Shock loss as Sunday League returns

Shock loss as Sunday League returns

THE HEAVY Woollen Sunday League bounced back to life after last week’s weather-based postponements with second-placed Premier side Deighton WMC suffering a 6-2 loss at the hands of Mirfield Town. 

Town climbed to third place after a Kieran Corley double, plus strikes from Gibril Bojang, Daniel Asquith, Harry Stead and Michael Rounding, saw them claim the three points despite Adam Hill’s brace for Deighton.

Roberttown Rovers moved up to fourth after Scott Lightowler, Capi Khan and Tom Ramsden all found the net in a 3-1 win over Wellington Westgate, who replied through Lee Bradshaw.

With neither of the top two Championship sides in league action, third-placed Snowdon failed to make up any ground as they lost away in a pulsating game at Overthorpe Sports Club. 

Bilal Mir put Snowdon ahead but Steve Swift fired in from a corner to equalise before half-time. Corey Schofield bagged the winner for the hosts midway through the second half to set up a tight finish, but the hosts held on to win. 

Ravenswharfe lie in fourth place after Duane Fascione (two) and Jake Milburn scored in a 3-3 draw at bottom side Clifton Rangers Reserves.

Much-improved Clifton Rangers Athletic lie in sixth place after they won 6-4 against Inter Batley. Martin Wagstaff led the way with a brace for Clifton, who also had Nathan Wood, Kieran Gallagher, Bradley Main and Liam Bushby on the scoresheet. Awab Ahmed and Karim Abdullah were among Inter’s scorers. 

Wire Works had James Hamlet and an own goal to thank as they drew 2-2 at home to Battyeford, who replied through Jon MacDonald and James Rawlins.

In the West Riding Sunday Cup there were wins for FC Walkers Hounds, who won 4-3 against West Bowling, and Linthwaite, who hammered Bramham 10-2. Clifton Rangers’ campaign ended in a 5-3 loss at Cock and Bottle. 

The league’s last remaining side in the County Trophy also exited the competition last week as Mount Pleasant lost 6-0 to Shepherd’s Arms.
