Adam Wiliams scored the decisive goal for fourth-placed Littletown who also have games in hand over respective top three Horsforth St Margarets, Farsley Celtic Juniors and Wortley.

While second-placed Farsley weren’t in action, Charlie Lumley and Laurie Power were among the goals in leaders Horsforth’s 3-1 victory over Athletico.

Third-placed Wortley returned to the fray with a 5-3 win at Toller FC. Brendan Maltby hit a hat-trick for the hosts but it was more than cancelled out by strikes from Joe Cryer, Joseph Hudson (2), John Mallinson and Ryan Sharrocks. Elsewhere, seventh-placed Calverley United notched seven goals against Matthew Kilner’s sole strike for visitors Lower Hopton.

Goals from Alistair Lewis and Marc Saunders secured a 2-0 win for Leeds City at Drighlington, the same scoreline achieved by hosts Ryburn United over Leeds Medics & Dentists.

The really big score of the day, however, came between mid-table rivals Route One Rovers and Stanley United. The Wakefield side managed three goals through Nathan Faint, Josh Whiteley and substitute Joe Childs, but Route One were relentless in their desire to find the back of the net - and they did it eight times in total.

Second-placed Farsley return to action on Saturday - at home to Route One so that encounter is likely to give a clearer indication of just how far Rovers have improved in the intervening weeks since lockdown restrictions.
