Boro Rangers took another huge step towards the North Riding League Premier Division championship and dealt a big blow to one of their near rivals in the process. The Middlesbrough side humbled a depleted Fishburn Park 6-1, at Broomfield. Co-player-manager Mark Waterfield struck for Rangers’ Whitby hosts, but the leaders responded through braces from Jonny Squires and Paul Blake, with additional strikes from Stu Rose and skipper Nathan Liddell.

Stockton West End’s stunning comeback at fellow title challenger Redcar Town means they appear to be all that stands between Rangers and their championship. It looked a long way away, however, with West End two down after the hour with a man sent off. Josh Butters struck for Redcar, on 32 minutes and Craig Marsay doubled their advantage, early in the second half. Soon after, a sending off saw their odds lengthen. But the visitors rallied as Jake Large netted moments later and Sean O’Brien made it 2-2, with 18 minutes remaining. Michael McLaughlin was the hero in added time as he fired in a last-gasp winner to keep Stockton within eight points of Rangers with a game in hand. Town stay second but having played four games more than Boro.
Second bottom beat bottom as Thornaby Dubliners finally applied their cup form to the league. There was only one team in it as Dubs put five past struggling Nunthorpe Athletic. Gary Mitchell bagged a brace and further goals from Harrison Davies, Gareth Licence and Marcus Laing put the result beyond doubt. Luke Smithyman notched for Nunthorpe.
Third-bottom Staithes Athletic will be looking over their shoulders after a 3-1 defeat at Guisborough United. Paul Young gave Guisborough the lead on 20 minutes and Dean Wilson extended their advantage, ten minutes before half-time.

Wilson got an identical third on the hour to wrap the game up. Staithes rallied in the last 20 minutes and Luke Harrison’s strike, 15 minutes from the end, gave Staithes hope. Further chances came and went but Guisborough held firm for the points with Wilson the main difference between the teams.

A thrilling encounter ended all square as Yarm and Eaglescliffe were held by BEADS. The Middlesbrough side took the lead through Jordan Morgan, on five minutes, only for Anth Brown to level on 17. Yarm went ahead for the first time through Anthony Chisman’s free-kick on the hour, but BEADS secured a point through James Fewster’s goal, ten minutes from time. Dan Hawkins had a chance to win Yarm the game, but he missed an injury time penalty.

In Division One, Whitby Fishermens Society edged another outstanding contest, 4-3, at Stokesley Sports Club Reserves. Karl Storr, Callum Dale, Sam Dowey and Lewis Peel netted for the visitors, despite Stokesley taking a third minute lead through Ryan Bangay. Charlie Brady and Sam Pears netted either side of half-time but it wasn’t enough for Steve Todd’s side.
The semi-finals of the D & G Trophy saw all the second tier’s top four represented. Leaders Bedale slipped past second placed Redcar Athletic Reserves by a goal to nil. As closely fought as their ongoing title battle, only a Dan Baxter strike, on the half hour, separated the sides as Bedale booked a final place.
Third-placed Great Ayton United Royals will provide the opposition for Dale after they won another close contest, this one involving the small matter of seven goals. Mark Shimwell netted twice, with Cale White and Joe Marsay also on target for the Royals. Lakes responded through Joe Canwell, Liam Beadnall and Isam Benandram, but couldn’t avoid a 4-3 defeat.
Unfortunately Redcar Newmarket slipped out of the Yorkshire Old Boys Shield after a 3-0 defeat at Farsley Celtic. The West Yorkshire club’s senior side play at step 3 of the National League System and are currently chasing a place in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division play-offs.
In the North Riding Football League Under 19 division, just two points separate leaders Guisborough Town from second-placed Boro Rangers as both enjoyed six-goal victories, on Sunday. The Priorymen remain out in front and are armed with two games in hand, after their 6-0 victory at Hartlepool. Owen Armstrong blasted four of the goals, with Luke Smithyman and Donny Holdsworth also weighing in.
Rangers put seven past Northallerton, with Conrad McCormick hit a hat-trick. Isaac Walker’s brace and further goals from Lewis Beatson and Liam Small helped Boro to a 7-1 success. Jack Stapley replied for the visitors.
On a day of one-sided games, Thornaby hit bottom club Middleton Rangers 17 times without reply. Dylan Barker fired a double hat-trick, with Sam Candon striking a treble of his own. There were braces for Lewis Heap and Kieran mulroy, while Thomas Dodds, Tyler Hersey, Jake Smith and Ben Mulroy rounded off the scoring for the third-placed side.
Finally, Coulby Newham followed up their 12 past Middleton in midweek, with another 12 to see off Billingham Synthonia. Alex Clark hit five, with Lee Riley netting three. Josh Minchella, Aaron Smith, Joseph Douglas and Jay Parkin also found the net.
