and Sam Daley gave the fourth-placed home side a convincing 7-3 victory.

Howden Clough missed their chance to overtake Birchencliffe by suffering a 4-2 defeat at Dewsbury Rangers.

Meanwhile, leaders Ryburn United took advantage of their rivals’ slip-ups by adding another three points to their tally with a 6-1 win at Norristhorpe.

Joe Deakin (2), Bradley Gaimster, Conor McGow, Ben Coburn and Kiam Taylor score Ryburn’s goals.

Littletown remain neck-and-neck with YMCA in the race for the Under 17 title following their latest victory over Linthwaite.

Linthwaite were unable to find the net as two goals for Rowan Binns and one from George White sealed a 3-0 win for Littletown.
