Both sides played some good football without creating any clear cut chances and the game headed for penalties.

Scholes Park came out on top 3-2, Harley Adams, Coby Magson-Rowe and Sam Hampton all scored but the hero was keeper Daniel Taylor, saving three Kirkby penalties to guide his side to victory.


Scalby Juniors 1

Whitby Fishermen 4

League title rivals met in the cup final and it was Whitby who started the better.

A fine through-ball from Whitby man of the match Joseph Wilson found Rhys Kipling, who calmly lifted the ball over Freddie White in the Scalby goal.

Scalby got a fortuitous equaliser when Connor Avison took a free-kick from 35 yards out and the Whitby keeper thought it was going wide, only for the ball to drift into the net for 1-1 at half-time.

Whitby started the second half well, Kipling adding his second and Brogan Russell convertinh a penalty to make it 3-1.

With Scalby pushing on Whitby added a fourth through Ryan Hewison.

Scalby’s man of the match was impressive defender Samuel Norton.


Phoenix 5

Flixton Juniors 3

First and second met in the League Cup final with league winners Phoenix completing the double.

Jack Murray scored from 25 yards to make it 1-0, but Flixton equalised as Steven Kerr calmly slotted home past Charlie Hopper in the Phoenix goal.

Josh Fergus then put Phoenix in front with a fine strike.

Phoenix scored a couple of quick goals through Kaine Rennison and Murray’s second after the break.

Flixton came back into the game again with two goals from man of the match Harry Cooper, his second was the goal of the game as he got on the end of a fine passing move.

Phoenix got the fifth goal their performance deserved with man of the match Josh Fergus getting his second.

Flixton could only get 10 men for the final due to Yorkshire cricket call-ups.

Phoenix are now looking to step up into the men’s Saturday League.
