SHINKS STRIKE SHOCKS BORO
BURSCOUGH 1 SCARBORO 0
BURSCOUGH pulled off a major shock as the division’s bottom club defeated Scarborough Athletics courtesy of Anthony Shinks’ early goal.
Shinks found the net for the hosts as early as the second minute with an excellent freekick.
Elliott Nevitt almost added to the hosts’ lead after the break but his chip over the keeper scraped the bar.
But in the second half it was virtually all Scarborough. They had the ball in the net but it was ruled out for a push on the Burscough keeper while Shinks also cleared off his own goalline.
The visitors continued to push but Burscough managed to hold on for a valuable win.
