Waiters Arms continue to head the pack in the Ziggys Metro Cars Halifax Sunday League after a comprehensive 4-0 victory over a youthful Ryburn United side.

Waiters didn’t have it all their own way in the early exchanges but got the breakthrough from a set-piece when Gordon Brierley rose highest to nod home a David Chappell corner.

It was soon 2-0 when Adam Helliwell slipped in top scorer Lee Wood who rounded Lewis Scott to slot home.

Ryburn kept plugging away but came a cropper early in the second half when Wood completed his brace smashing home from a Danny Cook delivery and it was 4-0 when substitiute Kev Talbot played in the impressive Adam Helliwell to complete the scoring.

Waiters boss Adam Fenton said: “They are a very useful side Ryburn who if they stick together will challenge in the next few years they just maybe lack a bit of experience through the middle, we look forward to our cup game with them at their place this Sunday.”
