ROLLS are finding life much more difficult this time around in the Skipton Body Repair Centre Craven League Premier Division.

Third last season behind the Uniteds of Settle and Grassington, they are only fifth this time, having slipped from fourth on the back of a 2-0 home defeat against Pendle Renegades at the weekend.

Nathan Taylforth, in the 59th minute, and Jordan Slade, in the 77th, were on the mark for the seventh-placed Renegades.

Grassington United took advantage of Rolls' slip to swap places with them after a 7-1 victory at Manningham Allstars.

Jan Ozdoba (3), Michael Forman, Jeremy Gee, Daniel Hunt and substitute Fred Midgley were on target for Grassington, while Cowling are still sixth, despite despatching visitors Cross Hills 5-0 in a south Craven derby.

Luke Barker (3) and George Sellars (2) were Cowling's marksmen, while the men of the match were Tom Smith (Cowling) and Lee Thompson (Cross Hills).

Carleton are still leading the way in Division One after a 4-0 home win over struggling Hellifield Sports, Luke Howsen leading the way with a hat-trick.

Jamie Poulter got the other goal, while the respective gong winners were Liam Steadman (Carleton) and Matthew Beckwith (Hellifield).

Skipton Town, who won by the same score at AFC Colne, are up to second and also had a hat-trick hero.

Miles Thompson got the treble this time, with Sam Kimberley making up the tally and Ben Lowry taking the man of the match award.

Rolls Reserves took the drop from second after losing by that popular score of 4-0 at Settle United Reserves, whose goals came from Paul Ambrose, Dale Denham, Aaron Johnson and Ben Philip.

Another south Craven derby went the way of Bradley, who triumphed 3-2 at Cononley Sports, courtesy of Chris Hogg, Jim Robinson and James Robinson.

The victory meant that Bradley went up a place to eighth, swapping places with Sports.

Silsden Whitestar Reserves may be leading Division Two, but Bingley Town, with nine wins out of nine, look like champions elect.

Whitestar defeated visitors Barnoldswick Barons 11-3, with Brad Fay (4), man of the match Zac Conway (2), Simon Cox (2), Ryan Narey (2) and substitute Tom Appleby finding the back of the net, man of the match Gareth Turner bagging all three goals for the Barons.

Barlick Wanderers triumphed 6-4 at Pendle Renegades Reserves in a game that was predictably tight.

Wanderers, who are ninth, had Dan Holden (3), Tom Duerden, Matthew Shirt and substitute Matthew Ainscough on target, while the man of the match for tenth-placed hosts Pendle was Michael Hall.

Efforts from gong winner Oscar Canny (2) and Sean Clayton were not quite enough for Grassington United Reserves, who lost 4-3 at home to Ilkley Town Juniors Men's Academy, while Aiden Warhurst got AFC Barnoldswick's only goal in their 2-1 home defeat to Salts.

In Division Three, second-placed Cowling Reserves showed that the table doesn't lie with a 5-1 triumph at bottom-of-the-table Otley Town.

Marksmen were Jimmy Anson, Matt Lister, Callum Lowe, Seth Wiseman and Josh Wood, while Michael Towler was the sole marksman for Settle United Thirds in their 5-1 home defeat against leaders Burnley Belvedere.
