BRADFORD Sunday Alliance Premier Division champions Olympic FC failed in their quest to win the West Riding County FA Sunday Cup as they were beaten 4-2 by HT Sports in the final at Woodlesford.

The Leeds Combination League Premier Division side took a two-goal lead but Olympic restored parity to make it 2-2.

However, second-half two goals from the New Farnley outfit, who beat Alliance side Crossflatts in the semi-final, proved crucial.

Olympic went through the entire league programme without dropping any points as they won 16 out of 16.

But they met their match in cup competitions, going out of the Bradford & District Cup on penalties after sharing six goals with Lyceum and being beaten in the Senior League Cup semi-final by eventual winners Crossflatts.

Oakenshaw and Sandy Lane kept pace with Olympic in the league initially but, after beating both teams twice, Olympic ran out comfortable title winners.

After a bad start to the season, defending champions West Bowling finished in mid-table.

In the Championship, Station Hotel led the division all season, only to be pipped at the post by Crossflatts, who won their last match of the season against Wyke 8-0 to pip them on goal difference.

Both promoted sides will surely enhance the Premier Division next season, having each claimed silverware this campaign.

Station won the District Sunday Cup, beating Premier opposition in the final, and Crossflatts claimed a triple, adding the Keighley Cup to League Cup and title triumphs.

In Division One, Beldon Oddies won the division by five points against their only serious challengers Tyersal but the Arkwright Street team did win the Intermediate League Cup at Manningham Mills.

Division Two Northern FC won the title by three points from AFC Titans, who were also assured of promotion.

In Division Three AFC Bingley went through the season unchallenged in pole position, not dropping any points in their quest to win the title. Bradford Celtic and Eastward had a tussle for the runners-up spot, with Celtic edging home by three points.
