UPTON progressed to the next round of the Hamuel Reichenbacher Yorkshire Cup thanks to a convincing 34-4 victory at Hull-based Reckitts.

Steve Beal registered a try and five goals for the Quarry Lane side, while Chris Hulme, Wayne Gray, Dean Raikes, Nathan Harcombe and Carl Spencer also crossed the whitewash in the second round clash.

The hosts responded with an unconverted try from Craig Matthews but the result was never in doubt.

Upton will go on to host Thornhill Trojans in the third round this Saturday, with the winner going on to host Moorends in the quarter final.
