Man of the match Chris Hannam smashed into the top corner to level matters up again, only for Town to go ahead at 3-2.

Whitby Fishermen were made to work hard for their 6-4 win at Filey Town Reserves in the League Cup.

The away side's dominance continued after the interval, Lewis Peel firing them 3-1 up before Storr grabbed his second to make it 4-1 and seemingly kill the cup tie off.

Back came Town though and the Fishermen took their foot off the gas, allowing the home side to battle back to 4-4 in an amazing turnaround.

Fishermen weren't to be denied though and Peel grabbed his second to make it 5-4 before Storr wrapped up his hat-trick to round things off at 6-4.

Stand-in boss Mark Storr handed hat-trick hero Karl Storr the man of the match honours, but also praised 16-year-old midfielder Elliott Anderson after another impressive display.

Goalsports Reserves fell to a 5-3 defeat at home to Kingston Hull in the East Riding County FA Qualifying Cup.
