With rumours circulating of another lockdown incoming from PM Boris Johnson teams around the S&H County Senior were wise to enjoy what might be their last outing for a month or more.

Matchday 7

Premier Division

No better place to start the round up than at Dodworth Miners Welfare’s ground as they hosted Swinton Athletic in a top of the table clash. It was Swinton who proved too powerful in the game winning 3-0 to maintain their impressive start and to leapfrog Dodworth into first place. Another two goals for Justin Greenwood came as no shock. The amazing run that Oughtibridge WMSC are on is showing no signs of stopping as they won again 3-2 against High Green Villa. That is four wins on the bounce for Oughtibridge winning their last three by one goal. They move up into fourth as a result.

Wakefield AFC were hosting Hepworth United this weekend in a repeat of last weeks fixture due to locational restrictions. The game this week went the way of Wakefield winning 1-0 thanks to Dean Makunike’s strike. Wakefield now move into the top three, Hepworth slip to fifth. There was a hugely important three points won on the road by Davy’s FC against Stocksbridge Park Steels Reserves with the game ending 2-1 to the away side. The first win of the season was hard fought and came despite them going down to 10 men after Howard Wood received two yellow cards. The fifth and final game was an entertaining 2-2 draw between Ecclesfield Red Rose 1915 and North Gawber Colliery. Both teams sitting in midtable safety.

Division One

There was a hatful of goals in Division One over the weekend and eight in total at Sheerian Park as Athersley Rec Reserves hosted Wombwell Town.

There were six different goalscorers for Kiveton on the day as Sean Ebbs helped himself to a brace. Kiveton now move into second, Bohemians sit 11th.

League leaders and unbeaten Denaby Main were away to Wombwell Main Development and remain unbeaten after an excellent 5-2 victory. Luke Townsend scored two of the five and his side are sitting pretty at the top of the league.

In the final game in the division Cory Woodward was on hand to slot in a hat-trick for his side South Elmsall United Services who won 4-1 at home to South Kirkby Colliery. The win moves South Elmsall into the top four.

Division Two

Current league leaders and unbeaten Caribbean Sports were on the road against Stocksbridge Park Steels Development who have been struggling of late. The game was a close one but was eventually was won by the away side 4-2, with sub Aaron Buck scoring a brace to help Caribbean stay perfect and hold onto top spot. Caribbean’s closest challengers were Swinton Athletic Reserves who hosted Kiveton Park Reserves. Another close contest was played out being won narrowly 3-2 by the home side which keeps them on the heels of table toppers Caribbean. Jack Mason was at the double for Kiveton.

At a very wet Ecclesfield Park the hosts Sheffield Lane Top were able to earn a well deserved 2-0 win against Parkgate Reserves. The goals coming from William Bradshaw and Elliott Rogan which keeps the side in sixth place. The fourth and final game in the division was between unbeaten Millmoor Juniors and Bank End AFC. The hosts remain unbeaten on their return to the league with a 3-1 win and sit in third place, well positioned for a promotion push.
