KNARESBOROUGH Town reached the fourth round of the West Riding County Cup on Saturday, crushing Halifax-based outfit AFC Crossley 5-1.

They play West Yorkshire League rivals Leeds City in the next round.

Playing their first game for nearly a month, Knaresborough went ahead in the 32nd minute when Steve Bromley headed home Graham Whitehead’s corner kick.

Giuseppe Downing lashed in the second, in the 37th minute, before Crossleys pulled a goal back.

Downing made it 3-1 in the 52 minute, before Bromley smashed in a second in the 62nd.

Bromley could have sewn up a hat-trick but Whitehead’s right foot secured ‘Boro’s fifth of the afternoon after 64 minutes.
