Alex Stark and Ryan Saltmer both scored as Beverley Town Football Club made it back to back wins at Norwood.
Rich Jagger had said ahead of the match that South Cave United would be a tough opponent. However, it was Town who secured all three points in this evenly matched contest.
Speaking after the game Jagger praised his side. He said;
“This was another good performance against a competitive side. I thought that in the first half we were excellent.”
“We moved the ball quickly, defended well and were also good in possession. Our front two were also a real handful all afternoon.”
“In the second half, we had to roll up our sleeves and get the job done. Which was exactly what we did.”
Jagger was forced to improvise up top with pairing Stark and Saltmer up front. His faith was repaid with both finding the back of the net.
Stark opened the scoring for Town slotting home from 10 years, while Saltmer made it two in two as he nodded home from a Michael O’Connell corner.
