Tough start in top division for new boys

Veterans League

A preview of Division 1 and 2 matches to be played on Tuesday 18 April

The two teams promoted into Division 1 for this season, Lowerhouses and Milnsbridge 'A' have found the going tough and both are still looking for their first wins of the season. Things don't get any easier for them this week as Milnsbridge entertain the reigning Champions Golcar Lib 'A' and Lowerhouses have to go to Marsh United 'A' who had a great away win at the Champions last Tuesday.

The leaders, Lockwood Con 'A', have the day off this week leaving Longwood with the opportunity to go top if they can clock up a third win when they host Rastrick. The teams in 4th and 5th places go head-to-head when Cowcliffe have home advantage over Kirkheaton Con 'A'.

Waterloo are at the foot of the table and will need no other win incentive when playing Meltham who will still be high after a 9-0 home win from last week.

The two Lindley teams continue to set the pace at the top of Division 2 and both will be looking to build on their unbeaten starts to the new season. Lindley Lib 'A' have a one point lead but have to travel to play Almondbury BC 'A' who were surprisingly beaten at home on the opening day of the season. No match last week so they will be keen to reassure all their Fantasy League supporters that the favourites tag has some foundation and the defeat was a one-off. Lindley BC 'A' could pass their neighbours in the table as they have a home tie, where they are as strong as ever, against Broad Oak 'A'.

Netherton Con 'A' have won both of their opening fixtures by the same close 5-4 scoreline and would settle for the same again this week when they go to play Thongsbridge 'A'. Shepley have lost their first two fixtures by the same 4-5 scoreline and that may be the best they can hope for this week when visiting Bradley & Colne who always have a good home record.

Divisions 3, 4 & 5 previews coming soon
