Sutton Res 6

Sutton double their win tally for the season in style with six of the best at fellow Craven League Division Four strugglers Barons.
Isfaq Hussain grabbed a hat-trick with Lee Rooke netting a brace and Chris Vollentine completing the half-dozen.
The win ends a run of seven defeats and, although Sutton remain at the foot of the table, they are now only one point behind the Barnoldswick side and Ingrow & Worth Valley Reserves.
All three teams have at least three games in hand on the teams immediately above them in the table.

Cononley knocked off pole position

Trawden Celtic 1 Cononley Sports 1
A goal from Mark Bradley was not enough to stop Cononley being knocked off the top of the Craven League Premier Division table.
It was the sixth tight game in a row for the visitors, who have drawn two of them, won three by a single goal and lost one by the odd goal in three.
Reigning champions Skipton LMS took advantage of the slip to move a point clear with two games in hand.

Just like that for super Cooper

Oxenhope III 3 Cowling Reserves 1
Oxenhope booked their place in the semi-final of the Craven League Divison Three Cup with a fine victory over Cowling.
Veteran striker Tony Cooper opened the scoring in the second minute, drilling a low powerful strike into the bottom corner from outside the area.
The home side were well on top but just before the break Cowling equalised through Ben Allwood.
Oxenhope continued to press in the second half and on the hour their efforts were rewarded when Cooper scored his second with a bullet header at the back post.
The Worth Valley side sealed the tie 10 minutes before the end with a neat finish from Danny Smith.

Wheater hits four but still on losing side

Four goals: Chris Wheater

Chris Wheater

Ingrow & Worth Valley Reserves 5
Bradley Reserves 6

An 11-goal thriller at the Pig-pen in wet and windy conditions saw Bradley take all the Craven League Division Four points.
There wasn’t much football played but Ingrow found themselves 3-1 up with two from man of the match Chris Wheater and one from young Brad Smith.
But in the second half it was as if Ingrow didn’t turn up, and Bradley got themselves back into the game after a couple of mistakes and the Steampigs found themselves chasing goals.
Wheater grabbed himself another two, but it was just too late, although the hosts nearly grabbed an equaliser in the last minute, the Bradley keeper made a good save.

Broomhill brushed aside for first defeat

Broomhill logoGargrave 8 Broomhill 0
Broomhill suffered their first competitive defeat in a humbling, lacklustre performance against a much better Gargrave side – losing a devastatingly humiliating 8-0 in the Northern Plant Hire Trophy.
The Badgers didn’t recreate their league form and were a completely different outfit to the one who are currently top of their league.
Much improvement is to be made and the management team of Stewart Kinnear and Mick Vickers have made this perfectly clear to the players.
