Town, claimed all three points at Longcroft School against Queens County AFC who were won the division one title last season to earn promotion.
County were on top in the match from the off as Town looked out of sorts against well drilled and solid opposition in County.
County capitalised on their dominance scoring the opener mid way through the first period. Town continued to struggle to get a foot hold in the game.
Following a two footed challenge on Town’s Adam Gibson County were reduced to ten men. Despite having a man advantage Town were still second best on the pitch.
Speaking after the match Grady said;
“Over all we did not play very well as a team. Our defence played very well, I was especially pleased byMike Dixon. “
“The turning point for us in the match was our bench. The introduction on Northen and Adam ‘ Z List’ Foster changed the match.”
“It was pleasing that the lads kept going, showed good character and battling team who will certainly take points of other sides this season.”
When asked about County’s red card he said;
“It was a definite red card. A two footed challenge and high, he really caught Adam. A real kick in the nuts.”
Town return to action next week when they face another tricky fixture away to Orchard Park. With both sides enjoying wins on the opening day they will each be looking to maintain their 100pc start in the East Riding County League.
