Bouncing back from long lay-off

For saying we haven’t played for five weeks we did really well on Saturday against an unbeaten Beverley Town team .

In fact we were unlucky not to win it. Ben Luntley missed a penalty at the end, but they are never easy.

He scored our goal earlier in the match though, so I can’t complain.

Our midfield two of Gary and Neil Thomas coped well with a very strong Beverley side, while at the back Ricky Nock hardly gave former Scarborough Athletic striker Rob Northen a kick.

I wasn’t there last time we came up against Beverley, but I understand we were four goals down at half-time.

This time around we started solidly and made it hard for them.

We are now in a nice run of home fixtures, kicking off on Saturday with a game against Hessle Rangers.

That is followed a week after by the home game with Bransholme Athletic and then comes the League Cup encounter with Hessle United from the division below.

The good thing at the moment is the fact that we have a good squad and a strong bench.

We had some very good lads that we could have brought on Saturday and that will continue to be improved over the next few weeks.

Martin Barnes will be back with us shortly after his leg break and Aidan Thomas is getting there as well, coming back from a niggling knee injury.

He played a bit of Sunday football last weekend to get him back into it, so that will help him out.

At the moment things are going well for us, let’s hope that continues.
