YORK City breezed into the quarter-finals of the North Riding County FA Senior Cup thanks to a 4-0 first-round victory at Northallerton Town.

Manager Sam Collins named six players with first-team experience in the starting line-up - captain Joe Tait, strikers Jake Wright and Alex Kempster, winger Wes York, and defenders Tom Allan and Nathan Dyer.

Tait, Wright, Allan and Dyer had all played in the National League North defeat to Bradford Park Avenue at the weekend.

Wright, Kempster and York all got on the scoresheet, to add to an own goal by Dan Jones.

Wright needed lengthy treatment after a bad challenge by Town defender Jones, and was also denied a close-range goal by a last-ditch tackle from the same player after keeper Tom Dawson had saved York's initial shot.

But the striker broke the deadlock after 32 minutes with a superb shot into the top corner from the edge of the box.

Town, lying fifth in Northern League division two, could easily have been level at the break as Aaron Ramsbottom bundled the ball over from inside the six-yard box and Damon Reaks struck the bar with a 25-yard free-kick.

However, City doubled their advantage straight after the break when Town defender Jones turned a cross from Dyer past his own keeper under pressure from Wright and Kempster.

Kempster added the third just a few minutes later - shooting smartly past Dawson from 18 yards after exchanging passes with Wright.

Town defender Andrew Ramsbottom headed a chipped effort from Wright off the line before winger York made it 4-0 in the 64th minute with a right-foot shot that floated over Dawson and inside his far post.

Jack Proctor nearly scored a consolation goal for Town in the 74th minute but his fierce drive from the edge of the area grazed the top of the crossbar.

The attendance was 267.
