LONG-STANDING rivals Dunnington and Old Malton St Mary's played out a 1-1 draw in the York Minster Engineering League premier division, writes Graham Ireton.

With the York & District FA Cups taking centre-stage this weekend, there was a limited programme of action in the York Minster Engineering League.

That said, the premier division saw one of the most hotly-contested fixtures from the last decade go ahead with Dunnington travelling to Old Malton St Mary’s.

The draw leaves Dunnington two points off table-toppers Wigginton Grasshoppers, and Old Malton five behind.

Poppleton United claimed the scalp of Hemingbrough United in the top flight’s other game.

Reece Holmes, Brad Worsfold, Reg Miah and Danny Owers all netted for Poppy in a goal-injected 5-3 victory.

Tockwith made it three wins out of three in division one with a 9-1 success at Harrison Signs.

Tom Richards stole the show with a five-goal haul, with Graham Hutchinson and Chris Fairhurst collecting two apiece.

A Simon Reeves goal gave Brooklyn a 1-0 win at home to Pocklington Town.

Tommy Hudson fired home for Church Fenton against Duncombe Park, but his goal could not prevent the hosts succumbing to a 3-1 loss in division three’s only game.

LNER Builders enjoyed their game with Selby Olympia, winning 4-1.

Thomas Bateson, Ash MacPherson, Jack Crowland and Karl Thompson were on target for Builders.

The only game in reserve 'B' came at Copmanthorpe where a 60th-minute goal from Jack Carter gave the home team the lead over Malt Shovel.

However, in typical Shovel style, the away side rallied and a goal from Connor O’Brien nine minutes later levelled the match before a Connor O’Brien strike and a Kie Latham penalty sealed a 3-1 victory for the Selby side.
