Harrogate Town manager Simon Weaver declared himself “pleased” with his side’s performance as they cruised to a 4-0 victory over Barnoldswick Town in the West Riding FA County Cup.

Wayne Brooksby hit a hat-trick and Jordan Robertson also netted against the North West Counties Premier Division outfit, who play their football three levels below the men from the CNG Stadium.

“Obviously the Barnoldswick match was one that we should always have been winning, but the performance was still important,” Weaver said

“The pace and tempo was very good throughout and we played some really nice football. I’m pleased with what I saw from the lads.

“What is important is that we now combine the defensive solidity that we showed at Salford last weekend and the fluency in attack we displayed in midweek and carry both of these things into Saturday’s game with Tamworth.”

Success for Town sets up a meeting with NCEL Division One side Campion in the next round.
