Newlands, West Pier, Edgehill and Filey all won to further their title claims, while Ayton and Westover both picked up wins.



Shaun Mancrief’s Newlands side continued their domination of the first division with a comfortable 5-1 win at home to Whitby Fishermen’s Society.

Newlands led 3-0 at the interval and never looked back against Mark Storr’s visitors, as prolific frontman Billy Logan bagged another two goals to add to his impressive tally thus far.

Sean Exley bounced back from missing a host of chances to bag a brace for himself, while Chris Dove wrapped up the scoring for Newlands.

Boss Mancrief singled out Jack Hakings and Chris Beale for particular praise, while a mention also went to Sean Pinder, who has rejoined Park to play in goal for the title-chasers.

EASTFIELD 1 (K Tate) WEST PIER 3 (Provins, M Cooper, Barker)

Division one champions West Pier put in a solid performance to see off Eastfield.

Pier led 1-0 through a Paul Provins effort after 15 minutes and they had a glorious chance to double their lead when Sam Garnett was brought down in the area, but Gareth Sygrove’s effort was tame and saved easily by Chris Ferrey in the Eastfield net.

Pier did double their lead after the break though after a slide-rule pass from Dane Ramos found Martin Cooper, who cut in from the flank and finished well.

Eastfield battled back and set up a tense finale when Kris Tate was afforded too much time in the box and subsequently lobbed Pier keeper Scott Wardman.

The away side weren’t to be denied though and the win was sealed after Cooper beat his man and teed up substitute Mikey Barker, who made no mistake in smashing in.

Pier boss Spivey picked out Cooper and Ramos as his side’s star men, while he also paid tribute to his entire team for their performance.

EDGEHILL 2 (Greening 2) SEAMER SC 0

Edgehill maintained their solid run of form after beating Seamer 2-0 at Staxton.

The away side battled well but found themselves behind after 20 minutes when Ricky Greening latched onto a through-ball and finished well.

It was soon 2-0 in similar circumstances. This time Greening was put through by Kieran Link and again he found the net.

Seamer were unlucky not to get back on terms before the break as they had two efforts on goal saved superbly by Edgehill stopper Martin Cappleman.

A tight second half ensued and neither side had many chances on goal, with Edgehill edging home pretty comfortably in the end.

Their midfielder Shaun Dodson was named as their man of the match, while Chris Nelson impressed out wide.

Craig Love put in an impressive performance for Seamer.

FILEY TOWN 4 (P Dickens 2, Kapynski, Tomlinson) RYEDALE SC 3

Filey survived a scare to win against Ryedale, who will feel aggrieved not to have come away from Clarence Drive with a point.

Filey trailed 2-0 at half-time and boss Jay Taylor admitted the margin could have been greater as his side never got out of first gear against an impressive Ryedale outfit.

Striker Phil Dickens had the chance to half their deficit but blazed his penalty well over the bar.

The home side showed more in the second half and quickly clawed themselves back into the contest.

Two goals from Dickens and solitary strikes from Ricky Tomlinson and Macie Kapynski inside the first seven minutes of the second half turned the game on its head as Filey led 4-2.

Ryedale netted a 74th-minute penalty to set up a nervy finish, but Filey held on for the win.

Boss Taylor said: “They probably deserved a point after their first-half performance.”

AYTON 2 (Vasey pen, Meads) HUNMANBY UNITED 1 (Dobson)

A last-ditch Phil Meads strike handed Ayton all three points at home against Hunmanby United.

The home side led after Mark Vasey was brought down in the box and fired in the resulting spot-kick.

United’s Cameron Dobson continued his good run in front of goal by equalising after 50 minutes with a lob from 25-yards.

It looked as though United were going to come away with a point until Meads dispossesed a defender and slotted in to give Ayton the win.

Ryan Baldry and Robbie Harrison played well for United.

WESTOVER WASPS 5 (Jones 2, Buglass, Rose, Cass) FALSGRAVE 0

New Westover player-boss Jamie Heritage saw his side pick up their first win of the season with a convincing win against a lacklustre Falsgrave side.

The new manager couldn’t have asked for a better start to his new role as goals from Luke Jones (2), Curtis Rose, Chris Cass and Liam Buglass handed them a 5-0 win.

James Seymour was named as their man of the match, while disappointed Falsgrave boss Billy Johnson picked out Gav McGough and Lewis Short as his side’s top performers.
