Newlands beat rivals Edgehill while West Pier were dumped out by Eastfield.


NEWLANDS 5 (McCoubrey 3, Logan, Exley) EDGEHILL 2 (Cooper, Jenking)

Newlands’ superb season continued after they deservedly beat rivals Edgehill 5-2 to advance in the District Cup.

The home side had to battle back to earn their place in the last eight after a defensive mix-up in their defence allowed Liam Cooper to nip in and open the scoring.

Shaun Mancrief’s men weren’t behind for long though as Sean Exley managed to stay on his feet when he could have gone down in the box before finishing well.

It was 3-1 to Newlands at half-time, Drew McCoubrey and prolific striker Billy Logan firing the home side into a comfortable lead.

That lead was furthered after the interval, McCoubrey netting his second of the afternoon.

Edgehill hit back through their stand-out performer Aaron Jenking, who dinked in from a tight angle.

But it was Newlands who rounded-off the scoring, McCoubrey completing his hat-trick.

Boss Mancrief picked out Kile Fields, Hugh Brown and McCoubrey as his side’s star men.

Newlands face Beckett League side Sinnington in the last eight.

EASTFIELD ST JAMES 4 (D Kelly 3, Price) WEST PIER 1 (G Thomas)

Eastfield surprised division one champions West Pier to move into the last four.

Pier led against the run of play, Gary Thomas smashing in from distance after good work from Sam Garnett.

It was all square at the interval though after Danny Kelly levelled matters up.

Target man Danny Price gave Eastfield the lead for the first time in the contest after 55 minutes before Kelly found the net two more times to complete his hat-trick and a comfortable win.

Pier stopper Scott Wardman had to be at his best to keep the scoreline at 4-1 as Eastfield launched attack after attack on his goal.

Kelly was Eastfield’s man of the match, while Wardman and Sam Garnett stood out for defeated Pier.

FILEY TOWN 4 (Pinder 2, Cappleman, Kapynski) RYEDALE SC 0

Jay Taylor’s Filey Town side breezed past Ryedale despite a somewhat lacklustre performance.

It was 1-0 to the home side at half-time, Lee Cappleman’s free-kick the only goal of a forgettable first half.

Town improved after a half-time dressing down from boss Taylor and were soon 2-0 up, James Pinder netting after 53 minutes.

Gary Wardell missed from the penalty spot, but that didn’t halt the home side and substitute Macie Kapysnki made it 3-0 soon after.

The scoring was wrapped up by Pinder, who grabbed his second after 82 minutes.

Taylor picked out Pinder as Town’s man of the match.

FALSGRAVE RESERVES 0 AYTON 3 (Vasey, Cooper, Stevens)

Ayton are into the draw for the semi-finals after they beat division three outfit Falsgrave Reserves 3-0.

Their goals came courtesy of veteran Mark Vasey, Danny Stevens and Josh Cooper.


SLEIGHTS RESERVES 3 ATHLETICO2B 3 (Bowman, Goodwin, Stockell) (Athletico2B won 4-3 on penalties)

Player-manager Nick David had a topsy-turvy afternoon as he saw his side win 4-3 on penalties at Sleights Reserves in the Frank White Trophy.

Athletico led 3-1 through goals from Jon Stockell, Shaun Goodwin and Chris Bowman before Sleights hit back to make it 3-2.

The Whitby side won a corner with the clock edging past 90 minutes and stand-in keeper David lunged out and conceded a penalty, which was converted and the game went to the penalty shoot-out.

David managed to save a Sleights penalty before stepping up and netting the winner.

Bowman was named as their man of the match.


WHITBY RFC 3 (Usher, Ross, Jobling penalty) WESTOVER RESERVES 2

A last-gasp penalty handed Whitby RFC a place in the next round of the League Trophy.

They were far from their best but goals from Marc Usher and Ste Ross had them 2-0 up before Westover hit back.

It looked like the game was going into extra-time after Westover equalised on 85 minutes, but they were awarded a last minute penalty and Paul Jobling made no mistake.

Centre-back Dave Welham was named as RFC’s man of the match.



Cayton failed to raise a side for their trip to Whitby Fishermen’s Society.
