Veterans 6-Man League
There is some serious congestion at the top of Section B after the top two teams both suffered defeats this week. Now there are only 2 points between the top 6 teams and 8 of the 9 teams in this Section will consider themselves to be in the promotion race. At present the teams that have only played 4 matches appear to hold the upper hand, until they play each other of course. Fascinating scenario at present.
Golcar Lib, despite a 1-6 reversal at Meltham, retain top spot virtue of a better Aggregate For but are level on points with Honley Con who have a game in hand. That win shunted the Meltham team firmly into contention and again they have played a game less than the leaders. Marsh United lost second place after going down 2-5 at Golcar C&BC who move level with their opponents and have played a game less than them. Honley Con beat Skel Windmill 'B' 5-2 to present themselves as the immediate threat to the leaders and on a day when all 4 home sides won in this Section Skel Windmill 'A' find themselves right in the mix after beating Primrose Hill Lib who are 'Billy No-Mates' at the foot of the table.
Shepley 'A' have extended their lead and unbeaten run at the summit of Section A after a 5-2 home win over Thongsbridge 'B' whilst their nearest challengers, reigning Champions Netherton Con, slipped up at Paddock and dropped a place to present the home side with their first win of the season with an impressive 6-1 scoreline. That enabled Brockholes 'A' to move into second place after beating Crosland Moor 5-2. The only away team winner of the day was the Milnsbridge side at bottom team Lindley Lib with Oakfield now joining them in the relegation places after losing 2-5 at Longwood.
The battle of two unbeaten records in Section C resulted in a whitewash win for the home side as Almondbury Lib saw off Holmfirth 'B' by 7-0 and went to the top of the table as a result. Well-poised 2 points behind them sit Slaithwaite with a game in hand and another unbeaten history this season after their 6-1 home win over Brockholes 'B'. Holmfirth 'A' were the only winners in the bottom five when beating fellow strugglers Hemplow 5-2 and that, at least momentarily, eases their plight in pulling away from the lower regions.
