The heavy rain on Friday and Saturday meant only one game in the Wensleydale Creamery League went ahead at the weekend.

Richmond Buck managed to turn their run of narrow defeats on its head with a slender victory at home to Carperby at a wet Aldborough St John.

Carperby showed much improvements on recent performances and took the lead through a Scott Lambert free-kick on 20 minutes.

Buck responded with a shot that was tipped onto the post with a fine save by the keeper.

Maintaining the pressure, Buck were able to nudge the ball over the line, following a minute of scrambling in the box, with Danny Allen providing the crucial touch

Carperby battled well and were unfortunate to not take any points from the game as them forced Buck keeper Andy Young into a number of saves, with Carperby stalwart John Pickard turning in a typically menacing man of the match performance.

Buck then took all three points in fortuitous circumstances as a Connor Matcalfe attempt was wickedly deflected into the net with just ten minutes remaining.

Buck then ran the clock down before Carperby could find a deserved equaliser.
