Pocklington Town 1-2 Scarborough Athletic
Scarborough Athletic Under-19s delivered an excellent performance to beat Pocklington Town Under-19s 2-1 on Tuesday night.
Boro started positively and had the better of the early exchanges, playing just one up front and packing the midfield to deny Pocklington the time and space to unpick the Scarborough defence down the wings.
The pressure and possession paid off for Steve Roberts’ side as they went 1-0 up after a corner was knocked it down by Liam Mancrief for Callum Gravestock to find the back of the net.
Pocklington were quick to respond and equalised just before half-time. The Pock striker went clean through and finished well despite best efforts of Boro goalkeeper Callum Martin and a desperate attempt on the line by Gravestock.
Boro regrouped at half-time and started the second half on the front foot to retake the lead. The goal came when Regan Hewitt curled in a superb shot with the outside of his foot from 25 yards to make it 2-1.
Athletic were forced to defend staunchly as Pocklington pushed for an equaliser in the last 20 minutes, but Boro held on to claim all three points.
Boro Under-19s manager Steve Roberts was delighted with the display.
He said: “We were excellent, the lads worked really hard to see its through to the win.
“We had lots of young players involved, with Callum Martin, Kieran Smith and George Hirst all starting along with Jack White up front. With only 12 players available everyone had to just get on with it. Noah Young came on to make his debut to keep us going until the final whistle.”
Roberts was pleased to gain revenge on Pocklington for a defeat last month.
“We played really well to turn it round after the 4-2 defeat we suffered earlier in the season. We’ve got a good balance in the squad with a number of youngsters coming in and stepping up like Keir Smith at centre-back, together with more experienced lads like Callum Jennings, Nathan Vernon and Callum Gravestock.”

Scarborough Athletic 3-0 Scarborough Football Scholarship
Scarborough Athletic Under-19s won for the first time this season with a 3-0 victory against Scarborough Football Scholarship.
Steve Roberts’ side began positively and look an early lead when Liam Mancrief stroked in after capitalising on a mistake in the Scholarship defence.
The Scholars nearly pulled level though after 18 minutes as a Benny Davis header struck the underside of the crossbar and bounced down but was cleared away. The Scholars showed they were more than a match for their older opponents and the game was an even tussle on a warm evening.
Boro skipper Callum Jennings rode a few tackles from midfield to jinx his way into the box, but could not get enough power behind his shot.
Scholars defender Ryan Wagstaff was then on hand to deny Boro extending their lead with an excellent tackle at the far post.
Nathan Vernon missed a guilt edged opportunity to double the lead with a bullet header that just cleared the crossbar.
The game was settled by a second goal for the hosts after a counter attack down the left, with Jacob Codling racing clear to finish under the keeper.
A third quickly followed as Mancrief notched his second of the night with a cool finish to seal the three points for Boro.

Pocklington Town U19s 4-2 Scarborough Athletic U19s
Scarborough Athletic Under-19s began the new season with a 4-2 defeat to Pocklington Town Under-19s.
The game began in balmy conditions at Pocklington, with Boro including Callum Jennings as skipper and a mix of players involved with the U21s setup last season together with a number of new players.
It was a scrappy opening with both sides struggling to string a series of passes together.
Boro nearly took the lead when Jennings whipped in an excellent free-kick from the right that was nearly headed in by Nathan Vernon, forcing a point blank save from the Pocklington keeper to keep it out.
Shortly afterwards Scarborough took the lead when Josh Young outpaced the Pock defence to roll confidently past the goalkeeper.
This sparked Pocklington into life and the scores were quickly levelled when Jake Dunham scored an excellent solo goal, racing down the left before cutting in and squeezing the ball in at the near post.
Boro keeper Callum Martin then saved his side with four superb saves in quick succession, flinging himself all over as Pocklington pulled the trigger at will in the Athletic penalty area, in the end bravely going in at the feet of a Pock player to smother the ball.
Pocklington then took control and a second goal followed as a static Boro defence allowed Joe Rawcliffe time and space to convert a cross from the right.
A third goal for Pocklington put Boro firmly on the back post as Rawcliffe bustled through the centre, holding off a couple of defenders to slide under Martin.
Just before half-time a hanging ball to the far post was nearly headed in at the back post by Boro defender Callum Gravestock, but he could not get enough of the header to force it goalwards.
There was little to choose between the two sides for much of the second half, with chances for both sides as the game became stretched.
Pocklington continued to press forward, with Matty Mulhern driving from midfield into the box before skewing his shot wide.
Callum Martin was forced to scramble a ball away for a corner as a shot was smashed at goal from close range.
Boro attempted to up the tempo and get back in the game, with Jennings forcing the Pocklington keeper to claw away a cross under pressure with a looping cross.
Pocklington were not ready to shut up shop though and they added a fourth as a long range shot from Paddy Wintie spun off Boro defender Callum Gravestock and over the despairing jump of Martin in the Scarborough goal.
Boro hit back with a second goal almost immediately as Jennings went through on goal and lifted over the onrushing Pocklington keeper to make it 4-2.
There was still time for a final chance and it was a spectacular one, a Pocklington shot-cum-cross from out on the right that flicked off the Boro crossbar and bounced away.
There were plenty of positives for Under-19s management duo Steve Roberts and Luke Tinker to take from the game in the first outing for their side.
The Under-19s are next in action against Scarborough Football Scholarship on Tuesday 13 September at Pocklington, kicking off at 7:45pm.
Boro: Martin, Sellars, Hewitt, Vernon, Gravestock, Mancrief, Howley, Whitehead, Young, Jennings, Welburn
