York Schoolboys Under 13’ travelled to Scarborough in their penultimate league game of the season, and in early spring sunshine York started well, dominating the early stages of the game with the York defence of James Hanson, Jamie Higginbotham, Ollie Smith and Nick Hutton keeping a high line and not allowing Scarborough to break out of their own half. York’s early pressure paid off on 12 minutes when a Danny Allinson corner was converted by Jamie Higginbotham from close range.
York continued to apply the pressure and efforts from Lucas Wilson and Charlie Jebson King forced good saves from the Scarborough keeper. Scarborough then started to exert some pressure on the York defence and forced a good one on one save from York keeper Patrick Randall. The visitors doubled their lead on the stroke of half time, winning the ball in midfield allowing Lucas Wilson to slide the ball to Rob Guilfoyle who raced past the Scarborough defence to score Yorks second.
York started the second half as they had finished the first applying pressure to the Scarborough defence, and nearly scoring after 30 seconds of the restart following good link up play between Dom Jackson and Charlie Jebson King.
Following seven minutes of the second half York increased their lead when Manni De Nobriga squared the ball across the face of goal allowing Joe Crosby to tap home from close range.
York were now rampant and soon made it 4-0 when good work from Allinson in midfield was followed with a defence splitting pass allowing Manni De Nobriga to thump his shot past the Scarborough keeper.
York increased the pressure and soon made it 5-0 following good work from Robbie Simpson on the left, who found Jebson King and his clever ball set up Crosby to score his second.
The scoring was complete when another Danny Allinson corner was met at the far post by Lucas Wilson who’s header found the back of the Scarborough net to make the final score 6-0.
Following a run of tough games over recent weeks this was a relatively straight forward and deserved win for York, and with one league fixture remaining are in the mix for the league title, although other results need to go in their favour.
