Stockton West End stay five points clear at the top of the North Riding League Premier Division after their latest victory. Grangetown Boys Club were brushed aside 5-1, despite them leading 1-0 at half-time through Conor Bentley. Ben Hamilton equalised, then skipper Will Botham made it 2-1. Chris Peacock added a third, with further goals from Michael McLaughlin and Peter Caveney.
Thornaby Dubliners stay in touch, in second after a single-goal win at Redcar Town. Tom Atkinson’s 19th strike of the season made the difference as Dubs took the honours.
Boro Rangers thumped Guisborough Town Reserves to stay third, six points behind the leaders, with a game in hand and a formidable goal difference. Richard Cook and Stu Rose bagged a brace each in a 7-0 win, which also saw Dan Lockwood, Lewis Colley and Joel Guy find the net. Matt McQueeney took Rangers’ man of the match award.
Fourth-placed Yarm & Eaglescliffe lost out to resurgent Redcar Newmarket, who have pulled themselves into the top half of the table after a dismal start to the season. Anthony Jefferson and 28-goal Michael Dowse notched for Newmarket, with Yarm responding with an own goal.
Fishburn Park continued their great recent run with a 4-1 thumping of second-bottom BEADS. The Whitby side’s third straight win started with Nathan Storr’s deflected effort looping up and over the BEADS keeper and into the net. An own goal doubled their advantage, with Sam Richardson’s 25-yard howitzer making it 3-0 at the break. After being reduced to ten men, the Middlesbrough visitors were hit again as Dan Brown slotted home. They did nick a late consolation through Karl Liley, but Park march on.
Bottom club New Marske struck through Ben Marshall, against St Marys 1947. However, Ryan Todd’s hat-trick saw Saints earn a 3-1 win on their travels.
Stokesley Sports Club v Kader was a treat for the neutrals as fourth bottom and fifth bottom served up an eleven-goal thriller. Liam Beadnall struck for Stokesley, but Kader were aided by a Carl Williams hat-trick and twin Dan Ball strikes, including a spectacular free-kick as they raced into a 5-1 lead, with just 15 minutes remaining. However, Stokesley roared back and made a real game of it with a flurry of late goals. Beadnall struck a second, with Marcus Allen, Aaron Smith and Tom Markman all firing, but Kader edged home 6-5, thanks to Luke Smithyman’s winner.
Bedale almost netted as many single-handedly at home to Staithes Athletic. Dale were four up inside half an hour, including two goals for David Cooke. Ross Hodgson and Chris Hope weighed in, with more strikes to follow in the second half. Hodgson hit his second within four minutes of the restart and leading scorer Col Anderson made it six on the hour. By the time he tucked away his second, six minutes from time, Joe Martin had netted two in eight minutes and Bedale finished with nine.
In Division One, two of the promotion chasers met on Teesside. Newcomers Tees Valley Tigers were held 1-1 by Great Ayton United Royals, with just a single goal separating the two sides, in the table, who are second and third respectively. Andy Parkin parted the Ayton defence for Tigers’ goal. Joe Marsay levelled for Royals ten minutes from time.
The other tie in the second tier saw Lingdale Village take the derby bragging rights, 4-2, over Loftus FC. Rob Bennett scored twice for Village, with Nathan Calvert and Lewis Henderson also on target for the home side. Robbie Haw and Josh Elliott notched for Loftus.
There was also disappointment for the other Loftus side, Athletic, who went down 4-2 on penalties against Scarborough Second Division Edgehill Reserves. The sides were earlier locked 3-3, after 90 minutes, in this Scarborough Junior Cup Quarter Final. Athletic’s goals came from Adam Winspear, Craig Morrison and substitute Brandon Harris.
It’s as you were in the Under 19 Division as both the top two won, on Sunday. Leaders Grangetown defeated Seaton Carew 6-3. After an excellent game of football, Grangetown came out on top against a much-improved Seaton Carew. Grangetown goals came from Charlie Millard, Lewis Williams, Owen Wilson, Jay Lai, Matthew Green and Jordan Crosby. Ryan Robinson, Joe Parkin and Aaron Flounders found the net for second-bottom Seaton.
Thornaby and Ingleby Barwick in second took out third placed Redcar Athletic by a crucial Connor Jinks goal to nil. They continue to trail Grangetown by six points with four games in hand.
At the other end, Coulby Newham stay bottom after a 6-0 reverse at home to Nunthorpe. Dylan Lewis lashed in two, with Sam Ogorman, Chris Willard, Layton Cornfield and an own goal rounding off the scoring.
Guisborough’s nightmare season continues with a 4-1 defeat at Redcar Newmarket. Newmarket netted through Leon Bellerby’s brace and further goals from Curtis Holmes and Stu Thomson. Isaac Walker replied.
