DEARNE Valley Bulldogs kept up their unbeaten start to the campaign with a 36-12 win on the road.

The Bolton-upon-Dearne outfit had too much for Batley to stay top of Division Five.

The tries came from Owen Clarke and Sam Holt, who both got a brace, Ben Hartley and Jack Duggan. Clarke added five goals and Jack Hutton one.

The under 18s were also victorious as they beat Methley Warriors 26-6.

The club continues to enjoy success in terms of their youth development with Andrew Gill scoring for the Huddersfield Giants’ academy in a match against Leeds Rhinos at Headingley.

Fellow former Bulldog Jack Easton turned out for Wakefield Trinity’s academy whilst Conlan Mawson is in the youth set-up at Bradford Bulls.

Dodworth Miners won 54-10 at York Acorn in Division Three.

The result dispelled any thoughts that the team might be rusty after going three weeks without a game.
