Wanderers claim early season shield


WHITBY Wanderers came out on top to claim their first piece of silverware of the season - the Victoria Hotel Shield - against a strong Fishburn Reserves side.

This was despite going behind early to a Luke Storr goal, coming back with two goals from Steven Ross and one from Jimmy Landers, making the half-time score 3-1.

This continued after the break with Danny Wilson scoring two breakaway goals and Darren Miller rounding off the Wanderers scoring, with Harry Smith managing a consolation late on for Fishburn.

Wanderers qualified for the final, finishing second in the table ahead of Whitby Rugby Club and a Victoria Hotel side made up of Fylingdales FC players.

Big thanks to Steven Ross for organising the tournament and the Victoria Hotel for sponsoring the shield.
