Decisive game for Sleights on Monday night

Despite farcical scenes as Sleights’ scheduled visitors on Saturday, Cayton Reserves, cried off just an hour before kick-off, the match has been rearranged for Monday (29 Apr) evening.

There were thoughts that the villagers would be handed the three points, but with the promotion race hinging on the game, the Scarborough League has ordered it to go ahead.

After rivals West Pier Reserves beat Scalby’s second string, James Howard’s men know they must beat the third division’s bottom side, who they thumped 14-1 earlier in the season, to claim a top-two spot, ahead of Pier, and grab promotion.

Kick-off on Monday is 6.30pm at Caedmon School, all welcome.
