Following their loss to Shaw Lane in the FA Trophy at the weekend, A patchwork Whitby Town side slipped out of the Integro Doodson League Cup, last night against Evo-Stik First Division North East Yorkshiremen Goole.

The loss ended The Blues unbeaten home run. Chris Hardy's men hadn't lost at the Turnbull Ground since their demolition from champions-elect Darlington, in April.

A disorganised Seasiders side conceding inside the first minute. Will Waudby found himself in acres of space, six yards out and he slotted past James Dawson with ease for a shock opener. 

Leigh Hutchinson doubled the visitors' lead when Bobby Johnson played a lovely dinked ball into the Blues' box for him to finish beautifully over the onrushing Dawson from close range.

Hardy introduced Dale Hopson and Dave McTiernan in the second half as Whitby arranged their attacking midfielders. Within seconds, it looked to have paid off as a pinpoint left-wing cross was headed home by Anthony Hume for 2-1, on the hour.

The Blues were given a lifeline when they were awarded a penalty as hume was brought down by Goole 'keeper Jody Barford six minutes from time.

Dale Hopson stepped forward  and converted goal number 12 this season. Hopson rushed to grab the ball from the net, sensing a late win to avoid more penalties after 90 minutes.

However, it was the visitors who claimed an injury time winner. A lightning fast break saw Johnson in acres of space and he finished impressively curling into the top-right corner from just inside the penalty area.

Whitby now look ahead to an away fixture at Coalville Town on Saturday.
