Lealholm are looking to maintain their impressive form when they do battle with Sinnington at the weekend in the Gordon Harrison Memorial Trophy.

Since joining the Newitts.com Beckett League at the start of the season, Lealholm have won four of their five Division Two games and have drawn one.

They maintained their push for a debut-season promotion on Saturday when they crushed Pickering Knights 12-0.

Mark McCarthy and Daniel Stonehouse led the way a hat-trick each for the Whitby outfit, with Brad Lewis and Josh Hodgson adding two apiece. Arron Leeman and Nathan Gibson scored the other two goals.

McCarthy has now hit 15 this season, while Stonehouse has contributed 10.

Saturday’s game against Sinnington will be more of a challenge, as the Sinners currently ply their trade in the division above.

They are fourth in the top flight of the Beckett League and are among the favourites to land the title.
