Boro started the new year with a bang, scoring seven without reply against Hall Road Rangers at home.
Before I go any further, here are the stats updates links following the game:
Now the science bit!
Boro’s seven goal win is the second time they have scored seven or more this season – the first being the 10-0 win away at Lincoln. Boro have now scored 82 goals in 26 league games so far – a record of 3.15 goals per game.
Their goal difference of +49 is now the best in the NCEL Premier Division, while the Seadogs have now an unbeaten league run of 11 matches, and have won the last seven in a row, scoring 28 goals in those seven games.
Tony Hackworth scored two goals, his 24th and 25th for the club – including his first penalty. He became the third Boro penalty taker this season – the club seemingly having a miss one and you are out system for penalty takers, after Ollie Banks and Ryan Blott had both missed penalties recently.
Pete Davidson scored three goals from midfield, to take his tally to 5 for the club. It was just the second Boro hat-trick this season – the other actually being a four-goal haul by Ryan Blott at Lincoln.
So, Boro remain top of the league, with a four point gap over second placed Bridlington Town. Here’s hoping the runs continue on the road at Thackley and Glasshoughton over the next two weeks.

Boro have also signed former Derry City, Carlisle United and York City defender Darren Kelly.
He will become the 125th Scarborough Athletic player when he makes his debut.
