BINGLEY TOWN are beginning to find their feet after a disappointing start to their Craven League Premier Division season.

After winning two of their opening 10 matches, the Marley-based side recorded back-to-back wins on Saturday in an evenly-matched contest against Carleton Sports Club, with Jordan Bayliss’ 29th-minute strike setting them on their way to a 2-1 victory.

Mish Allen and Will Leeming condemned Cowling to a fifth defeat of the campaign as they lost 2-1 at home to Cononley Sports Club, while Silsden Whitestar are just one point behind leaders AFC Barnoldswick after edging out Skipton Town 1-0.

Grassington United Reserves were the big scorers in Division One, with Nicholas Breckon and David Greenwood both scoring twice in a 7-1 thrashing of iPlay.

Elsewhere, Silsden Whitestar Reserves’ afternoon went from bad to worse as Tom Lohan suffered a broken fibula in their defeat at runaway leaders AFC Crossleys, with a Sam Cole hat-trick helping the hosts to a dominant 6-0 win.

Salts 3rds moved up to fourth after they comfortably beat Settle United Reserves 3-1, while nothing could separate Chatburn First and Ingleton in a 1-1 draw.

With Division Two leaders Padiham Juniors seeing their match against Sutton postponed, Barnoldswick Barons Senior Open Age missed the opportunity to close the gap at the top of the table after losing 3-1 at home to Crosshills Reserves.

Kallum Kirk ensured that Otley Town 3rds picked up their second win of the season against Barlick Wanderers, while Elliot Masher made a near-instant impact off the bench to earn Grindleton First a 1-1 draw at Hellifield Sports Club.

Goals were flowing in Division Three, with Carleton Sports Club claiming a valuable three points after beating iPlay 2nds in an eight-goal thriller thanks to braces from Tommi Oddie and Shay Packer.

Rolls Reserves also had no problems finding the back of the net in their 4-1 win against fellow promotion hopefuls AFC Crossleys Reserves, with the prolific Daniel Paton now division top-scorer after a well-taken hat-trick.

Elsewhere, Henry Brewis, Tom Coe, and Liam Finney were all on the scoresheet as Weston Lane Juniors eased to a 3-1 victory at home to Otley Town 4ths, while Cononley Sports Club 2nds raced into a 2-0 half-time lead to beat Sutton Reserves by the same score-line in an evening kick-off.
