Mirfield Town set for second with final win

MIRFIELD Town can still claim second spot in the Heavy Woollen Premier Division if they win their one remaining game against AFC Chickenley by more than four goals this weekend.

Linthwaite have already clinched the title with a 3-1 win at second-placed Navigation. 

Frazier Swarbrook was Navigation’s scorer, but Linthwaite are now uncatchable and still have three games remaining. 

Deighton WMC lead the Championship by four points after they demolished bottom-side Overthorpe Sports Club 12-0. 

Robert Evans hit a double as Old Bank WMC kept the pressure on the leaders with a 2-1 win over Ravenswharfe, Ben Smith replied for the visitors. 

Old Bank still have three games to play and can steal the title should Deighton fail to win either of their final two matches. 

Clifton Rangers won 5-0 at home to Mount Pleasant thanks to a brace from Andrew Wojciechowski, plus one each from Alex Barnes, Matthew Canavan and Elliott Collins. 

Wellington Westgate still have six games to play and mathematically could still finish top should results go their way, though it would be highly improbable, after Zak Waddington (two), Jonathan Reilly, Brett McDonagh and Mark McSherry all netted in a 5-0 win at struggling Scholes Athletic.

In the only Division One game to take place Inter Batley beat Wike Horse 11-2.
