Fisher men defy weather to go top

Once again the seasonal weather took its toll on the weekend’s fixtures in the Heavy Woollen Sunday League. 

In the Premier League St John Fisher climbed back to the top after Matthew Bugg (two) and Richard Newman saw off the challenge of AFC Chickenley in a 3-2 win, Shaun McDaid hitting both goals for Chickenley who lie in fifth place.

Woodman Batley Carr climbed to sixth after a hat-trick from Nikki Croisdale, a brace from Dom Karimi and a strike from Joe Rhodes saw off the challenge of bottom side Heckmondwike Sports Club in a 6-0 win.

Deighton WMC moved up to sixth place in Division One after Coron Rowe and Jamie Pearson netted in a 2-1 win over Birstall St Patricks, who had Simon Brady on target.

Division Two leaders Overthorpe Sports Club Reserves increased their lead at the top to six points after they won 4-2 against third placed Westgate 23.

Dominic Simpson hit a brace for Overthorpe with Tom Hirst and Ryan Pickup also on target. Westgate’s replies came from Josh Parker and Logan Hall.

Roberttown Rovers booked their place in the Heavy Woollen Sunday Trophy final after winning an exciting game against Saville Arms 4-2.

Andrew Asquith, Nathan Mc Daid, Dean Vernon and Adam Williams all netted to book a place in the final against either Snowdon or Scholes Athletic.

Snowdon had James Heeley (two) and Irfan Ali to thank for booking their place in the semi-final after their game with St Ignatius ended 3-3.

Snowdon progressed after penalties and face Scholes Athletic in the penultimate round. Rob Smith, Bunn Darboe and Alex Spurr scored for St Ignatius.
