Beverley Town Reserves made it seven straight wins in league and cup with a 6-3 win over AFC North in the East Riding County League.
Gaffer Edward Grady said he had ‘mixed’ feelings about the result in match that saw his side put in two very different performances in each half.
Town were forced into three changes after last week’s victory. Tom Proud was missing due to a photo shoot for Decathlon, Jake Cattermole being called up to the first team and Louis Stockman missing through injury.
Their absence saw Tom Davies come into centre midfield, Ryan Poultney returning after suspension and Adam Foster in for a rare start.
Town took advantage of the conditions in the first half as they went on a goal rampage scoring six times. Rob Northern continued his prolific start to season scoring four, while Adam Foster and Josh Davies also found the back of the net.
AFC North did get a consolation back from the spot as Town went into the break with the score at 6-1 to the home side.
In the second half Town failed to adapt and lost their way in the game letting in AFC North to score twice as the match concluded 6-3 to Town.
Commenting on his sides efforts Grady said;
“The first half was by far the best football the Reserves had played in some time. But unfortunately the second didn’t continue in the same manner, it was a poor showing.”
“We struggled to take our chances in the second half and playing against the wind, didn’t play the conditions well enough.”
“Credit must got AFC North, they kept fighting and worked they way back into the game with two quick fire goals making for a nervous last 10 minutes from us.”
Grady says he will be looking for a better effort from his side this weekend as they travel to LIV Supplies Reserves who sit bottom of the table.
