Wayne McHugh enjoyed himself as Fryston Warriors breezed into the last 16 of the BARLA Yorkshire Cup with a 13-try rout of York Locomotive.

McHugh was the star of the show as he helped himself to seven tries in a 76-6 win for a Fryston team that have been generously sponsored by Mark Harling, of Monkhill Sandwiches.

It did not take Fryston long to open their account when the hard work of the forwards plus the flair of the backs opened the York defence to let McHugh stroll over under the posts.

Az Dobek converted and started the kicking for Fryston, landing six out of seven attempts as well as running in three tries.

But as the game went on Fryston permutated their line-up and Cogan, Powell and Withington all landed shots at goal.

Fryston forwards, led by hooker Jack Lee, continued to dominate the opposition and this allowed Pickerill and Dobek to create the openings for McHugh to run in try after try and he scored the first four for Fryston.

Fryston went in at half-time with a commanding 40-6 lead, but were in no mood in the second half to ease up and further tries from McHugh, Dobek, Jack Pickerill, Jack Lee and Ben Mawson rounded off a good afternoon for the club.

Fryston man of the match, sponsored by 28-30 Cafe, in Bank Street, went to McHugh, followed by Lee and Ben Mawson, but it was an excellent display from the entire team.

Fryston travel to Queensbury in the next round on October 31, but first have to travel to West Leeds this Saturday in the Pennine Presidents Cup.

Fryston are looking for match day sponsors. Anyone interested in sponsoring a player, match ball or game can contact Malcolm Agar on 07827316107 or Wayne Jones on 07775711073 for further details.
