MALTON & Norton U17s sealed the Yorkshire League division four east title in style with a big win over Hull. On a perfect day for flowing rugby, Malton played some champagne stuff from the start to dominate the visitors en route to a 73-0 success.

A spokesman said: "The whole squad performed well and the pride in wearing the shirt was there for all to see as they worked tirelessly for each other and never gave their opponents a chance."

James Wood and Ben Tenge led the try-scoring with a hat-trick apiece, with the rest of the plunder shared between Alastair Stent, Will Simpson, man-of-the-match James Bulmer, Caleb Barrett and "captain fantastic” John Vasconcelos. Wood added seven conversions, and Dan Ingham and Luke Pearson Smith one apiece.

Malton & Norton U14s were knocked out of the Yorkshire Bowl by an excellent Middlesbrough XV, going down 46-14.

The first half saw Middlesbrough's forwards get on top and their speedy backs made good use of the possession to run in four tries before Malt gained a small foothold in the match thanks to a scything run through the middle from Joe Browne, who scored near the posts.

Malton started the second half trailing 24-7, but a sharp thrust down the right forced Middlesbrough into a poor kick which George Austin-Thompson ran back for a try.

Matthew Jefferson's second conversion brought Malt to within 10 points, but Boro re-established dominance and scored four more tries.

Malton's man of the match for excellence under pressure was Freddie Lockwood.

Malton & Norton U13s had an entertaining game as usual against Pocklington - a late try giving Pock a 31-24 win.

Malton took an early lead when Charlie Blackburn picked up from a ruck 25 yards out and ran to the corner.

Pocklington hit back with two well-worked tries but Malton levelled when good passing from Peter Hudson and Adam Finlinson took them to within two yards and Jack Thomas picked up from the ruck and jumped over the whitewash.

Pocklington crossed either side of half-time for a 24-12 lead but Malton hit back with great attacking play by forwards and backs alike to notch two tries, both by Ben Edwards, to level again.

The first came when Edwards picked up from a scrum, and drifted across the pitch before straightening up to score, and the second finished off good handling from the backs.

Malt went for the win but could not break through and were punished as Pock got their late winner.

Adam Finlinson booted two conversions for Malton, for whom Lewis Rudd, Billy Johnson and Oliver Kelsey stood out.
