Max Leonard scored twice as Linthwaite Athletic moved through to the Huddersfield FA Challenge Cup final beating Deighton 2-1. Johnathan Reilly scoring for Deighton.

On Wednesday night Newsome Reserves captured their third Huddersfield FA Trophy with an entertaining victory over Deighton Reserves at Shelley.
Both sides gave their all in an intriguing battle and Deighton were left to rue missed chances in a 2-1 defeat.
Newsome, who have their sights set on the Reserve Division 1 title, had to come from behind. Deighton had the better of the opening exchanges and went ahead after 15 minutes with a delightful 20-yard free kick from Kyle Matthews which ripped into the corner of the net.
But the lead lasted only one minute as Newsome swept forward down the left where the ball was played into the box and after two attempts to clear were foiled, Adam Hill swept home the equaliser.
In the second half it was Deighton who were on top, but they lacked a cutting edge. One effort went inches past the post, and another was cleared by a scrambling Newsome defence. It was to prove costly as Newsome grew in confidence and in the 80th minute went ahead. A free kick from the right fell to George Somerville and he swept home the winner.
The game was well controlled by referee Ian Daffern and his assistants Paul Vasilenko and Gareth Crossley.
Man of the match was Newsome defender Josh Higgins. Trophies were presented by long-serving Huddersfield FA and District League official Tommy Mowat, assisted by Frank Beverley.
