Tuesday Night Review

By Simon Harrison

We take a look at the results from tonight's games across the Manchester Football League.

Premier Division
Hindsford continue their perfect start to the season and maintain top spot with another emphatic victory. They put bottom side AFC Monton to the sword as they secured a 10-0 win at New Alder Park with Alex Honeyball scoring four, Matt Babilinski scoring a hat-trick, Ryan Briody notching a brace and Chris Hopwood getting the other in another statement of intent for The Tonics.

Sitting in second place are Royton Town who also boast a 100% start following their narrow 3-2 win at Rochdale Sacred Heart.

Third-placed Heyside dropped their first points of the season as they lost out to Springhead in a local derby at Crompton House. Adam Dale scored their consolation while Matthew Barlow, Kion Pryce and Leighton Stephenson were all on target, clinching the three points for the visitors.

Bolton County picked up their first win of the season with a very good 4-2 victory at a previously unbeaten Walshaw Sports, moving them up to ninth.

East Manchester also clinched their first victory of the season but left it late in a nine-goal thriller at Wright Robinson. An injury time Danny Williams strike earned the hosts the bragging points in their 5-4 win.

Division One
Heywood St James maintained their great start thanks to a narrow 2-1 victory over Altrincham Hale. Chris Taylor and Jack Martin got the goals for Jimmies, coming back from a goal down to keep their 100% record intact.

Elton Vale bounced back from their defeat at the weekend with a fine 4-1 win at home to Bolton Lads & Girls Club. Mark Severs’ double was added to by Jack Lawder and Liam Mulhall to put Vale in second place.

Atherton Town failed to follow suit as they came back from 2-0 down to get a point at Leigh Athletic. Ben Rodgers and Gareth Shaw got Town’s goals in the local derby at Butler Park.

Boothstown registered a superb 4-1 win at home to Wilmslow Albion which moves them up to fourth place and Radcliffe Juniors move into fifth, going above Pennington after their narrow 3-2 win over them at Cams Lane.

Division Two
It was a stalemate at the Recreation Ground as the top two sides went head to head. Irlam Steel and Moorside Rangers played out a 2-2 draw as both teams lose their 100% start but boast an unbeaten start to their campaigns.
