There was again a full programme of league matches in the Bradford Sunday Alliance League yesterday.
In the Premier Division, Buttershaw White Star lost their 100 per cent record for this season when newly-promoted Stanningley Albion held them to a goalless draw at Manningham Mills. The visitors came closest to breaking the deadlock when they hit the woodwork in the closing stages.
Peel Park took an early lead against champions West Bowling through Alan Morley jnr but the defending champions were too strong for the top-flight newcomers and ran in seven goals, Phil Brogan hitting a hat-trick to add to a brace from Jimmy Hall and strikes from Chris Wood and Stuart McCallum as they went top.
Wyke Wanderers have recovered from a poor start to the season and beat George Hotel with goals from Josh Hans, Chris Edmundson, Sam Holmes and Glyn Hirst in a 4-1 victory.
In Division One, Victoria Rangers and Lane Ends shared two goals and the points in an entertaining match, with Dale Howard scoring first for the visitors and Danny Firth equalising for Vics.
Buttershaw Celtic and Manningham had a three-goal match at Buttershaw, with the hosts edging the result with goals from Dan O'Donnell and Nathan Ramsden.
Swaine Green and Apperley Bridge shared the points from Division 1B, all six goals being scored in the second half.
The hosts scored the goal of the game with two minutes remaining, new signing Jordan Horsfall latching on to a through ball to net a stunning strike from 30 yards, but unfortunately it wasn't the winner as the visitors had one final attack and scored to make it 3-3.
Other Goals for the home team were scored by Gary Sunderland and Ben Cook. Man of the match for Swaine Green was Mark Buckenham in his new central midfield position.
Cuedos Rangers and White Eagles battled out a 1-1 draw which leaves Cuedos in third with seven points after four games, while White Eagles lie eighth with four points from four games.
In Division 2B, Grass Greener United took the points against Buttershaw Rangers with strikes from Aaron Oddy, Adam Boocock, Chris Sedgwick and Karl Parratt.
Park beat Eccleshill Punjab by the odd goal in three in Division 3A with strikes by Damian Melvyn and Jamie Brannon.
Grass Greener United's second string made it a double victory for the club as they beat Clayton Village Reserves 6-3 with goals from Paul Tarbotton (3), James Brown, Joel Hesp and Alan Cuff.
This is only the second occasion since the club have been formed that both teams have had victories on the same day
