Park End 1 Trafalgar 2 (Exley, B Logan)

Cup-holders Trafalgar worked hard to earn a third round win in the North Riding FA Sunday Challenge Cup at a Park End side who had not been beaten this season before this cup clash.

Sean Exley opened the scoring for the visitors after only 20 minutes, firing home after a fine pass squared to him by Billy Logan.

The home side replied after the break, and, just as the game seemed to be heading for penalties, Logan netted the winner with a strong, low shot after a surging run from the halfway line, with Exley this time providing the assist.

Boss Liam Salt said: “This was a great win with the whole team playing well to earn us a cup win against a very good side.”

Division one

Klosters 0 Newlands 5 (R Cooper 3, one pen, Josh Hakings pen, Gallagher)

A virtuoso performance from midfielder Ryan Cooper steered division one leaders Newlands to a crucial 5-0 win at second-placed Klosters.

After a close first 25 minutes, the visitors gained the opening goal through a penalty from Josh Hakings.

This lead was doubled before the interval with a great header from Cooper after a free-kick.

Cooper’s second strike gave the away side some breathing space in the second half, and Jamie Gallagher made it 4-0 after a fine team move capped by Cooper’s precise pass.

Cooper completed his hat-trick with a penalty with the last kick of the game.

Newlands stand-in manager Ben Luntley said: “Ryan was definitely man of the match as he put in an Aaron Ramsey-esque performance in midfield, while Sam Cooper was solid at right-back.”

Jack Hakings, who was running the team with Luntley, added: “The whole back four played very well as did our keeper George Elliott who made a crucial save in the first half when the game could still have gone either way.”

Klosters man of the match was centre-half Lee Luntley.

Fylingdales 3 (Faichney, Agar, M Waterfield pen) Itis-Itis 3 (Marton, Laing, M Oldroyd)

Two goals in the final five minutes earned Fylingdales a share of the spoils at home to Itis-Itis.

The visitors opened the scoring through Carl Marton, but a thunderous 20-yard volley from Jake Faichney brought the scores level.

Itis-Itis then struck the bar with a penalty from striker Ian Laing, but a further two goals - from Laing and Mark Oldroyd - looked to have earned the win for the away side.

In the 85th minute Jamie Agar struck a second for the villagers and in the final minute they were awarded a penalty, which Mark Waterfield tucked away neatly to snatch a point for Fylingdales after a below-par display.

Midfielder Jamie Williams impressed for the visitors.
