Knaresborough Town wrote a memorable chapter in their history today, as they thumped Appleby Frodingham by an incredible nine goals to one.

On-loan Harrogate Town striker Josh Garbutt was pivotal in the NCEL First Division win, claiming a superb hat-trick for Brian Davey’s troops.

In the NCEL Premier, Tadcaster Albion were denied another victory by a late goal from visitors Staveley.

Carl Stewart had claimed the opener for Taddy, only for Staveley to clinch a share of the spoils in the 88th minute.

Meantime in the EvoStik First Division North, Harrogate Railway were beaten 4-0 at home to Ramsbottom United.

Harrogate Town enjoyed a weekend off due to Hednesford Town’s FA Cup progression.

They return to Skrill North at home to Oxford City next Saturday.
