Ryedale Sports 0 Newlands Park 5 (Jenkinson 2, Exley 2, Moon)
Champions Newlands Park got off to a perfect start in their game at Ryedale Sports Club, securing a 5-0 victory at Pickering.
The visitors raced out of the blocks and played some superb, free-flowing football, taking an early lead thanks to a cool finish from central midfielder Stefan Moon.
His central midfield partner Danny Jenkinson doubled the lead on 15 minutes, applying the finishing touch to a great team move.
Only a string of fine saves from the Ryedale keeper kept the Newlands strikes out, but the pressure from the visitors bore fruit as Sean Exley smashed a shot into the top right-hand corner of the net from 18 yards.
Ryedale came out stronger in the second half, but despite having possession they failed to pull a goal back and the visitors came back into the game, scoring twice in the closing 15 minutes to secure the points.
Newlands hit Ryedale on the break in the 75th minute Exley netting his second with a first-time finish and in the closing stages Jenkinson completed his brace after a fine run from Exley’s surging run set him up.
Striker Exley and Jenkinson shared the man of the match award for Newlands, while teenage cub Jamie Deyes also impressed for the victors.
Edgehill 4 (Collins 2, Jowett, G Hepples) Seamer Sports 2 (Lawton, Pinder)
A Danny Collins brace helped Edgehill earn a 4-2 home win against Paddy Parke’s Seamer Sports outfit.
Neither side could break the deadlock in a very keenly-contested first half.
Jackson Jowett, who was the hosts’ man of the match on his debut after joining from Commercial, smashed in the opener from 20 yards, and Collins then broke through to double Edgehill’s lead.
Seamer’s star man Gaz Lawton, who started on the wing but moved up front, held off a challenge and smacked a shot into the top right-hand corner of the net to give the villagers a glimmer of hope.
Collins’ second soon extinguished this hope, and Steve Clegg’s troops then spurned several chances to kill the game off and were nearly made to pay for it.
Debutant Rob Pinder pulled a goal back for the visitors and the home defence were then forced to clear two chances off the line and they were grateful when Gary Hepples fired in the fourth to wrap up the win for Edgehill.
Filey Town 6 (L Flynn 2, Dobson 2, Pinder) Ayton 0
A stunning second-half display from a new-look Filey Town team saw Lalan Flynn, James Pinder and debutant Cameron Dobson score two apiece in a 6-0 win against Ayton.
After a goalless first half, and a disappointing performance from the hosts, it only took Town eight minutes of the second half to surge into a 3-0 lead.
Another new recruit, Danny Price was fouled in the area, and Gary Wardell’s penalty was saved by the Ayton keeper only for Flynn to follow up and slide the ball into the net.
Two minutes later Liam Sugden set up Dobson for his first goal for Town and then Dobson turned creator for young striker Pinder as they went 3-0 up.
Pinder then made it four from Price’s pass and Dobson’s solo effort put it beyond Ayton’s reach.
Dobson played Pinder through in injury-time and another fine save from the Ayton keeper Flynn reacted quickest to make it 6-0.
Town boss Jay Taylor hailed his entire team as the winners of the man of the match award for a cracking second-half performance.
Ayton Reserves 1 (Milburn) Eastway Sports 6 (Taylor 4, D Darling 2)
A four-goal blast from striker Mark Taylor fired league newcomers Eastway Sports to a 6-1 win at Ayton Reserves.
Taylor scored twice before half-time and then completed his hat-trick early in the second half, right-winger David Darling adding a fourth to put the result beyond the villagers.
Chris Milburn pulled a goal back for Mark Plumpton’s team but a Taylor header and a cracking solo effort from Darling - who ran from halfway before smashing the goal into the net -
capped a perfect start for Barton Newham’s Eastway team.
Taylor was man of the match but Darling and 16-year-old midfielder Jack James also shone for the victors.
Seamer Sports Reserves 2 (C Myerscough, own goal) Falsgrave Athletic 0
A new-look Seamer Sports Reserves side got off to a winning start, seeing off visitors Falsgrave Athletic 2-0.
The home side took the lead when Dan Hartley’s run down the right wing saw him cross to new signing, former Eastfield midfielder Kris Tate, who set up Conner Myerscough to slot home the opener.
Matty Drury, another recruit from the now-defunct Eastfield club, also went close in the first half as did Myerscough.
Matty Dawson’s corner was deflected in by an Athletic defender to secure the win after the interval.
The men of the match were centre-backs Drury and youngster Josh Lewis, another new signing from Cayton, while keeper Josh Broadhead also had a solid match. Left-back Jack Brown and central midfielder Paul Reddy impressed for a below-par Falsgrave.
Scalby Reserves 2 (Jordan, Eves) Commercial 2
Commercial fought back from 2-0 down to get a point from a 2-2 draw at Scalby Reserves
An overhead kick from Taylor Jordan and Darren Eves’ fine finish put Scalby in front, but two goals midway through the second half earned Commercial a share of the spoils.
Brandon Catherall was man of the match for Scalby.
Cayton Corinthians Reserves 2 (McAleese, C Garton) Westover Wasps Reserves 1 (Mackenzie-Fenwick)
Cayton fought back from 1-0 down to claim a 2-1 win at home to Westover Wasps Reserves.
Tom Mackenzie-Fenwick put Wasps ahead five minutes before half-time with a half-volley from 20 yards, but sub Jake Mcaleese and Craig Garton scored in the final 15 minutes to earn Cayton the win.
Centre-back Tom Venner was Cayton man of the match, while defenders Sean Hope and Glen O’Neil impressed for Wasps.
Sleights Reserves 1 (Kipling) Tennyson 1
Marc Kipling scored for Sleights Reserves in their 1-1 home draw with new boys Tennyson.
Kane Brannick was star man for Sleights, who dominated after going ahead on 20 minutes through Kipling.
