Cononley Sports moved back to the top of the Mastab's Craven League Premier Division after an 8-1 thrashing of Carleton away from home.

Robert Kaminski, Jamie Page and substitute Craig Gregory all bagged two goals apiece, with Mark Bradley and Liam Mulloy adding further goals.

They go ahead of reigning champions Skipton LMS, who lost 4-3 at third-placed Trawden Celtic.

Rolls edged past Wilsden Athletic to go five points clear of their opponents in mid-table. An exciting second half saw all five goals scored in Rolls’ 3-2 victory.

Two goals from striker Jimmy Anson put Cross Hills on their way to a 3-0 win at home to Embsay, a result which sees them leapfrog them in the table by virtue of goal difference.

Silsden Whitestar found themselves on the wrong end of a 5-3 defeat to Hellifield Sports in Div-sion One. Whitestar were level at half-time before Sports outscored them 4-2 in the second half.

It remains tight at the top in Division Two after the top three clubs Colne, Bingley Town and Skipton Town all recorded home victories.

Colne remain at the top with a 3-1 success over Ingrow and Worth Valley, while Bingley Town and Skipton Town breezed past Rolls Reserves and Cross Hills Reserves, winning 8-2 and 5-1 respectively.

Cononley Sports Reserves meanwhile played out a 3-3 draw with Earby Town.

Broomhill went down to their first league defeat of the season, 3-2 at Grassing-ton United Reserves, who went seven points clear at the top of Division Three.

Grassington led 2-0 at the break before Broomhill came fighting back with goals from David Rhodes and Andrew Tanner but United edged home. Settle United Reserves suffered a poor 2-1 defeat at lowly Ilkley, which rooted Cowling Reserves to the bottom of the table after their 3-2 loss at Salts.

Oxenhope Recreation were on scoring form away from home after they picked up a 5-3 win at Sutton.

New signing Leroy Hick-man stroked in the opener after ten minutes and they doubled their tally with Tony Cooper’s powerful 25-yard strike.

Sutton hit back with a goal but, just before half-time, Grez Robinson curled in a free-kick to re-establish the two-goal cushion.

Sean Quinlan made it 4-1 but Sutton hit back with two quick goals and Oxenhope had keeper Grahame Ellis to thank when he produced a fantastic double save. The points were made safe when Cooper was brought down in the box and he put away the spot-kick.

Manningham Allstars continued their unbeaten start in fine fashion with a 6-0 win at home to Adding-ham and Bradley eased past Sutton with a 4-0 victory in Division Four.
