KEIGHLEY A recovered a sense of pride when they comfortably beat Devon A at the revised venue of Rolls Royce in the Clarkson Cup final.

They conceded ten points handicap to their rivals and made a bad start as Robbie Ellis won 21-8 for Devon, but from then on they held sway and only had two more losers as they ran out winners by 17 points.

Neither team reached the heights they are capable of and in that respect, it was a disappointing match.

As predicted, the Supplementary Cup final at Gargrave went the way of relegated First Division side Settle A as they beat Third Division rivals Whinfield A.

Actually the outsiders shared the winners but big wins by Derek Seed, Mick Duke and Graeme Ralph clinched the game for the Dalesmen.

In the Hebden Royd League, past winners Cross Roads A had to make do with the runners-up place as the the title went to Old Town A for the first time for many years.

Relegated were Oxenhope B and Todmorden Park. In League Two, all three local teams finished in mid-table while Cullingworth B finished a close third in Division Three and stay put.

In the Aire-Wharfe Pairs League Division One, Cross Roads A were relegated to join their B team but the latter did well in the Division Two KO event, sharing the winners with Baildon B but winning overall by four points at Idle.
