Stockton West End stay six points clear at the top of the North Riding Football League Premier Division, after winning 4-0 at Redcar Town, on Saturday. Jake Large, Chris Peacock, Elliot May and Gary Mitchell found the net.
Boro Rangers remain second after putting six past Stokesley Sports Club, also away from home. Stu Rose blasted a hat-trick, with Dan Lockwood adding two and Jay Honeyman also on target.
Thornaby Dubliners suffered a hammer blow to their title hopes with a 2-1 defeat at St Marys 1947. Richard Dacombe and Lewis Kaid notched for the Saints, while Tom Atkinson responded for Dubs.
Staithes Athletic sprung a surprise with a 3-1 victory over Whitby neighbours Fishburn Park. Connor Hood gave Staithes the lead on 15 minutes with an excellent finish to a well worked move. Ten minutes into the second half, Gary Sivills converted a Ryan Cane cross to double their lead. Substitute Mark Waterfield gave Park hope of a point with an 87th-minute strike but Staithes responded immediately as Rich Playforth wrapped the game up, a minute later.
Yarm & Eaglescliffe’s impressive season continues after a 3-0 win over struggling Kader. The opening goal came when striker Sean Mackin was fouled right on the outside of the area, central to the goal. Mackin side-footed the resulting free-kick into the bottom corner of the Kader ‘keepers net. The crucial second goal arrived just at the right time for Yarm as Kader started to turn the screw. A ball forward from man of the match Cameron Wild found striker Mackin on the right-hand side of the area. Mackin unselfishly rolled the ball across the penalty area for Ian Danby to bundle home his first goal of the season. The game was put to bed in the 77th minute when Jenkinson fired a free-kick home from the edge of the area.
Fortunately for Kader, the three teams below them in the table also lost. Basement side New Marske suffered a 9-1 hammering at Bedale. Dale raced into a three-goal lead inside ten minutes. Ross Hodgson and Col Anderson netted before an own goal gave Dale daylight. Hodgson grabbed a second on the half hour and Anderson made it five just before half-time. That was the end of the scoring until midway through the second half when Hodgson completed his hat-trick. Anderson did likewise with Dan Caisley and Mike Gunnell adding two more late on. Joe Forster struck New Marske’s consolation.
BEADS were unfortunate to find the division’s top goalscorer in top form as Michael Dowse notched a treble for Redcar Newmarket. The Middlesbrough did pull two back themselves in a five-goal thriller.
Grangetown Boys Club were in fine goalscoring form as Guisborough Town Reserves were put to the sword, 6-2. Anthony Barnes was the hat-trick hero, with Callum Hickman netting a brace. Ryan Emmerson hit the other. Owen Armstrong and Marc Kirk notched for Guissy.
The First Division has new leaders as Stokesley Sports Club Reserves took advantage of Great Ayton’s slip. James Brodie-Myers broke the deadlock after half an hour. Plucky bottom club Middlesbrough Rovers held out until 11 minutes from time when James Alderson doubled Stokesley’s advantage. Yousuf Bennett made it three on 84 minutes and Sam Pears completed the scoring, soon after.
Ayton lost out 2-0 at promotion rivals Redcar Athletic Reserves. Jake Lance and Tom Eglington scored the all-important goals.
Thirsk Falcons looked to be cruising to another victory as they raced into a 3-0 advantage at home to Whitby Fishermens Society. However, they weren’t reckoning on the resolve of their visitors as ex-Staithes man James Armstrong netted and former Whitby Town forward Jake Faichney belted in a brace. To make matters worse for the hosts, they had two men sent-off late on as it finished 3-3.
Lingdale Village took the derby bragging rights, coming from 2-1 down to defeat rivals Loftus Athletic 3-2. Chris Morrison had put Athletic ahead, before Lewis Henderson levelled. In a frenetic second half, substitute Jordan Woodall reinstated the Loftus lead but two more from Henderson turned it back in Lingdale’s favour.
There was disappointment for the other Loftus side too. Loftus FC lost out 5-2 at Stokesley Athletic. Stokesley ended a run of four successive defeats thanks to goals from Callum Wilson, Jamie Beadnall, Keir Slatter, Joe Robson and Alex Grange.
There was one game on Sunday, in the NRFL Under 19 Division. Redcar Athletic’s title chase continued as they put Guisborough Town to the sword 6-2. McCorie Carmichael continued his fine scoring form with a hat-trick, while Tom Eglinton, Joe Bennett and Joe McGlade also struck.
