Welcome to the first of many of this new weekly feature on Hull.Today where we go around the grounds of local football teams and look at their performances and results!
Hull City 0 – 0 Sunderland (Hull Win on Penalties)
Certainly not the most exciting fixture to kick off the season for The Tigers, but Hull are through to the next round of the Carabao Cup.
The first half provided fruitless for the Tigers, summed up with Tom Eaves having to leave the pitch with an injury on the half-hour mark.
The Tigers only managed a single shot on target through the entire 90 minutes, but held their nerve in the penalty shootout.
One of the only positives to come out of the match was the performance of last season’s second choice keeper Matt Ingram who kept the Tigers in the game with a number of quality saves.
North Ferriby FC 3 – 1 Albion Sports AFC
Two goals from Scott Philips and a third from Daniel East saw North Ferriby FC continue their pre-season run with 211 in attendance.
Ferriby will be looking to build up form ahead of their FA Vase 1st Round Qualifying match against North West Counties team St Helens Town.
Bridlington Town 0 – 5 Spennymoor Town
The Seasiders continued their pre-season against a strong Spennymoor Town team, who showed why they’re a couple of leagues above their hosts.
Glen Taylor opened up the scoring in just the third minute of the match, before Jamie Spencer, who happened to assist with the opening goal, was sent for an early shower for an off-the-ball collision with Town captain Andy Norfolk.
Spennymoor continued their scoring, but the Seasiders made a good showing for themselves considering their higher-level opponents.
Barton Reserves 1 – 4 East Hull FC
East Hull FC continued their winning ways against the Barton Reserves. With East Hull looking to make a better showing of themselves after last season’s lackluster results back-to-back wins will certain lift the team’s spirits and the fans’ expectations of the long season ahead.
Beverley Town 6 – 1 Brandesburton AFC
Beverley Town built up toward their Humber Premier League season by slotting six past Brandesburton AFC. New Town boss Mike Thompson will be happy with his side’s attacking play as they look toward promotion in the upcoming season.
Hornsea Town 3 – 4 Beverley Town Reserves
Hornsea suffered a couple of injuries early on but still managed to take the game to Beverley’s reserves. Town will be looking to build up some match fitness ahead of their Humber Premier season, and trying to avoid any more injuries to their depleted squad.
