Trafalgar Reserves wrapped up the Sunday League Division Two title after a comfortable 4-0 at rivals FILO.

Man of the match Danny Glendinning put Traf Reserves 1-0 up after being teed up by Tom Scales before Chris Cass doubled their lead heading into the break with a stunning strike from distance.

Traf's onslaught of the FILO goal continued after the break and Martyn Ferrey sent Glendinning through to net his second and make it 3-0 before Luke Jones scored the goal of the game after cutting inside his marker and firing in to wrap things up.

Delighted player-boss Mikey Barker said: "Absolutely delighted for the whole team, it's been a team effort all year.

"I didn't come here to make friends, I came to win trophies and we've done just that.

"Our 2-1 win at Fylingdales with 10 men and our 4-2 win against Newlands Reserves stand out for me, but it's been a good team effort all season long."

Cayton hammered nine-man Alma 12-0.

Danny Collins grabbed four goals, Isaac Sands hit a hat-trick and Harry Sleep added a double, while their other goals came from Jon Hodgson, Tyler Hanlon and Ethan Ingle.

Fylingdales Reserves also picked up a resounding win, beating Barrowcliff Reserves 13-2.

Si Forde hit four, Harry Purves added three and Ben Thompson found the net twice.

Their other goals came from Rich Roach, Taylor Humble, Josh Hopley and Andrew Marshall.

Forde was Dales' man of the match.

West Pier battled back to beat Fylingdales 4-2 and move into the final of the Senior Cup.

Paddy Parke's men started slugglishly and fell behind to Ryan Braithwaite's strike, but a quick tactical change by boss Paddy Parke saw them level through Cameron Dobson after a long throw into the box.

Dales netted just before the break through Sam Richardson, but Pier improved after the switcharound and levelled when Luke Delve was brought down in the area and he buried from the spot himself.

A beautifully guided header into the bottom corner from Delve put his side 3-2 up before both keepers were called upon to keep their sides in it.

A bizarre handball in the area by a Dales man allowed Delve the chance to wrap up the win for his side, and he made no mistake from the spot.

Parke said: "On a different day it could've been a 6-5 game, both keepers made good saves. We just took our chances better than they did."

Sam Hyde and Delve were singled out by boss Parke.

Dales boss John Cuffling singled out goalscorer Richardson as his side's man of the match.

Newlands failed to raise a side for their clash with rivals Trafalgar in the only scheduled Division One clash.
