Redcar Newmarket were the big winners as the Lou Moore Trophy got underway on Saturday. The competition for top tier North Riding Football League sides saw Newmarket thump Stokesley Sports Club 9-0. Michael Dowse lashed in a hat-trick, with Marcus Wood, Daniel McCauley, Adam Hartnett, Ryan Hodgson, Jamie Graham and Jon Quinn also on target.
The closest clash came at Thornaby Dubliners as Whitby-based Fishburn Park held the hosts to a 0-0 stalemate. However, Dubs edged the resulting penalty shoot-out to scrape through 5-4 on spot kicks. Sam Richardson the unlucky man to clip over the bar for Park- ex-Whitby Town midfielder Charlie Raby netted Thornaby’s winner.
Stockton West End beat Guisborough Town Reserves 6-1 for the second time in as many weeks. Man of the match Gary Mitchell blasted a hat-trick, with Sean O’Brien, Chris Peacock and an own goal completing the Stockton scoring. Jake Marron replied for the visitors.
In a Tees derby, Boro Rangers won 2-0 at home to St Marys 1947. Lone striker Dan Lockwood was the hero with both goals. Robbie Keenan took the man of the match award.
Grangetown came from behind to win by the odd goal in three at Kader. James Hunter and Anthony Jones found the net for the Boys Club, after Carl Williams had earlier put their Middlesbrough hosts ahead, inside 16 minutes.
BEADS had a good win, 4-1 at rivals New Marske. Robson Jinks netted twice, with Dean Lisle and Alex Brown adding further strikes. Liam Fox netted New Marske’s consolation.
Bedale kept up their good run with a fourth successive victory. All three of their goals at Redcar Town came in the second half. Jonny Rayner opened the scoring, from the penalty spot, eight minutes after the interval. Matt Goodwin doubled their advantage, fifteen minutes from time, with Michael Gunnell adding gloss to the scoreline, near the end.
Yarm & Eaglescliffe also won 3-0, at home to Staithes Athletic. Anthony Chisman, Cameron Wild and Jack Dalton did the damage.
Great Ayton United Royals are the new leaders of the North Riding Football League First Division. Karl Wellard’s solitary goal, just after the hour, was enough to see off Loftus Athletic as the Royals leapfrogged Thirsk Falcons and Tees Valley Tigers, who didn’t play.
Stokesley Sports Club Reserves also jumped over the previous top two to go second after a much more convincing victory, over Loftus FC. Steve Todd’s men raced into a 4-0 half-time lead thanks to Isaac Walker’s brace, Chris Moore’s strike and a goal from former Middlesbrough striker Andy Campbell. Sports Club’s second string increased their advantage to six by the end, with James Brodie-Myers rattling in two of his own, including a penalty.
Redcar Athletic stay fifth after a convincing 7-2 win over Stokesley AFC. McCorie Carmichael fired in a hat-trick, with Jack Randall, Lewis Mitchell, Jake Lance, and Tom Eglinton also on target. Stokesley hit back through Jack Monroe and Ste Drinkwater.
Whitby Fishermens returned to winning ways with a 6-1 thumping of Lingdale Village. Man of the match Karl Storr hit two for the Lythe side, with Jake Faichney also bagging a brace and additional strikes from Jord Purvis and James Armstrong. Reece Kelly pulled one back for Village.
There was just one game in the Under 19 Division, on Sunday. It was a 5-2 win for Redcar Athletic at Seaton Carew. Sam Osborne and Aaron Flounder netted for the home side, while Jake Lance fired four for Redcar, Ben Wardell hit the other.
There were a couple of County Cup ties, involving NRFL sides, with mixed results. Despite Jack French and Aiden Middleton’s goals, Thornaby & Ingleby Barwick were thumped 6-2 at home by Scarborough Athletic Under 19s.
There was better news for Redcar Newmarket, however, who defeated Dringhouses 4-2. Leon Bellerby struck twice, with Mark Graham and Joshua Lyth making sure of progress.
