WROSE Bull survived a major scare in the Bradford Sunday Alliance Senior Cup, winning a crazy game 6-5 against Thornbury Celtic.

Wrose are struggling in the top flight, with just three wins from 12 games, but would have fancied their chances on Sunday against Division One opponents.

But Thornbury have won all of their eight league games so far, and took that form into the cup.

They were denied in the end, but only thanks to a fabulous hat-trick from Bull’s Andy Howland, which put his side into the third round.

Bolton Woods advanced to the quarter finals by beating Park Pub 5-2, while Oakenshaw edged out RISlondon 2-0 to book their place in the last eight.

There was only league game in the Premier Division, but it was a big one. Leaders Crossflatts Village extended their advantage at the summit by beating poor Station Hotel 2-1, who had suffered cup agony less than 48 hours earlier against West Bowling.

Peacock Bar are still in the Championship title race, and they snuck past AFC Wibsey 4-3. Fellow challengers Heaton Athletic and Bradford Moor YSA also won, 4-2 and 2-1 against AFC Titans and Keighley Town respectively.

Leaders Queensbury had a home walkover against Hope and Anchor while Prospect, who have only played 10 games, also won, beating East Bierley Village 2-0.

In Division One, Bolton Woods Socials earned a remarkable 7-2 away win at fellow strugglers Eccleshill Lane Ends, while it was a quieter affair in the top of the table clash between Low Moor and Throstle Nest United, with the former winning 1-0.

Beldon Oddies beat rock-bottom White Hart 3-0.

Division Two title challengers AFC Titans had to settle for one point after a thrilling 4-4 draw at mid-table Delius.

That slip up would have come as a great relief to the top two, Windhill Ajax and Clayton Albion, who drew 2-2 with each other.

Connor Kirkby netted six times as Great Horton thumped strugglers Clayton Athletic 8-0.

Prospect Reserves won 2-1 at Buttershaw St Paul, while Woodlands won by the same scoreline against AFC Wibsey Reserves.

Royal Clayton's Division Three title charge took a hit, as they lost 2-1 at Albion Sports Sunday. That allowed Beldon Oddies Reserves to move further clear at the summit, as they thumped Park Avenue Juniors Old Boys 6-0.

Lincoln Barbers overtook Royal Clayton to go second, surviving a scare to beat Esholt 4-3 in a cracking contest.

AFC Undercliffe are not out of the title race themselves, but they were under-par in only beating winless Hunsworth 3-2.

Garden Shed AFC 2019 were more impressive, as they thrashed mid-table rivals St Bede's 5-1.

Finally, AFC Prince of Orange had an excellent day in the Sunday Alliance Intermediate Cup, with Damien Doyle’s double helping them wrap up a 5-1 home win over Northern Reserves.
