County Cup Win
Steeton produced one of their best performances of the season to see off Goole United. In a repeat of the 2013/14 semi final, the hosts started the stronger. A Sam Rooke header put Steeton 1-0 up and Andy King quickly doubled the lead with a smartly taken goal.
Lee Reilly then found Tim Hird, who's sublime lob over the advancing keeper made it 3-0. Reilly himself was then fouled in the box as despatched the resulting penalty to make it 4-0.
Goole then pulled a goal back from a corner and a free kick on the edge of the box gave Sam Moore no chance before they then scrambled a third. Goole then threw everything at a Steeton in the last ten minutes but as a unit we defended superbly to see out the win.

The reserves went down 3-1 to Overthorpe, assistant manager, Damien Whiteoak grabbing Steeton's goal.
