Joe Jagger (pictured) was the hat-trick hero as Littletown made it consecutive league wins with a 3-2 success over Tyersal, writes Rob Conlon.

Visitors Tyseral, who are rooted to the foot of the Premier Division, were looking for only their second three points of the campaign and went into the interval level at 1-1 thanks to Dave Geddes’ goal.

However, Jagger completed his treble in the second half to snatch the win for Littletown, who are now 10th.

Third-placed Ovenden West Riding travelled to Halifax Irish and came out resounding 11-1 victors.

Andrew Bailey helped himself to a hat-trick while Andy Gregory and John Booth bagged braces as Ovenden scored nine second half goals.

Glynn Beale, Jay Carney, Robbie Graham and Jordan Coduri completed the route, with Steve Galloway notching Irish’s consolation.

Strugglers Kirkburton hosted Storthes Hall and were taught a lesson by the fourth place visitors as they were beaten 5-1.

Marcus Walmsley hit a hat-trick for Storthes Hall with Gavin Armitage adding two of his own.

Kirkburton had a sole Jordan Tindle strike to show for their efforts as they remain five points off the bottom of the table.

Elsewhere Huddersfield YMCA drew level on points with their opponents Hunsworth as Dwayne Wilkinson’s first half goal was enough to secure a hard-fought 1-0 away victory.

In Division One Wakefield City continued their impressive form with a 3-0 win at Storthes Hall Reserves to move up to second.

Rob Bloomfield and Paul gave City a commanding 2-0 lead at the break before Gary Driscoll rounded off a comfortable win by adding a third.

City are ten points off leaders Ventus Yeadon Celtic but have three games in hand on their rivals.

Celtic are still to be beaten this season as they travelled to Overthorpe Sports Club and came away with a 3-1 success.

Joel Etienne, Nat Dacres and Danny Backhouse all struck to guarantee the triumph meaning Celtic have now gone 11 league games without defeat.

A Craig Thompson double helped second bottom DRAM Community win what could turn out to be a crucial point away at Wibsey.

Thompson notched either side of half-time but his efforts were cancelled out by Daniel O’Donnell and Dave Haley goals for the home side.

Thornes bounced back from defeat last time out to beat 3-2 at Steeton Reserves.

Ben Long and Ben Austin gave Thornes what looked to be a comfortable 2-0 lead at half-time but Steeton fought back and scored through Ben Sutcliffe and Joshua Ferguson before John Moran snatched the three points.

Elsewhere Westbrook YMCA won 3-1 at Campion Reserves.

In Division Two Littletown Reserves moved second after thrashing Tyersal Reserves 7-2.

Ateek Hussain and Stanford Bube provided a helping hand for Littletown as both hit doubles.
