Littletown go top

LITTLETOWN FC have gone top of the West Riding County Amateur League Premier Division thanks a 2-0 away win over title-challengers Huddersfield YMCA.

Joe Jagger and George Porter grabbed the goals for Littletown, which gave the Beck Lane side their second win over rivals Huddersfield in as many weeks following a Premier Division Cup victory on October 22.

Littletown are now a point clear at the top and have two games in hand on their closest challengers.

The league leaders prepare for the County FA Challenge Cup tomorrow (Sat, 2pm) when they face Goole AFC Academy.

It was a good week in the Premier Division with Honley and Lower Hopton both securing vital wins to ease their relegation fears.

Lower Hopton beat third-placed Salts 5-0 with a hat-trick from Nathan James and a brace courtesy of Matthew Bugg.

Salts had Nathan Hartley sent off.

Lower Hopton’s next outing is against Brighouse Town Development (Sat Nov 12, 2pm) in the County FA Challenge Cup.

Meanwhile Honley edged out fifth-placed Steeton 3-2 on the road. The win climbs Honley to ninth in the West Riding County Amateur top flight ahead of their Premier clash with Halifax Irish tomorrow (Sat Nov 5, 2pm).

And finally Overthorpe Sports Club remain rooted to the foot of the Premier Division following a 4-1 defeat at home to Newsome FC.

The visitors netted through Joel Bryce, Paul Pyke, Wayne Shooter and Connor Sykes and despite Bryce receiving a red card the hosts could only manage one goal in reply from the boot of Nicki Croisdale.

Overthorpe hope to bounce back when they host Golcar United (Sat Nov 12, 2pm) for a crucial league encounter.
