St John Fisher Old Boys are celebrating completing a treble trophy haul in what has been an incredible season for the Dewsbury side.

Fisher edged out Woodman Batley Carr last month to win the Heavy Woollen Challenge Cup final at Ossett Albion and complete the first leg of the treble.

The two sides met again last Sunday in the Heavy Woollen District FA Brook Butler Cup final in front of a healthy crowd at Beck Lane.

Anthony Doran put Fisher ahead in the first half and goalkeeper Michael Smith produced a superb save to preserve his side’s advantage going into the break.

Rob Hiscox slotted home a penalty and Rob Bordman added a third to seal victory and add a second trophy to the cabinet.

Fisher had a quick turnaround but secured the Heavy Woollen Sunday League Premier Division title on Tuesday evening when they drew 1-1 with AFC Chickenley.

That result put Fisher four points ahead of nearest rivals Birkenshaw with both sides having one game remaining.

The champions round off a memorable campaign at home to Woodman this Sunday.

Martin Knowles, Luke Chippendale, Dave Chadwick, Wayne Sparkes, Kenneth Harland, Abdur Rahim, Theor Burja and Scott Morrison were the Palestino scorers, with Matty Softley replying for Cleckheaton.

Cleckheaton had previously secured a 2-0 midweek win over Savile Town thanks to goals from Nathan Williams and George Garforth.

Athletico followed up a 3-2 midweek win over Mount Pleasant with a 7-1 victory against Savile Town last Saturday.
