Brooklyn Under-12s are now hunting trophy glory after clinching promotion to division one of the York Mitchell Sports League with a 6-2 win over Pocklington.

Needing victory to gain promotion, Brooklyn went a goal down but a deflected effort from Bradley Freer sent the Pock ‘keeper the wrong way and then Robbie Butler put them ahead from a rebound after Josh Berry’s shot was well saved.

Morgan Fox grabbed his second of the season with a half-volley before a stroke of luck brought the fourth goal, a clearance from Freer bouncing harshly over the helpless ‘keeper.

Pock snatched a goal back before Berry drilled a beautiful half-volley from 18 yards into the top corner. Stand-in centre-back Jack Boyd went up front for the last five minutes and tapped into an empty net after tremendous play from Butler.

Brooklyn finished levelled on points with Woodthorpe Wanderers but had a far greater goal-difference so claimed second place behind Fulford.

They now have two cup finals. The first is the York FA Acaster Steel Cup against division one champions York Cubs on Sunday, May 1, at Poppleton (11am), and the second is in the League Cup against division one runners-up Heworth, at York City’s Bootham Crescent on May 3 (7.30pm). All support is welcome.

Brooklyn U15s boosted their title hopes by taking valuable points off promotion rivals York RI with a deserved 3-1 victory.

A win at Poppleton in the last game should now secure promotion and hopefully the division two crown.

Brooklyn started well and Brett Crowe finished well from the edge of the area. Nathan Jackson made it 2-0 with a tremendous finish before RI, after forcing three fine saves from Adam Hawes, pulled a goal back.

A change of formation in the second half restricted RI to few chances, though man-of-the-match Hawes had to make two more superb saves before Crowe, who led the line well with the excellent Steve Hoggard, scored from the spot after being fouled in the area.

Man-of-the-match Gabby McGill bagged all four goals as Pickering U11s beat Wiggington Grasshoppers 4-2 in their final game of the season.

A top team performance gave the Pikes a well deserved victory.

Brooklyn U8s Tigers lost 1-0 at Dunnington in their last game of the season. Matthew Lock had several attempts on goal, while Ben Johnson in midfield, Oliver Towse and Sam Honey in defence, and Riley Howe and Alfie Kellet in goal did well.

The friendly that followed saw Brooklyn ‘loan’ some players to a smaller Dunnington squad, and two of them, Oliver Towse and Emily Cooper, scored in a 2-0 home win. Coooper’s goal was a fine half-volley.

The Tigers did not win a game all season but have improved greatly.

Brooklyn U8s Lions lost 3-0 at Dunnington despite great defending from man-of-the-match Eden Cross.

The final of the Scarborough & District FA Under-14s Minor Cup between Goldsborough United and Fishburn Park will be played on Tuesday, April 26, at Whitby Town’s Turnbull ground (6.15pm).
