Trawden Celtic got their season underway on Saturday, but their game with Settle United was abandoned just before the half hour afteran injury.

The game was poised at 1-1 after 27 minutes against reigning champions Settle, with Michael Hodson on target for Celtic.

But Settle’s Josh Dray sustained a leg injury which put a halt to proceedings as an ambulance was called.

The match was subsequently abandoned and will be rescheduled.

Celtic would like to send their best wishes to Josh for a speedy recovery and return.

Tomorrow, Celtic travel to play Grassington United at Gargrave Cricket and Football Club.

Celtic’s reserves claimed a 4-0 win at Skipton Town Reserves.

Celtic started well and early in the game went 1-0 up from a Daniel Pinder free kick.

They extended their lead through Sean Thompson, but needed a brilliant save from keeper Joe Prosser and a goal-line clearance from Lee Holdsworth at vital times, to keep their 2-0 lead at the break.

Town came out strongly in the second half,, putting Celtic under pressure, but, following some good build up play, a screamer from Jack Greenwood virtually sealed the win.

Late in the game, man of the match Greenwood got his second and Celtic’s fourth to give them the three points and a terrific start to the season.

The reserves are next in action at Grassington on September 2nd.
