SAVILLE Arms moved up to third place in the Heavy Woollen Sunday League Premier Division after they earned a 6-3 victory over Roberttown Rovers last week.

Adam Hill fired a hat-trick, Saul Lee struck a brace with Daniel Stuart completing Saville’s tally as they earned a second win from three league outings.

Roberttown replied through a Reiss Brook double plus one from Austin Broadbent but it wasn’t enough to prevent a second defeat from three matches.

With leaders Linthwaite not in action, Navigation climbed to second place with a 5-1 win over St John Fisher.
