THE 2021-22 season could hardly have gone better for newly-crowned Craven League Division One Champions AFC Crossleys.

Not only are the Halifax-based side the only team to have a 100% record across the league this season, but they have also scored a mammoth 105 goals, including nine against hosts iPlay Barrowford on Saturday to claim the title.

Lewis Oldridge took his season total to 25 with a well-taken hat-trick, with Bailey Naylor, Trent Coulter, Ash Scully, Kaylum Moran Payne, and substitute Sam Cole also on target for the dominant visitors.

The only other team in action were their closest challengers Trawden Celtic Juniors Reserves, with goals from Jacob Karwicki and James Jack Greenwood enough for them to claim an away win of their own after edging past Grassington United Reserves 2-1.

There was just one match in the Premier Division, with second-placed AFC Barnoldswick battling back from two goals down to snatch a draw at home to Skipton Town First.

The hosts would consider a point a good result after being left with just 11 players and a late venue change to Holt House, with Luke Scott’s clever finish and Callum Uttley’s deflected cross seeing them reduce the gap to leaders Trawden Celtic Juniors to eight points.

In the only match in the division’s cup competition, Kyun Ellison’s hat-trick helped Grassington United progress to the semi-finals after thrashing Bingley Town 6-0 at Marley.

The prolific Fred Midgley also scored a brace for the third-placed visitors, who will travel to Trawden in the semi-finals.

Bradley delivered one of the surprise results of the day in Division 2 after claiming the points at home to title-challengers Barnoldswick Barons Senior Open Aged.

With the match also moved to Holt House, Andrew Waite’s close-range finish gave Bradley the lead in the 20th minute, before Ben Speak headed home the equaliser from a corner soon after.

Ben Metcalfe’s sensational free-kick wrapped up the win for the hosts late on, before manager Shaun West made his second debut to play the last five minutes of the match, 30 years on from his first appearance for Bradley.

Sutton secured a priceless three points after goals from Jack Sedgwick and Danny Dixon helped them to a 3-2 win at home to Otley Town 3rds, while Michael Jon Hartley’s brace saw last-placed Cowling pick up just their second win of the season at home to Skipton Town Reserves by the same scoreline.

The match between Grindleton and Barlick Wanderers was cancelled.

FC Keighley United are within touching distance of the Division 3 title after a comprehensive 5-1 win against Otley Town 4ths widened the gap between themselves and the chasing pack to eight points.

AFC Crossleys Reserves and Settle United 3rds aren’t far behind, with both now tied on 34 points after putting four past Cononley Sports Club 2nds and Carleton Sports Club 2nds respectively.

Jack Atkinson, Morgan Bagley, Ryan Carrington, and George Bainbridge were on target for Crossleys, while Joseph Dinsdale’s brace contributed half of Settle’s total.

A tasty Division 3 cup clash between AFC Crossleys and FC Keighley United Open Age will certainly be a result to keep an eye on next weekend.
