Hollins Holme maintained their two point lead at the top of the Ziggys Metro Cars Halifax Sunday League courtesy of a 3-1 home success over Feathers FC.

Holme went 1-0 up after 20 minutes when a Rob Day flick on found James Chadwick, who tapped in at the back post.

The second goal arrived on the half hour. Seventeen year old Jamie Gwilliam picked up a stray ball and from 30 yards out fired a screamer into the top corner.

Hollins had most of the first half play but were thwarted on numerous occasions by the Feathers ‘keeper.

It took until the hour mark for Hollins to stretch their lead through Chadwick’s second. Picking up a through ball from Andrew Butterworth, Chadwick fired in from a tight angle.

Feathers bagged themselves a consolation with 15 minutes remaining after some out of character sloppy defending from Hollins.

Royd Club came from a goal down to inflict a 4-1 defeat on Triangle in Division One.

The home side were well-organised but did not possess a standout player.

Royd, on the other hand, settled early and posed a threat.

It was against the run of play when triangle took the lead but Royd were back on terms ahead of the break through John Moynes’ 25 yard effort.

Boss Dave Taylor then produced a second half masterstroke when he pushed Sam Taylor up front with John Gibson and the pair saw their side to victory.

Gibson made it 2-1 before Taylor, who had earlier commanded the midfield, added his name to the score sheet.

It was left to Gibson to wrap things up and lift Royd Club into third place.

Royd Club are without a game this weekend while Hollins Holme travel to Elland Cricket Club to play Elland Sports.
