Tom Benson was at the double as Scarborough Athletic Under-14s bagged a 2-0 win in their first home league against FC Seamer.

Boro started strongly and a good piece of midfield work resulted in Benson scoring with a curling shot from outside the box.

The home side continued to press and some fine play on the wing resulted in an assist from Adam Changase, setting up Benson for his second.

Some good defending by Seamer kept the score at two.

In the second half the play swung from end-to-end, again with goalline clearances from Seamer and a fine double save by Boro keeper Kian Heblich.

Boro continued to have further chances but were unable to add to their tally.

Kobi Wilson netted four times for Scarborough Athletic Under-12s as they romped to a 12-0 victory over Burlington Jackdaws.

Boro took the lead through Reuben Hartley, before Wilson got the first of his four goals.

Toby Jones continued his fine form in front of goal with a double, before Wilson netted again for Boro’s fifth.

Hartley got two of the next three goals to complete his hat-trick with a Harley Adams effort sandwiched in between.

Wilson and Jones both notched before half-time to complete their own hat-tricks and give Boro a 10-0 lead.

The second half saw more of an even contest as Boro struggled to find their first-half fluency and Burlington defended resolutely.

There was chance for Harley Thornton to get his name on the scoresheet with a fine strike from outside the box, before Wilson finished off for his fourth and Boro’s 12th.

Scarborough Athletic Under-16s visited Kinloss for their league encounter and came away with the points after a resounding 10-1 win.

The first 20 minutes were fairly even, but after Nathan Vidler seized on a through-ball midway through the half to open the scoring it was one-way traffic, George Walmsley crossed for Dan Simpson to add a second shortly afterwards and after Jaydan Hindle had struck a post, Vidler added a third.

Vidler, who was too strong for the home defence all afternoon, reached his personal tally of six in the second half with some lethal finishing and Simpson completed his brace.

Harry Coldbeck scored with a fine header from a pinpoint Walmsley free-kick and Nathan Parker got the loudest cheer of the day, leaping above the home defence to complete the scoring at 10 with a bullet header.

Kinloss scored their consolation midway through the half.

Scarborough Under-15s third league game of the season saw them travel to the 3G pitch of Beverley Town and lose 3-2.

The hosts started well and took the lead, with keeper Alex Chapman making sure no further goals were added.

The second half saw Beverley make it 3-0.

This kicked Boro into action, a neat pass from Marcus O’Flanagan put Reuben Staveley clean through and the striker scored.

With five minutes left Ted Edwards scored a header at the far post from a Jake Reeves corner.

Beverley held on despite good pressure.

Jack Scarborough earned the man of the match award for Boro.

Scarborough Athletic’s Under-17s lost by a 3-2 scoreline against North Ferriby in their clash.
