There were shocks in the Lou Moore Trophy as the North Riding League Premier’s top two were both dumped out. Stockton West End lost a thriller 4-3 at Bedale. Jack Campbell put West End ahead inside five minutes, but Jack Stapley quickly levelled for Dale. Callum Fletcher put the visitors ahead for the first time, but John Leyshon levelled before half-time. Campbell struck his second, ten minutes into the second half, but Bedale were back on terms at 3-3 through Scott McNichol’s 79th minute penalty. Dale then won it in the final minute with Sam Vernall’s strike sending them through.
They’ll face in-form Grangetown Boys Club, who stunned second-placed Boro Rangers on penalties. Dan Lockwood’s goal for Rangers was cancelled out and the Boys Club went on to win 4-3 on penalties. James Dillon took Boro’s man of the match award.
Attention was on the bottom half of the NRFL Premier then as Stokesley Sports Club lost out 2-1. Paul Vaughan and Ben Larkin netted for their hosts St Marys 1947, cancelling out Joel Gordon’s spectacular 20-yard bicycle kick.
BEADS secured what could be a crucial point at Redcar Town, to go two points clear of second bottom Stokesley. McGill’s goal cancelled out Ryan Bennions strike for Town.
Thornaby Dubliners kept their winning run going with a crushing 5-1 victory over Staithes Athletic. While Dubs were only one up at half time, they took control after the break. Tom Atkinson and Arron Scott both bagged braces, with Charlie Raby netting the other. Staithes’ consolation came from Connor Hood’s penalty.
Whitby side Fishburn Park edged past Redcar Newmarket at their Broomfield home, 1-0. Teenager Callum Halley scoring the goal.
In Division One, Stokesley Reserves go top and secure a top two finish after a 2-0 win over Whitby Fishermens. A tenth minute James Brodie-Myers penalty gave Steve Todd’s men the lead, after a foul on Yousuf Bennett. The battle stretched until stoppage time when Matty Lazenby grabbed the hosts’ second. It was revealed Lazenby’s goal was the club’s 100th since their inception, 18 months ago.
Thirsk Falcons in second also guaranteed a top two finish as they beat Redcar Athletic Reserves 3-2. This despite Redcar strikes from Jake Lance and Ross Brogan.
The division’s early kick off saw Middlesbrough Rovers avoid the wooden spoon with a 2-1 victory at home to Stokesley AFC.

However, Adam O’Brien struck ten minutes from time as Rovers enjoyed a famous victory.
