Perfection is not enough for Salts to be West Riding County Amateur League Premier Division leaders
After only two weeks of West Riding County Amateur League fixtures, only Salts in the Premier Division have made the perfect start, with three victories from three games.
After victories at Steeton and Tyersal - two of the sides who finished in the top four last season - Salts visited Lepton Highlanders and, with goals from, Andy Howland, Kyle Berry, Sam Waterhouse and Joe Pleasance - ran out easy 4-2 victors.
However, Ovenden West Riding and Huddersfield YMCA, who have played an additional game to Salts, stay in the top two places.
Ovenden, with goals from Jordan Coduri, Mat Woodhouse and Steve Fullard, beat Kirkburton 3-1, while a Kevin Megson own goal gave Kirkburton a consolation.
Hudderfield YMCA, who were Division One champions last season, are the surprise team so far this campaign with three victories and a draw from their four games, their latest being win a 3-0 success at Storthes Hall thanks to strikes from Luke Webb, Tebo M’Pala and Darragh Sheeny.
Tyersal hosted last season's champions Bay Athletic, and were hit for three quick goals from Nathan James, two just before half-time and the third within minutes of the start of the second half. Glynne Beale and Luke Hunter scored for Tyersal, but too late to prevent Bay winning 3-2.
Steeton had Lee Reilly (3) and Adam Spencer on target as they beat Hall Green United 4-1, with Lewis Richardson getting a late consolation for the visitors.
Ventus Yeadon Celtic lead the way in Division One after beating visitors Wakefield City 3-1, with Sean Jack, Curtis Braybrook, and Kyle Shah scoring for Celtic, while Ben Fisher replied.
Hunsworth made it two wins from two games with a 6-2 home success over pointless Storthes Hall, Joel Farrar and Luke Barker both scoring twice to add to efforts by Lee Brook and Alex McMahon.
West Horton travelled to Overthorpe but, after leading 1-0 at half-time via a Lee Smith goal, they had to settle for a point when Michael Haley scored for Overthorpe.
Newcomers Dram Community lead the way in Division Two after beating local Huddersfield rivals Golcar United Reserves 6-2.
Dudley Hill Rangers are in second place on goal difference after winning 4-3 at Lower Hopton Reserves, Daniel Softley (2), Roman Zuric and Joe Broadhead scoring Rangers' goals after they were 1-0 down at the interval.
Bradford recovered from their 6-1 drubbing on the opening Saturday to gain a point at Littletown Reserves, Ben Neale scoring for Bradford after Jermaine Davis had netted for the hosts.
