ECCLESHILL United are on fire at the moment, and they moved up to third in the NCEL Premier Division in midweek with a thumping 6-0 win at Hemsworth Miners Welfare.

Welfare are struggling and are rooted to the foot of the table, but it was still a superb performance from Lee Elam's side.

The in-form Talent Ndlovu got the ball rolling for the Eagles with a fourth minute penalty, before Sumaili Cissa doubled their advantage with a fine half-volley on the half hour mark.

Luke Aldrich got in one-on-one after a mistake from a Hemsworth defender, and slotted the ball home to make it 3-0 at the break.

A neat move saw Aiden Day make it four after 63 minutes, with Alex Cusack poking home for Eccleshill's fifth.

But the best was saved until last, with Ndlovu netting a screamer from 30 yards out to make it 6-0 to the visitors.

Tenth-placed Albion Sports are the best of the rest of the Bradford sides in that division, but they suffered late heartbreak at home to high-flying Sherwood Colliery.

Robbie Fox's penalty early in the second half put Albion in front, before they were pegged back with 18 minutes remaining, Timothy Gregory netting the equaliser.

But worse was to come, with Albion conceding a penalty in injury time.

William Norcross converted it to snatch victory for the visitors.

Thackley have not had the greatest starts, only racking up 11 points from their opening 10 games to sit 15th.

The Dennyboys will feel they should have won on Tuesday night though, after Owen Murphy scored twice in the opening 20 minutes at Maltby Main to put them 2-0 up.

But Connor Cutts pulled one back before half-time, before Jamie Austin equalised on 62 minutes, meaning both sides had to settle for a point.

Silsden have hit the buffers somewhat after a good start, and they dropped to 11th after a 2-0 home defeat to title chasers Garforth Town.

It was a double sucker punch for the Cobbydalers, with Garforth's goals coming after 87 and 90 minutes, courtesy of Daniel Coupland and Helmo Mendes da Cruz Silva respectively.

In the NWCFL First Division North, Campion and Ilkley Town shared the spoils after a thrilling 3-3 draw.

Daniel Keane opened the scoring for the Red and Blacks, but Kevin Gonzalez Mele quickly equalised for Town.

Luke Rhodes put Campion ahead once more, but that too was soon cancelled out, this time by Aaron Davis.

Leon Hurles-Brook's penalty on the hour mark gave the Bradford side the lead for the third time, but Ilkley were not done, and grabbed a late point courtesy of Gonzalez Mele's second.
