BROOKLYN Under-15s breezed into the semi-finals of the Scarborough & District FA U15s Minor Cup with a romp at home to Hunmanby Juniors.

The visitors, fifth in the Scarborough & District League, could not field a full team and York Minor League outfit Brooklyn took advantage to bang in 15 goals without reply.

The deadlock was broken early on as Ethan Chan unleashed an unstoppable shot high into the net and eight more goals followed in the first half, Luke Balderson ending with four, Tom Walsh three and Tom Mooring one from the penalty spot.

Forward Balderson notched another two before Brooklyn’s defenders were encouraged to join the strikers. Left-back James Allan dribbled passed two men and curled a cracker high into the top right corner before centre-backs Joe Tetlow (2) and Andrew Tiffany added to the tally.

Brooklyn U16s also progressed in the cup thanks to a 6-3 win over a battling York RI.

Nick Lock got things off to a flying start by capitalising on a loose ball in the box and constant pressure resulted in a second, an own goal from an Iain Kerr corner.

RI pulled one back with a cracker and, after Kerr bagged a penalty having been upended in the box, the York side notched another following a defensive slip.

A good interchange between Harvey Townley and Kerr resulted in the latter sliding home his second, before Townley curled a half-cleared ball into the top corner.

Man-of-the-match Kerr then completed a hat-trick from the spot after Townley was fouled, before the visitors scored a late consolation.

Kirkbymoorside U14s were knocked out of the North Riding U14s Cup 6-1 by Polton Allstars Acadamy but not without a fight against a side managed by ex-Manchester City and Middlesbrough midfielder Jamie Pollock.

A penalty by Dan Ward was all Kirkby had to show for a fantastic team performance.

Old Malton Blues U13s breezed through the second round of the North Riding U13s Cup with a 5-0 win at Poppleton.

Poppleton missed a golden early chance but it was Old Malton who then took charge with Lysander Jones on the wing working hard to get the ball forward.

Patryk Jadczuk volleyed the ball into the box for Will Scholefield to head home the opener before half-time, and the second half belonged to the Blues.

Scholefield finished well from a tight angle, the hard-working Von Sumsard set up Josh Lee to fire home from outside the box, Jadczuk got his reward thanks to a great pass from Lewis Pople, and Pople completed the haul.

Lorcan Tobin and Sam Nendick covered well at the back to cut out any attempts from the hosts.

Two goals from the impressive Rosie Smith wrapped up a 5-0 win for Brooklyn U12s Girls at Goole.

Brooklyn had slowly got on top and were two up at half-time through Florence Pegrum and player-of-the-match Emily Cooper.

In the second half, Brooklyn played some of their best football of the season with Millie Crick scoring the third goal before Smith’s double. The scoreline could have been greater but for a fine performance from the Goole goalkeeper.

Billy Chapman was man of the match after his best performance of the season - with excellent saves and distribution from the back - helped Brooklyn U12s to beat York RI Cosmos in the York & Ryedale Mitchell League. Brooklyn started very well and took the lead via a free-kick by Thomas Davies into the top corner. Davies then got a fine second after a break down the right involving Logan Clive and James Barker. Brooklyn hit the woodwork and forced saves but RI pulled a goal back when Ben Evans headed into his own net from a free-kick. Lewis Saunders made it 3-1 with a fine left-foot strike and good pressure paid off with Saunders’s second.

BROOKLYN Under-11s Lions came from behind three times to win 4-3 at Easingwold Town in a thrilling York Minor League top-of-the-table clash.

A breakaway out of defence by Jay Jackson set up the match-winner - and the game’s best goal - scored by Lucas Croft, and, after the final whistle, the whole Brooklyn team were named the joint men of the man such was their team performance.

Two good saves from goalkeeper Andy Cook had kept the scoresheet blank early on but eventually the hosts did manage to go in front, and they ended the first half with three goals.

However, Brooklyn equalised each time - twice via corners which deflected in off Easingwold defenders and, after half-time, when Matthew Lock set up Ethan Oakes.

Then came Croft’s decider to take the three points back to Ryedale.

Old Malton U11s survived a late scare in a 1-1 share-all at Rawcliffe as the home team had a late winner disallowed for offside.

Malton had begun with only nine players due to traffic problems on the way to the game but they were soon up to a full complement and they were the better team in the first half, even if the game was not great viewing due to the poor conditions.

They scored when Josh Mann found space in the box and finished well at the second attempt after his first effort had been blocked.

Malton’s defence of Joe Judge, Mert Kir and Dan Hill played well and, with goalkeeper Seb Allan-Swallow also giving a great man-of-the-match display, it looked like they would hold on, but Rawcliffe’s second-half pressure paid dividends with an equaliser.
