North Riding Senior Cup First Round
Boro Rangers 0-3 Redcar Athletic
Stokesley Sports Club 1-2 Guisborough Town
Sadly North Riding Football League participation in the county’s Senior Cup ceased in midweek after defeats by Northern League opponents.
Boro Rangers lost out 3-0 at home to Division Two Redcar Athletic and were left to rue missed first half chances. They were just a single goal down at the break but two spectacular second half strikes saw them tumble out of the competition as Steve Connolly’s men progressed.
Elsewhere, in a marked contrast to their 9-0 FA Vase humbling, Stokesley Sports Club gave First Division Guisborough Town a real scare, at Broughton Road. The Priorymen led 1-0 at the interval and had already hitthe woodwork twice. They added a second, but Marcus Allen pulled one back for Chris Lax’s side who threw everything forward at the end, but to no avail.
