WEST Riding Premier sides Brighouse Sports, Silsden and Thackley will kick off their new season on September 6 with an extra preliminary round tie in the FA Cup.

North East Regional (South) teams Bradford (Park Avenue) and Farsley Celtic Juniors are also due to start the same day. They will find out their opponents after the draw on August 21.

Sports beat Huddersfield Amateur 5-3 in a midweek friendly.

Sarah Hemingway was first off the mark, but Amateur replied with two quick goals.

Brighouse equalised just before the break as Georgia Lane struck excellently from outside the box.

In the second half, Sports took control with an individual goal from Leanne Smith before skipper Demi Topliss chipped the keeper.

Amateur gave themselves a lifeline with a great solo effort then Smith netted again to kill the game off.
