Linthwaite remain two points clear at the top.

In the Championship, Old Bank WMC demolished The Yorkshireman 13-0, with Jonathan Mitchell bagging a magnificent seven goals. 

Bobby Evans fired a hat-trick, Luke Duncan hit a brace with Tom Frizzell completing the tally. Old Bank climb to fourth place, four points behind leaders Deighton WMC. 

Scholes Athletic won 8-6 at home to Clifton Rangers who had a hat-trick from Will Tolley and goals from Mitch Cummings, Jake Waterson and Alex Barnes accounting for their total.

Battyeford’s perfect record in Division One came to an end as they lost 5-1 at Snowdon. 

James Heeley led the way with a hat-trick, Irfan Ali and Atif Basharat were also on target in a result that sees Snowdon rise to third place. 

Clifton Rangers Reserves are in second place after Aaron Burnside (two), Lewis Moran, Luke Briggs, Joe Lawson, Leevan Brown and Billy Benton all found the net in a 7-0 win over St Ignatius. 

In the only other game played, Birstall St Patricks won 2-0 at Wike Horse thanks to strikes from Kieran Cooper and Joseph Smith.
