Hesler­ton Un­der-15s seal win

The Scarborough Evening News - - SPORTS AGENDA -

Hesler­ton Un­der-15s made their de­but in the York Mi­nor League on Thurs­day with a win against Stam­ford Bridge.

The home side scored in the first minute when Ol­lie Stan­ton crossed for Ro­man But­ter­field to vol­ley home.

Stam­ford clawed one back with a penalty be­fore tak­ing the lead from a cor­ner kick.

The sec­ond half saw the Blues equalise when Mor­gan Ken­drew danced into the box and fired low past the keeper.

Hesler­ton piled on the pres­sure and with 10 min­utes re­main­ing mid­fielder Jamie Atkinson hit a peach of a shot from 25 yards that sailed into the top cor­ner.

Man of the match for Hesler­ton was Fin­lay May, his best per­for­mance to date. Hesler­ton’s new Un­der-14s team put in a barn­storm­ing dis­play against a well-drilled Old Mal­ton side but fell to a 3-1 de­feat.

In their first match to­gether Hesler­ton gelled quickly, with new faces Sam Farkas and Dy­lan Fawcett fly­ing into their tack­les.

Stung by con­ced­ing a goal, Oli Lahiff cre­ated the equaliser with a chipped through­ball, which al­lowed Jay­den Isaac to fin­ish calmly past the keeper.

The in­tro­duc­tion of Ben Peckitt and Char­lie Richard­son added fresh en­ergy, the lat­ter work­ing a cou­ple of open­ings down the wing, though Old Mal­ton struck back with chances of their own.

De­spite heroic cen­tral de­fen­sive per­for­mances by Ih­san Eroglu and man of the match Tom Owen, it was the home side who even­tu­ally ground out the win.
