Semi-final heartbreak for Sports Club

Bridlington Sports Club suffered a crushing 2-1 defeat to leaders Wawne United in the semi-final of the Whiteheads Fish and Chips League Cup last night.

Wawne, who are eight points clear at the top of the Humber Premier League, scored a winner with practically the last kick of the game at Pocklington, and will take on Division One side Walkington in the final.

Eric Hall netted for the Bridlington side had beaten AFC Rovers, Hessle United and Sculcoates Amateurs on the way to the last four.

The race for the Driffield and District League title took another twist as Forester Athletic 1sts missed the opportunity to draw level on points with leaders Bridlington Rovers.

Foresters were beaten 1-0 at home by Flamborough 1sts, who are looking dangerous themselves, lying seven points off the pace but with three games in hand.

Mermaid United Old Boys beat Bridlington Excelsior 6-2 in last night’s other Premier Division fixture.

Billy Simpson and Kane Robinson scored as third-placed Coachman won 2-0 at second-placed Full Measure in Division One. But Driffield Star remain in pole position after an 8-0 hammering of Flamborough 2nds.
