TYERSAL maintained their fine start to the season in the Bradford Sunday Alliance Premier Division, making it five wins from six with a gripping 4-3 victory at Bolton Woods.

The hosts have not made a great start to the season, with just one win so far, but they pushed their high-flying visitors all the way with goals from Jordan Buck (2) and Andrew McHugh.

However, Wayne Broxholme, Danny Farrar, Bradley Holmes and substitute Jeremiah Witter all found the net to ensure a narrow victory.

That allowed Tyersal to move level on points with leaders Crossflatts, who were without a game, and another team who closed the gap at the top were West Bowling.

They moved two points off the summit by hammering Wrose Bull 6-1. Paul Hague scored a hat-trick, Liam Charles netted twice, and Thomas Skelly was also on target. Johnny Dearing grabbed a consolation for Wrose.

The other Premier Division match on Sunday saw Oakenshaw thrash lowly Northern 5-1. There were braces for Andrew Atkinson and Patrick Sykes, while Marcus Edwards also got his name on the scoresheet.

Championship leaders AFC Wibsey lost an enthralling match 5-3 at home to fellow high-flyers Bradford Moor YSA. The star turn for Bradford Moor was Mohammed Ismaeel, who scored a brilliant treble.

That allowed Park Pub to move level with Wibsey, having played two games less. They were pushed all the way by struggling Peacock Bar, but emerged as 3-2 winners thanks to a Luke Smith double.

Keighley Town almost picked up a second point of the season, but they eventually went down 3-2 at home to Fairweather Green WMC, due to Ben O'Melia's 70th minute winner.

FC Queensbury got their first three points of the season with a thrilling 5-3 win at another struggling side, AFC Titans, who lost despite goals from Paul Hickey, Gary Lee and Sam Thornton.

Elsewhere in that division, Heaton Athletic were 6-0 winners at fellow mid-table side East Bierley Village.

In an extraordinary scoreline, Rattlers got just their second Division One win of the season by dismantling rock-bottom White Hart 15-2.

Throstle Nest United are second-bottom, but they gave leaders FC Mill Lane a real fright. Goals from Michael Ruthven (2) and Samuel Westerman gave them a chance, but they eventually succumbed to a 4-3 defeat.

Low Moor maintained their unbeaten start to the season by thumping RISlondon 4-0, thanks mainly to a Kyle Leighton-Bingham hat-trick.

Mid-table sides Thornton United and Eccleshill Lane Ends played out a 2-2 draw. Hechem Naat and James Smith were on target for United, while Daniel Patefield and Taylor Thompson Foley replied for Lane Ends.

Elsewhere, George Hotel FC 2018 got their first win of the season, beating fellow strugglers Bolton Woods Social 4-2, while Bramley United beat Beldon Oddies 5-3.

In Division Two, Windhill Ajax earned their first three points of the season in spectacular fashion, beating Buttershaw St Paul 11-0 with a hat-trick from Matt Mathers and two goals each from Ben Cawley and Lewis Dean.

Drop Kick United Open Age also won big, with an impressive 7-1 success over AFC Wibsey Reserves, whose consolation came courtesy of Matthew Artist.

Prospect Reserves moved to within two points of leaders Great Horton, who did not play on Sunday, with a hard-fought 2-2 draw at AFC Lions courtesy of goals from Liam Goodaire and Jamal Nash.

Meanwhile, high-flying Delius edged out Clayton Albion 2-1.

In wet and windy conditions at Peel Park, Division Three side AFC Undercliffe dominated throughout their clash against AFC Lions Seconds, with a trio of hat trick heroes in an 11-0 victory.

Sam Cummings, Niall Brame and Cameron Needham all bagged three, with a brace from Declan Brame, who came on from the bench 10 minutes after half-time.

They are being kept off top spot by Northern Reserves, who thrashed Hunsworth 11-3 in their clash at Laisterdyke Cricket Club.

It was a day full of goals in Division Three, with Garden Shed AFC 2019 pulling off a stunning 8-4 win at high-flying Beldon Oddies Reserves.

Hat-tricks from Jordan Mortimer and Daniel Pattison proved key, while Ryan Murgatroyd and Jack Rochester also netted.

Royal Clayton's game seemed tame by comparison, but they will still be happy with their 3-2 home win over Lincoln Barbers, courtesy of strikes from Joshua Wilson, Raymond Worby and Liam Holmes.
