Newlands Park continued their all out assault on the division one title with a 12-2 demolition of Falsgrave, while Hunmanby and Eastfield shared the spoils and there were also wins for Filey Town and Westover Wasps.


Newlands Park 12 (Exley 4, Logan 4, McCoubrey 2, Freer, Jenkinson) Falsgrave 2

Shaun Mancrief’s Newlands side continued their relentless assault on the division one title with a 12-2 hammering of Falsgrave.

Both Billy Logan and Sean Exley helped themselves to four goals apiece, while Drew McCoubrey grabbed a brace.

The Newlands scoresheet was completed by man of the match Dan Freer and Danny Jenkinson.

Newlands could have extended their lead even further, but a host of missed chances, including a second penalty miss in two weeks by Jordan Mintoft, kept the scoreline at 12.

Mancrief said: “We could have scored even more. I lost count of the number of one-on-ones we missed.”

Filey Town 2 (Berton, Wardell) Seamer SC 0

Filey Town battled their way to a 2-0 win at home to struggling Seamer.

Town’s French attacking midfielder Lucas Berton handed the home side the lead after 42 minutes after he rifled in following a poor clearance.

It remained 1-0 until the 64th minute when Gary Wardell rounded off a good team move that was instigated by good work down the Town right by Ricky Tomlinson.

The home side held firm to take the points from a rather forgettable encounter.

Taylor singled out Frenchman Berton as his side’s star man.

Westover Wasps 3 (Jones, Seymour, Shaw) Ayton 1 (Thomas)

Jamie Heritage’s good run of form since taking over as Westover Wasps boss continued as they beat Ayton 3-1 in swirling winds at Oliver’s Mount.

The home side led after Luke Jones was fouled and dusted himself down to take the free-kick himself.

His tame effort seemed to be heading for the usually reliable grasp of Ayton keeper Ben Riley, only for the ball to take a slight bobble and find its way into the net.

Wasps had to wait until after the break to extend their lead, man of the match James Seymour venturing forward from centre-back to fire in.

Ayton keeper Riley then made amends for his earlier faux pas as he saved Curt Rose’s penalty brilliantly, after the same man had been felled in the box.

That miss didn’t hamper Wasps too much as substitute striker Jordan Shaw grabbed their third after latching onto Seymour’s ball over the top.

Ayton’s Rich Thomas headed home a consolation from a corner, but it was too little-too late for Steve Roberts’ men.

Hunmanby United 2 (Chapman, Wilson) Eastfield St James 2 (Till, Purvis)

Hunmanby United and Eastfield had to settle for a share of the spoils after a 2-2 draw at Sands Lane.

The home side led after good work from Ryan Crawford, formerly of Welsh Premier League Connah’s outfit Quay, fed Matty Chapman to tap in.

Eastfield levelled through pacy winger Nathan Till, before taking the lead through striker Luke Purvis.

United weren’t to be denied a deserved point though and they got their leveller after 85 minutes.

Ryan Baldry’s long throw was flicked on by Darren Unsworth to Tommy Wilson, who fired in to grab United a draw.

The home side felt aggrieved not to take all three points after Unsworth’s volley seemed to cross the line, only for the referee to wave play-on.

United’s star men were keeper Howard Berridge and Jonny Hyde.
