Five-star Cameron

Have your say

THE battle for promotion hotted up in division two this weekend, with Tonics, Staxton and Hunmanby Hornets all boosting their chances with victories.

Hunmanby Hornets hot-shot Cameron Dobson banged in his side’s first five goals as they surged to a 7-2 win at Filey Flyers.

Striker Dobson’s first goal was a tap-in, his second was a 25-yard volley while on the run.

The Hornets man of the match completed his hat-trick with a neat turn and shot just inside the penalty area.

Will Hunter pulled a goal back for Flyers, but Dobson’s next strike -a chipped shot over the keeper - restored the three-goal lead.

Dobson’s fifth and final goal was a stunning chip from just inside the Flyers half, after spotting the keeper off his line.

Ricky Tomlinson forced home the sixth goal for the visitors then Dan Baldry thumped in a 40-yard screamer to make it 7-1. Paul Nuttall scored a late second consolation for Flyers, who had Tom Haxby in top form.

Staxton surged into third spot with a 3-1 home success against Strongwood Reserves.

Mark Dove opened the scoring for the home side, then Jonny Blakeston added a second with a cracking strike from 20 yards out.

Andy Moore secured the win for the villagers, Strongwood grabbing a late consolation.

Centre-back Matty Turnbull earned the man-of-the-match award for Staxton, with Sean Dodson impressing in midfield.

Tonics kept their promotion hopes alive with a 5-1 home win against FC Filey.

Dan Layton opened the scoring after 15 minutes, and seconds after the re-start right-back James Seymour doubled Tonics’ lead with a superb 30-yard right-footed effort.

Filey hit back to make it 2-1, but Tonics were soon back on top thanks to a fine run and shot from Paul Mills.

Layton volleyed in the fourth to seal the win and the striker then completed his hat-trick with a clinical finish.

Seymour earned the man-of-the-match award for a strong display in defence.

Drew McCoubrey banged in five goals as Trafalgar Reserves strolled to a 10-1 home win against Wreyfield.

Lewis Goodacre also smacked in a hat-trick for the hosts, with Jamie Patterson and Alex Sheader also on target.
