Staithes Athletic enjoyed back-to-back victories for the first time this season taking themselves up to 10th in the North Riding Football League Premier Division after a 4-3 win over Redcar Newmarket.

It was an amazing second half comeback from Staithes after Newmarket raced into a three-goal half-time lead with goals from Michael Dowse, inside two minutes, Andy Tullock, midway through the first period and Dowse’s penalty on 40.
