Bordman’s treble of trebles deserves centre stage, though, with his amazing haul supplemented by goals from George Green, Tom Riordan and Scott Molloy. Deighton replied through Kadean Fogarthy and Brian Bradshaw but stay third bottom and now only three points clear of second-bottom Birstall St Patricks.

Birstall enjoyed a rare win, sealing a narrow 6-5 victory at fourth-bottom Marsh thanks to a hat-trick from Jean-Marie Julienne, plus goals from Adam Swinden, Alex Arnold and Sam Tyrell. Marsh replied through a Marc Harrison brace, plus efforts from Marcus Newby, Liam Roe and Tyron Sagar.

Mirfield Town climbed to second place in the Premier Division with a 7-3 win over bottom side Overthorpe Sports Club. Reece Patterson and Jack Allerton fired Overthrow into a 2-0 lead after just 10 minutes, but four goals from Jonny Mitchell, a brace from Adam Brown plus a Michael Rounding strike saw Mirfield pull clear.

Allerton hit a late penalty for Overthorpe in a result that puts Mirfield two points behind leaders St John Fisher whose game was postponed.
