Happy Harpars top table

Horncastle based AFC Harpars proved they’ve got ‘six appeal’ as they swept to the top of Division Three in the Sills and Betteridge Sunday League.

Harpars hammered rivals Heighington 6-3 at Horncastle Playing Fields to step up their promotion challenge.

Heighington will definitely be glad to see the back of Harpars who won an earlier league meeting this season 8-0.

Harpars now have 21 points - the same as FVA Jerusalem Reserves - but top the table on goal difference.

Previous leaders Trent Valley have 19 points from seven games and it should be a thrilling battle for the title in the second half of the campaign.

Harpars will be looking to tighten their grip on top spot when they visit Crows Athletic next Sunday.
