YORK Schoolboys Under-14s returned to league action with a 3-1 win over Leeds.

The first real chance fell to York when Joe Crosby slipped a clever ball to Manni De Nobriga, whose effort forced a corner off the Leeds keeper.

They took a deserved lead on 20 minutes when Ben Barker Spencer linked well with Lucas Wilson. His defence splitting pass set up De Nobriga to fire home from 12 yards.

The second half started with Leeds on the front foot and, against the run of play, York extended their lead with a wonderful goal.

The youngsters broke from defence with Lucas Wilson allowed to run with the ball to the half-way line. His pass found Crosby, whose first time ball sent Nobriga through to calmly slot the ball past the advancing Leeds keeper.

With 15 minutes remaining, Leeds pulled a goal back with an outstanding strike from 25-yards which gave keeper Patrick Randall no chance in the York net.

They responded well, though, and with ten minutes remaining Dan Stevenson broke down the York right. De Nobriga's shot was saved but the rebound fell to Barker Spencer, who calmly slotted home.

Magnificent York U12s put seven past Worksop.

The visitors went in front on seven minutes when a pass from midfielder Will Hollings found Elliot Heath inside the box. He turned and shot, leaving the keeper stranded.

The Minstermen were playing the conditions far better and, from a throw-in deep inside the home side's half, Hollins put Jack Lowe clear and the winger made no mistake - slotting the ball away with ease.

The third came when Taylor Bell's free kick found its way through the wall and into the corner of the net and, enjoying their best 20 minutes of the season, it was no surprise when Lowe ran on to a through ball that opened up the Worksop defence and slotted home for his second and York's fourth.

Worksop weren't producing many meaningful attacks and, with their midfield all out of position, Lewis Humphreys scored his first of the game. He turned provider for the sixth, cutting the ball back for Heath to bag his brace with a half-volley.

The seventh arrived when a free-kick found Hollings in the box.

He looked to have scored with a fine header only for the keeper to get a hand to it. He could only parry the ball straight into the path of Humphreys to tap-in for his second and finish the scoring.
