TITLE favourites Kirkdale United dropped from first to fifth as all their rivals won in division two of the newitts.com Beckett League.

While Kirkdale were winning 4-0 at Cayton Corinthians Reserves in round three of the Scarborough & District FA Junior Cup, four other teams leapfrogged them in the table.

United hold games in hand on all the teams above them, but Duncombe Park are the new leaders after a 4-0 home win against Thornton-le-Dale Reserves.

Jack Chadwick netted after 35 minutes and second-half goals were added by Tommy Garbutt, on 50 minutes, Chadwick, on the hour mark, and Nick Allenby, who rounded the visiting keeper after 75 minutes.

James Oldmeadow was Park’s man of the match.

Snainton Reserves are second in the table after a fine 2-1 home win against Union Rovers Reserves.

Several chances were missed by both teams, but James Wilson fired Snainton into the lead midway through the first half.

Phil Smith equalised for Union Rovers after 75 minutes, but Snainton sealed victory thanks to a goal by Nick Ellis five minutes from time.

Centre-back Brendan Wilson-McGarry was Snainton's man of the match, with midfielder Jimmy Halliday taking the Union Rovers plaudits.

Brooklyn 3rds moved up to fourth place with a 6-2 victory over Norton United in a game that was switched to Norton at the last minute as Brooklyn's pitch was deemed unplayable.

Norton played some lovely football to take a two-goal first-half lead, Adam Hymas scoring a superb opener before Danny Dawes netted a contender for goal of the season.

Brooklyn turned it around in the second half, pulling a goal back through Steve Clay on 65 minutes, with a 25-yard shot which took a deflection on its way.

Five minutes later Norton man of the match Jordan Coultard had to go off injured, which helped swing the game in Brooklyn's favour.

Brooklyn bagged five goals in the last 20 minutes.

Clay set up Jordan Horsley for the equaliser, with further goals coming from Richard Dignall, Cameron Swift and two from Clay to complete his hat-trick and win the man of the match award.

Gillamoor are third after a 4-0 win at basement side Settrington Reserves.

Gillamoor took the lead in the second minute with a Ryan Rivis tap-in following a goal kick by the visitors keeper Adam Durrant and a flick on by Nathan Blacklock.

Karl Smith doubled his side's lead with a shot from 12 yards and, just before half-time, Rivis was brought down by the keeper and recovered to score from the spot.

In the second half, Danny Drake hit a post for Gillamoor, while Blacklock had two very good chances before Rivis completed his hat-trick after a move involving keeper Durrant, Patrick Bernstein and Blacklock.

Rivis was man of the match for Gillamoor, but there were also impressive displays by Blacklock, Tony Cass, and Ryan Mintoft in a superb all-round team performance.
