Slaithwaite promoted, title next

Veterans League

Review of the 6-Man League fixtures played on Monday 4 September

Slaithwaite's 6-1 home win over Denby Dale clinched their promotion place this week and they just need 4 points from their last three fixtures to add the Division 2 title to that achievement as well. That is the first title, promotion or relegation issue to be resolved in the 6-Man League so far this season so congratulations to them.

Lindley Lib 'A' took a huge step forward to claiming the second promotion place by beating their main rival for that honour when seeing off Paddock I&C 4-3 in a hard fought win. Lindley Lib 'B' team's chances took a hit when they went down 2-5 at Clayton West whilst in the lower regions Linthwaite did their survival hopes a power of good when having a 6-1 home win over Milnsbridge 'B'. That put some daylight between themselves and the bottom two who both lost their away fixtures 1-6. Denby Dale at Slaithwaite and Skel Windmill 'B' at Almondbury Lib.

It was a great couple of results for New Mill in Division 3 either side of the weekend which took them to the top of the table. A 6-1 home win over previous leaders Marsh Lib on Monday to add to Friday's 6-1 away win at Thongsbridge 'C' and that took their unbeaten run to 9 matches and a 5-points lead at the top.

Greenhead Park won't be shaken off and a 5-2 away win at Shepley 'B' keeps them with a vested interest in the second promotion place but reliant on the top two slipping up with only 3 matches left to play.

A 6-1 away win for Marsh United 'A' at Elland C&BC left them needing only 3 points from their last 3 fixtures to take the Division 1 title. They were aided by a surprising 1-6 home defeat for their closest rivals Skel Windmill 'A' with Golcar C&BC having an eye on that runners-up spot after a 5-2 away win at Crosland Moor with a match in hand and now only 6 points adrift.

That defeat for the Moor left them heavily involved in the relegation battle with the bottom four teams all losing on Monday. Lockwood Con are being dragged back into that relegation soup after a 0-7 away defeat at Milnsbridge 'A' with the three teams below them all losing but picking up vital points along the way.
