OLD Malton looked to bounce back from Saturday’s league cup defeat when they returned to league action against local rivals Brooklyn.

A tie that was dominated from start to finish by the hosts was well contested defensively by the visitors up until the second half.

The best chances that the home side created fell to Josh Bown whose effort was superbly saved by Nick Lock in the Brooklyn goal.

Marcus Godsell’s effort appeared to be going in however his drilled effort hit Bown on the line and fell safely much to the relief of the visitors.

The second half brought out a more clinical display from Old Malton and it wasn’t long before they took the lead. A rush of blood from Brooklyn’s number one saw Danny Fogg upended in the penalty area and Darren Dunning despatched the ball into the corner.

Fogg then found himself on the score sheet with a well taken flick when the ball seemed to be behind him after Marcus Godsell raced down the line and drilled a ferocious ball across the six yard box.

Dunning made it three with another spot kick followed by two routine goals from Godsell and Sam Thackray. Dunning rounded off the rout after he converted two inch perfect free kicks leaving the keeper rooted to the spot. Old Malton hope to continue this fine league form as they maintain their challenge for the York Premier League title.
