Hull Saints 2 - 2 Hull United Development

Hull United travelled to Bishop Burton looking to get back to winning ways after last weeks loss. This week we had made some changes, having 3 17 year olds in the back 4, with Pete Stalled, bringing the average age down to 30. The first half was a hard fight between 2 teams looking to take home the 3 points and it was Hull Saints who took their chance just before the break when the striker cut in from the left and hit a hard low shot into the bottom corner from outside the area, with the United defence unable to close down the forward, 1-0 half time to Hull Saints.

United started the quickest in the second half, a long throw from Paul Goldie, which was flicked on by Max Slide resulting in Junior Mussa B smashing home a volley from close range 1-1. United’s second goal came from the same combinate, but this time it was Jimmy Hall on the end of the flick on, smashed home from close range with the Left foot. 1-2 united.

As the game progressed it started opening up and started to get a bit firstly. Saints got the final goal of the game when their striker reacted quickest off a great save from Jonny Alsop, to tap in the far corner. 2-2.

Final score 2-2, a fair result in reflection.

Man of the Match Ben Sawdon, one of the young lads who played in the back four, absolutely solid at the back putting in some great tackles and fighting spirit.
