Sleights progressed in the Scarborough FA Harbour Cup making it 10 wins out of 11 this season.

Ed Turner and Sam Leadley’s men have now beaten both Scalby sides after despatching of the club’s first team this weekend by a 7-0 scoreline.

Charlie Smith put them ahead on five minutes after good work from Taylor Humble.

Sadly Humble suffered an ACL injury in the build-up which may sideline him until the new year.

It was cagey until the closing stages of the first half where Smith slammed in three quick-fire strikes.

Top-scorer Jack Henshaw struck after the restart with substitute Joe Hugill and an own goal ensuring Sleights struck seven.
