SKIPTON LMS FC WIN THE CRAVEN CHALLENGE CUP

May 16, 2016

Craven Challenge Cup Final

Settle United AFC 1 Skipton LMS FC 1 (AET) Skipton LMS win 3-1 on penalties

 

An enthralling cup match played in front of a bumper crowd at Skipton Town AFC saw Skipton LMS win the Craven Cup for the first time in 13 years following a repeat of the 2003 final. Two survivors from that game, Settles David Worthington and LMS’s Wilf Freakes played major parts in a very tight game. Worthington prompting from midfield kept his young team mates purring along while

” Freaksy” was the match winner for LMS with three saves in the penalty shoot out, which his team won 3-1.

Settle United dominated the game for large parts as they stifled LMS who just couldn’t get in to their rhythm. Settle created the early chances with LMS keeper Will Freakes making a couple of crucial saves from Mark Loughlin and Lee Walker. Despite their nervousness it was LMS then that had the chances with Matthew Simpson and Ian Craven both failing to convert good opportunities and the half finished even.

Settle then took control of the early exchanges of the 2nd half and eventually took the lead through a Lee Walker goal after good work from Luke Hepton. LMS still struggled to get a foothold on the game but a small tactical change saw their fortunes change and they pushed to get the equalizer and it duly came when Settle failed to deal with a free kick resulting in Captain Chris Simpson smashing the ball home following good work from Joel Timmins and Ian Craven with virtually the last kick of the game.

Extra time came and went with LMS dominating the 30 minutes as Settle began to tire but LMS  failed to score the crucial goal and so it went to penalties and up stepped the hero of the moment Will Freakes who saved 3 penalties in the shoot out and that combined with scored penalties from Ian Craven, Matthew Simpson and Chris Simpson saw the celebrations begin and LMS lifting the much coveted Craven Challenge Cup. There were several eye catching performances including Robert Bingham and Oliver Hurst of LMS, while the clash of Barnoldswick Town team mates Matthew Simpson and Elliot Firth was also a feature with Firth’s display earning him the Ronnie Jones man of the Match Award.

It was a good match to watch, one that certainly did the prestigious cup proud, sincere commiserations must go to Settle who played very well. Referee Matthew Buckmaster and his team of Ray Torczuk and Chas Veighey gave an excellent contribution to the game. but huge congratulations to LMS who have had an excellent season and this Cup win coming on the back of extraordinary unbeaten Premier Division season.

The Craven Challenge Cup and trophies were presented to the teams by former Football League Referee and Craven FA Secretary, Mr Bob Turner

The Craven Challenge Cup competition kick started last Saturday with four first round games.  Last season’s beaten finalists Skipton LMS had a comfortable  victory at third division club Horton, with a resounding 10-0 win. Leading the way was Matthew Simpson with a quartet of goals.

There was a much closer game at Carleton with the home side registering a 4-3 win against newcomers AFC Barnoldswick. Stuart Gee, Robert Bradley and two own goals made up the Carleton goal tally.

Earby Town,  courtesy of a Michael Hall brace secured a 2-0 win against Embsay.

Bralick Wanderers suffered a 5-1 home defeat against premier team Grindleton; the score line did not reflect Barlick’s  gutsy performance.

Due to a shortage of referees the Cononley Sports v Settle United game was postponed. The acute shortage of referees will be discussed at the Craven FA’s next Executive Meeting in the hope a solution can be found to this problem, along with the FA’s mandatory additions to District FA Competition Rules.
