Slazenger thirds, desperate for points in Yorkshire League Division 6, lost out 2-0 in their closely fought game at Normanby Park seconds.
The visitors were caught flat-footed in the early minutes and found themselves 1-0 down.
Andy Birkett and Simon Miller looked to bring Slazenger back into the game and they thought their efforts had reaped rewards when Andy Birkett cut the ball back to Geoff Birkett who touched the ball on for James Walker to fire the ball home. But the goal was disalowed and Normanby kept their lead.
The game was evenly contested with Neil Hutchins, Eddie Taylor and Martin Lofthouse outstanding for Slazenger. But the result was put beyond doubt with a late second Normanby goal.
