Pendle Renegades had a tough start to life in the Craven League First Division.

Renegades got their noses in front through Danny Paton after capitalising on some hesitant defending, but Settle equalised after Matt Dickinson diverted the ball into his own net.

Paton then got the home side back in front from a free kick, only for Settle to level on the stroke of half-time as a shot was cleared off the line by Dickinson, only to rebound in off the back of keeper Kirk Mallaburn.

On the hour Settle got their noses in front for the first time after Renegades were second onto a loose ball in the box.

Then the floodgates opened and a further six goals were added in the last 15 minutes. Fair play to Settle who were clinical in the last 15 minutes but a harsh scoreline to say the least. Man of the match was Shane Taylforth for the hosts.
