Salts draw derby clash to stay third
With the early-season evening games now concluded, West Riding County Amateur League clubs can concentrate on gaining league points before the early rounds of the County FA and local District FA Cup competitions start in October.
Salts’ 1-1 draw with their Bradford rivals Campion on Wednesday kept them in third place in the Premier Division behind leaders Ovenden West Riding, who had a 2-1 home win over reigning champions Bay Athletic.
Second-placed Huddersfield YMCA slipped up for the first time this season by losing 1-0 at Golcar United. Salts will be the first side to play Bay Athletic on their new ground at Northfield Hall in Brackenhall, Huddersfield on Saturday.
Tyersal make the long trip to Kirkburton, while Campion – who have another two weeks to wait before they can play at home on a Saturday due to them sharing their ground with Bradford League cricket side Manningham Mills – visit Hall Green United, who are still looking for their first point of the season after five games.
Steeton will play host to Storthes Hall, who have won three of their opening five games.
Three successive wins – during which they have scored 17 times – has swept Hunsworth to the summit of Division One.
They entertain newly-promoted Steeton Reserves, while second-placed Ventus Yeadon Celtic are at Salts Reserves and Wakefield City visit West Horton at Myra Shay.
