The hosts doubled their lead when Leigh Franks shot home from 10 yards after a Ryan Baldry throw, and Oli Milner’s fine finish wrapped up the game before half-time.

Five minutes from time United completed the scoring, Ryan Baldry broke through after a pass from his brother Dan and then shot at goal, his effort hitting the post and coming back out for Jon Hyde to slot in.

Seamer Sports claimed a 5-3 home win in a bizarre home game against a depleted Cayton Corinthians side.

A Harry Sleep double put the visitors, who started with a bare 11, 2-0 up at the interval but four Cayton players left at half-time to ensure that the reserves had a full team for their home game with Filey Town Reserves in Division Two.

Seamer took full advantage of this and roared into a 3-2 lead, and although Mark Davison levelled, the hosts struck another two goals to seal the win.

Gaz Lawton, Ben Mason, Ali Caw, Joe Gallagher and Jamie Hartley netted for Paddy Parke’s side, Hartley scoring the pick of the bunch with a fine header.

Bates then completed his hat-trick to make it 5-3 and Prosser’s second sealed the win, despite James Hughes netting the away side’s fourth.

Drew McCoubrey scored the seventh for Newlands, whose man of the match was central midfielder Rob Bowman.

McBean hailed the midfield trio of Chris Watson, Luke Midgley and Tim Jackson.
