CRAVEN FA CUP GAMES

The District Cup games commenced last Saturday with all clubs and leagues giving support to the Executive Committee following the Football Association rule change to the Standard Code of Rules whereby it is was no longer compulsory for clubs to enter the competition or leagues to give open dates in order for District Cup fixtures to be played. On behalf of the Craven FA, I wish to offer our sincere thanks to all Clubs and Leagues within the Craven FA District for their continued support.

Blue Fin Challenge cup holders Rimington faced a tricky tie at in form Cononley Sports and were thankful for a narrow 2-1 win. Both sides were missing key players with Matt Bagot scoring a brace and Rob Kaminski replying for the home side who gave a good account of themselves.

Earby Town started their home tie against Bradley with 10 men after three players failed to turn up and it was half time before they had a full compliment. This was not the best of games with Bradley keeper James Monkhouse making several excellent saves to keep the score down to four, his side had chances in the first half bit failed to score but Jonathan Farrell scored on the half hour mark to give Earby the lead. It was not until the last 20 minutes that Earby took control with two Paul Oldroyd goals and Damon Whelan completing the scoring.

Morrison Cup holders Barnoldswick Town Utd entertained Skipton LMS with latter coming out on top in a hard fought 3-1 win. Luke Howsen, Robert Bradley and Paul Wilkin were on target for the winners.

There was a very good tie at Horton who entertained their Cumbria opponents Sedbergh Wanderers who finished victors by 4-2. The home side fielded three sixteen year olds in their squad in a very creditable performance, with Frank Jackson’s excellent shot giving them the lead before the visitors pulled a goal back to level the half time score. An injury to Jackson disrupted the team and it was on the hour that Sedbergh took the lead and control of the game scoring two further goals before a powerful shot by Danny Richardson was too hot for the keeper to handle and Neil Sutcliffe had an easy tap in to score Hortons second goal. The Referee Tony Venn said the game was joy to officiate as both teams just wanted to play the game in a sporting manner.

Last years beaten finalist Bentham travelled to Cumbria and defeated their hosts Dent by three goals to two. A poor first half performance by Bentham had them trailing by two goals to nil; however they rallied in the second half and goals from Sam Webster and Adam Wilcock to them into extra time, where in a thrilling end Daniel Briggs-Calvert scored the winner for Bentham.

Hellifield started their home game with Rolls with the majority of the possession but could not convert any chances; immediately after half time Rolls took the lead with a fantastic strike and a mix up in the defence presented the second goal before two late Rolls goals gave the 4-0 margin a flattering score line.

Skipton Town won a thrilling cup tie against Grassington United which required a penalty shoot out to decide the game. Grassington concede that they gave a below par performance; however they twice came from behind to take the game to extra time and penalties. Their goalscorers were Stuart Gee and Nicholas Breckon; whilst Liam Cartman and Jordan Slade scored for Town in a 2-2 draw, Cartman scoring with a superb 30 yard shot.

In the Norman Pratt Trophy the holders Rimington reserves had a comprehensive 11-0 victory at Pendle Renegades.

Grassington United Reserves took a two goal lead through James Morgan and Tom Bradford; however Grindleton reserves reduced the arrears when Simon Ryan cross-cum shot evaded the keeper and immediately Bridgeman levelled the scores with a header. Two early second half goals gave Grindleton control and Ryans second goal made the tie safe before Morgan scored his second and Grassingtons third in the 5-3 defeat.

Waddington stole into a four goal lead within the first 20 minutes and for much of the game Bradley were on the defensive restricting Waddington to a further two goals with Mark Harrison hitting a hat trick.

Embsay reserves were poor from start to finish and LMS were marginally better, LMS were 2-0 up in the first quarter of an hour when Dave Hargreaves scored with a well taken goal and John Bunnett scored with a blistering shot.

There were plenty of goals at Carleton in the 7-4 win for Settle United reserves, settle took the lead through a needless penalty in the second minute and this took the wind out of Carleton; however they got back into the game scoring two goals in quick succession with Settle levelling before half time. In the second half Settles youth and pace began to tell as they moved into a 6-2 advantage before two quick goals renewed Carletons optimism but a seventh goal from Settle ensured them victory. Goalscorers for Carleton were Matthew Dobson, Richard Gaunt and Sam Hunter(2) and for Settle Alistair Smith, Ryan Dunne, Sam Adnett(2). Liam Swanson(2) and Jason Cardus.
