There were doubles for both Ryan Mclees and Ash Macdonald as Bury Bowl won a seven-goal thriller against Cock Inn in the Plastic Trade Frames Bury Sunday League, writes Ian Friend.

In Division Two, Ixworth hosted CFC Bury with the hosts winning the match by the odd goal in five.

Scorers for CFC were Aaron Marsden and Danny Portway.

Black Boy and Coldham Hall shared the points and eight goals.

Two of the four matches fell victim to the weather in Division Three.

Brandon were entertained by Cheveley who went on to win 10-1 with Shaun Avis notching a double hat-trick, with James Lane (2), Tom Attwood and Warren Reddick also scoring.

Saturday’s match-of-the-day was at Gainsborough Road where Matt Creaton’s second-placed Home Guard 2014 outfit were playing Dave Dobbyn’s Division One leaders St Edmunds 1965 FC.

The Saints moved three points clear at the top with a 2-0 away win. On target for St Edmunds were Tommy Orr and an own goal by St Edmunds old boy Liam Hume.

The other match to beat the weather was at Hepworth where basement side Wortham FC played second-bottom outfit Bury Town Rams AFC.

Wortham leapfrogged the A team with a 4-3 home win.

Hitting the net for Wortham were Tom Mayhew, Matt Garrod, Liam Osbourne and Ricky Cobb.

All Division Two and Three games were postponed.
