Bradford go top as Jardy Boys draw

Bradford stormed to the summit of the PREMIER DIVISION with a crushing 30 victory over Thornhill United Seniors, following another slipup by Jardy Boys. John Singh scored twice and Itfaq Hussain made it three while Jardy Boys only just snatched a 11 draw with secondbottom Quarry. Quarry took an early lead through Paul Egan but Jardy snatched a point thanks to a late strike from Richard McCannetted. Mount Athletic suffered a late collapse, and now sit rock bottom of the Spen Valley League’s top division, after going down 52 to TVR United, despite leading 20 for 75 minutes. Samman scored twice in quick succession for Mount but his effort was completely obliterated in the final quarter as Abid Khan (2), Nassar Hussain, Junaid Taj and Ibrahim Khan all scored to send TVR up to third in the table. BD3 United’s title hopes are beginning to slip away after they were held to a 11 draw by Girlington but elsewhere, Fairbank overcame Ravensthorpe Rangers 10 courtesy of a Rizwan Mir goal. Debutant Liam Shields bagged a terrific hattrick as DIVISION ONE pacesetters Vision showed their strength with a 92 demolition of secondbottom Inter Batley. Chris Lever and Michael Roebuck both scored twice before Fernando Cissa and Jonathan Niland completed the rout. Meanwhile, Oakwell kept up the pressure on Vision with a 41 win over ALC and Howden Clough remain just behind in third thanks to a 21 win over Savile United. Gary Wood and Phil Crossland scored for Oakwell. Ravenswharfe completed the programme with a 10 victory over fellow strugglers Thornhill United Seniors B.
