Calder Valley sides start their quest for Parish Cup glory in Sunday’s first round with Booth and Mytholmroyd the leading hopes.

Booth head to Oxenhope, a team they scored 400-plus against in the competition two years ago en route to the final at Blackley, where they lost to Jer Lane.

Chris Shannon - now at Jer Lane - and Patrick Thomas both scored centuries in that meeting.

Booth play in the division above Oxenhope while Mytholmroyd host a Greetland side who play two levels lower than them.

There is an all-Calder Valley tie at Old Town where visitors Luddenden Foot will be strong favourites to progress.
