Having gone over a year without a victory, Scalby Reserves made it two wins in seven days with a 2-0 success over high-flying Sleights.

Sleights, who went into the game top of the third division table, had the better of the first half but there were no goals before the interval.

However, 10 minutes after the re-start the deadlock was broken when Darren Arnott pulled the ball back for Danny Gregory to fire Scalby ahead.

The visitors laid siege to the Scalby goal in search of an equaliser but the home defence, marshalled impressively by Jake Scutt, managed to hold firm.
