Both mens and ladies 1s retain top spot with 100% records maintained but tougher opposition stretched both our teams in their quest for promotion.
The ladies 1s not only conceded two goals for the first time in ages, they also went one down to a spirited Boston Spa team before pulling one back to draw level at the interval. A better second half saw a two goal cushion give some breathing space although it was a nervous last five minutes when Boston pulled one back.
The mens 1s went away to Sheffield Uni Bankers who were also undefeated this season. A resounding 4-0 win confirmed the strength in the squad this season especially with some injury worries to overcome.
Sadly both 2nd strings were beaten and both failed to score despite pre match Nandos for the ladies. The ladies 3s retained top spot in their division with another big win and the ladies 4s were unfortunate to lose a high scoring game away at Pickering.
The mens 3s and 4s also lost narrowly in high scoring games but the mens 5s grabbed a late equaliser v Ben Rhydding to salvage a point.
Next week sees a full set of fixtures on Saturday and then two big cup games on Sunday with the ladies playing Newcastle in the EH Trophy and the Mens Veterans playing York, the first time we have had a veterans side out for many a year with several players coming out of retirement to help raise a side.
