Hat-trick of wins

Mon 03 Oct 2016

All three teams progressed in the County Cups this weekend.

The first team beat Altofts 3-2. Andy Holden headed home Olly Hunters cross for the first goal before Lee Reilly doubled the advantadge. Steeton then switched off and conceeded just before half time. Ben Clarkson looked to have wrapped things up when he struck the third in the 89th minute, but the home side quickly pulled one back to ensure a nervy finish.

The reserves progressed following a 4-2 penalty shoot out win over Wetherby Reserves. Sam Rooke had put us ahead in normal time, however Wetherby levelled within ten minutes. Extra time failed to seperate the sides and Harry Jarman saved two kicks leaving Brannan Lawn to send us through to the next round.

Ben Clarkson continued his scoring form by hitting four as the Under 18 side beat Leeds City U18's 11-1 to progress as well.

Steeton 2 Campion 2

Thu 25 Aug 2016

Despite earning a point, manager Roy Mason was left to rue a late Campion leveller and admitted that it felt more like a defeat.

Lee Reilly had put Steeton ahead from the penalty spot before Sam Rooke stabbed home a second following a great free kick from Andy Holden. 

Then slack marking allowed Campion back into the game and a last minute free kick from the visitors goalkeeper, Karl Renardson sailed into the back of the net leaving Mason to reflect on what could have been. "We didn't move the ball as well as we can and play with the high tempo that suits us better. That said we had got ourselves into a winning position and threw it away. There were some harsh words spoken after the game and I make no apologies for that as we need to be better if we are to make any kind of challenge this season and quite frankly the last fifteen minutes simply wasn't good enough. That said we have another opportunity on Saturday to put things right".

Steeton face Dram at home this Saturday. Kick off is 2.30pm
