Barr Hill Vets went top of BSF Over 35s Division One following their 5-3 home win over Manor Vets, but have played a game more than Irlam Steel whose game was postponed. Massey and Mears each scored twice and Naylor once for the victory while Dion Goodridge and Darren Chester hit the net for Manor.

A Smith hat-trick, two apiece by Bailey and Houghton and one each from Weall and Macnamara gave Salford Victoria nine at home to North Walkden who scored three.

Old Boltonians kept up the pressure on Division Two leaders Turton Vets with a 3-2 away win at Bolton Lads and Girls Club with two goals from Neil Seddon and one by Paul Berry, but Neil Davies and Veejy Mistry scored to keep BLGC in the game. Old Bolts are three points adrift of Turton, but have two games in hand, however, Turton kept their position with a 5-2 win at Hindley Town for whom Lee McVey and Stu Gaskell scored. Stuart Williams and Andrew Clarke Scored two and David Simkins one for Turton.

Division Three leaders Home Guard Failsworth retained their position, but dropped points in a 3-3 draw at Horwich St Mary’s Victoria. Steve MacDonald scored two and Mike Coburn one for Horwich, but a Rob Black double and a Paul Lennon strike avoided defeat.

Dobbies B are just a point behind the leaders with two games in hand and dramatically improved their goal difference as they thrashed Ainsworth A 13-1. A Jones goal for Ainsworth was little consolation because Michael Longdale hit six for Dobbies with Dave Cosgrove, Lee Whalley and Andrew Benjamin scoring two each and Carl Swiift adding one.

Although Deans Youth and Ladies are still without a point in Division Four after four games, they came close on Sunday at fellow strugglers P.F.Bury who earned their first points of the season with a satisfying 2-1 home win. Paul Worsley and Martin Kojder scored for PF Bury and Daz Schofield for Deans.

Radcliffe Old Boys B beat Heaton Casuals 3-2 to join them at the top of Division Four with two games in hand. Nathan Comley scored a brace and Mark Owen the other to give Radcliffe victory while Tony McCormick and Alan Westhead kept Heaton Casuals in the game.

Bury Seniors are still looking for their first point after losing at Atherton Town. Neil Butcher scored for the visitors, but Martin Jordan, Pete Carson and Scott Mulcrowe gave Atherton a 3-1 victory.
