NO-ONE can accuse the Timothy Taylor’s Craven League of not spreading their cup finals geographically.

Thornton-in-Craven - on the Lancashire-Yorkshire border - will host the Wynn Cup final on Sunday, August 4 while, 20 miles away, Bradford-based Hepworth & Idle will stage the Cowling Cup finals day on Sunday, August 18.

Cononley, between Keighley and Skipton, is the venue for the John Clayton Cup final on Sunday, July 28, while Keighley’s Lawkholme Lane ground will stage the Manorlands Plate finals day on Sunday, August 25.

The semi-finals of the John Clayton Cup will be held on Sunday, July 14 and the semi-finals of the Wynn Cup a week after that.
