This was fantastic entertainment on another rainy night in Huddersfield; a large crowd gathering despite the early 5-30pm kick-off. Storthes Hall is a university hall of residence with fine leisure facilities located near Kirkburton about four miles from Huddersfield centre just off the A629.

 

The game was fast flowing and passionate, West Riding County Amateur outfit Lepton eventually prevailing against their opponents from D2 of the Huddersfield & District League but only after a great game that kept the crowd enthralled. A fine, flat pitch, tree lined on two sides with supporters from both sides manning opposite touchlines. Lepton led 2-1 at half-time but only clinched the tie with two late goals before Scholes got a late consolation.
