An 11-goal tournament haul from Graham Holmes was not enough to earn his Keighley Juniors Veterans team victory in the Tom Storton Memorial Trophy.
Vets were beaten 2-1 in the final by an All Stars team made up of the area’s top youth talent, including Ben Lamb, James Sutcliffe, Joe Mitchell, Matty Moore, Danny Riley, James Francis, Josh Kaine and Ricky Linden.
Neil Grayston put Vets ahead but Sutcliffe levelled and Francis fired in the winner.
The Vets team included Martin and Matthew Bland, Neil Grayston, Graham Holmes, John Spurr, Anthony Cope, John Spurr and Rocky Shutt.
The tournament, held in memory of Paul ‘Tom’ Storton raised about £1,500 for charity.
Unfortunately, two players suffered broken legs during the tournament; Silsden’s Danny Finn and Dan McInnes, of The Three Horses.
A fundraising event is being held for Finn with an afternoon of comedy at the Gas Club on Sunday, July 10, 3.30pm, including an auction and raffle. More info – here.
