CHARLIE RICHARDSON was named man of the match for his constant running, battling and superb goal as Heslerton Under-10s played out a fantastic end-to-end game at Phoenix Colts.

Both keepers impressed as Heslerton U9s edged Scholes Park Raiders thanks to a goal by Jalen Welburn, showing good feet to beat his man and finish well.

Good defensive teamwork kept Raiders out, with man-of-the-match going to Luke Tindall.

Max Taylor-Barber starred as Heslerton U8s visited West Pier. They hit the woodwork twice but victory didn’t come.

Tommy Palmer and Harry Richardson were men of the match in the second game, in which Hessy won with goals by Jake Allardice (2), Charlie Swiers (3) and Myles Johnson.

A Malachey Kendrew corner found Josh Cass who scored his first goal for the club in Heslerton U7s’ match with Scalby. There were encouraging runs by Oliver Dade and Oscar Webb while Kai Wilson was man of the match.

The second game saw a goal each for man-of-the-match Kendrew and Webb.


• BROOKLYN Under-15s lost ground in the York Minor League first division after being edged out 5-4 at home in a seesaw match against Fulford.

Brooklyn had a strong wind behind them in the first half but, with virtually their first attack, Fulford opened the scoring.

The Ryedale side immediately hit back as a long ball beat the defence and Luke Scott showed good anticipation to run onto it and beat the keeper.

Fulford retook the lead but, after good passing down the left, Brooklyn won a free-kick which was curled in by Tom Richardson and volleyed in from close range by Andrew Tiffney.

Fulford again took the lead but Brooklyn were immediately spurred into action and Tiffney scored his second in a goalmouth scramble following a Richardson corner.

Brooklyn then took the lead. James Allan’s quick throw-in saw Scott pass to Luke Balderson just inside the area and his low powerful shot beat the keeper.

However, Fulford started the second half the stronger and equalised as Brooklyn struggled to clear the ball against the strong wind.

Brooklyn’s goal was now under constant threat, and, after a few missed chances, Fulford bagged a 65th-minute winner from the penalty spot.

Keelan Simpson scored for Kirkbymoorside U16s in a 1-1 draw at Poppleton, while Kirkbymoorside U15s enjoyed a 7-1 win over Rufforth.

Harvey Dalquen led the way with a hat-trick, with Lucas Davison, Alex Liley, Deon Barnes and Zak Brewster also netting.

Kirkbymoorside U14s also enjoyed a big win, 6-1 over Copmanthorpe, with strikes by Dan Ward (2), Will Lockett, Joe Harland, Ben Teasdale and an own goal.

Kirkbymoorside U13s had an even better result, winning 8-0 at Scholes Park Raiders.

Jordan Anderson hit a treble and Fin Clive and Jonah Pollard doubles. Jake Edwards-Nutton also netted.

A depleted Heslerton U11s put on a brave performance but were edged out 3-2 at Scholes Park Raiders.

After taking an early lead though a wind-assisted cross, the hosts threatened to overrun the visitors in the early stages, Ben Flinton and Finn Bricusse working tirelessly to restrict chances.

A rare breakout saw Tom Horsley find an incisive pass to allow man-of-the-match Josh Dolan to fire home, but it only served to inspire Scholes Park who scored two more in quick succession.

Heslerton custodian Brad Spiller was in outstanding form, keeping the visitors in the contest, and when Tom Allan squared for Flinton to smash home the game changed. However, Heslerton, throwing everything at the Raiders, missed two good chances to equalise, as the hosts clung on.

Dylan Edwards scored both goals as Kirkbymoorside U11s drew 2-2 with Ayton.

• PICKERING Town Under-11s held on for 3-2 win against Wigginton Greens as both teams put their unbeaten York & Ryedale Mitchell League records on the line.

Pickering pressured the Wigginton goal early on but were unable to break through and Wigginton, getting a foothold in the match, took the lead just before half-time.

On the resumption, it wasn’t long before further Pikes pressure told, neat football seeing Nathan Williams grab two quick goals.

Great handling from Pikes keeper Harry Fisher ensured the score stayed the same until Billy Patch set off on a run down the left which culminated in a penalty, man-of-the-match Williams completing his hat-trick from the spot.

Wigginton grabbed another goal late on but Pickering clung on.

Brooklyn U11s Lions won 4-0 against Woodthorpe in their first game of the new year to stay top of division two.

Good goalkeeping and defending prevented the Wanderers from scoring first. Instead man-of-the-match Matthew Lock broke the deadlock at the other end with a super long-range free-kick.

Jay Jackson doubled the lead and, although Woodthorpe continued to press after the break, Ethan Oakes scored a superb header from a Lock corner and sealed victory with his second.

Old Malton St Mary’s U11s pipped Bishopthorpe WR Black 5-4 in another thriller.

Seb Allan-Swallow finished well, following up Josh Mann’s parried shot, but Bishopthorpe equalised.

Old Malton then began to play their best football of the season, passing the ball very well and creating chances.

It paid off with goals by Nathan Dolphin, curling the ball around the keeper with the outside of his foot, hard-working man-of-the-match midfielder Jack Mudd-Bowes, captain Mann, rounding the keeper, and Mudd-Bowes again, with a volley.

Bishopthorpe, with the breeze at their backs, came back strongly in the second half but Malt determinedly held on.
