Last unbeaten 6-man record goes

Veterans League Review of the 6-Man League fixtures played on 20 June

Marsh Lib are the new Division 3 leaders after disposing of the previous leaders, Golcar Lib, unbeaten record by 6-1 this week. That was the 6-man league's last unbeaten record of the season and it will be interesting to see how that changes teams' mindsets for the Golcar team and their main rivals for the title.

Almondbury Lib failed to take the anticipated step up offered them when going down 2-5 at Shepley 'B' and drop 2 places to 4th as a result. Hemplow announced their own involvement in the promotion tussle after beating Primrose Hill Lib 6-1 to go third and it now looks like there is a four-way battle for the two promotion places with just 4 points between the four contenders.

Finally, Brockholes 'B' have won their first match of the season with a great 5-2 home success over Greenhead Park and a wonderful 21-point aggregate advantage.

It is getting really congested at the top of Division 1 with only 4 points between the top 7 teams after this week's results. The top 3 teams were all playing away from home and all 3 lost 2-5 to open up the title race. Crosland Moor and Netherton Con being the two major benefactors of the week as they overcome top half rivals. Crosland Moor saw off second-placed Honley Con whilst the Netherton side beat third-placed Golcare C&BC. As a result Crosland Moor go from 4th to 2nd and Netherton stay 5th but now only 3 points off the top spot. Leaders Shepley also got beat going down to Lockwood Con who eased their relegation concerns as a result.

The bottom three teams in Division 2 all won their matches this week to throw wide open the relegation challenge. A 4-3 home win for bottom team Skel Windmill 'B' over Holmfirth 'A' was as welcome as it was surprising with the aggregate difference being the key factor in that scoreline.

Meltham's 5-2 away success at New Mill 'A' dragged the losers into the relegation mix and Paddock jumped two places to 6th after winning 5-2 at Lindley Lib 'B' who find themselves perilously close to the drop zone where the bottom 5 teams are now just separated by 5 points. Slaithwaite failed to take advantage of leaders Marsh United 'A' having a bye week but beating Clayton West on their own lawn was always a big ask which no other team has managed this season but they will be disappointed at going down 2-5 all the same.
