Whitby Fishermen’s came from behind on Saturday to secure their berth in the final of the Coastal Shellfish League Cup.

The Whitby side, who are enjoying a resurgent second half to the season, levelled matters before the break through a Mark Swales cracker.

And a brace from Sam Bailey secured this side’s place in the final on April 15, against current first division champions Newlands Park in a tie to be played in Pickering.

Fishermen’s manager Mark Storr was delighted his team have reached the final.

He told the Whitby Gazette this week: “Obviously, we’re delighted to have got there from the start to the season we had.

“I’m pleased the lads have got something to look forward to, which they deserve for sticking together when things looked a little grim.”
