Playing on a heavy pitch, with gusting winds, both teams struggled to get the ball down and play, however it was Withernsea who got the opening goal after 27 minutes when a united attack was broken down deep in Withernsea’s half, a quality ball splitting the united defence, for their striker to round the keeper and top home, 1-0 Withernsea.

United hoping to get a reaction in the second half, after what can only be described as a lacklustre performance in the first half. However they punished united from some poor defending just 5 minutes into the second half, as the winger evaded the defenders on the by line to drill a ball across the area for a simple tap in, 3-0. Hull United’s keeper pulling off a couple of good saves was the only thing keeping the score line down.
The remainder of the second half was a comfortable one for Withernsea who out battled a poor performing Hull United team. Man for man Withernsea deserved the win which was a comfortable day. 3-0 final score.
