Teesside titans Dormans cruised to a second successive North Riding Sunday Cup success as they crushed York outfit Bishopgarth 7-1 in the final.

Dormans, who play in the Stockton Sunday League top flight, enjoyed a goal rush against a blunt Bishopgarth at the Haxley Road sports complex in York.

The York side had proved their credentials by beating Eston Villa in the semi-finals but Dormans demolished them to continue a swaggering cup run. The side, based at Oxford Road in Middlesbrough, had already polished off Borowalkers FC and Intrepide Explorer, both 4-1, and then squeezed out Yarm Athletic 2-1 in their semi.

Dormans bossed it from the off, took control control of midfield and turned the screw on a home side that looked nervous and error prone playing it out from the back.

They got an early opener, quickly added a second and after that it was just a question of how many they would score. Stuart Rose scored twice and the rest were shared around with Phil Horsman, Christian Selby, Clayton McDonald, Matthew McQueeny and Jamie Lisle all getting on the scoresheet.

Dormans were quicker, sharper in the tackle and ruthless in their attacking and never eased off through-out although Bishopgarth plugged away and saved their blushes with a late consolation but that didn’t put a dampener on the Teessiders’ celebrations.

It was a second cup win in a row after beating Stockton Oddfellows 5-2 last season.
