Burlington Jackdaws Under 13s have finished off the season on a high by being crowned the Scarborough League Champions once again.

But after and a below-par finish Jackdaws had to rely on their early season form to amass enough points to stave off the challenge of the likes of Thornton-le-Dale and Cayton.

Outgoing manager Chris Jenkinson said: “It was just rewards for the main core of players who have been with us from the off.

“Throughout seasons such as this it is important to stay focussed on the positives, of which there have been several. Harry Leddy has distinguished himself as being one of the top keepers in the league, Joel Ellis-Beesting has stepped up to make the centre half position his own alongside the consistent Harry Ellis.

“Sam Goacher and Jordan Ball have benefited from learning different positions. Connor McKinnry and Olly Brown have combined tough tackling with creativity all year while Ashley Armitage, Lewis Lamb and Jack Pannhausen have continued to terrorise defences week in week out leaving us with a monumental goal difference of over +50.”
