Ayton Under-10s welcomed Scholes Park Tigers and the hosts started brightly and scored the first goal through Harry Maw from a corner.

The same player then scored again with a good finish from another corner and Jack Townsend netted soon after finishing off a great passing move.

Scholes scored right on the stroke of half-time and then in the second half they dominated, although Ayton scored another goal through Alfie Thomas.

Alfie Thomas and Jamie Watson were named man of the match for Ayton.

Heslerton Under-Eights Jaguars started and finished well, though were a little disappointing in between as they slipped to defeat against Eastfield.

Alfie Rouph again sparkled for the Jaguars, protecting goalkeeper Joey Palmer superbly.

Harley Bott and Josh Harrington put in crunching tackles but Eastfield broke through and scored.

Eastfield grew in confidence, though substitutes Owen Ellis, Tia-May Walker and Freddie Lunn put the pressure back on them.

In the second game, with the rapidly-improving Ryan Cooper and Aaron Walton impressing, the Jaguars sprung back to life with well-deserved goals.

Man of the match for Heslerton was Owen Ellis.

Heslerton Under-Nines Pirates visited Seamer FC for a difficult fixture.

Seamer went into the break a couple of goals up and added another just after the restart.

Jack Smith gave the visitors hope with a fine strike, but the Pirates then got caught as they pushed to find a second goal.

Pirates’ man of match went to Alfie Bradbury.

A Smith goal and one from Oliver Dade were enough to give the Pirates a win in a close second game.

Kenzie Palliser took man of match honours for Pirates.

Heslerton Under-10s travelled to West Pier and both teams put on two fantastic games.

Chances came and went for both sides in the first game with some fine goalkeeping and defending ensuring the scores stayed level.

However, near the end the home side found a way through and they held on for the win.

Man of the match went to keeper Jake Allardice.

The second game was a carbon copy with both teams creating plenty of chances and the final score the same with man of the match going to Ethan Sellers for a tenacious midfield performance.

Seamer Spartans Under-Sevens took on Filey Holt in a superb game in which both teams battled.

Reuben Agar made some superb acrobatic saves to keep Seamer in the game after they conceded early on.

Both teams tried playing out from the back and Seamer managed to score a late equaliser with Jacob Hakings playing a great through-ball to Junior Hawkes, who slotted in the bottom corner.

Seamer manager Robbie Hawkes said: “The whole team were fantastic with Ralph Stubbings showing great intelligence in protecting the team along with the rest of his teammates.

“Big thanks to Holt’s Alan Banks who was brilliant with all the kids during the game.”

Scholes Park Raiders Under-12s met Flamborough FC.

Both teams were clearly eager for a win and this showed on the pitch and Raider’s extra man and a strong midfield paid dividends.

Four cracking goals came from Reuben Hartley, a hat-trick from Harley Adams, two from Coby Rowe and Charlie Doubtfield-Langfield and one each from Charlie Baldwin and Jamie Cross saw Scholes romp to a 13-3 victory.

Heslerton Under-12s endured a difficult game away to Seamer.

The hosts started very strongly and raced to a 3-0 early lead.

Heslerton found their rhythm and were unlucky not to score, but found themselves 4-0 down at the break.

A more even second half saw some exceptional tackling, particularly from man of the match Dylan Fawcett.

Heslerton scored two good goals through Billy Keough, but could not repeat the come-back of the previous week, and Seamer eventually won 9-2.

Heslerton Hawks Under-14s drew 3-3 against Hunmanby Under-14s.

The Hawks struck late to rescue a point with a two-goal salvo at the end of keenly contested match.

Hunmanby started the brighter, testing Brad Spiller, who was at his commanding best for the Hawks.

Despite good performances from Josh Robertson and Logan Craggs, Heslerton were slowly played out of the game.

It looked like Jayden Isaac’s lobbed goal would be of consolation only.

Yet character runs through the Hawks and a late flurry saw bodies thrown forward.

It reaped rewards with Isaac completing a hat-trick to leave Heslerton delighted to salvage a point.

Scalby Under-14s beat a brave Newlands team by 12 goals to progress to the next round of the cup.

Striker Reuben Staveley helped himself to a hat-trick and Jake Reeves also got a double.

Man of match Tyler Smith grabbed one goal and also set up three goals during an instrumental performance.

Liam Coulson (pictured below) scored the goal of the match with a 25-yard strike into the top corner.

Oliver Backhouse’s first goal in four seasons was another highlight of the game.

Connor Avison, Ted Edwards, Louis Kille and an own goal completed the scoring.

Keeper Toby Taylor was Newlands’ man of the match.

Heslerton Juniors Under-14s suffered only their second defeat of the season going down 7-2 to Whitby Fishermen.

Heslerton opened the scoring with a fierce shot from man of the match Tom Stockdale, then in the second half captain Ollie Stanton converted a spot-kick after Tyler Green had been upended in the box.
