The hosts had to work for the points, though, after Signs started strongly and took the lead in the seventh minute through Neil Richardson.

Half an hour later, the scores were levelled as Keelan Simpson brought down a Matty Butler cross before turning and firing the ball into the bottom corner.

The second half saw the Kirkby team return with more urgency and within five minutes of the restart they were in front, Jordan Rivis ghosting past three defenders before finishing from a tight angle.

In the 65th minute the hosts made it 3-1 when Dave Gardner followed up after the keeper had tipped an initial attempt onto the crossbar.

Signs responded and were rewarded 15 minutes from time when Alex Day scored, but the home side hung on to take all of the points.

Strensall fought back after the break with goals from Danny Franks, Jason Heslop, Jack Bell and Ali Bell.

However, a Josh Leeming penalty rounded off an 8-4 victory for Haxby and kept them six points clear at the top of the table.
