CROSS Roads A won the Hebden Sunday Morning Team KO event as expected after a comfortable win over Old Town A at Todmorden Park.

They began their day with an easy win over a poor Mytholmroyd BC A, who could not muster a winner in a one-sided match in the semis, before doing a similar demolition job on Old Town A in the final itself.

Despite having two losers, big wins by skipper Neil Hargreaves and Craig Wilkins clinched an easy victory.

In the Supplementary event, Cross Roads B reached the final after a narrow victory over Saville B in the semi-final with Trevor Hargreaves last-gasp win enabling the side to teach the final.

In the other semi, Denholme comfortably beat Riponden A and they followed up with a good effort to defeat Cross Roads with ease thanks to good wins by Steve Griffiths and Steve and Andy Hook.

For the losers, Trevor Hargreaves and Tito Arana produced the goods but to no avail.

In the Yorkshire Cup, Cross Roads progressed to the next stage after easily defeating Rastrick on a dreadful green at Eccleshill, while Settle could not raise a team and withdrew from the event.

In the mixed event for the Hutchinson Cup, Oxenhope shared the winners with Moldgreen Cons but were narrowly defeated by three points despite good wins by Trevor Douglas and Gary Bowdin.

They now go into the Radley Shield but won’t complain as they won this event some years ago.

Broughton Road progressed however in blustery conditions at Allan Park against Hove Edge B.

The Federation District League began last weekend but it could prove to be a tough challenge for Airedale A in Division One as they were well beaten by a strong Leeds A in both legs.

At home, locals Billy Cater, Mark Barker and Robbie Ellis had to be at their best to record victories but that was about it.

Elsewhere, Chris Wilson and David Scott won their games for Bradford in League Four in a tied match with Furness.

The Yorkshire ABA’s Veteran’s Inter-District begins on Friday with a new 1pm starting time for matches.

Skipton will be looking to improve after some bleak seasons in this event meet Castleford in the first match with the away team travelling to their old stamping ground at Pontefract BC.

The home leg is at Sutton but with a 1.45pm starting time as some players will be attending the funeral of ex-player David Calvert prior to the match.
