THE great adventure in the FA Cup is over for Warrington Rylands 1906, who have been knocked out 1-0 by York City at the second qualifying round stage.

A first-half free-kick, netted by Sean Newton, proved to be just enough for the Minstermen, who play three levels above Dave McNabb’s side.

Andy Scarisbrick’s missed penalty for Rylands in the second half proved crucial in front of a sell-out crowd of 300 at Gorsey Lane.




Warrington Rylands were first to go close in the 18th minute. Drummond got past his defender and found Shanley, whose looping shot landed just the wrong side of the York crossbar.

Drummond got himself in space three minutes later but his shot was parried by Jameson.

A York City glancing header in the 30th minute was a sign of the visitors finally finding their feet.

And then came the Minstermen’s goal, with Newton hitting his 20 yard free-kick hard and low wide of a dishevelled wall and beyond the keeper McCall.

Rylands were then saved by the post from a Wright shot.

A penalty nine minutes into the second period after Milne was felled provided Rylands with a wonderful chance to level but Scarisbrick pushed his low effort on to the post and the ball bounced to safety for York.

Cassidy who forced a superb save out of McCall and Brown fired over as York sought to finish the contest.

From a Rylands corner the ball bounced around in the area before Simpson’s shot was blocked.

Rylands got shots off in the box two minutes into added time but York cleared to Barrow who ran the full length before putting the ball over the bar.

But it was York’s day as they ended Blues’ furthest run in the FA Cup in their entire history.
