SCARBOROUGH’S AARON WILSON WINS A LINEOUT AGAINST NORTH RIBB

Promotion chasing Scarborough moved into second spot in Yorkshire One this afternoon running in five well-worked tries without reply for a 33-0 bonus-point win against an industrious but limited North Ribblesdale side at a cold and soggy Silver Royd.

The Seasiders lost the services of prop Nino Cutino and last week’s man-of-the-match second row Phil Watson to late fitness tests and Paul Taylor started at tight-head with skipper Matty Jones reassigned to the engine room. Mikey Whitton started at loose-head.

Centre Jimmy Perrett crossed for an early touchdown, converted by Tom Ratcliffe for a 7-0 Scarborough lead in the 5th minute.

The visitors looked to level with a biting southerly wind behind them in the first quarter but fell further behind to a try from Scarborough hooker Sam Dawson in the 27th minute. Ratcliffe added the extras for 14-0.

And a slick move instigated by Ratcliffe saw skipper Matty Jones release Flanker Aaron Wilson to power over just before the break; Ratcliffe’s conversion stretching the lead to 21-0 at the break.

North Ribblesdale heads never went down in a hard-fought second half but Tries from No8 Ben Martin and a second for Jimmy Perrett converted by Ratcliffe saw Scarborough to an imperious 33-0 victory on a day when both sides did well to entertain a vocal Silver Royd turnout in bitterly cold conditions.
