There was one Premier Division clash on Friday night when Redcar Town left it late to grab a point at home to Yarm & Eaglescliffe. Sean Mackin drilled home low, midway through the first half, to put the visitors in front. They held that advantage until the second minute of injury time when Mike Algie broke Yarm hearts with a last-gasp leveller. 
There was only one match in the second tier, on Saturday, as the bottom two met and Loftus FC picked up their first-ever NRFL points. Goals from George Jackson, Kain Jemson and a brace from Dan Stonehouse secured a historic win for the East Cleveland newcomers. Hosts Middlesbrough Rovers responded through Connor Saunders’ brace. 
The MacMillan Bowl kicked off at the weekend, with the big upset coming at the King George V Ground. Hosts Guisborough Town Reserves lost out 4-3, at home to First Division Lingdale Village, despite the away side finishing with ten men. Goals from Peter Dixon, Anth Cox, Chris Bulmer and man of the match Lee Struwig rendered Village victorious.
Fishburn Park bounced back from their North Riding Senior Cup exit midweek with a 7-2 thumping of Stokesley AFC. Sam Richardson blasted four goals, with Jimmy Organ-Simpson, Adam Warrilow and co-manager Mark Waterfield also on target for the Whitby side. Lewis Wilson and Liam Beadnall replied for the away outfit.
Their town rivals Stokesley Sports Club Reserves also lost out to higher-ranked opponents in Bedale, after two injury time sucker punches. Col Anderson put Dale ahead inside six minutes, but a three-goal blitz in seven minutes, just before the break, sent Stokesley in 3-1 up at the interval. Jordan Smith scored two in as many minutes and Yousuf Bennett then netted seconds before half-time. David Cooke reduced the arrears, within eight minutes of the restart, but James Brodie-Myers then slotted away a 65th minute penalty to extend the away side’s lead to 4-2. Youngster Jack Stapley netted a third for Bedale, who drew level when Dan Caisley struck seven minutes from time. Anderson hit his second to put the hosts ahead on 91 minutes and Joe Martin made sure soon after.
Stokesley’s first team fared better as they edged out Redcar Athletic Reserves on penalties. Marcus Allen netted twice for Chris Lax’s men with Charlie Bingley also on target. Thomas Eglinton scored twice for Redcar, with James Ascoughs notching too. The resulting shoot out saw Stokesley advance 3-1 after two crucial Liam Morrison saves.
Boro Rangers kept up their impressive run with a 2-0 victory as Premier Division top beat bottom, at the Herlingshaw Centre. Visitors BEADS were left to rue a missed fifth minute penalty, as Phil Horsman put Rangers ahead around the half hour. Dan Lockwood then put the result beyond doubt.
Grangetown Boys Club inflicted Thirsk Falcons’ first defeat of the season in the other tie. The Premier side, who booked a trip to Evo-Stik League top tier Whitby Town, in midweek, were reduced to ten men, inside ten minutes, when Lee Dooley was dismissed for deliberate handball. The resulting penalty was missed but Falcons did go ahead after the break, but strikes from Ben Martin and Conor Bentley saw the hosts home. 
Meanwhile, Redcar Newmarket toasted success in the Yorkshire Old Boys Shield, winning 3-1 against Leeds side Beeston St Anthonys. Jamie Graham, Lee Jefferson and the NRFL Premier’s top scorer Michael Dowse netted for Newmarket.
On Sunday, Grangetown’s Under 19s continued their onslaught in that division as Nunthorpe were put to the sword, 5-2, however the match was abandoned .
The Boys Club’s nearest rivals, Redcar Athletic, stay on their heels, however, after a 4-0 victory over Seaton Carew. Sam Raine, Joe McGlade, Alex Smith and Josh Bennett with the goals.
Elsewhere, the division’s other Redcar side, Redcar Newmarket, celebrated their first victory of the season, 3-1 at Coulby Newham. Curtis Holmes, Josh Lyth and James Waldon notched for Newmarket, while Coulby’s consolation came from Michael Hoyland.
