Hey there football fans! What a fabulous Saturday of football we’ve just had. And in the heart of it all, our very own Yorkshire teams fought hard, displaying their might, passion, and tenacity. Let’s break it down and see how our teams performed.
Premier League: ⚽️
- Sheffield United found themselves at the wrong end of a 1-0 result against Crystal Palace. A tough opening match on their return to the Prem but the Blades showed spirit, and we’re sure brighter days are ahead!
- A bit of a heartbreak for the Whites, Leeds United who suffered a close 1-0 defeat against Birmingham City with one of the last kicks of the game. We’re optimistic they’ll bounce back stronger in their next outing – their new manager described their present performances as a “hangover” from relegation of last season.
- The Terriers of Huddersfield Town were nipped by another recently relegated side, Leicester City with a solitary goal deciding the game.
- A high-scoring all-Yorkshire drama unfolded at the KCOM Stadium as Hull City roared to a 4-2 victory against Sheffield Wednesday. Yorkshire bragging rights secured, as the side from East Yorkshire took home the three points.
- Rotherham United showed some serious grit, pulling off a thrilling 2-2 draw against Blackburn Rovers.
League One: ⚽️
- Barnsley went toe-to-toe with Bristol Rovers, with both teams finding the net once. A 1-1 draw for the Tykes, but there was no shortage of action!
League Two: ⚽️
- Bradford City gave their fans something to cheer about, securing a 2-1 victory against Colchester United. Bantams are on the march!
- It was a quiet evening in Harrogate as Harrogate Town narrowly missed out, succumbing 1-0 to Forest Green Rovers.
- Doncaster Rovers, unfortunately, found themselves on the back foot, with Newport County bagging a 4-0 win.
National League: ⚽️
- FC Halifax Town journeyed south to face Boreham Wood but returned empty-handed after a 2-0 defeat.
