SCALBY RESERVES 0 FC SOBA 5 (Rackham 4, Turner)

Mike Keld’s Soba are favourites to win promotion to the second division at the second attempt after they beat Scalby Reserves 5-0 in a match switched to Oliver’s Mount from Scalby’s Carr Lane ground.

After a fairly even opening 25 minutes, Soba led after Craig Rackham’s strike cannonned off defender Jake Scutt and wrong-footed keeper Tom Manson before nestling in the back of the net.

Scalby held firm until the interval, and had their chances to level matters up, but they fell further behind when good work from Matty Turner allowed Rackham to net his second.

Scalby’s Will Bray saw his free-kick rattle off the crossbar, before Soba made it 3-0, Rackham’s volley creeping through the grasp of Manson.

Turner then turned scorer, finding himself a yard of space before smashing into the bottom corner.

Rackham completed the scoring, nipping in behind the Scalby defence to clip over the on-rushing Manson.

Keld named Tim Moor as his side’s man of the match.

WEST PIER RESERVES 4 (Crawford, N Thomas, S Garnett, W Garnett) FALSGRAVE RESERVES 2
