Angel Athletic cruised to the most comfortable of 4-0 victories in the final of the Goal Sports Trophy at Seamer Sports on Sunday afternoon

Dan Jones and Gary Thomas' highly-fancied side never really got out of first gear as they despatched Scarborough Campus in front of a busy crowd.

Credit must be given to Campus though, as they dug deep in their first-ever final since joining the Sunday League.

Angel started the game in confident fashion, with Macca Youngson wriggling free of the Campus defence and slotting past Tom Gavin.

Despite not firing on all cylinders, Angel continued to create opportunities, Jackson Jowett smashing one of these into the side-netting.

The second Angel goal arrived from an unlikely source, as Jordan Mintoft rose well and powered a header into the net.

On a rare break forward, Campus' Rafal Jackow burst into the area, but smashed his effort very high and wide.

Youngson was unlucky not to bag his second and Angel's third right on the stroke of half-time, the wide man shuddering the bar, then seconds later Jowett struck the post.

Angel did kill the game as a spectacle when the new period got underway. The lively Joe Gallagher driving the ball in off the post to make it 3-0.

Gallagher had a flick saved and then Ali Caw lost his composure when well placed as Angel looked to turn the screw further..

Having thrown on a number of players from the bench, Angel completed their afternoon's scoring through one of these substitutes.

Josh Dolan had too much pace for the weary Campus defence and had the finish to match.

There was still time for a one-handed goalkeeping masterclass from the previously redundant Scott Wardman.

The veteran custodian brilliantly tipped over a Jackow effort to kill off hopes of a comeback and maintain his cup final clean-sheet.
