WOMBLETON Wanderers lifted the York & District FA Junior Cup after beating strong favourites Dunnington Reserves 4-2.

Ryan Rivis, Josh Tateson, Luke McClaren and Calum Ellis were all on target to ensure the Ryedale outfit would lift the 120-year-old cup.

Because of the current coronavirus restrictions for neutral venues, the game was played at Dunnington's Common Road home ground.

Straight from kick off, Wombleton put the pressure on and soon won a penalty, which was well tucked away by Rivis.

Within four minutes, the Wanderers had doubled their lead, Josh Tateson taking advantage following a rebound off the goalkeeper.

On 35 minutes, Rivis was clean through, but was thwarted by an excellent save by the Dunnington keeper.

Almost immediately, Dunnington Potter raced through on goal at the other end and chipped in to reduce the arrears.

The Wombleton keeper was also cautioned for a late challenge on the goalscorer.

Dunnington emerged after the restart refreshed and Harry Blackwell slotted the ball away to level the tie at 2-2.

But a fumble from the Dunnington shot-stopper allowed a speculative shot from McClaren the find its way to the back of the net between his legs.

And, with Dunnington pressing for another equaliser, Ellis broke away to put the game to bed and secured the trophy win.

A spokesperson for the York FA commented: "This was a very competitive game played in awful conditions.

"It is a great credit to both sets of players and the match officials that the game was played in a spirit becoming of grassroots football."
