Seamer Sports turned in the performance of the season so far to sink Eastfield in comfortable fashion, while West Pier, Edgehill, Ayton and Ryedale also collected victories.

EASTFIELD 1 (Price) SEAMER SPORTS 11 (Pinder 4, Bradbury 3, Lawton 3, Tiffany pen)

Eastfield were clinically swept aside by Seamer Sports, who went goal crazy at their neighbours.

Matty Dawson’s men struck five in the first half and then wrapped things up in powerful style after the interval.

New boy Rob Pinder was the goalscoring star of the show with four goals, though the hat-tricks of Danny Bradbury and Gary Lawton meant that they weren’t too far behind.

Joe Tiffany’s penalty completed Seamer’s scoring, while Danny Price broke the Eastfield duck.

A delighted Dawson, who used to wear Eastfield colours, said: “It was just a great performance. I haven’t seen us play like that since we beat Ayton 6-2 last season.”

Right midfielder Matty Forsyth produced an outstanding performance for the victorious side.

WEST PIER (Barker, og) HUNMANBY UTD 1 (Duley)

Champions West Pier were forced to hang on for the points in the second half against an impressive Hunmanby outfit.

Pier moved ahead midway through the first half when Mikey Barker burst free on the right and drilled a shot across the goal into the bottom corner.

The lead was doubled 10 minutes before the break as Jamie Bradshaw’s free-kick took a nasty deflection and flew into the back of the net.

The new period was a completely different story as Hunmanby upped their tempo.

James Wardle hacked the ball off the line, before United trimmed the lead back to one through Chris Duley’s powerful header.

Pier managed to cling on to the points in the closing stages, though boss Andy Spivey did concede that his side needed to improve.

He said: “We just haven’t got going yet, the lads just look a bit off the pace. You can’t take anything away from Hunmanby though, they did really well on the night and were unlucky not to get something.”

Neil Thomas was Pier’s star man in the middle of the park, while left-sided raider Lee Johnson was Hunmanby’s best player.

FALSGRAVE 2 (Ellis, Anderson) EDGEHILL 4 (JP Watson, Jenking, Ramm, Greening)

Edgehill had to come from behind to snatch the points against newly-promoted Falsgrave.

in-form striker Nick Ellis nudged Falsgrave ahead, but right on the stroke of half-time a JP Watson finish restored parity.

Aaron Jenking put Edgehill ahead after a Ricky Greening pull-back, but Mikey Anderson levelled things up for Falsgrave.

Edgehill managed to drive a cushion between the sides in the closing stages, with Joel Ramm heading them back in front and Greening slotting home after a Chris Nelson long ball, a goal that killed off the fixture.

AYTON 3 (Glaves 2, Pickering) WESTOVER 2

Ayton held on to collect a tight victory against Westover.

They were indebted to full-back Liam Glaves, who opened the scoring after 25 minutes when he followed in a free-kick.

Glaves then doubled the advantage with a left-footed shot from the edge of the box, only for Westover to pull a goal back.

Sub Mikey Pickering drove home from 20 yards to seal the win for Ayton, though they were given a nervy moment or two when Westover scored from the penalty spot.

Glaves and Pickering performed well for Ayton, while Alex Bowman put in a good shift in attack.

RYEDALE 4 (Preston 2, Hornby 2) WHITBY FISHERMEN 0

Doubles from Robbie Preston and Adam Hornby meant that Ryedale were just too strong for Whitby.
