YORK Minster Engineering League football has made its highly anticipated post-lockdown return with all focus on the cups after the league season was voided.

There was the odd shock in store as teams played out the first legs of their League Senior Cup and League Junior Cup fixtures.

Dringhouses - one of the main contenders for the premier division title prior to the competition's suspension - lost 3-2 to F1 Racing at home in the Senior Cup second round.

F1 started superbly and shot into a 3-0 advantage via a brace from Max Tweddle and a penalty from Alex Clark.

As F1 began to tire late in the game, Dringhouses began to assert themselves and goals from Liam Robertson and Danny Snaith mean that they head into the second leg next week with just a single-goal deficit.

Goals from Tom Hogg and Thomas Murden earned Cliffe a 2-2 draw at Huntington Rovers in the first leg of their tie. Liam Flanagan and Jonny Bullivant netted for Rovers.

Dunnington head into the second leg of their first-round clash with neighbours Pocklington Town with a healthy 3-0 advantage.

Niall Smallwood and Eddy Clapham bagged two apiece as Rawcliffe strolled to a 4-1 first-leg success at Brooklyn in round one. Simon Reeves hit the hosts' consolation.

Flynn McNaughton (3), Joe Harland (2), Tom Richardson (2), Dan Ward and Joshua Berry all made the scoresheet as Kirkbymoorside built up a seemingly unassailable 9-0 advantage over Riccall United in the second round.

Tadcaster Magnets beat Bishopthorpe United 6-2 at home in the first round.

All Junior Cup fixtures were at the first-round stage.

Bubwith won 4-2 at Crayke, whose Tom Green and Alan Boyd reduced the deficit.

Finn Stannard (2) and Dan Cates (2) scored for Walnut Tree in a 4-2 win at Pollington, whose Jimmy Hall and Sam Bate were found the net.

A double from Dan Zimer gave Wheldrake a 2-1 success over Copmanthorpe, whose reply came from Mike Brooks.

Ryan Peate (2) and Jed Hudson fired Garforth to a 3-0 win over Sporting Knavesmire.

Bishop Wilton look to have an almost impossible task on their forthcoming trip to Rufforth - after the visitors left with a 10-0 advantage. Dave McNichol (2), Dylan Howlett (2), Brad Walters (2), Liam Keenaghan (2), Josh Coulson and James Ford amassed the Rufforth haul.

LNER Builders have even more of an uphill struggle after losing 16-0 at South Milford. Dan Morgan (5), Adam Priestley (4), Danny Middleton (3), Tom Micklethwaite-Charles (3) and Jordan Richards shared the spoils.

Barmby Moor were left ruing a missed penalty at 1-0 down to Cawood. Goals from Lewis Hall, Matthew Ward and Kyle Wilks saw the home team finish 3-0 victors.

David Elkington (2), Robert McDermid, Luke Preston and Jonathan Nicholson fired Duncombe Park to a 5-2 triumph over York RI.

Clifford beat Wilberfoss 5-1 and Selby Olympia won 2-0 success at Kellingly Welfare.

Marton Abbey lost 4-1 at Fulford United.

The opening round of the Reserve Cup pitted old foes Wigginton Grasshoppers and Dunnington against each other - and Dunnington drew first blood with a 2-1 first-leg win. Sam Gough netted for hosts Hoppers.

Malt Shovel beat Huntington Rovers 3-1.

Wilson Briggs netted five in Dringhouses' 6-2 win at Copmanthorpe. Reece Botterill hit the other Houses goal, with Tom Paley and Jack Foote replying.

Civil Service lost 6-0 to visitors Rawcliffe, who had Henry Wharton (2), Sam Smith, Billy Annett, Nick Tate and Tom Himsworth on target.

Tom Ward netted in Osbaldwick's 4-1 loss to Riccall United. Danny Rodwell, Paul Rodwell, Hedley Ben Harris and Pat Conlon scored for the visitors.

Patryk Zimer, Danny Holmes, Mario Bratowski and Kieron Waterson scored in Walnut Tree's ding-dong 4-3 success at Rufforth United.

John Parsons, Jake Dunham and Will Snook gave Pocklington Town a 3-0 win over local rivals Wheldrake.

James Anderson got the vital goal in Poppleton United's 1-0 win at Hemingbrough United.

Fulford United won 3-1 at Garforth.

Matty Webster struck for Brooklyn in a 1-1 draw with Strensall Tigers, for whom Shane Bogg fired home.
