In what was a competitive game, stand out performances from Pheonix came from Wood and Cameron Brown.

George Walmsley created a good chance when intercepting a clearance but the Hull keeper rushed out to save smartly.

Tom Wright then went on a mazy run, ending with a crossfield pass to the unmarked Jaydan Hindle, but the Hull United defence cleared.

It was however the same combination that would give Athletic the lead five minutes before the break, with Wright sliding a pin-point pass to Hindle, who turned sharply and slotted powerfully past the advancing keeper.

Athletic were now enjoying their best spell of the match and made it 2-0 just before half-time when a Nathan Vidler pass found Dan Simpson unmarked eight yards out.

Simpson’s first shot was brilliantly saved by the United keeper, but the rebound fell back to him.

His second shot was again saved by the keeper before the rebound again fell to Simpson, who kept his composure to fire past the unfortunate keeper.

After the break Hull United had a real go at Athletic and Brad Smith had to be his usual powerful self in midfield.

When Hull got past the first line of defence, Finlay Marsh and Jake Baldwin were there to make key blocks and Harry Colbeck also bravely headed.

Walmsley had Athletic’s best chance of the second period, firing narrowly over the bar.

When Anderson saved a goal bound shot late on, the points and a satisfying clean sheet were secure for Boro.

Seamer under-13s kept their promotion hopes firmly on track with a convincing 5-0 victory over Cottingham Panthers in the Hull Boys Sunday Football League.

Both teams initially struggled to create chances.

However, as they adapted to the conditions, the first chance fell to Cottingham which was well saved by Alex Chapman.

The deadlock was finally broken in the 30th minute after a clever through-ball from William Penfold split the Cottingham defence to send striker Aiden Crawford clear, and h coolly slotted the ball past the keeper to make it 1-0.

A free-kick awarded just outside the box to Seamer made it 2-0 just before half-time as Connor Avison’s powerful direct strike was too hot to handle for the away keeper, who could only parry it towards Seamer’s onrushing forward Aaron Holdsworth, who buried the ball firmly into the net.

Seamer came out in the second half attacking from the off with the two half-time substitutes Danny Haigh and Scott Wilson making an immediate impact.

It wasn’t long before it was 3-0 with a well-taken corner from Crawford which was met with a deft header by the impressive Rory Alexander, leaving the keeper stranded.

Five minutes later it was 4-0 with Cottingham’s defence struggling to handle striker Crawford’s pace and movement and it was his explosive run down the left hand side that led to the ball falling into fellow forward Danny Haigh’s path, who was brought down by the Cottingham defender to earn the home side a penalty.

Wilson stepped up to take the spot-kick, placing the ball in the bottom corner.

Seamer rotated their subs wisely and scored a fifth goal through Crawford.

He burst through the away defence yet again and sublimely chipped ball over the advancing keeper to seal the win.

As well an impressive attacking display from the Seamer forwards, they were equally complimented by a solid defensive show from Shay Jones, Penfold, Avison and Dan Bentley with Christian Boyes and Oliver Plant also providing a constant threat.

Man of the match went to Alexander for his all round hardworking midfield display.

Seamer Juniors under-12s put in a fine all round team performance, winning 7-4 at Goldsborough United.

Striker Callum Seastron put in a man of the match performance scoring five goals to set Seamer on their way.

Sam Ward scored Seamer’s other two goals in an end-to-end ecounter.

Scalby under-eights took on West Pier under-10s in a friendly double-header on the 3G pitch at Scarborough Campus.

In the first game, Bobby Shanks set up Zach Southwick, who finished beautifully.

Southwick then turned provider for Edwyn Elliot-Hobson to score with a fantastic strike from near the halfway-line.

Lewis Earle grabbed Pier’s late goal.

In the second game there were some good performances from Pier’s Riley Foster, George Stear and Harley Garton.

Foster scored twice with Garton getting on the scoresheet too, while Elliot-Hobson, Dylan Welford and Brandon Cairns scored for Scalby.
