scarborough Ladies under-12s came out on top of the first ever local derby between the two clubs at this age group, with a 4-0 victory.

Boro started the brighter of the two with their pass and move game too much for the visitors to handle and were soon on the front foot, having pinned the visitors in their own half, it came as no surprise when Boro got their breakthrough.

Good work by Abbey Frederiksen found Aimie Swift who laid the ball off to Cherie Playforth, who found the back of the net from the edge of the box.

In attempting to save Playforth’s shot, Cayton keeper Kirsty Stewart injured her fingers and could take no further part in the match.

This seemed to totally throw the Cayton girls and a very good Boro side took control of the game.

Boro stepped up the pace, a quick short corner was swung in by Rhian Cattermole where Swift finished in typical style to make it two.

Cayton rallied and won a corner, a good delivery fell to the feet of Olivia Hall, but keeper Sasha Woods was quick to react and made a stunning double block to preserve Boro’s advantage.

The home team were spurred on from this and opened Cayton up again, this time Lexi Hepples won the ball at the back and fed Cattermole who passed to Playforth.

She then played a one-two with Swift and again finished well from the edge of the box to give the home team a three-goal half-time lead.

The second half started with Cayton fighting back and they came close on a couple of occasions to reducing the lead, but five minutes after the restart Boro struck again.

Playforth forced a defender into a mistake and dispossessed her, she then got to the byline to cut the ball across to Cattermole at the back post for a tap-in.

Cayton kept working hard to get back into the game and almost got a consolation but the striker’s shot came back off the bar.

Sarah Marsden was awarded Cayton’s player of the match for her high work-rate against the lively front line of Boro.

The home team’s manager Colin Hepples said: “Darcey Boyes and Sam Head marshalled the Boro midfield well in the closing stages to prevent any further attempts on the home goal.

“Credit must go to both teams and sets of supporters for the friendly and sporting way this game was played.”

Cayton boss Kev Smith said: “We knew we would come up against good teams in the premiership, and Colin’s team are very strong and should be proud of the football they played.

“Our girls didn’t let their heads drop which was pleasing and we now know what we have to work towards to further progress as a team”
