Miners dig deep to secure bragging rights in local derby

LOCAL bragging rights belonged to Whitehaven Miners at the weekend as they defeated neighbours Whitehaven AFC in the Tesco Division one.

Amateurs slipped up at the hands of their near neighbours, going down 3-0. Matthew Cardy hit two for the Miners with Ryan Stanborough hitting the third.

Games at Bransty Rangers and Parton United were both called off early on Saturday morning.

In the premier league, Aspatria closed the gap on Netherhall at the top with a fine 2-1 win over Frizington. Malcolm Graham and Shaun Law scored but bottom of the table Frizington failed to call in with the scorer of the goal and will pay the penalty.

Netherhall moved on in the JJ’s Club Whitehaven Cup as they over powered Harraby Catholic Club Youth 6-0.

The other game in this cup between Borough and Wigton Harriers was called off just before kick off.

Focsa Ken Glover Memorial Shield action saw Cockermouth move on after a 2-1 win over Carlisle City.

St Bees Reserves switched their game to Mirehouse and they took full advantage as Ryan Smith and Kyle Lofthouse both hit two apiece in an 8-1 victory.

Jake Smith, Jack Hunter, Jordon Priestley and Alan Sim all added one apiece while David Bragg hit the Saints’ consolation.

Windscale and Longtown had a ding-dong of a game superbly refereed by league secretary Steve Mcmahon.

It finished 2-2 after normal time and 3-3 after extra time but hat-trick hero Laurie Black became the villain as his spot kick was saved superbly by the Longtown keeper and they went on to win 4 - 5 on penalties.

Silloth overcame Celtic Reserves for the second time in seven days and by the same score, 4-2.

Two goals from Andy Harman and one each from Adam Carr and Lewis Muller saw Silloth through in the West Cumberland Scaffolding Divisional Cup. Darren Little and Dean Rodgers, on his return to the club after a lay off due to injury, got Celtic’s goals.
