Four goals: Chris Wheater

Four goals:
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.

Bingley Town share the spoils in high scoring draw.

Earby Town Reserves 4 Bingley Town 4
Bingley dominated for the first half hour but it was Earby who took lead on a break away. Bingley pushed for a equaliser but finished the first half 1-0 down. Second half Bingley were quick out of blocks and Chris Arnold equalised after a scramble but it was Earby who capitalised on a crazy 15 minutes to race away to a 4-1 lead and looked strong. However Sean Devlin then responded when he went through and hit his shot in the bottom right corner, then Michael Judson scored a tap in soon after. Bingley pushed for an equaliser for the next 15 minutes and Michael Judson poked in a cross to make it 4-4 with 2 minutes left.

Under strength White Star earn draw against unbeaten Grassington

Silsden White Star 1 Grassington United 1
Silsden White Star had a depleted team after their fantastic County Cup Win last week. They entertained Grassington who hadn’t dropped a point so far this season, from the start they weren’t expecting anything from the game, but they dominated the match and missing handfuls of chances, Tony Pleasant put White Star 1 nil up at half time. Grassington responded when they got a header from there only real chance. Man or the Match James Whitehead was immense at the back for, and in the end it was surprisingly 2 points dropped for Gary Lund’s team. Making his debut for White Star was 16 year old Josh Jordan who did well in Midfield.

Rogers in fine form to keep Manningham at bay.

Ingrow & Worth Valley Reserves 1 Manningham All Stars 1
Ingrow are back to the “Pig Pen” (Oakbank School) this season, and faced Manningham, who beat them the previous week.
Manningham arrived topping the Craven League Division Four table, this spurred Ingrow on to put in a fine performance, dominating the game and should have come away with all three points.
With a few old faces coming back, it was Chris Wheater who gave the Steampigs the lead.
Man of the match Lee Rogers pulled off a string of fine saves in the last ten minutes to prevent the equaliser, but in the dying minutes of the game, they did equalise, the celebrations showing how much it meant to them and how hard fought the game had been.
