Shammies started well as Jack Hanson brilliantly brought the ball down and hooked it back to Harry Farnell, who sidestepped a lunging defender and hammered in to make it 1-0.

Keighley were caught napping when they allowed a long clearance from the keeper to find the centre forward, who powered home.

Farnell regained the initiative with a free-kick from the halfway line that caught the wind and sailed straight into the net.

The excitement continued when Bingley scored their own top-quality free-kick seconds later.

Man of the match Tom Broadbent got on the end of a brilliant cross from Hanson to tap in from short range but, on the stroke of half-time, Bingley equalised again after another defensive error.

In the second half Bingley took the lead with another brilliant set-piece but Shammies responded with excellent goals from Farnell and Dylan Ward.

Ward linked up well with Kais Ali to score a superb thunderbolt goal not long after and Ward completed his hat-trick near the end with a calm penalty kick.
