Whitby Fishermen drew 2-2 with Division One’s bottom side Westover Wasps, on Wednesday evening.

Aaron Leeman put Mark Storr’s side ahead with just five minutes on the clock, but the Wasps scored twice before half-time to turn the game on its head.

Jack South netted the first for the home side before Chris Hannam hit a second.

The visitors earned themselves a share of the spoils thanks to Dan Smith’s second-half strike.

Striker Leeman was named as the Fishermen’s man of the match.

In Division Three, Sleights Reserves lost to a resurgent Itis Itis Rovers by a 5-2 scoreline.

Taylor Humble’s left wing cross sailed over the home keeper’s head to give Sleights an early lead but Ross Kevan set up Sam Broadbent to level things up.

Jack Ramos’ penalty then moved Itis Itis ahead but Adam Entwhistle drilled a strike through a crowded box to level things up at 2-2.

The home side then pulled clear as the game wore on and a David Young header from a corner, Luke Jones’ strike into the top corner and a Ben Bradley effort wrapped up the points.

Humble was the Whitby side’s star man on the night.
