Needing a win to secure the Driffield League Division One title, Mermaid United Old Boys brought in Mark Purvis and manager Tim Moore.

From the start, Mermaid placed Little Driffield in their own hal and the pressure paid off after 20 minutes when Danny Brown scored the opener.The away team looked in total control and just before the break Purvis nodded home to double the lead.

Little Driffield came out in the second half a different team, not willing to roll over, and pressed forward at every opportunity. They nearly got a goal back but keeper Murtagh pulled off a fine save, tipping the ball over the bar.

But, with time running out Mermaid got their third through Jamie Osborne.
