Birstall make up ground with Clifton thrashing

BIRSTALL Cricket Club moved to just two points behind Heavy Woollen Sunday League Championship leaders Mount Pleasant with a convincing 7-0 win against lowly Clifton Rangers Reserves last weekend.

Gary Foley led the way with a hat-trick, with Kyle Walker (brace), Bradley Richardson and Matthew Barrett also finding the net. 

Snowdon drop to third place after Liam McManus, Ben Roach and Ben Sykes all scored as Wire Works won 3-0.

Overthorpe Sports Club are up to fourth after edging out Inter Batley 4-3. 

Michael Hutton and Corey Schofield both hit doubles for Overthorpe with Muhammed Navsarka (brace) and Aweb Ahmed replying for Inter. 

Jon MacDonald hit a hat-trick as Battyeford won 4-2 at Clifton Rangers Athletic. Guy Hollinshead bagged the other with Clifton replying through Bradley Main and Keelan Town.

Due to County Cup commitments no Premier Division games took place last Sunday. Mirfield Town claimed a spot in the next round with a 7-0 win over Siddal Place, whilst Mount Pleasant won 5-0 against Navigation. The only other game to survive the weather saw Walkers Hounds win 4-2 at Wrose Bull.
