Sculcoates Amateurs were no match for Beverley Town as they eased into the next round of the cup.
Rich Jagger got the response he wanted from a much-changed Town team who run out comfortable 5-1 winners at Norwood.
Beverley Town started the game with intent and by the break were two goals up. Joe Norton opened the scoring while a rare goal from Ryan Saltmer doubled the lead before halftime.
Better was to come in the second half as Jaggers sided create a host of chances with Michael O’Connell pulling all the strings.
Town added a further three goals in the second period. Stuart Oliver, a penalty from O’Connell and an own goal sealed the win. Sculcoates did find the back of the net but it was to be just a consolation goal.
While this was a great result for Town they could have far more goals. Alex Stark worked tirelessly up top but could not hit the target. When he finally did score his effort was ruled out for offside.
Joe Norton Makes History For Town In Win Over Sculcoates
Beverley Town Football Club made their return to Norwood only last week following an extensive investment made by the club.
Having drawn a blank last weekend, it will Norton who forever carry the honour of being the first player to score in Town colours on their newly laid pitch.
For Jagger, while he will be pleased with the result should even happier about his side’s performance. They were head and shoulders above their pitiful showing last weekend.
O’Connell, who was named as HU17s man of the match can also reflect on what was a good day for the ageing midfielder. His creativity flowed throughout the match while his pinpoint passing unlocked Sculcoates defence with ease.
Jagger will certainly be looking for his side to continue where they left off next week. The coming weeks over the festive period could well define their season which includes a doubleheader with Pocklington Town.
