St John Fisher captain Irfane Khan could be on the verge of lifting three trophies this season.

St John Fisher completed the first leg of a potential treble beating Woodman Batley Carr 2-1 in the Heavy Woollen Challenge Cup final at Ossett Albion last Wednesday.

Fisher are almost certainly guaranteed the Heavy Woollen Sunday League and Cup double as they lead the Premier Division by three points from Birkenshaw.

Fisher all but confirmed the destination of the title after they thrashed bottom side Battyeford 9-0, while main rivals Birkenshaw lost 1-0 at Millbridge WMC.

Rob Bordman, Dominic Simpson and Rob Hiscox all fired doubles for Fisher, who also had Ricky Newman, Anthony Doran and Irfane Khan on the scoresheet.

Club captain Khan lifted the Heavy Woollen Challenge Cup the previous Wednesday and will bid to steer his side into the Brook Butler Cup final this Sunday when Fisher take on Birkenshaw at Beck Lane in what should be a cracking semi-final.

Liam Fox hit the game’s only goal as Millbridge WMC all but ended Birkenshaw’s defence of the title.

Woodman Batley Carr are already through to the Brook Butler final after they defeated Mirfield Town 4-3 after extra time last Sunday.

Fisher will be confirmed as Premier champions if they take a point from their next league game at home to AFC Chickenley on Tuesday May 19.

Woodkirk Valley ended their Championship season in second place following a 2-0 win at Hartshead thanks to goals from Will Clapham and Stuart Dodd.

Heckmondwike Sports Club finish fourth after goals from Craig White, Ashton Vahovic, Ross Palframan and Richard Hartley saw them win 4-3 against St John Fisher Reserves, who had Jake Gibson (two) and Charlie Frear on target.

Division One leaders Navigation had their lead cut to just two points after losing 5-3 to second placed Deighton WMC.

Dale Joy fired a brace for Deighton, who also had Paul Krol, Daniel Stuart and an own goal on the scoresheet.

Navigation replied through Bobby Campbell, Dave Blakeley and Daniel Stephenson.

Navigation still have a game in hand on Deighton and three of their remaining four matches are at home, starting with the visit of The Yorkshireman this Sunday.

The top two also meet again in a potential title showdown on Tuesday May 26.

Ravenwharfe slipped out of the top two after they went down 5-2 at the hands on Birkenshaw Reserves.

Duane Fascione hit both goals for Ravenswharfe, but Jack Rogerson (two), Tom Smith, Alex Brown and Harry Saville ensured the three points went to Birkenshaw.

Ravenswharfe must win their final match at Clifton Rangers on Sunday to maintain their slim hopes of a top two finish.

Town Rangers lie fourth after a hat-trick from Joe Wills, plus a goal from Scott Thornton saw them win 4-1 at Punch Bowl (Josh Wood).

Bay Horse East Ardsley ended their season with a win after strikes from Kyle Walker, Declan Hidle, Michael Varley and Danny Carroll saw them win 4-2 against Battyeford Reserves.
