SLIDESHOW: Fryston and Castleford Town’s thrilling cup semi-final

Fryston AFC and Castleford Town played out a thrilling semi-final in the Castleford & District FA Sunday Cup and cameraman Matthew Merrick was there to capture the action.

Here’s a slideshow selection of Matthew’s pictures from a game that looked to have been clinched by Fryston when Andrew Midgley put them 4-3 in front with only two minutes left only for Town to send the tie into extra-time thanks to a Liam Kellett penalty with the last kick.
