Nathan Vidler led the way with six as Scarborough Athletic Under-15s smashed East Riding Rangers 25-0 in the Hull Boys League KO Cup first round.

With Rangers playing in the third division and Boro plying their trade in the first division, it turned out to be a mismatch as Athletic's Under-15s comfortably saw off the hosts to make it through to the next round.

Scarborough started strongly and never looked back as the goals kept on coming.

The Boro coaches gave the players the target of a clean-sheet, keeping the ball on the floor and trying to play two-touch football throughout.

Leading the game 13-0 at half-time the Boro players were keeping to the targets set and in the second half were just as prolific.

Vidler hit six, Finlay Marsh struck five, George Walmsley bagged four, while further goals came from Dan Simpson (3), Jayden Hindle (2), Kane Randerson Wray (2), Zamese Deans, Lewis McGrath and Harry Coldbeck.

Among the highlights included Vidler taking the ball from centre-back, beat eight Rangers players with the ball before slotting the ball in.

Scarborough Athletic Under-12s progressed to the next round of the KO Cup with a penalty shoot-out win over Elloughton Blackburn.

In the first half Boro went a goal down, but fought back to grab an equaliser as Josh Kelly scrambled in.

The game was very end-to-end and Boro were denied on several occasions by some great saves from the Elloughton keeper as they searched for a crucial second goal.

With the scores locked at 1-1, the game went into the two extra periods.

The chances continued to slip by for both sides, leading to a penalty shoot-out.

The key moment came when Boro keeper Seb Smith made an excellent save to keep out the fourth Elloughton penalty and keep the scores locked at 2-2.

It was left to Frazer Ives to bury his penalty into the bottom corner to put Athletic through to the next round.
