Chaos as game is abandoned

Have your say

THE League Committee is to review chaotic scenes at the Worsbrough Common v Houghton Main match, which was abandoned at 73 minutes.

Four Worsbrough players had been sent off. Officials will consider the circumstances and whether any sanctions are necessary.

Meanwhile, following two wins in the opening week, Ecclesfield Red Rose were bumped down to earth by Penistone Church, beaten 5-1 by a Lewis Dickinson hat-trick, a strike from Alvin Riley and an own goal. Handsworth had to work hard for their Premier Division victory at Sheffield FC, the only goal of the game from Lanzel Reid. Champions Athersley Rec won 5-1 against Hallam, goals hit by Ant Smith 2 Yakim Semedo 2 and Tom Harban. A Danny Moore double gave Davy FC victory by odd goal in three against Wombwell Main.

High Green Villa were 3-0 home winners over Everest, marksmen Dom Beevers, Luke Parkinson and Ian King. Millmoor Juniors and South Kirkby tied 1-1, the Rotherham team’s goal from Nicky Williams. Stocksbridge beat guests Swallownest MW 2-0, Cole Payne netting twice.
