Savile United picked up their first win of the season in the Spen Valley Premier Division as they overcame Atheltico 5-2 last Saturday.

Victory was enough to lift United off the foot of the table, above Girlington on goal difference, after a brace apiece from Rehan Sultan and Faisal Adam, plus a goal from Abdul Karim Mahmood, earned the three points.

Qendrim Emini and Brendan Dexter replied for Athletico, who slip to fourth place.

Savile Youth remain unbeaten with two wins and three draws from five matches, with their latest success seeing them defeat Girlington 5-3.

Mohammed Qasim (two) and Fraz Dar struck with Girlington’s consolation goals.

Palestino are the new Premier Division leaders after Jamie Chadwick (two), Mitch Bleau and Zain Mushtaq helped them defeat Dewsbury West Side 4-2.

It was West Side’s first defeat of the season and they are level on 10 points with Palestino but trail on goal difference and have played a game more than the new front runners.

George Healey extended their unbeaten run in Division One to five matches thanks to a 4-2 victory over Savile Town.

George are three points clear of second placed Marsh but have played a game more.

Reece Scholes led the way with a hat-trick for George, with Lee Sykes bagging the other goal, while Waqas Bashir and Zubair Hussain replied for Savile Town, who are second-bottom with one win from their opening four matches.

Marsh kept in touch with the leaders as they claimed a third win of the season, recording a 3-1 success away to Dewsbury West Side Reserves.

James Binns struck a brace and James Parkin also netted for Marsh, with West Side Reserves replying through Jabbar Farooq.

Howden Clough remain rooted to the foot of the table without a point.

They slipped to a fifth straight defeat, 5-1 at home to Inter Batley despite Gary Woods netting a consolation goal.

Awaab Ahmed and Muhammed Navzarka hit a brace apiece, with Ziyaad Rawat also on target for Inter,
