ANGEL 1 NEWLANDS 6 (Bates 3, McCoubrey, Jack Hakings, Swales)

Target man Lewis Weller was in superb form for the victors.

ITIS ITIS 4 WEST PIER RESERVES 10 (Reid 4, Midgley 2, Weetman, Birley pen, Howarth, Farnell)

A superb team performance saw Andy Goodwin’s West Pier Reserves make progress in the Kenward Cup following a 10-4 success against Itis Itis.

Chris Weetman was in the thick of the action early on, earning a penalty for Pier that was calmly despatched by Danny Birley.

Weetman’s corner then found Luke Midgely, who made it 2-0.

Itis Itis hit back before Midgely added his second for 3-1.

The home side found themselves back in the hunt again after they made it 3-2, but they were again further behind after Graeme Reid smashed in a stunning strike from distance before netting again shortly afterwards to send his side in at the break 5-2 ahead.

Weetman netted himself after the break to make it 6-2, but the home side battled back yet again to make it 6-4.

Reid was at it again though as he completed his hat-trick before he bagged his fourth to make it 8-4 and put the game well and truly to bed.

Goals from Damian Howarth and Rob Farnell wrapped things up for Goodwin’s men.

WEST PIER 4 ROSCOE’S BAR 6 (G Hepples 4, C Hepples 2)

Lee Paterson’s Roscoe’s Bar side produced a huge upset as they beat West Pier 6-4 despite a spirited fight back from the home side.

Roscoe’s took the lead after former Scarborough Athletic midfielder Gary Hepples raced onto a through-ball and finished neatly.

Hepples was soon at it again after a wind-assisted punt forward found its way to him and he finished convincingly again for 2-0.

The home side were stunned again when Hepples completed his hat-trick to ensure his side held a 4-0 half-time lead.

Hepples then turned provider to seemingly put the game beyond any doubt after the interval as be crossed for his brother Carl to make it 5-0.

Pier hit back but Gary Hepples netted his fourth to re-assert Roscoe’s dominance at 6-1.

Parke’s men weren’t done just yet though and fired three goals in quick succession to set up a tense finale at 6-4.

The home side had their chances to draw level but couldn’t find the back of the Roscoe’s net and the away side took the points.

Boss Paterson singled out both Hepples brothers, as well as left-back Liam Rowley, as his side’s star men.

FYLINGDALES 2 (Brennan, Heyes) CAYTON 1 (Collins)

Fylingdales hit back from a goal behind at home to Cayton to collect three points.

Dales missed a host of chances to take the lead and were punished when Cayton’s Danny Collins scored with a sublime lob that clipped the bar on its way in to give the away side a 1-0 lead.

Cayton held their lead until the 70-minute mark when a Dales corner wasn’t cleared properly and Lee Brennan smashed in from the edge of the box to level matters up.

The turnaround was completed when neat approach play by Dales eventually saw the ball laid off to Barry Heyes, who hammered in from 10 yards.

TRAFALGAR 3 (Exley 2, R Pinder) TENNYSON 0

A depleted Trafalgar side edged to a 3-0 success against Tennyson.

Tennyson’s keeper Rich Curtis was in fine form to restrict Liam Salt’s men to three goals.

Sean Exley bagged a brace for the division one champions, while Rob Pinder also got his name on the scoresheet.

Mark Barber was singled out for particular praise by Traf boss Salt.

Forward Al Wray was in fine form as he bagged a hat-trick, one of his goals coming from the penalty spot.

His brother Jamie also registered, while their other two goals came through Tommy Blackburn and Jack Pinder.

Joint-boss Jenkinson praised the efforts of hosts Fylingdales, while he picked Jamie Wray as his side’s stand-out performer after his efforts on the right hand side of their midfield.

WHITBY WANDERERS 9 (Wilson 3, Keys 3, Wiggins 2, Kilpatrick) ALMA 2

Jack Wilson and Jericho Keys were both in superb form for Wanderers as they notched hat-tricks on their way to a comfortable 9-2 win against Alma.

Alex Wiggins also bagged a brace as the hosts bounced back from going a goal down early on to dominate the latter stages and run away with the clash.

Debutant Mike Kilpatrick rounded off the scoring, while hat-trick hero Wilson was named as the home side’s man of the match.


Ayton endured a miserable morning at Gallows Close as they succumbed to a 6-1 defeat at Newlands Reserves.

Newlands led 2-0 at the interval and were 3-0 up when Ayton’s Arthur Edge was sent for first use of the showers after receiving a straight red card following an altercation with Newlands’ Travis Wood.

Ayton’s Corey White made it 3-1, but their hope was short lived as Newlands ran in three more to run out 6-1 winners.


Commercial edged out Castle at a blustery Oliver’s Mount as both sides struggled to get the ball on the deck.

MacAuley Youngson scored twice for the victors, one a fine header after three minutes.

Goalkeeper Jamie Fowler scored from the penalty spot and substitute Sam Foy netted his first goal for the club later on to round off the scoring for Geoff Osguthorpe’s men.

The manager said: “Wind ruined any sort of football that could have been played, we were a bit lacklustre but did enough to win the game without any real problems.”
