Only one game survived the weather, on Saturday, where Guisborough United and Redcar Newmarket produced five goals, at Lye Hills School, in the Lou Moore Trophy.
Despite the free scoring, it should be the groundsman/caretaker who gets the plaudits as no fewer than 12 other matches involving North Riding Football League sides were postponed.
It was a storming start from the NRFL Premier’s sixth-placed club as United raced into a 3-0 lead, inside 20 minutes. Dean Wilson’s quickfire brace put Newmarket on the back foot quickly. Morgan Corner then stunned them with a third before the midway point of the first half. However, the fourth-placed hosts gave themselves a lifeline, ten minutes before the interval, as leading goalscorer Michael Dowse despatched his 17th of the season, from the penalty spot.
The second half was a more even affair and Andy Tullock’s strike reduced the arrears further, at 3-2, but the away side held out to make the second round draw.
Unfortunately for Newmarket, their Under 19s were also on the losing side, in the only game, on Sunday.
This time, their visitors were Hartlepool Pools Youth, who leapfrog their local rivals Hartlepool FC, into eighth spot. Pools’ first goal came from a fantastic solo Lewis Rattigan run. He went through several defenders before finishing low past goalkeeper Tom Beeforth.
Newmarket equalised soon after half time, however, when Leon Bellerby struck, but Rattigan completed his brace, midway through the second half, when he beat the offside trap to again calmly stroke the ball past Beeforth.
Chances continued at both ends, with Callum Brackstone performing well in the visitors’ goal to keep them ahead, before Harrison Olive secured the Pools win with a well-struck 18-yard volley, into the roof of the net.
