Only one match failed to take place on Saturday - Wharfedale Gate being unable to raise a team against West Bradford in Division Two - and the clash of the day was in the Skipton Building Society Premier Division where leaders Oxenhope entertained Embsay.

And Oxenhope, hit by injuries, fielded a below strength side and went down to an excellent display by Embsay, who won 4-1 after Oxenhope had taken the lead.

Skipton Bulldogs had a 3-0 victory over Colne Cricket Club thanks to two late goals and the title race now looks to be revolving round Embsay and Bulldogs.

Addingham lost ground when they lost at home to Haworth 2-0, while Keighley continued their improved form with some excellent football which saw them defeat Cowling 5-3. Cross Hills went down 3-0 at home to Skipton LMS.

There are new leaders in Division One with Intake taking a point from Gargrave in a 1-1 draw to go a point clear of Silsden and Rimington but Intake have played more matches.

Rimington kept in contention with a 5-1 victory over Oxenhope while Silsden were involved in a First Round League Cup match against Carleton which they won comfortably 6-0. Grassington continue to struggle for after being two goals up against Bradley they went on to lose 4-3 and slip further into relegation trouble, while Grindleton held on for a 2-1 victory over Keighley.

In Division Two leaders Haworth defeated Hellifield 3-1 to stay top closely followed by Barrowford, who had a 3-2 victory away at Barnoldswick United. Embsay and Bronte Wanderers shared the points with a 1-1 scoreline in a match Embsay will want to forget as they created enough chances to have won by a big score. Clitheroe visited Eastburn Rangers and finished up 3-1 winners to stay on the fringe of the promotion race.

Division Three leaders Addingham suffered their second defeat when they lost to second-placed Cowling 5-2, leaving Cowling a point behind them.

Cononley forwent ground advantage and travelled to Earby and found the decision to switch grounds worthwhile winning 4-2.

In the Division Three League Cup there were victories for Skipton Bulldogs, who beat Intake 4-1, and Skipton LMS, who beat Grindleton 1-0.

Division Four leaders St Pauls suffered their first defeat of the season when they lost to second-placed Sutton 3-0 after a fine performance by Sutton, and Hellifield and Horton kept in the promotion race, Hellifield defeating Skipton Town 4-1 and Horton travelling to Colne Cricket Club and winning 2-0.

A close match at Bradley saw the home side eventually win 4-3 against Settle and Lothersdale went down at home against Silsden 4-1.
