LOWER Hopton took a huge stride towards lifting the West Riding County Amateur League title for the first time when they beat fellow Premier Division high-fliers Littletown 3-1 in midweek.

The leaders will be seeking another three points towards their goal as they host fourth-placed Golcar United, who topped the table for a chunk of the season but will be playing their final league game tomorrow.

Midweek victories for Wakefield City, 4-0 at home to Wibsey, and Thornton United, who were 4-1 winners at Ventus-Yeadon Celtic, boosted their promotion hopes in Division One.
