League Tables correct as of Sat 24 Nov
Stockton West End are the new leaders of the North Riding Football League Premier Division after defeating previous table toppers Thornaby Dubliners, on Saturday. The top flight’s match of the day saw West End take the derby bragging rights thanks to goals from John Leyshon and Chris Peacock. Liam Southall replied for Dubs.
Super Saturday continued as 3rd met fourth. Another tight encounter saw Redcar Town stop Boro Rangers from taking advantage of Thornaby’s defeat. Defences were on top in a hard-fought encounter that finished 0-0.
At the other end, bottom club BEADS lost out 4-2 at home to Staithes Athletic. Gary Sivills’ men struck through braces for Jordan Cane and Connor Hood. BEADS responded through Connor Hardman and Lee Mahon but they remain seven points adrift of third-bottom Kader.
This despite the Middlesbrough side losing out 2-1 at Bedale. Dan Ball’s third-minute free-kick put the strugglers ahead but Dale rallied as Mark Hemingway levelled just before the half hour and top scorer Colin Anderson netted their winner, two minutes after the hour mark.
New Marske are sandwiched between BEADS and Kader and they lost out 1-0 at home to Whitby side Fishburn Park. Alex McGovern was the lone goalscorer as Park returned to winning ways.
Yarm & Eaglescliffe enjoyed a welcome return to form with Grangetown Boys Club their unfortunate victims. Marshall Thorogood netted twice, with Ravi Mani and Anthony Chisman also on target in a 4-0 victory.
Tees Valley Tigers kept up the pressure on leaders Thirsk Falcons in the NRFL First Division. Tigers cut Falcons’ advantage at the top to four points after just about seeing off Lingdale Village, 2-1. Dominic Ellington’s double did the business for Valley, while Chris Bulmer netted for Lingdale.
Great Ayton United Royals trail the Tigers on goal difference only after their latest win- 3-1 over bottom club Middlesbrough Rovers. Mark Shimwell’s 20-yarder broke the deadlock for Ayton on 20 minutes. Within seconds, Jamie Edwards’ skill created space for him to fire home the hosts’ second. Rovers rallied, however as Stephen Stoker made it 2-1, but Jake Thompson’s tremendous solo run from halfway ended with a crisp finish as the Royals sealed it.
Redcar Athletic Reserves enjoyed a big win at struggling Loftus FC. Jake Lance and Luke Williams scored twice for Athletic, with Joshua Bennett and Owen Clarkson also netting. Danny Jemson responded for second-bottom Loftus.
The division’s other Loftus side fared better, edging a five-goal thriller at Stokesley AFC. Liam Beadnall and Ryan Stairmand struck for Stokesley. Only for Lee Preston’s goal and twin strikes fromman of the match Jordan Rowe to take Loftus Athletic home.
In the Scarborough Junior Cup, Whitby Fishermens missed out on a semi-final spot after losing a 2-0 advantage to fall 3-2 at home to Beckett League leaders Lealholm. This Eskdale derby saw Mark Jones’ men notch through Karl Storr and James Armstrong, only for a disappointing final 25 minutes to prove their undoing.
The Yorkshire Old Boys Shield again brought good returns for the NRFL contingent. Redcar Newmarket saw off Morley Town 4-1 on their travels. The league’s leading scorer Michael Dowse slammed in a hat-trick, with Marcus Wood completed the visitors’ scoring.
St Marys 1947 also eased home in West Yorkshire as Matty Calvert and Ben Cotts helped them to a 2-0 win at Ealandians.
Thornaby & Ingleby Barwick won 2-1 at NRFL Under 19 division leaders Grangetown Boys Club, on Sunday, to advance their own title ambitions. TIBS moved up to second, on goal difference, thanks to goals from Leo Bullock and Jack French. Jordan Crosby notched for the Boys Club.
Redcar Newmarket picked up just their third win of the campaign as Seaton Carew were put to the sword, 2-0. Josh Lyth and Stuart Thomson were on target.
Defending champions Guisborough Town continued their challenging season with a 9-1 battering from Nunthorpe. Charlie Marshall scored for the Priorymen, but Chris Willard hit four and strikes from Nookes, Charlie Fixter, Josh Beach, Shaun Spozio and Josh Davison saw Nunthorpe home comfortably.
