Away day in 6-Man League

Veterans League

Review of the fixtures in the 6-Man League played on Monday 27 May

Not a good day for home teams as 12 of the 20 matches in the 6-Man League played on Monday went the way of the away teams. In a sport where local knowledge and home green advantage key it is a surprisingly high number of away winners.

Division 1 was the worst of all as only 2 of the 7 matches were won by the home team. One of the away winners was in the top of the table clash where 2nd placed Waterloo

beat the leaders, Netherton Con 4-3. However that means that both teams drop places as they are overtaken by both Skel Windmill A and Marsh United A. They won away at Paddock I&C 7-0 and Crosland Moor 6-1 respectively.

Golcar C&BC missed out on the chance to go top when losing out by 2-5 away at Thongsbridge A. All this means that the top of the table congestion becomes ever more intense with only 8 points between the top ten teams. Very much in that mix is Lindley Lib A bouncing back from a week to forget when losing twice in three days to beat Brockholes A and overtake them in the table as they begin to climb back into contention.

Shepley A are now within one point of Slaithwaite after beating them on their own turf by 4-3 although they both find themselves in the bottom half of the table. Lockwood Con stay at the bottom of the table after losing 1-6 at home to Milnsbridge A who move up a place to 9th.

The gap between the top two teams in Division 2 narrowed after Golcar Lib had a resounding 7-0 home win over Greenhead Park A. The gap to the leaders is now only one point after Clayton West won 5-2 away at Linthwaite Hall. New Mill stay 3rd after beating Longwood 5-2 and a big 6-1 away win for Bradley & Colne at Holmfirth A saw the losers drop two places to 6th and be passed by the winners who moved into 5th place.

There were also 6-1 away wins for Marsh Lib at Almondbury Lib and Lindley Lib B at Hemplow. Elland C&BC continue to struggle at the foot of the table after an 8th successive defeat this time going down 1-6 at Milnsbridge B.

Denby Dale extended their Division 3 winning run to seven when winning 4-3 away at Marsh Lib B but still remain in second place as Brockholes B clocked up a 7-0 home win over bottom team Meltham to stretch their lead at the top to six points though they have played one more match then the Denby Dale team.
