The spirits were high as Stokoemotiv Whitby FC emerged victorious once more over rivals Real Gothic FC at the Whitby Goth Weekend charity football match.

Much to the fans' delight, the boys in black put in a terrific first half performance to lead 1-0 at the break. But it wasn't to last as a quick succession of goals from Stokoe's boys dispelled gothic hopes as the match ended 6-1.

Around £700 has been raised for charitable causes, which will be split between The Dalewood Trust, The Willow Foundation and SOS Children's Villages.

The usual array of Real Gothic attire was on display in the stands, which coupled with the returning pair of gothic commentators, made for a gripping atmosphere.

The Whitby ladies also emerged as 6-2 victors over the Sisters of Real in the half-time penalty shootout.
