Five out of five in Bradford rampage
There was a full house of wins for the five Toolstation Northern Counties East League clubs in the Bradford area, with Albion Sports and Thackley now the only two Premier Division teams with their 100 per cent start intact.
Albion are at the summit on goal difference after a 4-0 victory at Armthorpe Welfare, with two goals in each half seeing them to a comfortable success.
Skipper Asif Hussain broke the deadlock from the penalty spot on the half-hour mark after Danny Brown had been fouled in the area.
Brown added the second himself with an individual effort minutes later and substitutes Joel Ettienne, on his return from injury, and Danny Facey were on target in the second half.
Thackley had to come from a goal down at home against Heanor Town but remain joint-top with neighbours Albion courtesy of a 2-1 verdict.
Courey Grantham had put the visitors in front and although Thackley had to be patient, they fully deserved the points.
The Dennyboys created a host of chances before Nicky Matthews and Matt Mathers netted inside a two-minute spell late on.
Seventh-placed Brighouse Town had Ryan Hall to thank for their victory at Staveley MW. Hall rattled in all his side’s goals in a 4-2 win, two in each half, before Ashley Foyle and Liam Osborne replied late on.
There was also better news for Liversedge as they pulled off their first win of the season – but it was far from straightforward.
Sedge took the lead against fellow early strugglers Lincoln Moorlands Railway through Adam Jarrett and he soon added his second. But the visitors hit back to level with goals from Tony Law and Danny Pownell.
Sedge still took a lead into the break after Gibril Bojang’s 34th-minute strike and Bojang also bagged a brace before Pownell added his second with 20 minutes to play as it finished 4-3.
A dramatic late strike kept Eccleshill United on top of the Division One table, with Adam McCabe grabbing the all-important goal two minutes into time added on.
Lee Duxbury’s side now have 13 points from six games but the four clubs immediately behind them all have a game in hand.
