SALTS have extended their unbeaten run in the Premier Division of the West Riding County Amateur League to eight games.

A brace from Jamie Birchall and one each from Jonny Cunnington and Richard Magson gave them a 4-0 victory at Littletown.

Golcar United, who have played two fewer games than Salts, remain in second place, three points adrift, following a 6-2 home win against Thornton United.

Callum Meade (4), Jordan Tindall and Michael Tunnacliffe scored for the hosts, with Brendan Maltby and Kyle Brigham replying.

Route One Rovers have settled into the top flight following their promotion, and kicked off their home games at Esholt with a 7-1 trouncing of last season’s champions Lower Hopton.

Hassan Ali (3) was assisted by Waheed Khan (2), Jonathon Mwembie and Khurram Swazad, Liam Reilly netting Hopton’s consolation.

Steeton fell behind to a first-half strike from Britannia Sports' Nicky Kitson.

But the Keighley side dominated the second half and, while they rattled the visitors' woodwork, they could only manage to find an equaliser from Rory Judd.

A first-half strike from Jahro Parchment was sufficient to give Campion a 1-0 victory in their home game against Lepton Highlanders.

Meanwhile, Ovenden West Riding's 100 per cent start to their Division One season was dented when they bowed out of the Division One Cup.

Hosts West Horton gained revenge for their 7-1 thrashing in the league fixture the previous weekend with a 4-3 success.

Zain Ali (3) and James Chadwick were on target for West Horton, while Scott Eastwood, Terry Ryan and Jordan Wadsworth replied for Ovenden.

Salts Reserves eased into the next round with a 7-0 success at Bradford FC.

Andy Sadowskyj, Sam Shaw and Nathan Hartley each netted twice to add to one from Ryan Whitfield.   

However, TVR United, who were beaten by Lower Hopton Reserves in last season’s final, fell at the first hurdle, losing 2-1 at Tingley Athletic.

Hunsworth are still seeking their first win of the season, slipping out 5-1 at home to Overthorpe SC.
