Bardsey are on the trail of the West Yorkshire League points record, after edging closer to their fourth championship in five years on Saturday.

Rob Dickinson’s double ensured the Red and Blacks eased past mid-table Brighouse Old Boys 3-0 at home, Stu Berry also scoring.

The Keswick Laners could wrap up the Premier title with a win over Beeston St Anthony’s this Saturday, should chasers Field fail to beat Boroughbridge.

Field still have ten league matches to play, but are the only team that mathematically stop the title returning to Bardsey’s trophy cabinet.

Beeston ended Leeds City’s title challenge with a 2-1 win on Saturday, and Barraclough admitted there would be no better place to secure the crown than at their old rivals.

He said: “It’s all near enough wrapped up. There’s no pressure on us now, all the pressure is on Field to win their ten games.

“We have played without pressure all season, and we have been better for it. With just three games to go, we will go to enjoy it.”

Saturday’s victory was Bardsey’s 21st of the season, and with three games to go they lie on 68 points.

“If we get to 77 points we would break the league record having only 13 points,” Barraclough added. “That’s definitely something to be proud of,”
