Scott Simpson sends Slingsby through in Scarborough & District FA Junior Cup
4:02pm Wednesday 9th October 2013 in Sport
SCOTT SIMPSON was the hero as Slingsby, of the newitts.com Beckett League second division, caused an upset in the Scarborough & District FA Junior Cup by beating first division opposition Heslerton 3-2 in a cracking game.
Simpson twice put Slingsby ahead either side of a Josh Beach equaliser for the visitors, his second goal being a penalty just before half-time.
Sam Rackham levelled matters again but a second Simpson penalty midway through the second half sent his team into the last 16 of the competition for the first time for many years. This was Simpson’s third successive hat-trick and he shared his side’s man-of-the-match award with left-back Joe Brown. Goalkeeper Gareth Drive was Heslerton’s top performer.
Filey Town reserves edged Rillington Athletic 1-0 thanks to a superb first-half header by Lee Plant.
Jordan Lee in goal was Rillington’s man of the match.
Pickering Knights fell 4-1 at home to Falsgrave reserves.
Theo James put Falsgrave ahead, Jack Connelly equalising 10 minutes before half time. Falsgrave got on top after the break, with the Knights having no substitutes to call on, and scored further goals through Danny Gough, Clayton Walker and Zak Hansen.
Steven Temple and Andrew Spittlehouse stood out for the Knights.
Sleights reserves moved into the third round thanks to a 4-1 home win over Cayton Corinthians reserves. Lee Brennan opened the scoring for Sleights in the first half and younger brother Michael, the man of the match, hit a second half hat-trick after Craig Garton had equalised for Cayton after 55 minutes. Ashley Durham was Cayton’s star man.
Twelve other second round ties will be played this Saturday, with the United Sports Bar versus Cayton Corinthians fixture to be played on October 19.
