Hull United AFC – Hull's only community owned football club

Women's Development V Bridlington Rovers Ladies

This Sunday the ladies played Bridlington at home at Haworth park. In the reverse fixture United beat the visitors in a close 1-0 game. The home side started well and it didn’t take long for a long ball from Ayre to find Ibbotson who calmly took the ball down and slotted it into the bottom left corner. The home side dominated the game and the second goal came soon after the first. With some more brilliant play down the right from Whitfield and Workman lead to an Ibbotson cross and a brilliant Kerrison finish. Kerrison soon bagged her second with another Ibbotson cross finding her in the box. Just before half time Walker Muff Burke and Hughes replaced Okpeta and Kerrison. Both soon made their mark with Hughes assisting Walker Muff Burke on her return to the squad after illness.

The half time whistle blew 4-0 to the home side.

The second half started and Bridlington had a bit more of the ball. However the hull United defence along with Cooke in goal dealt with everything brilliantly! With half an hour left to go the score remained 4-0. Up stepped captain Pinder with a rocket from 35 yards leaving the keeper with no chance. Less that 10 minutes later United were awarded a freekick on the left hand side a couple of yards in from the byline. Ayre whipped it in aiming for the back post and the ball went straight into the net. For the remainder of the game United kept control, despite the consistent pressure and hard work from the visitors.

The final score was 6-0 to the home side, leaving them 5th in the table.

Player of the match went to Anya, her work down the right wing cause Bridlington no end of problems and create us lots of chances with a goal and 2 assists.

Next week the ladies face Hall Road for the fist time in the league this season at Haworth Park. We lost 2-1 to them in the cup in what was a very close game, so this should be a great game, one the girls are looking forward to.
