Report: Selby Town 11 – 2 East Hull

February 23, 2020

NCEL Division One – 22nd February 2020

Selby Town moved into pole position of The NCEL division one on Saturday with an incredible 11-2 home win against bottom side East Hull.
The struggling Humberside team have conceded no fewer than ten goals a couple of times this season, but this was the first time they had conceded eleven. Indeed if overworked goalkeeper Rahim Russlr had not produced a couple of first class second half saves things could have been worse for the visitors.
Town were 7-1 up at the half time break with goals from Casey Stewart, Liam Flanaghan, Josh Rogerson, and Sam cable. Josh Ward hit a hotly disputed penalty home, but further goals from Stewart, Flanaghan, and  Josh Walker did more damage in the second half despite a second for Hull from Iuri Braz.

A howling wind blowing across the pitch greeted the players as town opened strongly with Flanaghan heading a Josh Rogerson cross well wide. Cable also headed a cross wide.
Town took the lead on 8 minutes when visiting defender Andy Watts climbed all over Walker in the penalty area and Casey Stewart easily beat Russlr from the resulting penalty kick.
Stewart got his second  minutes later when Russlr tried to clear with his foot but the ball fell straight to Stewart who rifled in.
The keeper then beat Cable to a through ball, but on 16 minutes it was three to town when a quick move down the left saw Walker move the ball to Stewart and he flicked the ball through to Flanaghan who had the easy task of drilling the ball home.

After Walker saw a first time effort somehow cleared off the visiting goal line it soon became four goals for town when Josh Rogerson swept the ball home from six yards when he met a lovely right wing cross.
Walker saw a shot saved at the second attempt by the goalkeeper and a Rogerson cross shot landed on the roof of the net before town got their fifth and, Flanaghan his second. Superb build up play ended with Flanaghan being fed a sumptuous ball from Stewart and he easily beat the keeper.
Dylan Parkin had hardly been troubled in the home goal but Josh Ward just beat him low to his left with a penalty on 35 minutes. Josh Rogerson was harshly adjudged to have fouled a Hull player in the home penalty area and the referee adjudged that a goal scoring opportunity had been denied and Rogerson was sent off.
However town hit back immediately. Stewart’s quick feet on the edge of the penalty area confused the Hull defenders and the ball fell to Walker whose first time shot was blocked by the keeper but Cable followed up to hit home and then minutes before the break the hosts got their 7th. Flanagan saw his driven shot pushed away by the keeper but the loose ball was collected by Stewart who hit the ball into the net.

As the second half opened Hull scorer Ward found himself in a good place but fired wide. Town then came back immediately  and Flanagan hit a cross in that Josh Walker expertly clipped into the net for town’s eighth goal.
Immediately from the restart poor town defending somehow saw the home defence caught out and substitute Iuri Braz hit the ball home. 
The visitors had another chance when David Watts could only prod the ball wide when well placed and they were made to pay minutes later when some superb passing movements ended with Stewart notching his fourth goa via the goal post.

Within a couple of minutes Flanagan got his third goal of the game and 98th career goal for town when he hit a shot from 22 yards out that slipped under the diving Russlr.
Town were going for more now. Cable hit an effort wide and sub Charlie Clamp had a couple of efforts just clearing the cross bar. Russlr denied Clamp and Stewart with good saves but the keeper was relieved to see an audacious  Stewart effort from the half way line end up on the roof of his net.
Josh Walker got his second goal of the game, and wrapped the scoring up when receiving the ball on the edge of the penalty are and he finished confidently past Russlr.
Another great attendance of 348 (highest in both NCEL divisions) for the game at a very cold Richard Street and hopefully there will be another good gathering on Tuesday night when town entertain Hallam 

Next Saturday town make the trip to Bradford when they meet up with Campion, another side looking for promotion. Your support would once again be appreciated as we strive for promotion.

    Stating the obvious East Hull played badly. The whole team, defence, midfield and attack. Their keeper made 4 quality saves, 1 of premiership quality. Selby Town will have to play a lot better In their next 2 matches against and Hallam & Campion. Still, ST are well placed.
