Whinmoor's home pitch was declared to be in an unsafe condition and the games was relocated a replacement pitch on the Redhall (Strikes) playing fields - which weren't much better!

Whinmoor needed to take all 3 points to be in with a shout of the Championship and they thought they had done just that in the dying seconds, when Leon Walker broke the off side trap, splitting the Knaresborough defence in two, to run through and smash the ball past the advancing keeper, only to be ruled out by the referee for ‘offside'! Unfortunately for the screaming hordes of supporters and the bemusement of the home and away management team, the goal was struck off......

The game in general balanced itself out with some good passages of play from both sides. Both keepers where left with little to do for most of the game after the opening stages when Rishard Pryszczyk crafted 2 superb chances inside the penalty area, only to be spoilt twice by bobbles on a poorly rutted pitch. Hindley rekindled his battle in midfield with the in-form John Rimmer of Knaresborough, and the defensive quartet of Perkins, Turner, Uttley & Mulavdic again looked solid at the back. This was backed up with Miala, Alison, Cousins, Stubbins, Lowrence & Makani all putting in excellent performances.

The dream may have gone for this season but the spirit and determination still burns on with a final chance of silverware next week in the leagues main cup semi final away at Pannal Sports.

Good luck in the semi's boys you deserve some rewards for all your hard efforts this season. (RC - Posted 23/4/07)

Whinmoor bounce back and stay in the hunt for the title following a 2-0 win away at the league favourites.

Whinmoor were up for this one and nothing was going to prevent them from getting back on the winning road! It didn't take long for the home keeper to be tested and fully warmed up following early pressure from a Whinmoor onslaught. Quick pass & move tactics where the order of the day and the visitors didn't disappoint. Aaron and Luke both used the flanks well and Lewis and Ben stood firm in the centre. A solid performance from the back saw Pat, Gaz, James and Dino restrict the home side to long range efforts off target. Lewis Hindley curled in a sublime corner straight into the roof of the net leaving the Pannal boys scratching their heads!-0 Even though Whinmoor kept the pressure on the half time soon arrived to a round of applause. The second was much the same and when Richard Squires pounced on the loose ball down the right he was determined to take his chance, and he did with a cool finish 2-0. Milambo should've grabbed himself a brace following some hard work in a packed area.Rishard & Leon worked tirelessly up front all day.

Great team effort today boys well done. (RC - Posted 1/4/07)

Whinmoor once again to were made to pay for some unfortunate errors against a dogged Wetherby side.

This was a must win game to keep the title challenge alive, and it started well with another wonder strike from the boy from Portugal William Miala. Last weekend he smashed a thunderbolt against the post. This week another 30yarder sailed over the keeper into the roof of the net. A buoyant home side at this point was in a league of their own, only to see the lead taken away due to a lapse in concentration. Whinmoor picked themselves up and continued to press again and was rewarded with a penalty following a handball. Lewis Hindley made no mistake this time round from the spot, slotting past the keeper. The home side were set back on their heels again with clumsy challenge from behind saw the penalty now being awarded to the visitors, who made it 2-2. Mid way through the second saw the Wetherby striker pick up a loose ball and side step past the defence to beat the advancing keeper. Whinmoor now fearing the worst in the dying minutes were caught once again from a corner, conceding a fourth.A welcome break next week. (RC - Posted 11/3/07)

Whinmoor returned to winning ways in a tricky game away at title challengers Knaresborough Celtic. As the weather conditions worsened the pitch started to cut up, however this didn't prevent Whinmoor playing the better football from the off. William Miala picked up the ball 30 yards from goal and cracked a shot which smashed the upright beating the keeper all ends up. Whinmoor continued to battle through the deteriorating conditions with help of quality rolling subs being able to slot in when needed. The second half saw the deadlock brokena superb cross field pass from Richard Squires to find his man. Aaron Allison watched the flight of the ball and allowed to run in front of his body to coolly finish to the far post away from the out stretched keeper. Once again strength in depth paid dividends in the heavy conditions .(RC - Posted 4/3/07)

Whinmoor opened the scoring mid way through the first half when Leon Walker was on hand at the back post to slap in his 11th league goal of the season. Whinmoor dominated the opening half with some very neat football being played. Ben Sunley and Luke Stubbins combined superbly down the right flank and William Miala and Lewis Hindley once again got to grips with the midfield. Unfortunately the dominance was constantly under threat with the relentless pressure from the in-form Adel strikers Power and Flynn. Whinmoor stopper Joe Milner was also on top form making a string of fine saves throughout the game. Laurie Power was again the thorn in the Whinmoor side when he popped up to grab a brace either side of the break. Whinmoor continued to press to hard and were never out of the game. Whinmoor must now pick themselves up for the trip away to inform Knaresborough Celtic. (RC - Posted 25/2/07)

A shock result saw a resilient Wetherby side battle to keep a Whinmoor side from extending their lead at the top. The home team got off to a good start when Ex-Whinmoor player Matty Holmes sneaked in at the back post to open the scoring. The referee got the decision wrong to give a penalty inside the first 5mins and extend the lead to 2-0. Whinmoor stopper Joe Milner got a hand to the ball but was unlucky to see the ball creep inside his post. Whinmoor didn't push the panic button and continued to play their own game and produced the better football. Just before the break, in-form striker Milambo was brought down inside the box, but the usually reliable Lewis Hindley pulled the spot kick just wide. This took the wind out the Whinmoor sails, but they continued to fight on. The second half saw much of the same with thecamped in the Wetherby half. When Milambo Makani managed to break free, he pierced the back line to take his chance well, finishing at close range. A scrambled goal gave the home side the advantage once again and closed the game out to the end. There were plenty of positives to take back and some excellent individuals performed well today. Unlucky and well played today. (RC - Posted 4/2/07)

Whinmoor had to wait till the 2nd half before breaking down the Scholes rear guard. Whinmoor opted to kick up the slope from the start with plenty of neat football being played. In-form Lewis Hindley was again the maestro in midfield, dissecting the Scholes team almost single handedly. Luke Stubbings and Aaron Allison raided time after time down the flanks to no avail. The second half saw a different Scholes team harrass and fight for every ball causing the home side to concentrate from the off. Richard Squires found himself in acres of space on the right wing to place his trade mark wonder goal in the top corner giving the keeper no chance. This spurred on the home side who pressed in search of the second and it wasn't long coming. William Miala picked up the ball on the half way line, jinked inside the Scholes midfield and let rip from 25yrds to open his Whinmoor account. A resilient Scholes battled back into the game, and a lapse in concentration let in Scholes's Ashley Brady to take his chance well from the edge of the box. As the Whinmoor pressure mounted, Aaron Allison was on hand at the back post for a tap in to round off an enjoyable game. A well earned 3 points today following another excellent team performance.

A disappointed Whinmoor side came away from Otley witha point to show following what should have been a quite comfortable game. The game started brightly with Whinmoor piling on the pressure from the first whistle. And it didn't take long before Whinmoor began to carved open the Otley defence and create some fine chances from both flanks. Lewis and William soon started to stamp their feet on the midfield and Ben Sunley soon got into his stride at left back after a few weeks off. Whinmoor finally broke the deadlock midway through the first half when Aaron Allison picked up the ball down the left, jinked through group of players before he managed to get his shot away to beat the Otley stopper. As the ball clearly crossed the line the keeper and defender tried to hook the ball from inside the net only for the ball once again to land at Allisons feet who made sure they didn't retrieve it this time smashing it into the roof of the net. Dino, who had deputised in goal for the 1st half, had relatively nothing to do during the unexpected keeper absence. A 3 way substitution at half time again saw, Stubbins & Cousin all having great performances making team selection tough for the manager.the goal scorer Allison donned the keepers jersey for 2nd half , but could not be faulted for the equaliser. Whinmoor had chances in the final stages to take all 3 deserved points when Lewis Hindley and James Turner saw both their efforts thwarted from the. (RC - Posted 14/1/07)

A close fought and an entertaining first half saw both teams playing some attractive football. This was a game when 1 point wasn't going to be good enough, so following the half time team talk Whinmoor stepped up the pace and were soon rewarded with a toe-poke effort from Lewis Hindley, which flew in the top corner from the edge of the box through a ruck of players. This gave the home side the lift they needed to push on and it wasn't long before 1-0 became 2-0 from a cushioned header from striker Leon Walker, getting up between 2 defenders to beat the keeper. This took the wind out of a valiant Pannal side who had been battling hard to contain the relentless wave of attacks after the break. Leon Walker's 2nd goal was the pick of the bunch with a superbly executed scissor kick - Crouch eat your heart out! The confidence was oozing by this time with neat 1 touch football being played. The menacing Isaac Denny finally getting on the score sheet following another excellent display up front. Another all round team performance with Cousins making an impressive showing in the 1st half. Emms, Bainbridge and Eddmiston where solid forAsh throughout the match. (RC - Posted 7/1/07)

Whinmoor returned to Temple Newsman in fighting spirit and soon settled with some breathtaking football leading to 2 superb individual goals. The first came when a corner from Lewis Hindley and was met by Aaron Allison with a pin point bullet header rising above the pack. The 2nd came from another dead ball, this time 30yrds out centre of goal. Up stepped stand in captain Lewis Hindley to rifle home the free kick to give the home side a comfortable lead. Whinmoor continue to press hard with no further addition to the score. Isaac Denny came closest to extend the lead only to put his close range effort agonisingly over the bar. Sea croft tried to battle back in the second half with Mattie Weir always looking dangerous on the break. And it took a free kick just outside the Whinmoor box for the in-form Weir to beat the advancing keeper. Whinmoor continued to push forward and always looked likely to grab a third and when Malambo Makani broke through in dying minutes the on-rushing keeper thwarted his effort with a fine save at his feet. Excellent team performance with a thoroughly deserved victory, which sees Whinmoor progress in the Leeds & District cup. (RC - Posted 18/12/06)

Whinmoor were looking to bounce back today from their cup exit last week with a win away at Old Mods! However Old Mods had other ideas. Whinmoor terrorised the home side from the first minute to the last, but failed to capitalise on missed chances. Old Mods must have wondered what had hit them in the first half with both Whinmoor's flying wingers were cutting in from the left and right flanks. The midfield won every ball spraying passes everywhere. Again the break came and Whinmoor piled on more pressure and when Isaac Denny broke through to be hacked down on the edge of the box Whinmoor appealed only for the ref to look away! Old Mods by this time were attempting to play on the counter with a few long balls searching for Rob Wright, but the defence soon snubbed this out! I think we all realised at this point it was not going to be our day especially when Milambo and Ryszard both came agonisingly close in the dying stages. Apart from the score line the team performance was excellent today, well done lads. (RC - Posted 10/12/06)

YMCA piled on the pressure taking full advantage of the blustery conditions scoring a couple more, 3-1. Whinmoor finally managed to break from midfield, and again Leon Walker was on hand to score his second.3-2 The game turned on the stroke of half time when a free-kick was awarded to YMCA in their own half,the resulting punt forward landing firmly inside the Whinmoor goal! The windy conditions worsened as the match went on and YMCA gamely playing on the counter. Outstanding performance from Gary Perkins. (RC - Posted 3/12/06)

A shaky start gave the home side the incentive to push on and create chances following some good football in the opening period. However after a 3 way substitution on 25mins saw Isaac Denny latch on to a raking pass from Paddy Uttley, and then carve open the home sides defence from 20yds to open the scoring. The break came and inside 10mins the in-form Denny's menacing run came to an end when he was scythed down from behind inside the penalty area with only the keeper to beat. Stand in captain Lewis Hindley took control and coolly stroked home the penalty. A rampant Whinmoor continued to create chance after chance and from a corner the 3rd goal came when James Turner was the quickest to react to the keepers fumble and smashed in from close range. Whinmoor wrapped the game up in style when again Denny picked up the ball and sent a low shot sailing into the bottom corner. With competition for places being strong both Makani and Denny had very good games, A solid defence stood firm with and another excellent team performance from front to back.

Whinmoor finally started to settle down once a few players started to return from injury. Richard "Turbo" Squires remembered his middle name and latched onto two goals, the pick of which was when a superbly taken free-kick from Dino “Bomb Bomb” Mulavdic put straight into the heart of the penalty area saw Richard leap and head over the stranded keeper. He then turned provider with a pin point cross from the right wing resulting in Ryszard Pryszczyk coolly finishing on the edge of the area. Whinmoor continued to grow in confidence and finished the game in a canter. Some superb defensive qualities were on show from Paddy Uttley, Gary Perkins, James "the Rock" Turner, Dino Mulavdic and Ben Sunley who between them snuffed out any fizz from the ‘Ammers.

A last minute sucker punch robbed the home side of all three points. Whinmoor started the game brightly with some lovely football being played. And it wasn't long before Aaron Allison once again popped up with a right foot shot just inside the area. This sparked the visitors into action with some good football being played from both sides. An inviting ball down the left flank saw Power nip in between the defenders to head in at close range. The home side stepped up a gear and thought the game was won when Whinmoor's hit man Leon Walker smashed his 8th league goal of the season past the keeper mid way through the second half. However Whinmoor failed to shut up shop in the last minutes to allow the visitors a share of the spoils. Luke Stubbins, Dina Mulavdic & James Turner all had solid games battling to the end, plus a welcome return for Whinmoor stopper Joe Milner following his broken collar bone. (RC - Posted 12/11/06)

A quick brace from stand in striker Aaron Allison helped Whinmoor on their way inside the first 10mins. This sparked the home side into action resulting in a well taken goal from their no15. The half time break came with no further additions following some lovely attacking play from the visitors.

The home side switched tactics in the second half which frustrated the Whinmoor attackers. However when Issac Denny picked up the ball down the right wing he skipped past the oncoming defender and put an inviting cross into the path of the advancing Rishard Pryszczyk who duly smashed it home from 10yards out. From the restart, Glasshoughton sent the ball down the left and from the throw in, a hit and hope ball looped agonisingly into the roof of the net on 71mins. Glasshoughton pushed everyone forward in search of the equaliser however Whinmoor's defence stood strong. (RC - Posted 12/11/06)

No need for extra time this week with goals at the start and finish of a closely fought cup tie. Whinmoor caught the home side napping inside the first few minutes when the ball came in from the right wing from Milambo followed by a neat flick on from Leon to find Aaron waiting at the back post to christen his new boots and that was it till the last few minutes! A hard fought battle in the middle saw an Old Mod side throw everything barring the kitchen sink but to no avail! As the match drew to an end Leon continued to chase down lost causes when this time it came off, with the advancing keeper trying to out run the sprint machine only to find himself watching the ball nicked from his grasp and disappear into the open net!

Whinmoor U16s had to again come from behind to show a dogged Guiseley side that 2 goals was not enough to progress in this years league cup opener.

Some sloppy defending gave the advantage to the home side and when they got a free kick on the edge of the area 10mins from time the defence was again left wondering when the ball for the 2nd time ended up nestled in the goal.

The last 10mins saw Whinmoor lay siege on the home sides goal when Leon jinked in and out from the left hand side and smashed a hard and low shot across the keeper. The Guiseley defence already rocking when Richard latched onto a superb pass from Luke Stubbins bang 2-2 this time it was the away crowd screaming for more! Extra time saw Whinmoor pile on more pressure and Leon got hold of the ball inside the Guiseley box there was only ever going to be one Winner. Well done in tough conditions.
