A little more headway was made in reducing Craven & District Football League fixtures on Saturday, although five matches still fell victim to the weather and one was called off because Carleton Reserves could not raise a team.

In view of the very crowded end of season fixture list, it is possible those matches will not be re-arranged, although in the case of Carleton, it is a case of an unfulfilled fixture and the possibility of points going to the opposition.

Skipton LMS are still on course for a Grand Slam of Craven Trophies after reaching the semi-final of the Northern Plant Hire Challenge Trophy by defeating Cowling 8-0.

Their lead at the top of the Silentnight Premier Division was reduced to five points when Skipton Bulldogs and Oxenhope Recreation both recorded victories on Saturday, Dogs defeating Embsay 3-2 and Oxenhope beating Cross Hills by the same score.
