Pickering Knights went above mid-table rivals Heslerton Reserves after beating the villagers 3-1 on their home turf.

Strikers Rowan South and Adam Ridley bagged a goal apiece for the Knights, with midfielder Josh Fawcett completing the scoring for the visitors.

Left-sided midfielder Greg Fawcett was the man of the match for Pickering.
