Adel ascended on the rolling valley of Halifax, West Yorkshire (where everybody seems to know everybody) for a crucial away fixture with one of the league’s best. Big Ben’s men knew that the talented and tough playing style of the boiz from the valley had to be taken seriously, especially dropping down from the league above.

Adel broke the deadlock with a Will Purdy short corner, two more goals from Purdy, one each from Rory Jackson, Jonny S Sykes and Paul Watkins saw Adel take all 3 points winning 6-2.

Strong start to the new season see Adel unbeaten in 2nd place but with the ‘big game players’ availability looking horrific in the past, coming and future weeks, Adel will have to work very hard to stay there.

MOM – Will Purdy
