AFC Lions emerged victorious after a 6-4 thriller at Buttershaw St Paul's in Division Two of the Bradford Sunday Alliance League,with the lowly hosts putting up a real fight.

The visiting Lions remain in third after their victory, with an Aaron Parsons double vital to their success. It was only 2-2 as the teams went in at the break, but the superior visitors managed to pull away in the second half.

The torrential rain led to a depleted programme at the weekend, and there was only one other Division Two contest on Sunday.

In the derby, it was Clayton Athletic who emerged with a 2-0 away win over Clayton Albion.

The Premier Division did not see any action whatsoever, although West Bowling did at least gain three points to go top, after they were awarded a home walkover win against Northern.

There were three Championship games and the standout was a surprise 6-3 victory for Keighley Town over Park Pub.

Park, whose goals in this game came courtesy of Travis Cheetham, Ben Johnson and Jamie Templeton, missed the chance to go top, with leaders AFC Wibsey also crashing to defeat.

They lost 3-1 at FC Dog & Gun, who secured their fourth win of the season to jump up into fifth place.

With Park and Wibsey losing, Heaton Athletic joined them on 15 points after they edged out an improving FC Queensbury side 1-0.

Heaton have an inferior goal difference to Park and Wibsey, meaning they sit third.

Eccleshill Lane Ends have made a reasonable start in Division One, but they were brought crashing down to earth with an enormous 10-0 home defeat to unbeaten Thornbury Celtic.

White Hart, who made a bad start to the season, continued their excellent October with a 5-1 home victory over Thornton United, as Callum Brewster netted a hat-trick.

Elsewhere, Michael Ruthven scored twice as Throstle Nest United won 3-0 at Bramley United.

In Division Three, Beldon Oddies Reserves remain top. They beat Hunsworth 3-1, with Ben Cahill scoring twice.

Mid-table sides Lincoln Barbers and Northern Reserves had to settle for a 2-2 draw. Curtis Frain and Kyle Smith were on target for the Barbers, while Paul King and Tyler Marsh responded for Northern.

Finally, struggling Park Avenue Juniors Old Boys and Esholt did little to move away from the lower reaches of the table, as they also played out a 2-2 draw.
