SALFORD Victoria Vets were the big movers in the BSF Over-35s' Football League Division One on Sunday after an 8-4 win against Queen Lizzy.

The game was the only one to survive the bad weather in the top flight and saw Vets jump from second bottom to third.

Lee Whitley scored a hat-trick and Gaz Cornock one for Queen Lizzy, but that proved to be no match for the rampant Salford team.

John Smith and Tony Weall scored two apiece for them, while Mark Bailey, Richard Jackson, Carl O’Malley and Alan Houghton weighed in with one each.

Salford Victoria Vets have played six matches, but are just one point ahead of Irlam Steel who have played only two.

The other game to be played in the league came in Division Two where Radcliffe Old Boys A maintained their perfect record when they visited Old Boltonians AFC and won by the odd goal in three.

Victory for Old Bolts would have put them top of the table, but Daz Buckley and Mark Hollins scored to give Radcliffe the points despite Lord netting for the home side.

With games in hand on the teams below them, Radcliffe Old Boys are in a strong position.


Division One: Salford Victoria Vets 8 Queen Lizzy 4.

Division Two: Old Boltonians AFC 1 Radcliffe Old Boys A 2.
