The Heavy Woollen Sunday League sprung back into action after the enforced winter break with Mirfield Town moving third in the Premier Division after a 4-2 win at bottom side AFC Chickenley.

Many teams had not played in over a month but Mirfield returned to action in style and moved to within three points of leaders Navigation, who did not have a game.

Chickenley replied through a Shaun McDaid double but they remain bottom of the table, all be it with three games in hand on Birstall CC.

FC Walkers Hounds are a point behind Mirfield in fourth place after a 2-0 win at Roberttown Rovers.

Mount Pleasant are the new leaders of the Championship but were given a huge scare by bottom side Overthorpe Sports Club, who led 4-1 at half-time through doubles from Mark Wigley and Steve Hadden.

Mount staged a fightback in the second half and eventually won 6-4 thanks to braces from Abdullah Mayet and Ismail Loonat, plus strikes from Muhammad Omar and Adam Rawat.

With the second and third placed teams, Deighton WMC and Old Bank WMC, in cup action Clifton Rangers closed the gap on the leading pack with a 2-1 win at Wire Works, who replied through Jordan McCafferty-Smith.

Joe Jagger hit five goals as Hanging Heaton Cricket Club thrashed Scholes Athletic 9-2.

Adam Jordan (two), Rob Mallender and Tom Wigglesworth hit the others as Hanging Heaton climbed to fifth place.

Duane Fascione hit a double for Ravenswharfe but they lost 4-2 at Wellington Westgate.

Only one game was played in Division One and it saw Snowdon climb above Battyeford to the top of the table on goal difference after a 6-1 win over St Ignatius.

Irfan Ali led the way with a hat-trick for Snowdon, who had James Heeley, Jamil Sair and Lee Lucas also on target.

Bunn Darboe netted St Ignatius’ consolation.
