Luddenden Foot and Mytholmroyd keen to run thirds

Luddenden Foot have applied to enter a team in the Foster’s Halifax League’s Sunday Section in 2015.

It is a move which confirms the upturn in fortunes of the High Lee Green outfit, who picked up players when King Cross folded a few years ago but have also worked hard to develop their junior section.

Fellow Calder Valley clubs Mytholmroyd and Bridgeholme have also applied to join, along with Huddersfield League club Hall Bower.

The section has lost two teams this season, Triangle and Elland.

Of more immediate importance to Foot is the battle to safeguard middle-section status for the first team

Foot, who just grabbed the second promotion place in Division Two almost 12 months ago, currently have an eight-point cushion over second-from-bottom Clayton with Outlane already looking doomed.

Victory at Low Moor on Saturday would help their cause.

Mytholmroyd firsts’ title chance has gone in the Premier but their seconds could still win promotion behind runaway Division One champions Southowram.

Bridgeholme firsts have won Division Two but Old Town must apply for re-election. Town stalwart Neil Thwaites split the webbing on his right hand fielding for the seconds at Greetland last Saturday and has been wished a speedy recovery by the hosts.
