Full round-up of the opening day of action in the Scarborough News Saturday League division two and the first round of the Trophy Trader League Trophy.

Snainton 0 Falsgrave 3 (Tolliday 2, Brady)



Billy Joe Johnson’s promoted Falsgrave side were in rampant mood as they opened their new campaign with a comfortable 3-0 success at Snainton.

Neither side could break the deadlock in the first half but Paul Brady’s sublime free-kick opened the scoring after the interval.

Falsgrave’s Rich Tolliday was in inspired form in the second half and he found the net to make it 2-0.

Tolliday beat two men before placing his effort in the bottom corner.

And the youngster was at it again when he beat his man for pace on the edge of the box and finished superbly for the goal of the game.

Falsgrave could have added to their lead against a disappointing Snainton, who weren’t at the races.

The woodwork came to the village side’s rescue on three occasions, but Falsgrave were winners by a 3-0 margin.

Cayton Corinthians 2 Edgehill Reserves 11 (Jon Cairns 5, Scales 2, L Dennis, Watson, Prosser, Jones)

Edgehill Reserves were in top form as they raced out of the blocks for the 2012/13 season with an 11-2 hammering of relegated Cayton.

Fox in the box Jon Cairns was in scintillating form in front of goal as he helped himself to five.

Tom Scales added a brace and he was joined on the scoresheet by Lee Dennis, JP Watson, Jason Prosser and Danny Jones, who scored the goal of the game with a stunning 30-yard strike.

Damien Robinson was named man of the match on his Edgehill debut by stand-in manager Alec Coulson for his superb efforts at centre half.

Filey Town Reserves 8 (Gage 3, T Haxby 2, Keeble, Eblet, OG) FC Rosette 2

Jay Taylor’s were also at the races on the first day of the new campaign, hitting eight past Al Wray’s Rosette side.

Joe Gage opened the scoring before Joe Eblet’s overhead-kick doubled their lead.

Rosette hit back with an own goal but Tom Haxby headed home from a corner to make it 3-1 to Taylor’s Filey side.

After the break an own goal made it 4-1 to the home side before Gage buried the fifth and sixth goals to complete his hat-trick and put the result beyond any doubt.

Haxby netted his second before debutant Jonny Keeble rounded-off the home side’s tally to make it 8-1.

Rosette bagged a late consolation to wrap things up at 8-2.

Scalby 0 Flixton 1 (Midgeley)

Flixton came out on top against relegated Scalby, with just a solitary strike proving the difference.

A new-look Scalby side had the better of the opening exchanges and both Joe Tomlinson and Danny Birley forced the Flixton keeper into smart stops.

As the half wore on Flixton started to find chances easier to come by and could easily have gone in at the break with an advantage.

They finally broke the deadlock after 70 minutes when Luke Midgeley found some space and beat Scalby player-manager Matthew Scott to find the net.

Rillington Athletic 0 West Pier Reserves 2 (Crawford, Spivey)

After a torrid campaign last time around, West Pier Reserves shook off their winless run stretching over 20 games and beat Rillington Athletic to advance into the second round of the Trophy Trader League Trophy.

New manager Dave Crawford opened the scoring after 20 minutes from 10 yards out, and the score remained that way until the last minute.

Young Kyle Spivey made sure there weren’t any last gasp disappointments when he slotted home with a neat finish.

Boss Crawford picked out central midfielder James Temple as their stand-out performer.
