SHEFFIELD FC’s Curtis Woodhouse was sent off just six minutes after coming on as a substitute, last night.

He came on for his first appearance in a Sheffield shirt since returning to Club.

But he was given a straight red after coming on for Steve Woolley, in the heated game at NCEL Division One side Hemsworth MW.

Club, however, eased into the third round of the Sheffield Senior Cup, winning 4-1.

Shaq McKenzie gave Club the lead. Two minutes later Woolley volleyed home from a Matt Roney cross with Andy Gascoigne making it 3-0 on 38 minutes with a good finish on the turn from McKenzie’s nod down. Sheffield extended their lead before the break, Anton Foster sliding in to convert a Woolley free-kick.

Reece White’s late own goal gave the hosts a minor consolation.

Stocksbridge Park Steels overcame a potential banana skin at Worksop Parramore with a late goal giving the visitors a 2-1 win.

Cole Payne gave Steels a fifth minute lead from 18 yards before a Lee Holmes penalty on the half hour mark sent the teams in level at the break.

With extra-time looming Andy Ring thumped home a Ben Turner cross in the 91st minute to put Stocksbridge through.

Holders Worksop Town crashed out 6-2 at Frickley Athletic, the team they beat in last year’s final. The Tigers trailed to a Gavin Allott penalty before hitting back with a 25-yard strike from Reece Tuell. However, the cup holders later conceded three goals in five minutes.

Allott restored Frickley’s lead with a shot under keeper Paul Bastock before Luke Hinsley fired in to make it 3-1 on 49 minutes with Allott completing his hat-trick after a defensive mix-up. Luke Jeffs stretched the lead and although Lheureux Menga pulled one back Chris Wood hit a sixth.

It was a weakened Parkgate side containing a number of U19’s that crashed out 2-1 at home against Rossington Main who-played for just over an hour with 10 men following a sending off. The Steelmen led through Jamie Smith second minute strike but the visitors levelled through Alex Wilkinson’s own-goal. Niall Doyle got the winner.

Worsbrough BA beat Kinsley Boys 2-1 while AFC Emley edged out Maltby Main 4-3.
