In-form Hanging Heaton on the road

Early-season leaders Hanging Heaton go to Lightcliffe tomorrow (Sat) looking to extend their 100 per cent record in the All Rounder Bradford Premier League’s Premier Division and keep their noses ahead of last year’s champions Pudsey St Lawrence, who go to struggling newcomers Scholes.

In the other Premier Division games third-placed Cleckheaton are at home to New Farnley, while in the Championship, although Batley lead the A Division with three wins out of three,  they will have a tough job on their hands at Baildon.

Birstall have struggled so far in Championship A but they are at least in familiar territory tomorrow when they go to old CYL rivals Hunslet Nelson while Ossett, at Undercliffe, and Liversedge, at Yeadon, are facing new challenges.

Championship B is currently led by a very strong-looking Townville side but Gomersal have made an encouraging start and they will be looking to keep that going when Bankfoot visit Oxford Road.

Spen Victoria, Hopton Mills and Hartshead Moor occupy three of the last four places in Championship B and tomorrow’s games don’t offer a lot of encouragement as Spen go to Methley, Hopton Mills are at Bowling Old Lane and bottom club Hartshead Moor entertain Wrenthorpe.

Crossbank Methodists chalked up their first win in the Conference last week, beating Rodley by 50 runs with a top-scoring 61 from Christian Duncan, but they have an enormous task if they are to get anything from a visit to Buttershaw St Paul’s.

The other game affecting the district is at Gildersome, where Heckmondwike and Carlinghow are the visitors.
