The hard-working Lukasz Kosiello scored a brace for the new team, while a goal apiece from Joey Baker, Sam Green and Mitchell Collins put Rovers out of sight.

Neil Freeman and Jamie Osbourne were the scorers for Telegraph.

Rovers stand-in boss Steve Barker said:”This was an absolutely fantastic performance. Some cracking football. We moved the ball around so well against a quality side with some great footballers in it.

“Everyone put a shift in today and showed how much they wanted it.

“I am really proud of what we are trying to achieve at Rovers. The players should be proud to be a part of it.”

Flamborough 2nds head the league following a high-scoring win at basement club Goal Sports Reserves.

Jason Ridley raced to the top of the goalscoring charts by netting six to continue his incredible start to the season.

Manager’s man of the match Josh Wood added a brace, with Jack Wright, referee’s man of the match Jake Hanson, Jordan Gascoigne and Lewis Waters also scoring the goals to make up the dozen for the new league leaders.

League fixtures secretary Andrew Wilkinson said: “Home teams are reminded of their responsibility to contact both the opposition and the referee of their games by Wednesday before their weekend games.

“This ensures both teams know of the fixture, the pitch is available, the referee is notified and there are no kit clashes.

Flamborough claimed a 4-3 home win against Goal Sports in the Scarborough FA District Cup first round on Saturday.

This was the first win since the opening day of the season for Chris McNulty’s team.

On Saturday Danny Baker’s cracking cross allowed Ben Marshall to tap home at the far post after only 10 minutes, Harry Denness then missed a simple chance to head Goal Sports back on level terms.

The visitors did eventually level on 25 minutes when 16-year-old centre-back James Cullen netted on his debut after a corner.

Fine play from Lee Waters and Ryan Tranmer then created a chance for Baker to flick in Boro’s second goal before the break.

A deflected shot from Marshall and a Jason Bartley header after the interval secured the win for the hosts, but a penalty from player-boss Plumpton and a Tyson Stubbings finish from excellent work from 16-year-old sub Regan Dove gave Goal Sports late hope, but it was not enough to force a penalty shoot-out.

Baker was referee’s man of the match for Boro, while strikers Marshall and Liam Price shared the manager’s man of the match award.
