Filey Town claimed their opening win of the Scarborough News Saturday League Division One season with a shock 2-1 home win against defending champions West Pier, the latter's first league loss in more than two years.

The visitors were the better team in the first half and took the lead thanks to an own goal.

Filey, under caretaker boss Jordan Philliskirk, took control after the interval and levelled through an excellent goal from striker Darren Clough.

Town keeper Kyle Scaife then pulled off a fine save to keep the hosts in the game, and soon after Filey went ahead, once again through a great goal from Clough.

Scaife pulled off another smart stop as the visitors looked to grab a point, but the home side secured the win against a Pier side which won all 18 games last season as well as the first two this campaign.

Andy Spivey's side also won the 2015-16 league title without losing a game, their last defeat in the top flight coming in April 2015, a 1-0 reverse at Newlands.

Philliskirk was delighted with his charges: "We put in a great performance, the whole team deserve to share the man of the match award."

Edgehill remain top of the league after their third successive win, this time they earned a 3-0 win at Hunmanby United.

A stunning first-half show secured the points for the visitors, despite Danny Collins having an early penalty saved by the United keeper.

Kurtis Henderson opened the scoring for Edgehill, rising highest to powerfully head in a corner.

Joe Gallagher added a second goal, bursting from midfield and blasting his shot into the net, then a fine strike from Kieran Link wrapped up the win by half-time.

The second half was a non-event as United's determined defence nullified the threat of the visitors' attack.

Left-winger Luke Jones and sub Danny Exley impressed for the victors.

Seamer Sports returned to winning ways with a 4-2 home triumph against Newlands.

A Danny Glendinning header put Seamer in front on 10 minutes only for Newlands to level through an own goal 10 minutes later.

There were no further goals before half-time, but after the interval Kris Tate's deadly strike from 16 yards, from a Danny Bradbury pass, put Seamer back in front, and striker Ricky Greening then chipped in a third for the hosts and a Dean Craig strike wrapped up the three points for the village club.

Jordan Mintoft pulled back a goal five minutes from time for Newlands but it was too little too late for the visitors.

Joint-boss Tommy Adams was named as man of the match for a commanding display at the centre of a three-man defence, with central midfielders Kris Tate and Mark Barber also impressing.

Goalsports netted their first-ever top-flight win with a 5-2 success at Flamborough.

The hosts went in front after a slip by the Goalsports keeper, but Jake Adams headed in the leveller after fine work from Brad Parkin in the 25th minute.

Two minutes later Harry Denness set up Dempsey Stubbings to slot in a second for the visitors, but Goalsports let the lead slip before half-time, sloppy defending allowing Boro to level.

Mark Plumpton's side hit top form after the break, Tyson Stubbings putting them back in front with a great goal, racing down the left flank, beating a couple of Boro defenders before firing his shot across the keeper and into the net.

Another similar run by Tyson Stubbings saw his shot cannon in off a home defender, and Dempsey Stubbings then set up Parkin to add a fifth for Goalsports.

Centre-back Adams won the man of the match award for Goalsports.
