West Yorkshire League Premier Division: Beeston St Anthony's 2 Ilkley Town 1

SECOND-placed Beeston St Anthony’s ran out winners against visitors Ilkley Town, holding off a second-half fightback from the away side, who again lost by the odd goal.

Matty Moon gave Beeston the lead in the sixth minute, breaking through Ilkley's defence to shoot home from 12 yards, the effort taking a slight deflection as it went past keeper James Hirst.

Ilkley came very close to drawing level in the 37th minute when Beeston keeper Stephen Kerr mishandled a cross in the box but Adam Fowler headed wide from close range.

Beeston doubled their lead in the 53rd minute, a well-worked corner routine finding the feet of Lee Turnbull on the edge of the six-yard box, who guided it into the bottom corner on the volley, leaving Hirst with no chance.

Ilkley got a goal back in the 61st minute when Danny Chadwick’s free-kick into the box beat everyone, floating over the outstretched arms of Kerr into the net.

Chadwick came close to levelling the match in the 86th minute, his shot taking a double deflection and beating the keeper, only to be denied by a post.

Ilkley had a penalty claim in the dying moments of the match for a foul on Adam Fowler, but the referee wasn’t interested.

Town's assistant manager Greg Beswick said: “We’ve done really well, put in a really good shift.

"The second goal was a little bit soft from our point of view but we put up a really good fight in the last 15 minutes. "They are a good side and won the treble last season, so we have performed extremely well.

"In terms of the penalty decision, with how soft the referee has been with some of the decisions in the game he could possibly have given it.”

The first team travel to Ryburn United on Saturday in the West Riding County FA Challenge Cup (2.00).

Two incredible goal-scoring feats helped the reserves and Academy to victory.
