Boro cruise past Sheffield FC to advance

Scarborough Athletic produced a five-star display to beat Evo-Stik South side Sheffield FC 5-0 in the Integro League Cup on Tuesday night.

The star of the show was Emile Sinclair, as he netted a hat-trick to send Steve Kittrick's side through to face Whitby Town in the next round. 

In the run-up the Boro manager suggested he would ring the changes, and he did not hold back by bringing in eight replacements to the starting eleven.

Boro: Morgan (Taylor 55), Johnson, Merris (c), Daly, Stimpson, Hewitt (Turnbull 63), Nelthorpe (Logan 68'), Binns, Sinclair, Osborne, Cadman

Unused Subs: Dean, Valentine

Goals: Stimpson (16'), Sinclair (44', 55', 88'), Logan (76') 


Sheffield FC: Ingham, Turner, Dawson, J. Turnbull, Howe, Rose, Roney (c), Brownell, Purkiss, Dawes, Waller

Subs: Mawson, Souter (GK), Robson, Ibrahim, Algar

Attendance: 504






Boro Boss Steve Kittrick:

We made eight changes from Saturday, but we looked good and organised. We played with a smile on our faces and comfortably won 5-0 in the end. 

Emile's done really well, he's just come out of full-time football and it takes a bit of time to settle down for him. 

Everybody has stepped in and done well. It shows that if you have a good squad and you can keep them happy, then that'll help us.

The squad will thin out as we go on. Rob (Youhill) wants to play every week, and we've fetched Max in so I respect his decision to play elsewhere and I hope it's a success for him.

There're all tough games now, we've got to show them the respect they deserve but we want to keep this run going.
