Football: Cup kings Brooklyn eye silverware after moving into last eight
3:10pm Wednesday 4th September 2013 in Sport
THE football season may still be in its infancy but Brooklyn have already got a faint whiff of silverware.
The Ryedale side, formerly called Amotherby and Swinton before their link-up with the Malton-based junior club, have reached the last eight of the York Minster Engineering League Senior Cup.
Division One outfit Brooklyn overcame an in-form Hemingbrough 4-1, battling back when their visitors took a 1-0 lead midway through the first half.
The goal shocked Brooklyn into life, with Andrew Metcalfe firing in an equaliser before Chris Seager’s deflected header edged the hosts in front going into the break.
Brooklyn dominated the second-half with Max Fraser grabbing his first goal for the club to give the hosts a two-goal advantage before Mikey Brown rounded the ’keeper to confirm a resounding victory.
Manager Matty Hood said: “I was disappointed that we had to chase the game but once we put ourselves 2-1 up there was only one side in it. A much improved performance from last week, however I feel we still have a couple more gears to go through.”
Brooklyn’s Division One campaign kicks off on Saturday when they play host to Hamilton Panthers.
