Armthorpe Rovers Under 13s overcame an early setback to beat Branton Juniors 8-2 and maintain their perfect start in the Premier Division.

A determined Branton team worked hard to stop Armthorpe’s passing game and were rewarded with an early goal.

Toby Wainwright equalised but Branton re-took the lead from a move which started with a quick throw.

Matthew Craig’s corner deflected in off a Branton player to make it 2-2 before the break, before Harvey Finlayson’s close range finish after the re-start changed the complexion of the game.

Evan Fortune-West (2) increased the lead, before further goals from Craig, Will Railton and Brad Gardiner.
