Norman Pratt Trophy Final

Ingleton FC Reserves 2 Rolls FC Reserves 5

Ingleton had an early boost by scoring within the first minute through a Sam Hutchinson goal which rocked Rolls back on their heels. Rolls gradually gained their composure and levelled matters with a goal from a set piece. Ingleton went into the break ahead when Jonny Lister coolly slotted home a penalty. After the break Rolls came out quicker to the ball equalising with another set piece and the youthful Ingleton side, who were missing two key midfield players, had no answer to Rolls height and physical game. Rolls scored three more goals to run out comfortable and deserved winners. Rolls goalscorers were Gareth Turner(2), who also gained the Man of the Match award, Chris Bell, Paul McDowell and Chris Gaskell.

Long serving referee, Alan Robinson kept the game flowing, teaming up well with experienced assistants, Bruce Daggett and David Helliwell

Morrison Cup Final


Ingleton FC 4 Horton FC 2

Craven League side Horton FC who were appearing in their first District Association Cup Final gave an excellent account of themselves against the experienced North Lancs League side Ingleton FC in front of the largest crowd seen at Settle Utd AFC for many years.  Both Clubs can be proud large support that helped create a wonderful atmosphere full of good banter and humour.

Understandably Ingleton had much of the early possession taking the lead on the quarter hour, when Man of the Match Joe Towers scored the first of his hat-trick goals, however the Horton team stuck to their task never shirking a tackle and were rewarded with equalising goal on the stroke of half time when Danny Richardson coolly slotted home a penalty kick following an hand ball by an Ingleton defender.

Two early second half goals gave Ingleton the control but surprisingly Horton pulled a goal back when substitute Kyle Frik headed home a corner on seventy five minutes, which had the Horton supporters roaring with delight; however Ingleton clinched the cup with a fourth goal on 82 minutes.

Craven FA President, Peter Marsden presented the trophies and congratulated both teams on a good old fashioned game of football, full of pride and energy, which was fine example of grassroots football, excellently refereed by Matthew Buckmaster and his experienced assistants, Stuart Hoyle and Noel McEvoy, giving him wonderful support throughout the game.
