FA Cup Action For Yorkshire Coast Sides

Scarborough Athletic

Whitby Town and Scarborough Athletic will both be in Monday's FA Cup Second Qualifying Round draw but had differing fortunes in football's oldest competition, on Saturday.

The Blues followed up Tuesday's derby success with a 4-0 win at Widnes, from the division below. However, the hosts had chances of their own, hitting the woodwork and forcing saves from goalkeeper Shane Bland.

Whitby broke the deadlock on seven minutes when ex-Middlesbrough marksman Brad Fewster clipped home from close range, but they had to wait for the second half when Danny Rowe nodded in for 2-0. Two late goals gave the scoreline a flattering look as former Scarborough midfielder Matty Dixon struck and substitute Dale Hopson converted an 89th-minute penalty.

Dixon spoke to Whitby Town FC media team's Liam Ryder after the game:

Boro face a midweek replay at Marske United after the BetVictor NPL Division One North/West side grabbed a late leveller.

John Deacey's men led when James Walshaw volleyed home midway through the first half.  Athletic had chances with Kev Burgess' header cleared of the goal line and Michael Coulson's shot clipping a post just moments before disaster struck. 

It was Matty Waters, previously with Whitby Town, who popped up in added time to force a trip to the Redcar & Cleveland outfit's Mount Pleasant ground on Tuesday. This means the scheduled league clash, at home to leaders Matlock Town, has been postponed.

Deacey spoke to SAFC TV after the game:

There was better news for Bridlington Town who won 2-0 at Barton Town in the Toolstation Northern Counties East Premier.

Goals from Joe McFadyen and ex-Boro man Billy Logan steer Brid to sixth spot.

In rugby, it finished Cleckheaton 32-29 Scarborough and Leodiensians beat Bridlington 27-22.
