North Ferriby finally recorded their first win of the season in what turned out to be a great performance against Frickley, with Ferriby comfortably winning 4-0.
The game started quite slowly with no real chances with both sides trying to find there feet in the match. Chris hall had the first chance for Ferriby in the 16th minute. His 25 yard shot was close but flew just over the bar. Four minutes later Ryan Kendall had Ferriby’s first shot on target when his drive stung the hands of Tom Woodhead the Frickley goalkeeper.
Just a minute later Jack Muldoon hit the bar with a header and the ball was out behind by Frickley for a corner. From the resulting corner in the 22nd minute Ferriby took the lead. The ball was swung to the back post where Gregg Anderson’s header came down off the crossbar and into the net.
Ferriby continued to press and in the 26th minute Danny Clarke hit a shot from the edge of the area that was straight at the goalkeeper.
After another quiet 20 minutes Ferriby doubled their lead. Liam King received the ball and burst into the right hand side of the box. With the goalkeeper advancing he coolly swerved the ball round the keeper and into the top left hand corner. This was the final incident of the half so Ferriby led 2-0 at half time.
Frickley had the first half chance of the second half. In the 57th minute Frickley had a 30 yard shot that drifted just over the bar. Two minutes later Ryan Kendall sprinted into the box but curled his shot wide. In the 66th minute Ferriby extended their lead through substitute Gary Bradshaw. Bradshaw tried a bicycle kick which failed but as he landed he swung his boot at the ball and it trickled past the goalkeeper and into the net.
Ferriby continued to create chances and in the 78th minute Ryan Kendall’s cross was headed over by Bradshaw. 5 minutes later Bradshaw had another chance when he shot high and wide from the edge of the box. In the 90th minute Frickley almost grabbed a consolation goal when they had a fierce shot saved by Adam Nicklin who had had little to do all game.
In the 91st minute Ferriby sub Lee Morris headed a corner onto the bar. Danny Clarke put the gloss on Ferriby’s win a minute later. He surged onto a through ball and although his shot was slowed by Woodhead’s touch it still had enough power to trickle over the line. The win was sealed.
FT North Ferriby 4-0 Frickley Athletic
This was a fantastic win for Ferriby and a great confidence booster to kick start their season after a slow start. For the first time this season Ferriby put most of their chances away and this resulted in them demolishing an extremely poor Frickley side who will be lucky not to be relegated this season.
