Westover Wasps continued their resurgence under new manager Jamie Heritage, while Whitby RFC coninued their superb form in division three.


WESTOVER WASPS 2 (Rose 2) RYEDALE (Turnbull)

New Westover boss Jamie Heritage took his third win from four games to date with a 2-1 win against a lacklustre Ryedale side.

Ryedale started well and should have led when Jamie Fewster found space, but his effort hit the post.

Two goals from Curt Rose either side of the break gave Wasps a 2-0 cushion that they never looked like throwing away, despite Sam Turnbull’s effort for Ryedale.

Ryan Matson was Westover’s man of the match for his efforts on the left flank.

HUNMANBY UNITED 3 (C Crawford, Johnson, Dobson) SEAMER SC 1 (Forsyth)

Hunmanby United deservedly sealed three points against a lacklustre Seamer side.

They led 2-0 through goals from Chris Crawford and Lee Johnson before Matty Forsyth halved the deficit for Matty Dawson’s men.

Cameron Dobson scored a superb goal from distance to put the game and result beyond any doubt.


RILLINGTON ATHLETIC 0 SCALBY 6 (C Townley 3 (one pen), A Townley, Wedge, Simpson)

Kev David’s depleted Scalby side won 6-0 at Rillington Athletic.

The away side led after only a couple of minutes as Carl Townley volleyed in acrobatically after a cross from Scalby man of the match Richard Simpson.

It was 2-0 at the break after Simpson’s tame free-kick was spilled into his net by the Athletic keeper.

Scalby’s dominance continued after the break as the Rillington keeper’s clearance was blocked and the ball fell to Carl Townley, whose effort from 25 yards took a big deflection and found the top corner.

The away side led 4-0 shortly afterwards as Carl Townley was brought down in the box and swept the resulting penalty past the home side’s stopper with ease.

Carl’s brother Ashley showed predatory skills to notch Scalby’s fifth before club stalwart Danny Wedge ventured forward for a corner and let fly with a thunderbolt volley into the roof of the net for 6-0.

While Simpson was named as Scalby’s man of the match, 57-year-old manager David shone in Scalby’s back three as he filled in superbly.


Newlands Reserves striker Luke Delve was at his best to fire his side to a 5-1 home win against Filey’s second string.

Delve fired in four goals to continue his impressive season in front of goal, adding to an own goal that gave his side a comfortable win despite a goal from Filey’s man of the match Matty Gill.

FLIXTON 1 (Dixon) CAYTON CORINTHIANS 2 (Newbold, McAleese)

Shaun Rennison’s Cayton dominated large parts of their 2-1 win at a lacklustre Flixton side.

Jake McAleese’s corner found Luke Newbold to put Cayton 1-0 up, but scores were level at the interval after Rob Dixon latched onto Tim Jackson’s flick-on and netted.

Cayton were the better side after the interval and deserved the three points that came when McAleese bundled in off his hip.

Gus Farroh was Cayton’s star man.

FC ROSETTE 0 SNAINTON 3 (Watson, Mintoft, Wallace)

Snainton beat Rosette 3-0 to collect the three points on offer, but they left it late to make the win safe.

A strike from player-manager Leigh Watson put Snainton 1-0 up, but they had to wait until the last 15 minutes to confirm their win.

Goals from Liam Mintoft and Sam Wallace gave the scoreline a more positive feel for the away side, whose man of the match was Mike Horsley.



SEAMER SC RESERVES 0 WHITBY RFC 6 (Jobling 3, Usher, Ross, OG)

Whitby RFC continued their push for promotion from division three as they kept their unbeaten league run intact with a 6-0 win at Seamer Reserves.

They led 1-0 at the break through a Marc Usher effort, and Seamer had a glorious chance to level but Dan Layton saw his penalty kick saved by Sam Gale and that miss cost the home side.

Steve Jobling banged in a second half hat-trick and also saw his cross turned past the Seamer keeper by an unfortunate defender, while Steve Ross rounded off the RFC scoresheet.

ATHLETICO2B 6 (Goodwin 2, Stockhill 2, Kevan, Day) WESTOVER WASPS RESERVES 1

Shaun Goodwin and Adam Stockhill smashed in doubles to fire Athletico2B to a 6-1 win at home to Westover Reserves.

Athletico led 5-0 at the break Goodwin and Adam Stockhill netted two apiece and Ross Kevan also scored.

Tommy Day made it 6-0 after the break before Westover netted a consolation.

Sam Swift, Tom Gibson and Goodwin stood out for Nick David’s men.


Falsgrave Reserves won 5-3 at Cayton Reserves after an entertaining affair.

Cayton trailed at the break as Falsgrave took a 3-0 lead, but two goals from Josh Venner and a Martin Harwood strike made it interesting at 4-3.

As Cayton pressed for a leveller they pushed everyone forward at a corner and Falsgrave broke down the pitch and netted to put the result beyond any doubt at 5-3.

Craig Garton stood out for Cayton at left-back.
