Thornton-le-Dale Under-13s booked their place in the Scarborough & District League’s Schneider Electric U13s League Cup final with an impressive 4-0 victory over Cayton Corinthians.

Further goals from Harvey D’Alquin, Nathan Konya and Mudd, with a late penalty after D’Alquin was brought down following a great run, sealed victory.
Thornton will face Ayton Athletic in the final.

Pickering Town U13s beat Pocklington 4-1 thanks to second-half braces from strikers Luke Balderson and Luke Hornby.
The Pikes fell behind just before half-time, despite dominating, when goalkeeper Tom Poor diverted a shot onto a post only for the rebound to fall kindly to Pocklington.
But a delightful ball from Balderson saw Hornby lob the onrushing keeper and, after more pressure, Balderson finally put the Pikes ahead on 63 minutes. Two minutes later Hornby reacted first to blast home a rebound, and Balderson saved the best for last with a 25-yard strike.
