Runcorn Linnets 1 Silsden 0
A 51st-minute header from Matty Atherton condemned Silsden to defeat in the Premier Division of the North West Counties League as they failed to score for a third consecutive match.
The hosts were reduced to 10 men in the last minute when Michael Simpson was dismissed after picking up a second booking, for taking a throw-in too slowly.

Bingley FC Young Boys 2
Keighley Athletic 3
The old boys of Keighley again came out on top against the young boys of Bingley in a tight derby.
Athletic were dominant throughout the first half and should have put the game beyond Bingley but a combination of poor finishing and excellent goalkeeping kept the visitors at bay before Joe Brady stroked home the opener.
Athletic were hampered when both Chris Smith and talisman James Gill left the field injured but doubled their lead when Mark Hird finished smartly.
Bingley pulled one back but Dan Otterburn swiftly responded before a rare goalkeeping error from Heath Maddocks set up an exciting finish.
Bingley persevered, but the Athletes held firm to record their third consecutive victory
Crossflats Village 3 Otley Tavern 2
Crossflatts Village’s title charge remained on course this morning thanks to a hard-fought 3-2 home win over bottom club Otley Tavern at the Crossflatts Recreation Ground, but the title challengers owe a lot of gratitude to their winger Sam Waterhouse, who was the difference between the two sides.

Following a week of mixed fortunes the Cobbydalers were hoping to treat their fans to another three points, at the Angel Telecom Stadium, but in the end they had to settle for a point.
With Wademan departed and McGowan suspended Andy Geary bought in Will Storrie to lead the attack and Anthony Lynch to play on the left with Josh McNulty given a roaming role in midfield.
The games between the Bears and the Cobbydalers are normally quite tight affairs and this was no exception. Both sides had periods of domination but neither could convert any of their chances.
Oxenhope Rec 0
Following two recent defeats Oxenhope produced a much improved level of performance.
The hosts showed their true character and resilience, which was needed against the reigning West Yorkshire League champions, who are again this season’s front runners.
The visitors also sought revenge for their only defeat earlier on in the campaign when Oxenhope beat them 3-2 on their own patch.
Bardsey had the best of the early exchanges but gradually Oxenhope started to get a foothold.
Consolation: Andy King hit Steeton’s goal
Bay Athletic 4
Steeton got back to West Riding County Amateur League action after a 10-week break but slumped to only their second home defeat of the season.
After only playing two cup ties since their last Premier Division outing, way back on December 28, the Chevrons ran out of steam after holding Bay to 0-0 at half-time.
Andy King netted the home consolation.
Robin Hood Athletic 1
Oxenhope Rec Reserves 1
Oxenhope ground out a point at Robin Hood in a dour West Yorkshire League Alliance One encounter.
The first half had few highlights as the hosts’ physical and organised approach unsettled Oxenhope, forcing them to stutter through without getting going.
The best chances fell to Robin Hood who forced Sam Lee to make one excellent save down to his right and Mackenzie Dawson to swoop and head another goalbound effort clear.
Adam Gill (10) tries his luck for Denholme at Spring Hall Celtic.

More action from Denholme at Spring Hall Celtic.
Denholme United Reserves 2
The misery continued for Denholme’s second string as they stretched their winless run to five games.
They have won only once all season, against Sowerby United Reserves in October, but did manage to score twice at title-chasing Spring Hall
Guy Flanagan and Lea Kelly were the marksmen for United, who are second bottom in the Halifax League Division Two table, eight points adrift of third bottom Midgley but with three games in hand.
Two of the next three games are against teams in the bottom four as United look to avoid a swift return to Division Three after their promotion joy last season.

Denholme United 5
Sowerby Bridge Reserves 2
Michael Midgley grabbed four goals as Denholme stayed on course for a top-three finish in Division One of the Halifax League.
Jamie Walshe completed the tally.
Crosshills took full advantage of a switch to a neutral venue to earn a trip to Rolls in the quarter-final of the Craven League Premier Division Cup.
With Sawley Road unavailable, the tie was moved to Sough Park in Colne and Crosshills cashed in with Ben Dewhirst, Robert Matthews and Stuart Parkin hitting the goals.
Cononley Sports 4 Wilsden Athletic 2
A rapid hat-trick from Craig Gregory wrapped up victory for Cononley in the Premier Division of the Craven League.
Wilsden took an early lead through a tremendous long-range strike, which flew into top corner.
Cononley began to start passing the ball well and created a couple of chances. This paid off when man of match Craig Gregory rattled in a hat-trick in five first-half minutes.
Cowling 0 Skipton LMS 5
Cowling were unable to take advantage of any LMS frustration in the Premier Division of the Craven League.
Ian Craven struck four times for the visitors as they regained top spot after losing six points and 28-0 aggregate last week following the withdrawal of Carleton.
Cowling remain close to the foot of the tab but, with only one team expected to be relegated and Embsay seven points adrift with only five matches to play, they should be safe.
Ryan Buckley was the home man of the match.
FC Sporting Keighley 4
Broomhill slipped up yet again in their bid for promotion as automatic hopefuls FC Sporting Keighley took all three points in a thrilling contest.
Goals from striker Andrew Tanner and new recruit Patrick King weren’t enough for the Badgers as they drop down to fourth in the table.
Broomhill boss Stewart Kinnear had to re-jig his starting line-up after injuries to Ben Manning and Connor Flaherty. Jamie Greenwood slotted into full-back and Joe Park played alongside King in the middle.
The two sides had only met in the League Cup this season and the Badgers came out on top in that fixture – and it looked like it was going to be the same story in the opening five minutes.
Tom Hill was at the receiving end of a clumsy tackle in the area and a penalty was awarded. Tanner comfortably converted to make it 1-0.
Sporting didn’t let the goal make their heads drop and came close to equalising. Their stand-out player this year, Aaron Abbas, tested Jake Yaxley with a half volley – but a fine save from the stopper kept Broomhill ahead.
Silsden White Star 2
Settle United 2
A point was enough to move the Whitestars out of the bottom two of the Craven League Division Two.
Sam Stansfield and substitute Jack Kendal grabbed the hosts’ goals to push them three points ahead of bottom club Pendle who they play a week on Saturday.
