ADDINGHAM were not complaining after a scorching season finally saw rain, which wiped out the whole Aire-Wharfe programme on Saturday.

They had a winnable tie against Colton Institute but it was an away fixture, whereas Division Two rivals Tong Park Esholt and Horsforth Hall Park were both at home, facing struggling Kirkstall Education and Steeton respectively.

Addingham are currently second, eight points clear of Tong Park and 10 ahead of Hall Park, with one game remaining.

Steeton managed to avoid that tricky tie at Hall Park and in doing so, ensured their Division Two safety as the abandoned programme confirmed that Calverley and Leeds Modernians will be in Division Three next season.

Skipton are marooned in mid-table obscurity in Division Three but missed the chance to guarantee seventh spot after their game at Menston was cancelled.

In Division One, Otley and Burley will be fighting for the championship in Saturday’s final round with the former on top by just two points.

Green Lane’s hopes of escaping from Division Three still mathematically exist, but they need New Rover to lose at Alwoodley which seems unlikely.

Meanwhile, the rained off matches ended any hopes Bolton Villas had of joining the Division Two promotion race.
