West Pier boosted their first division title ambitions when they picked up an edgy 3-0 win at Seamer.

It was nip and tuck until the hour mark when Tommy Barker scrambled home a scruffy opener for Andy Spivey’s men.

Seamer were still in it until sub Jamie Bradshaw cut in and drilled a shot into the bottom corner with just 10 minutes left on the clock.

Top-scorer Sam Hyde then wrapped it up when he ended a melee in the box with a tidy finish.

Midfielder Daz Crawford picked up the man-of-the-match honour for a battling performance in challenging conditions.

Hunmanby United striker Cameron Dobson was in majestic form as the division one strugglers stunned understrength Newlands by a 7-1 scoreline.

Newlands were missing a handful of players and their manager Shaun Mancrief, but Hunmanby showed no mercy as Dobson found the net six times.

Mike Johnson scored the other for the village team, with a Luke Delve penalty gave Newlands something to take back to Scarborough.

Matt Chapman also stood out in an excellent United performance.

In division two, Falsgrave made sure of second place in the table when they crushed rivals Flixton 4-0.

Falsgrave dominated in the wind, with doubles from Lee Drydale and Rich Tolliday steering them clear.

Gav McGough, Mat Whitehall and Kieran Link all shone for the victors.

Soba were involved in a fight against Whitby RFC on a windy Oliver’s Mount, but they did enough to win 4-1.

Sean Cross’ wind-assisted effort gave Soba the lead and Craig Rackham doubled the advantage before the break.

Zach Poole added a third before a glaring error from George Rose allowed Whitby in for a lifeline at 3-1.

Rackham went on to register his second to seal the victory for the Soba lads.
