3:56pm Wednesday 9th October 2013 in Sport
PLAYER-MANAGER Lee Mitchell’s 30-yard wonder strike proved the difference as reigning newitts.com Beckett League champions Sinnington beat local rivals Kirkbymoorside reserves.
Both teams went into the match with 100 per cent records but the Sinners secured a second-half victory with Paul Harland taking the man-of-the-match honours and fellow midfielder Jack Dowson impressing most for Kirkby.
Union Rovers, meanwhile, defeated Duncombe Park 6-1 with the latter preparing for their charity game in memory of former player Liam Osgunshakin.
Paul Holder hit a second successive hat-trick for Rovers with Dean Sleightholme (2) and substitute Dan Simpson also on target, while Simon Cook got Duncombe’s consolation.
The man-of-the-match award went to Grant Stephens and Tommy Garbutt was the pick of the Park players.
A Tim Hodgson penalty for Rosedale ensured they shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw against Bagby & Balk, who forged in front courtesy of Dan George.
Bagby goalkeeper Jonathan Kendall and Rosedale midfielder Ben Adamson were the man-of-the-match winners.
Centre-back Tom Skelton, who was later named man of the match, gave Gillamoor the lead in a 3-1 win over Ryedale after Kieron Spry had hit the bar from a corner.
Sam Knowles and Spry went on to extend Moor’s lead before Matty Gardner replied for Ryedale, whose Ben Lealman shone.
In the second division, top two Easingwold Town 3rds and Wombleton Wanderers both dropped their first points of the season.
Leaders Easingwold went down 4-1 to Union Rovers 2nds, who had Richard Abbey, Paul Downes, Callum Dent and Chris Hodgson on their scoresheet and right-back Zac Holmes in man-of-the-match form.
The visitors’ star man Clive McGuiness reduced the deficit.
Wombleton were held to a 0-0 draw by Heslerton reserves, whose player/manager and goalkeeper Michael Norman shared the man-of-the-match accolade with the away team’s Paul Grayson and Luke McLaren.
Norman made several superb saves and Luke Tateson also hit the bar for Wombleton, whose cause was not helped by Michael Ellis’ sending off.
A Martin Karetnyk brace, along with Tom Allenby’s penalty and an effort from man-of-the-match Josh Hall, saw Snainton reserves overcome Norton United 4-1.
Right-back Lee Thompson was Norton’s top performer and netted his team’s goal.
Jarred Copple’s first-half strike settled Settrington’s game with Rillington Athletic reserves.
Centre-back Richard Cass was man of the match with defender Aidan Smith standing out for Athletic.
Man-of-the-match Graham Atkinson, meanwhile, was the lone marksman in Kirkdale United’s 1-0 triumph at Thornton-le-Dale reserves.
