Beverley Town Reserves concluded the first month of the season with four straight wins going into October top of the East Riding County Premier League.
Town’s second string capped of what has been a good month for the side with comprehensive 4-2 win over local rivals Leven Member Club at Longcroft School.
Gaffer, Edward Grady described the performance as ‘pleasing’ praising the youngsters who were called up to the squad, he said;
“This was another pleasing performance from the squad although the game should have been put to bed earlier after missing several chances and against better teams we will be punished for those misses.”
“Credit to young Jake Cattermole and Ryan Poultney who stepped up from our academy side and performed well.”
Town who went into the match having not conceded a single goal in three games were stunned when Leven took the inside the first six minutes of the match.
The response from Town was swift with Adam Gibson nodding home to get Town back on level terms. Growing in confidence Town dominated the game as Phil Gardener and Jake Cattermole pulled the strings in midfield.
A set piece from Matthew Dixon that saw his cross end up in the back of the net gave Town the advantage for the time in match.
In the second period Town were quick out of the blocks sealing all three points thanks to a brace from Rob Northern who has now score five times in just three matches.
Leven did get on the score sheet again after a unusual handling error by Town’s keeper allowing the ball to squeeze through his grasp and making it a nervy end.
Town return to action this Saturday when they face Flambrough in the cup. They will be back in league action in two weeks when they will look to increase their advantage at the top of the table.
