Champions West Pier were held to a 2-2 draw at home to a lively Filey Town side.

Neither side could break the deadlock in the first 45 minutes and went in at the break at 0-0.

Filey took the lead after the break when Ricky Tomlinson’s perfectly-weighted cross was met by Phil Dickens, who headed in.

Pier were level though when Mike Barker danced inside from the left flank and powered in a stunning strike from distance.

Pier took the lead for the first time in the game when Danny Cooper found himself in the right place at the right time to fire in.

The home side thought they had done enough but former Edgehill man Lee Cappleman wrestled a point away for Dave Brannan’s men when he turned and curled into the bottom corner to end things at 2-2.

Pier boss Andy Spivey picked out Filey’s front three of Dickens, James Pindar and Gareth Sygrove as a threat.

Newlands 3 (Bates 2, Mancrief) Seamer SC 0

Shaun Mancrief’s Newlands side took full advantage of Pier’s draw by beating Seamer 3-0.

Stu Bates scored a scintillating opener for the home side when he lashed in a first-time volley from Kile Fields’ cross.

Bates’ second had Newlands up 2-0 up at the break, before a Paddy Mancrief strike after the break rounded things off at 3-0.

Mancrief picked out Jamie Gallagher as his man of the match, while he was also impressed with his back three.

Ayton 7 (Dennis 2, Fryirs 2, Roberts, Vasey, Hamilton) Hunmanby United

Neik Fryirs made it 1-0 before a superb Alex Hamilton strike doubled their lead.

Goals from Mikey Dennis and player-boss Roberts made it 4-0, before Fryirs buried his second.

Mark Vasey scored a rare goal to make it 6-0 before Dennis’ second rounded things off at 7-0 heading into the interval.

Whitby Fishermen’s Society 5 (Brown, Purvis, Hart, Calvert, Barlow) Fishburn Park 1

Mark Storr’s Whitby Fishermen’s Society had five different goalscorers on their way to a comfortable derby victory against Fishburn Park.
