Due to District Cup matches and the poor weather only eight games took place in the Heavy Woollen Sunday League.

In the Premier Division, Woodman Batley Carr maintained their fourth place with a 2-2 draw at Oakwell Motel. Lee Brook and Jason Milner netted for Woodman with Oakwell replying through Ashley Fallas and Troy Bagshaw.

In the Championship Heckmondwike Sports Club remain in fourth place after Ross Palframan bagged a brace and Ben McClean the other in a 3-1 win at bottom side Ravenswharfe, who replied through Stefan Madden. Elsewhere Town Rangers enjoyed a 5-0 win over Marsh, who immediately resigned from the league.

The Yorkshireman are in second place in Division One, albeit eight points behind leaders Hanging Heaton Cricket Club, after they won 6-0 at bottom side Birkenshaw Reserves.

Scholes Athletic climbed to fifth place after a Jonathan Irving double, plus a Michael Hutton strike saw off the challenge of FC Liversedge in a 3-2 win, Chris Trott and Daniel Fawcett replying for the away side.

Desmond Manso and Alex Spurr earned a point for St Ignatius as they came back from two nil down to draw 2-2 at Clifton Rangers Reserves.

In Division Two Rose of York climbed to third after Matthew Bolton (brace), Nathan McDaid, Dean Vernon and Luke Hemmings all scored in a 5-4 win against Snowdon, who replied through a Shakeel Pandor hat-trick plus a goal from Ebrahim Akudi. Danny Marshall (two), Craig Fryer and Tom Hirst put Overthorpe Sports Club Reserves in control at Clifton Rangers A, but the home side hit back to win 5-4.

In the Claro League, Wetherby Athletic climbed into third place with a 2-0 win at Harrogate CSC in Division One.

Josh Barden got both goals for Athletic as they leapt above Atlanta, who held leaders Bramham to a 2-2 draw at home.

Jonathan Holmes and Andrew Maxted hit the target for Bramham but were cancelled out by efforts from Ben Parker and Kyle Dunn. Markington’s home game against Harrogate Cosmos and Sherwood’s trip to Showbiz Whites were both postponed. Harry Wilson’s hat-trick gave Bramham Reserves a meaty 6-2 success at home to Headingley Rovers in Division Two. Danny MacMahon, Richard Craven and Kyle MacDonald were also on the scoresheet. Elsewhere, Hampsthwaite United beat Shadwell 2-0 and AFC Horsforth Old Boys beat FC Harrogate 3-1.

Meanwhile, the Claro Sunday League has had an application to extend its season turned down by the West Riding County FA.
