KIRKDALE United reached the quarter-finals of the Scarborough and District FA Junior Cup with a convincing 4-0 away victory over Cayton Corinthians Reserves.

The Cayton keeper had to make a smart save to prevent Rob Galtrey giving Kirkdale an early lead.

But in the 22nd minute, Galtrey was on hand to fire home after good work by Alex Croall.

Cayton looked dangerous on the break and it took a good save from Luke Walton to preserve Kirkdale’s lead as the first half drew to a close.

The visitors increased their lead in the 56th minute when Jamie Harper headed home from a Dean Coote corner. Five minutes later Galtrey was brought down in the area to earn United a spot-kick. But Croall’s penalty kick was well saved by the home keeper.

Jonno Wheeldon headed home from another Coote corner to make it 3-0 after 63 minutes. Glen Forrester added the fourth after 76 minutes with the goal of the game to give Kirkdale a well deserved victory.

Jamie Harper was Kirkdale’s man-of-the-match, closely followed by Sean Murray. The quarter-final match will be played on Saturday, January 10, when Kirkdale will entertain Edgehill Reserves, kick-off 1.30pm.

The other third round game between Pickering Knights and Kirkbymoorside Reserves was postponed. The tie will now be played on Saturday, kick-off 1.30pm.

Heslerton were unlucky to lose 4-3 at home to Filey Town Reserves in their quarter-final match. Heslerton took the lead after 20 minutes with a fine goal from Nick Schofield and they went into the break ahead.

But Filey equalised within five minutes of the restart with a goal scored by player/manager Lee Cappleman. Ten minutes later Filey took the lead when Cappleman set-up Joe Gage to score. But Joe Schofield quickly equalised for Heslerton. Schofield then scored a second to put his side into a 3-2 lead with 15 minutes remaining. But Cappleman struck twice in the last ten minutes to put Filey into the semi-finals.

Man-of-the-match winners were Schofield (Heslerton) and Cappleman (Filey Town).

Lingdale United, cup holders for the last three seasons, lost 4-2 away at Newlands Park Reserves.

Lingdale, fielding a depleted side, were hit in the first half by goals from Stewart Bates and Stefan Moon. Anthony Jones pulled one back for Lingdale early in the second half, but Lewis Weller replied for the home side.

A second Jones goal bought the score back to 3-2, but Newlands regained their two-goal advantage with a second Bates effort to secure a place in the semi-finals.
