This Sunday brings the second round of the Wheatley Cup, and as ever there are some intriguing ties. In the two all Premier Division games, league leaders Ossett are at home to Mirfield Parish Cavaliers. Already through to the Crowther Cup quarter finals, Ossett are campaigning hard on three fronts and will be full of confidence. Parish however, are a more than capable side and will not be making things easy for the home team. Birstall and East Ardsley have both made disappointing starts this year and a cup run would certainly lift the spirits of the winners. Ardsley have struggled for numbers recently, but hopefully they can put out a full team on Sunday and we should see a good contest.
The other games all pit Premier Division teams against Championship sides. Cup holders Wakefield Thornes will be confident of making progress against the Championships bottom side Hunslet Nelson, but there are potential banana skins in the other games. 2014 finalists Wrenthorpe entertain Townville, who appear to have re-grouped well after last years relegation, and Methley face a tricky looking visit to Hopton Mills. Championship leaders Azaad are at home to Premier Division high flyers Wakefield St Michaels, which looks a great tie on paper, meanwhile Carlton travel the short distance to Oulton,
With East Leeds receiving a bye, there will be one Division One side going through. Good luck to all teams.
