A second free-kick gave Joe Scholes an excellent opportunity to double the lead and this he did with a great strike.
After the break Seamer’s passing game paid off when a great move involving Josh Curry, Andrew Young and Cameron Greatorex ended with Oliver Parker tapping in.
It was not long before Marc Hanson set up Parker for his second and Seamer’s fourth .

Cayton Corinthians and Goldsborough United shared the spoils in an entertaining 4-4 draw.
Hosts Cayton went straight on the attack from the beginning, Josh Lever hitting the crossbar with a long range effort and then finding the visiting keeper in top form.
Despite Cayton playing some impressive passing football they found themselves 2-0 down after a couple of quick counter attacks against the run of the play, Lever halved the deficit just before half-time firing home after an excellent run and cross from the hardworking Ben Atkinson.
Lee Pettitt got Cayton back on level terms with a 20 yard shot only for Goldsborugh to catch the Cayton defense napping again and score another two goals on the break.
Chances were coming at either end but it was Lever who poked the next one home to set up an exciting final couple of minutes.
Cayton piled forward and when Jakob Davies found the ball at his feet he side-stepped the defender and fired home to score a well deserved goal that had been coming throughout the match and earn a point for hosts, for whom Kieran Wade and Jay Meatheringham both put in solid displays.

The second half started the same until Ayton’s Alfie Cotterell was introduced and immediately helped to drive his Side forward.
Ayton created a number of chances but Holt’s keeper was in fine form pulling off a string of saves. with a couple of minutes remaining Cotterell was tripped on the edge of the box, Beck drilled the free-kick towards the Holt goal which took a deflection before nestling into the bottom corner of the net.
