Royal Oak’s records have been deleted, with just league games to play, which means nobody can catch the Tigers, who have enjoyed a superb debut season in the top-flight.

A seven-goal thriller saw Yarm and Eaglescliffe come from 3-0 down to stun Staithes Athletic in the North Riding Football League Premier Division on Wednesday evening.

Switched to Redcar Town, Athletic raced into a clear lead, but their visitors rallied as Dan Jones’ penalty and Calum Stevens’ goal reduced the arrears.

Anth Brown equalised before Cameron Wild nodded home a dramatic winner.

In the First Division, Redcar Athletic Reserves moved second after a comfortable win over Whitby Fishermens Society.

Mark Anderson notched for the Lythe-based side, but Redcar’s struck through Alex Anderson’s hat-trick.

James Ascough and Jake Lance also found the net for Athletic.

In Division Two of the Scarborough & District Saturday League on Friday evening, Fishburn Park Reserves completed their season with a 4-0 home win against Ayton.

Goldsborough United ended their season on a high note with a 4-0 home win against FC Rosette on Wednesday night.

A Dave Welham brace and an effort from Ben Watson put United 3-0 up at the interval.

Tommy Jobling added the fourth in the second half for the home side.
