There was no bad luck on Friday the 13th for Stockton West End who took the Durham FA Minor Trophy 5-1 over Winlaton Vulcans. 

Ben Turner’s brace, plus goals from John Leyshon, Jake Large and Carl Williams saw West End home against their Northern Alliance opponents.

Saturday’s action saw Redcar Town cut Boro Rangers’ lead at the top of the North Riding Football League Premier Division to one point. Town have played five games more than their rivals, but nevertheless enjoyed a comfortable victory, over neighbours Redcar Newmarket. Andrew Porritt opened the scoring, for the second placed side, just after the half hour. Jamie Lee doubled their advantage, seconds after the hour mark, with Porritt adding his second and Town’s third, within four minutes. Josh O’Donovan then put the icing on the cake, with a fourth, seven minutes from time.
Thornaby Dubliners took a big step towards safety and dealt a blow to one of their rivals in the bottom half of the table, with victory over Staithes Athletic. The Dubliners led through Marcus Laing, with the in-form Gary Mitchell notching twice, before Russ Spence added gloss at 4-0.
A Whitby derby in the MacMillan Bowl saw Premier defeat First Division as Fishburn Park saw off Whitby Fishermens Society, 3-0. The Broomfield Park club put on a strong display with ex-Whitby Town striker Jake Faichney firing a brace. Andrew Menzies added the third as Park earned a home tie with Thornaby Dubliners in the semi-finals.
The league leaders eased into the last four in an all-Premier tie at Yarm. St Marys 1947 were put to the sword, 4-0, by a rampant Boro Rangers. Goals from Jamie Bellamy, Matty McQueeney, Jonny Squires and man of the match Paul Blake separated the sides.
It’ll be the battle of the top sides as First Division leaders Bedale booked a trip to Rangers with a dramatic 3-2 win over promotion rivals Redcar Athletic Reserves. Joe Martin put Dale in front, within three minutes, only for McCorie Carmichael to level, from the penalty spot, on five. Dan Baxter then put the hosts back ahead, in the 20th minute. However, Athletic began the second half in determined mood and promptly levelled within four minutes of the restart, Jake Lance with the goal. Baxter and his club were not to be denied, though, and he duly fired home the winner, two minutes from time.
Lingdale Village and Stokesley Sports Club Reserves also fought out a five-goal thriller, in the NRFL First Division. Kieran Campbell and Kalab Johans struck for Stokesley, only for Andrew Smith to net a brace and Bri Combellack to complete the scoring for the visitors as they leapfrogged their hosts to go third from bottom.
Sunday saw Boro Rangers miss the chance to go ahead of Guisborough Town at the top of the NRFL Under 19 Division. Rangers lost out 2-0 at home to third placed Thornaby, after goals from Sam Candlin and man of the match Ben Mulroy.

Kader stay hot on Thornaby’s heels after a 3-1 victory over Northallerton Town. Lucas Brown, Michael Hoyland and Jake Symonds found the net for the Middlesbrough side while ‘allerton replied through Saul Bamber-Lister.  

Redcar Newmarket edged a close clash with Hartlepool FC, 3-2. Chris Payne, Mark Graham and Casey Buckton netted for Newmarket, with Adam Cowan and Callum Shackleton pouncing for Pools.
