Eastfield progressed into the second round of the District Cup after a 13-12 penalty shoot-out win at Filey Town, while it seems new Ayton boss Steve Roberts can do no wrong, his side winning 3-1 at home to Whitby Fishermen’s Society.
FA DISTRICT CUP ROUND ONE:
Filey Town 1 (Pindar) Eastfield St James 1 (Burrell OG) Eastfield won 13-12 on penalties
Chris Ferrey quickly turned from penalty villain to penalty hero as he saved Lee Cappleman’s spot-kick to help his Eastfield side to a dramatic 13-12 win on penalties at Filey Town.
The game went to penalties after the sides drew 1-1 in the allotted 90 minutes.
Mark Barber’s throw-in somehow managed to go into the net as Town keeper Andy Burrell parried over the line, but James Pindar’s strike levelled things up and took the game to the penalty shoot-out.
Pindar and Lee Eblet missed for the home side, while Ferrey missed his spot kick.
When Lee Tate stepped up to take his second penalty and fired past Burrell, Cappleman needed to net and Ferrey pulled off a superb save to atone for his earlier miss.
Eastfield boss Nick Hegarty picked out Ferrey after a number of superb saves during the 90 minutes as well as his crucial penalty save, as well as Lee Tate as his star men.
Town boss Dave Brannan picked out youngsters Josh McKaig and Max Gage as two of his more impressive players on the day.

Ayton boss Steve Roberts’ revolution at Wilson’s Lane continued after his brace helped see off a strong Whitby Fishermen’s Society side 3-1.
Roberts has overseen a superb start to the season for the Ayton side, with them currently lying top of the first division, and they will also go into the hat for the second round draw following their win over the Fishermen.

It was 3-1 when Mikey Dennis scored with a neat effort from the edge of the box and Ayton were well in control.
Fishermen surged forward and had two efforts cleared on the line, one block in particular causing controversy as the visitors thought the ball had crossed the line, but Ayton held on for the win.
Boss Roberts said: “The whole team had to dig deep for the win as Whitby played well and had a lot of chances. Things are going our way at the moment and we have some momentum.”

Ryedale came out stronger for the second half after the home side had dominated the opening 45 minutes and levelled, but Elliot Sill, who had replaced the injured Kapysnki, fired in Edgehill’s winner.
Boss Clegg singled out Paul Watson, stand-in keeper Martin Cappleman and utility man Carl Hepples as his stand out men on the day.
Fishburn Park 0 Newlands 2 (J Logan, Fields)
Shaun Mancrief’s depleted Newlands side also sealed their spot in the next round after battling to a 2-0 win in difficult conditions at Fishburn Park.

They were 1-0 up after 25 minutes when Tommy Barker’s corner was flicked on by Steve Sheader to his centre-back partner Sam Hyde, who continued his scoring form by bundling in his third of the season.

Danny Birley restored Scalby’s advantage after the interval though with a superb first-time strike.
