WITH only four league wins last season and just one so far this, Sporting Keighley haven't had a lot to smile about in the Skipton Body Repair Centre Craven League Premier Division recently.

However, maybe the West Riding County FA Trophy will provide them with some joy.

They beat visitors Leeds City Old Boys Thirds 4-1 to reach the third round, where they have another home tie against Shelf Juniors on Saturday, December 2.

Also through are Silsden Whitestar and Bingley Town, though neither of them had to kick a ball.

Whitestar, handed a home walkover by Mount, now visit Horbury Town Reserves, while Bingley, more unusually given free passage by a home side (Lower Hopton Reserves), are at Sowerby Bridge.

Unfortunately, there were also casualties, with Cowling going down 3-0 at Overthorpe Sports Club, and Bradley losing 5-1 at home to Halifax side Ivy House, including one goal that was a 50-yard clearance.

The home side played up the slope first and were 4-0 behind at half-time, despite creating some half-chances.

Bradley were better in the second half, Lee Brittain's close-range header proving a mere consolation, although they should have scored more than one.

There were also a few league matches played, and Silsden Whitestar Reserves won 3-2 at Grassington United Reserves in Division Two to stay third.

Zac Conway, man of the match James Hitch and Sam Stanfield were on target for the visitors, while if it was thrills you were after then look no further than Cross Hills Reserves, who drew 6-6 at home to Settle United Thirds in Division Three.

Luke Newton (3), Jordan Hough and Tom Snowden were among the scorers for the south Craveners, who climbed one spot to fourth.

Cowling Reserves, meanwhile, are second on goal difference behind Burnley Belvedere after defeating visitors Bingley Town Reserves 1-0.

Man of the match Jimmy Anson got the goal, but the Lancastrians do have a game in hand.
