YORK Cubs Under-19s beat their Dunnington counterparts 4-1 to win the York City & District FA U19s Cup for the first-ever time.

Kain Rogerson's second-half double put Cubs in control after Tom Grantham had cancelled out Jon Paul Turbine's first-half strike, and Dan Davison put the result beyond doubt.

Cubs had the first chance of the final 10 minutes in when an Alfie Atkinson flicked header forced a one-handed save from Dunnington keeper Harry Griffiths.

The teams were fighting well and seemed to cancel each other out with strong, well-timed challenges, keeping opportunities to a minimum.

However, the game exploded into life midway through the first half as Cubs took the lead through Turbine. Dunnington's John Paul Vass had beaten Cubs keeper Aaron Burn at the other end, only to shoot against the underside of the bar - and give the team in orange the chance to counter. Turbine broke away from the halfway line and beat the advancing Griffiths.

Dunnington responded quickly as Grantham knocked a loose ball into the Cubs net to equalise, with Griffiths pulling off a point-blank save from Isaac Clark at the other end to keep the scores level at half-time.

With the teams still evenly-matched, Rogerson latched onto a ball from the halfway line and, with one touch, scored past the advancing Dunnington keeper just after the hour-mark.

Rogerson thought he had scored again five minutes later as he placed a loose ball into the Dunnington net but the goal was ruled out for offside.

His second and Cubs' third would not be long in coming, however, as he netted direct from a corner on 78 minutes, before Davison scored into an empty net to seal the success.

The trophy, sponsored by York MotorSports Village, was presented by York FA U19s League secretary Geoff Hartley.
