THE first of the Craven FA Cup finals takes place on Friday as Barnoldswick United take on Colne United in the final of the Norman Pratt Trophy.

The match kicks off at 6.30pm on Barnoldswick United's ground.

Ingleton will face Barnoldswick United in the final of the Slater Marchant Craven Challenge Cup.

Ingleton came through 3-0 in their semi-final against Rimington while Skipton Bulldogs suffered their first defeat of the season as they went down 3-2 against Barnoldswick.

Ingleton controlled the first 45 minutes against Rimington and scored two goals from Jonathan Boadle and Mark Taylor.

Rimington were much more in the game in the second half and Eric Geldard, Warren Jackson and Paul Sayle all had comparatively straightforward chances.

Mark Taylor scored from a free kick near the end to make sure for Ingleton in a match which was played in good spirit.

No details have been forwarded of Bulldogs' first defeat.

Morrison Cup semi-final

Rolls Royce 3 Cononley 1

ROLLS gave their opponents a lesson in finishing, putting away their three chances clinically as Cononley missed a sackful.

Cononley's midfield quartet showed no respect for their East Lancashire League opponents and dominated the middle of the field while their defence restricted the Rolls attack to a few sights at goal.

Rolls went ahead when keeper Andrew Newton misjudged the flight of a ball and a Rolls forward nipped in to score.

A goal bound shot from Jason Kendall was handled over the bar. He was sent off and up stepped Richard Mason to convert the penalty and equalise.

Things looked to be turning in Cononley's favour but they failed to turn attack into goals and Rolls went ahead again when a corner was headed home.

Cononley continued to press but were caught out when Rolls caught the defence square on the halfway line and broke away to put the game out of reach.
