NEWLY-promoted AFC Crossleys are the new leaders of the Craven League Premier Division after recording a 3-0 win at Cononley.

Trent Coulter, Dion Ozabruk, and Kaylum Moran Payne were on target for the Halifax side, who move two points clear of Silsden Whitestar at the top.

Baildon Trinity Athletic also struck three of their own on their way to victory at home to Grassington, moving them up to sixth.

However, the highest-scoring matches involved Ingleton and Cowling, who both hit five to ease past the division’s bottom two clubs, Skipton Town and Trawden Celtic Juniors Reserves.

Aaron Woodhouse netted a brace, alongside goals from Mark Dobson, Will Metcalfe, and David Whitfield as Ingleton built on a 2-0 half-time lead to thrash Skipton 5-0, with Cowling beating hosts Trawden by the same scoreline.

There were also four matches in Division One, where Chatburn had no problems finding the net to earn their first win of the season at home to Salts 3rds.

Despite going down to 10 men after Travis Blezard’s red card, Callum Pick and Oliver Stirzakrer both scored braces to help the Lancastrians to an 8-3 victory.

Reuben Pickett, Sam Richardson, Steven Tandy, and Dan Traynor were also on the scoresheet.

It was a similar story at the top of the table, with leaders Silsden Whitestar Reserves and second-placed Gargrave putting four goals past Barnoldswick Barons and iPlay.

Sam Stansfield’s hat-trick was the standout as Whitestar built on a 2-1 half-time lead to win 4-2, while Jacob Hopper’s strike proved to be just a consolation for iPlay as they were comfortably beaten 4-1.

Elsewhere in the division, Ben Shackleton’s brace and James Driver’s 19-minute hat-trick helped Grindleton claim a share of the spoils in an entertaining 5-5 draw at home to Bingley.

In Division Two, all eyes were on a top-of-the-table clash between FC Keighley United and Hellifield.

However, nothing could separate the sides in a 2-2 draw, with Leon Smith and substitute Harrison Storey on target for hosts Keighley.

That allowed third-placed Rolls Reserves, who have games in hand, to cut the gap to just one point after Spencer Jordan’s double helped them to a 4-1 win at Crosshills.

Ben Ramsden also scored twice in Bradley’s comfortable 4-0 win at strugglers Sutton, while Bailey Naylor’s goal wasn’t enough to stop AFC Crossleys Reserves from falling to a narrow 2-1 defeat at Otley Town 3rds.

There were plenty of goals in Division Three, including a 10-goal thriller between Carleton and Sutton Reserves, with the hosts running out 7-3 winners.

Second-placed Colne also had their shooting boots on, recording a 5-1 win at home to fellow Lancastrians iPlay.
