Mirfield Town and Woodman draw

The top two sides in the Heavy Woollen Sunday League Premier Division were due to meet last Sunday, but St John Fisher's game with leaders Birstall Cricket Club fell foul to the wet weather – as did many other matches.

Mirfield Town stayed in third place after Gibril Bojang hit both goals in a 2-2 draw at lowly Woodman Batley Carr, who earned a point through a Nikki Croisdale double.

Woodkirk Valley remain in fourth after a Tesseyman hat-trick, a brace from Downey plus an own goal saw them win 6-3 against Mount Pleasant, who replied through Faisal Adam, Abdullah Mayat and Adam Rawat.

In the Championship only one game took place, and that saw Clifton Rangers race into a four-goal lead at Overthorpe Sports Club, however five goals from Lee Brook plus another from Elliot Brooke saw Overthorpe claim the three points in a thrilling 6-5 win.

Saville Arms continued their bid for automatic promotion from Division One with a 6-0 win over Birstall St Patricks thanks to goals from Scott Ryan, Patrick Davies, Kieran Corley, Saul Lee, Daniel Damen and Jack


Saville lie in third spot, four points behind leaders Roberttown Rovers, but only two points behind Scholes Athletic who are second.

With the top two sides in Division Two not in action, third-placed Westgate 23 consolidated their position after Josh Parker, Connor Lyons, Logan Hall, Alex Wilson and Craig Reynolds all netted in a 5-0 win at Snowdon.

Dewsbury United also enjoyed an emphatic win, thrashing bottom side Wike Horse 10-1, Jamie Beever and Ross Ewart both fired hat-tricks, Michael Thompson hit a brace with Danny Laidlaw and Jack Smith completing Dewsbury’s tally.
