It was league cup week for the boys with several of our teams playing opposition from higher divisions, so we were always going to have a mixed bag of results. Under 9 Eagles, Under 10 Eagles, Under 10 Falcons, Under 13 Falcons and Under 14 were all at home but only the Under 9 Eagles march into the second round with a fine 3-0 win against Shildon AFC with goals from Lowe 2 and Howarth 1.

All other teams were away apart from the Under 16 boys who had a bye into the next round. Great wins for the Under 12’s at Wynyard and Under 13 Eagles at Stokesley 7-2 and 6-0 respectively.

The Under 9 Falcons had a trip to Leven Athletic and in a game where the lads went 1-0 up and 2-1 down, finally ended 2-2 after extra time and into the dreaded penalty shoot out, but it wasn’t their day as Leven went through to the next round.
