LINDLEY SWIFTS have been one of the early success stories in the Pennine League.
Unbeaten in their opening four games of the season, the Swifts sit proudly at the top of the Third Division table on points difference from West Leeds.
And that difference should be increased tomorrow when the leaders travel to bottom club Ovenden A, who have lost their opening four fixtures.
Another Huddersfield side who will be keen to strengthen their strong League position are First Division Slaithwaite Saracens – but they know that won’t be easy.
They are second behind Clayton in the table, and will need to be at their very best to maintain the pressure on the leaders when they travel to third-placed Ackworth Jaguars, who only trail the Saracens on points difference.
Also in Division I action are Emley Moor, who should chalk up a fourth win from six starts at home to Birkenshaw.
Premier Division St Joseph’s will be hoping to make it a second success from four top-flight starts this weekend when they entertain Halifax Irish.
And after opening their account on their last League outing three weeks ago, coach Keith Senior’s side will be confident of getting the job done.
Underbank Rangers have had a mixed start in Division IV, with two wins from five starts, but that should be three from six when they host bottom club Hollinwood.
Meltham All Blacks are solidly placed in Division V, and a trip to struggling Halifax Irish A should enhance their current standing.
Newsome Panthers A are leading the way in Division VI and win No4 should come at home to Brighouse.
At the same time, Slaithwaite A should have relatively little problem overcoming bottom club Cowling Harlequins, while St Joseph’s A face a tough test at second-placed Illingworth.
And in Division VII, Underbank A will be hopeful of securing a fourth win of the season at Sheffield Forgers.
