Division one

Cayton Corinthians 5 (Collins 3, J Best, Venner) Roscoes Bar 2 (Hadrick, G Hepples)

A Danny Collins treble helped Cayton Corinthians climb off the foot of the division one table, seeing off fellow strugglers Roscoes Bar 5-2.

Player-boss John Best led by example for the villagers, firing his 25-yard free-kick into the bottom corner of the net to hand the hosts a 15th-minute lead.

Martin Hadrick levelled the scores from a corner, but Collins - after fine interplay with Micky Dennis - restored the Cayton lead early in the second half.

Gary Hepples headed in to bring the scores level again but Collins then struck his second with a curling 25-yard free-kick to put Cayton back on top.

Josh Venner made it 4-2 and Collins then completed his hat-trick to seal the win.

Right-back Jake McAleese was the Cayton man of the match, while left-back Liam Rowley was named as the Roscoes star man.

Klosters 3 (A Townley 2, Rose) West Pier 2 (Provins, M Cooper)

Ten-man Klosters scored with the last kick of this game to secure victory against West Pier.

The hosts had most of the possession in the first half and went 1-0 five minutes before half-time when, after an Ash Townley knockdown, Georgie Rose fired his shot into the top corner of the net from the edge of the box.

Townley then made it 2-0 10 minutes into the second half with a composed finish.

The home side were cruising at this point but they then had a man sent off and this changed the game.

On 77 minutes Paul Provins pulled a goal back and with five minutes remaining Pier were given a penalty by ref John Chalk and Martin Cooper fired in the leveller from the spot.

After Pier had almost won the game with a chance in added time, Klosters snatched all three points with the last kick of the game when Townley smashed in a Sam Garnett corner at the back post.

Townley and Lee Luntley, at centre-half, were both first-class for Klosters in this dramatic victory.

Tennyson 3 (Johnson 2, Oxley) Fylingdales 5

A double from player-boss Billy-Jo Johnson failed to save a depleted Tennyson side from defeat against Fylingdales.

Dave Oxley also netted for the struggling hosts with a stunning 30-yard volley, with Matt Whitehall and Paul Brady on top form for Tennyson.

Division two

Trafalgar Reserves 3 (A Wray 2, J Pinder) Newlands Park Res 0

Al Wray’s superb performance helped leaders Trafalgar Reserves ease to a 3-0 victory at home to their nearest rivals in the second division title race.

Traf have now won all seven of their league matches and seem to be cruising to a straightforward title success if they maintain this form.

Man of the match Wray opened the scoring for Andy Noon’s side with a thumping shot from 35 yards out.

Jack Pinder doubled the home side’s lead in the second half with a tap-in at the back post.

Wray confirmed the win with a neat finish five minutes from time.
