Klosters beat Filey Flyers 4-0 to lift the FA Sunday Cup.

Filey started brightly and almost got in behind the Klosters back four a couple of times, only for a last ditch tackle from Nicky Sumpton and a block from the alert Klosters keeper Danny Cowton kept them at bay.

Klosters settled into the contest and started to look dangerous with Georgie Rose and Ashley Townley running things at the heart of their midfield.

It wasn’t long before Rhys Howell’s men took a deserved lead, Liam Vasey’s acrobatic effort taking a huge deflection and leaving keeper Mikey Hunter with no chance.

Howell’s men were now in complete control of the contest and doubled their lead when a neat team move resulted in the ball finding Ashley Townley on the edge of the box.

Townley turned neatly and smashed in to make it 2-0.

Further chances for Liam Vasey, Neil Fryirs, Carl Townley and Tom Scales were spurned before Klosters extended their lead to 3-0 heading into the interval.

Liam Vasey found himself in space before neatly lobbing Hunter.

The second half was a quieter affair with neither side creating any clear-cut chances in the opening exchanges.

Both sides made several changes as the large Queensgate playing surface started to take its toll on the players.

One of Klosters’ substitutes, Matty Turner, grabbed their fourth and last goal after he beat the offside trap before clinically thrashing into the bottom corner with his left foot.

Klosters thoroughly deserved their win after dominating large parts of the contest.

Rose was the stand-out performer in the Klosters midfield, while Ashley Townley also shone.

Filey were occasionally dangerous on the break with the pace of James Pinder always a danger, but they were outplayed in the midfield as Klosters eased to their success.
