Report: 1874 Northwich 3 – 0 Selby Town

October 11, 2020

FA Vase – 10th October 2020 The Robins were outclassed by 1874 Northwich, a team that were FA Vase semi- finalists in 2017/2018, and were top of the North West Counties League Premier Division by eight clear points, when the season finished last March. On today’s showing it would not be a surprise to see the 1874 Northwich team challenging for promotion again. Selby struggled manfully, but did not have the attacking edge to really trouble their opponents. But for, yet another, stellar performance from goalkeeper Dylan Parkin, the damage may have been far, far worse.  Team wise Town lined up with the same back four as Tuesday, again missing three regulars. Zeph Thomas dropped back into midfield, to partner Charlie Clamp, and the returning Danny Snaith. Up front, no Joe

Report: Selby Town 2 – 3 Swallownest

September 27, 2020

NCEL Division One – 26th Septemeber 2020 The second home league game of the week, and once again The Robins left The Fairfax Plant Hire Stadium empty handed. In truth, they got what they deserved, generally lacking in creativity, bite and defensive solidity. Early doors, of course, but after two home games Town are only saved from being bottom of the table by goal difference. Selby suffered a blow immediately before kick- off with George Bissett pulling out, Cam Collins replacing him. In a change to the usual formation, Town played Ryan Gothard, Brett Lucas, and Cam Collins as a three man defence, with Nick Kennedy, and Jon-Paul Vass operating as wing backs. In midfield Ryan Cooper came in to

Report: Tadcaster Albion 5 – 3 Selby Town

August 27, 2020

Pre-Season Friendly – 26th August 2020 An entertaining game with plenty of goals. There were some pointers for the season ahead. Perhaps the most concerning from the Robin’s point of view, was how defensive frailties were laid bare so frequently by a quicker, more mobile, Tadcaster Albion outfit, that could, and should, have scored more.  Team wise , Christian Fox was still having difficulties at left back, with the unavailability of Luke Sellers, and Jon- Paul Vass, meaning George Bissett was forced to play in that role. Brett Lucas, and Ryan Gothard returned to the middle of the back line. In effect, Town started only with Zeph Thomas and Brad Freer in midfield, Selby starting with a trialist playing up front, wide on the right.   It didn’t take long

Report: Selby Town 2-1 Goole AFC

August 16, 2020

Pre-Season Friendly – 15th August 2020 The Robins retained the Eric Lawton Cup at Goole AFC’s expense, after a close, hard fought contest. For their third game in a week Town were below par, lacking in energy, andsecond best for much of the match. In the end, steadfast goalkeeping from Dylan Parkin, and sharpshooting from Liam Flanagan, were just about enough to win the day for Selby. Luke Sellers was at the ground, but on crutches, after a tackle last Tuesday, so Christian Fox was forced into one change, Jon- Paul Vass starting at left back.  The match began, and The Robins were nearly two down in the first minute. Selby were grateful to their goalkeeper Dylan Parkin for sprawling saves, as Goole men got behind the defence twice in quick succession.  This heralded a first twenty

Report: Selby Town 0 – 2 Winterton Rangers

March 8, 2020

NCEL Division One – 7th March 2020 The Robin’s largest crowd of the season, the biggest crowd in the league on the day, saw a tight, tense match of the highest quality, and well befitting of a top of the table clash. Generally, a terrific advert for non- league football.  Unfortunately, Town were beaten by the better team on the day, to continue their poor home record against the top sides. Winterton played the occasion, and the erratic referee, far better than Selby did. In a match of relatively few chances, the Selby attack was well contained, with Winterton enjoying the best of what chances there were.  With Josh Rogerson serving the last game of his suspension, Nick Kennedy continued at right back. Carl Stewart commenced a lengthy suspension, so Danny Frost moved up front, allowing Danny Snaith to return in midfield. New signing
