North Ferriby United 4 Frickley Athletic 0
Ferriby gained their first league win of the season with a dominating performance against Frickley Athletic.
Ferriby went close twice in the first five minutes with free-kicks from Russell Fry and Nathan Peat evading everybody in the penalty area.
Nathan Peat then fired over following a good move down the left. Peat was involved again when his free-kick was met by Gregg Anderson whose header was held by keeper Tom Woodhead.
Ferriby continued to press with Peat and Liam King having shots blocked. Jack Muldoon headed a Russell Fry corner against the underside of the Frickley bar but the ball bounced out.
Ferriby were finally rewarded for their pressure in the 22nd minute. Russell Fry's corner found Anderson at the far post and the defender headed home.
The Villagers continued to press with Danny Clarke twice going close. Jack Muldoon latched on to a mistake by Luke Jeffs but fired wide.
Ferriby got the second goal they deserved in the 44th minute. Ryan Kendall found King on the right edge of the area and the midfielder fired home into the top corner.
Frickley only managed one real opportunity in the half but Jimmy Ghaichem's shot was blocked.
The second-half began with Ferriby pressing once more but Frickley gradually came into the game. Adam Nicklin turned Jake Picton's shot over. Inderjeet Aluja then had a shot blocked and Ghaichem saw Nicklin save his shot.
Frickley were fortunate not to concede a third goal when Woodhead fumbled the ball only to see it rebound into his arms off a defender as Ferriby forwards pounced in for the kill.
Ferriby began to take control again and effectively killed-off the game in the 66th minute. Gary Bradshaw's overhead kick was blocked but he reacted quickly to hook the rebound past Woodhead.
Bradshaw, twice, and Peat had further opportunities for Ferriby. Frickley's sole reply came after Glynn cotton played-in Ghaichem but his shot was turned away for a corner by Nicklin.
Danny Clarke scored the fourth in added time when he latched on to Morris to place the ball past Woodhead.
This was easily Ferriby's best performance so far with every player playing his part. With the defence and midfield closing Frickley down, they were rarely troubled.
Manager Billy Heath commented, "I was reasonably pleased today. It was certainly good to get our first league win."
