Burlington Jackdaws Under-14s put in a polished performance to claim an 8-0 home win against Tickton at Gypsy Road.

Despite Burlington’s prowess, Tickton, lying at the foot of the Hull & District Youth League table, had an uphill battle, and put in a promising display as they rebuild for next season.

Goals came courtesy of Charley Brown, Riley Jemison, Joshua Garbutt and Brandon Nalton.

Frankie Gascoigne added a header, as well as Lewis Williamson with his season’s first, along with a cool penalty from Jed Oyston who sent them on their way.

Marcus Gascoigne chose Nalton as his man of the match, and the Jackdaws move now onto tonight’s home game with Cottingham.

Bridlington Rangers Panthers Under-14s signed off their season with a superb 8-4 win at Flamborough.

The hosts looked strong in the early stages and were unlucky not to take the lead, however they found Lewis Sellers in fantastic form, providing many last-ditch tackles.

Panthers began to gain a foothold in the game, Johnny Murray providing telling passes, and their breakthrough came with Alfie Thompson’s deadly finish from the edge of the area to break the deadlock.

Rangers added a second soon after when Harry Pearson reacted quickly and latched onto a loose ball to drive into the bottom corner.

The third came from Jamie Murray as he broke clear and fired in an unstoppable shot with his weaker left foot.

The work-rate and strength of Declan Potts in midfield began to allow Joe Pilmoor to break forward, he was unlucky not to cap a cracking display when he saw a superb shot hit the post.

The goal of the game came when Rebekah Pratley sent Cameron Connelly free on the left and he provided a fine cross for Bryan Goodall to volley home at the near post.

Flamborough kept pressing and were provided a penalty which they slotted in on the stroke of half-time.

The beginning of the second half saw Boro change their formation and score two quick goals.

Reece Smithson made a breathtaking save to keep Panthers’ nose in front when the Flamborough striker was clean through.

Rangers eased the pressure with a well-taken second by Jamie Murray.

Elliot Day proved his dead-ball excellence again with a brilliant goal straight from the corner, his second this season.

Boro’s fourth split Panthers’ last goals when Jamie Murray completed his hat-trick with a brilliant reaction header and Goodall’s well taken second was a solo cracker.

Panthers managers man of the match was Joe Pilmoor, with Thompson the parents’ man of the match.
