WEST Bowling moved to the top of the Bradford Sunday Alliance League Premier Division with a 4-3 home win over previous leaders Station Hotel.

Station started strongly, taking the game to Bowling, but after 26 minutes, the hosts took the lead.

A counter attack following a Station corner, involving Wayne Sparkes, Kenny Tafireyi and Joe Jagger, ended with the latter slotting his shot home to make it 1-0.

Bowling's keeper Ash Onitiri had to make a good save before Jagger then saw a free kick come back off the post.

After 42 minutes, Station equalised when Connor Bower chipped home, but on the stroke of half-time, Onitiri sent a long pass to Karl Fawcett, who controlled the ball then flicked it up for Jagger to volley home and make it 2-1 to Bowling.

After a good Onitiri save, Station equalised through an Aran Basi penalty, before debutant Ben McCready and Fawcett helped set up Jagger for his hat-trick to put Bowling back in front.

Station were not finished yet, as an Andy Benjamin cross into the box saw Danny Cunningham score to make it 3-3.

But with time running out, Bowling got a free-kick when Tafireyi was fouled just outside the box.

Up stepped Bowling's free-kick maestro Jagger, who hammered his shot into the bottom corner of the net to score his fourth and settle this seven-goal thriller.

Westwood Park went second after thumping Sandy Lane 6-2, while Crossflatts Village are level on points with them, Bowling and Station after winning a pulsating home game against Bradford Moor YSA 4-3.

Substitute Ben Crispin was in the right place at the right time to secure his side all three points.

The defending champions went 2-0 up thanks to goals from Craig Morris and Adam Simpson, but then the away side pulled one back through Mohammed Zakariyah.

Morris scored his second of the game before the break and restored the home side’s two-goal lead.

Simpson had to come off with a calf strain at the interval, and he was replaced by Crispin, who slotted into the centre of midfield.

The away side levelled proceedings in the second half when Zakariyah scored his second and third goals to complete an impressive treble.

Flatts then pushed on, squandering three easy chances, but they keep persisting in their pursuit for a winner, which they eventually got after 80 minutes.

James Gill sauntered through the Bradford Moor defence, before seeing his shot parried by the keeper.

Thankfully for the home side, Crispin was on hand to tap home the rebound and secure the victory.

Village manager Steve Lewis said afterwards: “We started well but then we made a few sloppy mistakes and let them back into it at 3-3.

“We then went all out for the winner and we got it in the end - but it should have been a lot more comfortable than it was.

“That’s four wins from five games and we aren’t playing at our best so I will take that.

“Ryan Jeffery and Jack Lewis, our wing-backs, were awarded joint man-of-the-match. They both put in fantastic displays.”

Elsewhere in the division, Olympic pulled off a surprise, and thrilling, 5-4 win at Wrose Bull, while Bolton Woods crushed AFC Wibsey 6-0 away from home.

In the Championship, Danyal Yasin and Waheed Khan both hit hat-tricks as new leaders Thornbury Celtic thumped Keighley Town 10-1.

They snatched top spot off Prospect, who lost 3-1 at fellow high-flyers Peacock Bar.

Like Prospect, Low Moor lost their 100 per cent record after going down 4-3 in an exciting clash at home to Bankfoot.

East Bierley Village picked up just their second win of the season after an extraordinary 8-6 success at AFC Titans, while Throstle Nest United thumped FC Dog & Gun 7-1 thanks to hat-tricks from Michael Ruthven and Eliot Gregory.

Heaton Athletic beat FC Queensbury 2-0.

RISlondon remain top of Division One after winning 4-2 at home to Thornton United, while Newline remain level on points with them after a narrow 2-1 victory at Windhill Ajax.

The other game in that division on Sunday saw FC Mill Lane down winless Woodlands 4-2 away from home.

Down in Division Two, Thackley Juniors 2003 Athletic produced an extraordinary performance to win 9-2 at previous high-flyers Lincoln Barbers. Felan Panwar netted four times in the rout.

But they are still not top, having played one game less than leaders Beldon Oddies Reserves, who remained at the summit with a routine 3-0 home win over Esholt.

A strong Bolton Woods Socials side also emerged victorious, winning 5-3 at Buttershaw St Paul's.

AFC Wibsey Reserves earned a good 4-1 win at Swaine Green, while bottom pair AFC Undercliffe and Clayton Athletic played out an enthralling 5-5 draw.

In Division Three, previous leaders Northern were without a game, meaning Shipley Allstars went top by virtue of their 4-1 win over Bierley Bantams.

St Bede's are level with them on goal difference at the summit, as they beat Idle United 4-1.

The only other game in that division on Sunday saw Whitburn Athletic grab an excellent 6-1 home win over Shuttle Athletic 2019.
