There was action in a host of local cup competitions this weekend, with wins for Edgehill Reserves and Newlands among others.
TROPHY TRADER LEAGUE TROPHY - ROUND 1
Edgehill Reserves 8 (Ferrey 3, Scales 2, Prosser 2, Jon Cairns) Whitby RFC 3 (Welham 2, Kilpatrick)
Player-boss Martyn Ferrey inspired his Edgehill Reserves side to an 8-3 success over third division Whitby RFC in the first round of the Trophy Trader League Trophy.
With his side trailing 3-0 after 20 minutes to strikes from Dave Welham (2) and Mike Kilpatrick, Ferrey changed Edgehill’s formation from 4-3-3 to 4-4-2 and his charges responded by smashing in eight goals without reply.
Tom Scales pulled one back before half-time but Ferrey then took centre stage as he struck a quick-fire hat-trick, the first of which was a stunning effort from 25-yards out.
A second from Scales, a brace from Jason Prosser and a Jon Cairns effort completed the scoring for the hosts.
Central midfielder JP Watson was Edgehill’s man of the match.
COASTAL SHELLFISH LEAGUE CUP - ROUND 1
Scalby 0 Newlands 2 (Stride, Delve)
Newlands are through to the second round of the Coastal Shellfish League Cup after a 2-0 win at Scalby.
The visitors bossed a one-sided encounter from start to finish but could not find a breakthrough in the opening 45 minutes as Scalby goalkeeper Matty Scott pulled off a number of impressive saves.
Shaun Mancrief’s side eventually broke Scalby’s resistance when Adam Stride netted against his old club with the second half just a few minutes old.
Luke Delve’s header made it 2-0 with 15 minutes remaining and although Leo Morton had the ball in the net for the hosts, his effort was ruled out for offside.
Mancrief told the Scarborough News: “Scalby’s goalkeeper Matty Scott was their man of the match, he made a number of great saves, we could have scored a load more.
“All the lads played well but sweeper Jamie Gallacher was our man of the match.”
FA JUNIOR CUP - ROUND 2
Aislaby United 1 (Temple) Seamer Sports Reserves 1 (M Morriss) Aislaby win 4-1 on penalties
Seamer Reserves suffered penalty shoot-out heartache at Beckett League outfit Aislaby United in the second round of the Scarborough and District FA Junior Cup.
Dave Graham’s side led until the 90th minute of the game after Matty Morriss headed home a Sam Park cross shortly before half-time.
However, Aislaby’s man of the match, veteran schemer Kenny Temple, popped up with a last-minute equaliser to send the game to penalties.
The hosts kept their nerve in the shoot-out to progress to the next round by a 4-1 scoreline.
Pickering Knights 1 Cayton Corinthians 5 (Pindar 3, Venner Cross)
Cayton progressed into the third round after a comfortable win against a young Pickering Knights side.
Jack Pinder was on form in front of goal, bagging himself a hat-trick, while Josh Venner and Dean Cross also got on the scoresheet.
NORTH RIDING COUNTY FA CUP - ROUND 1
Grangetown 10 Falsgrave 1 (Tolliday)
Falsgrave bowed out of the North Riding County FA Cup following a heavy defeat at Grangetown.
Billy Johnson’s depleted side were 5-0 down before Richard Tolliday tapped home from inside the six-yard box to reduces the arrears early in the second half.
A disappointed Johnson said: “We had a few players missing but it is no excuse for a really poor performance.
“Grangetown weren’t anything special but we made them look good.
“None of my lads had a decent game.”
Redcar Athletic 5 Seamer Sports 0
Under-strength Seamer were another local side who endured a miserable day on the road in the County Cup as they were beaten 5-0 at Redcar Athletic.
Midfielder Arran Wright produced a fine display for the visitors but his efforts proved to be in vain.
