Bradford League Division Two is going to be tough to call this season as the lead is changing hands week by week.

Hermits B, Unity A, Highdale B and Hermits C are separated by just nine  points.

Highdale B have just played against two of their rivals and, after losing for the first time against Hermits C, they bounced back against leaders Unity A.

Mike Stead was missing from Unity's line-up, and Highdale cashed in with Phil Mann playing the lead role.

Highdale raced into a 6-1 lead, with Mann winning all of his three, but he was pushed all the way by Geoff Dunne and Neil Harris, with both matches going to 12-10 in the fifth.

James Foster won two and Mike Kosmowsky added a single as Highdale won 6-4 to move two points clear of Unity into second place, two points behind new leaders Hermits B.

In Division Three, Pudsey C gained their first victory of the season at the expense of Baildon B.

The first four sets were shared, with Jerry Harkawy winning two for Baildon, but from then on it was all Pudsey, for whom Sandra Rider won all three in straight games.

Lynne Thompson and Granville Thornton both won two each as Pudsey triumphed 8-2.

In Division One, Highdale A are in the unusual position of propping up the table after losing their first three matches.

However, they looked set for victory against Pudsey A when they led 5-3, thanks to a treble from Yonni Caspi and a brace from new signing Stephen Denny, but Pudsey hit back to share the points as Dan Musgrave won two, Zoe Cheeseman and Richard Abrahams one each, and Musgrave and Abrahams took the doubles.
