Filey Town 5 (Pindar 2, P Dickens 2 (1 pen), Tomlinson) Ryedale 3 (Hornby 2, Turnbull pen)

Dave Brannan’s Filey Town progressed into the second round of the League Cup despite a shaky spell late in the second half.

Filey were cruising at 4-1 despite Adam Hornby giving the visitors the lead.

Two Phil Dickens strikes, one coming from the penalty spot, and a Ricky Tomlinson effort did the damage.

James Pindar made it 4-1 after the interval but Filey seemed to take their food off the gas.

A Sam Turnbull penalty and another goal for Hornby set up a potentially nervy finish with the scoreline at 4-3.

But Pindar netted soon after to ease the nerves and Filey were through.

Division one:

Edgehill 3 (Bowman 2, Kapynski) Seamer SC 3 (Clough 2, Lowery)

Both Edgehill and Seamer had to battle back from being behind to eventually take a share of the spoils.

Alex Bowman rounded-off a neat move to put Edgehill in front after 30 minutes, before the same man doubled their lead after good work from Aaron Jenking.

Seamer scored a crucial goal just before the break when Liam Lowery tapped in from a corner, and their momentum carried into the second half.

Two stunning strikes from former Pickering Town man Darren Clough turned the game on its head and Seamer led 3-2.

Clough’s second strike in particular stood out when he volleyed in from a tight angle.

But Edgehill rallied and were level again after 75 minutes when Polish midfielder Macie Kapynski fired in a free-kick.

Seamer’s Joe Tiffany and Carl Hepples of Edgehill both stood out.

Eastfield St James 1 Ayton 2 (Dennis, Glaves)

Steve Roberts’ superb start to life as Ayton manager continued with a 2-1 win away at Eastfield.

Mikey Dennis put Ayton ahead after 35 minutes but Eastfield levelled up on the hour mark.

Eastfield’s Bobby Penney was then sent off after his second bookable offence.

Ayton re-took their lead with just 10 minutes left on the clock, Liam Glaves playing a neat one-two with player-boss Roberts before firing in the winner.

Boss Roberts said: “It is always tough going to Eastfield but the lads did really well and stuck at it.”

Whitby Fishermen’s Society 0 West Pier 3 (M Cooper 2, M Barker)

West Pier bounced back from their cup defeat against Athletico2B last week to beat Whitby Fishermen’s Society 3-0.

Both sides struggled to get on top in the first half they went in level at the break.

But Pier started to assert their authority on proceedings in the second half and were 1-0 up when Tommy Barker fed Martin Cooper to open the scoring.

Following a flurry of missed chances, Pier doubled their lead when Mikey Barker’s attempted cross landed in the back of the net.

Pier made sure of the points after 70 minutes when Cooper was brought down in the area and dusted himself down to bury the resulting spot kick.

Pier boss Andy Spivey picked out centre back Steve Sheader as their star man.

Fishburn Park 3 Westover Wasps 2 (O’Flanagan, OG)

Fishburn Park battled hard to take a 3-2 win at home to Westover Wasps.

Park took the lead, but an unfortunate own goal levelled things up.

Park regained their advantage but a deflected effort from Sam O’Flanagan made it 2-2.

But the home side weren’t to be denied and came away with the three points after an 85th minute winner.

Westover boss Dave Gaddass picked out Shane Hare and Daz Varley as the away sides’ stand-out performers.

Newlands 3 (Bates 2, B Logan) Hunmanby United 0 - MATCH POSTPONED AFTER 46 MINUTES

The game between Newlands and Hunmanby had to be controversially postponed shortly after half-time.

Newlands held a comfortable advantage at the break after a Stu Bates brace and a Billy Logan strike had them 3-0 up.

But an unfortunate injury to a Hunmanby player just a minute into the second half resulted in an ambulance being called and referree Eric Palmer called the game off.

Division two:

Snainton 5 (L Cooper, M Webster, Watson, Drydale, Nelson) Flixton 1 (Jackson)

Snainton produced a polished display to see off Flixton.

Good work by Snainton’s man of the match Mikey Webster teed up Liam Cooper to open the scoring before Webster registered himself for 2-0.

Leigh Watson’s effort made it 3-0 before Lee Drydale added the fourth,

Tim Jackson made it 4-1 but Chris Nelson’s effort rounded things off for Danny I’Anson’s men at 5-1.

I’Anson said: “It was a very good performance from the whole team. We played well and deserved the three points.”

Filey Town Reserves 2 (Powell, Flynn) Falsgrave Reserves (Malcolm)

Jay Taylor’s Filey Town Reserves inflicted Falsgrave Reserves’ first defeat of the new campaign.

Jordan Powell netted Town’s first following good work from Jonny Hunter and Scott Sheldon.

Lalan Flynn then followed up Dave Wedge’s speculative effort to tap in and make it 2-0.

Cameron Malcolm halved Falsgrave’s arrears and the away side could have nicked a draw if not for some superb goalkeeping from Shane Green.

Richard Curtis was also in inspired form in the Falsgrave goal.

Scalby 1 (Scales) Edgehill Reserves 6 (Cairns 2, Prosser 2, Scales, Dennis)

Edgehill Reserves cruised to a 6-1 win away at Scalby.

Lee Dennis opened the scoring before Tom Scales doubled their lead with a diving header.

Goals from Jason Prosser and Jon Cairns made it 4-0 at the break but Shaun Scales hit back for the home side afterwards to make it 4-1.

Scalby’s Danny Birley then missed from the penalty spot, his spot-kick cannoned off the crossbar and second goals from Prosser and Cairns wrapped it up at 6-1.

Dean Lill stood out for Edgehill in the middle of the park.

Rillington Athletic 3 (Jefferson, Malthouse, Mills) FC Rosette 1

Rillington took the three points from their home clash against FC Rosette.

Neither side could break the deadlock after a tense first 45 minutes, but Joe Jefferson bundled in after the break to give the home side the lead.

Richard Malthouse then curled in from the edge of the area to double their lead, and the result was put beyond any doubt when Paul Mills made it 3-0.

Rosette scored from a late penalty to make it 3-1, but the result had already been decided.

Cayton Corinthians 1 Newlands Reserves 6

Newlands Reserves collected three points from their trip to relegated Cayton.

The home side couldn’t match Newlands and the visitors subsequently took the 6-1 win and all three points on offer.
