Filey Town Reserves returned to the league with a Ryedale Hospital Cup 5-3 loss at home to Whitby Fisherman’s Academy.

Filey took the lead when an overlapping run from James Smith saw his cross find Jonny Keable, who finished neatly from 18 yards. Whitby soon equalised but once again Keable scored after a goalmouth scramble.

Whitby levelled and then took the lead to turn the game on its head.

The second half saw Whitby take a 4-2 lead before Craig Oliver scored from a corner poking the ball over the line, but with 10 minutes left Whitby made sure of victory scoring their fifth.
