The dream is over for the North Riding Football League Representative Team. After winning the FA Inter League Cup, with victory over the York League, at Bramall Lane, last season, Ben Wheatley’s men qualified to represent England in the UEFA Regions Cup. They remained unbeaten throughout the group stage but successive 2-2 draws and a 1-1 yesterday against the Irish representatives Region 2, wasn’t enough to go further in the competition. Boro Rangers’ Robbie Keenan had put the NRFL ahead after 17 minutes and at half-time, they were top of Group C. However, Shane Ryan’s leveller, three minutes from time, saw them drop to 3rd and sadly an early exit from Romania, despite three tremendous battling performances.
In the NRFL Premier Division, Stockton West End returned to form and went top of the league after defeating fellow title chasers Yarm and Eaglescliffe, 3-0. Gareth Poole, Elliot Peacock and the prolific Jake Large grabbed the goals for last season’s second-placed side.
Grangetown Boys Club are still in touch with the top four and they showed their credentials by crushing Staithes Athletic. Boys Club smashed in six, with Anthony Barnes leading the way with four of his own. Dan Crawford and Jon Stott added gloss, with Connor Hood replying for Staithes.
Fishburn Park are also in with a shout after continuing their winning run. The Whitby side defeated Stokesley Sports Club, 5-2, thanks to Dan Brown’s brace, plus strikes from Al McGovern, Jimmy Organ-Simpson and Callum Halley. Sports Club boss Chris Lax was left fuming after his side led 2-0 for the first hour of the game, thanks to goals from Reece Allison and Marcus Allen, only to throw things away, later on.
Guisborough Town Reserves are settling into the season nicely and enjoyed a 4-0 win over Kadar. Lewis Reeve netted a brace, with youngster Owen Armstrong also scoring and an own goal completing the rout.
St Marys 1947 returned to winning ways against newly-promoted New Marske. Ben Cotts and Paul Vaughan were their usual reliable selves in front of goal to inspire a 2-0 success for the Saints.
In the second tier, Thirsk Falcons continue their onslaught, with a relentless 10-2 thumping of Lingdale Village. Ryan McKendry blasted in five, with Ben Calvert netting a hat-trick and Callum Manson adding a brace of his own. Village replied through Bri Combellack and Ryan Cane.
Stokesley Reserves also made it four in four, but had a much tougher task on their hands, after winning by the odd goal in seven, at Great Ayton. Charlie Brady put Steve Todd’s Stokesley side in front, inside seven minutes. Jamie Lidster’s cross was then deflected in to double their advantage before the half hour. Former Middlesbrough striker Andy Campbell showed his quality with a sublime chip for 3-0 but the match turned on Matty Lazenby’s sending off, with the resulting free-kick bringing a favourable ricochet from Lee Dodds’ shot. Despite this, James Brodie-Myers looked to have headed the visitors to victory, six minutes into the second half. But further Ayton goals from Thomas Nicholls and Jamie Edwards in the final half hour saw Todd’s men hanging on at the finish.
Tees Valley Tigers are third after their 6-3 win over another new side Loftus FC. Isam Benomram fired a hat-trick, with Zak Shelmani, Paul Banks and Florian rounding off the Tigers tally. Loftus replied through Adam Thomas, Dean Sanderson and James Twaddle.
Whitby Fishermens are fourth after James Armstrong celebrated a first hat-trick for his new club. Jake Faichney, a summer signing from Fishburn Park, bagged a brace and Jord Purvis kept up his good scoring run with the sixth. Visitors Stokesley AFC netted through Michael Gill and Robert Molloy.
A well-contested affair, that boiled over at the end, saw Loftus Athletic defeat Middlesbrough Rovers, 6-4. Jordan Rowe blasted a hat-trick, Kieran Brundle and Daniel Jemson completed the Athletic scoring. New boys Rovers are still looking for their first points of the campaign, but will be buoyed by Dan O’Brien’s brace and further strikes from Adam Quinn and Shaun Clarke.
A fiercely-competitive seven-goal thriller saw NRFL Under 19 Division leaders Grangetown edge home in the dying minutes, when striker Ben Martin netted his fourth goal of this derby game. Visitors Redcar Newmarket were quickly into their stride and were two up within 15 minutes, thanks to Michael Urban and Tom Keogh’s goals. Grangetown were then awarded a penalty which Martin calmly converted, he then added his and the Boys Club’s second, moments later, winning the race to a through ball and lobbing home. Newmarket went ahead again with a stunning 30-yard James Waldon drive, but Grangetown were not to be denied and after hitting the woodwork three times, Martin headed home his third, before clinching the points, almost on the final whistle.
Second-placed Thornaby and Ingleby Barwick are also 100% after successive victories, the latest being 3-0 at Redcar Newmarket. T.I.B.S opened the scoring through Koikoi Sakouvogui, with Nathan Bradshaw’s brace putting the result beyond doubt.
