It was another busy evening on the local sporting scene. Hall Road and North Ferriby both picked up victories in the league. Beverley ARLFC lost once again. Beverley Town are in action this evening.
Last week was a torrid week for Hall Road Rangers. Suffering defeats in two games, one of which was to the sound of 7-0 at Hallam. It looked like it might continue in a similar vein after last nights opponent Clipstone scored after just 8 minutes. In fact, Rangers came from behind twice on the evening to level the game and in the 88th minute, an own goal was the match-winner for Hall Road. Oliver Harsley has the full report: Clipstone 2-3 Hall Road Rangers.
North Ferriby seem to be getting better and better. Unbeaten so far this season the Villagers made it three wins on the spin, after thrashing Harrogate Railway Athletic. It was a great start when East scored inside the first thirty seconds, Buttle made it two in the 13th minute. Corner scored his first of the evening just before the half-hour, the Villagers led 3-0 at the break. Corner furthered his tally five minutes into the second half, completing his hat-trick eight minutes later. The rout was completed in the final moments by Forrester. Full time: North Ferriby 6-0 Harrogate Railway Athletic.
Beverley ARLFC were thumped by West Hull as their poor run of form continue. The Blue and Golds have had a tough season with illness and unavailability in a revamped competition which has seen them come up against some of the areas top amateur Rugby League outfits. The experience may help them in the long run but a 50-0 defeat such as last night will sting. Nick Robinson has the full report on last night.
Beverley Town will aim to gain revenge on South Cave as the two sides meet tonight. Mike Thompson’s men only dropped points once last season and that was a 4-1 defeat to South Cave. Town have had a strong start to the season with two 6-2 victories in a row.
Hull City had a quiet end to the transfer window. The only business came as young midfielder Harry Wood left on loan to League Two outfit, Scunthorpe United. Wood made his first-team debut away at Charlton on the final day of last season. The departure for the season makes it nine players leaving City on loan for this transfer window. Incoming over the summer nine players have joined the Tigers including fans favourite Tom Huddlestone returning.
