SILSDEN Whitestar Reserves' hopes of finishing above Bingley Town in Division Two of the Skipton Body Repair Centre Craven League have receded even further.

The second string, whose man of the match was Zac Conway, may still be leaders but they lost 6-2 to their rivals at Wagon Lane.

Sam Stanfield and James Whitehead netted for the visitors, who have now won ten of their 14 matches and have 31 points.

However, Town are only a point behind them, having won ten out of ten.

Fifth-placed Grassington United Reserves beat basement boys Barnoldswick Barons 7-2, with the marksmen being Sean Clayton (3), substitute Oscar Canny (2), Carl Drewett and Declan Hawkins.

In Division One, Cononley Sports are only two places higher than Earby, but are a world away in terms of quality.

Sports won 7-0, with goal-scorers including man of the match Chris Lumsden (3), Tyler Carroll (2) and Miroslav Allen, and Earby have now lost all 14 of their matches, conceding 94 goals.

Cowling Reserves triumphed 12-0 at eighth-placed Settle United Thirds to go from second to first in Division Three.

Man of the match Kyle Willis led the way with four, and he was backed up by Callum Lowe (3), Seth Wiseman (2), Jimmy Anson, David Townson and substitute Jack Lister.

Meanwhile, Broomhill Reserves beat Horton 6-1 to book a quarter-final tie at Otley Town in the Division Three Cup.

Tyler Brigg netted four, taking his tally to 15 in the last three games and 24 in the last eight.

Completing the tally were Luke Thornton and Zak Wake.
