MATTY YOUNG BAGGED A COUPLE OF TRIES LAST WEEK

Scarborough extended their unbeaten league run to four games last week as they fought back from an early 0-10 deficit to overpower visitors Beverley 32-10 and collect a bonus point with four tries and 32 unanswered points. A hugely spirited and committed performance from both sides provided top entertainment for a big turnout. Fullback Tom Ratcliffe withdrew with a late groin injury and Graeme Jeffrey who had been absent on Paternity leave stepped in and turned in a dynamic performance running from deep. Outstanding performances from No8 Isaac Faamau, lock Mikey Readman, centre Graeme Hogg, Gavin Wakeham and Devin Ibanez turned the game for the Seasiders. Tries from wing Matty Young (2), Ibanez and an interception try from skipper Matty Jones plus twelve points from the boot of Hogg rounded off a convincing 32-10 win.

PHIL WATSON & TOM RATCLIFFE RETURN TOMORROW

The Seasiders travel to Keighley tomorrow looking to extend their unbeaten run with a victory over the west Yorkshiremen who were relegated from Yorkshire One two seasons ago. They were promoted again at the end of last season and have lost only two of their league outings so far this campaign; they’re on 27 points in joint third with Scarborough and York. Last week they squeezed past struggling Heath RFC 13-12 on the road.

JORDI WAKEHAM WAS IN FINE FORM AGAINST BEVERLEY

Scarborough last met Keighley in 2014 when they were far too strong for the visitors winning 42-15 at Silver Royd; they had earlier won 17-10 on the road at Keighley. For tomorrow’s clash, second row Phil Watson who was unavailable last week returns to action whilst flyhalf Tom Harrison misses the game on vacation. Joe Lenton and Ben Martin join the squad as does Tom Ratcliffe. Wing Tom Burton dislocated his shoulder last week and will be out for a while. Tom has impressed since making his first team debut this season and I hope he is soon on the road to recovery. Also in action tomorrow are the Vikings at home to Malton & Norton at Silver Royd and the Danesmen who travel to Hull University.  DON’T FORGET ALL GAMES KICK OFF AT 2.15pm TOMORROW.

THE VALKRYIES IN ACTION AGAINST MORPETH

Last Sunday the Valkryies entertained visitors Morpeth Ladies at Silver Royd and ran in ten tries in the 62-5 win. Claire Wilkinson opened the scoring and went on to run in a hat-trick of tries. Further tries came from fullback Mel Halstead (2), Danielle Rowley, Jess Glanvill (2) and Aisling Robinson who also grabbed a couple. Halstead added six conversions for a personal tally of 22 points.
