Horror injury taints thriller

SEAMER Reserves Andy Horncastle suffered the second leg break of his career in a horrific moment that marred an otherwise entertaining game against Ayton Reserves.

Horncastle, who only signed for Seamer recently, went straight to Scarborough Hospital in an ambulance in a incident that held up proceeding for over half an hour.

Injury aside, the game was a cracking affair, as the sides were forced to share the spoils after a 4-4 draw.

Seamer’s goals came courtesy of a Sam Walker double and strikes from Dan Jewitt and Nick Bell, but despite having led 2-0, 3-2 and 4-3, goals from Phil Wignall, Jamie Tyler, Sam Wallace and a last-gasp equaliser from Rob Ward ensured the sides had to settle for a point apiece.

Elsewhere in division three, Whitby RUFC hammered Scalby Reserves 13-0 as three players netted hat-tricks.

Damon Craig, Ian Rhucroft and Ben Watson all helped themselves to trebles against 10-man Scalby.

Craig netted after only 20 seconds as Whitby attacked straight from kick-off, and it was all down hill for John Hartley’s men from there as Stu Hancock, Ben Hoggarth, Lee Brennan and Mike Kilpatrick all netted.

Ganton’s miserable season continued as they were demolished 16-0 by flying Whitby Fishermen’s Society, who moved second behind Riskers United, whose game against FC Filey was called off along with Falsgrave Pirates’ tie with Heslerton.

In division two, Ryedale Sports Club maintained their unbeaten status as they saw off a plucky Filey Town Reserves side 2-0, as veterans Heath Brown and Marc Dobson netted a goal apiece.

A hat-trick from Michael Szlabski fired Cayton Corinthians Reserves to a 4-3 win at Snainton, as Dean Cross netted their other goal. Tom Gibson and Scott Davison ran the match from midfield for Cayton.

West Pier Reserves v FC Rosette and Newlands Reserves v Edgehill Reserves were both called off.
