Unbeaten Anlaby Rangers travelled to the east coast to take on Bridlington, a trip that has resulted in heavy defeats the previous two seasons. Starting the game playing up the slope and into the wind Anlaby knew the first half was going to be a backs to the wall effort. However it was Anlaby who created the first chance of the game when a ball over the top found the inform Alfie Sumpton who tried to lob the keeper but the ball drifted just wide. After 16 minutes after a scramble in the area the ball fell to Kieran Butler whose shot trickled just wide. As the half progressed the Anlaby defence continued to thwart the Bridlington attack while Jack Mortimer battled hard in midfield. Anlaby created the best chance of the half when Ben Spencer exchanged passes on half way before sprinting clear on the Bridlington defence, dragging the shot wide with only the keeper to beat.
Anlaby came out in the second half determined to make use of the elements in their favour but this proved tricky with several attacks breaking down when balls where over hit and ran to safety. Sumpton continued to work have and as Anlaby rang the changes there continued to look like only one winner. Chances fell to Jack Murphy and Owen Fletcher but the Bridlington keeper was in fine form.
Eventually the deadlock was broken with only 5 minutes remaining. The goal didn’t match the occasion but as the old saying goes they all count. A shot from Man of the Match Jack Murphy was cruelly deflected past the helpless Brid keeper and Anlaby deservedly returned home with 3 points in the bag, maintaining their perfect start to the league campaign.
