Report By Philip Withers

Vanarama Conference North
North Ferriby United   1
Tom Denton 14

Brackley Town  1

Att: 265

More photos from the game can be seen via the link below

This was a game that Ferriby really should have won but they did not make the most of their opportunities, especially in the first-half.

In the end they could actually have lost as substitute Eric Odihambo wasted a golden opportunity in the dying moments of the game.

Ferriby controlled the first-half against a Brackley side that was well-organised defensively. However, the visitors still found Ferriby’s attacking play difficult to deal with.

FA Trophy Round 2 North Ferriby United V Hyde FC

Report By Philip Withers

North Ferriby United 2 – Hyde FC 0

Att: 265

More photos from this game can be found at

North Ferriby certainly deserved to win this game but they were made to work hard by a spirited and determined Hyde side.

It was an entertaining game played in a relentless wind that blew from end of the pitch throughout the game.This, obviously made it difficult for the players to judge the movement of the ball at times. Defending, in particular, was not always easy. Continue reading

North Ferriby United 2 Boston United 0

Report By: Phil Withers

After Boxing day’s disappointing performance at Gainsborough, Ferriby bounced back in style to gain a deserved victory over Boston United. This was the third time The Villagers have beaten Boston this season.

The first-half was entertaining without there actually being a lot of goalmouth incident. Ferriby carried the greater threat in the first-half with Adam Bolder and Liam King creating problems for Boston from midfield. Boston threatened on breaks as they struggled to break through Ferriby’s defence and midfield.

Boston opened with mark Jones firing wide from 20-yards whilst The Villagers responded with a promising attack that ended with Jason St Juste was tackled to gain a corner as he was about to shoot.

The only goal of the half came after 16 minutes from the only really threatening attempt either side had on goal. Mark Gray rising high in the goal area to head home Bolder’s beautifully flighted cross.

Neither keeper was forced in to a save for the rest of the half as occasional attempts on goal from both sides went wide or high,

Boston came out in the second-half determined to find an equaliser and pressed Ferriby for much of the half. However, like the first-half, their endeavour had little end-product as Ferriby defended well and closed down the visitors in midfield. This was largely reminiscent of Ferriby’s recent FA Trophy victory at Boston.

Boston twice came close to a goal in the 48th minute. Ferriby keeper Adam Nicklin turned round a shot from Jamie McGhee. The resulting corner finally ended with Scott Garner forcing Nicklin into a good save from close-range. These attempts were the closest Boston came to an equaliser.

Louis Bruce saw a header from 18-yards taken by Boston keeper Joel Dixon. Liam King then saw a shot blocked by one of his own players before curling a second shot Dixon. Ryan Kendall also saw a shot held by Dixon.

Boston only had two attempts on goal with Dayle Southwell sending both his efforts wide.

Ferriby clinched the game after 85 minutes. King ran on to Nathan Jarman’s flicked header to slide the ball past the advancing Dixon.

Ferriby finished the stronger and went close twice in added tome. King’s low shot was turned round by Dixon and Jarman headed a St Juste cross wide.

Ferriby manager Billy Heath commented, “This was the response I wanted and expected from the players. It was a tremendous performance. There were only two changes from Boxing Day but the difference was the attitude that was shown on the pitch.

We now need to build on this during the second half of the season and become more consistent. We are still capable of reaching the play-offs if we can find that consistency. We have kept a clean sheet today against a side that is very capable of scoring goals.”

This was a professional and purposeful performance by Ferriby who responded well to the criticism that followed the Boxing Day game and was an excellent way to finish the year.

Ferriby Draw With Second Place Fylde

Report By: Phil Withers

This was one of Ferriby’s best performances for some time. The whole side played consistently well throughout the game and, with a little more luck, could have taken all three points against second-placed Fylde.

An entertaining first-half saw few direct attempts on goal. Defences were largely on top throughout the half. Fylde were forced to play back a lot due to Ferriby’s pressure up-front and in midfield. Ferriby looked the more threatening but Fylde looked dangerous on the break.

Nathan Jarman and Liam King both went close for Ferriby in the first 15 minutes . Jason St Juste then brought a double save from Fylde keeper  Ben Hinchliffe.

Dean Downing Wins Yorkshire Regional Championship

Report: Paul Summers

Masters – Set around the historic battlefield of Towton, where Yorkshire defeated Lancashire in the War of the Roses, both the Masters and Elite Races delivered aggressive racing from the gun. The Masters event saw a break of 8 establish a 1 minute lead within the first two laps. This set the pattern for the rest of the race as the breakaway worked smoothly and the bunch failed to establish an effective chase. The winner would come from the break, and it was Rob Watkinson who took Gold in a fine solo effort that gained 10 seconds by the finishing line. Richard Moore took Silver in a hard fought sprint with Glen Turnball who claimed bronze.

Elites – The elite race followed a similar pattern, with two select groups forming during the early stages. As the race wore on, and the strong winds began to build, the two groups became one, and a flurry of attacking began. At the bell, it was Alastair Kay who led by 10 seconds, followed by a group of six containing pre race favourites Dean Downing and Tom Stewart. As the race entered the finishing straight, the break was back together, and it was Dean Downing who pipped Adam Duggleby to take the win in a fiercely contested sprint. Tom Stewart led in the remnants of the break to claim Bronze.
