Harry Sleep scored four times as Cayton Corinthians hammered Falsgrave Athletic 8-1 in Division Two.

Sleep moved Damon Cook’s rejuvenated side 1-0 up early on, then added a second as he got the finishing touch on a Curtis Foreman cross.

Athletic pulled one back, but Sleep completed a first-half treble when he got on the end of a Jack Pindar centre.

Craig Garton and Micky Dennis combined to set Dan Louth up to head in a fourth for the Corinthians after the interval, substitute Mike Szalabski then taking the score to 5-1.

Sleep registered his fourth of the game, before goals from debutant Josh Sands and a second for Polish striker Szalabski rounded things off.

Newlands Reserves picked up a 3-1 on their travels at Filey Town Reserves.

Drew McCoubrey put second-placed Newlands 1-0 up in a first half that the visitors dominated, Filey indebted to their goalkeeper for a number of fine saves that kept them in touch.

It was the home side who took charge after the break however, and they were level after 70 minutes.

Newlands’ Gary Lumbis was then given his marching orders for a second yellow card and Filey piled the pressure on, striking the Park cross bar as they went in search of a winner.

With Town looking the more likely to take the points, a defensive mix up gifted Sam Chambers the chance to fire the away side in front against the run of play.

Filey threw men forward in search of a second equaliser, but they were caught on the break in the 88th minute when Chambers broke away to net his second of the afternoon, making the game safe in the process.

Debutant Rob Bowman and striker Mark Wade were the star men for the victors.

Seamer Sports Reserves remain top of the table after an 8-3 success over struggling Ayton.

Ali Caw was on fine form, netting four goals for the victors, Ryan Jackson chipping in with a double, while Dom Barber and seasoned midfielder Azza Wright were also on target.

Paul Oldroyd (2) and Jazz Garvie bagged Ayton’s goals, but the men from Wilsons Lane remained mired in the relegation zone.

Martyn Ferrey’s Edgehill Reserves stay in third place courtesy of a 3-0 home success over Duchess.

Jon Cairns gave the hosts the lead, and a strike from player-boss Ferrey doubled the advantage.

Paul Watson was then sent off for a professional foul, but Duchess couldn’t capitalise on their numerical advantage, and Benny Davis added a third goal to seal the three points for Edgehill.

Basement side Snainton secured their first win of the season when they came from two goals down at half-time to beat West Pier Reserves by a 3-2 scoreline.

In Division Three, FC Rosette’s unbeaten start to their league campaign came to an end when they were beaten 3-2 at home by Sherburn, despite twice being in front.

Rosette went 1-0 up through a 30-yard strike from Martin Hadrick, but the away side hit back when Gary Tyson finished off a fine through ball from Paul Mills.

The hosts re-took the lead in the 70th minute when Si McDonald found Wayne Shaw who broke down the right flank and picked out the bottom corner of the visitors’ net from 18 yards out.

Sherburn did not have to wait long to get back on terms however, Tyson registering his second of the afternoon for 2-2.

Just a couple of minutes later, Adam Spaven scored what proved to be the game’s decisive goal to win the day for Andy Adamson’s team.

Hunmanby United Reserves secured the local bragging rights when they beat Filey Town 3rds 5-1 at Sands Lane.

The visitors had a strong wind at their backs in the first period and took the lead courtesy of an own goal by a United defender.

The scores were even once again when Steve Pratt nodded in Hunmanby’s equaliser before half-time.

The hosts took control after the break and added a further four goals through man of the match Ryan Baldry, Matthew Atkinson, Dean Coates and substitute Reggie Smith.

Fishburn Park Reserves’ home clash with Westover Wasps Reserves was brought to an early conclusion due to adverse weather conditions, with the visitors leading 1-0.

The game’s only goal arrived following a goalmouth scramble, a combination of Shaun Wood and Sam Turner eventually forcing the ball over the line.

Leaders Eastway Sports extended their lead at the top of the table to five points with a 4-1 home victory over Commercial.

Itis-Itis Rovers continued their impressive recent form with a 5-1 win on the road at Sleights Reserves.
