HARBOUR CUP QUARTER-FINALS

WEST PIER 4 (S Sheader, M Barker, Hartnett, T Barker) WHITBY FISHERMEN’S SOCIETY 1

Andy Spivey’s West Pier side moved into the last four of the Harbour Cup after a 4-1 win against a depleted Whitby Fishermen’s Society side.

Pier struck after 25 minutes when a Paul Provins free-kick found Steve Sheader, who side-footed in neatly to give the home side a 1-0 half-time lead.

Despite the away side improving after the break and an even second-half ensuing, Pier nudged further clear when a long punt upfield found Mikey Barker, who lobbed the Fishermen keeper.

Mark Storr’s men got a foothold in the game with a deserved goal on the hour mark, but the home side netted again to restore their two-goal advantage when Mike Hartnett finished neatly when he found space in the box.

The scoring was completed when a deep cross from Mark Oldroyd found Tommy Barker, who ghosted in at the back post to sweep in with his right foot.

Pier boss Spivey said: “Mikey Barker did well up front and set up a lot of chances that were missed by Gareth Sygrove and Paul Provins.

“I thought 4-1 flattered us a little but a win is a win and we’re through.”

RYEDALE 2 FILEY TOWN 5 (Pinder 2, Emerson, P Dickens, Tomlinson)

Division one table-toppers Filey Town also ensured their name will be in the hat for the semi-finals of the Harbour Cup after they disposed of Ryedale 5-2.

Filey started slowly and fell 1-0 behind, but they soon restored parity when James Pinder netted, and they were 2-1 up at the break after Phil Dickens headed in.

Filey took control after the break and were well ahead when Pinder’s second made it 3-1.

Ryedale then had a man sent off and Filey took full advantage, youngster John Emmerson netting his first for the club before Ricky Tomlinson got the fifth.

The home side bagged a consolation, but it was too little-too late.

Town boss Dave Brannan said: “If I’m being honest, we were very average. But we were still comfortable winners and it’s another win for the club.”

EDGEHILL A-A NEWLANDS PARK

A serious injury to Edgehill’s Andy Noon called an early halt to the quarter-final tie at Staxton between rivals Edgehill and Newlands.

The game was 10 minutes old when Noon went into a challenge with Newlands midfielder Jamie Gallagher and referee Oliver O’Brien had to call a halt to proceedings with Noon having to be taken to hospital with a suspected break of the tibia and fibia.

Ayton’s last eight clash at Lealholm was called off due to the snow on Lealholm’s pitch.
