The hosts took an early lead, a cross-shot from the wing was palmed away by the Cayton goalkeeper but only as far as a Seamer striker, who was able to tap the ball in.

Seamer were the stronger side in the first half, but only managed one goal, and they paid the price for this when Joshua Pickin crossed just before half-time which found Josh Smith in the box and he was able to beat the keeper and make it 1-1.

The second half was end-to-end with both teams having lots of possession as well as lots of shots, but several corners from Cayton could not beat the Seamer defence as the scores finished at 1-1.

Cayton manager, Tommy Smith said: “All players from both sides played very well and the game was a great advert for under-10s football.”
