Two goals by Kyle Sambrook were not enough to prevent Featherstone Colliery slipping to a 4-3 home defeat against Aberford Albion in West Yorkshire Division One.

Thomas Field was also on target for Featherstone who are fourth bottom in the table but have games in hand on all their fellow strugglers.

On Saturday, Colliery host second bottom Whitkirk Wanderers who lost 4-3 at Kippax last weekend.

In Division Two, Kellingley Welfare stretched their unbeaten run to six games with a convincing 6-1 win over Middleton Park after beating them 4-1 two weeks earlier.

Kells dominated the first 20 minutes but failed to put away their chances.

They eventually went ahead in the 30th minute when Rob Anderson netted the first of his hat-trick with a neat header.

With Nathan Hutchinson, Jordan Hutchinson, Andy Gibbons and Luke Bain controlling the midfield, Kellingley played flowing football which should have led to more goals.

They finally found their shooting boots in the second-half with two goals in the first five minutes from Dale Morton and Jordan Hutchinson.

Welfare eased off and were caught out when Park pulled a goal back.

Kells responded when Anderson bagged his second.

Park had another chance but a spot kick came crashing back off the crossbar.

Kells upped the tempo again and after another good passage of play Jordan Hutchinson supplied the finish.

Middleton’s strikers posed little threat to Kellingley’s backline of Billcliffe, Clough, Greenwood and Sleight.

Anderson completed his hat trick with 10 minutes left with a superb strike from 25 yards out which flew inside the upright.

It was another good performance from Welfare who could easily have hit double figures with steadier finishing.

Their next game sees them travel to Bradford to take on Thornton United in the third round of the County Trophy.

In Alliance Division Two, Kippax Reserves lost 5-2 at leaders Shelley Reserves.
