Kirbymoorside reserves’ cup charge
3:28pm Wednesday 16th January 2013 in Sport
KIRKBYMOORSIDE Reserves conceded home advantage to Flixton in their Scarborough & District FA Junior Cup quarter-final and they had a weakened team – but it mattered little.
The Moorsiders breezed into the last four, joining Lealholm, Lingdale United and Loftus Athletic, with a 5-2 win.
Kirkby had to play away as their first team were at home. Player-boss Andrew Marley was also absent on his stag weekend so assistant manager Tom Bryant took charge.
His team took a two-goal first-half lead through Josh Butler and Rhys Piercy. Flixton’s teenage ’keeper, Thomas Hicks, also made two outstanding saves.
In the second half, Flixton started much better and drew level thanks to goals by Tim Jackson and Keith Skelton, but the Moorsiders, playing a quick passing game, hit back with two very quick ripostes by Jason Brown, who then completed his hat-trick with a penalty.
Brown and Butler were the Moorsiders. men of the match, with Jason Brown and goalkeeper Hicks taking the Flixton award.
Filey Town moved three points clear at the top of the Scarborough & District first division after a superb 6-0 win at Edgehill.
Leading scorer Phill Dickens hit a hat-trick, with Ricky Tomlinson (2) and Will Hunter also on target.
Eastfield St James beat 10 men Ryedale Sports Club 6-1 with Nick Hegarty scoring four of the goals.
Danny Kelly and an own goal completed the tally, Martyn Myers scoring Ryedale's consolation.
Ryedale only had a bare 11 players and John Sherwood was injured in the first few minutes, leaving his team a man down.
Hunmanby United enjoyed their first league win of the season, 1-0 at Westover Wasps thanks to a goal by veteran former Blackburn Rovers player Andy Crawford in the first half.
Westover missed several good chances as Hunmanby held out for a memorable victory.
Seamer Sports beat Whitby Fishermen 2-1 in the battle of last season's promoted sides.
The game was goalless until the last 20 minutes when Liam Lowery headed Seamer in front. The Fishermen equalised five minutes from time but Gary Lawton still had time to score a fantastic winner for Seamer.
In the second division, Falsgrave beat Rillington Athletic 6-0 to maintain their promotion ambitions.
Hat-trick man Lee Drydale led the way, with Paul Brady, Richard Tolliday and Danny Marston also on target.
Rosette edged Edgehill Reserves 4-3, while Filey Town Reserves won 3-1 at Newlands Park Reserves thanks to goals by Joe Gage (2) and Jonny Keeble. Scalby lost 3-1 at home in a basement battle against Cayton Corinthians.
