Fishermen’s ditch high-flying rivals

WHITBY Fishermen’s Society travelled to Seamer for the opening round of Scarborough District Cup to face opponents who have so far achieved maximum points from their six league games .

Fishermen’s started the strongest in a physical encounter and after the opening 10 minutes, began to control the game and it wasn’t long before Karl Storr drilled home his first from just inside the Seamer box to make it 1-0.

Fishermen’s were dominant with Swales and Scaife controlling the midfield area, creating plenty of chances for the forwards and the second goal came soon as Ben Sullivan curled a free-kick through a crowd of players from just outside the box.

The hard-working James Armstrong came close but Fishermen’s were unable to increase their lead.

Seamer pulled one back against the run of play just before half-time.

Fishermen’s picked up where they left off and soon created chances with Storr scoring his second when he curled one in to the top corner from 25 yards. And he completed his hat-trick 10 minutes later when he fired home from close range.

This game saw the welcome return from injury of Mark Swales and solid performance at right back from Luke Storr in a comfortable win for Fishermen’s, who have so far this season struggled to hit last year’s high standards.
