OTLEY Town, who are eyeing the West Yorkshire League Division Two title, could well be in for a double.

They are through to the Wharfedale & District FA Challenge Cup final on Monday, May 7 at Guiseley AFC after a 4-2 victory at Horsforth St Margaret's A.

Barring their way, however, are Pool, who are bottom of the Premier Division and beat Route One Rovers, from the West Riding County Amateur League, 3-2 in the other semi-final.

Otley, who have a growing injury list, still managed to turn out a strong side at the Brownlee Centre, and took the lead after ten minutes via a bullet header from skipper Rick Parry from Jonathan Unwin's superb free-kick.

Another Unwin set-piece five minutes later - this time a corner to the near post - allowed Harry Leigh to glance home a header for 2-0, and they added a textbook third on the half-hour.

Parry's 40-yard pass went to the head of Luke Stainthorpe, who guided the ball down for man of the match Bobby Neesam to drill the ball home.

Horsforth, who were given a stern half-time dressing down, pulled a goal back five minutes in, but Stainthorpe made it 4-1 just before the hour from a Leigh cross.

However, Stainthorpe was then dismissed for a second yellow card, but St Margaret's could only pull one goal back.

Also making progress in a district cup are Oxenhope Recreation Reserves, who saw off Keighley Veterans 3-0 in the first round of the Keighley & District FA Supplementary Cup.

Meanwhile, Field's grip on the Alliance Division One title has become even firmer.

The only unbeaten team in the section, they defeated leaders Shelley 2-1, courtesy of goals from George Cull and Nick Doherty.

However, Shelley are not likely to be Field's main threat as they are now only five points ahead having played six games more.

The chief dangers could well be third and fourth-placed Beeston St Anthony's and Leeds City, who each have a game in hand on Field and only trail them by six and seven points respectively.

In Division One, second-placed Rawdon Old Boys survived having Carl McCallum sent off to defeat 12th-placed visitors Leeds Modernians.

Ben Durrant and Oliver Nightingale were the old boys' marksmen, while Wyke Wanderers climbed a place from fifth thanks to a 2-2 draw at home to Kippax.

Matt Conway and substitute Michael Stowell netted for Wanderers against their eighth-placed visitors.

Oxenhope Rec, who are 11th, crashed 6-1 at ninth-placed Aberford Albion, while cellar dwellers Brighouse Old Boys went down 3-0 at home to sixth-placed Boroughbridge.

In Alliance Division Two, leaders Otley Town were held to a 3-3 draw at Ilkley Town, whose goals came from Tim Edney (2) and Harry Marshall.

The point was good enough to push Ilkley up one place to sixth.
