Seamer Sports Under-11s continued their dominance of the Filey Cup by claiming the silverware for the fourth consecutive year.

The Seamer side started the tournament, which boasts teams from all over the north of England, in a strong manner.

They won 4-0 and 3-0 against local rivals Scholes Park and Castle Vale (Midlands) respectively.

Then Seamer played a tough couple of games, both of which were drawn 0-0 against West End (Hull) and Sheffield Rangers.

Seamer went on to meet Rangers in a thrilling final game of the tournament.

They went 2-0 up in the first half, Jake Gallagher with a superb free-kick, and Harvey Bayes from the penalty spot after his goal-bound shot was handled on the line.

In the second half Rangers came at Seamer and they had to defend desperately to keep them out on two occasions.

Sheffield did pull one back with a minute to go, but Seamer held it out.

Joe Cappleman stood out in defence and Harley Dawson was solid wherever he was asked to play.

Boss Jamie Bradshaw said: “Credit to all the lads, they only conceded one goal and winning the competition four years in a row takes some doing.”

Park power to Heslerton win

Scholes Park Raiders under-12s grabbed an 11-1 victory against Heslerton.

Park were soon onto the score-sheet with a fantastic shot from Reuben Hartley. Not long after Sam Hampton made it 2-0.

A cracking corner from Hartley then went straight to Harley Adams who finished it with a fine header.

Heslerton boys tried to retaliate but soon fell 4-0 down when Hartley headed past the keeper.

Hartley soon saw sight of the net and took a shot which resulted in a fifth goal.

Heslerton tried to hit back when Billy Keough’s effort was saved by Daniel Taylor.

Once again, Scholes chased upfield and a pass to Hartley enabled him to strike, making it 6-0 at the break.

The second half saw Heslerton come out fighting when Keough hit the bar.

Soon after Bobby Carrabine played a great cross into Adams, who finished off with an excellent header.

Heslerton’s heads didn’t go down and they managed to open their account.

Charlie Doubtfire-Langfield took his chances and scored a further two goals followed by a strike by Sam Hampton.

Just before the full-time whistle Doubtfire-Langfield went on to score a further goal from 20 yards.

Rees at the double for the District

An understrength Scarborough & District Schools under-14s managed to claim a 2-2 draw against Leeds.

Leeds took the lead when a superb point-blank save from Ben Chamberlain was swept home.

Encouraged by their success Leeds took control and it was a great effort from the Boro back four, lead by captain Blake Drury, to prevent the home side extending their lead before the interval.

A change of formation and tactics, and their turn of the favourable conditions, brought the Seasiders back into the game.

Luke Rees pounced on a poor goal-kick to coolly beat the keeper and level up.

After a string of fine stops from Chamberlain, Leeds reclaimed the lead.

Rees then muscled his way into the box and was felled for a penalty that he converted to make it 2-2.

Boro could have had another spot-kick in the final moments when Brandyn Cooper was brought down, but the ref said no.
