Kyle Fox struck twice and Gareth Barber also netted for the hosts as Ripon City and visitors Old Centralians brought the Division 2 season to a close with a 3-3 draw.

The point was enough to secure third place for Old Centralians who trailed second-placed Swillington Saints Welfare by goals difference alone. Brighouse Sports, however, went through the season unbeaten to take the title in some style.

Unbeaten Leeds Modernians Reserves are Alliance Division 2 champions.

Kirk Deighton Rangers Reserves finished runners up and Overthorpe Sports Club Reserves bottom after Saturday’s final outing, a 2-0 defeat at mid-table Rothwell Juniors.
