EDGEHILL came through a potentially tricky tie against third division promotion chasers FC Soba and booked their place in the Coastal Shellfish League Cup third round draw.

Terry Jenkinson’s men were in charge from the word go and they managed to move into an early lead and never looked back.

Skipper Ricky Greening was in top form in front of goal for a depleted Edgehill side.

The former Pickering Town man helped himself to four goals as he helped his side cruise through to the next round.

Ex Filey Town duo Paul Allick and Lalan Flynn were also on target, Allick bagging two goals for himself.

Edgehill’s assistant boss Steve Clegg made a return to action after a long injury lay-off, and he was quick to praise the efforts of his players after the game.

Clegg said: “It was a very one sided match really.

“We were missing eight players for the game and I thought they would offer a bit more than they did.

“All the players who came in to the side did well today and deserve a lot of credit for their performances.

“Matty Burling did well at centre-half, Dane Ramos and Lalan Flynn controlled the midfield and Ricky Greening played well up front.
