Action from Cayton Reserves' Division Two clash with Seamer Reserves

The first division’s early pace-setters West Pier and Edgehill both made it three wins from three games on Saturday.

Pier moved into pole position on goal difference following a resounding 6-0 success at Whitby RUFC.

Striker Billy Logan led the way with a hat-trick for Andy Spivey’s troops.

Sam Garnett got forward from defence to bag himself a goal, with Martin Cooper and substitute Neil Thomas also finding the back of the home side’s net.

Edgehill came from behind to snatch a 3-2 victory from their trip to Sleights.

Jack Ramos struck to put Steve Clegg’s men ahead, but an own goal and then an effort from Joe Leadley saw Sleights go in front.

Edgehill were level in the 70th minute when a home defender put through his own net and 10 minutes later Danny Collins grabbed the winning goal.

Wayne Aziz was named the victors’ man of the match.

Filey Town eventually came out on top of a see-saw encounter at Seamer.

Town went 1-0 up through a fine 20-yard strike from Rhys Crowe, but then switched off at the back, allowing Luke Delve and then Joe Gallagher to net for Seamer, turning the game on its head.

Filey began the second half brightly and Darren Clough took advantage of a defensive mix up to draw the visitors level.

Seamer went back in front when Delve’s flick was diverted past his own keeper by John Emmerson, but left-back Nathan Vernon set up Clough to head in his second of the game for 3-3.

A handball in the Seamer box allowed Emmerson to convert from the spot and Clough wrapped things up with his hat-trick goal following good work from Liam Sugden and Ricky Tomlinson.

Cayton Corinthians picked up their first points of the season with a 3-0 home triumph over Westover Wasps.

Jack Pinder put Cayton in front when he converted the rebound after his initial effort was saved, before the same player finished calmly for 2-0 after being sent clean through on goal.

Substitute Isaac Sands fired home from the edge of the box in the second half to end the game as a contest.

Central midfielder Luke Foster was the Corinthians’ star man.

Last season’s champions Newlands Park were held to a 2-2 draw on the road at Whitby Fishermen.

Two goals in five first-half minutes from Adam Stride and then Sean Exley handed Park a 2-1 advantage, Sam Bailey registering for the Whitby side.

Man of the match Bailey then netted the only goal of the second period to earn the home side a point.

Scalby and Newlands Reserves continue to lead the way at the top of the second division table.

The pair both made it three wins from three with comprehensive victories over struggling opposition on Saturday.

Scalby were set on their way to a 4-0 triumph at Snainton courtesy of a fine individual effort from Mark Vasey.

Ben Webster added a second after the interval, before Mark Oldroyd’s cute pass set up player-manager Dan Argyle to net the third goal of the game.

Dan Peel rounded things off for a Scalby side who had Grant Elwell in fine form.

In-form striker Drew McCoubrey struck a hat-trick as Newlands’ second string won 6-2 at bottom-of-the table Ayton.

McCoubrey added to last week’s four-goal haul against Seamer Reserves with a first-half double to give his side a 2-1 lead at the break.

The former Eastfield man completed his treble in the second period, with Stewart Bates, Kyle May and Sam Chambers also netting.

Chris Milburn and Matty Bywater scored the home side’s goals.

Martyn Ferrey’s Edgehill Reserves side claimed their first win of the season in emphatic style when they hammered previously unbeaten West Pier Reserves 8-3.

Tom Scales and Jon Cairns both bagged braces with Benny Davis, David Darling, Chris Ferrey and the player-boss himself also among the goals.

Pier registered through Chris Weetman (2) and Ryan Wood.

“The whole team played well in what was a good performance,” Ferrey reflected.

“We’ve had a bit of a slow start to the season, but we’re starting to get all our players back now and things are coming together for us.”

Seamer Reserves produced a five-star display to brush aside the challenge of Cayton Reserves.

Lewis Pickles grabbed a double, while the returning Ali Caw, Danny Kelly and Matty Dawson scored Seamer’s other goals.

A vintage display from central midfielder Arran Wright was key to the visitors’ 5-1 success on the day.
