Old Malton St Mary’s set nicely for derby duel
2:55pm Wednesday 21st August 2013 in Sport
OLD Malton St Mary’s got off to a winning start in their York Minster Engineering League premier division campaign – setting them up nicely for tonight’s cup derby.
St Mary’s, the York FA Saturday Senior Cup holders and league champions in 2011/12, took on last year’s division one winners, Aviva, on Saturday and gave the York side a tough introduction to top-tier football, running out 3-0 victors.
Visitors St Mary’s enjoyed the lion’s share of possession and bagged goals through Scott Preston, Dean Nuttall and Marcus Godsell, their recent signing from neighbours Malton & Norton.
St Mary’s now entertain division one outfit Malton & Norton tonight in the Senior Cup (6.30pm).
Terrington Glory begin their season tonight at home to champions Dunnington, also in the cup (6.30pm), wary of facing a wounded animal.
Dunnington suffered a shock 4-2 defeat at York Railway Institute on Saturday as their title defence got off to a bad start.
They had been unbeaten in the league since a 2-0 loss at Rowntrees in March 2012.
St Mary’s visit Easingwold Town in the league this Saturday and host Copmanthorpe next Wednesday night, while Terrington kick off their premier division campaign this weekend at home to Dringhouses.
Brooklyn, formerly Amotherby & Swinton, see their second string’s season begin next Tuesday with a Reserve Cup tie at home to Wheldrake, while St Mary’s reserves go to St Clement’s reserves.
