Scarborough Athletic made it two pre-season wins out of two when they comfortably beat East Yorkshire Carnegie 5-1 on Wednesday night.

Following Saturday's success at Silver Royd against the Scarborough League Rep Team, Boro turned on the style against Jamie Waltham's newly-formed club.

Former Tadcaster, Pickering and Brid Town frontman Carl Stewart led the way after arriving for the bench, while another new face in Benny Igiehon also caught the eye as Boro ran riot in the second half.

Boss Steve Kittrick also fielded trialists Ben Small and Liam Ormsby from the start, while winger Hassan Keita continued to impress out wide.

The hosts could have found themselves a goal down after a handful of seconds when the Humber first division side had an effort on Jordan Porter's goal that sailed just over.

At the other end, Keita wriggled his way into the area before being sent crashing to the ground, but referee Jack Fewster was not impressed.

Boro grabbed the lead on the half-hour when a well-worked move created space for David Brown, who slotted in from close range.

They were hit by a stunning blow soon after, as Danny Dodds drew Porter after being sent through on goal and rolled home.

Boro showed their resilience though, with Brown finding more good areas to supply a cross for Paul Beesley, the big striker heading his second in two pre-season outings.

Kittrick introduced Stewart at the start of the second half, he was partnered by Igiehon, who boasts stays at Alfreton and Goole on his CV.

It took Stewart two minutes and one touch to make a difference.

The ball fell to him 25 yards from goal and the striker pulled the trigger in superb style to arrow an effort into the back of the net.

More chances came and went before the lively Stewart met a corner and powered a headed effort in for his second of a sweltering evening.

Brown, who had ambitions of claiming that goal after a faint touch, turned provider in the closing stages, as Igiehon bagged his first in a Boro shirt with a good finish.

Boro continued to threaten in the final moments, but a Carnegie side, who were brave enough to get the ball down and play throughout, held firm to make sure there were no more goals.
