Scarborough Football Scholarship’s first XI were edged out by Newcastle Elite Academy in a thrilling Cup game that finished 4-3.

Robbie Scarborough scored two of the Scholars’ goals, with Chris Pearson adding the other.

They were stung by an injury to keeper Lewis Maw in the second half, he had to be replaced between the sticks by Brad Wood.

Josh Welburn was the star of the show for the Scholars at centre-back.

Coach Ryan Blott said: “It was an even game, it was just individual errors that cost us.

“Every time we managed to haul our way back into the game, we allowed them to pull clear again.”
