THE Motormen followed their solid win against Leigh RMI with a dramatic last-kick victory at the McCain Stadium on Saturday.

Former Welsh Premier League player John Lawless hit the winner - his first goal for Vauxhall - to maintain his side's strong start to the season.

Manager Carl Macauley, pictured below, said: 'It was a challenging game.

'We knew how good Scarborough were and they will be very strong in this league.

'But we are up at the moment and have a lot of ability in attack. I was proud that the players lifted themselves for one last effort and it was the best time to score because once the ref gave the goal he blew up for full time so it was actually the last kick of the game.

'We have to keep our focus now because we have made a good start but if we concede silly goals in this division we will throw it away.'

Macauley had prepared his players thoroughly for a tough battle against Scarborough, who just seven years ago were playing in the Football League.

The game lacked the attacking drive of Vauxhall's curtain-raiser against Leigh, with both sides matching up well.

Lee Furlong and Anthony Wright had the Motors' best opportunities of the first period but flashed their shots wide before Jamie Vermiglio headed over for the home side and visiting keeper Sean Lake was forced to make a good save to deny defender Ashley Lyth.

In the second half, Vauxhall captain Steve McNulty headed wide before Furlong wasted a great chance when he shot wide after finding himself one-on-one with the keeper.

The Seadogs had the better of the second half with Vermiglio drawing more saves from Lake.

Motors have started this season confidently and managed to muster one last attack. Furlong picked out Lawless from the right and the former TNS player stroked home the winner from just inside the area to stun the hosts.
