Scarborough Pirates rugby league team powered to a 48-16 win at Ovenden to secure their first success in the Yorkshire Mens League premier division.

In their first-ever game at Ovenden, the Pirates were on rampant form throughout despite a two-hour journey to the game.

Tom Jenkinson led the way with a brace of tries, with Alex Collins, Nathan Hakings, Nicky Brining, Jack Hakings and Alex Paddock all earning a try apiece.

Man of the match for the Pirates was Jack Hakings, with Harry Sleep and Jenkinson also stand-out performers for strong rugby played at a fast pace, as the home players were unable to handle the pacy Pirates.
