Beverley Town Academy came up trumps as brushed aside Hedon Rangers Reserves 5-1 at Longcroft School in a match they simply had to win.
Following a ‘terrible’ performance last weekend that saw them drummed 6-2 by West Hull Amateurs, Town’s third string showed the right attitude and put the effort in order to secure all three points.
First-half strikes from Ben Fletcher and Daniel Atkinson along with three second half goals from Stew Scott, Owen Parnaby and Danny Deeming secured the points for Town.
Speaking after the game gaffer Stew Scott said;
“The lads did exactly what was asked of them after last week. Everyone put a shift in, and I can’t ask for any more of them.”
“Their attitudes where spot on from the first whistle to the last.”
“A massive well done to Deeming who came on after 30 minutes for an injured Ryan Fitzgerald and was, in my opinion, pure quality.”
“Man of the Match was Connor Binney. He was making the difference in the middle of the park with myself and Tom Parkinson adding to his quality.”
“Since Ellis Horsefield and Pip Pearson have come down to be part of the management team. The squad are starting to gel and there’s a good vibe in the dressing room at the moment.”
This win means Town now sit in fifth place in the East Riding County League on eighteen points from their thirteen games, a remarkable turn given their start to the season.
Scott will now be hoping his side can maintain the form and spirit shown in the match against Rangers as they take a break from the East Riding County League and focus on the cup.
Next weekend, Beverley Town Academy takes on Reckitts Reserves in the East Riding County FA Intermediate quarter final of the cup at Longcroft School in the 2PM Kick Off.
