Last Wednesday, Sinnington visited Malton School to play Union Rovers. Joe Brown, one of Union's strong centre backs, scored from a corner halfway through the first half, and tricky winger Lee Timms added a second goal just before half-time.

With 20 minutes left to go, a Sinnington man left Union's defender for dead, before pulling it to the edge of the box for captain, Jon Mitchell, to score with a great finish. Lee Timms finished the game with a tap-in late on. Union left happy with a final score of 3-1 and a decent performance. Liam Jackson was Sinnington’s man of the match.

On Saturday, Union visited Rillington Rovers, and Union bagged the first goal, settling the game before half time with three more strikes.

Rillington got a consolation goal toward the end of the second half, to make the final score 9-1, with Union's tally including a strike from the team manager, who came on as a sub.

With the cricket season upon us, Heslerton Football Club grabbed the opportunity on Friday evening to squeeze one more 90 minutes of football in at Sand Lane.

Assistant senior manager Steve Allardice took charge of a Heslerton Blues team against an Andy Stanton Select XI, with both sides competing for the Last Hurrah Trophy.

After a cagey opening, the Blues went ahead, Phil Horton rolling back the years to score with his trademark, a header in the six yard box from a corner. His side soon doubled their advantage with Gareth Driver firing in from close range.

The Tangerines were playing some decent football but just lacked that final telling ball, however Horton again showed them how to finish with a fine shot from 25 yards.

Andy’s boys continued to press for an opening and from a fine Andy Sellers' cross into the box, centre halves Sam Miller and Phil Ward, of Union Rovers and Kirkdale respectively, combined for Ward to fire home.

In the second half, The Select Boys continued to press, but were undone as Driver robbed the fullback to run on and score his second and his side's fourth. Ward narrowed the deficit, this time heading home from the corner.

After a tactical switch in midfield Stanton’s boys began to take a hold of the game and with the resurgent Tom Stockdale pulling the strings and his captain Morgan Kendrew now making a real menace of himself along the Blues back line, goals were sure to come. Kendrew was instrumental, firstly assisting Dan Blanchard to score.

Fortune then turned in the Tangerines' favour as Josh Wade, impressive throughout, headed into his own net. Down at the other end, Charlie Richardson had a great chance to regain the lead for his side, only to shoot wide with the 'keeper stranded. James Webb then scored the all-important goal before Kendrew was upended in the box, Stockdale making no mistake from the spot. In the dying moments Blanchard scored once more, putting the Select XI into seventh heaven.
