AFC CROSSLEYS are looking untouchable at the summit of Division One of the Craven League after scoring an incredible 18 goals against second-placed Trawden Celtic Juniors Reserves on Saturday.

Lewis Oldridge, Kaylum Moran Payne, and Archie Birchall all netted hat-tricks, whilst Declan Alchin and Trent Coulter also came off the bench to score on a memorable afternoon for the clean sheet keeping hosts, who are now 11 points clear at the top of the table.

Elsewhere, Nick Breckon’s double helped Grassington United Reserves win 5-3 to overtake opponents Salts 3rds.

The goals were also flowing for Settle United Reserves, who picked up just their second win of the season after beating iPlay 5-2.

Grassington United were the big scorers in the Premier Division, with Josh Metcalfe, Reece Fowler and substitute Kyun Ellison scoring twice in their 8-1 demolition of Cowling.

The only other match in the division saw substitute Tom Hunter’s second-half goal rescue a point for Skipton Town as they drew 1-1 at home to title contenders Trawden Celtic Juniors.

With second-placed Barnoldswick Barons Senior Open Age drawing 2-2 at home to Bradley and Hellifield Sports losing 1-0 against Barlick Wanderers, Padiham Juniors extended their lead at the top of the Division Two table after beating Otley Town 3rds 3-0.

Harrison Yeoman’s hat-trick secured the points for the league leaders, with the prolific forward now comfortably leading the division’s scoring charts after netting his 20th goal of the season.

Sutton also secured the three points at Crosshills Reserves after goals from Shaun Bell and James Waddingham helped them to a 2-1 win, though they were perhaps unlucky not to have scored more after dominating proceedings.

In Division Three, the race for promotion is hotting up, with Rolls Reserves’ 6-2 thrashing of strugglers Sutton Reserves seeing them move into second, while Settle United 3rd drop to third after they were put to the sword 5-1 by Cononley Sports Club 2nd.

However, both are still a way behind leaders FC Keighley United Open Age, who are now eight points clear at the top of the table following a comfortable 4-2 win at 10th placed Bingley Town Reserves.

Elsewhere in the division, Morgan Bagley scored twice as 10-man AFC Crossleys Reserves comfortably beat Carleton Sports Club 2nds 4-0, despite Jake Kennedy’s red card.
