Report: Selby Town 3 – 2 Dronfield Town

August 10, 2019

NCEL Division One – 10th August 2019 The Robins duly registered their first victory of the season, needing two penalties to help dispose of Dronfield Town. Blustery conditions made playing football difficult, and Town made hard work of earning their victory.  Again, missing cricketers, and holiday makers, Selby were able to welcome back last season’s top scorer Liam Flanagan, playing in midfield. Danny Snaith was in the middle of the back four, with Josh Rogerson at right back, and Luke Sellars on the left flank.     The wind was blowing across the pitch, slightly favouring Selby Town. The Robins were soon on the front foot with the two Walkers, Josh and Danny, and Chris Jackson stretching the Dronfield defence.  Selby looked eager

Report: Ossett United 6 – 2 Selby Town

July 31, 2019

Preseason Friendly – 30th July 2019 It was a very wet night for our final pre-season friendly against Ossett United. Town’s lineup saw the return of Zac Lawrence and Joe Dale, Pete Lawrie back from sickness, and also the Walker brothers making an appearance. There was also a debut appearance for Jordan Carter. It was a tough game right from the start, with Ossett immediately piling on the pressure making it difficult for Selby to assert control onto the game. Ossett didn’t let up, firing numerous shots towards goal leaving Selby to try and clear the ball away, searching for space upfront. Finally, the Ossett players saw their hard work pay off as a scramble in the box saw them

Report: Selby Town 0 – 3 Worksop Town

July 14, 2019

Preseason Friendly – 13th July 2019 Despite the result ,this was probably The Robin’s best pre- season  performance so far. Selby gave as good as they got, until they wilted in the heat , conceding three late goals to their classy opponents.    There were a number of absences  meaning  Selby fielded a scratch eleven, and, perhaps more importantly in the final scheme of things, could only deploy two substitutes. This entertaining contest was played at a lively pace throughout, and started with early Worksop pressure. A sign of things to come was an excellent block by Ryan Gothard, who sent a ball over the top of the Tiger’s defence. Liam Flanagan latched on to the ball but unfortunately his effort found the

April 28, 2019

NCEL Division One – 27th April 2019 Once again Christian Fox was forced to ring the changes as injuries and suspensions continued to take their toll. Michael Clancy was between the sticks, after last Saturday’s goalkeeping horrors, and Will Ramsay returned to right back,to allow Gary Lumley to return to the middle of the back line. Liam Flanagan dropped into the midfield, behind Alex Burton, with Ryan Woodhead, and Fraser Hansen providing width on the respective wings.  Selby Town FC 2 – 5 Nostell Miners Welfare Liam Flanagan 42’ Danny Edwards 10’ Alex Burton 45’ Jack Owen 23, 58, 65’ Kane Reece 35’ Attendance: 133 The match kicked off, and a period of low key play followed as each side felt their way into the

Report: Hallam 2-0 Selby Town

April 21, 2019

NCEL Division One – 20th April 2019 Despite going down to nine men, The Robins made their hosts work hard for a two goal win, in a match that was far too influenced, by a whistle happy referee.  Hallam FC 2 – 0 Selby Town FC Roebuck 61’ Bishop 86’ Attendance: 382 Hallam’s crowd means that their magnificent support sees them with the ten highest league attendances in our division. The referee’s performance earned him the accolade of the three worst refereeing performances seen by Selby Town fans this season.  The penultimate game of the season saw changes again, as Town struggled to put together a team. Ryan Woodhead dropped back to play right back, with Will Ramsay moving across into the middle of the back four. Danny Snaith returned
