STORM Arwen caused havoc across the region this weekend, with only a handful of Craven League fixtures going ahead due to the adverse conditions.

With all Premier Division fixtures cancelled or postponed, in Division One, Addingham First’s fixture against Chatburn First was reversed due to a waterlogged pitch, with the visitors coming out on top in a dramatic seven-goal thriller.

Greg Knox’s sublime overhead kick set Addingham on their way, and despite an own goal, James Hills restored their goal advantage on the stroke of half time with a composed finish.

Chatburn conceded a third before fighting back to level the scores with 15 minutes remaining, but they were dealt the cruellest of blows when Knox was played through to complete his hat-trick in the dying seconds to secure a vital three points for Addingham.

Ingleton First came from behind to thrash iPlay First 5-2, with the first goal of the match coming after just 20 seconds.

Dan Wilson, James Lawson, Andrew Jackson, and Mark Dobson were all on target for Ingleton in an action-packed opening 45 before Billy Metcalfe made sure of the points 10 minutes from time with the only goal of a lacklustre second half.

Elsewhere, Ian Craven’s double helped Grassington United Reserves dispatch last-placed Settle United Reserves 3-1 to move up the table to sixth.

There was also disruption in Division Two, with volunteers clearing snow off the pitch at Hellifield Sports ahead of their 3-3 draw against league leaders Padiham Juniors.

Hellifield came from behind three times in the top-of-the-table clash, with substitute Callum Walton’s late equaliser a just reward for their efforts.

Barnoldswick Barons Senior Open Age had no problems dealing with the weather, with a Matt Blackwell hat-trick and Dan Hughes brace seeing them thrash Grindleton First 7-2, whilst substitute Brad McDonnell scored twice to help Crosshills Reserves come from 4-3 down to beat Otley Town 4ths 7-4.

Barlick Wanderers First and Bradley First were also in action, playing out a controversial goalless draw.

The only match in Division Three saw leaders FC Keighley United Open Age comfortably beat last-placed Sutton Reserves 4-1.

All the goals came in a thrilling second-half, with Tyler Green, Tommy Horton, Michael Fazackerley, and Kieran Henry all finding the back of the net for the league leaders.

Away from League action, Cowling Reserves picked up their first win since their temporary move to Summerhill Lane after goals from Michael Jon Hartley (x2) and Chris Collier saw them progress to the Division Two Cup semi-finals with a 3-0 win against Sutton First.
