THORNABY manager Steven Bell said that his team doesn't mind who they play next in the second round of the FA Buildbase Vase after an emphatic 6-2 away win at AFC Emley on Saturday.

Thornaby sub Kyran Clarke was the hero, scoring a hat-trick as they scored five times in the second half to go into the draw.

"Kyran has waited very patiently for his chance, and he took it with both hands when Kallum Hannah went off injured just before half time," said Bell.

"Everyone did really well in the second half, we played some very good football and we could have scored more than six.

"That's the second time we've won away in the competition. We don't mind who we play next with the team we've got."

Michael James put Thornaby ahead with a penalty just before half time, then Joe Scaife-Wheatley and Kurtis Howes scoring early in the second half. Super Sub Clarke then put Thornaby out of sight with a clinical hat trick.

Sonni Coleman put them into the lead with an excellent overhead kick on 12 minutes, and Fred Woodhouse fired the second soon after half time.

Manager Micky Dunwell said: "It was a good win. It wasn't the prettiest of games but we knew that it would be a battle.

"We scored two very good goals and thoroughly deserved the win."

Marske's away tie at Darwen was postponed because of the effects of Storm Brian, and has been re-arranged for tomorrow night.

In the first division of the Northern League, Billingham Synthonia scored three in a game for the first time this season, but that wasn't enough to stop them going down 7-3 at Seaham Red Star. Recent signing Ashley Woodier scored twice for Synners, with Liam Travers getting the other, but Seaham were too good, and at one point were 5-1 up.

Synners are now without a win in 16 matches, and are 11 points from safety.

Guisborough went down 4-2 at Shildon, and dropped down a place to sixth from bottom because of Newton Aycliffe's 3-2 away win at second bottom Penrith.

The Priorymen were level at 1-1 early in the game thanks to a Louis Goldsack equaliser, but then Shildon went 4-1 up before Mason McNeill pulled a late goal back. …
