On December 30, Paul Stephenson's Under-23 side progressed to the semi-finals of the North Riding Senior Cup with victory in a scrappy game at Whitby Town.

Stephen Walker scored the only goal of the game for holders Boro in the 26th minute when connecting with a Stephen Wearne pull-back.

Our U23s return to league action this Friday afternoon, January 4, with an away game at Fulham.

Looking back to the other side of Christmas, and as our First Team won at Reading the weekend before the festivities, Mark Tinkler's U18s progressed as group winners in the Premier League Cup after drawing 2-2 at home to closest rivals Tottenham Hotspur. 

Daniel Dodds and Alberto Balde scored for Boro, who secured the necessary point despite the dismissal of Cain Sykes.

Our U18s are back in league action this Saturday, away to Stoke.
