THE weather may be proving an enemy but at least the Bradford Sunday Alliance League have one internal cup final arranged.

Bradford Celtic will meet Mill Lane Reserves in the Amateur Cup showpiece at Manningham Mills on Sunday, April 22 after both won their respective semi-finals at Rawdon Meadows against fellow Division Three sides.

Mill Lane Reserves eased through 7-0 against Hounds Athletic after leading 4-0 at half-time, with Kyle James and Ashton Webster both bagging hat-tricks.

There was also a treble in the other semi-final, with Celtic leading 3-0 against Eccleshill Lane Ends at half-time courtesy of Mohammed Waheed Khan's treble.

Lane Ends fought back in the second half with strikes by Danny Paterson and Andy Scullion but Mill Lane had done just enough.

Meanwhile, Station Hotel increased their lead at the top of the of the Championship Division to 15 points, turning a 1-0 half-time advantage at Wyke Rangers into a 5-1 victory.

More good news came when it emerged that Crossflatts Village – Station's main rivals for the title – had only drawn 3-3 at Thornton United Reserves.

On target for the Villagers, who have four games in hand on Station, were Michael Garnett (2) and James Gill.

Daniel Farrar (3) and Lee Smith (2) led the way for mid-table Westwood Park in their 8-3 victory at relegation-threatened Harrogate Road.

Yet that tally was bettered by Tyersal, who are the new Division One leaders on goal difference after an 11-0 thrashing of hosts Steel Bangle Spartans.

It was only 2-0 at the interval but Luke Cook (4) and Adam Jarrett (3) cashed in in the second half.

Man of the match, however, was Josh Finan, who scored in the closing stages.

Beldon Oddies, who have dropped to second on goal difference (+50 against +52), won 5-1 at Queensbury.

It was another second-half blitz as 'Bury only trailed 1-0 at the interval, with Matthias Britton bagging a hat-trick.

Mill Lane rounded off a good weekend for the club with a 6-2 home victory over Shoulder of Mutton, substitute Leevan Moses making an impression with a hat-trick to add to Kyle Dyche's brace.

Division Two leaders Fairweather Green won by the same scoreline at home to Prospect Reserves, with Ryan Mahony (3) the leading sharp-shooter, closely followed by Brendan Maltby (2).

Beldon Oddies Reserves varied it a bit with a 6-1 triumph at George, with Craig Ricketts bagging a treble.
