Newlands and Traf both maintained their winning form as the Sunday League Division One title battle continued tonight.

Newlands had to work hard for their 7-1 win at second-placed West Pier, while leaders Trafalgar powered to a 13-2 win at basement club Cayton Corinthians.

Rich Tolliday gave Pier a deserved early lead in their home game against Newlands, the striker lifting his shot over the Newlands keeper Martin Cappleman after only six minutes.

Ten minutes later Dan Freer levelled with a close-range finish after a goalmouth scramble, but there was no further score before half-time.

Newlands went in front through a cracking strike from Drew McCoubrey in the first minute of the second half, but a scratch Pier side refused to give in and only a cracking save from Cappleman stopped them from levelling.

The visitors raced straight up the other end and went in front and they then pulled clear, the second-half efforts coming via a Danny Glendinning hat-trick and a brace from Ryan Rivis.

Jack Ramos was named as man of the match for Newlands for a cracking game in midfield, while keeper Jonny Hyde and centre-back Sam Hyde shared the plaudits for Pier.

Five goals from Jimmy Beadle helped Trafalgar romp to a 13-2 win at Cayton.

Chris Dove also banged in a hat-trick for the visitors, with Luke Jones hitting a brace and other goals coming from Alex Sheader, Sam Pickard, and Mikey Barker.

Harry Sleep hit two superb goals for Cayton, with Traf boss Col Jenkinson quick to praise Sleep's brace.

He said: "Both of the Cayton efforts were great goals, Sam Pickard also scored a stunning goal for us smashing it right into the top corner after having had his back to goal while Alex Sheader's finish capped a great team move. The man of the match award should be shared between the whole team."

Fylingdales Reserves earned a 2-1 home win against Scalby in Division Two thanks to goals from Lewis Peel and Tommy Gray.
