RT Raine Trophy Final
Kader 0 Guisborough Town 7
Guisborough’s talented Under 19s secured a deserved double after seeing off Kader with a destructive second half performance, at Thornaby FC, on Tuesday.
The Priorymen led on 15 minutes through Owen Armstrong, but their Middlesbrough opponents almost hit straight back, but instead struck the crossbar.
As Guisborough went through the gears, Kader keeper Harry Coghlan as forced into a string of top drawer saves. But he was eventually breached twice in quick succession early in the second period when the floodgates finally opened.
Donny Holdsworth and Isaac Carlucci conjured braces, with Kyle Tranter and Louis Hodgson also firing late on.
Boro Rangers 3, Thornaby Dubliners 0.
Rangers earned a treble after seeing off North Riding Premier Division rivals Thornaby Dubliners, at Thornaby FC, on Wednesday.
Stu Rose opened the scoring, after a defensive error, inside two minutes. However, in a hard-fought encounter, it took ten minutes of the second half before Nathan Liddell doubled the Middlesbrough side’s advantage.
Matty McQueeney then sealed victory for Ben Wheatley’s men, 12 minutes from time, with Rangers’ third.
Boro Rangers 2, Fishburn Park 2
(Rangers win 5-4 on pens)
Boro Rangers completed a historic quadruple but only after a dramatic penalty-shoot out victory over Whitby side Fishburn Park, at Redcar Town FC, on Friday.
After a goal-less first half, Paul Blake’s penalty put Ben Wheatley’s charges in front, early in the second period. However, ex-Whitby Town marksman Jake Faichney levelled.
With six minutes remaining, Stu Rose looked to have clinched it for the Middlesbrough men, only for Nathan Storr to claw Park back on terms, three minutes from time. This forced penalty kicks where Andrew Menzies was denied and this proved crucial as the rest were converted, so Rangers won 5-4 on spot kicks.
They now add the MacMillan Bowl to the North Riding County Cup, Wednesday’s Lou Moore Cup success and this season’s North Riding Football League championship in their trophy cabinet.
