LEALHOLM are the new champions of the newitts.com Beckett Football League.

Royal Oak Malton’s decision to quit the league with one game to play saw all their results this season declared void, meaning Lealholm, in their maiden campaign in first division, cannot be caught at the top.

League chiefs have not said why Royal Oak left the league so late in the campaign.

Division two title-winners and newcomers Sleights, meanwhile, have completed a treble after lifting both the Panasonic League Division Two Cup and the Marisa Cup to go with their division two title.

Sinnington took a 2-1 lead into half-time in the Marisa Cup final thanks to two early David Wilkinson goals, but Jack Henshaw's swift first-half reply, a brace from man-of-the-match Charlie Smith and Billy Graham's individual effort completed the 4-2 win. Both sides finished the game with nine men.

In the Panasonic League Division Two Cup final, Sleights prevailed 2-0 against Slingsby.

Sleights opened the game on top with two good chances superbly saved by Mick Norman. Slingsby gradually got into the game and had two strong penalty appeals turned down.

The deadlock was only broken five minutes from time when Charlie Paterson crossed for Graham to score with a fine shot.

Within 90 seconds, Patterson sealed the victory.

Meanwhile, in the York Minster Engineering League premier division on Monday night, eighth-placed Hemingbrough United were 3-2 home winners over sixth-placed F1 Racing. On target for Racing were Chris Dempsey and Alexander Martin.

Fourth-placed Dunnington Reserves won 3-2 at ninth-placed Church Fenton Reserves in reserve 'A'.
