Newly-formed Market Rasen Under 13s secured their first Mid-Lincs League win of the season at their third attempt with a convincing 16-2 victory over Saxilby 13s at Rase Park.

With great home support, an early goal from top scorer George Balmer settled the nerves and after controlling most of the first period, the hosts were good value for their 4-1 half-time lead.

In the second half the confidence grew with Rasen using the full width of the pitch and the goals were shared around between nine players. Notably, George Balmer netted four times, while Ruari Newman claimed a hat-trick.

This weekend, Rasen U13s are away to Boston Community.
