Player-boss Sam Medd shone as Scalby moved away from the second division relegation zone with a hard-earned 4-3 win at derby rivals FC Rosette.

Jamie Deyes opened the scoring for the Newby side with a tap-in after error in the Scalby defence

Scalby got back on level terms when Medd scored from a corner and an own goal from another setpiece on 15 minutes put the visitors in front.

Aiden Thomas skinned the Rosette right-back and smashed home a third for Scalby on the half-hour mark, but three minutes later Al Wray's left-footed drive into the bottom corner - after a poor Scalby clearance - gave the hosts hope.

Rosette keeper Mikey Harland then made a first-class save to deny Craig Rackham two minutes before the half-time break.

The home side started the second half strongly, former Scalby player Tom Manson missing a sitter.

This proved costly as Scalby then reclaimed control of the match, Harland making two more top saves to deny Rob Speight and Ben Webster.

The away side restored their two-goal advantage with Dan Peel's header from a Speight cross, and although Joe Logan hit a third for Rosette from a setpiece Scalby held on for a crucial three points.

Medd was named as the man of the match at centre-back, just edging out Ben Dolan at right-back, while Harland was the Rosette star man for a succession of superb saves which kept his side in the game.

Filey Town Reserves fought back from 1-0 down to claim a 3-2 home win against Edgehill Reserves.

The away side led by a solitary goal at the interval, but Max Gage's header levelled early in the second period.

Aaron Howard, who had already hit the post twice and bar once with earlier efforts, then fired Town in front, and although Edgehill levelled they were reduced to 10 men on 75 minutes as they had a player sent off.

Five minutes later Joe Gage scored the winner, beating a player before placing the ball through a defender's and the keeper's legs.

Central midfielders Lee Lambert and Nathan Robson shared the Town man of the match award.

Leaders West Pier Reserves powered to a 4-0 home win against Duchess, who paid the penalty for missing two spot-kicks.

Lewis Short put the hosts in front after only 10 minutes, Rich Tolliday doubling this lead with a volley from the edge of the penalty area.

Tolliday added a second on the hour mark, shortly after this Ian Laing's penalty was saved by Rich Curtis - after he had fouled to concede the spot-kick.

Striker Tolliday then completed his hat-trick with a neat backheel flick from a low cross, Duchess' miserable afternoon compounded when JP Watson missed from the spot.

Pier chief Johnny McGough said: "It was a great team performance, but Mikey Anderson deserves a mention for his best display in a Pier shirt."

Seamer Sports Reserves cruised to a 6-2 win at Cayton Corinthians Reserves, Tommy Adams and Daz Hastie notching two goals apiece for the victors.

Ryan Jackson and Hastie fired Seamer into a 2-0 half-time lead, Adams making it 3-0 after the break before Dan Jewitt scored the goal of the game, hammering the ball past the Cayton keeper from the halfway line after the latter had miscued a clearance.

Adams added his second to make it 5-0, before James Barber and new signing Tom Goodwin struck to give Cayton hope before Hastie rounded off the win.

Centre-back Lee Tate was the man of the match for Seamer, with Phil Meads the star man for Cayton.

Newlands Reserves winger Tom Jenkinson fired in two as his side won 4-1 at home to Snainton.

Left-winger Tom Jenkinson nodded in the first after a mix-up in the Snainton defence, Joe Hitchcock putting the Snainton defence in a frenzy with a fine finish to make it 2-0, Keith Savage replying for the villagers on the stroke of half-time.

Man of the match Jenkinson's cracking strike, the goal of the game, restored Newlands' two-goal lead after the interval, Liam Mancrief completing the scoring.

Callum Fairley was man of the match for the visitors.
