Luke Foster and John Price shone as Scarborough Athletic Reserves overcame North Ferriby Athletic.

Boro started Elliott Sill at right back, Ben Slade returned in centre midfield after a month out and Brett Fitzsimmons moved onto the right ring.

Boro also included under-16s duo Tyler Richardson and Chris Shrimpton.

Boro started brightly, Foster twice making in-roads down the left and forcing Ferriby into last ditch tackles.

Boro took the lead on 25 minutes when Price broke down the right and squared for Huw Attwood to score.

Boro then paid the price for switching off and let Ferriby back into the game, after some poor passing and decision making the ball was played through and the unfortunate Jordan Parrett bringing down the striker in the box.

Former Lincoln City striker James Botton made no mistake with the penalty.

Boro restored their lead on 38 minutes, Sill’s ball found Price clear on goal and he slammed home.

Just as half-time approached Ferriby again clawed their way back into the game, poor marking allowed Stephen Batterbee to poke home for 2-2.

Boro’s second half performance was full of determination and character.

It was Foster who hit a wonderful goal on the hour mark. After his first effort was blocked, Ferriby failed to clear their lines and as the ball dropped again to Foster, his left-foot drive gave the keeper no chance.

Ferriby’s afternoon then got worse as a poor pass saw Fitzsimmons brought down by a poor tackle from behind, the referee sending off the defender.

Boro could have had more goals, Price firing wide and then laying the ball across the six-yard-box only to see Attwood unable to connect with his outstretched leg.
