CULLINGWORTH Youth only had 11 players for their first-round Keighley & District FA Sunday Cup tie at unbeaten Myrtle Park, and had to play for 120 minutes.

Youth also missed a penalty in the second half but, despite the marathon tie ending at 1-1 after 90 minutes and extra-time, they then won the shoot-out to book a home tie against fellow Premier Division side Crossflatts Village.

Myrtle Park, who have won all five of their matches so far in the Championship Division, went ahead in the tenth minute via Aron Garbutt, but ten minutes later the visitors were level, with Andy Waper's long throw being despatched by Ben Crispin.

The amazing thing was that there were no more goals, with Youth's 55th-minute penalty miss being the best of a crop of chances that fell to either side.

Youth, whose best player was Ian Gardner, are looking to add a couple of players to their squad, and anyone interested should text secretary-manager Allan Feather on 07378-654952.

On Sunday it is back to Wharfedale Triangle League action, and fifth-placed Cullingworth are at home to fourth-placed Hampsthwaite United, who are only above them on goal difference, having played a game less.

Unbeaten leaders Keighley Town, who had a bye in the district cup, are at Keighley Athletic, who have also won seven out of seven, in a crunch clash at the top of the table.
