East Coast travelled to play BORO on Sunday in 2 friendly fixtures.
Middlesbrough 7 v 5 East Coast
The first saw the men’s team take on a mix of Boro first team, trialists and reserve players.
After a poor first half showing East Coast were down 4 v 1 but a more spirited display in the second, including a Jamie Osbrone hatrick, saw coast hit back. Kieran Link also replied but Boro eventually came off winners 7 v 5.
Debutant from Whitby, Phil Spencer 19, impressed for East Coast which is good for the club. With players from Scarborough, Whitby & Bridlington on show the club is extending its pull of players and is benefitting from the links that have been made.
Middlesbrough U 15′s 10 v 2 East Coast U 15′s
Middlesbrough were too strong for East Coast’s young team in their first ever game. Coach Adam Stubbs has done a great job putting the team together in the last 3 months but inexpereince showed in their first game.
Middlesbrough took 2 or 3 fewer touches on the ball and passed it well to create opportunities which they took well.
East Coast had thier moments one 10 minute spell in the second half but could not find a way past the Boro keeper who produced a string a fine saves.
Thanks to Damon and the team for running the day for us.
