Holt FC had a double reason to celebrate on Sunday in their Scarborough and District Minor League fixtures.

Not only did their under-11s bag their first win of the season, but their under-16s grabbed their first success in two years.

The under-16s had striker Kieran Grzesiowski to thank for what was only their seventh victory since their formation nine years ago when he fired in five goals in the 6-0 home win against Goldsborough United.

After dominating the opening period, Holt only had a Grzesiowski goal to show for their pressure.

Things came good after the break though as Grzesiowski banged in another four, with midfielder John Creighton wrapping up the scoring.

The whole team impressed for Holt, though James Purdy, Dan Hitchcock and James Reddish stood out.

The under-11s were also celebrating after their 2-0 win against Heslerton.

After a goalless first half, Jamie McDonald opened the scoring for the Holt lads.

An 18-yard screamer from Jackson Scarlett sealed the win for Holt with five minutes remaining.

Declan Banks performed well in midfield, while winger Josh Pybus also caught the eye.

Hunmanby under-10s lost out 2-1 at home to Cayton Corinthians.

The hosts were looking to get back to winning ways in this game and all was looking well when, after a bout of pressure, a low fizzing cross sent in by Dylan Barnett from the right wing, which Cayton’s defence failed to deal with, allowed Jake Jordan to stab home from a rebound off the keeper.

Cayton’s equaliser came from a good through ball to Michael Cairns who finished with aplomb.

Hunmanby lost their way a little bit in the second half and Cayton started to dominate the midfield, their battling qualities paid off, when, a quick counter-attack saw Matty Roberts’ strike seal the three-point haul for the visitors.
