Crackenedge’s superb run in the West Riding County FA Challenge Trophy came to an end at the quarter-final stage when they slipped to a 2-1 defeat at home to Honley last Saturday.

Crackenedge had beaten Beeston St Anthony’s Reserves, Robin Hood Athletic Reserves and Mount St Mary’s on their way to the last eight but they were below par as Honley secured victory and progressed to last night’s semi-final at the County FA headquarters.

Adam Williams scored Crackenedge’s goal but it wasn’t enough to prevent them bowing out.
