Brigg Town 1 North Ferriby United 4

Pre-Season Friendly

Ferriby gained a comfortable victory against Evostik NPL Division One South side Brigg Town.

It took fifteen minutes for Ferriby to find their rhythm but then they took control of the game and were rarely seriously troubled by the home side.

Ferriby's first opportunity came after 16 minutes when Gary Bradshaw saw his low cross turned away  for a corner. Home keeper Tom Woodhead had to be alert to turn a Danny Clarke shot for a corner and then he just beat Ryan Kendall to a through-ball.

Russell Fry was unlucky to see his free-kick turned over for a corner by Woodhead.  As Ferriby continued to press, Bradshaw saw his overhead kick go narrowly wide.

Brigg only seriously threatened on one occasion when Alan Lamb's header went narrowly wide.

Kendall gave Ferriby the lead after 42 minutes when he sprung the off-side trap to slide the ball past the advancing Woodhead.

Jack Muldoon scored Ferriby's second with the last kick of the half when he hammered home Clarke's through-ball.

The second half continued in pretty much the same way. Ferriby continued to create chances. They almost scored when Woodhead fumbled on the line after the ball rebounded off a defender.

Muldoon scored Ferriby's third in the 64th minute when he hammered home a cross-shot from the left corner of the penalty area.

Ferriby's final goal came two minutes later. Nathan Peat started a move in his own half then Lee Morris and Muldoon worked the ball to the right where Steve Gardner ran on to the ball to lash a low drive beyond Woodhead

Brigg scored a consolation goal six minutes from the end when Danny Buttle fired home a penalty after a foul on Phil Jackman.

Ferriby manager Billy Heath will have been pleased with the quality of his side's goals and for the improved performance after last week's narrow win at Belper.
