Cooper sends Athletic barrelling up table

Salts Reserves 0 Keighley Athletic 1
Tony Cooper netted the only goal of the game to push Keighley Athletic away from the lower reaches of Division One of the Wharfedale Triangle Sunday League.
Athletic produced arguably their best performance of the season.
The Athletes were solid from the off with Tom Whitwham, Adam Burns and new signing Ricky Smith visibly strengthening the backbone of the team.
The young Salts outfit pressed and utilised the large pitch but had to settle for long-range efforts, while the visitors spurned the better chances.
A tight game was settled midway through the second half when the ever-dangerous Cooper put the visitors in front with a smart finish after a goalkeeping error.
Salts stirred in response but the Athletic veterans used their experience to run down the clock, securing a deserved win and a hugely satisfying clean sheet.
