Respects paid to west Cumbria football stalwart

A minute's silence was held in memory of Graham Caton, the Workington & District Sunday League fixtures secretary who died earlier this month, ahead of last weekend’s matches.

Mr Caton – a player turned official – was known to the football fraternity as Father Cato because of his knowledge and dedication to the sport.

The 59-year-old was a former chairman of the Cumberland branch of the Everton Supporters’ Club and had been involved in local football for many years.

He played for Portland FC, which later became Hall Park Hotel FC, and managed them to the treble in 2003 and a league and cup quadruple in 2008.

And it was fitting that Hall Park Hotel beat Borough 2-1 thanks to goals from Peter O’Donnell and Brian Straughton.

The victory sees the Workington side through to the fourth round of the League Cup.

Borough’s scorer was Ricky Barnes.

Red Lion beat Dearham by the same score to book their place in the next round.

Richard Hudson and Darryl Creighton were on target for the home side, with Jordan Branthwaite netting for Dearham.

Real Red House have been dumped out of in the second round after being unable to raise a team to face Golden Lion, who have been awarded the win.

Flimby are through to the final of the Divisional Cup after beating Lounge 41 3-1.

Mark Hine, Keith Anderson and Adam Tinnion scored for Flimby with Paul Monkhouse grabbing a consolation for the visitors.

In league action, Workington Reds Housepulled off a shock result to beat Northside 3-2.

David Gaunt, Barry Armfield and Garry Hewitt fired for the home side. A Jamie Moore brace wasn’t enough to secure any points for third-placed Northside.

Miners Arms hammered Re-Session 4-0 thanks to a brace from Craig Lewthwaite.

Andrew Marshalsea and Wayne Smith rounded off the scoring.

Galloping Horse were comprehensively beaten at home to Seaton Juniors, who won 5-0.

Jamie Bramley scored a hat-trick for the villagers with Ben Ismay and Tony Berwick adding the extras.
