Kev Oldroyd kicked an early penalty and Phil Warren went over out wide to hand Scarborough enough points to collect the win.

Team manager Richard Dean said: “We scored early on and then held them after that.

“It was a bit touch and go just before the break, it did look like they would score a try because they were camped in our 22.

“We put together a great defensive performance though, which proved to be enough.

“Phil Warren in the second row was our star man on the day, Sam Woodward, our most improved player this season and Andy Marsden, our player of the year, also did well.

“It is always nice to win something and it was made all the better by the decent-sized turn-out of Scarborough followers who also braved the attrocious conditions.
