Scarborough Goalball Club’s intermediate team could be heading for a fourth consecutive regional league title after more success at Scarborough RUFC.

The club, who have sealed their place in the history books by winning both their novice and intermediate regional leagues for the past three season, have now been officially crowned as the reigning champions of the North of England.

Playing their best goalball yet, Scarborough took on West Yorkshire, Nottingham Sheriffs, South Yorkshire, North East and the Lancashire Lions at Silver Royd.

After beating West Yorkshire 15-5, Scarborough played their arch rivals Nottingham, who had easily beat them in the end of season tournament back in July.

This was to be Scarborough’s day as brilliant defending by Taylor Vasey and Charlie Woodhead and stunning goalscoring by Rio Vasey, proved to be too much for the Sheriffs and gave Scarborough a 7-2 win.

Comfortable wins against North East, 7-1, and South Yorkshire, 8-1, followed, leaving the last match of the day against the Lancashire Lions.

The Lions got an early lead but Scarborough managed to equalise by half-time.

In the second half Scarborough’s Curtis Vasey and Stuart Hudson produced some great goalball and with the help of some terrific scoring by Woodhead, Scarborough won the game 8-5 and earned the tournament gold medal.

Scarborough’s novice team will play their first tournament of the new season in Sheffield on Saturday.
