Kev David’s Scalby side cruised past Sleights Reserves to make progress in the League Trophy, with striker Mike Hartnett in fine form.

Hartnett, a summer acquisition from West Pier, bagged a first-half hat-trick to give his side a 3-0 lead at the break.

Midfielder Carl Townley bundled in from a corner before planting a penalty in the back of the net to make it 5-0 before Hartnett wrapped things up from the edge of the box.

Scalby’s Dan Wedge stood out at left-back, with Hartnett catching the eye in front of goal.


ATHLETICO 2B 4 (Goodwin 2, Day 2) RILLINGTON 6 (Sanderson 3, Penny 2, Dring) aet

Braces from Shaun Goodwin and youngster Tommy Day had Athletico 4-1 up, but Rillington battled back with veteran Craig Sanderson bagging a treble and Damian Penny adding a brace.

A Dring hit the target as well for the away side, who after battling back to 4-4 just before the full-time whistle, registered both before and after half-time in extra-time to seal the victory.


SEAMER RESERVES 1 (A Morris) WEST PIER RESERVES 7 (Speight 4, Reid 2, Crawford)

Rob Speight found the back of the net four times as West Pier Reserves romped to a 7-1 win at Seamer.

Graham Reid got in on the act as he netted a brace before player-manager Dave Crawford wrapped up the scoring.

CAYTON RESERVES 2 (Barber pen, Knowlson) SCALBY RESERVES 2 (Jordan, Hansell)

Cayton Reserves and Scalby Reserves played out a 2-2 draw.

Scalby led through Karl Hansell’s fortuitous effort and when 16-year-old Taylor Jordan doubled their lead after the break it looked like they were heading for victory.
