10-man Fryston AFC advance in cup as Liam Cooper scores hat-trick


Wakefield Sunday League Football Reports.

Fryston went off at a blistering pace with chances for James Dyson and Liam Cooper to narrowly pass or for the Chickenley keeper to make blocks.

The first goal was quick to come when a quick throw-in from Stuart Gordon found Lee Hudson inside the box and he placed Stephen Campbell who powered the ball into the net.

Dyson was only denied for a second by a big block from the keeper, but a fantastic through ball was then met by Dyson and he found Cooper who kept his composure to make it 2-0.

The most controversial point of the first half came just before the break when Leo Holbrook threw a tackle that the referee deemed unwise and was sent off.

Any thoughts that Fryston would just see the game 2-0 up in the second half were quickly dispelled as a penalty was awarded for the handball and Nathan Perks, playing as a substitute keeper, stepped up to score from the spot.

Fryston was unlucky not to add a fourth soon after when a lovely Josh Blackmore corner just eluded Gordon at the far post.

The fourth finally came through a direct route as Fryston’s second backup keeper, Jamie Rollinson, kicked the ball forward and Campbell nodded the way to Cooper who, once again, committed no no mistake to put the game out of reach for Chickenley.

Corey Davison then set up a great move by feeding Campbell whose cross was sent home by Blackmore for the game’s fifth goal.

The final goal came as Davison threw in a throw-in to Cooper who flipped the defender inside out before tossing the ball into the net to complete his hat trick.

It was one of Fryston’s best performances of the season so far and bodes well for some massive games to come towards the end of the season.

Rangers struck first when their striker Oliver Dickinson Brown took the side foot into the net. But Wakefield hit back on the half-hour mark when Young found the target with a clever looping header following good work from winger Joshua Harrison.

A fine save from a powerful header from George Mitchell kept the score at 1-1 at halftime.

Athletic grabbed the tie after the break with Mamadou Touray calmly stealing the ball and then his brilliant back heel setting up Young to score his second.

But Rangers came back through Arista Llewellyn and Callum Wilkinson to force extra time.
