Scarborough Sixth Form College’s football team are enjoying a tremendous season in the British College Sports League.

They are currently lying fifth in the table, 10 points behind the league leaders Wyke college with three games in hand over the leaders.

The two table toppers will meet on Wednesday February 16 with manager Nigel Carson confident that they can get a result.

Carson said: “I am delighted with the squad and the attitude of the players, if you don’t turn up to training then you don’t play, but all the players turn up and they all put in the effort.”

Scarborough Athletic under-19s goalkeeper and Sixth Form captain Liam Giles added: “We have the potential to make this a very good season. We are in a good position and we can progress further.”

Their next game is against Harrogate in the cup on next Wednesday, and boss Carson knows this is a great chance for the side to keep progressing and try and claim more trophies before the season is out.

Carson added: “Lewis Taylor is the stand out player in the team, he is one of the best players I have seen in my 18 years coaching college football.”

As well as having the league in mind, the college team will also be focused and looking forward to the national seven-a-side tournament that will be held in Bath in April.

This is the second time college have qualified in two years, they only just missed out on a medal last year.
