“It was an excellent performance from the lads and a thoroughly deserved win.”

“In the first half we were frightening going forwards, Stark and Craig Muirhead caused all sorts of problems, and our midfield was a constant threat.” 

“Second half we had to do the dirty work, and we did a fine job. I thought Tom Davies was outstanding at the back, and to be honest every man but in a great shift out there.”

Beverley Town are back in action this weekend when they travel to Atwick Road as they take on newly promoted Hornsea Town.

Elsewhere in the Humber Premier League, new boys Walkington also earned their first points of the season with a 4-3 win over East Riding Rangers.

Walkington will be looking to back that up this Saturday when they welcome Pocklington Town to Broadgates in the 2PM kickoff.
