The Under-15s lost 4-0 at home to a strong Marton side in the semi-finals of the Junior County Cup, with Brooklyn Tigers tackling Brooklyn Lions in the other half of the draw.

Athletic Under-14s also lost 2-0 on the road to another Marton side in the same round, with the victors heading to the final of the County Cup.

In league news, Athletic Under-11s won their mini-league over the weekend, an excellent achievement by the young team in their second season together.

The Boro Under-14s maintained their fine form since returning to action with a comfortable 6-0 victory over Brid Rangers.

A delightful piece of trickery from Ryder Greening followed by a calm finish gave SAFC an early lead, with this followed by a Harry Southwick netbuster to take the game to 2-0.

Bridlington battled hard but tired in the second half, goals from Connor Webster (2), Jake Gallagher and George Birley completing the scoring on a wet and windy morning in Filey.
