BRADFORD (Park Avenue) played their second of three games in a row against Wakefield Trinity in the North East Regional Women's Football League South Division, and will hope for better in Sunday's final instalment, after losing this clash 5-1.

Avenue's goalkeeper Nic Chamberlain had a good game, but her team went 2-0 behind with goals either side of the break.

On the hour mark,Wakefield scored another, but Alice McUrich's efforts were rewarded as she pulled one back for Bradford with a fine strike.

Trinity's Becky Fury then netted a 30-yard screamer, before Carly Doyle completed the scoring on 67 minutes.

Despite losing 5-1, it was a much-improved Avenue, who never gave up and came close to scoring several times. The performance should inspire confidence for this weekend's game at Fitzwilliam.

Bradford City Women will just be hoping for any sort of game, after their FA Women's National League Plate clash with Leeds United Ladies was postponed for the second time due to bad weather. That match is now set to take place on November 3.

Next up, City travel to Bolton Wanderers on Sunday for an FA Women's National League Division One North fixture. City's Reserves visit Brighouse Town on the same day in the FAWNL Reserve Division One.

Elsewhere, Farsley Celtic remain unbeaten in the NERWFL Premier Division after their 1-1 draw at Wallsend.

Just before half-time, Dee Swales' tap-in gave Farsley the advantage, but an 89th-minute screamer denied them the full three points.

In the West Riding County Women's Football League Premier Division, Yorkshire Amateur's Elly Field scored a hat-trick against her old club Silsden, who lost 8-0 despite a second-half revival and a good performance from Rebecca Seward.

Locally, Thackley Reserves raced to a 6-0 first-half lead against West End Terriers, ending the game 7-0 with a pair of braces from Jess Maurice and Hope Nicoll, with Tara Kirby and Megan Howell also on the scoresheet.

This weekend, they are at Farsley Junior Development, who gained their first points of the season with a 3-2 victory over Ackworth.
