A WELCOME first win of the season was celebrated at Grange Moor.
And the Works League Division II side were full value for their 5-1 triumph over a strong Uppermill Reserves.
Moor swept into a 4-0 lead before half-time playing some scintillating attacking football.
And the win moved them off the bottom of the table, where they had languished with just one point from their first four games.
“Now we have the chance to build on something,” said club spokesman James Keen.
“Hopefully we can now look to pick up more points.
“We usually start off very slowly but pick up later in the season. I hope now we can start our recovery much earlier.
“The problem in the past has been that the team loses players to the first team; this season we hope the movement between the two squads will be on merit and that should enable both teams to encourage better performances from the players.
“We signed a handful of new players during the course of last season and they have stayed with us and are developing further.
On Saturday most of the players shone, rather than just a handful, and it showed in the performance.
Paul Martin, who is running the team, summed it up.
He said: “It was a blur of attacking football.”
Moor’s scorers on the day were Halstead (2), McGuire, Jessop and Waldron.
Newcomers Moldgreen head the Division II table and they picked up three more points in their derby game at Stag.
It was Moldgreen’s fourth win out of six games and came courtesy of goals from Stead (2) and Scarfe.
The Stag scorer was Boothroyd.
Bay Athletic moved into third place thanks to a fine 4-0 home win over Upperthong.
All four goals came from Alexander.
In Division I, champions Syngenta Sports moved within three points of unbeaten leaders Moldgreen Con.
Syngenta entertained Heywood Sports but were forced to work hard for their 3-2 victory.
McLean, Bradshaw and Simpson scored for the home side, with Turner and Walker leading the Heywoods reply.
Hepworth United had to work hard for their 2-0 win at Berry Brow.
Both sides cancelled each other out in the first half but two strikes by Harry Laybourn in the second period settled the match in favour of the visitors.
