Bradford Sunday Alliance League preview

Bradford Sunday Alliance League preview

First published in Sport by

Bolton Woods will have their fingers crossed as they aim to finally play their much-delayed West Riding County FA Sunday Cup tie at past-winners Thornhill Lees this weekend.

The fourth-round fixture has fallen victim to the weather on several occasions, with Bradford Sunday Alliance League clubs in general starting to build up a backlog of fixtures.

The forecast is not great again but Woods will be desperate to get the game in Dewsbury out of the way, with fellow Premier Division side Buttershaw White Star awaiting in the quarter-finals if they win.

League action sees top-flight leaders Sandy Lane needing to win at mid-table Wyke Wanderers to be sure of retaining pole position.

An slip-up would see them displaced unless West Bowling fail to win at home to basement side Mill Lane.

Third-placed White Star could also close the gap as they travel to face Peel Park, who are sixth.

Top match in Division One looks to be the clash between fourth-placed Manningham and leaders Buttershaw Celtic, while Napoleons Casino will be confident of enhancing second spot at rock-bottom Lane Ends.

Division 2A pace-setters Oddfellows Celtic face a tough test at home to third-placed Sporting Pudsey, with Aire Athletic ready to pounce in second as they visit cellar dwellers Bankfoot Lions.

In Division 3B, Lyceum will hope to play their first game since December as they entertain Grass Greener United A. Lyceum have lost just once in the league but find themselves sixth in the table with a mass of games in hand.
