NORTON United of the Beckett Football League are in need of more players for the forthcoming 2021-22 season if the club is to continue playing in the second division.

Several players have retired during the recent Covid lockdown or have found other activities away from soccer. The team play on St George’s Playing Fields, Norton, in Ryedale.

Anyone wanting to play or help out in anyway is requested to contact either Mark Stead on 07432 638674 or Trevor Heselwood on 01653 694201 or 07561 022948.

Slingsby Football Club is still on the look out for somebody to come in and take the club over, bringing new players in. The club folded last season before a ball was kicked. Anyone interested should contact Chairman Glyn Brown on 07774 241062 for a chat.

Heslerton completed their playing season on Saturday, May 29 with an emphatic victory over hosts Filey Flyers at The George Pindar. The Scarborough Sunday League outfit would draw first blood on ten minutes but Hessie would soon be level, when a push on Al Wilkinson in the Filey box resulted in Gareth Driver levelling from the penalty spot.

Shortly after, the Filey 'keeper gathered a pass back from his defender. A free kick was the correct decision and Wilkinson rifled home through a crowd of players from 18 yards. Then Morgan Kendrew delivered the perfect cross from a corner, met by Jayden Isaac, and although blocked on the line, had enough power to find the back of the net.

Kendrew would then round things off with a fine run from halfway, first eluding two challenges. Faced with what appeared to be a wall of defenders, he maintained possession, twisting one way then the other before picking out Dan Watson inside right, who curled a fine effort into the 'keeper's top right hand corner.

Morgan Kendrew was the obvious pick in a fine team display.

Sinnington FC arranged a game with their current team playing a team of club legends on Monday, May 31. The current team won 7-1 with fitness telling in the end, but the legends gave them an early scare when Wayne Moon scored.

However the real winners were the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, with £1,100 raised on the day. Special thanks to David Heselwood as referee and James Earp for cooking the barbecue for spectators and players.
