Joe Gallagher was Edgehill’s man of the match.

Filey Town cruised to a 3-0 win on the road at Seamer.

Jack South netted Town’s opener before Tom Micklethwaite bagged their second after following up his saved spot-kick and then Liam Wainwright grabbed the third and final goal in a solid team performance from Town.

Sherburn dumped West Pier Reserves out of the Scarborough & District FA Junior Cup after beating Johnny McGough’s side 3-0.
