Newlands veteran Hugh Brown struck in the 89th minute to give his side a 1-0 win on the road at table-toppers Filey Town.

DIVISION 1

FILEY TOWN 0 NEWLANDS 1 (Brown)

Newlands put a dent in Filey Town’s title charge after a last-gasp goal from club stalwart Hugh Brown gave the away side a 1-0 win.

Filey could have extended their lead at the top of the pile with both Ayton and West Pier in cup action, but they failed to capitalise.

An even contest looked certain to end with a stalemate until Brown popped up right at the death to scramble in off his groin to seal a big win for Shaun Mancrief’s men.

Mancrief said: “It looked like it was going to be a 0-0 game all afternoon.

“We probably had more chances than them on the day but maybe a draw would have been a fair result.”

Mancrief picked out experienced duo Jamie Gallagher and Nick Beale as his side’s star men.

WHITBY FISHERMEN’S SOCIETY 3 HUNMANBY UNITED 4

Hunmanby United pulled off one of the biggest shock results of the 2012/13 campaign to date with a 4-3 win on the road at Whitby Fishermen’s Society.

The away side moved off the table with only their second win of the campaign and breathed life into their battle against the drop into division two with their surprise win against Mark Storr’s Fishermen, whose outside chances of winning the title will surely now be dead and buried.

DIVISION 2

FC ROSETTE 4 (Logan 2 (1 pen), T Blackburn, Kay) FALSGRAVE 4 (Tolliday 2, Ellis 2)

FC Rosette and Falsgrave were forced to share the spoils after their eight-goal-thriller ended in a 4-4 draw.

Rosette led 2-0 at the break thanks to strikes from Tommy Blackburn and Sam Kay.

Falsgrave halved their deficit shortly after the break through Nick Ellis but a Joe Logan strike made it 3-1.

Billy Johnson’s men rallied and fought their way back into the game when Rich Tolliday netted twice to get his side back on level terms.

It looked like the away side were going to complete a stunning turnaround when Nick Ellis scored the goal of the game with a scissor-kick volley, but with just moments left on the clock Rosette were awarded a penalty after a foul on Jamie Wray and Logan swept in his second to earn Rosette a point.

NEWLANDS RESERVES 1 (McGregor) SCALBY 4 (Lightfoot 2, Birley, Walker)

Rich Birley’s Scalby side moved off the foot of the table after a morale-boosting 4-1 win at Newlands Reserves.

They led almost right from the off after Danny Birley slotted in for 1-0.

Their lead was doubled after 10 minutes when recent signing Francis Lightfoot smashed in with his left foot and the score remained at 2-0 at the interval.

The away side stretched their lead after the break through a Tommy Walker header after Lightfoot flicked on but a strike from veteran Dougie McGregor made it 3-1.

The away side’s win was confirmed when they made it 4-1 though after John Bateman’s cross was met by Lightoof, who bundled in his second to round things off.

James Minghella was the away side’s stand-out performer.

RILLINGTON ATHLETIC 1 CAYTON CORINTHIANS 1

Neither of these relegation threatened sides did their hopes of avoiding the drop any good as they played out a 1-1 draw.

Both sides have won just two games so far this season and will need to start picking up wins if they are to avoid finishing in the bottom two.

DIVISION 3

ATHLETICO2B 3 (B David, Goodwin, Dodson) WHITBY RFC 3

It was a frustrating afternoon for Athletico2B, who failed to capitalise on Soba, Sleights and West Pier Reserves all playing in the cup.

Kev David’s men couldn’t see off a dogged Whitby side, who managed to steal a share of the spoils despite goals from Ben David, Shaun Goodwin and a Shaun Dodson free-kick.

SCALBY RESERVES 0 FALSGRAVE RESERVES 2 (Martin 2)

Falsgrave Reserves’ improved form continued as they sealed a surprise 2-0 win at a lacklustre Scalby Reserves.

The home side were left frustrated after referee Albert Eadon deemed young Mikey Winter to be offside after he swept into the top corner despite the away side’s linesman not raising his flag.

The away side took full advantage and after a host of defensive errors in the Scalby rearguard, Adam Martin poked in for 1-0.

Scalby almost levelled but a Jake Scutt header rattled back off the woodwork.

The home side pressed for a leveller after the break and Karl Hansell had two efforts on goal saved in fine style before Nick Turley’s effort was hacked off the line,

Falsgrave confirmed their win when a soft back-pass was latched onto by Martin, who lobbed stand-in keeper Jez Clifford for 2-0.

SEAMER SC RESERVES 5 (Sweeting 2, Myerscough, OG, Jewitt) WESTOVER WASPS RESERVES 0

Sam Sweeting netted twice in a man of the match performance that helped Dave Graham’s Seamer Reserves to a 5-0 win at home to Westover Reserves.

Sweeting netted twice early on to give his side a 2-0 lead at half-time.

Youngster Connor Myerscough registered to make it 3-0 before Sweeting had a hand in their fourth which ended up in the back of the net off an unfortunate Westover man.

The scoring was completed by Dan Jewitt as Seamer cruised home.

Seamer boss Graham praised the performance of referee John Chalk.
