Howden AFC 1-6 Scarborough Athletic Under-16s
Scarborough Athletic Under-16s ended the year with a fantastic 6-1 away win at Howden AFC.
From the first whistle Boro were on the front foot and playing some attractive flowing football, camping themselves in the Howden half for long periods.
The early pressure finally paid off on 12 minutes when a long range effort from Aidan Thurston nestled in the top corner of the net for a deserved 1-0 lead. Boro were now in total control of the game and were producing some of their best football of the season so far and made it 2-0 just before the half hour mark with another great move finished off with a Sam Pattison strike finding the bottom left hand corner of the net. Soon after this Boro were unlucky not to extend the lead further when two great chances from James Skelton and Owen Wilson both came back off the Howden woodwork, but they went into the break with a deserved 2-0 lead.
Scarborough started the second half as they did the first and extended the lead to 4-0 with two quick fire goals straight after the break. The first from James Skelton and a second for Aidan Thurston put the game beyond the reach of Howden. A rare defensive error from an otherwise very solid Boro back four handed a consolation goal for Howden. Boro made up for this soon after when Tom Collins slotted the ball cooly past the advancing Howden keeper to make it 5-1.
The Athletic juniors capped off a fine all round team performance with another great move finished by James Clifford to end the game with a superb 6-1 victory, setting the team up nicely for a semi-final clash at home to Flinton Flyers straight after the Christmas break.

Howden AFC 2-3 Scarborough Athletic Under-16s
The Under-16s travelled to Howden AFC for their Quarter-Final tie in the KO Cup.
A bright start by both sides saw a very competitive opening 15 mins with both sides creating chances but it was Boro who opened the scoring on the 20 minute mark when some neat play down the left saw James Skelton whip in a pinpoint cross finding Sam Pattison on the far post to fire home from close range.
Howden nearly forced an equaliser just before half-time when a neat chip forced an excellent save from keeper Tom Cammish just managing to tip the ball onto the bar and the retreating defender hooked the ball to safety.
Howden started the second half well and scored a deserved equaliser from a corner with a towering header from the centre forward. The home side nearly found themselves in front when a superb long-range effort struck the crossbar and came straight back into the arms of Boro keeper Tom Cammish.
This seemed to kick start Boro and within ten minutes they were back in front with two quick fire goals. The first was another great move down the left which saw James Skelton power a shot from the edge of the box past the Howden keeper. Boro were now pilling on the pressure and quickly found a third as an unstoppable strike by Sam Pattison nestled in the top corner of the net to give Boro some breathing space.
Scarborough were now creating a number of excellent chances the best of which was a great Tom Brackenbury effort which came back off the crossbar. Howden did force a late consolation goal but Scarborough held out for a deserved win and a place in the semi-final draw.

Scarborough Athletic Under-16s started the season with a 7-3 defeat at the hands of Hessle Sporting Spitfires.
Athletic started brightly and took the lead when James Skelton showed good composure to chip over the advancing keeper.
The Spitfires were not behind for long though and quickly equalised, but Owen Wilson regained the lead for Boro with a superb header from a pin point Sam Pattison cross. Hessle again responded and equalised before the break to make it 2-2 at half-time in a closely fought first half.
The second half was a completely different story, as Boro struggled to get going. The Spitfires scored five goals to run out comfortable 7-3 winners in the end. Athletic did add a third goal as Tom Brackenbury got the final touch following a goalmouth scramble, did it could not save them from a heavy defeat.
