Battyeford Belles Reserves relish tough clash with Bradford City A

THE WEST Riding County League Cup dominates the district’s women’s soccer scene on Sunday, with Battyeford Belles reserves taking on Bradford City A in one of the most intriguing ties.

In the past two years there has been a constant battle for honours between City and the Belles first team, with the Belles pipping City to promotion to the Premier Division last season, so it will be interesting to see how the Battyeford side’s second team fare.

The Belles’ first team are already out of the competition but the district is still well represented. Ossett Town are at Farsley Celtic and Dewsbury Rangers, after a mixed pre-season, play host to Leeds side Republica Internationale.

Elsewhere Ossett Town reserves are at home to Clifton Rangers and new club Lower Hopton go to Selby side Brayton Belles.

There was no game for Ossett Albion last week but they are back in North East Regional League Southern action with a trip to face Humberside Malet Lambert, looking to improve on their 3-1 opening day defeat at AFC Preston.
