Swanland from Hull visited the Flamingo Land Stadium to face Scarborough Athletic Under-15s.

In a game which Scarborough dominated, they led 3-0 at half-time thanks to a Marcus O’Flanagan hat-trick.

In the second half, a combination of the tired legs of Swanland and Scarborough’s fine passing play meant Boro scored at will.
