Their win came courtesy of hat-tricks for Lewis Linacre, Paul Wendon and Adam Pinches as they take an early lead in this division.

The Player Of The Match award went the way of Wendon for his display in the victory.

The Pigeons’ trio of Zak Berridge, Harry Stott and Sam Liversidge battled hard but were unable to trouble the Hawks team.

Wendon and Pinches took the doubles against Berridge and Liversidge to complete the impressive victory for the Hawks.

Sparken Hill Blue Jays kept up the pressure on the Hawks.

They moved up into joint second place with a 7-3 win over opponents Worksop Welfare Real Deal.

A Kathy McIntyre hat-trick paved the way for the Blue Jays’ victory.

She was well supported by Dave Lee, who enjoyed wins over both Tom Ogley and Jerry Collins.

However, he lost out to Glenn Gillgrass, the Real Deal also claiming a second good win at the expense of John McIntyre.

Tom Ogley also beat McIntyre to make up the three singles wins for Real Deal.

But he couldn’t add to their score when he joined up with Gillgrass in the doubles, the pair losing out to the McIntyres, who concluded the Blue Jays’ victory.
