KEIGHLEY RUFC are set to host Bradford District rivals Baildon on Saturday, May 6 for the right to reach the Yorkshire Shield final.

And waiting for the winners of that encounter will be another derby rival in Bradford Salem.

None of the quarter-finals went ahead as scheduled at the weekend, with all of the semi-finalists into the last four thanks to a walkover.

Salem were due to face Wetherby in the semis, but the North Yorkshire side have pulled out of the competition.

That has given Salem an automatic pass into the final, with coaches Neil Spence and Glenn Morrison looking to leave the club on a high with silverware.

But the duo’s departure was not a mutual decision, and has led to friction down at Shay Lane, so whoever does make it through out of Keighley and Baildon will fancy their chances of triumphing.

Both sides would love to toast Yorkshire Shield success to round off an impressive season.

Newly-promoted Keighley only just missed out on going up again after coming second in Counties One Yorkshire, while third place was not quite enough to get Baildon out of the division below.
