The Scarborough Pirates rugby league team claimed two wins in a home double bill on Saturday, beating Birstall 60-12 in the first summer league game of the season and the winter team defeating Hull Wyke A 34-16 in the Council Trophy.

Player-coach Adam Lee said: “Both teams gave the fans at Eastway an entertaining day of rugby league.

“In the first game we won 60-12, with the stand-out players James Millward and Jamie Cornish.

“In the second match we earned a hard-fought 34-16 win with Nathan Hakings and Joe Messruther impressing.”

Pirates are training on Wednesday night at Eastway, 6pm start.

Lee added: “We have two games again on Saturday 19th April so there is plenty to be involved in. There is also a fixture against the Royal Engineers on Thursday April 24th so if anyone wants to play they should contact me.”
