Todmorden Wanderers under sevens have enjoyed a flying start to their debut season.

Last Sunday saw them stretch their unbeaten run to five games with an 11-1 victory against St Columbus at Ling Bob School.

Both teams respectfully marked the minutes silence for our fallen heroes.

Wanderers took a quick 3-0 lead with Daniel Kelly opening the scoring then Alfie Senior added a further two.

St Columbus pulled a goal back before Lennie Halstead and Harvey Cartmill gave the travelling team a four goal advantage at half-time.

The second half saw great football by both teams.

Aidan Rodgers held solid in defence protecting Reuben Aldred in the Wanderers goal.

Rodgers and Aldred worked well feeding balls to Issac Waite and Halstead out on the wings.

Waite then found his way through Columbus’ midfield assisting both Senior and Kelly to earn their hat-tricks.

Cartmill worked hard up front securing himself a second half hatrick and the title of Man of the Match awarded by the St Columbus coaches.

Hebden Bridge U16 Tigers chalked up their biggest victory for over two years as they won 8-1 away at Rastrick B in the Huddersfield Cup.

The first half was quite evenly played but Tigers took their chances going in 2-0 up at the break with goals from Sam Thompson and Martin Howard.

The secondperiod, however, was almost all one way traffic.

Another Howard goal right at the start of the half deflated Rastrick and soon both Thompson and Howard had completed their hat-tricks.

Rastrick pulled one back from a free kick but the Hebden scoring was completed by Howard adding his fourth and Adam Summerscales converting a penalty after he had been brought down.

Tigers are rewarded with a home tie against Kirkheaton.
